We spent 3 days and nights at the Sleeping Giant, but wished we were there for much longer. The staff are great folks who can actually remember everyone's name, what they drank the day before or what they ate for dinner. Everyone was helpful and friendly and entertaining in every way. We checked out the ruins, and learned more from... More

We had an amazing time at this resort. It is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in a spanish Casita and were blown away by how beautiful it was. The staff was sooo nice and helped us decide what adventures to do. They took time to make us special drinks and even just chat about things in belize. We had a great... More

Beautiful location, great friendly, helpful, and welcoming staff. Rooms are wonderful with great jungle views. A number of trip excursions are available and are all easily arranged thru the staff. If you're looking for seclusion and peace and quiet, this is a can't miss place to stay. Highly recommended.

Sleeping Giant Lodge (named for the mountain it is nestled against) is a beautiful lodge in the heart of Belize. Its grounds are immaculate and the staff were the best that we have seen (particularly Eugene and Garreth in the front staff). They were very accommodating, friendly, and just fun to be around. I spent 5 days there with my... More

Pure luxury. We did the beach and jungle package, and Sleeping Giant’s jungle portion spoiled us. When we arrived, Jason greeted us with welcome drinks. He set the tone for a fun, relaxing, luxurious stay – while feeling genuinely welcomed. After lunch Jason gave us the tours of our rooms. He had as much fun showing us as we did... More

Staying at the Sleeping Giant Lodge is a must when visiting Belize. LOCATION: The lodge is located outside of Belmopan in the beautiful lush jungle. This area was by far our favorite as it was more hilly and less dry with more flora and fauna than places around San Ignacio. The Sleeping Giant is an actual mountain and a great... More

I have never stayed anywhere where all of the staff were so welcoming! The casitas were very clean and luxurious and the towel creatures and... More

We stayed at the Sleeping Giant for 2 nights last fall. We reserved the River house as we had our 2 kids with us and wanted to make sure we had enough space. We didn't need to as the River House was almost too big for us! Two extra large bathrooms, a kitchen (which we never used), two large rooms... More
