Our family of four spent 2 nights in the Creole family tree house at the Amber Sunset, March 14 & 15. Giovanni was very easy to deal with and answered all my questions thoroughly and promptly by email. He arranged the ATM cave tour (a MUST see) and cave tubing for us. Both were fantastic. Since we had a car,... More

We were having a good time touring the place, the room is beautifully set though the pictures posted on the website can't justify the real beauty. The service is top-notch and friendly. We were really impressed by the view and room setting. The location is perfect. Close enough to capital Belmopan and San Igancio town and it is in the... More

My husband and I spent the first week of our 6 week trip in Belize at the Amber Sunset -- and it was a dream come true! I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Cayo District. (In fact, I sent two friends there this week!) What really makes this hotel so special is that it is a... More

We fell in love all over again after having the most amazing Valentine's Day weekend whilst staying at this remarkable jungle resort. It was the perfect get away. The staff gave us a warm welcome which made us feel like we were part of their family. All I can think of now is two words "Tree House". The view at... More

My wife and I recently spent a weekend at this wonderful and unique resort in Cayo, Belize. We honestly did not want to leave. This was just what the doctor ordered after working 50 to 60 hours per week here in the US. The rooms are kept in immaculate condition, very comfortable, and are accented with amazing wood decor. The... More

We had the pleasure of spending 2 nights with Giovani and his staff at the resort and the service/accommodations were superb. It is a small resort and we had the feeling that we had it to ourselves, receiving 1 on 1 service. We enjoyed the casual nature of our guided cave tubing excursion with Marcel who doubled as our bartender.... More

My fiancee and I spent 3 nights at the Resort in November 2014. We could not have been more impressed. From the wonderful local cuisine, to the wildlife on the property, to the kindness and hospitality of the staff, everything was PERFECT. We also arranged for two tours through the Resort -- the ATM Cave and Cave Tubing. Both were... More

It is rich in Mayan history. Thank you for the high recommendations. We look forward to seeing you again very soon! More

We booked our stay in one of the family treehouses at Amber Sunset after trying to find somewhere in the Cayo region that was both (a) available and (b) affordable. Boy, did we ever do well! The service given by Giovanni and his team was amazing, really going the extra mile for us. The resort, as that's really what it... More

I searched all over for a place to stay in the Cayo district and feel lucky to have found Amber Sunset Resort. This hotel is a fairly small (approximately 18 guest capacity) and has a very personal, family feel to it. It's tough to find lodging for a family of 5 but Amber Sunset has a number of "tree houses"... More
