My Wife and I travel often, so we are open minded but always have high expectations. When we stayed at Maruba resort our expectations were blown away. Travelers often say it’s the people you are with that make a trip great. Maruba’s staff made every excursion wonderful, from horseback riding around the jungle of Marubas' estate to snorkeling in Belizes'... More

The service was amazing. Unusual hotel in the jungle. Excellent excursions. The staff for excursions from hotel and very organized. Owners live on site. Only 18 rooms. The meals were awesome. Excellent chef.

Just got back form Maruba Jungle Resort, spent 4 nights there. Overall not a bad experience by any means but be aware what you are getting into. If you are active and are looking for 4.5 4 star getaway, this is probably not the place for you. As mentioned in other reviews, the resort is way past its prime, the... More

Maruba has been around for more then 25 years continually evolving. Through that time it has developed a unique character. The beds a fuffly pillows you sink into, there are no white rooms but rather metalic surrounds accented with rich fabrics collected from around the world. The prices at the resort reflect the the cost of providing quaility services. It... More

This was a tough one to review. Out of the ordinary vacation spot. I was there with my wife and three kids. We wanted something "different". We certainly got that here. You are picked up at the airport and taken on a very bumpy ride on the way to the resort. It is initially very off putting but that feeling... More

To address the recent reviews. The last 4 months Belize recieved twice the average normal rainfall. Roads washed out, crops destroyed, infustructure damaged and mosquitoes. Regardless we and the staff do everything possible to make your stay @ maruba an experence to remember. More

Short version: I booked as a Groupon and stayed 2 nights from 11/23 to 11/25. I only purchased the deal because the Reservations Rep listed on the Groupon contact info, Linda Smith (based out of Houston), told me that it would be no problem transferring me directly from San Pedro. I even have two email confirmations from her where she... More

I just returned from 5 nights at Maruba and really enjoyed my stay. When I first arrived, Melanie showed me to my room and I realized it had only a double bed. As I am six feet tall, this was going to make sleeping difficult. I don't know how she did it, because the place was pretty full, but Melanie... More

Yes! I have been Junglized. It's wonderful to arrive at a place that is so unique – it not only looks, but feels peaceful and full of serenity – the harmonious integration of nature and rustic design is amazing. I highly recommend for folks who want to relax and enjoy all that Maruba has to offer. From the moment we... More

I stayed at the resort with a girlfriend the weekend of October 4. Although it was named jungle spa, I did not realize we would actually be in the jungle. It was amazing to stay in the middle of the jungle. Despite not being an outdoorsy type of girl, this was a luxurious jungle experience. It was nice to hear... More

We came to Maruba by chance because our Roatan trip had to be canceled. This trip was the second leg of our honeymoon in Belize and we enjoyed every minute of it. We arrived in Belize city during the rainy season no knowing if the rain will damage our plans, and we were meet by a Maruba representative who was... More

We're a little late on the review (6+ months) but I felt compelled to write a review because we had such a great time. My wife and I stayed at Maruba in November 2012 and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Not fully know what to expect our stay, the grounds, the staff and excursions surpassed our expectations. We would highly recommend... More
