What a strange place in the middle of nowhere! As resorts on hopkins beach were fully booked we had to choose somewhere close by instead.. But.. We were the only guests in what seemed a scene from Texas chainsaw.. It was desolate and eery. The rooms were clean, but the bathroom was terrible - plastic fittings and the 'shower' was... More

My husband and I were booked into the River House Lodge for one week and couldn't take the first night. The shower was plugged so my husband had to stand ankle deep in dirty water. I opened the drawer of the dresser and three drawers came out at the same time and the whole thing fell apart leaving no where... More

12 of us who live in Belize (Ambergris Caye) stayed the night at the River House Lodge before and after our week-long stay at the Glover's Atoll offshore Belize. The staff was very friendly and accommodating -- providing excellent dinners and breakfasts, transport to and from the nearby boat dock where the Glover's boat was moored, and information about the...

My 20-year old son and I stayed at the River House Lodge for two nights and left wishing we would have reserved more time for this part of our trip in Belize. Kara and everybody else was so friendly, and it had a great laid-back atomosphere. We went out fishing with their kayaks the first afternoon, then enjoyed the indoor... More

We traveled to the area end of February beginning of June. Weather as great. Our time here was so relaxing. We had the place to ourselves, and the couple that manages full attention. They made us feel right at home. Lots of healthy laughs. Food was good. Clean, comfortable, Quiet! away from the hustle bustle. Learning life on the river... More

Didn't really know what to expect...but once we arrived we loved it. My wife and I stayed in a kitchenette while my daughter and grandson stayed below us. With so much to see and do we were played out and in bed by 8 PM. We had the Lodge serve us breakfast and suppers with a Belizean flare. Orlanda and... More

Stayed in a kichenette unit. Well stocked, clean and comfortable. The inn keeper was extremely helpful and friendly. Beds were comfortable and the AC was great.

The caretakers were very nice and kind to us. The place was very clean...albeit completely sterile. We felt like we were sleeping in a concrete bunker....or just a Holiday Inn along some random American highway. Then, there were the bugs. All night we were bitten by something, continuously. We closed the windows (they had bug screens), turned on the aircon... More

Admittedly, there are insects in Sittee River, especially in the rainy season we are experiencing now. There are sandflies and mosquitos, as there are in many jungle areas in Belize, but we have never had guests have an issue with insects inside the rooms such as this before. We do our best to keep insects out of the rooms with... More

This lodge is situated on the Sittee River, convenient walking distance to Hopkins Village, and the town of Sittee River. It has several kitchenette units, with a small microwave, coffee maker, a little gas stove, fridge, private bath and two double beds. The cost was $69 plus tax which was quite reasonable. We paid $5 each for breakfast on the... More

Thanks so much for your positive comments about River House Lodge. As the new managers, we take your information very seriously and appreciate the feedback.
