Reviews for Lodge at Chaa Creek
The stay started out as well as would be hoped for however the problems really began after we left. Chaa Creek had originally charged our credit card prior to our arrival. After we checked out however they charged an additional $1,054.13 U.S. dollars. We emailed the hotel and called them as soon as we learned about the issue 2 days later. Chaa Creek could not find the issue. The person at Reservations only said that she worked for only another 30 minutes so there is no ETA on when the issue will hopefully be resolved.

excellent people, awesome food, and excellent cottages. couldn't ask for anymore. too bad I had to leave. A/C would have been nice. Got a personal tour from Mick and was ready to ask for a job. need to get off the grid, this is the place. Hollering monkies are your morning alarm clock.

We enjoyed our stay at Chaa Creek. The people were lovely the guides informative and made the excursions special. The food was very good. Our picky nine year old twins were happy with the food and so were the more sophisticated eaters in our crew.

We stayed at Chaa Creek for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The lodge was amazing, food was wonderful, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. There was so much to do, from river canoeing, cave tours, and Maya ruin tours, we could have stayed busy for over a week. If you have the chance you MUST visit.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Chaa Creek with our boys (ages 11 and 13). We flew from Ambergris Caye and it was so easy; the air strip is about 5 minutes away. We stayed in the Macal Cottage and our kids stayed in their own cottage near us. The hardest part for us was the lack of AC, but it didn't help that we were there during a very hot week (100+ degrees and humidity). We are from CA and not used to the heat or humidity. We spent lots of time cooling off in the pool, and also some time in the conference center since it had AC. The staff told us it was too hot for them, too! All of the staff were helpful and friendly. Top notch! Everyone was very good with our youngest son's life-threatening peanut allergy, and we always felt he was safe. The food was all delicious. We enjoyed the included breakfast which either included a special or something we chose. My husband and I enjoyed eggs, while our boys enjoyed chocolate chip pancakes! Lunch and dinners were also excellent with great, quality ingredients. A huge bonus of Chaa Creek is all the activities that they can book for you. You will never be bored! While there we did the following: ATM cave tour (a hi-lite), Xunantunich ruins (had planned to bike to/from, but with the heat we opted to take the AC van), butterfly tour, and my oldest and husband rented mountain bikes for the day and rode around the grounds. We heard howler monkeys at night and that was really fun (and a little eerie)! We also heard that two guests had found scorpions in their rooms, so beware. I would check our rooms throughout the day to make sure we didn't have any surprises. I highly recommend Chaa Creek. Such a unique and lovely place.
