My friends and I had an awesome stay at San Ignacio Resort Hotel. Trinity, the hotel manager stepped in to help us out when we had a minor misunderstanding upon arrival and she gave us great advice on checking out the town. The hotel is located right up the hill, literally a few minutes walk down to the town and... More

This hotel was great, but the staff made our stay exceptional! I wanted to surprise my fiancé with flowers, bottle of wine and candles. The staff put together a beautiful bouquet and picked a very nice bottle of Chilean wine. From Carlos, to Reuben, to Naelia (head bartender) to Abnon (Iguana tour guide) went out of their way to make... More

We really didn't know what to expect for our first trip to Belize, but without a doubt, I stayed in the best hotel for my needs being walking distance from the town. The rooms were spacious, clean and simply beautiful. Housekeeping did a great job and upon our daily return to the room, there was always a delicious sweet treat... More

We stayed three nights at the end of January and absolutely loved it. Everyone treated us so warmly and sincerely and the wildlife viewing was excellent right on site! We felt at ease there and I can not think of anything I could say that needs improvement. A lovely place! We felt welcomed and like we could be our casual... More

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
