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

Blancaneux: Our experience with Blancaneux started way before we even arrived - actually over six months before our arrival is when we started planning our ultimate Belizean honeymoon. I first read about Blancaneux in a travel book and was intrigued to continue doing more research online. Every article and review I read pointed to our staying here. I reached out... More

We spent 5 nights at Blancaneaux Lodge. It is actually situated in a pine reserve, not in a jungle, as the previous reviewers have described the setting. The nature around the lodge is peaceful, beautiful and wild. A lot of birds, who sing beautifully, big lizards, squrriles etc. We occupied the FF Coppola villa, with Juan as our attendant. The...

Our family of 5 spent 4 nights in the Frances Ford Coppola Villa at the end of March. Juan was our house attendant who just perfect, he made us feel right at home. The Villa was just fabulous ~ exotic and comfortable. The Espresso maker and private pool were nice touches, and we certainly enjoyed sitting in "France's chair" out... More

As of today we have not booked rooms and stayed but have had many lunches there while in the pine ridge. The food there is phenomenal!! The veggie panini is loaded, no exploding with fresh picked veggies from the garden ... yum!! Best sandwich in Cayo!! The staff is always helpful and sweet and once even pulled our truck out...

Our family of 4 spent 3 nights at Blancaneaux as part of a vacation package - 3 nights there and 4 nights at Turtle Inn. I highly recommend visiting both resorts if possible. Seeing both the jungle and the coast gives visitors a true taste of Belize. Blancaneaux is a great base for exploring Belize's mountain/jungle region. We visited the... More

We just got back from one of the most exotic vacation experiences of a lifetime from Blancaneaux Lodge where every detail was perfection. Ryan at the front desk welcomed us with our first taste of Jaguar Juice (house cocktail specialty made from the Craboo tree), and oriented us to the property. From the thatched roof cabanas with wrap around decks... More

This was my favorite vacation resort. I love nature and the "Swiss Family Robinson" type Villas were fantastic. It was very authentic and made of natural materials found in the forest. The food at the Lodge was good but the pizza was to die for. We had pizza a lot it was so good. A river ran right thru the... More

My husband and I have stayed at Blancaneaux 4 times and will be back for more. We went the first time while we were dating, again on our honeymoon, then with our small children, and back again for a couple's escape. It is truly a perfect place to unplug and enjoy the beauty of the Belizian forest. Each stay we... More

Just returned from a fantastic week. Service is impeccable and food tasty and fresh. Fruits and vegetables come from their own organic farm. We did the ATM cave tour which is full day of excitement. Knowledgeable guides and an exciting day through the cave. Accommodations are private, comfortable. All details covered right down to candles and a hot water bottle... More
