I have wanted to stay at Chaa Creek for years and finally got the chance this Feb. Boy was I not disappointed. I was more than pleasantly surprised and extremely pleased at the level of service, accommodations, quality of food, and grounds. Realizing that the resort has been around for a while and this is Belize it is truly amazing... More

The first 4 days of our Belize trip were in the jungle at Chaa Creek! What a way to begin our anniversary trip with the family! Beautiful thatched roof lodges, manicured grounds, and staff were extremely inviting! Our dinners were set up poolside, with our own gracious and friendly wait staff. The food was incredibly delicious: soups, entree's, and specialty... More

The Lodge at Chaa Creek is a great place to base your adventures in Belize. My husband and I stayed there for four nights with our teenage son. There was something for each of us: caving, Mayan ruins,canoeing, bird watching. The casita we stayed in was lovely, the staff was very helpful, the guides were knowledgeable. Physically, the grounds are... More

Nice grounds. Friendly concierges, manager, and waitresses. Food very overpriced for medium quality. Bar staff totally ignored my wife and my friend for 2 hours on our second night, while joking with other guests at the bar the whole time. They were ten feet away but would not come and take a drink order. For the cost of this resort,... More

I'll start with the positive. The whole place is spectacularly beautiful and the attention to detail is evident throughout from the rambling, lush sub-tropical gardens to the thoughtfully appointed accommodations. Everything is quite spread out to afford privacy but the common areas are quite central. Our garden suite was quite large with a small sitting area, a large raised bedroom... More

The second half of our Belize vacation was spent inland. At first as we turned down the dirt road leading to Chaa Creek, my wife asked..."where the heck are you taking me?" Within minutes of our arrival, we were already talking about a return. Our two year-old son loved the location as well. The food is exceptional and amazingly fresh.... More

Really great place. We enjoyed our four night stay, a place for everyone. Our ten year old loved the river canoeing, the owners dogs and the abundance of tarantula's and we enjoyed the setting, scenery, the thatched villa we stayed in and the history of Chaa Creek and the surrounding area. The guides were informative, very helpful and polite. Wish... More

Chaa Creek was the best way to see inland Belize. Be sure to ask for Ricky to be your guide and say hello to Alice in the restaurant! The service is outstanding and the adventure options are endless. Be sure to visit the Xunantunich Mayan ruins as well as the Mayan ruin cave trip via canoe! The weather was beautiful... More

Beautifully done room and grounds in an idyllic setting. Staff was very helpful and caring. The bar area was a spectacular place to be during an unseasonal downpour. Definitely worth a return trip! About the only things we wished for were that the restaurant offer more traditional Belizean dishes, and a wider selection of dry white wines.

We stayed at Chaa Creek for the first 1/2 of our family's February break. The experience from start to finish was incredible. The accommodations were exceptional with large spacious huts and beautiful bathrooms. The staff were just the nicest folks really caring about our experience and service is their number one priority. The owners reside on property and become part... More
