Sheila and Rusty were the perfect hosts! My family has lived in Belize for 7 years now, We thought we knew all the good spots, were we wrong! This really is a beautiful spot not far off the road at all but you would swear you are in the heart of the undisturbed jungle. The amenities were way above par for Belize, I understand the struggle it is to get the latest updates in a third world country, they really met the challenge. Great WiFi, cable and hot, hot water. So clean too! Lots of activities to do on the property like rare bird watching, loads of different animals and gorgeous hikes, gorgeous. It's great that you are only a short commute to the heart of Punta Gorda to do some great shopping. Thanks guys for a wonderful experience. See you soon for sure!
Recently spent five nights at Chaab'il B'e and enjoyed it a lot. Really nice grounds (forest trails and landscaped gardens - great for birding) and rooms/facilities, good food, overall an excellent stay.
We had a wonderful family stay in the Casita. Lovely grounds. Great hosts. Fully enjoyed the Punta Gorda area. Recommend the chocolate tour, town centre market, local waterfalls and snake cayes. Nice change from heavy tourist areas.
Chaab'il B'e is a truly great place to stay! I came as part of a cacao tour and had an amazing week. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the AC works well in the rooms in the lodge and the grounds are beautiful. Sheila and Rusty were lovely hosts and the food each day was unbelievable! Since we were part of a cacao tour, each dinner had an aspect of cacao incorporated into the meal. From chocolate baguette, to cacao nib roti, to chocolate mango cheesecake - I couldn't get over my week of meals in chocolate heaven! Sheila was also so friendly and helpful in orchestrating tours as well as even helping me change the time of a domestic flight on the last day. I definitely recommend staying here and hope to come back some day in the not to distant future!!
What a wonderful place to stay. We traveled here as a group of 11 and truly enjoyed our stay. The property is clean, staff is friendly and welcoming, and (if you have the chance to eat at the lodge), the food is stellar! Punta Gorda isn't far in case you need things only available in a larger area. And Shiela arranged for tours nearby so there really weren't any issues or concerns about our stay. Highly recommend.
