    We stayed at the lodge for 5 nights and loved it: me, my husband, and 2 teenage daughters. We stayed in one of the cabanas with a queen bed and bunks. We were very comfortable. We had a great screened porch, where we would hang out in the evening before dinner. Ron and Al are very welcoming - they are... More

    Overall, the place was a more primitive stay than some of the all-inclusive resorts nearby. This turned out to make it much more comforting and warm. The hosts Ron and Al are great company, and the food was always delicious. They organized a bird hike, a night hike, and river tubing around the property - all of which I highly... More

    We had a booked a stay here for 3 days after touring Guatemala. We had hoped to do the ATM Caves and Xunantunich. Unfortunately before we arrived my partner had we had both been struck by a stomach bug. Al and Ron were extremely welcoming and hospitable. Their grounds are a paradise, with humming birds flying right over your head... More

    We had a group of 7 friends on our trip to Belize and Macaw was our first stop. In finding the lodge and planning out our tours from day to day, I had several conversations with Ron. He was always quick to respond and provided the right level of guidance and insight for us to plan the perfect trip. He... More

    We ended a scuba trip with a stay at this wonderful resort!!!!! Ron, Al and their staff were absolutely delightful!! Not sure if I have ever stayed anywhere where more attention was paid to what I might want or need, all of the time. The grounds are stunning, the rooms just beautiful and the food was simply delicious!!!!!! ( I... More

    We spent 4 nights at Macaw Jungle Lodge. It is a lovely place, and the owners are wonderfully hospitable. But the main fact is that it’s a long 4x4 drive to get here, and there is really nothing much to do once you arrive. It’s a great place to read a book, or perhaps write one. If you want to... More

    I guess this just goes to prove that you can never please everyone ! What confounded me the most is that I as a university professor, I cannot figure out what you were thinking when you chose to stay at a jungle lodge ? Would we be an authentic jungle lodge if we were located in town or on an... More

    My husband and I spent three magical days at Macaw Bank Jungle Lodge in May, and we spent much of our trip home planning our return. Our hosts have created a tropical paradise deep in the jungle where we wandered the grounds amidst gorgeous flowering plants. Jason (a staff member who grew up in the area and who felt more... More

    In March of this year our family of about 30, (family re-union) arranged a river tubing experience thru Ron and Al at the Macaw Bank Jungle Lodge.

    This place was absolutely perfect for the jungle/far away experience. Ron and Al the owners were fun and very accommodating. Their staff was so very nice and the meals they had available were fresh and delicious. We had our own little lodge with open views so we could listen and see all the wildlife around us. Great stay!
