stayed 4 days at blancaneaux with family (17, 15 and 4 year old). we stayed in the FFC Villa - amazing experience! we had our own attendant who was on 24 hour call. we would tell him what time we would like coffee made the following morning and order breakfast the night before. It was great to wake up to the smell of coffee in the next room. He would deliver breakfast 30 minutes later. It was amazing to have breakfast every morning at the outside large dining table at the villa. went on several excursions - horseback riding, carcocal ruins, hiking to waterfalls - all excellent. also, swimming in the river that runs through the property is fun! even though we loved the experience, we probably would not go back. it is more of a one time experience. **took private place from belize city to property ~ quite the airplane ride...landing on a dirt air strip!!
transferred to turtle inn for 2nd portion of trip (see review of turtle inn...not good!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the early 1980s, Francis Ford Coppola visited Belize, immediately fell in love with the location, and purchased the abandoned Blancaneaux Lodge. For more than a decade the resort was used as a family retreat before Francis opened his tropical paradise to the public in 1993. Tucked away in a pocket of the Maya Mountains, Blancaneaux Lodge is a 20-room luxury resort where waterfalls tumble into turquoise pools above the jungle canopy. Its remote mountain setting makes it a perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. ... more less
