I found this to be a very pleasant place to stay. It's family run and management was very friendly and helpful. For example, they arranged to have breakfast ready for me each day before the restaurant was actually open for service. The accommodations are somewhat basic, but everything was clean and functioned. Plus, it's an easy 5 minute taxi ride... More

Stayed one night at the rumors hotel and we were not impressed. We had a premium room but the shower was faulty but when we asked reception for help and we were told that this shower was tricky. They told us we could use another room to shower if we needed to. Also there were no cupboards to store anything,... More

rumorsmanagement, General Manager at Rumors Hotel, responded to this review

It is a fact that the hospitality industry is a very challenging one as there are many different personalities to deal with and not all of them are always able to be pleased. This, however; is the main reason why customer service and quality accommodations are our major focus at Rumors Hotel. The guest in this review has voiced his... More

I rented a room at this hotel for my boyfriend and I when we were in San Ignacio. The property itself is about a 5-8 minute drive from the city, which is perfect if you are looking for a more intimate setting or privacy. The woman at the front desk was extremely helpful in providing us with restaurant suggestions, tour... More

Beautiful establishment! Nice and clean with everything you need. Our room appeared to be recently renovated. Beautiful tiles throughout and nice decor. We had a blow dryer, mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. Plus air conditioning and a king size comfy bed, and a balcony. Will definitely stay here again. I was very impressed and surprised at... More

Our family of four recently stayed at Rumors Hotel (not really a resort) while visiting for four days in San Ignacio. The purpose of our trip was to visit the Mayan ruins nearby---the "jungle adventure" portion of our 10-day visit to Belize. Francisco and the staff were great to work with from the very first email, to our pick-up at... More

Francisco and Rosie were very accommodating and genuine. Francisco was very prompted in responding via email, and this is very important to start to build the rapport and trust before getting to a foreign country. I booked one single room standard with one double bed, it only cost $50 US per night which was less than all the other comparable... More

Stayed here for two nights prior to flying home from Belize City. Was the best budget-range hotel we stayed at on our trip through Belize and Guatemala. Got upgraded to a premium room at no extra charge. Rooms were very clean, new and well decorated. Had the best washroom on our trip as well. Beds were super comfortable. Management was... More

We stayed at Rumors in early December 2013. What stuck us first about our experience was how knowledgeable, open, and gracious Francisco was, the family member in this family-owned guest house who runs the business. Francisco personally picked us up from our guest house in Belize City and drove us to Rumors, in San Ignacio (about a 2 hour trip).... More
