We chose Rumors because of its location, and discovered that if we booked directly with them that we could book for 50% off. Spotless rooms and grounds, excellent, well-priced food (you can choose to eat poolside, in the restaurant, or on the veranda overlooking gorgeous mountain ranges) and a staff that was friendly & courteous. They are a green facility, and you need to let them know when you need new towels, etc. You need to book your breakfast ahead of time, but other meals were available any time you were hungry. This family run small business is a gem., and we will definitely stay there again.

This hotel is typical of a what you might find in a small town. It is well maintainted, the pool are and gronds are probably the best feature. The rooms are a bit dark and small. Staff is superb; when we visited all meals had to be pre-ordered - which was fine. We had breakfast and dinner and both meals were excellent and well priced. The hotel is close to town and grocery stores. You will need a car. Although this is not related to the property, we were heartbroken at the number of stray dogs we saw everywhere around San Ignacion.

We had a group of 30 and basically took over the resort. The rooms are pleasant and very spacious. The country side setting is beautiful. The pool is great and so is the food and bar. However, what makes this place special is the staff. Wow! They were absolutely amazing. They took great care of us all week. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Beautiful resort, sadly due to COVID I was perhaps the only resident at the property on the day. The pool was drained, and no restaurant at the property. The views from the property is beautiful, little drive from both Cayo and Benque. The room was however pretty clean and toilet was quite comfortable. Recommended..!
