Rumors Resort Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rumors was a lovely hotel right outside the central part of San Ignacio. The pool area was fantastic (two pools, a bar, lots of seating - all overlooking the forest) and I cannot speak highly enough about the staff - very nice and helpful! The rooms were clean and had AC. Also, we really liked how we could charge everything to the room (meals and drinks) and then just pay for everything at the end. The food was also good! The only problem we experienced was that two of us (out of 11) developed a rash on our faces and necks that we believe came from the pillows (probably our skin just didn't like the detergent or something) - so if you have sensitive skin just make sure to wrap your pillow in a t-shirt and you should be fine. They also will book day trips for you. There really isn't a place that is so nice and so inexpensive!

Rumors was better than expected. Room was big, clean, and comfortable for 3 people. There's a microwave and fridge in room, very convenient. Unbelievably nice staff. We came home with a whole pineapple once and they offered to cut it up for us. Highly recommend if you're on a budget.

Where do I start? From the pre-arranged ride with Israel to Rosy meeting us at the door when we arrived I felt this would be a good stay. The entire staff, from Daisy and Judy at the front desk; to Josh, Melvin, Izri and Elias in the dining room and at the bar, we were treated wonderfully. Only a five minute drive to town in a $5 (American) cab and 15 minutes from Xunantanich ruin. We had clean rooms, friendly staff that took care of every need and a beautiful pool to relax by. We booked our tours to the ruins and Barton Creek cave right through the hotel and were lucky enough to have the same wonderful tour guide both times. I would stay here again if we were to travel to this region of Belize in the future. When we said our goodbyes to the staff we felt as if we were leaving old friends. If you want a resort that's not busy and just want to relax, this is the place for you. If you just want to disconnect for a few days, this is the place for you. Come on down and relax with one of Melvin's frozen drinks and appreciate nature a bit.

This is a very pleasant, Belizean-run establishment just outside of San Ignacio. It is a little dated and not luxurious, but it has everything you need for a pleasant stay: comfortable rooms, an attentive staff, and above all a glorious infinity pool. And it is very good value for money. About the only improvement that should be made forthwith is adding bath mat strips to prevent slipping on the marble area of the pool where the lounge chairs are. This area is very slippery and we slipped ourselves and witnessed several people do likewise. Also, cushions for the chaise-lounges around the pool, and at least for,some of the chairs would enhance an already superb asset.

My friend and I just returned, stayed at Rumors for 3 nights. We both had a wonderful time. Very clean, quite, has a nice pool and bar. Most importantly their staff (Daisy, Josh, and Itzri) took real good care of their guests. When we asked for an ointment to treat a wound my friend sustained while on a hike Ms Daisy went out of her way to look for one. The food is very good and the service is really topnotch. It is out of the way a short taxi ride from San Ignacio but is probably better that way as San Ignacio is quite crowded. We booked tours to Tikal and ATM with them and these tours went well, no problems as well. Very pleased. From the bottom of my heart I thank Ms Daisy and Ms Itzri (I hope I spelled her name correctly) and to Josh. Your managers should be very proud of you all.

Clean, safe, and comfortable! Rumors Resort was a great place to stay, located close to many Mayan ruins. The staff was incredibly kind and friendly. We loved Daisy; she is very sweet, warm, and accommodating. The day trips offered at the hotel are well worth it, and the staff makes it very easy to arrange and pay seamlessly.

We had to stay at this hotel for a quick overnight stay since the Airbnb we had booked was not in a good location. Lucky for us they had one room left. the room was right above the kitchen and we had our own little deck over looking the garden and pool. Nice clean room with clean sheets. The restaurant was good and had dinner and breakfast the next morning. Daisy at the front desk was very helpful in giving us directions for us and also letting me use her phone.

Enjoyed staying there, the front desk receptionist was very helpful! Comfortable, and quiet...No phones inside the rooms, but not a problem we used our cell phones. Sometimes wi-fi disconnected, but it's free. They gave my friend a free room when they didn't get a chance to set up an extra cot bed. Super nice staff!

We have stayed at rumors resort during our vacation to Belize in February 2007. The resort is extremely nice. They have clean, comfortable rooms with lockers,, good restaurant. The service was awesome!!! Rosie and daisy were great, all the other staff members were nice. The place is very convenient and couple miles away from center of town, very safe, gorgeous landscaper and lot of people come and stay for their honey moon vacations, The resort provide great tours through maya trVels. We have called and booked tours from USA and they did not even ask us to provide credit card to confirm our trips. We have booked the resort through hotels.com, however you can book them directly. Will go back again if we decide to go to Belize.

Lovely place to stay, Rosy at the front desk was awesome, booked all our trips, cabs, you name it she delivered. Josh at the diner very nice. Both made us feel so special. Would definetly go back in a hearbeat.
