The staff is warm, friendly, helpful and incredibly knowledgeable.It is a testament to our affection for them to acknowledge Ricky, Alice, Misael, Rosana, Maria, Selwin, Alexie,... More

This is a beautiful place with a fantastic menu. We never had a bad meal. It's a great setting, but it's the staff that really makes this place. The guides that took us on our tours were so informative and really knew their subjects. From Selwin on the Creatures of the night tour to Darren on the Xunantanich tour, these... More

Truly the most amazing property I have yet to visit and be blessed to stay at. It was a perfect place for myself and my 14 year old daughter to stay as it would be for a romantic trip. It is gorgeous, private, clean, thoughtfully designed - the list goes on. The staff is generous, friendly and knowledgeable. The adventures... More

Wow! Chaa Creek is awesome. The food at the restuarant is SOOOOO good, and the resort is beautiful. The rooms don't have AC, but they are designed in such a way that it doesn't really get hot. I also really love that they are committed to being eco-friendly and supporting the community. The trips and tours were fun, but just... More

I can't say how much I loved my time at Cha Creek. Everyone was more than willing to help you and I almost felt like you got to know everyone who worked there. (In a good way) My only complaint and I know it's jungle and I should expect bugs. We stayed in the Spa Cabin room 24. Why not... More

We recently returned from a two week trip to Belize and I can honestly say that our week stay at the Lodge at Chaa Creek was our highlight. If I could give this place 6 stars I would. On arrival you notice the immaculate grounds, beautiful cottages and inviting infinity pool that lies in the center of the grounds. But... More

Chaa Creek is the most beautiful place, stunning views, excellent facilities, marvellous food, fascinating wildlife and exciting excursions. But the most outstanding feature is the staff. All are friendly, happy, helpful and knowledgeable. We were greeted each breakfast time by the smiling faces of Rosana, Alice and Maria. They couldn't have been more helpful. Misael catered for our every need,... More

Magical. No electricity but kerosene lamps are lit in your cabin every night. The best food I had the entire time I was in Belize, shared with other campers. Epic bon fire nights. Like summer camp for adults with alcohol. Howler monkeys, scorpions, wolf spiders, stories to tell...

Let me start by saying that I wanted to give the overall visit to Chaa Creek a 3 but the bar staff and spa totally redeemed this trip so I bumped it up to a 4. I will also admit that the facilities and staff are excellent and the pictures are accurate, BUT if you are looking for a fun... More

Our 23 palm thatched cottage rooms ensure a good night's sleep and delightful mornings accompanied by the sing song of a rainforest waking up, and guests can choose a Complete Garden Suite, an Orchard and Spa Villa, Macal Cottage or Tree Top Suite, all equipped with a Jacuzzi for even extra comfort. As one example, under our Chaa Creek Cares program, 10% of all accommodation revenue goes straight into environmental and social programs, and in supporting Green and community groups. We sleep better, and you will too, knowing that your stay at Chaa Creek has a positive effect on Belize and our very special pristine natural environment.
