Unless you like sleeping in abandoned houses this isn't worth going to. I booked it, then went to check in, waited for 10 minutes till someone who said he was security. He said the boss was out and tried to call him but nobody was to be found. I asked how many people stayed here and he said there hadn't...

I would like to take this time to apologize for the screw up on your check in. We have been having trouble with the Expedia account and did not realize that you were booked to arrive to the lodge. The lodge has been under some renovations in the rooms and was not opening until Feb. 1st so that is why...

What a strange place in the middle of nowhere! As resorts on hopkins beach were fully booked we had to choose somewhere close by instead.. But.. We were the only guests in what seemed a scene from Texas chainsaw.. It was desolate and eery. The rooms were clean, but the bathroom was terrible - plastic fittings and the 'shower' was...

My husband and I were booked into the River House Lodge for one week and couldn't take the first night. The shower was plugged so my husband had to stand ankle deep in dirty water.

12 of us who live in Belize (Ambergris Caye) stayed the night at the River House Lodge before and after our week-long stay at the Glover's Atoll offshore Belize.

My 20-year old son and I stayed at the River House Lodge for two nights and left wishing we would have reserved more time for this part of our trip in Belize. Kara and everybody else was so friendly, and it had a great laid-back atomosphere. We went out fishing with their kayaks the first afternoon, then enjoyed the indoor...

Didn't really know what to expect...but once we arrived we loved it. My wife and I stayed in a kitchenette while my daughter and grandson stayed below us.

The caretakers were very nice and kind to us. The place was very clean...albeit completely sterile. We felt like we were sleeping in a concrete bunker....or just a Holiday Inn along some random American highway. Then, there were the bugs. All night we were bitten by something, continuously. We closed the windows (they had bug screens), turned on the aircon...

Admittedly, there are insects in Sittee River, especially in the rainy season we are experiencing now. There are sandflies and mosquitos, as there are in many jungle areas in Belize, but we have never had guests have an issue with insects inside the rooms such as this before. We do our best to keep insects out of the rooms with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the banks of the beautiful Sittee River, just four miles from Hopkins, River House Lodge is an adventure waiting to happen. We have six beautiful rooms, each with two queen beds, TV/DVD's, nice big bathrooms, and screened porches. The three upstairs rooms have kitchenettes with everything you need to cook up a delightful meal right in your room. If you don't feel like cooking, join us for breakfast at our self serve breakfast bar, ask for a packed lunch to take on your adventures, or reserve your spot at our dinner table for a delicious Belizean meal, served overlooking the scenic river in our cozy dining area. While you are staying with us, ask about some of our local guided tours, maybe take a night cruise searching the banks of the Sittee River for a few crocodiles or take a hike in the nearby Mayflower Park to experience the rewards of a waterfall swim. While in the park jump on the zip-line to experience a full mile of fabulous views and supreme zip-line experience. No matter what you choose we are sure that you will love our location! ... more   less
