“Nice Spot right in downtown San Ignacio”
Reviewed 12 January 2011

We stayed here in a nice little cabin just behind the hotel. It was a cute little cabin and we had a nice stay for two nights :) I thought that the proprietor of the establishment was a friendly fellow, and we enjoyed the clean little cottage we had. Its a bit noisy, which should probably be expected in the middle of San Ignacio, but a nice place all in all. If I had to complain, I would say the bed wasn't too comfy, but I've come to expect this in the developing world.

Reviewed 12 July 2010

Stayed here two nights on our way to Tikal. Fell in love with San Ignacio and the Tropicool Hotel. The front desk is in the gift shop next to the hotel. Met owner and son, very nice family. Great with recommending places to eat and excursions. Right next door is Pacz Tours, a great tour company for Tikal and caving excursions. Room was a nice size, tile floors with a ceiling fan and a shared bathroom. Fresh towels and soap everyday. We could not believe how clean this hotel was! Fenced in backyard, with a small laundry area and an area to hang your wet clothes. We paid 30 BZ per night. Great little place to stay in the heart of town for a great price.

Reviewed 8 February 2007

Tropicool Hotel is located in downtown San Ignacio, right around the corner from the ex-Novotel Bus Station, and the office is at the gift shop next door. Manager may seem to be one very "uptight dude", but he does keep things quiet, clean, and secure.

Hotel occupies the ground floor of a concrete building, rooms very clean and cheap (BZ$23 single), two good communal bathrooms, although the lobby is rather spartan (i.e. 4 plastic chairs and a table). Small garden/grounds but no outdoor seating available, however, lots of lines and clothes pegs to hang laundry.

Eva's Restaurant is just 30 metres/yards down the street, if you want to socialize and meet lots of other travellers.
