Stayed here for 3 nights, about 45 minute drive from airport. Mick was very welcoming and provided everytthing we needed for a great stay. Comfortable cabana, very clean. Great food served in lovely dining room with other guests. Mick sorted us out for tours to Lamanai and a local birding guide for 2 walks. But there is excellent birding all round the lodge, just wander around the gardens for birds and howler monkeys. All the team were very helpful and friendly. Very relaxed atmosphere too. We had Cabana 4, made for a spectacular view in the morning over the lagoon.

We really enjoyed our stay at Crooked Tree Lodge and would stay there again if we return to Belize. We stayed in Cabin 5, which had two beds, its own bathroom, and plenty of room for my husband, son and I. It's quiet there and I slept very well despite being a light sleeper. There was a fan and a constant breeze from the lake that kept the place cool enough to be comfortable. The owners, Mic and Angie, prepared tasty meals and happily catered to us being vegetarians with some additional dietary restrictions. They also offered transfers from Belize City/airport to their lodge (and for less than the other transfers there I investigated). The birds on the lake are amazing, with multiple types of king fishers and herons and storks as well as spoonbills and others. There are also many flycatchers, warblers, etc. on the grounds. The lake was unseasonably low when we were there (end of March - usually a great time I think), which was too bad and meant we couldn't take a boat tour out, but we could still see the birds fine from land. The grounds are well kept and safe and the owners lovely hosts.

Our family enjoyed our stay at Crooked Tree. Mick served us a hearty breakfast and dinner and had great tips about things to do while dad went bird watching. Excellent diversity of birds in the area. We were glad we stayed here as some of the species my husband found, he only observed around the lodge! The cabanas were very charming and nicely decorated. Excellent wifi too, which was nice for those of us who still have to work while on vacation. It would be great if the windows had screens, as the mosquitos sought out our youngest kid with a vengence!

The proprietors are warm friendly people who are very helpful. The food is wonderful and Lu and Fred will try to get back as soon as we can. We learned a bit about bird watching from the other guests. We stayed 3 days and it wasn't enough. Can't recommend this place to highly. No glitz, no night life-just great relaxation.

We had high expectations leading up to our stay and we were not disappointed. The setting was lovely. Our cabin faced the lagoon and was very comfortable although screens would have been welcome. The main building had a comfortable living room and dining area. We enjoyed the tasty and affordable breakfasts and dinners. The owner was very helpful.Our bag failed to arrive on our connecting flight. While we were on a day trip, he called the airline customer service to confirm that the bag will be delivered. The lodge exceeded our expectations.

The main lodge which is right on the lagoon is lovely. Our cabana was set back in the trees was comfortable, clean and basic. One improvement would be a bath mat. The sunrises were beautiful. The variety of birds were amazing. Mick arranged a bird walk with Reuben who was very patient with us not very good birders. The food was filling, delicious and beautifully plated. Lots of vegetables and fruits. Mick, Angie and their 3 boys made our Crooked Tree experience truly memorable. Thanks!

My sisters and I shared one of the cabins at the Crooked Tree Lodge. Our visit was surpassed our expectations and we found it a great place to unwind before returning to the States. The food was fabulous, cooked and served by the family running the Lodge, a gourmet feast!! We took a few birding hikes guided by a local gentleman that seemed to be able to summon birds we wanted to see! We enjoyed walking to the small town and the Audubon Center, enjoying the scenery and the serenity of the area, watching the local birds. We would definitely return should the occasion arise.

What a great introduction to Belize! Dramatic location, a visual feast for birders and anyone who wants some calming time with nature. The cabana's were clean, quiet and just quaint enough without being primitive. The food was superb! Home cooking with a Caribbean flair! Great way to meet with the fellow guests and compare travelling experiences. Mick and Angie really know the area and can advise you of the best sights and what to avoid. Their in-house naturalist has a night nature walk that's not to be missed. All and all, the best part of my trip to Belize. I hope to be back!!!!

Crooked Tree Lodge is the place to be in Crooked Tree!!!! Stayed here for three nights a few years ago. Spent four nights here this time and it will be five or six nights when we return!!! The cabins are spacious, clean and comfortable. All are close to the lagoon and enjoy views and fresh air. The lodge space and dining room offers all that you might desire and more. The food is ample and delicious. Angie and Mick are as gracious and accommodating as one could ever desire. They make sure everyone is more than happy!!! The village of Crooked Tree is a pleasure to walk around.....everyone is smiling and has time to visit and share. If you want a break from it all, Crooked Tree is the spot to be......

My son,, granddaughter and I visited Crooked Tree for two nights. It was a lovely experience, from the quiet at night except for the natural sounds, to the delight of standing on the viewing platform, looking out over the lagoon and seeing no lights, to the birding tour early in the morning with Robert, where we saw more than 30 species and hundreds of individuals. The food was delicious and well served and the hospitality perfect. I’d go back in a heartbeat.
