8/10 Very good

Cute resort for an overnight stay
Super cute resort close to the airport. We stayed here 1 night so we could do some mainland excursions before heading to an island. There were only 6 people staying here during our time but that didn't matter, the service is top notch. We had a nice room overlooking the pool. We got to see the local howler monkeys in the trees which was cool. There were 2 things that could have been better. 1. We had to wait over an hour at the airport for some other people to get there. 2. Its located on the river so they have boats you can use but there was only one kayak available, the paddle boat was broken and the dock area needed some cleaning up.

Great place to stay
We had a spacious room with a very comfy bed, and we stayed 3 nights. All the staff were super friendly. We booked several tours through the hotel and used their paid shuttle service to get into Belize City a few times - everything was pretty easy to set up. We did a tour to Lamanai and also to Caves Branch for cave tubing. We enjoyed our stay!
