Hi-Et Guest House

San Ignacio Town, Cayo

Hotel Description
This family-owned and operated guesthouse combines comfortable and affordable rooms with a family atmosphere that keeps guests returning. The Colonial-style house with wrap-around verandas, high ceilings, lots of windows and mahogany furniture gives an at-home kind of feeling. All rooms are on the second floor providing nice views of town and fresh breeze. Guests can choose budget rooms with shared bath or deluxe rooms with private bath, all with hot water and fans. The many common sitting areas, located inside and outside of the guesthouse, make great places for socializing with other travelers or the friendly owners.

History & Owners
The Simmons family named the property after the family member, Ethel, who opened the hotel with five rooms in the late 1970?s. They used the family house and the hotel maintains the original feel of a home. Ethel?s son Cyril and his wife Beatrice now run the hotel. Cyril is a Justice of the Peace, is active in the community and can often be seen around town. Cyril and Beatrice love sharing their lives and culture with their guests!
