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.

This is the perfect location for staying in downtown San Ignacio within walking distance to everything. The rooms are spacious and the price is unbelievable. The staff is always smiling and the rooftop terrace is a great place to relax in the evening to enjoy a Belikin and the sounds of the town. We even heard singing coming from a...

Great little hotel in the middle of San Ignacio. Clean large rooms. Great airconditioning. Comfy beds. Provided safe parking for our car. Walking distance to restaurants. Fabulous shared large kitchen and rooftop terrace. Good access to caves, Caracol, Tikal, Xunantunich and Cahal Pech. We were 2 couples with a car. Stayed in 2 rooms.

(+) The greatest advantage of Rainforest Haven Inn is the wonderful chilling area on the roof equipped with a few hammocks. It is nice to come to the roof and drink a few beers in the evening. The guys can arrange tours and activities to Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) cave with Mayan artifacts and sacrificial remains or to Tikal Guatemala's...

This was the perfect hotel for us in San Ignacio. The air conditioning worked perfectly, as did the wifi (in our room!), and we needed both. The hotel, which has the look and ambiance of a Spanish Colonial building, is a couple of blocks uphill from the downtown area on a quiet one-way street. The hotel doesn't provide meals, but...

This is not the fanciest lodging in San Ignacio, but if you need a clean room, with comfortable beds, in a good location, this is the place for you.

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
