We stayed at Chaa Creek a couple of weeks ago and loved the lodge, the location, the pool, the food, and the amazing and caring staff. The owners are clearly invested both in the community and in their employees and it shows. It was very hot while we were there, but spent the hottest time in caves of day expeditions...

Each year we have stayed longer and brought more family to share the experience. We love the location in the jungle, the accommodations are outstanding, but it really is the staff who make us feel like family. From having breakfast with Rose, Jessica and Alica, going for a horseback ride with Teddy, walking the ruins with Robert and a jungle...

Visited on April 20-24, 2015 and were very pleased. The lodge is quite remote and meals are basically available only at the restaurant on site. The meals were excellent as was the service in the restaurant. The rooms were by far the best of the 3 sites we visited in Belize and were exceptional. We had a room with the...

My family and I stayed at Chaa Creek in March 2015. First of all, the property is beautiful and surrounded by pristine jungle. At night you can hear some howler monkeys sometimes. We stayed for four nights after a week on Ambergris Caye, and I recommend that type of itinerary for any traveller. Relaxing on the beach and then heading...
