From the minute we checked in at the Rainforest Haven Inn, we were fans of the hotel. The staff and owner are extremely friendly and we were informed that we would be upgraded to a two bedroom apartment for our second night which was a pleasant surprise. The first night we were in a cottage which was nice, had a... More

Loved this hotel, very comfortable and clean. Everything worked as it should plus the hotel staff were very helpful. Good location, not too close to centre but it's a small town so no issues there. Would definitely stay here again if in town.

The room was huge. There is parking, but it is limited. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Ask them about places before you head out. DO NOT drive on any road without asking a local if it is safe. The street noise is a little loud. The water in the shower fluctuates, but it is such a big shower... More

I was very warmly greeted by Jorge, the owner. He took the time to show me around the hotel (the full-sized kitchen and rooftop deck complete with hammocks were very pleasant surprises).

The room was comfortable and spacious. The location was fantastic, in the centre right by the best restaurants and yet also slightly tucked away next to a Mayan chocolate shop. Dorita was extremely helpful - and so were the other staff members. However Dorita was not only accommodating, helpful, and efficient but she was also very generous with her time... More

We had a lovely stay in the 2-bedroom apartment at the Rainforest Haven Inn in San Ignacio, Belize!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unlike a new hotel with standardized rooms, the Rainforest Haven Inn in San Ignacio, Belize is an antique structure with varying room configurations. It was built as a private home and the three storage building with only seven-bedrooms has a more rustic feel. Each room is unique but aiming to make you feel at home. Rooms are equipped with air conditioned, cable TV, hot and cold bath and free WiFi. What makes us unique is that we are the only accommodation in the downtown area that offers a roof deck pool. Our guests have access to a full kitchen on the third floor which is perfect to make a quick meal, warm your food or make some coffee. We also feature a terrace that has a 360 degrees view of San Ignacio and is a lovely place to have your coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. There is also a beauty shop on the ground floor. The Rainforest Haven Inn also features daily room services for free, car rental services, and laundry services for a fee. We are about a 3-5 minute walk to restaurants, grocery shops, banks, tour agencies, bus terminal etc. Everything is very close without feeling like you are in the thick of it. Our attitude is to treat everyone as an individual and provide them with friendly and respectful service. We are passionate about making you feel at home. ... more   less
