We were quite unaware of Chaa Creek prior to my travel agent's suggestion. At one point, my agent suggested we spend the entire week there instead of heading to Ambergris for a couple days at the end. I didn't understand why until we arrived at Chaa Creek... it's simply... AMAZING. The resort itself is meticulously kept and the staff size... More

My husband and I stayed at Chaa Creek for the first 3 days of our honeymoon in Belize. While we were there, we enjoyed a surreal night hike, incredible horseback ride (with a beautiful picnic lunch), canoe ride, couples massage, and tour of the Xunantunich Mayan ruins. We were blown away by the serene jungle setting and incredible staff. All... More

The resort is only a few minutes drive from the San Ignacio airstrip and is beautiful. It has a country, tranquil feeling about it. My husband hurt his knee on the journey and by the time he got to the restaurant, the hotel had provided him with crutches and offered to arrange for a doctor to pop in and see... More

I was vacillating between staying at Chaa Creek and another property, but a rave review from a colleague was the deciding factor for me, and I'm thrilled that we made that choice. Everything about Chaa is outstanding...the reservations beforehand, helping plan excursions, picking us up from the airport, and more. The property is gorgeous. The rooms were luxurious. The bar...

We took a family trip to Belize - some jungle adventure, and beach (see Victoria House review). two adults and our 2 teenage boys. We had an outstanding time and our teenage boys rate this among their favorite vacations. The Chaa Creek driver met us right outside the Airport in Belize City, took a side trip to the zoo on...

Chaa Creek is an exceptional resort, first rate accommodations, service & absolutely stunning scenery. We have frequented several resorts in Belize & Chaa is at the top of our list! Our second & most recent visit was exceptionally perfect. We decided to leave the peninsula for a little Cayo getaway, at check-in we were surprised with a free upgrade to... More

This was our second visit to Chaa Creek. It remained as charming and enjoyable as our first visit. We visited last year for our 25th wedding anniversary and were so drawn to Chaa Creek and Belize that we returned with our 20 year old daughter. Before we went, our daughter did not like the idea of no AC, no television... More

We stayed at the Macau River Camp for four nights. The staff was so friendly, both at the River Camp and main facility. The River Camp has a rustic, family atmosphere. We saw howler monkeys several times right above our bungalow plus many tropical birds. We also saw a tarantula and scorpion. The home-cooked breakfasts and dinners were outstanding--better than...

This resort is hands down one of the most fabulous hidden gems. We spent three days at chaa creek prior to sailing for a week. The jungle lodge is fabulous. The accommodations are truly beautiful. The grounds are perfectly manicured and the staff is top notch. The activities are endless: cave tubing, zip lining, canoeing, hiking, the butterfly sanctuary and... More

Very well managed resort in beautiful grounds. Nice room with indoor and outdoor(private)showers. Friendly and enthusiastic service. Horseback riding particularly well organised. Interesting butterfly breeding and natural history centre.
