It's been one year to the day that I left Blancaneaux Lodge. And not a moment goes by I don't think about my time there. The property is amazing, the rooms perfect. The food wonderful. We even named our dog after the pancakes there. But what makes this hotel truly exceptional is the people. Their passion for the hotel is... More

We just got back from Blancaneaux where we stayed on the first three days of a week-long trip to Belize. Our family was looking to get away to something different...and we were not disappointed. The service and staff were simply 5-star. I'll apologize in advance for forgetting anyone, but the work Geronimo, Diego, Virgilio, Alex, Jorge, Rina, James, Penny, Abby... More

Visited in 2005 -This review is very late as my wife and I went here almost ten years ago. HOWEVER I did want to post that this still holds up (along with the turtle inn - their sister hotel) as one of the top two hotels/experiences we have ever had - even ten years on. They coordinated everything, and the... More

Just returned from 9 days in Belize. We spent 3 nights at Blancaneaux and 5 nights in San Pedro. Blancaneaux is a very special place. I've travelled all over the world and Blancaneux is probably one of the nicest places I've stayed at. A few of the highlights: - You feel like a guest in someone's house and not in... More

For our honeymoon, my husband and I wanted to travel somewhere that was out of the country, relatively inexpensive (compared to Europe and other popular honeymoon destinations like Fiji), safe, and provided the opportunity to be adventurous. Belize was the answer! We booked a honeymoon package with the Coppola resorts, Blancaneaux Lodge and Turtle Inn, which provided us with incredible... More

My husband and I were recommended to this property by another couple that honeymooned there. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Blancaneaux Lodge and their team and amenities. We flew into Belize City and had ground transfer (2.5 hours) to the property where we then spent six nights before moving to another district in Belize. To cover all bases... More

So this is a tough review of what could have been a great hotel in a great location. First the good stuff. The location is remote for sure so if you want luxury in a remote "Eco" tourist environment, this is probably the right place for you. The lodges are very creatively designed and the thatch roofs, hammocks on the... More

We started our 6 day Belize honeymoon spending 3 nights here and it was perfect! Staff and guides were great. Food was good. Very private (though property was not full when we were there). We loved hiking to the falls and for the first 45 minutes were there by ourselves and then one other couple happened a long. We took... More

Starting at the age of four, each of my kids gets to choose any destination in the world for a one-on-one trip with me. This year, based on beaches and potential animal sightings, my 4-year-old chose Belize. I chose where we stayed, including Blancaneaux Lodge and Turtle Inn. We loved our three days at Blancaneaux Lodge. The food was excellent,... More

We had been to other Francis Ford Coppola resorts and had always wanted to try Blancaneaux. It was such an amazing experience for our entire family. Set up high in the remote area of a mountain pine ridge reserve in Belize. A 2 1/2 hour ride from the airport but worth the long bumpy trip. As you enter the resort,... More
