“Great Stay @ Gumbo limbo Village Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2010

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.

Thanks to the Gumbo Limbo Village Resort, our vacation in Belize was perfect. Our travel arrangements were changed last minute to Gumbo Limbo, and I am so glad that it was. The rooms were immaculate, the service was top notch and the food was excellent. We could not have found a better place.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2009

Belize is a poor country with much poverty amidst beautiful jungle scenery. Finding the right resort can be a challenge, at best. Gumbo Limbo Village Resort is a treasure of rest for adventerous souls exploring the Mayan history of western Belize. Peacefully perched atop a jungle mountain, the Gumbo enjoys stunning sunrise views of the valley below, comfortable afternoon breezes and restful nights. The owners have a created a comfortable haven of four cabana's around a pool and a central dining and gathering pavillion. The cabana's are spacious, clean and comfortable. An afternoon dip in the pool restores your calm after a day of exploring Belize's backroad sites. The evening breeze keeps the rooms cool and morning awakenings to the sound of jungle birds are inspiring. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with colorful native plants. Their breakfasts are just a little light, cold cereal and fresh fruit. They can pack a box lunch for your daily explorations. Dinners were excellent. Getting there is an adventure but worth it. The road in is two miles of rough, rocky road ending in a steep driveway. Renting a four wheel drive car with good ground clearance is highly reccomenended. On the drive in just slow down, enjoy the fifteen minutes of slow going over the rough road. When you arrive, it is worth the trip.
