After exhausting ourselves with full days outdoors, it was great to return to a haven that was so welcoming, comfortable and relaxing. We did not have the energy to leave the hotel for dinner and did not want to after tasting our first meal. We were delighted by the shrimp pasta, the ceviche, bruschetta, and chicken. Dinners and breakfasts were...

Everything about this hotel is just perfect. The food at the restaurant was also amazing and at a reasonable price. I would definitely stop here again. The swimming pool was top-of-the-line! The iguana farm is also on site.

We spent a few days on the Island of Ambergris Caye and then came over to San Ignacio for some Mayan history and fabulous cave tubing. This hotel was a delight. They have a fine restaurant and a pleasant and helpful staff. The front desk and the housekeeping staff really stand out as excellent. Our room was clean and comfortable...

This was a wonderful place to stay. The staff and the food was excellent. The presentation of our food was awesome. The trip to Tikal was first rate from the drivers to the tour guide. Mr. Pete was our driver and he was very caring, attentive and shared his knowledge of Belize and Ecuador. If you take this tour ask...

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here. I agree with other reviewers that it was nice to be able to walk into town and explore or have a meal. All of the staff were extremely nice and a pleasure. You can tell that the owner really wants to make an effort to attract business. I met some consultants who were hired to better...

The hotel staff welcomed us with cool towels and a tasty fruit drink. The whole staff was very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent and the dining terrace has a fabulous view of the nearby jungle canopy. We watched green iguanas and Collared Aricaris from our breakfast table. Don't miss a tour of the hotel's green iguana project. You...

We had a great 3 day stay, service was excellent, restaurant had great food on the deck, the bar did a great job for the super bowl, tours really well arranged by Reuben with excellent tour guides.

Thank you for your review and recommendation. The hammock on the balcony seems to be a favorite place to relax and spot birds. So glad we exceeded your expectations and you enjoyed your Belize vacation.

We spent a whole week at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel (which even the staff there seemed surprised about). At our request, they tailored their Mayan Expedition package to our needs. The tours to Tikal, Caracol, the ATM cave (me only), Cahal Pech and Xunantunich were all great. Our guides (Joshua, Orlando and Cruz) were all excellent and knowledgeable. Our...

My husband and I truly enjoyed the recent stay at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel. The staff are extremely professional, friendly and accommodating and the property beautiful and well-maintained. We plan to come again and again. One important recommendation - handicap bars in the shower.

We stayed at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel for a few days while traveling around Belize and Guatemala. The service was excellent, Reuben was friendly and accommodating.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Open to guests since 1976, San Ignacio Resort Hotel provides unsurpassed levels of luxury and Belizean hospitality. The Resort has been awarded with the title "Hotel of the Year 2012" and "Hospitality Award 2015" by the Belize Tourism Board. Perched on a hillside located within a 17-acre private estate, 72 miles west of Belize City, gives the Resort its unique name of "the only jungle in town". A short walk puts you in downtown San Ignacio or in the middle of Belize's ancient Maya temples known as Cahal Pech. The Hotel offers various amenities where visitors can relax and enjoy amazing views of Belize. In addition, it is home to the award-wining Green Iguana Conservation Project, located on-site. ... more   less
