Set on a river, amongst birds and other wildlife, this was one of the most enjoyable places I've stayed in a long time. There's nothing quite like going to sleep with only the sound of a trickling stream, cicadas and birds chirping. The resort's layout maximizes privacy and the cabanas give you the impression you are in a remote jungle hideaway. The rooms are well appointed and the main house and Guatemalan restaurant both seem to be fashioned to be as authentic as possible.
Excellent food. I didnt find the Italian menu too exciting, but breakfast selection was incredible (Especially the fresh fruit, orange juice and coffee) and the guatemalan menu changed nightly.
The staff are _extremely attentive_ and anticipate almost all of your needs and work tirelessly to make your stay relaxing but fun filled.
- 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
