Rainforest Haven Inn is a real gem in San Ignacio! Shameera, Naseer, and Dorita are wonderful hosts, and the property is clean, well-kept, and offers a stunning view in all directions of the town of San Ignacio. My husband and I stayed in the cabaña across the street, which we found met all our basic needs plus had the added...

So.. if staying in a clean, large AC room, with a shared kitchen, and rooftop vista for $65 a night for two... is not enough.... add the nicest, most helpful, accommodating hosts and Wow... Thank YOU! This is not the Ritz... or close to it... It is so clean, nice, in the right location, easy walk to town and sites.....

The hotel is older but comfy with big rooms, AC, a lovely rooftop vista of town along with chilling out rooftop hammocks. The reception is great:a cool rum punch drinks and warm refreshing handlers to clean away tiredness. For families or any traveler on a budget, the hotel also provides a complete kitchen where you can store your food and...

We truly appreciate the time you took to share about your experience while at the Rainforest Haven Inn. The building was previously a home that was converted to an Inn. The advantage is that our rooms are larger compare to other rooms in town. The communal kitchen also helps guest to prepare easy to make food or fruits since we...

Pros: The location is very convenient and the rate is reasonable. The wifi is good. I especially want to mention about the customer service here as the owner is very friendly and helpful. He can recommend you the tour or restaurant that you may be interested. Con: None.

The owners (George and Sharmera) are very gracious and welcoming along with the other front desk staff. They were eager to provide input, assist us in all the tour bookings, shuttle services.

The whole experience with the owners and staff at Rainhaven was top notch. Right from the check-in process where we were served a refreshing frozen fruit drink and given a mint-infused cold towel to freshen up with, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which was very clean and comfortable. The staff and...

There were only five rooms in this hotel and our room was huge. The bathroom was also spacious. We were given the use of a full communal kitchen if we wanted to use it, but we're also given excellent restaurant recommendations. It reminded me of an old European hotel. There was a Terrace up on the roof with comfortable seating...

We stayed at the Rainforest Haven Inn for six nights and were very pleased with the helpfulness of the staff, its location making everything in San Ignacio and the surrounding tours so accessible, and the additional amenities (e.g. shared kitchen). They were always there to answer our questions and make recommendations.

The owners of the inn are friendly and helpful. The tours they set us up on were amazing--the best we had in Belize. The room was large and clean, and the location (just up the hill from the central part of San Ignacio, just 10 minutes from Cahal Peche) can't be beat.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unlike a new hotel with standardized rooms, the Rainforest Haven Inn in San Ignacio, Belize is an antique structure with varying room configurations. It was built as a private home and the three storage building with only seven-bedrooms has a more rustic feel. Each room is unique but aiming to make you feel at home. Rooms are equipped with air conditioned, cable TV, hot and cold bath and free WiFi. What makes us unique is that we are the only accommodation in the downtown area that offers a roof deck pool. Our guests have access to a full kitchen on the third floor which is perfect to make a quick meal, warm your food or make some coffee. We also feature a terrace that has a 360 degrees view of San Ignacio and is a lovely place to have your coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. There is also a beauty shop on the ground floor. The Rainforest Haven Inn also features daily room services for free, car rental services, and laundry services for a fee. We are about a 3-5 minute walk to restaurants, grocery shops, banks, tour agencies, bus terminal etc. Everything is very close without feeling like you are in the thick of it. Our attitude is to treat everyone as an individual and provide them with friendly and respectful service. We are passionate about making you feel at home. ... more   less
