We spend our honeymoon between Ambergris Caye (Matachica) and San Ignacio (Blancaneaux Lodge). My pros and cons are below.
- Absolutely beautiful grounds.
- Fantastic guided tours. I mean incredible. Both to the ruins and to ATM.
- The indoor and the outdoor showers in the deluxe room are amazing.
- Great service and staff.
- Great drinks at the bar.
- The food in both the Italian restaurant and in the Guatemalan restaurant was below average.
- Our spa experience was very weak. The man who did my massage had the roughest hands I've ever felt. It's like he was wearing gloves made out of dead skin - gross.
- The music in the spa and restaurant caters to an 85 year old crowd. Its really horrible.
- It's rare to find anyone at the resort under 50.
- Our deluxe room had so little light that it was hard to get dressed in the morning. The rooms could use a little work actually. Not very romantic.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the early 1980s, Francis Ford Coppola visited Belize, immediately fell in love with the location, and purchased the abandoned Blancaneaux Lodge. For more than a decade the resort was used as a family retreat before Francis opened his tropical paradise to the public in 1993. Tucked away in a pocket of the Maya Mountains, Blancaneaux Lodge is a 20-room luxury resort where waterfalls tumble into turquoise pools above the jungle canopy. Its remote mountain setting makes it a perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. ... more less
