My fiance and I recently stayed here while on a group trip to Belize. The entire experience at San Ignacio Resort far exceeded our expectations in every way. Our room was lovely, including thoughtful touches like small flowers on the tissues and towels. With a pool and lounge area, bar and restaurant, this little resort was a pure oasis after...

First things first, the food: We stayed here with a group and purchased a package that included breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two days. Could not have been happier to eat in the same place two days in a row, and I thought it was the best meals I had during my trip to Belize. Second, the customer service: The...

The people here were extremely nice and the food was excellent. While it doesn't look like much from the outside, you enter an entirely different world when you step through the doors. We especially enjoyed watching Bradford- the resident iguana- eat his lunch while we enjoyed ours. The meat is supposedly local and all who ate meat in our group...

All people encountered here have smiles on their faces, and are happy to see you. Great bar here, amazing food. Beautiful hotel and grounds. The Medicinal tour and the iguana tour are amazingly informative, and chocked full of education. Couldn't ask for a more beautiful chunk of land for a hotel to be placed on. Not to mention San Ignacio...

Hey Bridges, I am so glad you enjoyed your time with us. We had a blast with you and Matt also. So, you are planning to move to SI? That is GREAT news! Looks like we have converted another visitor.

This past week, a large group of us (9 couples) spent a week in Belize and stayed in a couple different locations. San Ignacio Resort was by far the best place we stayed, if not the best place I have ever personally stayed. The staff was unbelievably thoughtful about our needs and anticipated anything else we may have wanted. The...

We spent 5 days in the master suite in late July 2014 at San Ignacio Resort Hotel and loved every moment of it!! With the Mayan package plus a canoe trip for half a day we really enjoyed ourselves. The food at Running W Steakhouse was also very tasty! We ate almost all of our meals there, and made some...

My family and another just returned from an 8 day vacation in Belize, part of which was spent in San Ignacio. This hotel was an oasis. The staff was phenomenal and exceeded all expectations.

Stayed here for 3 nights. It was the perfect spot for our family of 4. Friendly, helpful staff and plenty of space in the room. The pool was a refreshing way to cool off after a long day touring the ruins. Great location in town allowed us easy access to the restaurants and shops in the city (quick walk) while...

Just left Belize. First stayed at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel. In short, it was fantastic. We stayed in a Regal room which I would highly recommend booking (these rooms were apparently named after the Queen of England's stay at the hotel when Belize was a British Colony). The room was big, well equipped, had great air conditioning and really...

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 2016/2012, RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR 2016, 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
