We booked an all-inclusive package at this hotel for two reasons: they were offering vegan food (we are vegan), and they were offering trips to most places we wanted to see. Jason (the owner) was extremely helpful over email to customize our trip, adding things that were not advertised on their website (a trip to Altun Ha, a trip to Xunatunich, both Mayan ruins, also a trip to snorkel and see manatees from San Pedro). The place is unassuming from the road, but an actual jungle botanical garden once you wander on its paths. The rooms are basic but comfortable, and have amenities such as A/c and fridge. There is bottled water available. Only thing you may need to bring is a hair dryer if you want (although one can probably be borrowed from the common room which has a TV and internet; no TV in the rooms, which actually I enjoyed). The FOOD is fantastic!!! We had wonderful Belizean breakfasts and dinners with Chinese flair (Christine, the owner and her staff are great cooks), and the only problem was i could not always finish all of it :).
Lunch was provided on our trips (at different restaurants), and the trips were informative, the guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. There is no swimming pool but an actual swimming hole on the property grounds. We loved our stay!
