“Nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

My stay here was great! I came to Belize with My Dental Team for a Mission trip, we had the whole place to ourselves!! it was small nice and very clean!!! The rooms were always stocked with clean towels and the bed was always made! (I know you are supposed to make your own bed but we were on a mission getting up at the crack of dawn) The people their were very friendly and always had a smile on their face! the food is amazing!! you have to try pops and Hoodies if that the correct spelling!! Belize is a beautiful place you must go there!!! I stayed her June 2012.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel, it was a step up in price and accommodations compared to the other hotels I usually stay at in San Ignacio. My room was very nice and the general location was
near the other tourist necessities like restaurants, shops, and banks. It was very clean and the staff was very helpful. I wouldn't think twice about staying here again.

I went to St.Ignacio to stay for 2 days at Martha's Guesthouse and ended up staying much longer. The staff was very attentive and my room was spacious and clean. The location is perfect as it is close to the action of Burns Avenue but not directly over it. They arranged transport to the Guatemalan border and on to Tikal that was effortless. I left a very expensive dental appliance in my room and the maids retrieved it and it was put on a plane for San Pedro. A very well run and safe establishment

Overpriced. Didn't even include any free bottled water, as every other hotel, even the most inexpensive we stayed at,,did. Martha's was also the only one which did not have a computer for guests.
It was very clean. However, a poor deal compared to others in the area.

I stayed in a small suite on the second floor. The room was adequate, with the basic necessities such as towels, soap and hanging space.

Location of the guest house is good.

I had three concerns:

1. Noise from the upstairs room. The floor upstairs may have been timber, because I got very little sleep from constant and loud noise from people walking.
2. I found the owner unfriendly, abrupt and unhelpful.
3. I had a vehicle and there is a small parking area adjacent to the guest house. However, it is effectively on the road, not secure and very dusty.

Stayed 2 nights @US$60+tax per night, in Marathas Inn annex. It is 300 yards north on Burns Avenue extended, 5 minutes walk to center. Good a/c room, kitchenette, quiet area. Reasonably secure parking by room. Attentive staff.

San Ignacio is very authentic Belize. We stayed here at the Guesthouse in the "first lady" Suite. It was very large, top of the building, great views. Huge balcony w hammocks, city views, chairs. Large room with a couch, two queens, fridge, bathroom. No AC in that room though, so beware if u cant hack it. Two large stand up fans and I believe over head fan, but not positive about that one. It was comfortable enough, but hot still. All of the other rooms have AC, but we wanted to max and relax up on the top and enjoyed it very much. Cute stairwell with beautiful vines in the windows. Lovely people.
