“cozy, clean, friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2008

My family and I spent 6 nights at this hotel and were pleased with the amenities and the service. The price was very reasonable and the booking process was painless. The hotel is clean and cozy. It is a good starting ground to visiting Belize because the staff can help arrange tours to different sites. The owners and staff are friendly and willing to answer any questions, make recommendations about where to eat, etc.

Definitely one of the best hotels in Orange Walk. Rooms are clean - although a little basic - but the air con works, sheets were clean and the shower was hot! We had a suite with kitchen facilities - everything you needed was there for you. Hotel is well located. Staff were very friendly and helpful - and also provided really good advice for eating locally. They helped organise trips in the area - all well-priced and well organised.

Best value in town. We checked out a few before deciding on this hotel. Rooms are clean, no frills but have all that you really need.

Staff is really friendly and helpful, the tour guides for the Lamanai tour will pick you up right from the hotel.

Over all great value if you are just passing through the town.

  • Liked — Great value for the price.
  • Disliked — It is definitely not a resort type of place.

Hotel de la Fuente is a friendly, clean, comfortable, classy, and beautiful hotel! It provided the perfect location to relax and plan during two weekends of a 3-week service project in the Orange Walk area. Close access to the New River, Lamani, and the interesting Orange Walk town made our time there seem like a vacation, while the wireless internet connection allowed us to carry-out the necessary planning and contact home.

Orlando and Cindy were the most gracious of hosts, sharing many lenghty conversations with us in the lobby through which we discovered the best ways to experience Orange Walk and Belize as a whole. The remainder of the staff was equally helpful, even volunteering to watch our belongings one evening when we were unexpectedly in Orange Walk with nowhere to rest. Of course we knew we could turn to our friends at Hotel de la Fuente. The everpresent security makes stayers feel safe throughout their time at HDLF.

By the end of our stay, Orlando had even invited a tennis player from our group to play with his club, invited us to his home, treated us to a meal, showed us where to purchase the best hammocks, and explained the politics of Belize to us! Even a tenth of this hospitality would have made for an excellent stay! Hotel de la Fuente is an incredible hotel at an incredible price!

Please eat some of the complimentary sweet breads, bananas, and mangoes for me when you stay at Hotel de la Fuente.

After riding the old school busses throughout Belize, Hotel de la Fuente was the perfect place for us to call home for our next six days in Orange Walk. We were a group of 9 students and 2 professors implementing a research appraisal for the friendly town. Since we were all backpackers, we were expecting budget accommodation (basics). We were all pleasently suprised, the owners greeted us right away and took us up the stairs to the beautiful hotel rooms. It was lovely to finally have air conditioning, which you will greatly appreciate in this hot, sweaty country:), we had two fans, beds were cleaned daily (although you did have the environmentally friendly option to have your sheets cleaned only when you requested) and hot and cold water:) Another bonus was also the complimentry bottled water that was supplied each morning. But above all, I would have to say that the owners Orlando and Cindy were the most hospitable people that we met while we were in Belize. On our last night there, the kind owners invited us over for a great bbq, and entertained us all night! We had a great time. I will never forget these people and I can not reccommend them enough! Enjoy

This place was right off of main street in Orange walk Belize.

The rooms were way above average even if you were just passing through. IT's more then a cozy stay there at a comfortable price.

The owners Cyndi and Orlando were great hosts to out of town travelers. Totally personable and very keen on making sure your stay there was nice.

Recommended some great restaurants in the area. Alos if you are going to book the Laminai Tour go through them. The boat to Laminai goes write from the hotel.

  • Liked — the rooms were well kept and the staff was awesome!
  • Disliked — The dirt roads to get there...

first time in Belize, did not know Orange Walk area. Arrived about 4:15 PM met by Orlando de la Fuente. He showed us the first floor accomodations I had asked for and then gave us another choice upstairs. Room was comfortable, had a refrig., private bath, was newly decorated and a very good value for the expense. Looked around town and didn't see another property that was in as good a condition. Orlando directed us to the local Bakery...Yumm, grabbed up some extra goodies as the bakery doesn't open early enough in the morning to get fresh ones to go with coffee. That would have been nice. Wife Cyndi actually operates the hotel, she is very friendly and a pleasure.
