First off the family that runs it is amazing and so helpful. Our kids played with there's, they are extremely polite and great polite kids. The family helped us arrange activities and definitely saved us a ton of time and money and certainly went above and beyond expectations.

The best thing about Nefry's Retreat is the beautiful family that runs it! As other people have mentioned, the next best thing is it's location: the fact that it is away from the hustle bustle and noise of downtown St. Ignacio. It is the perfect walk into town and if you don't count or can ignore the dog that barked... More

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... More

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.

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.

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.
