El Rey Hotel
Ranked #6 of 17 Belmopan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 April 2017

We chose this hotel so we had a launch and landing for an inland tour. Super friendly staff. Nick, the owner was great, as well as the night time desk receptionist. Both owner and front desk staff were very helpful with other areas of Belize and transportation. Clean rooms with private bathrooms were just fine! Great affordable place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms further back are quieter.

Thank you very much. My wife and I try hard to provide clean affordable spaces for a short or prolonged stay in the City. You hit the nail on the head with your comment about Belmopan being a great base for exploring West, South or East with much to do near Belmopan. Thank you for your comments, it was a pleasure to meet you and we do appreciate your business very much. Trust you had a fabulous continuation of your Belize vacation to the coast.

Had a wonderful stay with my family.
The room had its charm.
It's warm and welcoming hospitality.
The staff from we entered came out to assist with our bags.
In my daughters words a quaint and beautiful hotel.
My favorite was having the option of choosing your coffee of the day depending on what region of the world you felt that morning.
For a different stay and not just a basic, same room.
This is your stay.
Thanks El Rey Hotel.

Thank you for your comments, we were thrilled to have been able to host you. As I travel around the world and as friends come to visit, there is always a bag of new and exciting coffee in the plan! Glad you enjoyed our big and varied selection, it remains one of our very unique little guest attractions. Thanks for your positive remarks.

This place clean, convenient and the staff is friendly and helpful, however, unless you are used to dogs barking all day and night, you won't get any sleep here. We booked for 5 nights, the first night was fine, but the next 2 I could not sleep at all, the dogs barked literally for 5 minutes at a time every 5 minutes. We left and spent our next 2 nights somewhere else.

We sincerely apologize for the dogs those two nights, though we are powerless to intervene. Sadly, there is no pound in Belize and stray dogs go from neighbourhood to neighbourhood until the City council does a round up, a few times a year, which always wrenches at our hearts as animal lovers. We notice that some of our guests are more sensitive than others to external noises, many times i mention it on the odd night that they do cause a stir and i sometimes get the reaction "what dogs?" - truly sorry this cut short your stay with us and hope that you enjoyed the rest of your trip in Belize.

Stayed here with 3 other girls for our medical placement in the local hospital. Really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. The host was friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The nightly rate was slightly more than some other places in Belmopan if traveling on a budget but reflected the quality of the service. The food here is really great and is also very reasonably priced. Ate breakfast here every morning and some lunches/dinners. Would recommend staying here.

Many thanks for your kind remarks and we were happy you chose to stay with us. Great news - we introduced a new category of room "Economy rooms" which now mean we have the lowest priced AC rooms in the city. We opened up 4 rooms with this category and they are snapped up very quickly most nights, so we know that people appreciate this development. Hope we will have the chance to welcome you again to Belmopan.

The El Ray is a warm and welcoming place. The rooms are all different, the beds are very comfortable, the rooms are clean and well maintained. The restaurant is small but serves really delicious local breakfast with an amazing coffee selection. The staff are incredible and Dahlias cheesecake is some of the best I have ever had.
