San Ignacio Resort Hotel Review

Queen Elizabeth II once stayed at this highly elegant, comfortable resort with rooms that have verandas facing a lovely hillside. Choose from balcony, deluxe, and "regal" rooms. The Running W Restaurant specializes in steak from the owners' Running W ranch (go with the filet; the sirloin is a little chewy), and the Stork Bar is one of the best places in town to get a drink. Birding and other excursions can be arranged by the staff. There's an iguana hatchery on the property, where you can hold adult and baby iguanas and learn about them (tour is BZ$18). The hotel has a nice tennis court and swimming pool, and next door is a small casino, a branch of the Princess casinos in Belize City and Corozal, packed with video poker machines, one-armed bandits, and a few live tables.
