We stayed at the resort for only one night, but we had a great stay. The staff, as everyone says, are lovely - very helpful and really make an effort to learn your name and use it! We dined on the outdoor terrace which was fabulous, I loved the jungle views as the sun set. In the morning we had...

We loved everything about our say at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel. The room was lovely, especially the balcony and hammock. The restaurant and grounds are beautiful, and the food was great. I loved the Iguana Project and enjoyed holding and learning more about these interesting creatures. But the most important thing was the excellent service we received. Everyone was...

This is a lovely hotel overlooking the san Ignacio rainforest. You really feel like you are very remote when looking out at all the green, but in actual fact you are very close to the town. The rooms are very nice and comfortable - mine didn't have a balcony, but I gather most do. Try and get one if you...

We needed to make a last minute reservation and were so excited to find this place! It's situated atop the hill and is just gorgeous. Queen Elisabeth stayed here before. The artwork in the halls was so colorful and the pool was great! The staff was helpful and kind-I'd recommend this to anyone!

I recently spent 4 nights at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel. I booked a package which included my room, dining and outings and I could not be more pleased. With regard to a couple of reviews I read, yes it was more expensive than some other places, but you get what you pay for and was worth it. The convenience...

It was a pleasure to stay in San Ignacio Resort Hotel. After the first day, all staff greeted me by name and were extremely helpful. I enjoyed the little messages written in petals on my bed each day and the daily treats left in the room fridge! The restaurant was very good and I enjoyed all meals, especially Belizean specials....

I wish that I could have stayed here. I tried internet, Trip Advisor partners and even walking up to front desk and asking if rooms available. The reason I came to the hotel was to see the Iguana Conservation Project ( a must do activity ). The lobby is very clean, spacious and opens out to back view, restaurant and...

Booked our family vacation to Belize online. The rain forest and Mayan ruins started our Belize visit at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel. We were picked up at the airport then greeted on arrival by the wonderful staff at the hotel. Our luggage was delivered to our room while we were given a brief tour of the property while enjoying...

Check in was fast with someone to take our bags and nice cold towelettes after the 1.5 hour ride from Belize City. We arrived in the room which was spacious and nice with several cold bottled waters and super good natural fruit juice punches on the table and a recently redone bathroom. Super good AC, the hotel is at the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

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".

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
