I wasn't sure about this hotel when I booked as we had visited a similar hotel in Australia a few years back, how wrong could I be...... This was one of the highlights of our 4 week trip around Central America. The hotel is in an amazing location on the river, so private.

Idyllic location providing you do not want anything extra. Great walking trips but off site excursions were very overpriced and not worth it. Accommodation and food was pretty good and serving staff were really helpful. Thought drink prices were high as we were a captured

Black Rock Lodge has it all- beautiful scenery, lovely cabins with views of the river, great food, and most important of all, a knowledgeable, friendly staff. They are great for outdoor adventures, learning Mayan history and finding wonderful birds.

We were there in December (and we loved it!). The hike to the swimming pool is the guided hike that takes about 3 hours and was lovely. The picture on the website under hikes was taken from the vista on this hike (overlooks the river/lodge). It's got pretty decent vertical, but was very do-able for our family of hikers/teenagers. It's across the river from the lodge. The hikes they recommend that you can do on your own are from the same side of the river, behind the lodge. We did not do any of them so cannot speak from experience, but there is signage. They may also have maps/more info - I would not hesitate to contact them before you go as we had a ton of questions and they were extremely helpful via email (and even more so once we were there).

I travel quite extensively and typically prefer to adventure on my own. HOWEVER - I have made lifelong friends with several people there, and if you can ever have a chance to go anywhere with Diego- your life and trip will be all the better for it.

We rented our own suv. Roads are poor but drive carefully and you will be fine.

Hi Tiffany - our reservations team will be most happy to help you make your reservation. The comments above are correct -we do get really full in March and we find that the bookings for that period usually start to fly in by October -so you should be fine, At this time we have a large group confirmed for 19 -24 March leaving only a few gaps open , but the rest of March does still have some availability. Our cancellation policy is that at 45 days or less before arrival we do not refund. We have, in special circumstances,offered our guests a credit so that they can re-use their deposit for a later booking. This of course all depends on the circumstances of the cancellation. We always recommend that our guests purchase travel insurance - life happens, We look forward to sharing the magic of Black Rock Lodge with you. Kind regards from Belize.

"All the rooms are along the river"
"We enjoyed #19, that is new and overlooks the river. But I think all the rooms are nice."
"Cabin #18 was very private and lovely. 88 steps down and up to get there but staff will bring your luggage."
"If you don't mind steps, chose a cabin by the river."
"Deluxe riverfront cabins were private and offer a river view from the porch."
