Fodor's Review

With clean rooms, a good restaurant, handy laundry, and convenient tours, Martha's provides just about everything you need right in the heart of downtown San Ignacio. The regular rooms, some with shared bath, have white walls and polished wood floors, but for a little more you can get a larger room with cable TV, refrigerator, and balcony. The First Lady Suite (BZ$190 plus 9% hotel tax) might be worth the climb up to the fourth floor, as it's large enough for a family, has a kitchenette, and a huge veranda with views of the hills. An annex called the Inn at Martha's about a block away adds six rooms. The original location can be noisy, due to traffic and barking dogs; the annex is quieter. Martha's Restaurant, with local art on the walls and a sweet garden patio, is open every day, serving pizza, sirloin steak, and local dishes such as chaya tamales (chaya is a type of spinach-like greens grown around Cayo). However, rates do not include meals—if you want breakfast, it's an extra BZ$15 per person. The laudromat will do your laundry for BZ$14 a load.
