Rumors Resort Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I visited San Ignacio in June and stayed 5 nights at Rumors. The hotel staff and management are very friendly and helpful and l look forward to staying there again if I return. My room was very comfortable and clean and I enjoyed the restaurant and pool bar. The hotel is located a short distance from the center of town, getting back and forth was no problem via the cabs which service the area. The hotel staff coordinated my day tours which helped my enjoy my time in the area - I definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

We loved staying at Rumors for the first half of our honeymoon in July 2016. They were wonderfully helpful with coordinating the day trip excursions that we wanted to do, had great service, and overall it was very peaceful. The pool was a great feature after a long, hot day of exploring.

Rumors has a fantastic staff. Everyone is smiling, accommodating and helpful. The pool area has a beautiful view of the hills and rainforest. The food menu is selective but the food was good. Except for the salad, not so much. Drinks were super. If you go, read the folder on the table to find out the freebies.

Booking with this resort was easy, but that's where it stopped. Our room was above the kitchen and we were awakened at 6am by loud music coming from below. After complaining we were moved to a different room, where we were met with very loud neighbors, despite clear signs to be quiet in the small courtyard. Our meals in the restaurant were overall very disappointing; a couple were inedible. Food by the pool was more palatable, maybe because it was a simpler menu and less to mess up. Drinks were inconsistent. Overall staff was helpful and friendly, but my friend left behind some clothing in the room when we checked out. We called the front desk and were assured that the clothing would be mailed to her promptly, but it has been many months and it has not arrived. We can only assume that the staff did not follow through. I'd recommend a different place to stay, as San Ignacio has many options.

First of all, the grounds are beautiful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. There is a lovely pool that is kept extremely clean. The staff was wonderful. I can't say enough good things about them. Julie at the front desk helped us with our directions as we drove in unfamiliar territory and was delightful. All the staff down to housekeeping were excellent. Elies made the best pina colada that we had during our travels around the country and Edwin makes a mean long island iced tea. Their willingness to converse, serve and share information made for an enjoyable stay. The resort is a short taxi ride or drive into San Ignacio if you want to expand your culinary and cultural experience. The resort uses Maya Adventures for touring and there is no doubt that we got two of the best guides for Zip-lining/Cave tubing and Tikal in the country. O'Neal and Wilber (sp). We just went early June 2017 and the pricing was a good value. All involved made our stay very enjoyable.

We had a group of middle school students traveling to Belize. The rooms were pretty big and had different number of beds and types of beds. Small hotel that is family run. Food was excellent. Small dining room area with outside seating. The pool was quite large and clean. Use bug spray! Wifi only really works in the dining area, but it is free. Beautiful grounds.

These guys know how to welcome guests! We showed up without a booking, and we had a room and a welcome drink on the house in the pool within 5 minutes! The rooms and views are great, the AC is the best I've had in Belize, and the staff are super friendly and relaxed. They even did some laundry for us and let us leave our vehicle on site after we checked out so we could do our day tour. Fantastic spot that also gives back to the community, they are an understated and spectacular spot!

We were immediately greeted by the reception staff upon arrival and were informed that our room had been upgraded. The room was clean and in a quiet area away from the normal foot traffic of the resort. Within 15 minutes of getting settled, we received complimentary drinks delivered to our room which was a very nice surprise! We took advantage of the restaurant several times throughout our stay and it did not disappoint. Each meal was absolutely delicious. We booked a couple of tours from here with Go Maya and the attention we received was top notch. They packed delicious lunches each day and the guides were outstanding. We would recommend Rumors Resort to anyone who is visiting the area.

I had a little trouble when I first reserved with Rumors that might have been a misunderstanding over room type. However, we ended up with what we needed. Rumors is a cute little resort a few miles out of town. You will need to take a taxi to get to town, but it's only about $4-8 depending on the time of day. The beds were very comfortable, it was clean, had AC, and our room had an outdoor patio. The pool area was beautiful. The rooms facing the highway don't have a great view, but everything on the other side of the building is very pretty and we didn't spend that much time in the room looking out the window. :) We really enjoyed all of the staff including Israel, who dropped us off at the airport. He even gave us time on the way to the airport to check out the Saturday market. The food was very good and the food/drink staff were awesome. The front desk staff were helpful and knowledgeable. Overall, we really liked it.

They have an infinity pool and the staff at the hotel is wonderful! The restaurant has good food for a reasonable price. Separate shower and bathroom. Nice breakfast. Safe and television in the room. Nice deck to sit out and enjoy the breeze. We were placed in the front of the building and concerned about noise but it didn't prove to be a problem.
