Lamanai Riverside Retreat is a nice neatly keep place to camp ($15us) or rent a room by the river that is close to banks and shopping. There is electricity and Wi-Fi at the river. Bathrooms and showers are around back of the restaurant. Nice place but too expensive for my budget, so I only stayed one night. But I do... More

This is good choice if you want to spend a night in Orange Walk. Restaurant and rooms are located just on the river bank. Owener was very helpful and arranged for us boat trip to Lamanai. Room was average

I had booked one night in this place one month before my trip. At the last minute I decided to add another night so I sent them an email to see if they had the space to extend my stay by one night. Instead, they wrote back to say that they were closed. Some flooding apparently. Ok, I can understand... More

Staff were nice enough, food was not that good, room desperately need to be refurbished! In the shower we were getting electric shocks as the shower head is attached to a wall plug that gets wet!! We had a cockroach in the room, was not really comfortable here, but if you want cheap, there it is!

I enjoyed my stay here. The food was delicious, the family kind and helpful, and the other people I met who were staying here added to my experience. The bathroom was dated, but functional. I was just looking for a comfortable, bug-less bed. I was a female traveling alone. I enjoyed the jungle tour and the delicious stewed chicken that... More

We dined here at the recommendation of our guide to Lamanai. We had the option of dining indoors or outside... if you are WITHOUT bug spray I would definitely recommend sitting indoors. There was a happy hour drink menu, but the restaurant was out of a lot of liquers so there really wasn't much of a selection. My pork that... More

If you travel to Orange Walk, you must have dinner and a drink here. The view of the river was breath taking. Lance Pelayo, the owner, came over to make sure that everything was to our liking. It definitely was. The food was delicious. Next time, we'll stay here too. Very quiet and peaceful.

We didn't stay here but did come to the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was great too!! The server was very concerned we avoid the mosquitoes by leaving the riverside seating area and come indoors. He was friendly and checked up on us reguarly.

I only stayed for one night as the room was a little above my budget at $80/ night. That being said I think this is excellent value for someone traveling on a slightly higher budget, or couples. Rooms were nice and tidy. Ac if you want it, tv, private bath (but my shower was prone to spray toward the electrical... More

Can't believe it. I wish I found this place earlier. I am bird watching from the bar right now. Rooms are just what you need for the place. Some ants, cold shower (heads up to the soft) but come on, it's a great deal, great staff, great bar, great birds. They really take care of you. I have stayed at... More
