Very cheap accommodation and you get so much more than you pay for. The rooms are great- spacious, clean, comfy beds, good shower and surprisingly also a FRIDGE which makes a lot of difference on those hot days. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Knows a lot about the area so can point you wherever you need to go... More

We are so tired of staying at hotels that could be at any beach any where. Manatee Inn has its own unique character and local feel. We usually stay at higher end hotels loaded with amenities but we also feel we usually leave without a good feeling of what it is really like to be a part of the communities.... More

I stayed here on two different occasions during my four months in Belize. Service: During both stays, the owner Jarka made sure to accommodate our every need! For example, after leaving my beach bag in a nearby town the previous day, I was in desperate need of a few backup supplies until I could retrieve it. In his office, Jarka... More

We loved the Manatee Inn. This place is great value and the owners were very nice and helpful. It is about a 5-10 minute walk from the boat landing, where we arrived from Raggamuffin Tours. About 300 feet from the beach and about half the price of the places that were right on the beach. Make sure you book early... More

Manatee inn is well situated - close to the centre and a 1 min walk from the beach. It's a simple room set up but very good value. Only thing lacking was a full length mirror (pure vanity)and more comfortable pillows but something that can easily be addressed. The owner & his wife are very kind and go out of... More

A great spot, so close to the beach. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The owners Manatee were available if you needed any assistance. It an added bonus to have a hammock right on the deck, so relaxing. A quiet area, but a short walk to beach, bars, and restaurants.

I stayed at the Manatee Inn from December 5 through the 8th, 2014. I was in town for the End of the Year Marathon and wanted a clean, safe hotel at a cheap price. From the very start, I was impressed. Even though the rooms are simple, they have a clean, tropical feel. Loved the wooden plantation shutters and the... More

Our family spent a couple of nights at the Manatee Inn and were impressed by the service and the room. Rooms are big and clean and the owners do what they can to make you stay enjoyable. A 5 minute walk (or less) in to the community makes it close enough but not too close to the action.

Have spent a few nights in Manatee Inn during June 14 and have to say that for the money I paid I got a perfect service. Lovely room with a fridge (!!!) and perfect hot shower is pretty much incredible deal at this price level. Owners Slavek and Jarka were keen to help and helped me with laundry, directions and...

The Manatee Inn is right by the beach, and all stores and restaurants are in walking distance. If you're adventurous and traveling on a budget, this place is perfect! Jarka is very hospitable and helps you plan your stay. My boyfriend and I could not have had a better experience in Belize. No, there isn't a TV or air-conditioning, but... More
