We stayed at Chaa Creek in July.....and had no idea what to expect. We were coming from a private island with amazing service so we thought we would be let down somewhat....but were we ever wrong! the accommodations were BEAUTIFUL...complete with thatched roofs! and while I freaked out about no AC....we really didn't need it! the staff remembered our names...

The knowledge the guides possess is overwhelming. It was like a college course in Mayan history, bird watching, spelunking Howler monkey calling, butterfly breeding and eco friendly culture in 3 days. I feel empowered, enlightened and grateful.

Great experience at Chaa Creek. Excellent service and went out of their way to accommodate our requests. Beautiful grounds. Very good food. Prepare for seclusion. Highly recommend ATM and Xunantunich excursions.

Our family had an outstanding experience at Chaa Creek. Accommodations and service were the best. I just wish we had booked more days at Chaa Creek to take advantage of more of the on-site activities. We booked one of their jungle and beach packages, splitting time between Chaa Creek and Robert's Grove in Placencia. That was good too, but no... More

My wife and I departed for Belize with some trepidation because our trip, planned for July, seemed to coincide with the rainy season and with it, we were sure, tons of mosquitoes. The staff at Chaa Creek assured us there would be few if any mosquitoes, and amazingly that turned out to be true. There was very little rain, although... More

We stayed at Chaa Creek for 25th anniversary for 4 nights. It was tremendous. The treehouse suite was perfect, food was great, Alice in the restaurant is a sweetheart and funny, activities were amazing---ATM cave was a huge adventure, camping to San Ignacio was so chill-- would recommend Chaa Creek highly.

The grounds and cottages are just beautiful - it's really a lovely and relaxing place. The staff are all so warm, friendly and helpful - they were especially wonderful with our kids. We did lots of... More

From the owners Mick and Lucy's attention to detail and deep love for the land and the people of Belize, to their staff's genuine excitement for their jobs and their attention to detail with each guest interaction, my recent trip was INCREDIBLE. I had been there before in the early 2000s, but this time I came with my 1 1/2... More

We loved every minute of our stay at Chaa Creek Lodge. Our cottage was spacious and very comfortable, with its own sundeck, and set in such lovely grounds which are well maintained. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and the bar and restaurant areas leafy and relaxing. All around was beautiful birdsong and there... More

I think this place is ok, but some things happened to me that weren't very good. It is an eco camp separate from Chaa Creek Lodge, it was the Macal River Camp. It was what I was expecting as far as rustic camp accommodations, but at the end of the trip when I was packing, a large scorpion appeared inside... More
