We enjoyed our 3-day stay at Martha's and their central location made exploration of San Ignacio easy - restaurants, tour operators, the market, the bus depot, convenience stores and some attractions all with-in easy walking distance. The hotel itself is 4 stories and there are no elevators, but the rooms were clean, bright and spacious, lots of storage (wardrobe, shelves...

Martha's Guesthouse was the perfect hotel if you're looking to explore the town of San Ignacio and are looking to easily depart for day trips to the surrounding areas. Many of the nicer hotels/resorts in San Ignacio are located several miles outside of town, where you're stuck eating at the one restaurant that the resort has to offer and getting...

We ate breakfast here, The coffee was fresh brewed, came with milk, and was non stop. We sat outside,but the plants made it seem as if we weren'the sitting next to the street. Our waiter spoke excellent English and had time to tell us a bit about his life.

We stayed in a two room suite at Martha's and found it very comfortable. Many economy rentals in Belize are a little worn around the edges, but Martha's was not. The showers were warm. The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. The restaurant on the first floor cooked a fish meal for us with a fish that we...

This is a great little boutique hotel. It is family run, with Martha, John & John Jr almost always present. It is clean, safe and right in the middle of everything! Of course, that also means that it can be a bit noisy. We had to change rooms twice to get away from the traffic noise (it is on t.h.e....

We stayed at Martha's for a few days as our base in San Ignacio. No issues with our stay. Pros: Centrally located, free parking, well decorated rooms, super clean, A/C is a boon Cons: No breakfast. Not many breakfast options in town either.

Outside, Martha's doesn't look too great. But located right in the hub of the city, it was fresh, clean, with working air conditioning and free wifi and a balcony. It was across from a convenience store, and right next to the main street, which had restaurants and tour companies. One inconvenience was that it had no elevators and we were...

Martha and her team make a lovely home away from home for those who stay here. Each room is personally decorated and immaculate. Ours had a balcony and fantastic blue tiled bathroom. The Guesthouse is conveniently located for everything you need to do in San Ignacio, too. Highly recommend -- breakfast, though not included was also delicious!

Marha's is just up a block from the city center. It is a beautiful hotel with great rooms, mine had a balcony, and AC for respite from the sometimes draining heat. It has a restaurant open for breakfast and lunch. Beautiful wood and tile interior. Gracious, friendly hosts.
