What struck me most about the Eco-Village Hotel is the high level of personal service from its staff, particularly proprietor Christine and driver El Fredo. The kitchen staff were also very helpful and prepared lovely multi-course meals every night using locally grown, organic produce. The breakfast orange juice was particularly memorable for its freshness. Note the hotel does not have a wine cellar but you can consume your own wine, beer etc (these can be purchased from the nearby local shops).
My room was spacious and the air conditioner coped with the humidity quite well; there was also a refrigerator that proved useful during a stay of some days. Mosquitoes are a force to be reckoned with, particularly at certain times of the year, so repellent is a necessity.
The Eco-Village Hotel is located a little distance outside Belize City itself, which is desirable as some parts are not especially safe. However, the staff can organise a variety of excursions or arrangements can be made for the driver to take you to places such as the Belize Zoo. The zoo proved to be one of the highlights of my stay and I highly recommend it. Also the trip to the Mayan ruins at Lamanai via the river was very good indeed.
So, if going to Belize City, this hotel has much to recommend it.
