“Nice Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2013

San Ignacio is very authentic Belize. We stayed here at the Guesthouse in the "first lady" Suite. It was very large, top of the building, great views. Huge balcony w hammocks, city views, chairs. Large room with a couch, two queens, fridge, bathroom. No AC in that room though, so beware if u cant hack it. Two large stand up fans and I believe over head fan, but not positive about that one. It was comfortable enough, but hot still. All of the other rooms have AC, but we wanted to max and relax up on the top and enjoyed it very much. Cute stairwell with beautiful vines in the windows. Lovely people.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Guesthouse is located about 3 blocks from bus stop and 1 block from the main street restaurants, bars, shops, and tour offices. Room was large and very clean with nice size bathroom. King-size bed, a/c and fan, wifi in room. The staff was helpful in scheduling tours, helping us get a taxi to the border, and allowing us to store our luggage for 2 days while we visited Tikal and El Remate in Guatemala. A comfortable place and convenient as a base for seeing many sights in Belize.

We stayed in a junior suite on the second floor. It was a very large room, actually it used to be two rooms, with an outside deck. Thee was a good sized bathroom, an eating area, a fridge and coffee maker. The room had A.C. and a fan, although with the weather we had, they were never used. We had a queen sized bed as well as places to put our luggage. The place was clean, except the bathroom floor which could have used a good scrub.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. They have a very good restuarant which serves a good breakfast as well a great pizza. We would have stayed in San Ignacio and this hotel longer, but it rained so much that all the jungle tours were cancelled, so left after two days.
I would reccomend this hotel to others.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights upon first arriving in Belize. The place was meticulously clean. This place is a unique house perfectly located 1 block from the main road in San Ignacio. We could walk to many stores, restaurants, and tour offices. The staff was helpful in recommending places to eat and book tours from. But the best part for me was the cleanliness of the place. The room was perfect. Big, bright and clean. I even saw the cleaning lady wiping down the benches outside daily. I would highly recommend Martha's Guesthouse.

We had an excellent 5 night stay at this friendly and helpful place. Rooms very tidy and clean, excellent value. Reliable tours booked here, all were great. Cave tubing, Tikal and Caracol. Tours had no surprise extra costs. Some noise from street but nothing too late in the evening. Great people.

Room Tip: Room with balcony a bonus if you can get one.

The rooms are spacious and clean. Hugo is very helpful and friendly-happy to answer any question. He helped us to feel right at home when we first arrived. This guesthouse is located within walking distance of Kahal Pech, restaurants, the post office and shops.
We could hear some street noise at night in our room on the third floor. The restaurant serves wonderful breakfasts!

The room was just fine...a little less than I expected but a decent place to rest ones head. The pillows Were a little worn out and the lights were the prison-issue ice-blue LED's...but it doesn't break the bank and the staff was very friendly. I would definitely come back, but now I know what to expect: an economy room at an economy price. ..they just have a great photographer!!! You will do just fine by Martha's if you give them a try.
