Cohune Palms, which was one of the great lodges in Bullet Tree Falls, has closed its doors. It's now all long term rentals, and no longer a B&B. They might be opening a bar up there soon. If so, it'll get added on Trip Advisor.

My husband and I stayed in Cohune Palms in February several years back (before this review was available). The hospitality was great, the food delicious, grounds lush, accommodations exotic. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Part of the adventure of travelling through the jungles and staying in cabanas is getting touch with nature. Coming across iguanas, small lizards, frogs, insects, and... More

We recently had our wedding at Cohune Palms and it was perfect. Mike was a wonderful host. He did much of the decrating utilizing his lovely gardens. He hosted the event and provided staff for set up, clean up and during the event. The grounds and help were impeccable. We did not use his catering or band (because we had... More

I've stayed at Cohune palms several times now and it is absolutely the best place on the river anywhere in Cayo. The breeze there is wonderful. Cooler than staying in town. The entertainment(local music) is fantastic. Can't wait to go back!!!

I stayed here with 2 friends in August 2010. That was a while ago of course, but we had a good experience. We didn't rely on any help from the caretaker/owner, Mike. We had done our research and booked our trips through PACZ. Yes, there are bugs, but you're in the jungle so it is totally to be expected. It... More

We stayed in the cabana furthest from the main office. The grounds are nice and the cabin looked good but I immediately noticed the shower floor was quite grimy. 20 minutes later we saw our first giant cockroach. Then we started noticing dozens of tiny flies on the floor and bedspread. I looked more carefully and saw there were piles... More

The rooms were not very clean or comfortable They didn't clean our room once out of the 3 nights stay. I was worried to request it incase there was a charge. Mike wanted to charge us 80 us dollars to borrow tubes to go down the river, he said we'd need a guide, where the hotel next store gave their... More

BevBelize, Owner at Cohune Palms River Cabanas, responded to this review

Here are some points about this review that definitely need to be clarified. First, the cabanas are supposed to be cleaned every day. As a business, we have learned a lot from other hotels that are environmentally conscious and have elected not to automatically wash every towel and sheet every night - unless requested. We ask that visitors throw the... More

We (myself, my boyfriend, and his mother) spent 5 nights at the end of Feb 2012 at Cohune Palms and had such a great time there. I was a little worried after reading reviews about "shady management" but my fears were totally unfounded. Mike and everyone else is what made our stay there so great. I can't say enough about...

We only stayed the one night, initially we thought we were quoted the price in Quetzals and thought it was a tad high. Shocked later to learn it was US$

When I travel, I look for places that are unique to the environment, locally owned/operated, in a beautiful rural setting, and not too expensive. Cohune Palms met all these requirements and exceeded my expectations. I should have posted a while ago, but feel a responsibility now in response to some of the recent posts. I honestly feel, with all respect,... More
