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

My family of 5 just got back from a wonderful stay at Chaa Creek. We only had 3 nights there and I wished we had planned on more. We were greeted by Ricky at the airport and he was with us for our stay. My family loved that we got a chance to get to know him and what a... More

Chaa Creek is nearly perfect. The location of the resort is one of the most beautiful in Belize and the organization runs tightly with every detail considered and every interaction easy and pleasant. The owners and staff take care to balance authentic luxury (without pretense) and outdoor adventure. Do yourself a favor and stay at Chaa Creek to recharge and... More

We stayed 3 nights at this resort. The rooms were so pretty and comfortable. We are a family of 5 and we had plenty of space in a two story cabin. We enjoyed hiking on the property and photographing the flowers and wildlife. There were howler monkeys in the mango tree right outside our door that we loved watching. The... More

We spent five nights at the Lodge at Chaa Creek and would definitely recommend it. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are large and comfortable, and the staff is helpful and super friendly. Absolutely everyone who works there seemed genuinely concerned about making us happy. There is a nice balance between having plenty to do and being in a nice... More

While traveling in Belize with a group, we held a meeting at The Lodge of Chaa creek. The conference room was nicely appointed, but a bit warm. Though there was great ventilation, I can't imagine having to meet or a day when it was warmer. We met in the a.m. through noon. The food in the restaurant was awesome! We... More

We (my husband, 8 yr old son and I) stayed three nights at Chaa Creek in July. From first arrival, the place and people exceeded our expectations. We stayed in one of the cottages (#17). It was convenient to the pool and restaurant. The room was spacious with a lovely bath and outdoor shower. We loved sitting in the hammocks... More

The cabins are absolutely beautiful, food was delicious, and the staff was warm and thoughtful. Perfect if you love nature. Butterfly preserves, canoeing, waterfalls and the Tikal ruins nearby. Our next hotel paled in comparison.
