“Just like the name says”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

When they say "you need a 4 wheel drive" you should take their advice! Robert and Roeni were great hosts. Roeni is an amazing cook. Their property is beautiful and kept up extremely well. They work hard to make their guests comfortable and happy. They will book excursions for you, cook you meals, pack you lunch, tow your vehicle, give you rides, and share stories with you! Again, I can't say enough about how beautiful and peaceful their property is. The location is great if you are looking to get away in the jungle at an Eco friendly property. If you want to be near town, this isn't the place for you.

Inn the Bush was more than we ever expected on the in-land portion of our Belize trip. The property is immaculate, the rooms are beautiful and reflect that of a 5-star chain hotel rather than a jungle cabin! On top of that, Robert, Roeni & the kids are fun, chatty and a pleasure to be around. If that isn't enough, stay here just for Roeni's cooking! Roeni catered to our vegetarian diets with healthy, fresh cooking and anything we needed was on hand.

Our Belizean family of (4) spent 5 nights and 6 days with Rob & Roeni and we all agree that this vacation is now on top of the list. Cabana (Harpy Eagle) was perfect for our 1 yr old that left "walking" and our 5 yr old as well. She and her father became very friendly with the two horses that came to say hello every morning. Both owners were great company and very concerned about your comfort. If you don't eat dinners here you will surely be missing out. Roeni, is a great cook and makes many wonderful rum drinks. I could say more but suggest that you check it out yourself. My daughter is already asking when we can go back!!

we now have a home in Belize. Rob and Roeni made us welcome from the very first minute we arrived. the cabana, pool, food and company was excellent. My 10 yr old even had a sleepover with Regina the 13 yr old daughter. The rooms were peaceful, clean, and beautiful interior with hammocks and chairs on the deck outside. I miss the sounds of the jungle and more than that I miss the lively conversations with Rob, Roeni and the many friends that come by. Roeni even took two days and was our guide to San Ignacio. We explored Cahal Pech, the Iguana sanctuary and even a butterfly farm with her and Regina. We learned so much and got a real taste of Belize. Ervas restaurant was a highlight and meeting Landy who is an encyclopedia of Belize was great. We are going to visit again and feel like we have friends and family in the bush.

We had an absolutely superb stay at Inn the Bush. Robert and Roeni run an excellent eco-lodge. Our cabana, the Harpy Eagle, overlooking the tropical forest with it’s misty morning view and moonlit nights on the veranda was perfect. The three cabanas, house, and main meeting area are arranged to enhance the beauty of the site. Topped off by an ample and well designed pool, Inn the Bush is where you want to be after a day touring the Cayo. Roeni is the creative, well-appreciated chef whose delicious breakfasts and suppers kept us looking forward to each meal. Robert and Roeni’s welcoming spirit made us feel at home and gave us an up close look at life in the Cayo. You can relax at Inn the Bush, use it as the jumping off point for tours, but you will surely have a memorable visit. Getting to the Inn is easy with someone else doing the driving which makes sense once you travel over the Cayo’s roads. Arrangements for tours, airport connections, and stops in transit were aided promptly and efficiently by Robert and Roeni. We picked the Inn because of the outstandingly positive reviews. Inn the Bush lives up to its growing reputation.

Room Tip: All looked uniquely beautiful. The layout of the cabanas, pool, and dining veranda were designed to...

Had a great time last week at Inn the Bush - peaceful, private, restful, and lots of fun! The word 'cabin' does not do justice to the beautifully appointed guest cottages, with gracious rooms, bathrooms and verandahs. The grounds are lovely. I found the Inn to be a charming mix of fine hotel comforts and down-home hospitality. The central palapa is welcoming, Rob is a charming host and the beer is well-priced - a good thing because the road in is a little rough and if you don't have a car, the furthest you might walk is to the resort next door. Roeni's home cooking is delicious and a real treat after a few days of mediocre restaurants. We left satisfied that we got value for money, and wish we could have stayed another couple of days.
