This review has been LOOONG overdo. My husband and I stayed at Mariposa Jungle Lodge for 3 nights in August for our honeymoon and couldn't have enjoyed the experience more! Since it was low season we were the only ones at the lodge for the...More

This is a great review that makes me chuckle. This delightful guest has given me credit for the great work of Nelmarie Bol, our General Manager, and she has attributed the fine cooking to my husband rather than Chef Esau, husband of Nelmarie. But the...More
Where to begin?? What a lovely and fantastic time we had at Mariposa Jungle Lodge! From the initial planning stages, right through to check out everything was perfect! Sharyn was very friendly, helpful and quick to respond to emails during the planning stages. The entire...More

It's challenging to find new ways to express appreciation for a thoughtful, complimentary review, so I'll apply the "KISS" principle and just say a sincere "Thank you!" on behalf of the Mariposa crew. We all enjoy confirmation that we've done a good job and succeeded...More
The hotel canceled our confirmed reservation (that we had booked three months in advance) just 6 days before our arrival. When we tried contacting the hotel, our calls to the hotel didn't get picked up. This left us scrambling to find an alternate hotel at...More

Please realize something has happened beyond our control. Rather than speculate, I am investigating the facts and ask you to kindly check in a few days to learn what I uncover. Something is seriously wrong. As our reputation attests, guest service is our...More
Had a great but too short stay at Mariposa Jungle Lodge! I was definitely surprised by the amazing gourmet food served out in the middle of the jungle--a variety of plates and all delicious!! The staff were all super friendly, helpful and accommodating, not to...More

Thanks for your enthusiastic review. We look forward to hosting you on a longer stay to share more of the Maya and jungle wonders of our great location. And our Chef has lots more memorable creations for you to experience.
The staff at Mariposa were truly BEYOND accommodating. From the dining to the private-led excursions and more, everything was wonderful. My only suggestion would be to add air conditioning in the common area (dining, bar) as meals were a bit sticky--but that's to be expected...More

Thank you for your kind comments. I'm delighted you enjoyed the jungle segment of your honeymoon with us.
With respect to a/c in the dining area, you might recall that one wall of the room is screened, making it impractical and wasteful to have effective...More
The Jaguar Honeymoon Suite is definitely worth it for the privacy, especially the outdoor shower for two! The deck is up off the ground and there's a beautifully tiled wall that keeps anyone from seeing you. It's a cool... More
The Jaguar Honeymoon Suite is definitely worth it for the privacy, especially the outdoor shower for two! The deck is up off the ground and there's a beautifully tiled wall that keeps anyone from seeing you. It's a cool experience and totally private. You also have an oversized screened porch with a double hammock for cuddling and listening to the jungle sounds.
The private romantic dinner is a nice touch and it comes with a complimentary bottle of wine. When weather permits, we can set this up poolside which creates wonderful ambience for the two of you. With the romance package you also get a champagne welcome, flowers in your room, and a little Belizean gift basket. Nice touches for your anniversary!
Full disclosure: I was first a guest of Mariposa in 2012 and fell in love with the place, and now help them with marketing. For 2017 trips we're offering 10% off packages including romance :)
