Absolutely beautiful, relaxing, and peaceful experience. But..guess what - you are in the middle of a rainforest jungle, so to think that you will not be driving down un-paved roads or get bitten by a few insects is an unrealistic expectation. From the moment you walk on to the lodge, the staff at Cotton Tree are there to greet you... More

Fantastic...but read this fully..to prepare for a great adventure. First: let me remind you this is in a jungle... this is not for people who don't appreciate getting away from city life. There will be Bugs! Humidity, Mud. Rain forest is not without rain!!! . WIFI only works in the lodge near the desk area. If you want to be... More

We had our end-of-year retreat at cotton tree lodge and our whole staff was able to work as well as enjoy the wild jungle in the comfortable facilities of the lodge. It was a privilege to have our delicious meals served on time, to go to sleep with the sounds of the howler monkeys and to wake up sorrounded by... More

The biting insects are the worst!! I've been back home for two weeks and I'm still itching and wanting to scratch my skin off!! My daughters and I will have scars on our legs from the flea bites (we tried every kind of repellant, including deet). We stayed 4 nights, and unfortunately, would have been very happy to leave after... More

All the Staff at Cotton Tree Lodge work to their very best to provide an authentic and comfortable experience in this pristine jungle environment. The Jungle Experience...can some days include a few Insect bites but most of the time it is a minor consideration for our guests. Our restaurant menu offers fresh farm to table ingredients and includes a mix... More

Just returned from a Guatemala/Belize group tour with 2 nights at the Cotton Tree Lodge, which brought back memories of my childhood summer camp. It's the rainy season and everything is pretty damp, but still no mosquitoes! The staff is very attentive and personable. They serve delicious, healthy food and great drinks, and have a fantastic program of activities. We... More

Cotton Tree Lodge demonstrates how a small vacation resort can be environmentally friendly and very comfortable. We visited for a week and wished it were longer. The clean, airy cabanas where we stayed were built with local woods and thatch and the delicious meals were well-prepared from locally raised produce. We totally relaxed and had fun even while we were... More

We loved our stay at Cotton Tree Lodge. The staff was super friendly & helpful making our time there beyond memorable. We enjoyed meeting other guests as well, the main lodge and family style seating at dinner gave the intimate community feel you would never get from a hotel. There was plenty to keep us busy during our stay, even... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Cotton Tree Lodge. We're very glad that you enjoyed your stay! Our Jah Wah Hill Hike is a challenging tour, but as you mentioned, it is rewarded with the most incredible views over the country of Belize and also Guatemala. Best Wishes, Management More

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
