Bugs and Mold

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 16, 2011

I spent the evening with an air condioning unit that went bang, bang bang..... all night. This was after changing from another room with the same A/C problem. If that isn't bad enough. They have a serious palmetto bug and german cockroach problem. If you stay in the cabanas, make sure you ask for one with a new roof. The thatch roof in mine was moldy and had many bugs crawling in it. If you have mold allergies, you will have a hard time if the bugs and poop don't scare you first. It used to be a nice place. I don't know why the don't fix the roofing and A/Cs. There is also gecko poop falling on you all night, but I don't mind geckos and beetles. No longer reccomend!

Unique Quality: great view

Directions: San ignacio, Cayo

A Pleasant Resort Hotel outside of San Ignacio

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 9, 2008

I stayed at this hotel for four nights while in the Cayo District. I found it to be very pleasant in most ways and after have a look a couple of the other establishments around the town of San Ignacio, I figured that it was the best hotel within 5km.
The hotel is divided into two sections, one being of a hotel type and the other being of individual cabanas where I stayed. These were pretty good if not exactly up my standards for decor. The hotel and restaurant staff here was very friendly and helpful.

Unique Quality: The hotel has a pretty good restaurant with huge burgers and decent local cuisine. The bar is attached to the restaurant and offers the usual drinks and draft for a good price. Tours of the region and for activities can be arranged at the hotel desk.

Directions: 2km outside of the town centre of San Ignacio. Just 5 minutes from the actual Cahal Pech Mayan ruin.

We stayed in both the cabañas and in the hotel rooms at Cahal Pech. The cabañas with the screened in porches are great, and offer views of San Ignacio that can't be beat. The hotel rooms have a/c. Enough said. The decor is tasteful though, and the food is tasty. There is a small pool (what's with the wierd terradactyl) next to an all day bar that has plenty of water. (Definitly buy bottled water.) The staff is friendly and accommodating.

Unique Quality: The Maya site of Cahal Pech is only a few steps away.

Cahal Pech is a resort/hotel/village with a large hotel, restaurant, pool, and cabana/cabins on a hill overlooking San Ignacio. It's just beautiful and the view is spectacular, especially at night. You can see the whole city laid out before you and the mountains in the background. The service is good and the staff is just great and friendly and helpful. They can arrange everything for you such as tours if you just ask. We didn't get a chance to use the pool because we were off on tours a lot but it's a great pool. The restaurant is outdoors and beautiful also. The whole place is great and I'd stay there again in a minute. There are two drawbacks - at night there is a lot of dog barking and rooster crowing because the sound carries very well up from the city. The other one is that it's at the top of a very steep drive that you need a 4WD to get up. You can walk but we didn't even try walking up.

Unique Quality: The view is fantastic. The pool is beautiful. The chef is German but his food is great. The staff is wonderful and very friendly and helpful. The ambiance in general is relaxed and calm and just nice. All the cabanas have small porches with a chair and a hammock and thatched roofs. The cabanas are smallish in size, but have a separate bathroom, a table and chair, a place to hang clothes, and nice Mayan inspired things in them like a wall hanging and a mask on the wall. The showers were nice and large. The rooms have fans and a TV with cable, not that you'll watch a lot of it.

There is also a smaller ruin site called Cahal Pech with a little museum near the hotel, about a block away. It's a nice smaller ruin site. There is a small admission but it's worth it.

Directions: Go to the new ice cream place, then turn right and go up the major hill you see, which is a dirt road. At the top is the ruins; keep going to the right and there is the resort. Better yet, ask someone for directions.
