The Lodge and grounds are lovely, and the room was nice. However, it was overpriced for what it was. We had dinner at the Lodge - a hefty $40US/person - which left us feeling ripped off. The food was mediocre and bland and WAY OVERPRICED!! A plate with dry pasta, vegetables and some shrimp on top does not equal $40US.... More

The Lodge at Big Falls is a beautiful, serene place to recharge, eat great food, swim, bird watch, agouti watch, chat with other guests, tube around the property on the river, watch fireflies and then fall asleep to the sound of cicadas and geckos. If you get tired of the above, you can visit Mayan ruins, learn how to make... More

The Lodge at Big Falls s beautiful and serene. There is a small river circling the venue and trees, flowers, and birds are prolific. The cottages are clean, well-maintained and comfortable in an idyllic setting. The proprietors are friendly and knowledgeable about the area and its attractions. We loved every minute that we were there. We were there over Thanksgiving... More

We spent 3 nights in a lovely "cabana" at this lodge which is located about 30 minutes from Punta Gorda, but is light years from the noise and crowds of the town. The grounds are beautifully kept, and the only noise you hear is the chirping of the birds and the rush of the nearby river. Everyone who works there... More

I stayed with friends at this lodge for one night after kayaking the Moho River. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. My room had a lovely view of the river and was surrounded by beautiful lawn and large trees.The common areas are great, especially the front porch and the swimming pool. Our dinner was excellent, an Indian inspired curry... More

After a week of touring around Guatemala we stayed at the Lodge for 4 nights to relax and stop living out of a suitcase. Everything was excellent from the well maintained grounds, the large room, the tasty food, good choice of excursions, friendly owner and finally the brilliant staff. We came away with memories - walking into the village and... More

I'd never been to Belize before and I cannot imagine a better way to get acquainted with the country and the people. Rob and the staff at The Lodge were warm and welcoming and Steven our guide for the week was friendly and extremely informative. We happened to be at the lodge during a week that 9 folks in two...

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
