WOW!!! First of all we got the a la carte deal. Rooms were super cheap but AMAZING! We stayed in cabana 4 near the Botanical garden. Unfortunately no flowers were in bloom in July (orchids) but it was really fun to walk around and explore nonetheless. The staff - EVERYONE was genuinely happy. The whole staff was great. I wish...

PROPERTY’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2016

Last Christmas holiday was our first trip to Belize. Not really knowing where to go or what to do, I did a little research. This eventually led me to an exchange of information with the fine folks at Cave's Branch. First of all, they were exceptionally helpful in arranging our ENTIRE visit, not just the portion we stayed at Cave's... More

Caves Branch is an ideal Jungle retreat with lots of day and night time adventures for young and old. There is also a beautiful botanical garden onsite to explore. They serve three excellent meals a day but dinner is the big deal. Everyone gathers at dinner time to share their days adventure stories as well as a lavish three course... More

Our fifteen year old grand son chose the Tree House; a natural choice for an adventurous 15 year old. We each spent our first hours taking photos of the cool layout and amenities of our one-level charmer. Do not be fooled by the "family style" eating label. Probably the best thing for our grand son was the seating arrangement of... More
