We stayed at Rumors for 4 nights. The room was spacious, clean, air-conditioned. We liked the in-room safe, the kitchenette and the comfortable furniture. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Rosy at the front desk did all of our tour bookings, providing us with the best guides like Edgar, Terri and Luis. The only drawback was that the hotel... More

Very nice, family owned, small resort. We had the premium room for 2 nights and found it very comfortable. The small kitchenette had the bare essentials, and the fridge was a definite bonus. Breakfast was the usual eggs, beans and plantains, but was adequate. We found everyone very friendly and helpful and would love to see how the property improves... More

Rumors was great the moment we arrived with rum punches waiting for us. Everyone we came in contact with was so friendly especially Jessica at the front desk. She called places, even our next hotel we were traveling to get us info, booked our tours, gave us suggestions and tips for dinner spots and activities, and even upgraded our room... More

We stayed here for four nights and we were very satisfied with the staff, food and everything else at Rumors. They set up our ATM tour as well as our cave tubing tour for a very good price. They provided us with great lunches both days too. Several times when we asked them to call us a cab they said... More

Enjoyed our 3 nights at Rumors very much. We were greeted with refreshing cucumber ginger drinks which I am hoping to replicate myself. They arranged great tours for us for 2 days with very knowledgeable guides and delicious lunches. The staff was very attentive and responded to all our needs. They went out of their way to make us feel... More

We stayed for 4 nights here in May, and were quite disappointed. Rosy was very helpful throughout but felt that she was pushing us to book tours and excursions with them - (we booked in town and got a really good deal!). Overall the hotel is sooooo outdated, the main restaurant look and feel is from the 80s, and it... More

My husband and I took a weekend getaway at Rumors and we truly enjoyed our stay there. The view from the balcony was so calming - lots of green with the backdrop of the Maya Mountains. The room was very clean, the attention to detail was nice and the kitchenette was useful. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended. Great... More

Rumours Resort The location is perfect if you are driving as it is quiet and scenic. In comparison to the other options the price seems fair; although high for what is offered. Positives: - the beds were comfortable (firm) - balcony was a pleasant feature and had a nice view of the landscape (the back rooms have this view; whereas... More

Judy booked Rumors online with the help of tripadvisor & lonely planet reviews. Good choice. Rosie, Jennifer & all the staff were so helpful & accommodating. They can book tours for you & while we had already booked our tours, I would not hesitate to use them. They are a short distancefrom town, however Pacz tours and probably most of... More
