I have been to Belize once before for two weeks. I was all over the place...visiting ruins, jungle, tubing and Tikal in Gautemala. I stayed in San Ignacio a couple nights then also, and one was good on the edge of town and one night in town not so great accommodations. When I came back I wanted to treat a... More

I stayed here for four nights and had a wonderful time! The restaurant and bar areas are comfortable places to hang out, with lots of hummingbird feeders that attract species I never saw before! Our jungle hut was colorfully decorated and had it's own screened porch and lantern for enjoying the evenings. The grounds are beautifully landscaped giving you a... More

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.

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. The experience was fantastic, lots of laughs, tropical birds to see and simply pure relaxation. What a great way to spend an afternoon and stay cool! Afterwards our group was treated to a... More
