I loved staying at the TropiCool. At $15/night for a couple, I wasn't expecting much. Our room, while quite small, was spotlessly clean, very secure, and well-screened from mosquitos. We got fresh towels and soap every day. The shared bathrooms are also spotless, with reasonably warm (or at least not cold) showers. We stayed in a room, not a cabin, but those looked pretty nice too (and have private bathrooms, I believe). It's right in the heart of the "downtown" San Ignacio area, close to all the restaurants and tour companies. I was staying with a friend but I would have felt completely comfortable here as a single female traveller (very important!). It's a bit noisy at night because it's in a busy area, but it becomes very quiet once the restaurants and bars close. The bed was a little hard, but hey, at least it was bed-bug free. I would definitely stay here again.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tropicool Hotel has an away feeling even though it is only one block from the center of town. The property, which stretches between Burns Avenue and West Street, is dotted with flowering plants and fruit trees: guava, banana, plantain, lime, custard apple and more -- which add shade and coolness to the place. There are rooms with shared bathrooms, outside there are three individual cabins with private bath and cable TV, offering a little more privacy. Everything is meticulously clean from the outdoor sitting area to the bathrooms. This family-run hotel is well-established and includes a nicely stocked gift shop. Inside the hotel there is a bulletin board with helpful information on tours and activities in the area. ... more less
