We chose the Casablanca because of the many positive reviews on this web site. It met all our hopes and expectations! Simple, not luxurious, but all the basics. The location was also perfect for taking walks & seeing everything in the town. We had clean rooms with A/C, and extremely concerned & friendly service every time we had a question or need. One of our group needed a new swimsuit and Betty, the owner, knew exactly which 3 shops in town might carry them and told us how to get to each one. Elias (a tour guide with headquarters in Casablanca's lobby) is a treasure, and let us know on Friday night about the Saturday morning farmers market just a couple of blocks from the Casablanca. He also took us on an excellent day trip to Tikal, making the border crossing into Guatemala as easy as a trip to the post office or bank at home.
People in San Ignacio were charming and Casablanca was just the perfect place to return to as our home base. The restaurant directly across the street from Casablanca was the best we tried in San Ignacio, so I'm sorry we didn't eat there until our last day. San Ignacio is a great little walking town, friendly people up and down the sidewalks, a true gem, and Casablanca was all we could wish for in a San Ignacio home away from home.
From my prior web research, my one hesitation was whether there would be lots of street noise. There wasn't.
