“Wish we could have stayed longer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

We stayed here for one night in February and wish we had time to stay longer. The accomodation is in an incredible location, very peaceful, with beautiful views over the jungle. The cabins are very spacious and clean with large glass fronts again providing views out over the estate. Mike and Jenny (originally from Yorkshire - and still haven't lost their accents!) were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they provided a wealth of information about local sites, travel directions and lunchstops. Dinner in the evening was delicious and plentiful and very surprising to be served on china and crystal! Plenty of birdlife around including a fantastic "Parrot fly-by" on the evening. All in all highly recommended!

Gumbo Limbo is a beautiful, friendly, small, quiet, clean place to stay… comfort in the Jungle! The rooms are huge, clean, and beautifully built, overlooking the pool and surrounding jungle. The owners, Mike and Jenny, were extremely friendly and helpful! They planned all our excursions for us, had lovely meals ready each day (ask for the pineapple upside down cake), and genuinely cared about ensuring our trip was everything we wanted it to be! We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Gumbo Limbo and highly recommend it!

Breathtakingly beautiful! I arrived a stranger...& left..... hugging Jenny and Mike as family. Eme and Cris prepared delectable meals, a mouth watering sensation every evening served elegantly on the lanai on white tablecloths with crystal & china settings. Pots of tea & fresh fruit every morning! My spacious cabana was immaculate. The pool was clean and so very refreshing after warm days of touring. Every wish, need, & desire was more than met. Jenny & Mike are my family in Belize. They allowed me to fall in love with Belize and have encouraged me to travel even farther abroad as they shared wonderful stories of their travels! They will be my friends for life and my choice of residence when visiting Belize in the future. Jenny & Mike....I love you two! Big hugs!

Room Tip: The cabanas are quite private.

We have had a wonderful stay in spacious castinas. The food is always amazing and the people friendly and personable. Comfort is in the details and Mike and Jen have the details covered. It is quiet with views of the mountains. The resort is off the grid with wind, solar, and backup gen. the local birds abound and the grounds a impeccable. Thanks for always taking care of us!

Gumbo Limbo Village Resort is one of the best resorts in the Cayo district! The rooms are very nice, clean, the service is great, food is delicious and appropriately priced, and the family who runs the resort is extremely friendly. This place is more centrally located to most of the tourist attractions near San Ignacio than the actual town itself. The owners are very honest and reasonable about arranging transportation or driving you themselves if you’re booking a tour for horseback riding, caving, zip-lining, or visiting a Mayan temple. It is also way more affordable than other similar resorts, relaxing, and in a beautiful jungle setting. I would highly recommend this resort to any traveler!!!

For starters, Jenny, Mike, Steve, Joyce, Megan, and crew were so warm and welcoming we have to go back just to visit them! The cabanas were beautiful, clean and comfortable, we only wish we had had more time to just hang out. Our days were packed with wonderful tours. We spent 4 wonderful nights at the Gumbolimbo and enjoyed the quality of the food, breakfasts and dinners, just lovely! Service was impeccable, conversation and ambiance top notch! They shared wonderful stories and local advice. I am saving my pennies to go back for my 50th birthday! Can't think of a more wonderful bunch to celebrate with!

My partner and I travelled to the Cayo district in May 2010 to explore the area and were pleasantly surprised to find the Gumbo Limbo Village Resort which is a beautiful oasis in the midst of the Jungle.
The owners Mike, Jenny, Steve, Joyce & Megan have created an absolutely wonderful resort Village which is definitely 4 star quality at 3 star prices. The resort has 4 Cabanas each housing 2 or 1 double bed with quality fittings and furnishings. The swimming pool is a nice touch and does seem to consume both Mike and Steve's time ensuring it is clean and well maintained, as this is a nice area to relax after visiting both Santa Elena and San Ignacio towns.
I would recommend a visit even though it is a little hidden on the top of a hill, but it will be well worth it as the food, beer, rum, and the atmosphere are all fantastic.
