Reviews for Lodge at Chaa Creek
San Ignacio is a fun destination with a lot to do, but I was a bit disappointed with my hotel choice. While the grounds are beautiful and well maintained, I did not feel like I was staying at a "luxury" lodge. STAFF - Staff is my biggest complaint about the hotel. I got a condescending, rude vibe from a lot of employees. It was incredibly off-putting and soured my stay. Staff also wasn't knowledgeable about the hotel/restaurant/amenities to the point where it was bizarre how much conflicting information and incorrect information we got about the restaurant, tours, etc. It was frustrating to say the least. Staff highlight and exception was Alex at the butterfly garden. He was knowledgeable and his tour was interesting. FOOD - mediocre at best. I had breakfast daily at the restaurant, which was good, but the waitstaff was weirdly stingy (if you order eggs, you're allowed a side of potatoes and bacon, but if you want fruit instead of those things that's an extra charge). It was annoying considering this is a $12 breakfast in an area where $3 in town gets you more than you can ever eat. And if you don't order properly you'll be left hungry after (ex - continental breakfast was 10 small slices of melon and star fruit with an end-piece of banana bread the size of my thumb). I don't recommend dinner here, we had it once and the food was lousy. There are tons of great restaurants in town. Drinks at the bar were great! When we checked in we were told happy hour drinks were 2 for 1, when we got the bill they weren't. It was fine and it didn't stop us from getting drinks other nights, but it was annoying that we were told otherwise multiple times by our check-in staff. ROOMS - Pretty and spacious but dark! After reading other reviews I couldn't even imagine how dark the campsites are!! The screen windows/doors make everything damp, and some of our sheets had weird stains when we arrived, but I guess that's all part of the open air experience. I wish housekeeping had been more thorough though (lots of cobwebs left and the shower was visibly left uncleaned). Also, no turndown service??? Isn't that standard if you want to call yourself a luxury property? POOL - Depending on the time of day it can be relaxing or you'll be enjoying your drink with the background music of swarms of kids playing "Marco Polo." Towels weren't replenished too often, but no real complaints here - it was a refreshing and well maintained pool with beautiful tiling. I came here based on other positive trip advisor reviews, so maybe I'm missing something? Perhaps I ate dinner on an off night in the kitchen or stayed at a particularly busy time when the staff was overworked? I really don't know. I've stayed at luxury ecolodges elsewhere in Central America and stayed at other hotels in Belize, so I thought I knew what I was getting myself into here, but this wasn't the same.

After doing a lot of research, we decided to pick Chaa Creek for the first half of our honeymoon. Everything we had read rated them very highly, and they did not disappoint! We stayed in a Treetop Suite, which was perfect and offered arguably the best view on the property. Not having A/C in the humid jungle was certainly different, but the ample fans and breeze kept things pleasant. The staff was spectacular: front desk, tour guides, restaurant, bar, and more. We highly recommend Chaa Creek to anyone and will absolutely go back as soon as we get the chance!

I stayed at Chaa creek in July with my two kids (7yr and 13yr), and I must say it was a memorable experience for each of us. The Resort is gorgeous and has a lot to offer, but for me what stood up the most is the staff, everyone I met was friendly and accommodating. We stayed in one of the cottages, and it was perfect for my little family. The food was also very good, especially their dinner.

Chaa Creek is everything and more that we had hoped for. Fabulous accommodation deep in the Jungle yet with all the facilities one would expect from an upmarket hotel. The only negative was the cost of the excursions. We had our own car which made our excursions cheeper than the ones on offer from the loge.
It was a wonderful 10 days. Everyone that works there was so helpful and friendly. The resort is not huge, which means it has more of a family feel to it and by the third day people knew me by name. The food was outstanding and the specialty drinks at the bar were delicious. The resort was very well maintained. The spa was top notch- and a must-do if you are staying here. It is only minutes away from Mayan Ruins and nature is all around. We were even lucky enough to see and hear the Howler Monkeys that live in the surrounding area. It was awesome!
