This place is a bit out of the way. $5 us to town and $5-10 us cab ride back (too far to walk and the route isn't pedestrian friendly). It is a simple hotel, no frills but the room feels clean. The furniture in the online pictures is nicer than what is actually there, though what is there works just...

My daughter's family and I had the pleasure of staying at Rumors. She and her family had stayed there before. Staff recognized them and treated us like family. The family room we stayed in was large enough for the 5 of us to stay comfortably. Staff supplied anything we asked for and the hotel dog, I think his name was...

We had a great stay at Rumors right before thanksgiving. Any issues (minor) were taken care of immediately. The people were great. We enjoyed their patience with us as we asked a lot of questions about the area and their culture. We especially enjoyed Josh and Edwin. The setting was perfect for us-it's a bit out of town and we...

We had a very good experience at this family run hotel. The staff was extremely competent and helpful. They helped us organize a few excursions, allowed us to wash clothes for free using their machines, and were overall super accommodating. The hotel's outside grounds are nice, with beautiful jungle view (especially on the upper deck), and there is a swimming...

Had a great three night stay while exploring the ruins and ATM cave. From the time of our arrival everyone on staff greeted me by name and made sure we had everything that we needed. Cannot stress enough how professional and friendly the staff were. The room was very comfortable and the food in the restaurant was excellent. Would gladly...

This small hotel is full of smiles, helpful staff and people always asking if you need anything. The owner of Rumors knows how to pick and train his staff. As other reviewers have said, the view is great. Close to many exploration sites. On my next visit I must take one of their tours to Tical in Guatemala. The rooms...

The true is that you only come to San Ignacio if you're going to visit the ATM cave or one of the close by archeological sites. The town itself has nothing to offer (still we strolled by). So we booked at Rumors, which is actually outside town on the highway (a $10 taxi ride). The hotel started as a restaurant...

The staff was very helpful and knowledgable. I arrived late and asked if they could provide dinner and they came through with an excellent dish. The rooms were clean, neat, and cosy.

I highly recommend this hotel. It is about four miles away from center of town. But your taxi will take you there in no time (aprox. 8 minutes). When writing this review (Oct 2016), the taxi rate to the hotel was $10 Belizian. The hotel property and surrounding area are beautiful. You feel like you are close to nature. The...
