The breakfast was freshly made we had banana bread that was cooked on site and lovely freshly squeezed lime juice. We also highly recommend the Belize Zoo night tour it was very hands...

Thank you Richard and Carol !! We happened upon this place due to a last minute decision to stop at the Belize Zoo and it was by far our favorite part of the trip. The Fosters couldn't be any nicer and the house itself is a beautiful place to stay. We could go on forever about how much we loved...

We had a great time at the Savannah Guest House. Richard and Carol are very nice, friendly and helpful and serve a delicious breakfast with tea, fresh fruits, eggs, coffee, banana bread, toast and marmelade. You can use the kitchen which offers all devices. You can also watch the movies of them there. The room is clean and very spacious...

My family and I stayed at Savanna Guest House for 2 nights and had an excellent time. Carol and Richard are excellent hosts and full of wonderful stories. Richard gave us a tour of the property and we got to feed the crocodiles and margay. Breakfast was simple with homemade banana bread, fruit and bread. Perfect way to start the...

What a fabulous place to stay. Richard Foster is a delight and I only wish we had stayed a few more nights. His stories are delightful to hear and his hospitality wonderful.

Richard was a terrific host, taking great measures to assure our peaceful stay and comfort. Quiet and tucked away (but right down the street from the Belize Zoo) one instantly is tuned in to the wildlife, especially in the morning when the birds come alive. The Fosters have lived in Belize since the 70s and can give you much insight...

I can't say enough about our one night stay at the Foster's! Richard was nice enough to fetch us from the Zoo (also worth a visit in case you were wondering) and immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable in the guest house. There was an intense rain storm about one hour after after our arrival that was such a...

All the five star reviews are correct. It is peaceful, quiet, and comfortable in every way. We started our trip there and it was the perfect choice. After a looong travel day, it was a short drive there and ideal for decompressing and relaxing. Richard is a terrific host, the rooms are beautiful hardwoods, and the grounds are a natural...

What an incredible place...we booked it because it was close to the zoo and was so well rated. We weren't crazy about staying in Belize City on our last night, so this house was perfect for our needs. Little did we know what a gem this place is, and how wonderful and interesting our host Richard would be. He picked...

We are in the Pine Savanna with very nice rustic facilities, with nature walks and close to the zoo. There is a river nearby to go swimming and tubing. Birds are abundant in the morning.
