When we started planning our trip to the Cayo district of Belize, my husband and I had planned to stay at one of the jungle lodges in the area. In the interest of saving money and being able to explore on our own, we decided to stay at Martha's and what a great decision that was! The guesthouse is located... More

Easily one of the best places we stayed during our 3 week tour of Belize. The only downside, and it's no fault of the management, is that the traffic on the surrounding streets is loud. I mean, wake you up from a sound sleep loud unfortunately. Other than that, it is super clean, friendly staff, and Continental breakfast included.

This was our basecamp for our travels around inner Belize for a few days. Compared to everything else available in San Ignacio, it was a great place to stay. We wanted the best room possible, so we went with the upper level. Little did we know that this was the only one without air conditioning, but we stuck with it... More

I only ate at Martha's restaurant, but it was delightful! The staff was very happy to help and had a good sense of humor! I had their nachos and they are delicious! Much better than any nachos I have had! We loved them so much we went back a second time. Both times we ordered off the appetizers and it... More

While the rooms here aren't unbelievable they are among the best in San Ignacio. The real charm of Martha's is the incredibly helpful staff. They are readily available to help you do anything from book a tour to figure out and help you confirm an accommodation in another city. Highly recommended

I was feeling apprehensive when I discovered they could only offer us a room at the inn as the guesthouse was busy, but i was stupid to worry. We were given a lovely studio apartment with its own little kitchen including fridge and microwave as well as a very nice bathroom. The bed was big and comfortable and we could... More

San Ignacio is a small town without many attractions inside the town. It's also not very beautiful or attractive. The town is in a good location for the attractions around it. We stayed at martha's for 4 nights. It is well located in the middle of San Ignacio, close to a few bars and restaurants, the bus stop and the... More

I had the strangest experiences ever couple of weeks ago. I was in San Ignacio working ( I have a tour-operator in Guatemala) and I had my clients staying at Mountain Pine Ridge. And one night I went for dinner at the Martha's guest house. It was good food actually. But since I was there I decided to check out... More

We stayed at Martha's Guesthouse from Feb 23-26th, 2015. I recommend the best way to make a reservation is by phone, so as to have immediate confirmation & assurance of a room. We enjoyed Martha's as it was very clean, with the charm of an older home. (Minor repairs needed, but none that reduced the quality of our stay.)The cost... More
