“Great Hotel near town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We stayed at Tia Maria for a few nights and we're pleased with our choice. The hotel is very close to town, a 3 minutes walk from all the restaurents and attractions on Burns ave (main street). The rooms are clean and quite spacious. The AC was very welocmed since the thermometer grew to 45 degrees celcius. The owner / host was super nice and helpful. Great value for the location.

Emelda was wonderful and very accommodating. Very simple rooms but clean and relatively cheap. Available air conditioning and stand up floor fan were in every room. Two blocks to the Main Street so easy to walk to but not as noisy at night. Was able to make international calls on Emelda's cell phone paying her for the minutes used.

Very tidy, attractive, and yet in downtown. This hotel provides a clean and reasonable place to stay. The owner is right there keeping an eye on the place and she IS engaged in the process. A kitchen w/ 'fridge is there. The big market is a short walk so you can cook a good meal, yet there are numerous restaurants near by if you aren't motivated to cook. The balcony is delightful to just sit and read for those lazy moments/days.

Noise is always a Belizian issue but this Hotel is far enough from the noisey bars to be safe. Dogs are always an issue, if you travel in Belize I suggest earplugs and "sound barriers" (headphone like earcovers). Mosquitos are always an issue too, I would bring a 'swatter' if I go to anywhere in Belize, this area was the least troublesome-but repellant is a MUST HAVE. AC is an option, but we didn't need it during our stay.
Hotel Tia Maria and San Ignacio was our favorite and most relaxed place to stay in Belize.

Room Tip: Rooms are all on the cooler side of the building. Emelda, the owne, is a straight forward type of pe...
