“a little piece of heaven..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

The Sleeping Giant Lodge was amazing. From the moment we arrived, till we made our regretful departure, every moment was breathtaking. The staff that greet you when you arrive, do everything they can to make your stay worthwhile. From fresh cut flowers arranged beautifully on your bed to a helping hand on the rain forest path, they are always exceeding excellence to serve you.
It seems you could stay months there, experiencing something new and exciting every day. From the Mayan ruins to cave exploration, the sleeping giant staff take you step by step on every new adventure of your choice. With acres of rain forest, orchards, nature preserves, river and history to explore, the possibilities are endless.
After every exciting day, you get to spend your evenings, with free access to acres of a sculpted Eden. Pictures can not describe how awe inspiring it is. Your personal cabin is placed privately in your own little nook, overlooking the mountains and rain forest. Besides the exquisite beauty, the main lodge offers a native bartender, and beautiful dining room upstairs, overlooking the mountains, fully accommodated with fresh and delicious cuisine served to your table.
From educational to personal pursuits, the Sleeping Giant Lodge provides more than what you need. All you have to do is make it there, they take care of all the rest.

Year after year the Sleeping Giant Lodge has provided an incredible experience for my groups. I bring 20 - 30 people to Belize every Janaury and the lodge has always had the highest level of standards I can find in Belize. The accomodations are incredible, the staff is fantastic and will do everything possible to accomodate travelers needs and the activites are unbelieveable. Toucans, king vultures and hundreds of other tropical birds are visible from the 2nd & 3rd floor observation decks. Night hikes provide the opportunity to see kinkajos, ocelots and a host of other rainforest creatures.
After being out in the field all day getting hot and sweaty it's great to come back to a hot shower, cold drink and the AC.
Highly recommend the Sleeping Giant Lodge for individuals as well as group travel.

Room Tip: If you want to be close to the action stay in the garden view rooms. If you want more privacy ask f...

At first glance of the lodge you're immediately taken back by the stunning rain forest setting under the Sleeping Giant mountain. The enchantment doesn't stop there as the staff continues to pamper the guests through exquisite service and tasty meals. Each day your adventure tour planner sits down and discusses what you would like to do and makes it happens the following day. It was so nice to return from a long day's adventure in the jungle or Mayan temple visit and just chill in the very comfortable atmosphere. The owner, Dave, was a delight to talk with and the hostess superb.

Room Tip: The Spanish Casita #1 has a lovely little stream running by it.
