On a whim for Valentines day weekend, we recently purchased a 3-night stay via Groupon for the Maruba Resort Jungle Spa. We were enticed by the exciting excursion options offered as well as excellent reviews of food and pampering. Overall, we had a wonderful combination of adventure and relaxation on this trip. After reading multiple reviews, we ultimately decided to... More

I was interested in visiting Belize for the first time and came across this resort. I normally stay in hotel chains, but decided to try out something new. I am so glad that I did. Maruba Resort Jungle Spa provides the amenities and services of high end hoteliers, in the most unconventional place - a jungle! I was able to... More

If you are looking to relax and decompress far away from it all, this is the place. If you are looking for touristy atrractions you won't find them here. Deep in the Belize jungle is a resort that is both earthy and elegant. With just a handful of private bungalows decorated with colorful fabrics with a Moroccan flavor, you can... More

This is a hard review to write because the staff is wonderful, but the resort is in a bit of disrepair. Insects and rodents were in our room, which I expected the insects being in the middle of the jungle, but not the rodents. There was a smell to the water which was disconcerting. The beds were uncomfortable- many layers... More

Getting the biggest most expensive room is not always the most fitting. The jungle loft is 1600 square feet 2 bedrooms 3 baths and private pool and hot tub. More for family or group of friends. The staff at Maruba consistently check to make sure guest are comfortable and taken care of and will suggest another suite that may be... More

We booked Maruba for 2 nights through skyauction.com. We went to Maruba Jungle Resort with the prepaid voucher. While checking out, we noticed a charge of 93 Belizean dollars service fee. Nick explained to us that fee is for credit cards, bank and government fee. We were not told about service fee before we checked in to the hotel. Nick... More

Maruba hides nothing on the billing and explains all the charges every time a guest is billed. Several travel sites offer cheapest inclusive rooms at hotels such as the one mentioned this review. The above AUCTION travel site charges its clients tax and service charge and keeps it. Hotel tax and service charge are regulated by the Belize Tourism Board... More

My wife and I stayed here in August and had a great experience. This is a hidden treasure, off the beaten path, but near some some great jungle destinations. We both enjoyed the spa experience, while also enjoying side trips to nearby Lamanai and a River boat tour. The property is lovingly cared for. There are countless cozy sitting areas... More

Most of us think of sand and beaches when we plan a getaway but for this vacation we wanted a break from the norm. We spent four nights at Maruba and absolutely loved it! You will be treated so kindly you will feel right at home. The owners and staff are wonderful. There are several outings you can plan off... More

Belize is such a magical place. Great people and culture. My wife and I did our 10th Anniversary there, 4 days in the jungle, 4 days at the beach. The highlight of our trip was the time at Maruba. You will not be disappointed. It is very different, as you would expect with a 'jungle' resort. A small number of... More

We just spent 6 Nights at Maruba and we loved it hands down, We can say we had a great time and relaxed not pushy to sell you tours if you want to just lay at the pool fine and relax. The Owners are on site and are very much involved from the start to finish, the staff are very... More

Because we go the Belize every year, my husband decided to surf the web to see if he could find something different to visit while my uncle and aunt were still working (just before the Easter break). He came across Maruba. He mentioned it several times before I decided to look it up. We booked our first two days there.... More
