Midas Resort is located near the Town of San Ignacio which is only a 7 minute walk from the town center, on a 7 acre Rainforest setting with private access to the Macal river, a perfect place for enjoying nature, also known as a resting destination for most birds such as the Keel Billed Toucan. The 7 acre property has been in the Preston family for 3 Generations.
Firstly, it was used by the Grandfather Daniel Silva Farias, as a temporarily farm.
It was then passed on to his daughter Maria Preston in 1991, who built her house and 6 cabanas and called the Resort MIDAS which is a combination name of her ,first son Michael and her father.
The resort now has 2 Cottages, 2 Family Cottages, 2 King Cabanas, 8 Standard Cabanas, 12 Deluxe, and 1 Casita Verde.

Don't miss out on this wonderful Tropical Resort that San Ignacio has to offer.

Really Nice Place to Stay

Midas Touch is a very pretty place with cute little bungalows to stay in. Beautiful gardens, great pool in front of the bar and an excellent staff. My bungalow was very comfortable Downsides, the kitchen is great for breakfast, ok for lunch but dinner is disappointing. There are no face clothes, drinking glasses, refrigerators or ice buckets in the rooms,If you ask at the kitchen they'll be glad to give you a glass with ice. Wi-fi is iffy in the rain and I could not connect from my bed but I could in the front of the room. It is a short walk to town.

Great time and very caring and helpful staff on hand to pamper to one's needs. First time to Belize and an issue came up. The manager and her staff were the most accommodating and helpful people, offer and provided assistance until I finally was able to resolve the issue at hand..... Hotel was nice..........room was clean and comfortable which allowed me to enjoy the natural beauty that surround it.....One of the finest hotel and staff

Midas was nice place to stay. From the outside it looks a little run down but the rooms are very nice. We really liked the pool bar and hung out there every evening.

Pool party!

We arrived at the Midas Reset to the pounding music of a pool party :( What had we gotten ourselves into?!? But the lady at the front desk explained that it would end at 10:30 . So we walked into town and had a delicious dinner. When we got back, the party was winding down and true to their word, it was quiet after that. This was on a Saturday night and the next two nights were quiet with only the cleaning of frogs at night and the calls of birds during the day. Very walkable to the city center. A peaceful place to relax and a base for seeing the archaeological sites of the area.

Martha's for great FOOD and ambiance. French bakery for croissants. Across from the Venus hotel is a restaurant with happy hour specials.

Lost my Reservation

Somewhere between agency and the Resort my prepaid reservation was lost, so we showed up and Midas had no record of us. Fortunately, I guess, I had printed out my receipt from agency. The staff was very nice and luckily they had rooms for us, although not the ones we paid for and we had to pack our stuff every night to move room to room. They said they would contact agency and get us a partial refund, but that has not happened yet. Can't figure out how to email agency, so will have to call them, I guess. Given than San Ignacio is an outpost in Belize, the resort was fun, but don't expect the Ritz. The staff were very nice and organized some great tours for us. Pool was murky and uninviting, hot tub was not connected. Excellent fry jacks for breakfast. Try to get into main building, if you want American Style room, although bathrooms still small. Some of "cabanas" are rustic. Hotel is in partial state of renovation.

Midas Resort

This resort is going through some upgrades that will make it one of the finest in the area. Having a resort like this in a relatively new country that is in the tropics gives one the chance to have most of the things we are accustomed to but also to see and mingle with the people who are native to this country. It is close to the downtown area, within a few minutes walk and staff was eager to assist us in finding activities, tours and transportation. Although it is 72 miles from the airport all necessary arrangements were made to assure we arrived and could get back to the airport on time.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The hotel only served breakfast since it was the off season, but it was so much food that we did not need to eat until dinner.

It'sa bed & toilet

Don't know if we just happened to get the only unit that hasn't been upgraded, but this was a $30 rustic Montana cabin at best. Staff was very friendly tho, and we only slept there.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If you're thinking about driving into Guatemala, study up on it first. It's quite confusing and you have to pay for a number of things. Two people with vehicle around $70. Plan on averaging about 30 miles in an hour due to unpaved sections and frequent speed bumps
