The hotel was in a great location, which allowed us to explore the area very easily. It sits above the downtown area of San Ignacio, but it is still within walking distance. If you don't feel like walking, then taxis are cheap. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and the facilities are very comfortable with a great pool and outdoor dining area. The hotel was under construction, which definitely took away from the ambiance. We didn't loud experience any early morning construction, but the hotel wasn't looking its best.
Great location-right outside the city so easy access, but away from noise. Staff was very friendly and pool was beautiful. Not very impressed with the restaurant set-up. We went during the off season so this may be why it was slow and seemed unprepared. **If you are purchasing through Kayak and notice the Economy standard room-this is a SPARE ROOM. The spare room appeared clean, but we would share a bathroom with the room next door and bathroom/shower was across the hall. The bathroom was brand new and appeared clean, but we did not want to split with others. Also, this area was under loud construction during our visit in Dec 2015. We ended up upgrading to a cabana which was very nice.
Comfortable pool, great bar and bartender, and cute/comfortable little cabins with beautiful grounds. We stayed here the night before heading up to Tikal and had a great time. The staff were very accommodating and we have no complaints.
Love the location, amenities and staff. This is our second stay and I'm sure we'll be back. All of the Midas' staff is very conscientious but don't push you. Got help when we asked but were able to enjoy our vacation without pressure. Per the locals the temps were exceptionally hot this time so the bartender was willing to turn one of the TVs facing the pool to the NHL playoffs for my husband and son so they could watch the game from the pool. :-) Made their night, maybe the trip. We love the location is close to town, just past the park so we don't hear the town noises at night. Close enough if we want to stay out late, but far enough we were easily able to get away from it when we wanted to and walked everywhere. Oh and BWT bugs love me but it's never been a problem at Midas. That said, we went to dinner at a high end resort just out of town this time and I got eaten alive. Glad we were staying at Midas and not the other PS thought they had some of the best fry jacks in town. Enjoyed the pool and it's surroundings, but for the number of people staying there at the time, it seemed loud kind of late at night.
The cabana was awesome. Nice pool. Great location. Nice little restaurant and poolside bar. Front desk staff was not informative on extra charges. I was charged 15.00 per guest to spend time with us at the pool. That is ridiculous!! I booked the resort based on being able to meet with family and friends and enjoy the facilities at the resort. Didn't expect to be charged daily for that. We did spend money at the poolside bar for food and drinks. It's ashamed to be charged more then a room night to use the facilities. The WiFi is terrible unless you are by the pool or the deluxe rooms above the pool. I had no cellular service so I was dependent on WiFi to check email and communicate back to family in the US. I asked for a room closer to the pool to get reception and I was told that I could pay extra for a deluxe room above the pool. Not!!
Location was good Staff very unhelpful unfriendly
good location, quiet Lots of little flaws, luke warm hot water, lights out, cracked mirror, missing screen. but overall ok place.
The cabana was awesome, as well as the staff. Beautiful pool with poolside bar. Centrally located in the heart of San Ignacio. No telephones in the rooms. No ice machines at the resort. Also no little mini refrigerators or microwaves in rooms. Also charge to bring a guest to the resort to use the pool even when accompanied by a paying guest
Ac was great, nice cafe on the premises, very near town, markets and other good restaurants,very clean. Friendly staff
Good location that is slightly removed from the town but still close enough to walk to. Took the bus from Belize City that drops off in front of the tourism office and Midas was just close enough to comfortably walk to even with luggage. The restaurant had good food for breakfast but only tried the dinner on the first day when I was too tired to go into town to eat. A trail of ants coming out of one of the light switches and a leaky toilet. Also the wifi is only in the common areas (restaurant, bar, and the yard) but I was able to get a working signal by sitting on the balcony.
The tours we booked through the resort were worry free. I had heard from some postings of challenges traveling to Tikal in Guatemala. We simply booked our tour ahead and brought our passports. They took care of everything. We had a great guide, rode in an air conditioned shuttle on both sides of the border and the guide was with us the entire time. On the way back we even had a late lunch in Guatemala where we could pick up some souvenirs. You MUST do this trip. Being only 2 hours from these ruins makes this a must see. Only $135 US PP was also a very fair price. Try breakfast at Pops as well. It's .. right behind the big yellow building in town. It has a very nice pool which we used after a long day of excursions in the heat. Breakfast was good at the resort but less of a value then in town. Cabanas are great for 2 but kind of tight with 3. No drinking water in the room. Water was only available at the bar.
Location and rooms are great No ice for in room or efficiencies
Delmi is the sole reason this resort runs well. Rooms were cute & comfortable. Location perfect. We never had to worry about sightseeing trips . She arranged everything with great guides. Talk about a jewel in the jungle! Our room was not as advertised. Delmi made things right by upgrading to a lovely room.
We spent three nights at Gaia in Feb 2013 as part of our honeymoon. It was wonderful. There is a long bumpy (I mean really bumpy) road to get to Gaia, but it is well worth it. You are also staying relatively close to Caracol which is spectacular. Gaia offered a combination tour of Caracol with stops at Rio on Pools and Rio Frio Caves. Our local Mayan tour guide was laid back, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The waterfalls can be seen and heard from the dining room. They are fairly large and have a sandy-bottomed pool to play in. The cabanas are beautiful and the resort kinda feels like you are staying at Rivendale.
