I Stayed here two wonderful nights but wish it could have been more. This part of Belize is incredible but under explored which makes it the perfect place to really get away from all the tourist traps and experience the "real" Belize. But don't think that means you have to rough it. The Lodge at Big Falls offers five star accommodations and cuisine. The rooms are spacious and even have a kitchen if you feel like going to a local market and trying your hand at using some new ingredients and spices. They are also clean and spotless and incredibly well maintained. There is free Wi-Fi available in the lobby/dining area but if you stay in the room called Mot Mot (which is the closest to said lobby) you can get the internets in your room!
The grounds are fantastic and home to many birds. You will be serenaded with their incredible call every morning. If you are even slightly into birding you can even take an early morning bird walk on the property with a local guide (Steve I believe) and see several dozen species all only feet from your front door.
The food is also wonderful with hearty, flavorful breakfasts (all you can eat) and exciting, exotic, delicious dinners. They don't skimp on the portions either.
The owners were wonderful and accommodating and have done a great job of hiring excellent staff.
If going to Belize you owe it to yourself to stay here and while the price may seem a bit high it is completely worth it.
