Even though I arrived at the hotel at 0600, I was invited in and made welcome. The place was busy, since the USAF occupied a number of the rooms. They offer a little buffet breakfast between 7 and 9 AM. They have a helpful local map available, too. I had a standard room with a double bed. Unfortunately, because of my timing, I ended up with the smallest rooms are in the hotel, but a/c, WiFi, and a tiny TV was available. They told me that they are upgrading in time. The bathroom was clean, small, functional, and fully equipped. All in all, this is a good value for the money. If you desire more space and, I would presume, larger TV screens, the new addition would be the way to go. Also, nearly complete, there is a riverside resort that will open doors by the start of this year's tourist season, that is part of this hotel and looks perfect for families and those into nature excursions. Lamanai tours are readily arranged by the hotel. As always, more on my website at cosmic-pearl.com.
