I stayed here last June with my father and daughter on a family trip. We thought this place was awesome, but even more so once we explored San Ignacio further. The rooms are incredibly clean, seem fairly new/updated, and were equipped with a refrigerator and coffee maker. Quiet location and not a lot of rooms.
Pro #1 It's located just right off the PAVED highway/road and super close to downtown. Originally we wanted to stay in one of the posh jungle lodges located about 5 miles away from here. After exploring the area, we were so thankful and happy that we decided to stay at Rumors. The roads to these jungle lodges are unpaved and it takes about 30 minutes just to go 5 miles. After seeing how difficult it was to get to these locations, I determined the only way I would stay at one of them is if I had no plans of leaving the resort, which is very unlikely.
Pro#2 The people that run/own this place are so nice and overly willing to go out of their way for you. Every evening they would stop by our room to see if we were going to be dining with them for dinner/ breakfast the next morning. They also set up a guided and escorted tour to Tikal for us. We ordered breakfast to go since this started early in the morning and they hand delivered it to our room all wrapped up and ready to go.
Pro#3 Probably one of the most delicious breakfasts in the entire country.
The only negative thing I noticed about this place was the first night we stayed here. We were tired from driving all day and didn't feel like looking for a place to eat dinner, so we decided to eat at their onsite restaurant. When we arrived for dinner we were the only ones there and it seemed as if we caught them off guard. I believe they were out of multiple items on the menu. It may have just been because we were there during rainy season, not sure.
Overall, I would absolutely, most definitely stay here again!
