We stopped here when we were on an excursion for our cruise that was docked at nearby Harvest Caye. It was a beautiful place to explore. The trails, the wildlife, and the plant life was all perfectly tropical and fun to see.

What a great place to stay, it is a nature resort and the river is right down the road. Huts were very comfortable and the barracks were also nice to stay in as well. Bathrooms were spacious and had everything you needed. Great price for a comfortable place to sleep.

This is the friendliest place we ever stayed! Suff is just like family. We loved the cabins, the garden, the trails. And we loved being here at the same time as some young peoples study groups. It made us feel like on a campus. Also because everybody has to pick up his breakfast on his own and clean after himself. Like on a camping side. This fitted well with our concept of travelling in Belize We loved the philosophy of this place. We would love to come back.

The rooms in the main building are cheap, but not nice. They are right beside the library and during our stay people were working in the library all day. Because the walls of these rooms are very thin you don't have any privacy. The toilets and (cold) showers are outside this building. I don't think these rooms are good value for money. The cabins are better value for money and you have a nice view from the veranda. These have a private bathroom. We made a canoe trip on the river, which we didn't like. Only water was provided, no snacks. Our guide didn't have knowlegde about the vegetation and animals. The cost of more than 60 USD is too high for a simple 2 hour canoe trip. We had some issues during our stay and the staff was not willing to solve these. We dindn't have the feeling we were welcome/. So just 3 stars for a nice place. With lower prices for the excursions and more friendly staff, I would have given 4 or even 5 stars.

Stayed at Monkey Bay for just one night in neat thatched roof cabins after picking us up from the airport. Clean and well kept, though minimalist. The property is set up for school tours and eco-tours, so there are also dormitory style rooms, though we didn't see what those look like inside. All visitors eat together in camp style chow hall - food is very good and plentiful and the staff is friendly. You bus your own dishes, cleaning plates etc. so it's a very summer camp kind of feel, which was fun. Justin and Chester drove the Monkey Bay bus (an actual school bus) to Coxcomb Basin Jaguar Preserve where they took us tubing down the river. They were knowledgeable of the area, history and jungle plants which was nice, though the tubing was shorter than expected. All in all, a very good stay!
