Tia Maria is an affordable hotel close to downtown San Ignacio. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to shops and restaurants. Also, it is located above a small mall. I had a room without air conditioning. There was a ceiling fan, which was adequate for most days, and an additional fan that I used on one day that got... More

A very warm welcome by the young owners. Looks like patio with the rooms at the first level all around, like spanish or Mexican house. Good prices in low season, good room with big TV, A/C on demand, several fans to be refreshed, clean. Not a really nice view from the room. Very nice terrace with chairs for relaxing. Big... More

The price was very affordable especially for a budget traveler like myself. It was my first time traveling and I felt safe staying at Tia Maria Guesthouse. The hostress was extremely friendly. There was a full kitchen with a refrigerator for everyone to use.

I cannot say enough about Emelda, our hostess/owner at Tia Maria. She is so sweet, friendly, and helpful. She was timely in responding to my e-mails and very willing to help by answering questions and giving suggestions when I was trying to decide on our itinerary for our stay in San Ignacio. If you are looking for a resort type... More

The hotel is located just a few blocks from the main bus terminal and general downtown area.

This place it the best. So happy with our choice to stay here for 12 nights. Rooms were very clean. The maid thoroughly cleaned the rooms everyday and continually cleaned the common areas. They also did our laundry for a small fee. We are very picky about mattresses. They were ok and we were able to sleep well. Emelda is... More

We stayed in Tia Maria for 3 nights on a recommendation from our tour guide. Though this place is a bit pricy for a backpacker budget (80 bzd/night). The very clean rooms, the terrace connecting with the very clean and tidy kitchen, and especially the owner makes this place worth your money. The owner was so friendly and helped us... More

This hotel is a hidden gem! It is conveniently located to all the shops and restaurants in the town yet it is located in a very quite neighborhood. The kitchen area is very easy to use for your meal prep and the verandah is excellent for dining and relaxing. The rooms provide a cozy environment and are reasonably priced. The... More

Emelda, I can’t thank you enough for making my month-long stay at the Hotel Tia Maria a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I feel like I’ve become a member of the Family. The rooms are amazingly comfortable, and well-appointed. The common areas (Kitchen, Veranda, and Reception) are welcoming, and often occupied by many of your very interesting guests from around the world.... More
