Cotton Tree Lodge, an oasis from the madness! I completely expected Mowgli and his friends Baheera and Baloo to show up at any time. This very eco-friendly resort is assimilated into the jungle beneath a huge Cotton Tree, thus the name...they grow most of their own food, they're on solar power, they have a grey-water system that feeds the gardens,...

This eco lodge is off the radar in Punta Gorda Belize. The experience is relaxing and re-vitalizing with tons of stuff to do or just relax in a hammock and read. We took several tours, exploring water caves and a chocolate farm, as well as kayaked up and down the river and swam to our hearts content. The river, being... More

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

Honestly the best place I have ever stayed. I have traveled a ton in my years and never have I had such a great experience! Fresh, truly organic food that is prepared without a fear of allergies. The staff is extremely friendly and trustworthy which is hard to find in certain countries. Beautiful scenery and lot of activities that can... More
