I first went to CottonTree in 2007 shortly after they opened. I came back to visit cacao farms in the area and show my friend some of the archeological sites nearby. CottonTree has gotten better with age! The meals were great and staff friendly and attentive. The grounds are a delight and there is a new wellness cabana with yoga... More

Such an incredible place. I don't think I have one bad thing to say about Cotton Tree Lodge. I highly recommended it to all my friends who have plans of visiting Belize. I want to start off by saying that the staff is amazing. Valerie, Parama, Maria, Marcelo, the tour guides, the security men, EVERYONE. They all were so attentive... More

Amazing- Amazing- Amazing First let's talk about the STAFF.... All I can say is that they are the best. All are kind, open, friendly and helpful people.... More

We visited in early June 2016 during the slow season. We were upgraded to the cabana right along the river. The cabanas were rustic, maya insprired huts with thatched roofs. Being Belize, it rained almost every night, a beautiful sound to sleep to. They are spacious inside and out, even chairs and 2 hammock on the front porch for lazy... More

We came to the lodge at the end of April into the beginning of May. The resort is a very secluded and tucked next to a beautiful, lazy river. The staff was very friendly, and they were easily accessible if we needed something such as a fresh coconut during an early morning walk. We loved the fact that there was... More

I'm giving this resort the highest rating 5/5 you can on here. This is without a doubt the best place to stay in Belize to have access to the natural beauty this county has to offer. Access to offshore fishing, fresh water fishing, sightseeing the Mayan ruins, caving, great food, and an incredibly peaceful and beautiful setting...this is the best... More

The staff was great from office manager Valerie to the cooks, housekeeping and tour guides Nate & Pop. We were there with two other couples in 5 days.The grounds were pretty. Hearing the howler monkeys roar for the first time was a little unsettling but we got use to it. Keep in mind this is an eco lodge. Wildlife we... More

We had a great experience at Cotton Tree. The staff were all very friendly and we felt very well taken care of here. It is so relaxing right on the river and we felt like we were really getting to experience Belize by being at this location. Our only disappointment was staying just 3 nights. We did two tours while... More

We stayed overnight at the Cotton Tree. To get a good experience from the lodge, I think the traveler should spend at least three, or more, days. It strikes me as a place you stay and enjoy the amenities and activities, and there are many to choose from. All of the activities cost extra so if you just want an... More

Thanks for your comments and feedback! Cotton Tree Lodge has much to offer and most people do opt for a 3-5 night stay so they can enjoy the beauty and seclusion of the Jungle along the river. We do offer a wide rang of tours offsite both adventurous and cultural. Sometimes the heat of the tropics is a bit uncomfortable... More

Cotton Tree Lodge was a fantastic experience. My fiancé and I booked this trip last minute with a Groupon and couldn't have been happier about our decision. The food was excellent! A lot was fresh from the garden they have on site. We especially loved the family style seating and getting to know others that were visiting and what adventures... More
