Fodor's Expert Review Aguada Hotel & Restaurant
La Loma Luz area, off George Price Hwy. across from La Loma Luz hospital, Santa Elena, Cayo, Belize
Frugal travelers jump at the opportunity to stay in this tidy, attractive, and inexpensive hotel with air-conditioned rooms and saltwater swimming pool in Santa Elena, the low-key town adjoining San Ignacio. Aguada became so popular that the owners, a Belizean-American couple, added more rooms overlooking and behind the pool. The original budget rooms have air-conditioning but no televisions. Deluxe rooms with air-conditioning, cable TV, and mini-refrigerators cost more but are still a relative bargain. There's an indoor restaurant and an open-air thatched palapa bar with Belizean dishes and American standards like burgers.
- clean, inexpensive rooms with a/c
- one of the few budget hotels with a pool
- a bus or short taxi ride away from downtown San Ignacio
- traffic near the hotel may increase when the new San Ignacio bridge opens
