I'm an archaeologist and I've stayed in many budget hotels around the world, including others in Belize (e.g., the Venus is San Ignacio is cheaper but clean and friendly), but this place was DISGUSTING. When I arrived, the clueless receptionist in the run-down lobby couldn't find my Hotels.com reservation (even though I could show him it on my phone). After about 45 frustrating minutes the owner took me to the smelly, disgusting room. The bathroom looked like it had never been cleaned (see pics). The air-conditioning was on but could not be adjusted below 30 degrees celsius which is HOT (85 F). The fridge was moldy and plugged into a dangerous-looking outlet with no cover. I didn't even try the TV because the bed did not look clean, and the outdoor hallways were strewn with garbage. I'm an experienced budget traveler, and thought I could handle any hotel but this was just unbelievable. I walked to the Mayan Princess and paid 3X the price but it was worth it to escape that hell hole. Run don't walk from this place.
