Nefry's Retreat
Ranked #22 of 35 San Ignacio B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We spent four nights at Nefry's and absolutely loved it. The rooms were clean and we had everything we needed. The refrigerator was awesome along with the purified water tank! Jaime directed us to some local places that had fantastic food and the fruit at the market was some of the best that I have ever eaten (thank goodness for the refrigerator). Jaime picked us up at the airport and we knew exactly who to go with (and he drove safely!). He stopped at the Belize Zoo on the way and waited for us to walk through. His family was adorable and made the stay more homey. He was full of helpful information to make our trip fantastic. Nefry's was in town and an easy walk to shopping and food - it immersed us more in the culture and we fell in love with San Ignacio. (Also there were no bugs or cockroaches - extreme pro for me). We would not stay anywhere else when we return.

We stayed at Nefry's for one night and found it a good, comfortable place a little bit out of the way in San Ignacio, which is good because downtown can get noisy. Still, it's only a 5 minute walk to the main drag. A little hard to find, I'd recommend asking the hotel for directions.

The beds were comfortable, the rooms had a/c and the showers were great. Rooms are pretty large. There is even a large water cooler in each room. The owners were very friendly, giving us good advice about dining options and directions. We did reserve two rooms with four beds and found only one bed per room when we arrived. However, this was quickly changed in about five minutes. The owners also let us bring in our car into the locked driveway. Checking in and out was a breeze. A good options for just about everyone with great value.

We spent 4weeks here with our staff from the UK doing volunteer work and we couldn't have wished for more. Nefrys is family run and this family is second to none. Nancy & Jaimie and their beautiful kids couldn't have done more for us. They organised trips, transport and doctors and assisted all of us with our individual requests whatever we needed. Nefrys is only a 5 min stroll to the main shops & restaurants. Although there is no pool there is easy access to hotels close by you can use with pools for a small charge? The rooms are spacious & clean with hot & cold drinking water, AC and Wifi. There is a patio/seating area with dappled sunlight which is great for relaxing. Value for money I don't think Nefrys Retreat could be beaten.

Room Tip: There is one room that has a small kitchen area with fridge, which is useful if not wanting to eat o...

We stayed at Nefry's Retreat over the New Year, found it to be very comfortable, and the owner very helpful on advice in the area and any other queries we had, even offering his personal phone when needing to call my bank from overseas regarding a stolen credit card which was lovely. It is a 5 minute walk from the centre of town, rooms were big with adequate amenities and good value.

We spent 7 nights at Nefry's this December and were happy with our stay. The rooms were a bit old, but very clean, and the owners were happy to help with advice about the area. They had begun renovations during our stay, so the rooms will likely be improved for the next travelers. The location was a short (5 min) walk from the main street and square in town, close enough to be convenient, but far enough to avoid the noise. Overall, a good choice if you are looking for a clean, reasonably priced, safe and friendly place to stay while in san ignacio.
