My wife and I went to Maruba for our anniversary and had an excellent time there! This is a creative, one-off, unique place that lends itself to a really special experience. The hotel is built in the jungle, down a bumpy road, and fairly secluded from all the tourist traffic (although there are plenty of day trips offered that will... More

We spent New Year’s & consequently, also our honeymoon at Maruba Resort & it was a nice relaxing way to celebrate lots of new beginnings. Unlike the other reviewer who also enjoyed their honeymoon at this resort, we had no celebratory champagne waiting in our room but we had brought our own wine so it was no big deal. Tons... More

We had visited this isolated jungle hotel/spa on a day trip from San Pedro 10 years ago and swore we would return. An on-line special just made this possible for my wife and I, and our daughter and grandaughter. I must admit that we probably wouldn't have booked a three-night stay for four at the regular price. Many of the... More

We had punched 'included' in our trip to the Mayan Ruins and maruba resort was where it was scheduled. The grounds we beautiful and the pools looked great, but we only had lunch.

This is probably the worst experience we have EVER had when traveling – and trust me – we have travelled a lot. Today we drove all the way from Palenque in Mexico to Belize (8 hours inc border).

It was unfortunate they could not get into Maruba after dark. The Resort locks the gate but a simple honk of the horn and a couple of minutes will get you in. We agree you should contact the resort prior to arrival to comfirm your reservation especially when using expedia, hotels.com or some other internet booking engine. We'd confirm you... More

It's a nice resort. For a non-first world country Belize I would rate it a 9 out of 10. Compared to what is a "top resort" in the United States, it would only rank a 7. Their tours are a mixed bag. On the one hand, they've done an excellent job vetting their tour operators which enables you to do... More
