“The View, the view, the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

We spent five days a Cahal Pech in the cabanas and loved every minute of it. It is an excellent place to stay and be able to visit the surrounding area and tours. The staff was very friendly and more than accomodating. You must have a massage on the veranda of your cabana. We had great fun at happy hour drinking local coconut rum and pineapple juice. We even left our suitcases in the manager's office for two days while we went to visit Tikal in Guatemala. We actually came back and stayed another night because we were late leaving Guatemala.

Room Tip: Stay in the Cabanas.

This is a very nice resort, which you do not need to leave during the day if you just want to relax. The restaurant is a little expensive for Belize (most meals from US$8-13), but everything we ate was delicious.

The bar and wait staff were very attentive and friendly. The front desk staff were nice, but I felt the service could have been better. The answered your questions but didn't particularly go out of their way.

The hammock in the cabana is a fantastic place to relax.

Room Tip: Cabanas near the top of the hill offer a great view and are easy to get to.

Having been in Belize for four weeks when we stayed here, I had become accustomed to warm and friendly service. This place was more like a typical motel in the states. Not unfriendly, but not particularly friendly either. We stayed in one of the cabanas. It was fine, if basic for the price. Smallest television I've seen in a long time, but it worked. Baths were clean, but no face cloths, or shampoo. Strange that it has a thatched roof and no windows, but had ac. It's a good place if you are in town to see the ruins. You can walk there. Also Xunun ta nich isn't far. Our feeling is this place is accustomed to tour groups, and may find individual travelers more of an inconvenience. Restaurant was inconsistent.

Room Tip: If you get a cabana, get one near the top of the hill. It's a climb to the lower ones.

We stayed at Cahal Peche for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Summary: The hotel is comfortable, the food delicious ,the staff superb and prices reasonable. It's a great base for exploring the region.

Details: Stay in a thatched roof cabana if you can. While furnishings are plain, the beds are comfortable and there is a separate bathroom. Our room had both a ceiling fan and A/C and flat-screen TV. Best of all there is a roomy screened-in patio with a hammock and a couple of deck chairs. It's wonderful to be surrounded by nature. While we had no problem with noise at night, a couple of friends in other cabanas were mildly annoyed by barking dogs and a crowing rooster.

The food in the restaurant is good. Breakfast is buffet style with eggs, potatoes, beans, fruit and other items. It's tasty, but if you get tired of the same lineup every day, you might try one of the restaurants down the hilll in San Ignacio for a change of pace. We would recommend Martha's and their banana pancakes for that. At Cahal Peche, the nachos appetizer is terrific and the dish featuring fish layered between fried plantains is a must try. From the bar, try their specialty drink -- a Belizian snow, which comprises white rum, triple sec, coconut cream, lime juice and lime zest.

You can relax at one of the three pools just off the bar/restaurant area and you can get pool towels at the front desk. You can book tours of ruins, cave tubing, etc.,right at the hotel desk. We went to the Xunantunich ruins with Kodi Ireland as our guide and we highly recommend him. He's very knowledgeable and friendly. The housekeeping staff visits every day. One little downside is that wireless internet is not available in the rooms. There are a couple of computers at the front desk for guest use and you can get on the net around the bar and restaurant area.

Be aware that the resort is at the top of a very steep partially paved road. While we walked into and out of town several times (and were greeted by nearly every person we passed), some people might find this physically challenging. Taxis are readily available at anywhere from $5 to $10 Belize (about half that amount in US dollars). The Cahal Peche ruins are literally within walking distance of the resort, only a short way down the hill. Be sure to visit the museum as well as the ruins.

I can't say enough about the resort staff. They are so friendly, helpful and hardworking and will make your vacation special.

Room Tip: Get a cabana.

My Dad, sister and I stayed in Blackman Eddy, one of the cabanas at the resort and enjoyed our stay immensely! The staff at the resort was so helpful in making activity schedules and booking our travel from/to Belize City and beyond! Beautiful resort, beautiful country and the staff even more so!

Great place to stay in San Ignacio. The staff are always accommodating and willing to help in any way they can. All their drivers were wonderful. We learned so much extra from them and they relay made the day trips extra special!

The food it top notch! Staff provided wonderful service and the food was always tasty. They even accommodated my pregnant need for plane old peanut butter and jam sandwiches! :)

The rooms were simple and well kept, not 5 star but how much time do you expect to stay in them. Walls are thin but any noise can easily be drowned out by the A/C Fan unit. Just remember to bring your own shampoo as it is not provided.

The hotel is located at the top of two steep hills. Walking down to the town center took 15-30 min and a cab ride was only about $4 US (well worth it!)

We had such a great time at Cahal Pech and it was the perfect place to start our tour of Belize!

Room Tip: Main Building rooms on the top floor provide a fantastic view of the surrounding area.

This is a good place to stay in San Ignacio, it is centrally located so that you can see many places and use this as your home base. We stayed four nights here. We were in the main building. My room was very clean.The bed was very comfortable. The food in the restaurant was very good. The staff was very friendly. There is a small store with souvenirs in the hotel. The prices are very reasonable.
