We had the best time, loved this place the location was so beautiful, the staff amazing, the tours were perfect, and it turns out the owners from a small town in Montana and we had lots of mutual friends in our home state, though the Carrs had moved to Belize 40 years ago. They have worked so hard to become successful farmers, ranchers, and resort owners, Carolyn Carr is an amazing artist,and the family run operation so warm and friendly, I can not say enough good things about this place.

Room Tip: be prepared the plumbing needs updating in all rooms, don't let it stop you from staying at this great place.

We had a wonderful experience with a whole day horse back riding. We loved that when the 95 horses were not working they were free to roam about a thousand acres. The downside was the horses had many ticks and we had lots of bites. The entire staff showed excellent customer service and the ranch location was beautiful.

Our stay at the ranch was incredible. We stayed in a cabana with a patio in front looking over a lawn with horses and brand new foals grazing. Right in front of us. Past the lawn was the river in full view. In the afternoon., we would watch the cowboys come back from swimming the horses in the river. Then there were the two viewable aviaries with beautiful parrots of very color and peacocks and Central American birds I had never seen. The sounds were incredible all over the ranch. Tika, who is a young jaguar is in a lovely enclosure and we would stop and enjoy her incredible beauty Then we were surprised to meet Rufus, a spider monkey, who sat in my lap

We went to ride in the jungle and ride we did. Incredible trails for hours at a time.
our guide who would stop and explain to us the natural jungle remedies. We saw and heard the howler monkeys. Just incredulous noise these little monkeys make.

The most special aspect of the trip was the owners and their daughter Lisa. What an incredible family. People that braved the wilderness in this third world country and are about the most special people I have ever met. If you need to remember what life is really about, spend some time talking to them. And they treat everyone like their personal house guests.

Rough? This is a ranch in the mountains in Belize. Overpriced? A bit, but it is expensive to have such a wonderful ranch with over 100 head of horses, a lovely pool and all the staff.

While I travel to see a beautiful place I think the The Carrs will give me incredible memories and life insights for years to come.

These people will do about anything to make you happy. They really do care.

You will never get an experience like this at Sheraton or Marriott. I promise.

This is the real deal!

Room Tip: Check all the available rooms. They let us move.

Well it looks like other people enjoyed their stay but our family of four stayed in one of the cabanas and the tub was rusty, knobs were falling off, a window had been torn out of the wall of the dining room and left leaning against the wall with a pile of rubble. Tablecloth was filthy. This was the most expensive and worst place we stayed in Belize. Breakfast was okay and maybe if you have a room in the main building it would be alright as well.

Room Tip: stay in main lodge, or better yet, not at all.

I spent a week @ Banana Bank and loved it!.The food was awesome-healthy,fresh and sooo good.I relaxed at the pool,went on a horseback ride that was thrilling and beautiful,heard the howler monkeys and thoroughly enjoyed the many people I met and the staff. Have stayed previously on one of the Cayes in Belize and Banana Bank gave me a new experience in this beautiful country. The owners graciously spent time and meals with their guests,sharing their stories and information about Belize.Staff was extremely accommodating to needs of their guests and it is located close to many other activities,e.g.ziplining,cave exploration,Mayan ruins.Located right by the river,the grounds are lovely,the beautiful birds,the spider monkey,and of course Tika the jaguar made this a place I will definitely recommend to others and return to.

Room Tip: Rooms are large and have several beds for families or large groups
