We spent two nights at Clarissa Falls Resort while touring XunanTunich and Actun Tunichil Muknal. It was the perfect peaceful location and we were treated well. The guest huts are clean but a bit primitive. The falls were just outside our door so we fell asleep at night listening to the river. Our host Chena was wonderful and an excellent... More

We saw the sign on the highway so we stooped in for lunch after exploring Xunatunich. Had a delicious, inexpensive lunch in a lovely spot! I just wish that we had had swim suits with us for a dip in the river. A charming find.

We were only there two nights for a study abroad trip to Guatemala and it rained the whole time, but it was such an amazing experience. First off the owners are super accommodating; our group was rather large but they still managed to find the space so that my significant other and I could bunk comfortably by ourselves. There is...

We had the pleasure of spending two nights at Clarissa Falls and would have loved to stay longer. It's nestled in an agricultural area next to the Mopan River. The thatched-roof cottages are basic, clean, well-tended and very comfortable. The fruit trees on the grounds attract a wide variety of birds making this a great location to stay and rest... More

We spent 6 nights at Chena’s lovely lodge in mid-December. Clarissa Falls is just outside of San Ignacio on the Western Hwy. convenient to Xunantunich, Cahal Pech, Tikal and many other archeological sites. The lodge sits on a portion of the family’s ranch, with well-kept grounds and plentiful hammocks. We spent several delightful afternoons relaxing and watching the resident birds... More

My wife and I spent two weeks in Belize, and our last night in the country at Clarissa Falls with Miss Chena and Jose. Truthfully, there could not have been a more perfect place to end a truly magical trip. We did not feel that we were spending the night at a "resort", but rather like we were special guests... More

Our family stayed here in April of 2015, some of us for just 2 days, and the rest of us, the lucky ones, for almost a week. It is a great place to just kick back and relax.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Clarissa Falls is to the West of Belize. It is 4.5 Miles past San Ignacio town, and 2 miles from San Jose Succotz village, we are on the heart of a Private working cattle ranch with beautiful lush green pastures and rolling hills. This is a Nature Lovers Paradise. Our Thatched roof huts are hugged by the Mopan river with the natural beauty of Flora and Fauna. The laid back setting combined with the existing peace creates a feeling of your heart meeting your soul to the sound of the cascading Clarissa Falls. ... more   less

“Even though the huts are listed to sleep four (1 queen and 2 twins) we decided to put one couple in each hut and it worked out very well.”

“We stayed in #2. They are simple and clean, but not luxurious - exactly what you should expect from an authentic Mayan hut (with concrete floors, running water, and electricity - but no AC). :)”

“There are two rows of cabanas that parallel the river. The river's gurgle can be heard from all. The cabanas closer to the restaurant will have stronger WI-FI.”
