I have not stayed in the hotel, but have had lunch here twice. There is a large palapa and a cool tile floor in the outdoor seating area. The landscaping is gorgeous with a pond that sports water lilies, turtles and frogs. Large iguanas wander the grounds and cute little geckos scurry about. I regularly see herons and kingfishers at...

We stayed here for 3 nights in January. We booked a room for 4 people. This consisted of 3 double beds in adjoining rooms, which is no big deal since we are a family. However, the adjoining room was like a strange neglected dorm room from the 70s. It did not have it's own bathroom or tv. The beds were...

We've been visiting Belize for many years for an annual vacation. We stayed at the Aguada Hotel on our second visit and never stayed anywhere else. It had everything we wanted in a vacation hotel: family owned, mid-sized, secure, comfortable, beautifully landscaped, great staff, plus a first-rate swimming pool and a very good and very convenient restaurant. Year after year,...

We stayed with our family of 5. We were able to get a room that had 3 double beds which worked perfectly for us. It also had a small table, chairs and a small couch. Great air conditioning, and hot water shower. There's the Aguada, which we nicknamed "turtle pond" which turned out to be a major highlight for our...

We particularly enjoyed the confort and good cleanness of the bedroom, and the outside terrasse restaurant. The swimming pool was small but very enjoyable. The mornings are very peaceful, you can enjoy your coffee in front of the aguada (lake), and you can easily observe the beautiful colorful birds flying over the lake.

Very nice and clean, perfect pool , surroundings awesome and the food was really good. Only drawback is they have to put some thing to deaden the sound of slamming doors. close to every thing and felt safe

Aguada has clean and comfortable rooms, more than reasonable pricing and knowledgeable staff. The owner/manager Shalue goes out of her way to accomodate her guests. The food is good and the location is great for accessing local attractions. Family friendly.

A pretty hotel a bit off the beaten track, you have to get a taxi to the main area but it only takes about 10 mins and is cheap. The pool was a good size as was the room. We were in a room by the lake so had a nice view, The food was fine and the breakfast was...

I come to Cayo district every November and look forward to staying at the Aguada. This was quick trip and I did not make a reservation ahead of time, I was sight seeing a local ruin and realized I would rather just spend the night than drive back to placencia. I don't recommend relying on this scenario, ( I suggest...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked away in a tranquil setting in San Ignacio's twin town, Santa Elena, you'll find The Aguada Hotel and Restaurant, named for a watering hole used by the Ancient Maya, and on our grounds sits a watering hole. This bucolic setting is attractively landscaped with blooming trees, orchids, iguanas, over 63 species of birds, and a lovely array of foliage and flowering plants. Combined with a charming atmosphere, attractive hardwood interiors, an excellent restaurant and bar, swimming pool complete with a patio, and all located in the best valued hotel in Belize; The Aguada is hard to beat. This quiet getaway is a welcome change from the hectic pace of downtown San Ignacio. Owned and operated by the Butcher's, a Belizean/American family, the most distinctive aspect is the family atmosphere... we'll make you feel instantly at home! ... more   less
