We absolutely loved this 6 room, family run hotel! It was immaculately kept, comfortable beds with really good linen and pillows, large bathroom and great shower! No water pressure or temperature problems. Great AC. Excellent location 5 min. walk to pretty much everything in town. Having a well stalked beer cooler with beer for sale on the main floor was...

The rainforest haven is located 5minute walk from the center of San Ignacio. The managers were really nice and helpful - they upgraded us to a better room at no cost and set up a tour of ATM cave with guide Luis who was the best! The building itself is beautiful with lots of marble tiling and a great rooftop...

Great location right in town. Very friendly staff. Loved the roof top. We were in room 5 the only room on the top floor and it is beside the kitchen. Came in handy for cutting our pineapple wine opener and we used some cups.Shower wasn't great but they were trying to fix it. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars

Great hotel just a block from town. It's close enough to everything, but far enough from the noise of the center. You get a lot for the price here. There's cold AC and a minifridge. The rooms are clean. The family that runs the hotel are also very sweet and will take care of you. We booked our tours through...

We stayed with them for 5 days Extremely nice people, great large cabana suites! A good base to do several tours. It felt like home. Nice balcony, roof access with hammocks. Very accommodating, always there when I needed them. Laundry service available. Very nice to have a 5 gallon complimentary purified water, saved us trips of getting water every day.

This is a great little hotel. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were given a free upgrade, because the hotel wasn't full. We have been living in Belize for 4 months now without A/C. It was super nice to come back from Cahal Pech and chill out in the A/C for a while. The apartment was super clean....

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
