We took an air conditioned room for a good nights sleep after sweltering onboard the sailboat we delivered from Key West. The A/C worked great but the second bed was a tiny little fold out job. Have a look at the room before you lay out the cash. Nice big balcony in the common area and a big dining area. Free coffee and tea in the morning. Breakfast is a bit pricey but convenient. Helpful staff and internet available.
The Hotel Mopan is nothing fancy, but it was clean and safe. The guy at the front desk wasn't exactly Mr. Happy, though. Some rooms have air conditioners - ours did, but we didn't need it. It looks a little rundown, but that's better than most of the buildings in Belize City, and I think you have to expect that in the third world, unless you want to stay in a fortress-like big place that walls you off from the local culture.
They have a small bar, and chairs out on the big front porch, where you can enjoy the breeze, watch the waves break over the seawall a block away, and watch the occasional local bicycling by. The only small problem we had with our room was that the shower curtain fell down a couple times.
My one big complaint - their website advertised a restaurant, and they don't have one. Never did, is what the front desk told me. They do serve breakfast in their breakfast room, but that's it, and it's not included in the price of the room.
Unique Quality: There's a computer in the lobby you can use for internet and e-mail access for a small price.
Directions: in the Southern Foreshore neighborhood, maybe 1/2 mile from the Swing Bridge.
