Beautiful grounds, front desk staff welcoming and friendly. However our stay during covid times was marred with unacceptable service. I understand there need to be cutbacks due to covis, but quality of food and service needs to be maintained. Two of our party were made sick by improperly prepared food, and due to a misunderstanding by staff we waited over an hour for a room service order. When I checked and it eventually arrived it was poor quality and not what we ordered. The server refused to return it to the kitchen and challenged me in a disrepectful manner. In his exited state he dropped the tray and tried to blame me for not accepting g it. He also refused to call managent. Once the manager who just happened by, heard the situation she sent the delivery boy back and attempted to resolve the situation in a professional manner. On check out I asked to speak with the GM.. after some reluctance and delay from the front staff he was eventually summoned. I explained the situation about the food and also pointed out an over charge for breakfast which was to be included. This was obviously an attempt by staff to recupe the cost of the meal the inept server ruined. When I asked Mr Wolfgang if there was quality control in the kitchen, he said, "there should be, but no there wasn't due to staff cuts. This us unacceptable for a resort of this level. Our vacation was ruined due to the illness caused by the improper food preparation. I would be cautious booking here during covid times. We will not come back or recommend this place to our acquaintances. You call your place 5 Stars, keep the level of service up to maintain it. Thank you.

If I could rate Ka’ana 100 stars I would! Our stay at Ka’ana was absolutely fantastic! From the moment it began to the minute we left every detail was top notch! The staff was beyond friendly and within 7 days became our family. They created an intimate experience that blew us away, making every moment of our elopement memorable. Our room was beautiful with its own private garden and plunge pool to boot! We loved how eco conscious and sustainable everything was. The grounds were perfectly manicured, showcasing all of the flora that could potentially end up on your plate or in your drink that day! The food was OUTSTANDING! Every meal prepared with care and more delicious than I could have imagined! I’m still craving the ceviche! When we weren’t eating everything in site we were enjoying the most blissful massages ever! We had a beautiful elopement ceremony at Cahal Pech Archeological Reserve in the middle of our stay. All the planning of our special day was done with ease! All of my crazy requests (within reason) were granted! The day was filled with love from the time it started until it ended with an amazing dinner in their beautiful wine cellar. Once we were married we still had a few days left for adventure! The different tour’s they have available will make you feel like you’re Indians Jones or Lara Croft Tomb Raider! They are seamlessly curated to give you once in a life time experience! ATM IS A MUST! And don’t miss out on their Mayan Cooking Class if you are any type of foodie! The entire staff contributed to our wonderful time at Ka’ana Resort. I wish I had more words to express the joy I still feel from our trip. I know we will be regular guests at the resort for years to come. If you have any doubts booking at this lovely paradise look no further. Ka’ana Resort is hands down an experience of a lifetime! Whether you want a unique wedding or just want a relaxing vacay this place is simply perfect.

All I can say is WOW. The grounds were gorgeous, the service was spot on, and the experiences the hotel provided were unforgettable. We booked the ATM cave tour through Ka’ana and a traditional Mayan cooking class, and both were so much fun. Make sure to ask for a tour of the gardens and meet the girls who provide the restaurant with eggs for your breakfast! We stayed in the 2-bedroom villa and it was so nice having our own space to relax, but the main pool was also very comfortable. The hotel takes health and safety very seriously and we always felt safe- everyone wore masks indoors and out as per the standards across the country. If you’re looking to stay in the area, I highly recommend this resort.

I didn't realize how many things could go wrong until you look back and realize we had ZERO problems.... for a wedding.... in another country... during covid. This is entirely because of the Ka'ana staff. I genuinely didn't know what to expect, but I'm easy going, so I was going to make the best of what came our way and I wasn't going to stress about it. Looking back now, a month later, I couldn't have planned anything better. Where every detail and moment has become part of our story that we get to share with friends and family. Being treated so wonderfully without being overly tended-to is an incredibly fine line, one which only Ka'ana has ever thread this well in my experience. I was always excited to see the staff and chat, whether it was the first day and i was getting my bearings, the day of the wedding and I needed a distraction, or discussing the big day in the following days, and i felt genuinely felt that the staff were too. It created such a wonderful experience that this (other than the wedding) will always be my first and fondest memory of Ka'ana, and Belize itself! The local staff are so friendly and helpful that you can ask all sorts of questions (which I did...a lot) and you get a perspective that only San Ignacio locals can offer. Exactly what I love about travel - discussions with locals. I felt much more welcome here than any other place or country I've ever been. I can't state enough how comforting that is. I became somewhat of a foodie thanks to my stay there too! I found out after we left people come a long way for the food at Ka'ana alone, where is ex-pats, or guests from other hotels, and it's not hard to see why once you try anything on the menu. All fruit and vegetables on offer in the restaurant are grown on the grounds. Forget farm to table, this is even better. The custom created drinks at the bar were the best I've ever had in any country or any bar (and I've had my fair share). All concoctions are unique and fresh as, again, everything is grown just a few meters from the bar! Belize is an adventure destination with so much to do. It can become overwhelming if you don't know what you're doing or who to arrange with. Fear not! Ka'ana has you covered. Day trips and guides are of the highest quality along with the same friendly and welcoming attitudes. They will also make sure you have everything you need for the day, so no stress there either. Truly my favorite place in the world. Visit Ka'ana and maybe you'll refer to them as family like we do now! See you there on one of our return trips!!!
