Very impressed with the staff's eagerness to provide service worthy of this excellent review. Everything about our stay was perfect, from the warm welcome, to the exquisite room and delicious food and drinks. The tranquil peaceful early morning sounds of birds and subtle night sounds of different animals that made our stay that much more pleasant and entertaining. A relaxing... More

Chaa Creek really does deserve its excellent reviews. Grounds and rooms are beautiful. Restaurant is very good (order the conch!) The butterfly exhibit was the most informative we've visited. Tours to Mayan sites, especially Caracol, are well organized, fun, informative and highly recommended, but there are plenty of on-site activities, from canoeing to birding, as well. Wish we had stayed... More

I booked as a package with Chabil mar (see review), and I was overly impressed ! From the location to the accommodations, and the friendly guides, they really tried to make my stay the best possible. The concierge was honest and available, helped me make reasonable plans and most of the tours are personalized or small groups! The restaurant is... More

On our way from Tikal to Placencia we camped for 2 days at Chaa Creek. Beautiful natural environment, great cabine and lots of on site activities to explore the surroundings. Would have loved to stay longer !

We spent 3 nights at this resort as part of a trip travelling around Belize organised by Viaventure. Having flown in from Chan Chich by light aircraft which was followed by a short drive from the local airport we arrived at what can only be described at first class luxury. The rooms are bungalows based, set into the hillside and... More

Chaa Creek exceeded every single one of my expectations. World class service, staff, food, and accommodations all around. There is no other place to stay in the San Ignacio area. Trust me. You'll be welcomed with open arms and pampered with timely service and a concierge that does everything for you. Hats off to them for keeping this up for... More

Food in restaurant and staff and service was personal and great. Took horse ride with Allen as our personal guide explaining all the trees and flora as we rode while attending to all our needs.

We stayed at Chaa Creek a couple of weeks ago and loved the lodge, the location, the pool, the food, and the amazing and caring staff. The owners are clearly invested both in the community and in their employees and it shows. It was very hot while we were there, but spent the hottest time in caves of day expeditions... More

Each year we have stayed longer and brought more family to share the experience. We love the location in the jungle, the accommodations are outstanding, but it really is the staff who make us feel like family. From having breakfast with Rose, Jessica and Alica, going for a horseback ride with Teddy, walking the ruins with Robert and a jungle... More

Visited on April 20-24, 2015 and were very pleased. The lodge is quite remote and meals are basically available only at the restaurant on site. The meals were excellent as was the service in the restaurant. The rooms were by far the best of the 3 sites we visited in Belize and were exceptional. We had a room with the... More
