Our family stay at Chaa Creek was truly amazing. We stayed in a riverside cottage, which was a very large room divided into two areas with two beds, a porch with hot tub and a massive bathroom. The room was clean, the bed was super comfortable, and the bath had two sinks so no issues with over-crowding. The food was... More

Have stayed in a number of room options here over the years, from the Macal River camp to luxury rooms. Had an excellent retreat as a solo person in between two business meetings on one occasion in which I stayed 5 days in the most luxurious accommodations. Have also visited with family and as a romantic destination. The grounds are... More

We spent three days here in April, the staff were friendly and gave us lots of great reccomendations for what to do togher with our two sons. There are so many activities that are geared to help folks gain a deeper understanding of the natural habitat and values including cave tubing, canoeing, night walks in the forest, discovering the many...

This is a luxury location. The cottages, gardens, facilities, pool, staff and food are all top class. Difficult to find fault! The hotel offers many tours (Maya temples, for example - a good base to see Tikal) and local activities (canoeing, horse riding, etc) plus on-site massages etc.

I felt that it was a plush family camp at first, but the meals and the service were really excellent. Such a friendly and helpful staff. Top notch service all the way - such lovely people. They really go the extra mile in service. They took care of us and seemed to really love what they do. We signed up... More

The site is great as are the staff. The rooms are what you would expect. Unfortunately Cha Creek boast of how wonderful their food is. The dinner menu is limited and selection is mediocre and expensive for what it is. The amenities are very good

The lodge at Chaa Creek is amazing. It is set in 365 beautiful acres, with beautiful accommodations and helpful and resourceful staff. There is so much to do and our family felt very safe at all times. Miguel was an awesome guide and Marco and Saul made every evening at the bar a fun adventure for the family. We will... More

We loved staying at the Macal River camp at Chaa Creek. It was rustic but clean and the food was great. The caretakers take great care of you and are very helpful. Docio and his wife really make this place excellent! You can use the swimming pool, bar and restaurant at the main resort which is a 10-15 walk through... More
