We were so glad that the Big Falls was recommended by Audley travel. We flew from Tikal via Belize in small planes and arrived at Punta Gorda to be met by Stephen who was our guide during the three night stay. At the Lodge we were warmly welcomed with a cool drink by Marta, and offered a snack lunch. Our... More

We only stayed for three nights (26/03/14 to 01/03/14) but it was three nights in heaven. The setting of the lodge is great, with the cabanas being on a peninsula, surrounded by the river, which is slowly meandering to the sea. We were greeted warmly by the staff and soon made to feel at home. Although the accommodation was classed... More

My wife and I stayed at the lodge for 4 nights last month and had a fantastic time. The lodge itself is beautifully positioned in the forest and has all the comforts you need - good food, very comfortable rooms, and friendly staff always on hand - the freshly brewed coffee with cinnamon buns was a real hit! Enjoying these... More

I've always wanted to stay in a thatched cottage but never imagined that the thatch would keep the cottage cool and fresh. Also loved the shower with its own private garden lush with birds of paradise. All the meals at the Lodge are prepared fresh from local ingredients and are excellent from perfectly ripe fruit to fresh baked breads and... More

Travelled to this area of the world with friends and thought we'd pop in for a night. Ended up staying for 3 it was so good. Friendly owners (thanks Marta & Rob) and staff. A great breakfast sets you up for a full day of tubing/swimming/lazying around in hammocks - it was hard! You would struggle to use the lodge... More

A friend and I stayed at the Lodge for 6 nights, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Rob and Marta, the owners, were so hospitable - they couldn't have been nicer! Steven, the guide on our tours, was very knowledgeable and helpful. The Lodge is a beautiful place to stay; we loved our cabana, with the large bathroom!! The... More

A wonderfully tranquil place to stay after a long journey and busy time beforehand. In totally unsploit surroundings and in complete contrast to the offerings of remote lodges we have stayed at in other parts of the world .The cabanas are well appointed and the comfort of the beds deserve a special mention. River tubing is often not possible for... More

My husband and I stayed there as the final destination in Belize and loved it. It offered the opportunity to experience local culture and a variety of activities about which Rob and Marta, the owners, are extremely knowledgable. If, unlike us, you were only able to visit one area of Belize this would be the one togo to. There are... More

We loved every minute of our time at the Lodge, from tubing down the river, to the great breakfasts and lovely rooms. Rob and Marta were helpful and knowledgeable, and great to talk to. We stopped for one night, and ended up staying three as we loved it so much. I don't think we could have made it through the... More

My wife and I stayed several days at this beautiful lodge and had the most wonderful time. Rob and Marta are great hosts, and the staff are charming. We swam, river-tubed, walked, cycled, zip-lined and yet somehow found the whole experience utterly relaxing. It's a great place to stay. We'd recommend it to anyone. Howard Davies
