The Tropicool Hotel is an inexpensive option that's right downtown. We put a visiting professor there when he'd realized he was going to stay an extra night. It was secure, and close to downtown. It was nice that they were able to help us out last minute. Had a little garden area on site that added some nice green to...

We stayed in one of the cabanas with our own bathroom. Room and bathroom were very clean. Place is quiet and right in the middle of the heart of town. Owner is nice and super laid back. Bed is a wee bit uncomfortable, but not unbearable. Overall, we really enjoyed the stay. Would recommend staying here.

I have traveled to San Ingnacio several times and stayed on Burns ave before. The Tropicool is at the center of the action. I have stayed at other spots in San Ingnacio. For the economy traveler who likes to be near the action this is the spot to stay. Andrew[Walley] and Doris who I have met over the years will...

If you're looking for a clean, well located, reasonably priced place to stay then this is a good bet. It's not overly fancy or atmospheric but it is practical and we enjoyed staying there. We stayed in cabana 1 in the garden which had a screened veranda area which was nice for sitting outside. The room had a double bed...

We had the cabin with the screened porch which was nice to sit on, the bed was comfortable and the room clean. It was pretty chilly whilst we were there we wore our winter coats in the evening and it rained heavily on our first night. The hotel is in a good position and we spoke to the English owner...

Simple and kind service, clean rooms and a nice laundry outdoor. And also super central as you are 50 mets away from main plaza and side by side with tour operators and restaurants. I definitively recommend it for any budget traveler staying in San Ignacio.

I had a single room with queen bed for $15 US per night, and i was right next to the bathroom. The fan worked quite well and kept me cool, though it was noisy. The hotel is on the main drag, so be aware that you will hear the nightlife. Also, there are a couple noisy parrots upstairs, so bring...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tropicool Hotel has an away feeling even though it is only one block from the center of town. The property, which stretches between Burns Avenue and West Street, is dotted with flowering plants and fruit trees: guava, banana, plantain, lime, custard apple and more -- which add shade and coolness to the place. There are rooms with shared bathrooms, outside there are three individual cabins with private bath and cable TV, offering a little more privacy. Everything is meticulously clean from the outdoor sitting area to the bathrooms. This family-run hotel is well-established and includes a nicely stocked gift shop. Inside the hotel there is a bulletin board with helpful information on tours and activities in the area. ... more   less
