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.

Wow! We had such a great stay! The rooms were well appointed. The beds very comfortable. We had a garden room. It was so nice to sit on the porch for coffee or happy hour, to have somewhere to go when one of us was still sleeping. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The food at the restaurant was outstanding!! And the pool so nice to come back to after a day of touring. They took care of our land transfers, cab to get around, and all the other recommendations needed about town. John, the concierge was a huge help. The only thing I would do differently would be to book tours through them for one-stop shopping and help with rescheduling, which we needed. Highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel's Favorite
When you enter the San Ignacio Hotel the first thing you will notice is its grandeur and elegance. After all, Queens, assorted Royals, and heads of state stay here all the time. When you arrive you will be greeted with a cool towel to wipe away the dust of journey from the airport or wherever you have come from. After you have been welcomed and signed in you will be shown to your room. A selection of great local art depicting the wildlife of Belize is on display throughout the hotel. The rooms are all appointed with AC, a large ceiling fan, a writing desk, a small fridge to cool beverages on a hot day, a cupboard to hang your clothes complete with a small ironing board and iron. Best of all, an enormous bed in the suite we had. It was like a huge soft cloud that made it easy to fall asleep after the day's adventures (of which you will have many choices). The bathroom in our suite had a delightful rain shower with never-ending hot water to wash off the grime of zip-lining, horseback riding or exploring the ruins. One of the nicest tours offered is a visit to the Green Iguana Conservation Project where you learn about the efforts being made here on the grounds to help conserve these endangered reptiles once eaten as a delicacy by the local Mayan people. Most of the rooms have hammock-equipped balconies for your private relaxation. The hotel staff will help you with any questions or requests. The building is constantly being maintained and its gardens are being trimmed by a staff that are always smiling. When you enter the main building you will notice an dramatic curved set of stairs that climb one side on the lobby, these lead to the three grand suites, one of which is the honeymoon suite; all of them have many stunning features. Especially wonderful if you are lucky enough to have your destination wedding here. They have a grand ballroom and experienced banquet staff for just such an event. The lobby passes through to the bar and the 'Running W Restaurant' and you can walk to the many level sitting areas that overlook the large pool which has it its own water feature. The dining room is elegantly-appointed and adjoins an open air deck looking out onto the pool, their tennis court, and a wonderful wooded area that has many birds and small animals living right there. So if you're a birder, you can begin without leaving the building and having your first cup of coffee for the day. The staff are extremely knowledgeable about the local birds. We have seen Keel-billed Toucans (the country's national bird) along with Collared Aracaris, 2 varieties of Parrots, Motmots and so many more it is just amazing. The lounge is ideal for a quiet drink and appies while you wait for dinner. The chefs here are great, combing local delicacies and cultural flavours as well as international dishes for those less-adventurous people. We have never been disappointed with any of the features here. The daily housecleaning staff will keep your suite spic and span all while you are away adventuring. We have stayed here many times over the years and don't hesitate to assure you that you will enjoy your stay and you are likely to return many times as we have. The San Ignacio Hotel, a place where you can have a grand adventure. Enjoy! We know we do when we are here. We want to thanks the staff and owners for always giving their clients the highest quality service in everything they do..

Everything about San Ignacio Resort is first class. It’s a beautiful place with amazing people. Our family of five felt like royalty from the moment we arrived. A special thanks to David, our personal concierge, and John, who helped coordinate tours through caves, waterfalls and a daytrip to Guatemala to visit Tikal. All the staff was so welcoming and friendly. The on-site restaurant and bar are fantastic, the pool is refreshing, and our suite was well appointed and luxurious. If you’re going to the Cayo District, look no further than San Ignacio Resort.

This resort is the nicest place to stay in the San Ignacio town. It is a top-notch resort, with impeccable service. They greeted us at the front door with cool towels every time we returned to the hotel. The restaurant has delicious food. The pool is extremely relaxing and in a beautiful setting and the service at the pool is very quick. Most importantly, everyone who works at the hotel is extremely nice and helpful.

We loved spending our last night in Belize at the San Ignacio Resort. Wish we had booked for longer. My older son and I did the Mayan fish cooking experience and we all enjoyed the Green Iguana conservation project. The pool was outstanding too. Service was excellent from all staff, including our shuttle driver Raniero, and the restaurant had amazing food - Jason who was a server and bartender makes a wonderful Negroni and he’s very thoughtful as a server if you’re traveling with kids. We were greeted with ice cold towels at check in and an orientation about the property. They made us feel comfortable and special. Thank you 😊

Just stayed here for a family vacation. We had five people in the garden view room. The room was fine, always cleaned well and was done early in the day. We did the green iguana tour which was super interesting—and got to hold both adult iguanas and a baby one. The staff here is top notch. For example, we gave our laundry at 6-7pm in the evening and expected it back the following afternoon. Instead they finished it for us that night and delivered it to our door. My husband accidentally locked our keys to our rental car in the car right as we were planning to depart. The maintenance staff at the hotel was very helpful in calling a local mechanic to help us get back into the car. Just nice all around!

This place was great. Great food, great people. Everyone smiled and was nice. They found a monkey in the tree and let the kids (and Dads) know and we got to check it out. Beds were comfortable. Hot water in shower. They could set up any tour you wanted. We did Tikal and ATM caves, both were rad.
