From the beautiful entrance to the excellent food, this resort was outstanding. We stayed two nights, and ate three meals at the restaurant. The room was clean and handsome, with a large porch including a hammock, perfect for reading or relaxing. The coconut encrusted grouper included a tasty sauce, and was our favorite. We enjoyed the candlelight dinners, outdoors overlooking... More

Friends and I traveled to San Ignacio and were quite happy with this hotel. While I think there are a lot of backpacker hotels in San Ignacio, the mid range but nicer hotels are more limited. The location makes it easy to walk into town (5 mins down the hill). The pool area is very nice and well maintained, the... More

This was our first time to Belize. San Ignacio Resort was suggested to us by a family member. We couldn't have had a better experience. Our concierge, Reuben, was absolutely wonderful! He booked us 2 tours (a ruins tour and cave tubing). To our surprise, both tours ended up being private. Not sure if booking through the resort costs more,... More

Thank you for choosing us for your Belize vacation. I am so pleased you enjoyed our hotel and activities. Providing unsurpassed levels of hospitality is what we do best here. As you mentioned, for the most part tours are private when booked through the hotel but not guaranteed. I will be sure to pass on your comments to Reuben also,... More

Reuben booked a tour to Tikal for us & did a great job. He made our stay very memorable. Ted was our guide & there couldn’t be a better guide in all of Belize! He was very knowledgeable. Abdon did our green iguana & medicine tour. Fun, great guy who really knew his stuff! I’d recommend SIRH to anyone going... More

Hotel is ok, lovely terrace but the basic rooms are exactly that.. Do not book tours through them.. They properly overcharge and rip you off, we paid almost double the amount ($160) on our ATM tour than those who booked in the town ($85).

Hello Wayno_and_Holly, Thank you for choosing the San Ignacio Resort Hotel for your Belize vacation. You are correct that our in house tour company charges a bit more than in town tour companies. The product and amenities we offer with our tours are slightly different that what is received in town. Our transportation vehicles are secure, air conditioned and well... More

We stayed here three nights. The hotel is very nicely located - short walk up from town, but not in the thick of it. Also very quiet, and has a nice pool area. The room itself was nice if perhaps, as other reviewers pointed out, a little dated. I found the bathroom very nice, minus the louvered door which did... More

Visited briefly for a conference...cannot complain. I like the back porch for al fresco dining. The dishes are inspired by local favorites, and all the ingredients are as fresh as can be. Clean and stunningly decorated, this resort is next-level. Check out this resident iguana!

We spent 3 nights here at the Regal Room, which is the second-best room options. In my opinion it's over advertised as a luxury hotel. Hotel hardwares such as dining chairs in the restaurant and shower fixtures in the room are old and outdated. Perhaps it was a luxury hotel 15+ years ago, today it's more like a 3-star Holiday...

My group stayed for 2 nights in the Garden View rooms (they have two queen beds and a hammock on the patio). The hotel is just gorgeous, and the staff is very nice and accomodating. Reuben the concierge helped us book various tours, and the bar tender stayed open late to serve us. From reception to servers to maids, everybody... More

Extremely helpful and friendly staff. We unexpectedly had to add a day onto the front of our trip and the hotel was most accommodating. Our room was very nice and the daily treats and turn down service were a nice touch. The restaurant had great food with a nice selection and before we arrived, we did not understand the significance... More
