Stayed twice at J&R. Love the cleanliness, the nice decoration details and Rosy, the owner. She showed me how to hand wash efficiently all my clothes and reuse the water. The single bed rooms n• 1 & 2 can be pretty hot. 2nd visit I met her daughter and grand children and had a great time with them. We shook... More

My boyfriend and I heard many good reviews of the guesthouse and chose to stay in a room with a double bed and private bath. The room was small and simple, but clean and was more than enough for us! There was a fan that made sleeping very comfortable. We stayed for 4 nights and came back from a days... More

The rooms themselves are basic but the elderly lady who got us settled was wonderful, a real Latino grandma! We felt at home straight away. The guesthouse is situated very close to the centre with a 2 minute walk to the main square and 5 minutes from the market. We chose to rent a car for 2 days and we... More

I stayed here in February and found it to be a lovely place. Close to everything you need but still in a quiet location. Rosa was a great host and her son Darien was very helpful when I made my reservation and with my onward travel plans. My room was a good size an everywhere was impeccably clean. Good communal...

We stayed 3 extended visits (several weeks each) at this guest house. It is very practical and the price is great! The rooms have a bed and something to keep clothing in. It was always spotless, even in the bathroom. The little kitchen is great and kept clean but each guest is to clean after themselves. They have a gas... More

I stayed twice in this lovely guesthouse and enjoyed it thoroughly. Located 3 blocks away from the center in a quiet little street, this little guesthouse won my heart. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The common areas (shared bath, kitchen, small living room, great tiled terrace) are welcoming and practical. Rosa is a very sweet woman.

The staff at J & R are very friendly and helpful. The room was a little small, but comfy, and there are a couple common areas that are nice to hang out in. The kitchen is basic, but very usable. The shared bathroom is kept very clean, and even has hand towels (a little luxury of home that's hard to... More

We stayed 2 nights just after Christmas (2014) - would have stayed a third, but we hadn't made reservations in advance, so they were booked up. The room space isn't particularly large, but we travelled light, and a private double is much preferable to a dorm with separate singles. I regret not getting to San Ignacio sooner as there is...
