This is a very nice place; the A/C is cold, the beds, pillows, and linens are better than most people have at home. The pool is clean and refreshing, the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the restaurant has good food and service, as well as a lovely view of jungle, and birds. Also, do not miss the iguana exhibit! Lastly, their coffee is gourmet quality!

We recently stayed at the San Igancio Hotel. We were a party of 5 including a toddler and a senior. The hotel was perfect for everyone. The staff was warm and friendly and the room was spacious and clean. It was nice to be in town where you could walk to restaurants and sights which you would have been limited otherwise if you stayed at a jungle lodge or resort outside San Ignacio Town. The price was half of other resorts and was well worth it given the price of hotels in Belize. Our family would absolutely stay there again.

Room Tip: We had Garden rooms which allowed for our son to play in the garden and having the patio was very ni...

This is our 5th visit to the San Ignacio Resort. We've never been disappointed. Rooms are comfortable and service is outstanding.

We pulled up to the hotel to meet the friendly staff offering us a welcome drink. After getting the tour we were really impressed with how clean and airy the hotel was. Our room was a garden view and was close to the pool. The bathroom was even decorated with little flowers. We ate a few times at the restaurant and visited the bar as well. The staff were always great. The only issue we had was the time it took to get breakfast, it took over 45 minutes and we had a tour booked ( we even ordered only fruit and granola to speed things up). They have one the nicest pools in the area and the location was great. Our AC and TV both worked great.

A quick walk, down a steep hill brings you into town where you can find some better deals on food. We loved that the iguana tours were offered right from the hotel. If you are a bird enthusiast they have a great place for viewing all sorts of tanagers, fly catchers and aricaris. They have a resident bird specialist (Eddie) who came out and gave me some tips.

They say on the site that they have nature trails and a swimming hole, but the trails are only available with a guide and even with the guided medicine tour you will not see the river.

We stayed at the hotel around the same time as prince harry was traveling so the media covering the story also stayed at the hotel. They were a bit loud the first day we were there, but I do not blame the hotel for that.

We were originally planning to stay at one of the jungle lodges, but after seeing where they are located (off a CRAZY mud road) I am very glad we stayed at the San Ignacio resort. It was nice to not have to drive each time we wanted to do something.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden view room so you are not on the street side

Up the hill from the "downtown area", San Ignacio Resort Hotel was a quiet, welcoming small hotel with staff who couldn't do enough for their guests. We were welcomed with a rum punch and given a tour. Our room, a Regal suite with king bed, had a view of the rainforest behind the hotel. The restaurant and pool share the same jungle view and we were entertained each morning at breakfast by the numerous hummingbirds, toucans, and many other birds.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the hotel, very quiet. We never heard any other guests.Birds outside our...

We spent 5 nights in at the San Ignacio Hotel resort and it was very welcoming. Upon check in, we were given a tour of the hotel and the hotel grounds, before being escorted and oriented to our room. The staff is very friendly and helpful, focused on customer satisfaction. The rooms were modern and clean, as well as the rest of the resort. The hotel restaurant was a steakhouse. The food and the views from the restaurant were breathtaking. It was incredible to see all the wildlife the property had to offer, and the restaurant staff was very informative. Our room was so comfortable and very clean. It was a great place to be able to wind down in after all of our daytime adventures. We were very impressed with the service and pleased with the upkeep of the resort. Would definitely stay again and looking forward to the next time we have the pleasure of being there.
