“Nice hotel, no door to bathroom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

We stayed at the Deluxe (modern) Rooms. The rooms were nice with A/c but no door to the bathroom. I don't know if that's how the others were like but I found that a bit odd.
There is no safe so we had to bring most of our valuables with us.
The pool is very nice, especially on a hot humid day.
Downtown is a 10min. walk and can feel a bit scary at times since there are no street lights but we were fine. Compared to the other hotels in downtown, I am glad I picked Midas as it was overall nicer looking, the hotel staff were all very nice, and the owners even arranged a nice Christmas dinner with special present included. You can really tell that the owners want all their guests to enjoy their stay.

I booked a room at Midas but reading negative reviews here concerned me, so I ended up upgrading to one of the modern rooms. The room was very nice, large, and had a modern bathroom. I really liked the room, # 18. We were asked to stay on the path due to snakes, so we did, but we didn't see any snakes. It was great waking up to the sound of birds every morning. The rain was loud though when it hit the roof pitter patter loudly. Midas is only a 15 mins walk from the town center, so we had a ton of options for food. Overall we were pleased with our stay. My only complaint was that the lobby/front desk is not helpful. Their recommendations on places to eat were not that good, and when we spoke about booking a tour, the guy we spoke to barely made any calls, however we found someone helpful the next morning and were able to book our tour of choice. I recommend this hotel - nice rooms, good breakfast, reasonable prices, and close to the town center.

Room Tip: If you don't mind spending more, the modern rooms in guesthouse suites are nice.

This hotel was equivalent to camping in a log cabin. Their staff was rude and unaccomadating they could not get us to any activities that we wanted and every time we turned around they were charging us an up charge. The website shows pictures of nice rooms we stayed in a log cabin and our shower was cold. It was an extremely frustrating and disappointing because we were so excited to see this part of the country.

A good place to book the Midas is on hostelworld.com (I have booked accommodations through this site for my last three vacations and they have all come up very good).

We paid ~$65 US a night with taxes and service in for one of the huts. Clean sheets, hammock on the porch, room cleaned each night. Darren on staff very helpful. Great breakfast. Load up on the fry jacks.

Glad we stayed at the Midas because it is 5-10 minutes outside of town walking and therefore a little more quiet. If you want to party, stay at a place in town. The Midas does have a poolside bar and hot tub (opening soon). It is a big property so the rooms are away from this area out back with the palm trees. Nice and tropical.

Trips:
For Tikal in Guatamala I recommend Elias Cambranes (tikaldaytrip@yahoo.com). His office is at the Casablanca Hotel in town. He knows everything and gives a great experience at Tikal. Cheaper than the other tours as well.

ATM - we went with Pacz. No worries with this trip. Amazing.

Shuttle from airport: William Hofman - belizeshuttle@yahoo.com
He lives in San Ignacio and will go out of his way to help you. We had 8 people in our van and it was $25 US per person.

The people (especially restuarant owners and store keepers) were very helpful for whatever you need. We liked "Flayvas" for drinks and Han-Nah for food. Other places are great too, make your own trip. Remember, you are in Central America - short power outages and bumpy roads are part of the experience. Don't write reviews complaining about this stuff. Use purification tablets for tap water. And all the places we went to used purified water for the ice in the Rhum Punch! Belize it.

Room Tip: The huts outback - but it doesn't really matter, you shouldn't spend too much time in the ro...

We booked on line as Xmas was approaching and rooms were filling up rapidly in San Ignatio. We thought we were booking newly remodeled or new rooms. On arrival were put into two older bungalows with air conditioning but no hot water, questionable tap water for drinking but no glasses, two towels for three persons, and later found other guests with bungalows paid 50% less than the online price. We learned that there were some other options nearby but the 100% cancellation fee resigned us to staying.
Owners just added a new modern wing with pool and bar. Our advice is to call before booking to make sure you know what you are getting

A long bus journey from Chetumal to San Ignacio ended with my sister and I arriving to Midas Resort. Overall, it's a nice, clean place with a very good value, in the outskirts of town. At first we were afraid of walking into the town at night through a nearly deserted western highway, but the locals were helpful and San Ignacio is ladden with tourists, so no problem at all.
Our room was one of the cabanas with the porch. Though the bed was not as new as we would have wanted (our backs were tired after the bus ride and then the ATM cave tour), rooms were very tidy and having AC was a blessing given July's weather.

We didn't try any food from the hotel. The closest restaurant was Hode's, an excellent place for stuffing yourself with delicious food for a few dollars.

We traveled in August, so the AC and the pool were big pluses to cool off in the evenings. The room was comfortable, quiet, clean and safe. The use of internet service in the dining room was also a big plus since my hubby was working while we traveled. The staff was awesome and we felt they were genuine in their assistance to us. We told them we were looking for property and they connected us with several people who were selling properties. We would stay here again!
