Cahal Pech Village Resort
Ranked #8 of 14 Hotels in San Ignacio
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We stayed at Cahal Peche for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Summary: The hotel is comfortable, the food delicious ,the staff superb and prices reasonable. It's a great base for exploring the region.

Details: Stay in a thatched roof cabana if you can. While furnishings are plain, the beds are comfortable and there is a separate bathroom. Our room had both a ceiling fan and A/C and flat-screen TV. Best of all there is a roomy screened-in patio with a hammock and a couple of deck chairs. It's wonderful to be surrounded by nature. While we had no problem with noise at night, a couple of friends in other cabanas were mildly annoyed by barking dogs and a crowing rooster.

The food in the restaurant is good. Breakfast is buffet style with eggs, potatoes, beans, fruit and other items. It's tasty, but if you get tired of the same lineup every day, you might try one of the restaurants down the hilll in San Ignacio for a change of pace. We would recommend Martha's and their banana pancakes for that. At Cahal Peche, the nachos appetizer is terrific and the dish featuring fish layered between fried plantains is a must try. From the bar, try their specialty drink -- a Belizian snow, which comprises white rum, triple sec, coconut cream, lime juice and lime zest.

You can relax at one of the three pools just off the bar/restaurant area and you can get pool towels at the front desk. You can book tours of ruins, cave tubing, etc.,right at the hotel desk. We went to the Xunantunich ruins with Kodi Ireland as our guide and we highly recommend him. He's very knowledgeable and friendly. The housekeeping staff visits every day. One little downside is that wireless internet is not available in the rooms. There are a couple of computers at the front desk for guest use and you can get on the net around the bar and restaurant area.

Be aware that the resort is at the top of a very steep partially paved road. While we walked into and out of town several times (and were greeted by nearly every person we passed), some people might find this physically challenging. Taxis are readily available at anywhere from $5 to $10 Belize (about half that amount in US dollars). The Cahal Peche ruins are literally within walking distance of the resort, only a short way down the hill. Be sure to visit the museum as well as the ruins.

I can't say enough about the resort staff. They are so friendly, helpful and hardworking and will make your vacation special.

Room Tip: Get a cabana.

My Dad, sister and I stayed in Blackman Eddy, one of the cabanas at the resort and enjoyed our stay immensely! The staff at the resort was so helpful in making activity schedules and booking our travel from/to Belize City and beyond! Beautiful resort, beautiful country and the staff even more so!

Great place to stay in San Ignacio. The staff are always accommodating and willing to help in any way they can. All their drivers were wonderful. We learned so much extra from them and they relay made the day trips extra special!

The food it top notch! Staff provided wonderful service and the food was always tasty. They even accommodated my pregnant need for plane old peanut butter and jam sandwiches! :)

The rooms were simple and well kept, not 5 star but how much time do you expect to stay in them. Walls are thin but any noise can easily be drowned out by the A/C Fan unit. Just remember to bring your own shampoo as it is not provided.

The hotel is located at the top of two steep hills. Walking down to the town center took 15-30 min and a cab ride was only about $4 US (well worth it!)

We had such a great time at Cahal Pech and it was the perfect place to start our tour of Belize!

Room Tip: Main Building rooms on the top floor provide a fantastic view of the surrounding area.

This is a good place to stay in San Ignacio, it is centrally located so that you can see many places and use this as your home base. We stayed four nights here. We were in the main building. My room was very clean.The bed was very comfortable. The food in the restaurant was very good. The staff was very friendly. There is a small store with souvenirs in the hotel. The prices are very reasonable.

This was our first trip/experience to the country of Belize. Our drive from the airport to San Ignacio was without an drama and when we arrived at Cahal Pech Resort we were greeting by Henry and Rafael. That greeting was to set the entire tone for our four day stay. The rooms were simple yet very clean and tidy and serviced every day with new linens and towels etc. We ate most of our dinners at the downstairs restaurant and the food was delightful. Our host from the bar ( Oscar ) was always attentive and prompt with our meals and drinks. Every one of the staff were so polite and nothing we asked was ever a problem. We will be back to spend some more days at CP. CP made our stay in Belize a wonderful experience and they represent their country very well.

Room Tip: All the rooms were clean and well serviced. The Honeymoon suite was really beautiful with amazing vi...

We stayed at Cahal Pech for 6 nights as our base for exploring the area. Excellent view of San Ignacio. Easy walk to Cahal Pech ruins and a nice walk to downtown San Ignacio. We developed a tour package to see Xunantunich, Barton Creek Cave, Butterfly farm and medicinal trail walk with CP personnel. Guides and drivers were excellent and very knowledgeable. Market day in San Ignacio was very interesting and worth a day of exploring. We stayed in a room with an excellent view of San Ignacio. Pool and restaurant area were very nice. A few improvements would make this an excellent stay. The biggest complaint we have is that there was no wardrobe to hang our clothes.

Great staff, interesting location, excellent 'can do' attitude and good bars and restaurant are positives. We did however stay in the cabanas and while worthwhile for the experience I can safely say I'm glad we only stayed two nights. In searching for descriptive words to describe our cabana we came up with rustic, elderly, slightly shabby and disappointing. I'm sure that at some time in the past these would've been very nice but two nights of discomfort were enough. We didn't see the hotel rooms but imagine they're the better option. If you ignore the accommodation, every other aspect of this hotel, especially the staff, is above average.
