What an amazing place. After driving that long dirt road we weren't sure what to expect anymore but after getting there my boyfriend and I were blown away. The food was great and the service was excellent! Great staff. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend!

We just returned from 5 nights at the Cotton Tree Lodge and had a great time. It is a great place for families to unwind, unplug, decompress and just be. The lodge is off the beaten path... about 45 minutes from Punta Gorda and 7 miles down a bumpy dirt rode but that's what makes it awesome. I mean come... More

Great experience. Food is good and plentiful, you're not going hungry or loosing weight at this place. Staff is attentive, professional, and super friendly. Accomodations are comfortable and clean, just don't go around looking for spiders and such in the cabanas because you will find them, the sooner you come to terms with the insect population the sooner you can...

This was a great adventure--but an adventure with the welcome addition of comfort and knowledgeable people to show us where to have fun! We loved the healthy, well-tended jungle feel of Cotton Tree--it really does look like the pictures! The cabanas and grounds are beautiful, and the staff are wonderful. My husband and I stayed for a week, and were... More

Wonderful place to relax and just take in the beauty of Belize. This is a rustic get away and is worth the bump ride into the resort. The river is the perfect temperature to swim in, the cabins are clean and spacious and the Howler Monkeys and birds are always entertaining. The staff are very friendly and generous and the... More

My wife and I recently took a trip to the cotton tree, and I can't say enough about our visit. The staff was extremely friendly, the meals were delicious, and the tours were outstanding. I highly, highly recommend taking Eladdio's chocolate farm tour. This guy's is amazing! I see that a few reviews have panned cotton tree mostly due to... More

We took a group of 19 travelers ages 9 to 83 to Cotton Tree Lodge and experienced all that we hoped to on a community college study abroad experience. With so many activities for all ages, this was a trip that appealed to all members of our group. Granted, our group knew that we would be in the middle of... More

We arrived at Cotton tree and really felt as though we had found a gem off the beaten path! My husband and I were travelling with our 3 children ... an 18,15 and 11 year old as well as my mom.
