We stayed at the San Ignacio resort for four nights as a base camp for our mainland Belize vacation. The hotel is right in town and about 2 blocks from San Ignacio's "Main Street". Wether you book excursions through the resort or on your own, all the companies pick you up right in front of the hotel. The hotel staff...

Absolutely loved this place! The hotel and grounds are a tropical paradise, is am5 minute walk from San Ignacio downtown, a 10 minute walk from the Cahal Pech ruins and it has a casino next door for some late night fun - what's not to love?!!

Staying at this hotel was an excellent experience. Upon arriving, we were given nice cold towels to put around our necks as it had been extremely hot for the time we were in Belize. We chose this hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Our room was very nice and clean and had a...

What a beautiful and peaceful resort located just up the hill within a five minute walk from the quaint town of San Ignacio. The room was spacious for our family of four with two extremely comfortable queen size beds and a pull-out couch. The staff and owner were always welcoming and made you feel like royalty - now I understand...

We stayed in multiple places on our two-week tour of Belize—the experience we had at San Ignacio Resort could not have been any better. From the moment we arrived we started making friends from every part of the hotel. I would love to name each person here, but I would be afraid that I might leave someone off and that...

Overall the hotel was generally nice and the rooms were above average. The location was good as well, it is a 5 minute walk (up or down a big hill) to "downtown" San Ignacio. Staff was friendly and on-site there is an opportunity for a guided bird watch in the mornings - something like $15USD at 6:30am. I wasn't sure...

Stayed here 6 nights while visiting nearby maya ruins and tikal. Not much to add to all the very positive reports. The garden view room is perfect and has a veranda with 2 chairs and a hammock and covered with concrete ceiling. So you can sit out of the burning sun.

The Resort has been awarded with the title "Hotel of the Year 2012" 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".
