Rainforest Haven Inn
Ranked #3 of 35 San Ignacio B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 March 2013

There was no room at the inn so we got the cabana across the road. We could still use the facilities at the hotel, but got the cabana with sitting room/ kitchen and bedroom all to ourselves. We didn't see inside the hotel rooms, but agree with the other reviews about the staff and views from the roof.

A great option for staying in San Ignacio

when I got there I was sceptical about being so in the middle of town, but when I started talking to d shamera n geroge, they made me like family and they started pointing out all the stuff I have access to withing a minute walk. The room was amazing and unique n the view at night... d lights of the town and still the lights if d stars. And they were so helpful to find tours for us. After a day of adventure I got a well needed pedi that was right downstairs ( thanks patricia)! They offer everything and for the price... I am sure I got d better end of the deal! U guys r d BEST!

I really enjoyed my stay, the rooms are very comfortable, perfect place for a weekend get away. the hotel price was very affordable, and was really close to the down town area and all the restaurants and shops, we also had access to the roof top which gave an awesome view of the town.

Very comfortable hotel, close to all the restaurants and shopping of town. We had access to the kitchen for cooking, refridgeration, making coffee in the morning,etc. which was right beside our room on the top floor. The managers were very pleasant and accommodating. We loved the location, sitting up on the top deck overlooking the bustling little town of San Ignacio in the coolness of the evening. The price is extremely good value, nice and quiet from within, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Will definitely stay there again next time we come

Room Tip: We had the top floor room, next to the kitchen. A little bit of stair climbing but well worth it. Ni...

This was my first time in San Ignacio and the owner answered all of my questions via email prior to my arrival. She was so helpful. She lives next door with her husband so they are always available if needed. The rooms are on the 2 - 4th floors and it's a secure building. It's convenient to go into town, about a 5 minute walk. Wifi is free, there's cable tv, only thing is I wish the hot water were hotter and the pillows softer... but it was a great place and reasonably priced.

This is a great place to stay while in San Ignacio a little further out of town yet still within easy walking distance. We moved here from a Hotel on Burns Ave to get more space and a little more quiet.
Although to be honest nothing is really quiet in San Ignacio it is a busy place with trucks, buses, dogs, roosters and the occasional bar........ especially just before Christmas.
We had room # 5 which is on the third floor, sharing that level with the communal kitchen and the huge rooftops. Perfect places to watch sunrise, sunset, the stars and the world go by.
All guests also have access to a big lounge with TV, sofas and a big dining table as well as the one in the kitchen. So great place for a group.
Our room was also super clean, huge, with 2 comfortable double beds, large bathroom, soft fluffy towels and even fresh flowers on arrival.
The managers are also super friendly and helpful, all in all great value and location.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Unlike a new hotel, the Rainforest Haven Inn in San Ignacio, Belize is an historical structure, formerly home to Busman Arnold, a Belizean entrepreneur. Each room is unique with air conditioned, cable TV, private hot and cold bath, mini refrigerator and free WiFi. What makes us unique is that we are the only accommodation in the downtown area that offers a roof deck with a 360 degrees view. Perfect to drink your morning coffee or relax in a hammock with a drink. 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 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. On site there is also Traveller's Maya Juice (education rum tasting room), Marie Sharp's Tourist Center & Culinary Class (come cook like a local), and a gift shop. ... more   less
