We just returned from a weekend at Vanilla Hills Lodge that was absolutely wonderful! From the moment we arrived we knew we were going to have a great experience. Claudia and Franklin are wonderful, gracious hosts and Claudia has an eye for detail that would be worthy of a 5 star resort. They welcomed us with open arms and helped... More

My husband, 2 boys and myself recently had the pleasure of staying at Vanilla Hills for 4 nights. The owners, Claudia and Franklin were amazing hosts who genuinely care about their guests. From the moment we arrived we felt their warmth, friendliness, and hospitality. We were welcomed with delicious rum punch and shown to our beautiful, clean, modern cabana they... More

Vanilla Hills was the perfect place to spend 4 of our 8 honeymoon days in Belize. My wife and I were extremely thankful we found this place and would highly recommend it to anyone considering accommodation in the San Ignacio area. Claudia and Franklin were amazing hosts on so many levels. They are people that genuinely care and everything they've... More

We had an amazing time at Vanilla Hills during out three nights, Claudia and Franklin were so friendly and welcoming. Claudia did such a great job helping us book our tours/activities, and we are glad that she told us to do the ATM tour as well. My body wasn't glad afterward but the experience was once in a lifetime. I... More

My boyfriend and I did not know what to expect when travelling to Belize and to San Ignacio. We were blown away by our amazing experiences. We stayed four nights at Vanilla Hills (we originally had planned 3 nights but were so impressed we stayed 4). There is a reason this place has such great reviews! Claudia and Franklin were... More

Vanilla Hills Lodge is a little bit of heaven on earth! My husband and I are used to traveling off the beaten track and weren't looking for a mega high end resort in Belize. We were visiting the jungle and weren't going to try and then pretend we were somewhere else entirely. Well, with Vanilla Hills we were well and... More

Staying at Vanilla Hills Lodge is like sleeping in the jungle but with all comfort you would like to have. You can even hear the howler monkeys roaring in the morning. The cabanas are located 5 min outside from San Ignacio. They are very clean, new, modern and equipped with wifi, a complete kitchen, bedroom, livingroom, bathroom with hot shower... More

We were looking for a small quiet place to relax while exploring the area. We were so pleased with this choice. The cottages were beautiful, immaculately clean and so peaceful. A short stroll from the main house and nestled in gorgeous foliage, you get the feeling you are a million miles away. There were three adults in our group and... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Hibiscus house. The owners were amazingly helpful prior to our arrival. Claudia recommended a great tour company and helped figure out transportation around the area. The cabin and the grounds are gorgeous. We marveled over the construction daily. The thought of every amenity. Claudia's meals were to die for (I miss them tremendously). Don't... More

We stayed at Vanilla Hills this past March for 3 nights. We enjoyed everything about it very much, but getting to know Claudia and Franklin, and hearing about their adventure of moving to and living in Belize, made it really memorable. The cabins are quiet, very clean, modern and well equipped. The shower was hot (truly hot!). The food was... More
