I recently stayed at the Chaa Creek Camp and found my experience to be amazing! Dosio and his family are superb; taking care of our every need, ensuring things were going smoothly, and always asking if we needed anything! The food was wonderful and plentiful. Thank you for an amazing stay!

I just returned from a dad/daughter trip that was one of the best I've ever had. The staff there obviously want their guests to feel at home. We booked transportation from Belize City airport and was priced up by Mike. He was incredibly professional and safe. He gave us an overview of the history of Belize and its people while...

Highly Recommend! Tree Top suite #10. There are 2 of these. Not a hike up, but walk down from the main common areas to an amazing private oasis in the trees. The suites are built on the side of a hill overlooking the jungle then through to the Macal river. first day we saw a few Howler Monkeys having a...

Everything about our stay was excellent. This is the eco-resort to go to when in San Ignacio. It is a destination for people who aren't even staying at the hotel! We took full advantage of what the property has to offer over four days...canoeing, night hikes, pool, spa, butterfly garden, hiking trails, etc. The staff was extremely pleasant, and the...

We were in cottage #1 and stayed for 4 nights. Everything was lovely, including hypoallergenic bedding we requested. The food is outstanding, varied, nutritious, delicious. Cocktail lounge with espresso bar and a variety of local rum infusions. The staff is warm, cheerful, generous, solicitous, helpful. Francisco drove us to San Ignacio for a medical problem (unrelated to our stay). David...

The lodge has exceptional well maintained grounds, friendly and helpful staff, and wonderful rooms. We were thrilled with the outdoor enclosed garden shower. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The service and friendliness of the staff was perfect. The food was excellent with choices to suit everyone's taste.

Our stay was amazing from beginning to end. All of the staff was so kind and helpful, especially Docio who manages the casitas. The breakfast and dinner provided was delicious, and they made sure you left full. The accommodations were nice and spacious. We enjoyed the casitas--as campers, we loved the outdoorsy feel, while also enjoying all the high-end amenities....

The entire property is gorgeous. What "midgeo" wrote is spot on. The lodge facilities are high end and well cared for and everything is perfect: the art on the walls, the quality of the construction, the pool is fabulous- it's eco friendly salt water and the towels are provided, as is a freshwater shower to rinse off. You can order...

Chaa Creek is a special place. This was our first visit to the resort (we are a couple in our 50's). The facilities are beautiful. The staff are genuinely warm, friendly and interesting. The food is excellent; we go to resorts a few times a year and generally eat most of our meals elsewhere but chose to eat at Chaa...

We stayed 2 nights at the Macal River Camp, and loved it there. The two areas of the lodge could not be more different. When we arrived at the main entrance of the resort, we were a little awed by the manicured lawns, the pool, restaurant, the luxury resort atmosphere. Not our usual surroundings! We felt much more at home...
