We had an absolutely wonderful experience at The Lodge at Big Falls, upon arrival we felt right at home! We came to the Big Falls area of Toledo to get away from the hub-bub of Placencia over Independence weekend (Sept 21) & what a relaxing & perfect weekend we had! The rooms are clean & accommodating, the staff & owner... More

So I have to preface this review by saying that this was literally the only place I went in Belize, with one exception. Before I left on my trip I hurt my neck. I thought it would get better through my natural resilience, but alas it did not (I am older than I thought apparently). I actually spent the entire... More

You can expect many things when travelling in Central America, but often you’ll have to lower them when it comes to where you’re staying, unless of course you’re staying in the capitals at the really big hotels. I always like to get a little further afield than that, and my last visit was to the Toledo District in the south... More

Without a doubt, the most luxurious property we stayed in 10 days in Belize. Relaxing environment, felt as if we'd stumbled out of the jungle into Paradise. Great hot showers, and comfy bedding. Pride in ownership, hospitality and commitment to service show up in the attention to detail throughout. Which made two incidents all the more disturbing: Our party of... More

Thank you for your review, beardiegal. Allow me respond to your two criticisms. Although the visit is now nine months in the past the evening was memorable because it was Christmas Eve and we served a three-course meal including a main course of turkey with all the trimmings and you are correct in saying our portions are generous. They always... More

Jess and I stayed for 5 nights at the lodge and had a wonderful time. The service was fantastic, the food was fresh & delicious, and our every need was met quickly and with a smile. Rob was an excellent host and Steve was an amazing tour guide. He absolutely made the trip for us. So happy to have visited!

I had the pleasure of staying here during the off season for two nights. This is not my first experience with an Eco lodge and I think Rob and the rest of the staff do a fabulous job. They were very accommodating and flexible both to my schedule and the weather. They have lots of activities to do no mater... More

Finally visited The Lodge at Big Falls after years of travel plans being thwarted by work commitments. Delighted that I finally made it to Rob and Marta's fantastically relaxed forest hideaway. Toledo is a fascinating region and the guides take great pains to introduce one to the community, culture and stunning natural charm of the district but after a couple... More

We were booked here by Audley travel. Arrived by air. Met by Estevan for transport to LABF. Greeted by Marta with welcome drink and short tour. Taken to one of several private lodges on the river with full unlimited electric and water. Three wonderful days to relax, experience wonderful internationally inspired cuisine, swim (both pool and river available), and visit... More

Friends and I stopped in at The Lodge at Big Falls more or less by accident in February this year. We were riding dirt bikes across Belize and having a fantastic trip but by the time we got down near Punta Gorda we'd had our fill of $30/night hostels and, unfortunately, a particularly bad experience the night before with bedbugs...

During our recent visit to the Toledo District of Belize my husband and I had the good fortune to stay at the Lodge at Big Falls for a few days. We thoroughly enjoyed the few days that we got out of town and stayed in this pristine rainforest/Mayan region at the Lodge, with Marta and Rob Hiron. They have done... More
