Travelers' Choice
Established in 1976, San Ignacio Resort Hotel is a Belizean and family-owned boutique Hotel located in the Cayo District, Western Belize. The Resort is centrally situated on a 17-acre private estate and 5-minutes away of the popular San Ignacio Town—an area that features a variety of cultural, adventurous, and culinary experiences. This characteristic has dubbed the Resort as “the only jungle in town”. The 27-room Resort is renowned for its hospitality services and features the award-winning Running W Restaurant (which showcases meats from the family’s ranch), an on-site tour company (Cayo Gial Tours), in-room wellness treatments, an outdoor swimming pool and tennis court area, the largest event facilities in the District, and the #1 Activity in San Ignacio, the Green Iguana Conservation Project. San Ignacio Resort Hotel has been the recipient of numerous awards including “Hotel of the Year” (2016, 2012), “Restaurant of the Year” (2016), and “Hospitality Award” (2015) from the Belize Tourism Board.

My family and I (kids ages 10 & 12) visited San Ignacio for some adventure, and boy did we find it! Between the Mayan archaeological sites and the caving excursions, this area of Belize really has it all. For our jumping off point we chose to stay at San Ignacio Resort Hotel because of its excellent reputation and location in the town. Our five-night stay at the resort was simply perfect. We stayed in the Jungle View suite which provided a nice amount of space for our family and a really nice private balcony. Enjoying our coffee out there in the morning while listening to the birds and the city starting to wake up was really special. We also made full use of the location. While it’s a bit of a steep hill, it's only a very short walk into town from the hotel. Staying somewhere where the town was in walkable distance was very important to us. It was so nice to be able to visit the market, or just run down to one of the small groceries to pick up a few items. We also walked to Cahal Pech which is not to be missed! Again, it's only a short walk and $5 usd to enter! The staff was also wonderful, with special thanks to our server Elito who was so attentive with anything we needed. Finally, we used the hotel tour company for our excursion to Xunantunich and Barton Creek Cave. Our guide, Cruz was awesome! He was so knowledgeable and good natured. Exploring the site with him in the morning, and then canoeing deep into the cave that afternoon was simply an incredible way to spend a day. I certainly look forward to coming back to San Ignacio in the future.

The four of us had an excellent stay. We felt very safe because masks were required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status. The rooms were comfortable and roomy. The restaurant food was excellent. The staff were very courteous and kind. I loved that when my husband and I returned from an excursion, reception could tell us if my sister and her husband had arrived from their excursion and where they were (room, patio, restaurant). The restaurant arranged for us to have bagged breakfasts and/or lunches when we needed them for our excursions. We took advantage of their Mayan fish cooking experience, which involved learning how the Mayans cooked fish over a fire. Luis, our Mayan guide, was very informative and entertaining. He carried the fish to the restaurant where they added side dishes. Wow, what a finger-licking experience!
