Great hotel. Very, very friendly staff and very helpful. The hotel is in a great location and the staff will help you with any questions about anything. They made several phone calls for us to find out about different sites for us. The food at the resteraunt wasn't bad but it wasn't great (better off going the short distance to town to eat). Nice pool and good service. The rooms are clean and comfy but nothing special. They have an Iguana habitat that is great and Eddy, that does the tour, was great and very freindly. Would not mind staying there again.

I recently spent 3 nights at the San Ignacio Hotel, and can not wait to return! The hotel is perfectly located, at the top of a hill over looking the city. It is a quick 5 minute walk to all of the restaraunts and bars in San Ignacio. And it is only about a 10 to 15 minute walk in the opposite direction to Cahal Pech Mayan ruins(although you have to climb a pretty steep hill!).

Besides the location, the property itself is lovely. The lobby, dining areas, and pool are all modern and stunning. We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel, and the food was delicious. It was more expensive than what you would pay for a meal in town, but it was not by any means a rip off. And happy hour at the hotel bar was a GREAT deal on local rums! The wait staff was so friendly and helpful, it was amazing. They went out of their way to talk about what we had done that day or to give suggestions for our next day activities.

The pool is quite large, and you can order drinks and food to be brought to your chair. We took the iguana project tour, which was unique and provided for some awesome pictures! Our tour guide Eddie was funny an knowledgeable. Tennis equipment is available for use free of cost, and we spent an hour hitting balls around on the old tennis court. Great perk! The nature trails were underwhelming, as they appeared to be in serious need of maintenance, and the path was often covered and we couldn't walk very far. From reading another post, it makes sense that the recent flooding may have caused these problems. No big deal.

The rooms are standard, but nice. We stayed in a room, with 2 beds which opened onto a "backyard" patio. It was pretty humid in San Ignacio, and the room was slightly damp, but it was definitely not a big issue. The AC worked well, and there was also a ceiling fan. Cable TV and standard bathroom amenities also included.

I have already started looking at availability at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel for my next visit to Belize! I loved this property, and also loved the town of San Ignacio. Can't wait to go back, and highly reccommend you get there to check it out for yourself!

My husband and I recently spent five wonderful days at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel in the Cayo District of Belize. We were greeted at the airport by Ted who serves as driver and tour guide for the hotel. He was friendly, gracious and knowledgeable about the area and provided us with a wealth of information regarding the country. We were informed Belize was experiencing the worst floods in 35 years and most of the major attractions in the area were under water. We decided, however, to make the best of this situation and continued on to the hotel. As we entered the lobby, we felt immediately welcome and at home. The San Ignacio Resort Hotel is located up the hill from the charming Town of San Ignacio. A five minute walk will take you into town. The lobby is very impressive as elegant marble covers the walkways, steps and columns inside. A spacious and open air feeling has been created with the use of decks and patios that overlook the town, the swimming pool and the tropical jungle surrounding the hotel. We were greeted at the front desk by friendly staff and given a quick tour of the hotel while Ted carried our bags to our room. A welcoming drink of our choice was included in the quick tour. Our room was clean, comfortable and complete with a fan and air conditioning to ward off the humid Cayo days. Our room opened onto a lovely, tiled patio that overlooked a tropical courtyatd complete with Tangerine trees laden with fruit which we picked and shared with the birds and resident Iguanas. We had a choice of dining options, either in our room, in the colorful Belizian style steakhouse restaurant or on the lovely covered patio that overlooked a great trumpet tree visited by numerous birds daily. We opted to eat all of our meals on the patio. The wait staff was very friendly, cordial and willing to make our dining expereince a pleasurable one. The food was great, especially the Serviche which we had with every dinner. The swimming pool was a refreshing way to cool off after an activity in the hot Cayo sun. There is a tennis court but we did not use it. We enjoyed the tour of the Iguana Project run by the hotel and adopted two Iguanas, with adoption papers no less, who we named Barack and Hillary. Eddie will E-mail us from time to time to let us know of their progress growing up. The hotel has a wonderful medicinal walk you can take but the rains had rendered the paths too muddy and slippery to use during our stay. The Cahal Pesch ruins were a steep hike up the road from the hotel, so we took a taxi instead of the long and hot walk. It was the only Myan ruin open in the country at the time and worth seeing. A small casino is located next to the hotel which provided us with free drinks and a few hours of fun one rainy afternoon. We felt sad to leave when the time came to continue on to San Pedro . We had throughly enjoyed our stay at this gracious hotel that provided us with such a pleasurable and relaxing stay. The staff was exceptionally great and we cannot thank them enough for their help. We decided we would return another time to enjoy the area when flooding was not an issue and would again stay at the centrally located and gracious San Ignacio Resort Hotel.

Not what we expected but made the most of it. Rooms were under construction, that is always fun. Request a room away from the street, pretty noisy. The help is very nice. Definitely take the guided tour right behind the property and walk to Cahal Pech ruins, both are very fun. Watch for 'Belizian' errors in the restaurant. Almost paid 140 dollars for a glass of wine instead of 14.

We just returned from our honeymoon in Belize and really enjoyed our stay at the San Ignacio Resort! We booked the master suite and it definitely lived up to all of our expectations. We were plesantly surprised that the actual room was nicer than the pictures even showed which is not the case with all places you see online. If you are looking for luxury and still a taste of the local culture and people, this is a great spot. Staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The bar makes a great rum punch drink that we quickly got addicted to. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay here and would definitely come back. I'm not sure what the normal rooms are like but the master suite is definitely worth the expense if you are on a honeymoon or special occasion. It is nice to be right in town as well and have access to shops and eating locations.

We will be back!
