Cahal Pech Village Resort Review
Once you make it up the steep hill, you'll enjoy the best views in Cayo at this hotel at the western edge of San Ignacio, near the Cahal Pech Mayan site. Local owners Daniel and Miriam Silva opened the hotel in 1994 and have been expanding and improving it ever since. The most-recent additions are new cottages and suites and a gorgeous two-level swimming pool, watched over by a giant statue of a pterodactyl. You have a choice here of thatch cabañas or rooms, all air-conditioned and with cable TV. Year-round rates start at about BZ$180 including tax and service, but the nicer cottages with screened porch are around BZ$270. The restaurant serves Belizean and American fare (such as grilled fish, pork chops, spaghetti, and steaks) in an open-air space with views of the town and valley below. You'll pay around BZ$24 for dinner, not including drinks, tax, or tip. Cahal Pech offers a variety of tours and multiday packages. This hotel is often heavily booked even off-season.
