I recently spend several nights here with several co-workers on a business trip. The hotel and staff were absolutely incredible, making us feel welcomed immediately upon arrival. The accommodations are new and updated and the hotel/resort is extremely clean. The food at the restaurant and bar are delicious. For such an incredible location, the price is fair and reasonable. I...

Very noteworthy was the friendliness, helpfulness and willingness of the entire staff. The full hotel experience was awesome from beginning to end. Everyday a bit of surprise was added to your stay in terms of a food treat left in your room and beautiful decorations using natural floral arrangements. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The environment is beautiful....

Recently spent 3 nights here with my family with 2 children. This is the best place to be in San Ignacio. They arranged for all the activities and trip. The Hotel management and restaurant folks went out of the way to ensure we had a great relaxing time. They work really hard. Definitely worth visiting again. The rooms are clean,...

We went for drinks and dinner after the iguana project. Great balcony overlooking the jungle, swimming pool, good food (especially the desert) and excellent waiting service. Reasonable prices, especially considering the quality (and the Queen stayed here!).

Entire staff (including Reuben, Damien, Keith, Amy, Kenny, and Nigel) is amazing! Everyone wants you to be comfortable and happy! Nigel actually got my very (very) hesitant daughter to hold an iguana! He is hilarious! We stayed in the Royal Suite- beautiful view and extremely quiet. There was an issue with the water in our room the last night which...

We stayed at the San Ignacio Hotel for 3 nights, and I am convinced that this is heaven on earth. The staff is so kind and gracious. We especially enjoyed Keith the charming and creative mixologist.

My entire family, 9, spent 3 nights at the San Ignacio Resort. It took about an hour and 45 minutes from the airport to arrive by a van driven by Cruz.

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". A short walk puts you in downtown San Ignacio or in the middle of Belize's ancient Maya temples known as Cahal Pech. 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
