My wife and I are looking at trip to Belize during the first week of November 2009. We are looking at accomodations in San Ignacio that offer queen size beds, air conditioning, maybe a pool, too. We have narrowed our search down to San Ignacio Resort Hotel (don't really want to pay more than this); Cahal Pech Resort; and Midas Tropical Resort.
We would be interested in hearing pros and cons of each of our possible choices. We like the idea of the cabanas at Cahal Pech, but have seen some reviews that report that the rooms are a bit shabby, maybe even buggy. The idea of a pool is attractive, but not a deal-breaker. And being close to town, but not necessarily in the heart of San Ignacio, is appealing, since we would like to sample several of the town's restaurants. The other consideration would be the availability of a shuttle between the airport in Belize City and the resort.
For each of these locations, there are far more positive than negative reviews, which makes choosing the "right one" more difficult. Maybe one isn't all the different than the others? Most important would be a comfortable bed in a clean, cool room in a location that will provide a restful night after touring ruins, cave tubing, etc.
Thanks in advance for your help!
