Loved the accommodations, the pool and the staff, who were very friendly and knowledgable. Agosto was a terrific tour guide to the ruins, and Nellmarie mixes a mean drink. Clara arranged a terrific set of tours for us, and Taj was a great taxi driver from Placencia and then to Belize City. (took us on an impromptu tour of the capital). We stayed 5 nights. Had a great time our last night with a spur of the moment dinner in San Ignacio with lodge owner Sharon and some of the staff and another couple staying at the lodge. Sharon gave us a quick walking tour of town along with much town gossip!
(we too had a small mistake on our bar bill... but it was tiny given the total bill and we don't think it was intentional. but it is always a wise policy to check your bill anywhere.) Would definitely recommend. Nellmarie's husband is the chef, and he does a fine job with Sharon's recipes. The Moroccan chicken was my favorite.
