Our group of 4 stayed in the 2 rooms that comprise a duplex--Howler Monkey and Parrot's Nest. The rooms were absolutely beautiful, and the little touches made it incredibly inviting--fresh flowers, animal shaped towels, etc. The room stayed nice and cool with windows covering most of the walls, and a nice high ceiling with a powerful fan. My only complain would be that, particularly with a door separating our 2 rooms, noise easily traveled between us, so if you're looking for privacy, I wouldn't stay in one of those 2 rooms. I'm not sure how the others compare. The staff here was very attentive, gave excellent recommendations, and were friendly beyond what professionalism requires. They took excellent care of us, both at the resort and while we were away. The chef, Gilroy, was incredibly caring and greeted us as soon as we arrived to find out any food allergies or preferences, and every meal we had there was catered to our likings. I can't speak highly enough of the staff! And the food...oh the food! At first I thought it a little pricey, but for the amount of food you get, I understood completely. You will certainly not leave the restaurant hungry, and the food is incredible. I loved every single meal we ate there, which was good because there isn't much else around. But that only adds to the charm of the place...the perfectly manicured landscape of the resort is expansive and inviting, and incredibly peaceful. We hiked a bit and came upon a waterfall that, while cold, was a wonderful afternoon swim and beautiful escape.

All in all, I would 100% recommend a stay at Mama Noots to absolutely anyone. It's a stunningly beautiful and quiet place, the staff is energetic and ridiculously helpful, the food leaves nothing to be desired and is plentiful, and the rooms are perfect for relaxation or enjoying the sights and sounds of the surrounding rain forest!

My husband, sister, brother-in-law, and I stayed at Mama Noots in August of 2013 and what an AMAZING time we had!!!
Vidal was the awesome man who brought us to our resort - and ended up our tour guide on other expeditions - so kind and knowledgable!!
The resort is beautiful, welcoming, and truly warm! There are hikes all around - we did both of the waterfall hikes on our own - DEFINITELY worth the work (even in the heat and with the bugs!)!
Speaking of bugs, there are these things called Doctor Flies - do not fool yourself - Deet is the ONLY thing that will stop these creatures (I tried everything from skin-so-soft, hemp lotion, Off, etc). And make sure you pack plenty of clothes to sweat in - there was no A/C - but the rooms had a nice breeze.
The food was INCREDIBLE - thanks to Sean!! He even made us a special dessert one night per request of my husband! The menu was different each night - with such wonderful flavors and cooked perfectly! I am gluten and dairy sensitive - this was not a problem for Sean - he made each meal with such detail - selecting the freshest meats, fruits, and veggies each day.
Natalie was our fantastic host! She arranged all of our expeditions - the Mayan Ruins, cave tubing (SO AWESOME!!!), and the Riverboat tour (we saw Howler monkeys, crocodiles, birds hanging in bird houses (hard to describe), huge spiders, tons of interesting birds, and MANATEES!!
(I know I am leaving out a ton of stuff, but we only took 1,000 picts!)
Such a fun, welcoming place to stay - we definitely want to come back!!!
Thanks to all of the INCREDIBLE people who work there - you truly made us feel like family!!!

Room Tip: We had an adjoining room with my sister and her husband - we shared a front porch - this was fantast...

My friend and I recently stayed at Mama Noots Eco Jungle Resort for the first time, and it won't be our last! From the moment we stepped onto the property we were treated like revered relatives. The resort is remote, yet everything you could want to see, do, eat, or experience is a convenient drive away. We booked tours to the Monkey River, Xunantunich ruins, and cave tubing and everything was taken care of in a most professional way. All staff are kind, courteous, and committed to making your stay FABULOUS. Plan to eat at the Wild Fig restaurant for some of Gilroy's delectable meals. There is plenty to do and see here but it is also a great location to just relax and renew. I highly recommend that you spend some time with the staff and allow them to share about their culture, food, surroundings, and history.

Mama Noots was the highlight of our stay in Belize. We booked one of the Mayan rooms and upon arrival we learned we would be the only guests for the night and got a free upgrade to the wonderfully decorated Howler Monkey Room. The staff was very friendly and attentive, they did their best to accomodate any request we had. Gilroy, the chef of their restaurant asked us every day what we'd like to have for dinner and we loved every single dish he created and still miss his home-made bread. On our second day we booked a tour to hike up Antelope Falls and rappel down. Emilio and Jesus were great guides and made sure we had a ton of fun while keeping us safe the whole time. Later the same day we went on to the zipline and had a great time. Overall we enjoyed every moment of our stay at Mama Noots and highly recommend it to everyone.

Our experience at Mama Noots Eco Resort was top notch. The choices of things to do are simply great. We went Zip lining (excellent), experienced Maya ruins and cave tubing (wonderful). Highly recommend the hike to Antelope Falls with its great view of the jungle and simply great swimming pool (the hike in itself is an experience!). The service was second to none and the food was a culinary delight. Chef simply makes magic happen in his kitchen. All staff members are friendly and highly accommodating. For a Belizean experience you won't soon forget we highly recommend Mama Noots Eco Resort.

I have stayed at Mama Noots two times now. I loved each time I went, The grounds, has a lot to offer for non stop fun and adventure or for those less adventerous the place is the best for just relaxing. I love it here and am always sad to leave but have firm plans on coming back. The staff are warm,friendly, have a way of making you feel at home.The chef at restaurant is very talented and takes care of the guests with genuine care and thoughtfulness. Der , Anicia, and Javier worked the front desk and were all friendly and accomadating. The guides are professional, ensuring that equipment is safe,and guests safety,while making it a lot of fun, taking you ziplining,hiking to the waterfalls and repelling.Its quite a adventure! I will be going back to Mama Noots soon.

I stayed at mamanoots for one night and love this place! Went on two hikes, swam in the pools below antelope falls and zip lining. The staff are all extremely nice and helpful. The property is landscaped beautifully and the hotel rooms are amazing.
