My wife and I made a last-minute reservation at Nefry's intending to stay one night but ended up extending our stay to 3 nights. It is a small, intimate location and the owners live on site with their family. The rooms are nice with very comfortable beds, an in-room hot and cold water dispenser with free instant coffee and plenty of hot shower water in the in-room bathroom. It was fun being in an actual neighborhood near downtown rather than right on the strip. We met the family's children and saw them getting ready for school all dressed up their uniforms. What really made our visit though, was the level of care and attention we recieved after my wife experienced a medical problem during our stay. The owner called his brother and got a recommendation for an excellent private doctor he had used in Belize City then called and made a reservation on our behalf and arranged a taxi ride for us to the doctor's office! The level of concern displayed made us feel like we were staying with friends. Highly recommended for an authentic friendly experience.
