I can't speak highly enough about this place. We initially booked 5 nights but arrived 2 days early due to Hurricane Earl heading for the Cayes. Our first room was Motmot, a small cottage with a thatched roof. We loved this room, it was comfortable and felt like a real experience sleeping under the thatched roof in a jungle setting.... More

Although, we initially had issues with our first room, the hotel was very accommodating and was able to make a switch. The property itself was gorgeous and it was not uncommon to see hummingbirds and other wildlife right outside our room. We ended up staying in two different cabins and they were both really nice. The roof is made out... More

We started our visit to Belize at this wonderful lodge. The setting is beautiful and soothing. Accommodations were perfect for us. This is not staying at a posh city hotel so if that is the style you seek this might not be for you but if you wish to be immersed in the environment then you just scored. Staff is... More

We stayed here for two nights following our travels through Belize and Guatamala. Maya Mountain Lodge is located in a jungle setting but is a couple of miles from downtown San Ignacio (a US$5 cab ride). It is pleasant and scenic and very eco-friendly, with cabins and buildings scattered throughout the property. We stayed in a building that housed seven... More

My family of five stayed at the Maya Mountain Lodge for 3 nights as a base for our trips in the San Ignacio region. The staff at the lodge were incredibly friendly. My daughter told me the outdoor dining area "looks like Disney, but it's real". Very good breakfasts with delicious fresh juices, fruits and incredible mango jam that we... More

Situated just outside of town, you wouldn't want to stay here unless you had your own car. The rooms are located on a beautifully lush property with signs indicated different types of foliage (nice touch). The staff was very helpful in printing me documentation to get into Guatemala. Our room was the most basic we could have booked, it didn't... More

Maya Mountain Lodge in Santa Eleanor is a Mountain Retreat that seeks to provide a serene environment for its guests. The gentleman who runs the office, Elmer, provided amazing service to help guests book adventures in the area. Great stay.

Great location, excellent service. We loved coming to breakfast every morning in the beautiful outdoor dining room surrounded by trees, plants and birds chirping. In the afternoon, we relaxed in the hammock or took a swim. Close to town and perfect for exploring the Pine Mountain Ridge area.

Maya Mountain Lodge is the friendliest Lodge I have stayed at (I have visited many lodges in Africa and India) Every member of staff is smiling, polite, willing and extremely well-informed. If they are uncertain of the answer to your question, they will go and find out and return swiftly with the information you are wanting. All speak excellent English,... More

It is a shame that this lady has become upset and judgmental over what she saw during her short two night stay. The dog is part of the hotel’s security team (ie: is a working dog). This may not be a familiar concept for this lady. We believe animals should be treated with respect and their basic needs taken care... More
