I have traveled to San Ingnacio several times and stayed on Burns ave before. The Tropicool is at the center of the action. I have stayed at other spots in San Ingnacio. For the economy traveler who likes to be near the action this is the spot to stay. Andrew[Walley] and Doris who I have met over the years will... More

If you're looking for a clean, well located, reasonably priced place to stay then this is a good bet. It's not overly fancy or atmospheric but it is practical and we enjoyed staying there. We stayed in cabana 1 in the garden which had a screened veranda area which was nice for sitting outside. The room had a double bed... More

Don't look any further, this is place is the best for the buck. its clean, its not fancy, its in downtown so you can walk everywhere. the bus terminal is five minute walk. restaurants, internet café, right behind the Re/Max Belize Property Center office. The owners are a wealth of knowledge.

We had the cabin with the screened porch which was nice to sit on, the bed was comfortable and the room clean. It was pretty chilly whilst we were there we wore our winter coats in the evening and it rained heavily on our first night. The hotel is in a good position and we spoke to the English owner... More

Simple and kind service, clean rooms and a nice laundry outdoor. And also super central as you are 50 mets away from main plaza and side by side with tour operators and restaurants. I definitively recommend it for any budget traveler staying in San Ignacio.

I had a single room with queen bed for $15 US per night, and i was right next to the bathroom. The fan worked quite well and kept me cool, though it was noisy. The hotel is on the main drag, so be aware that you will hear the nightlife. Also, there are a couple noisy parrots upstairs, so bring... More

We stayed in one of the bungalows. It was vey clean and worked perfect for us. Great value for a private room and bathroom. While we did not stay in the shared section of the hotel it seemed very clean as well. Rosa was very friendly and accommodating. Great location off the 'main strip'.

I recently stayed 1 night at the Tropicool and found it quite adequate. My room was a downstairs double with 2 windows and a ceiling fan...and it was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shared bath in the hall was clean...and it cost me a cool $15US. Fancy, it is not, but it's located next to the mainstreet (Burns... More

The Tropicool Hotel is not fancy, but the room was very clean, and the shared bathrooms were acceptably clean. It's right on the main, pedestrian street in San Ignacio, so there are lots of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. It was a little noisy from the nightlife, but it didn't bother us at all. As backpackers, we especially... More
