“Got what we paid for”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for a week and considered moving after the first night, but stuck it out.

We are used to sleeping in 80 F heat with no A/C and we found the room stifling the first night. We asked for a second fan the next night and spent the rest of the week with one point into each side of the bed.

As stated in other posts, the windows are wooden louvers - so either they are open and you get breeze, but the world can see in, or you close them and sweat.

We also had a gecko crawl through a crack in the wall on our first night, who proceeded to bring his friends in all week. They would chirp and chase each other all night.
We were woken up every morning by the birds jumping around on the metal grate on the roof.

Previous posts mentioned the lack of water in the shower, which we experienced the first two days. The middle two days of our week there was plenty of hot water, then it was back to a cold trickle for the rest of the week.

Would definitely recommend a flashlight / torch for going out at night. The sidewalk is dark and uneven at this end of town. Also the power in the village went out twice while we were there.

Pros: helpful staff, fridge, second fan on request, hammock and washing line outside, PRICE.

Cons: see above, plus ants in the bathroom, and yes the barking dog, but the white noise of the fan drowned it out.

Would stay again for a night or two, but not longer.

Stayed June 2013, traveled with family

Simple very very clean and totally affordable! If you are looking for TV, AC and a place in the middle of the small centre... Look elsewhere!
Nice couple runs the place very welcoming, appreciable and helpful.
The building is close to the sea with a
Nice patriot where you can enjoy the sunset and the place.
I am glad I found it.

I've spent two nights at this hotel and everything was just perfect. The owners are nice, friendly and helpful. Thank you Slavek ! (Díky Slávku, v ATM jsme se nakonec neutopili - vynikající zážitek, díky za tip)

This place is well priced in an expensive part of Belize. Tje room was cleaned daily and towels changed too. The owners were happy to help. Yes, it is alittle way out of the village but it is an easy and pleasant walk along to sidewalk.

Manatee Inn is comfortable and affordable. All the other places were charging $50 in the low season, and we only paid $32! The owners were so kind and helped us plan out our snorkeling trip. They have bikes for rent as well. I love that the room has a fridge and coffee maker! It's just a short walk from the beach. Check out the round worship center on their street, it's a fascinating little place with great acoustics if you're a singer!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are the best!

Me and the missus stayed here for three nights in low season, and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to suit our budget!

32US a night for big spacious room, en suite, terrace with hammock, fridge, strong fan and hot shower. It is close to town and the beach, but nice and quiet at the same time. The owner Slavek is a real nice guy too and was happy to help in any way.

Would definitely recommend, wish we were back there!

I spent two weeks there at the Manatee, and was extremely pleased with the service and room. It was located away from the noisy parts of town, but close enough to walk. The beach was located about 300 feet from the hotel. The owners were always available for information and help as needed. The room was breezy, and equipped with a good floor fan and refrigerator. The room was very clean, and linen was provided daily. I would recommend it. I addressed the barking dogs with a shout and someone must have caught on because they didn't bother me anymore!

Room Tip: Rooms 3 & 4 were comfortable and breezy.
