“A Night Of Restful Bliss”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Dorla and I chose to overnight at the San Ignacio Hotel on the eve of the second Ariel Rosado Memorial Education Foundation Annual Bike Ride. This was that best choice we could have made for a place to wrap up Ride preparations and rest and prepare for a hectic day starting at 5:00am for a 6:00am. Ride Start. From the moment we entered the door at 5:00 pm. Friday afternoon until we stepped out at 4:30 am the following morning the staff was warm, friendly and accommodating - formal when appropriate and relaxed and jovial when the time was right. We had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Paulita (Manager/Owner) who took the time to personally inquire into our well being and comfort. The accommodations and services are better than most of the 5 star hotels we stayed at including those in the USA, Canada and the UK. Thanks for a pleasant and restful stay - we will certainly make the San Ignacio Hotel our hotel of choice when in San Ignacio. Our international Ride participants from Canada who stayed at the San Ignacio Hotel were similarly impressed.

Our family of four recently stayed at the San Ignacio Hotel on a three day tour (our second to the Cayo area). The staff are friendly and accommodating. The resort lobby is very beautiful, the rooms are pleasant and clean. We were able to enjoy coffee for our early morning birding (5:30am the best time) on one of the many decks facing on to the 'jungle' (beautiful treed area at the top of a hill). We finally got to see toucans!
We received complimentary rum punch upon arrival and a bottle of water each. Unfortunately you have to pay for bottled water after that. I would think at the price of rooms, bottled water would be available free of charge. Perhaps a refillable water container per room and a centrally located water cooler? There were also no glasses provided in the rooms, we had to wash and reuse the rum punch glass for teeth brushing.
I would also recommend the hotel clean up the pool area (used towels) and replenish towels late afternoon for guests returning from excursions.
I recommend the San Ignacio Hotel as a centrally located hotel, a short walk into town and easy access to other Cayo excursions. I would choose to stay there again.

Room Tip: We booked a garden room and a premier garden room. I did not detect any difference in the rooms.

From the minute you arrive until you leave, the staff treats you well ... they know your name and make you welcome; they make jokes and the rooms are also great. Rooms are clean, fresh, tiled ... bathroom and toiletries are cool!

The restuarant is great - good food, great location to observe the fauna and flora - esp. the birds and the iguanas.
The pool is open 24 hours (that in itself is awesome), which is wonderful for a late night dip or early morning swim.
The grounds, the location, the staff - everything was wonderful.

I recently had the opportunity to spend one evening at the beautiful San Ignacio Resort Hotel in Cayo, BELIZE. I had a most wonderful experience - but certainly, one evening is not enough time to enjoy everything this wonderful "gem" of a resort has to offer. The hotel is spotless, the staff is incredibly knowledgable and efficient. Every team member I encountered was professional, pleasant and ready to assist. The food and beverage outlets are wonderful - coffee on the veranda in the morning is simply a must! The guestrooms are clean, comfortable and well equiped and the bathroom shower is wonderful. If you are in Belize, you must make time for a visit to the San Ignacio Resort Hotel!!!

We loved everything about this resort. The staff was sensational-very friendly and hard working and did everything in their power to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The food was delicious and the rooms were very nice. We will definitely go back. Perfection!

By far the nicest accommodations in San Ignacio. Great food and drinks. Try the watermelon juice any time of day! No fitness center but there are no shortage of outdoor activities do get your heart rate elevated. We had reserved a single queen bed. However due to the holiday we were given two twin beds.

My wife and I are on the tail end of a 2 week stay in various parts of Belize, and the San Ignacio Resort Hotel was by far the best place we stayed. To give you some context, we also stayed at duPlooy's in San Ignacio (also very nice), All Seasons Guest House in Hopkins (not recommended), Caye Reef Apartments (great but too big for a couple) and Sea Dreams Hotel in Caye Caulker. Although we enjoyed the experience at some of the other places, the SIRH by far exceeded our expectations.

We arranged all of our own outings, so they did not assist us with that, but we did get good dining recommendations from Mary at the front desk, which was very helpful since most of the places in town were shut down for the Easter holiday weekend.

We stayed for 3 nights and the staff was very attentive. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious and the pool area was more than adequate. Unlike some of the other places we stayed, the staff there immediately addressed any issue we had - not that there was much to deal with because the hotel is already fantastic.

In short, if you are headed to the San Ignacio area, it is well worth spending a little extra to stay here and using this as your launching area for the many day trips that the area has to offer.
