We stayed here for 5 nights in May (I forgot to write a review at that time). Lovely place. We had rented a vehicle so getting to town wasn't an issue. Staff were friendly. Rooms were clean. We didn't spend a lot of time there as we were busy throughout the day. It was very quiet when we were there,... More

I knew Frankie's family ran a hotel near San Ignacio; he talked about on Facebook. So, it was the obvious choice to book when planning my tour of Belize to introduce and promote awareness of Rugby. But I also wanted to revisit some places I had last seen some 32 years ago. It's a tough business travelling around, talking to... More

Francisco was the friendliest, most helpful hotel owner I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He replied quickly to all of my emails while we were deciding on the best place to stay for our plans in San Ignacio, and gave great suggestions for excursions. The rate was very reasonable for both the room and the restaurant (delicious food... More

I traveled to Belize last year and had the best time so this year I went back. The Montero family is so welcoming and willing to go out of their way to make your vacation a memorable one. The hotel is family owned and operated. By the time you leave you feel like you we're visiting friends. Restaurant and bar... More

My family (wife and a teenager) were at the Rumors for 4 nights in early August. The hotel is about 2 miles from San Ignacio, not in walking range to downtown, but cabs are about US$5 each way, and very fast. It is in great location to visit the inland attractions like Caracol, Tikal, ATM, etc. There is a restaurant... More

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
