San Ignacio, Belize

We spent two nights at the San Ignacio hotel recently and would highly recommend it anyone looking to stay in the town itself. The rooms are modern & beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need, including a hammock on your private balcony (which was very welcome and put to good use!). The restaurant, although pricier then other places in...

Great location close to town. The food was good and the room was way nicer than I expected for this part of the world! The iguana reserve was a fun extra that you should take the time to do since it's located at the resort. They also have a tennis court by the pool.

Wonderful grounds, clean rooms, good food and hard-working staff impressed us. Staff can book your tour to the Macal River canoes, ATM cave, Botanic Garden, Iguanas and Medicinal Plant Trail as well as Tikal. Ted Howe was especially pleasant and knowledgeable; he's an expert on birds and birding, Mayan and New World history, local animals, foods and politics. Nandina Rodriguez...

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...

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Open to guests since 1976, San Ignacio Resort Hotel provides unsurpassed levels of luxury and Belizean hospitality. 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". A short walk puts you in downtown San Ignacio or in the middle of Belize's ancient Maya temples known as Cahal Pech.
