Belize will be forever remembered because off this establishment. Tucked away in nature, it has an expanse of private territory to explore and hike. Just take a peek at all their trails. We were a bit on the sedentary side, but enjoyed the picturesque waterfalls (e.g. Butterfly Waterfalls). Private. We learned of all these natural remedies from the plants that... More

This place is amazing. I cannot find fault in my stay. The food was delicious, the cabins and the surrounding was well maintained, the staff was perfect, and the drinks at the bar - fantastic.

About 20 miles down a 20 mph dirt road, you'll find this gem of a retreat. Road is well maintained, but you should have a high clearance vehicle.

It is indeed cooler up in the Maya mountains (+/- 2000 feet above sea level). We agree a 'high clearance vehicle' would be the best off-road. We hope... More

My husband and I needed a get away that included tropical sun, unwinding and outdoor fun, and we certainly received that at Hidden Valley Inn.

We loved our stay at the Hidden Valley Inn. Our cabin/room was very comfortable and attractively decorated and we enjoyed using the fireplace on the chilly night we were there. Meals were superb and the staff was very welcoming and friendly. I would recommend this Inn to everyone without reservations.

We visited Hidden Valley Inn as part of our honeymoon trip last month. Everything about it was fantastic. The location is so peaceful and worth the bumpy journey up to the Inn. The staff are great and the service levels are impeccable! Highlights were butterfly falls, Rio frio cave and the tour of caracoal ruins.
