An old colonial building on the top of the hill and main road in San Ignacio beautifully done up. This was one of my favourite 2 places when visiting Belize. We had a lovely, clean room with 2 big beds and an adjoining bathroom. We didn't get the shower to be very hot. The wifi worked fine. The rest of the building was also nicely done with a sitting room, a cosy kitchen with beautiful wooden furniture and big open hallways. Everything is tiled. The roof terrace is old and could probably do with some paint but many of the colonial buildings in San Ignacio are like and it makes the charm of the city. The view over the city is great.
The hotel is a bit difficult to find at first as people have stated but only because of the way cars have to drive. You can easily walk up from one of the 2 main roads in the city and it takes about 10-15 min. Shamera, the owner of the hotel, was incredibly helpful when we arranged our tours and also very nice. She was always up and around, no matter what time it was. :)
I would definitely stay here again when coming back to San Ignacio.
- 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
