As we sit here at the bar area by the main lodge, getting ready to check out (noooo), we decided to pour our thoughts out about the overwhelmingly wonderful experience we had down at camp. We wanted to write this while we're still submerged in this beautiful oasis, as to not forget any details! As you've more than likely been...

We stayed in room 23 and it was beautiful! It was a little on the expensive side in comparison to some other great resorts we stayed at. The pool was nice but because the public can access it, their weren't enough lounge chairs for us.. The food was great, especially the garnaches and lobster! Great place to stay if you...

Full Disclosure: We only came to this resort to visit the butterfly farm and walk the medicinal trail. The grounds are well manicured and beautiful. Not sure if it's during low season or not but the place was very quiet and tranquil. The property is pretty far away from the San Ignacio town, via an unpaved dirt road. So if...

We stayed at the Macal River camp which was absolutely wonderful. Docio and his family are the best hosts you could ask for! They took such good care of us. And we took full advantage of everything available at the lodge: spa, horseback riding, pool, bar, etc.

I haven't written very many reviews ever… but this place is worth the time. They seriously spoil you in terms of service, food, comfort and convenience. The grounds are immaculate, the rooms are vintage yet modern, cozy and rustic. Remember, though… you are in the jungle. You will see geckos in your room, and the occasional small bug or two...

The staff here are GREAT. Genuinely friendly, helpful and caring - offering tips and organizing a trip to a local doctor for me at the last minute (Belize's medical services were also excellent). The no-tipping policy is hard to enforce as everyone is so great, but it also seems to work because the folks who work here seem happy to...

Fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle. Breakfast and dinner are included and prepared by Docio's wife who is of Mayan descent (she taught me a few Mayan words). Dinner and breakfast were not fancy but so expertly prepared and fresh that they were the best meals we had in Belize (although, the Gibnut we had in Belize City...

My husband and I stayed at Chaa Creek for 5 nights for the first half of our honeymoon. When we first arrived, we were greeted by the nicest and most welcoming staff. As we sipped on some fresh juice made with local fruit, we were brought to our incredible suite. The view was breathtaking! If possible, we highly recommend staying...

The hotel and the grounds are very nice. Everything is kept in tip top condition. Staff is some of the nicest and most helpful that we have encountered anywhere. Tour guides are excellent. Beware of the cost! Everything here is very expensive and there is a high tax and gratuity added to everything! A trip into town will cost you...

Apart from the fact that the Lodge is well out of town we found everything else excellent. Unfortunately we did not get to enjoy all the facilities as time was against us but what we did experience was first class. From what we saw the facilities were not aimed at any one particular demographic but seemed to cater for all...
