My best friend and I traveled to Belize earlier this year and stayed at the Howler Lodge for three nights. You're treated just like family at the Howler Lodge--you don't have to lift a finger or do any trip planning--Ed and Mel have it covered. On our way to the Ferry, Ed and Mel were so kind to send us... More

This was a great place- our only regret was that we didn't plan to spend a few more days here. Its a birdwatcher's paradise- tons of life-list birds sited from our hammock! The food was delicious and you could hear the howler monkeys from our porch. We stayed here our last night in Belize- we had already seen howler monkeys... More

My husband and I decided to stay at the Howler Monkey Lodge since it was located next to the Community Baboon Sanctuary. Before making a reservation I emailed Ed and Mel numerous times with questions. They were so kind to respond back to all of my emails. I felt like I was disturbing them. However, after I made the reservation... More

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of our trip. Our trip didn't start well... we missed our flight to Belize! I emailed Mel that we would be getting in a day late - No problem for them. We also lost our car reservation because of the flight delay - again, no problem! Russell came and picked us... More

We stayed here near the end of February and it was the most relaxing and peaceful place I have had the pleasure to stay at. Comfortable and charming accommodation, fabulous food (and lots of it) and really delightful and wonderful hosts. Read all the other reviews - I can't add anything more that hasn't been said. I plan to return... More

Its not very often I want to sit back and relax, but the tranquility of Howler Monkey Resort enticed me to rest awhile in the porch swing and in the hammock of our private cabin. I watched the river flow by, alive with king fisher, heron and other birds. Howler monkeys break the stillness with their distinct call in the... More

I jokingly refer to this place as the Goldilocks Resort. It is not too fancy, not too rustic, it is in the center of everything, making easy access to all sorts of stuff, the food is great, Ed & Mel (the owners) are very helpful and easy going. This place is “just right!” Located 25 minutes from the airport, on... More

We arranged a 2 night stay at HMR and were picked up from the airport and dropped off at the water taxi terminal in Belize City. Organising this package saved us so much time and hassle getting around Belize, as we were only going for a short time and had no idea where to start. The cabin had a river... More

I'm going to start by telling you what this place is not. If you are expecting a resort, which we had just come from, this place may be a let down. We stayed here with our 3 children at the end of our vacation because it is only 20 miles from the Belize airport. Had we known better, we would... More

I read the three reviews right below (Sheilamac224, StanleyParkSeawall and DeAnne F). I find them very exhaustive and I agree with them: I loved my stay at the Howler Monkey Lodge and my hosts Ed and Mel and their two kids and I really enjoyed Mel's home cooking (delicious!!). I loved my cabin by the river from where I saw... More
