Tropicool Hotel

San Ignacio Town, Cayo

Hotel Description
Tropicool 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 and outside there are three individual cabins (in the town!) with private bath and cable TV, offering a little more privacy. Everything is meticulously clean?from the outdoor sitting area to the bathrooms. The 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.

History & Owners
Andrew Wollacott was in the British military, stationed in Belize during the 1970s when he met Doris (at a disco!) and later they married and stayed in Belize. Together they have two children of their own and also serve as foster parents. They are easy-going, friendly and are dedicated to their family business. When they were thinking of opening the hotel in 1995, they were discussing the possible names with their niece who came up with the name ?Tropicool? and the name stuck.
