Beautiful resort, well maintained, a little dump at night, but this is the rainy forest and it was raining a lot !! Nice staff. The access is difficult ! Get ready for a bumpy ride if you arrive at Belize city, but it is worthy. The kids (from 12 to 18) really enjoyed it. Swim in the river, walk to the water falls and swim there, visit to a Maya sight...If you go you have to be ready to get in a car and visit some of the sights around, the guides are excellent and know a lot about Belize and it's culture. The food was OK but not exceptional. Cocktails by the fireplace were very good !!
- 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
