Recent San Ignacio property reviews

  • A great stay in general.

    "Had pretty much all we needed but some disappointments: Shower head was hanging off it's pipe, we had to do a repair before we could shower; WIFI didn't work; house reeked of insecticide, had to air out the house but could still smell it strongly...but no roaches; LOTS of dog barking from all over the neighborhood that would go on for hours on end while we were trying to sleep, ended up getting earplugs. Otherwise, it was clean and had all we needed for cooking etc. Owner and caretaker were very nice to work with and we enjoyed our stay and using the house as home base for adventures. We visited Xunantunich, ATM Cave and Tikal. Highly recommend William from Belize Shuttles for getting around, awesome person."

  • Amazing lodge, amazing food, amazing hospitality! FIVE STARS!

    "I cannot express enough in this review how much we thoroughly enjoyed the Macaw Bank Jungle Lodge! From the rooms, to the food, to the beauty of the property, to the attentive service, this lodge is 5 stars all the way, without the 5 star cost. We were a group of 9. We visited the Cayo and Placencia and wished we had stayed at MBJL longer and spent less time in Placencia. That was how great this jungle lodge is! Anyone planning on visiting Belize and not planning to visit the Cayo district and the MBJL is making a mistake. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were totally taken care of. The owners (Ron and Al) and their wonderful staff (Henry, Reuben and Eduardo) were so accomodating, gracious and welcoming! The rooms are clean, comfortable and attractive. They consist of handmade furniture from local wood as well as local art. The showers are made of beautiful stone. One room can accomodate 2 people, but the other 4 rooms can accomodate 3-4 people each. The rooms have electricity, lights and a fully operating bathroom/shower. The lodge is in the Cayo district where there is so much to do! ATM cave tour,Tikal in Guatemala, the ruins of Caracol and the ruins of Xunantunich. There is river tubing, birding and other activities too. Now, about the food! After our first dinner, we decided to eat all of our meals (breakfasts and dinners) at the lodge. The food was that good! Nothing we tasted the entire time in Belize compared with the meals that Ron, Al and his staff prepared for us. We had children in our group as well as a vegetarian and they always found a way to make a meal that accomodated everyone and was delicious! My kids ate foods i've never seen them eat before!From soups to salads to entrees to dessert, all of the food was awesome! If the restaurant was on Yelp, it would have 5 stars. I cannot stress this enough, EAT ALL YOUR MEALS AT THE LODGE! 2 things to be aware of: 1.This is an ecolodge in the jungle, so don't expect tv, blow dryers or showers with great water pressure. 2. The lodge is remotely located down 8 miles of a mostly dirt/rock road.Get an SUV, 4 wheel drive preferably, and you will have no problem. Whether you are renting 1 cabana or a group renting all 5 so you can have the entire resort to yourself, the MBJL is one of those places that makes a vacation truly special.Truly the way a vacation should be. We want to go back to Belize just so we can return to the lodge. Thank u Ron, Al, Henry, Reuben, Eduardo"

  • Good base to enjoy what is to see in Belize and Guatemala

    "This is a lovely property, very nicely done, central to the business district and easy to find places to eat, drink and obtain transportation. The property is very well equipped, comfortable and quiet. The property manager was very nice and helpful. It does get very hot in the areas without A/C. I am a person who enjoys the heat, but it was warm even for me. A few good fans would solve this problem as it gets much cooler in the evenings."

  • Great location, wonderful house

    "We spent a week in this house - 4 adults and 2 young children. The house is great, and Consuelo (the housekeeper) was wonderful, even sticking around late into the evening and meeting us down at the main road when our arrival flight was delayed. Katia (the owner) was extremely helpful and responsive with recommendations for local activities, groceries, etc. As others have noted, you feel like you're off in you're own hilltop location while staying here, but it's only about 10 minutes to San Ignacio/Saint Elena. There are all kinds of activities within a 1-hour drive of here, everything from incredible Mayan ruins to caves to river tubing adventures and more. And the pool is fantastic to have at your disposal on a hot day (all of them while we were there!). As others have noted you will probably want to have a 4WD car (or at least one with pretty good clearance as the driveway is bumpy) but you are going to want one of those for virtually anything you're going to do in Belize. We loved our stay and would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks Katia and Consuelo!"
