- Very cheap place. I had a single room with windows towards the hallway ($15/night). Super uncomfortable bed. Really, I could feel every spring. Slight smell of mould but not too bad. Walls are thin but people were quiet and went to bed early so that was no big problem. No reception. Wifi only worked in one spot in the...

Sooooo glad we found this place and went with our gut instinct. It's cheap accommodations, perfectly located, quite, cute and the management are just sweet hearts. If you're looking for luxury and want to be waited on then go somewhere else for sure. But we are backpackers that prefer to blow our cash on the sights and food. We usually...

Great location, great price, very clean. The staff is very helpful and provides great recommendations. We asked about Tikal and ATM and they were very helpful with both. The location is right on the main road with all of the tour companies right around.

The Tropicool Hotel is an inexpensive option that's right downtown. We put a visiting professor there when he'd realized he was going to stay an extra night. It was secure, and close to downtown. It was nice that they were able to help us out last minute. Had a little garden area on site that added some nice green to...

We stayed in one of the cabanas with our own bathroom. Room and bathroom were very clean. Place is quiet and right in the middle of the heart of town. Owner is nice and super laid back. Bed is a wee bit uncomfortable, but not unbearable. Overall, we really enjoyed the stay. Would recommend staying here.

I have traveled to San Ingnacio several times and stayed on Burns ave before. The Tropicool is at the center of the action. I have stayed at other spots in San Ingnacio. For the economy traveler who likes to be near the action this is the spot to stay. Andrew[Walley] and Doris who I have met over the years will...

If you're looking for a clean, well located, reasonably priced place to stay then this is a good bet. It's not overly fancy or atmospheric but it is practical and we enjoyed staying there. We stayed in cabana 1 in the garden which had a screened veranda area which was nice for sitting outside. The room had a double bed...

Don't look any further, this is place is the best for the buck. its clean, its not fancy, its in downtown so you can walk everywhere. the bus terminal is five minute walk. restaurants, internet café, right behind the Re/Max Belize Property Center office. The owners are a wealth of knowledge.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tropicool Hotel has an away feeling even though it is only one block from the center of town. The property, which stretches between Burns Avenue and West Street, is dotted with flowering plants and fruit trees: guava, banana, plantain, lime, custard apple and more -- which add shade and coolness to the place. There are rooms with shared bathrooms, outside there are three individual cabins with private bath and cable TV, offering a little more privacy. Everything is meticulously clean from the outdoor sitting area to the bathrooms. This family-run hotel is well-established and includes a nicely stocked gift shop. Inside the hotel there is a bulletin board with helpful information on tours and activities in the area. ... more   less
