We stayed there for a couple nights. Really a great staff. The idea is to be a few miles off the beaten path in the jungle. in this case rural Belize. The setting is rather nice. Another part of it is to be really Green minded and Ecological. This attracts people like me who care about the environment and a... More

After spending a week on a catamaran on the Belize reefs we booked a week in the southern Belize jungle at Cotton Tree. We really did not know what to expect. We are somewhat elderly (I am 70 and my wife is 66.) so we were a little nervous. What a wonderful experience. We had a deluxe "cabin" right on... More

We are always happy to have TW guests come stay with us at Cotton Tree Lodge. The jungle is a good break after time out on the ocean, lush green plants, fresh water rivers, and a chance to reconnect with the earth. Mayan culture is the hallmark of our tours we offer....a real chance to meet locals and have an... More

This is our second trip to the Cotton Tree Lodge, and even to their surprised we again stayed in what we call the Howler Hut ( Jungle Hut) and it again proves to be an adventure. The lodge is still well maintained, staff friendly and food great. Our traveling pack(?) of monkeys still serenaded us at night although this time... More

Some guests really embrace the adventures , the Howler monkeys were "Howling" for joy at your return to the Jungle House...I know the staff felt this way about your return visit as well. More

Wow! My three adult children and I just got back from an exquisite week at Cotton Tree Lodge. It was such an awesome experience.... Just exactly what I had hoped for and more! We got the remote rainforest experience, with very comfortable lodging in a great cabana (with hammocks) and fantastic and plentiful food, and very charming and attentive staff!... More

We spent a week all inclusive at Cotton Tree, and all I can do is rave about the way we were treated. The staff was excellent, friendly, and hard working. I have a wheat intolerance, and my meals were always excellent, other guests with dietary concerns also were well cared for. Each day we had a choice of tours, whether... More

We stayed 4 nights (All incl) and we definitely could have stayed longer. The staff is absolutely amazing, the food was delicious, and of course the views breath taking. Not to forget the super cool tours, plenty to choose from :) Definitely the highlight of our trip!
