Jungle Getaway

4.6 on May 22, 2016

The room was much better than I expected. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The tours were terrific. Every night was a different menu. We were disappointed that the chocolate making workshop had to be postponed to the day after we checked out. Terrific coffee with breakfast!


Highly Recommend

We spent 4 days at MML. The service is impeccable as all staff as well as the owner were friendly and attentive to our needs. They definitely go above and beyond. We ate all our meals at MML and all were both unique and delicious. Everything served was homemade using fresh locally-grown food and spices. I liked their website as it allowed me to create our own tours based on our unique interests and each tour exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend MML


Great stay at Maya Mountain - friendly staff and delicious food

4.0 on April 04, 2016

We loved our two night stay at Maya Mountain. The food was delicious and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We booked our ATM tour through the hotel so everything was very easy - they packed us a delicious lunch for the day. Highly recommend this place. We walked into San Ignacio one day - about 20-30 minute walk.


Eco-resort with delightful cabanas and private hammocks

4.2 on April 04, 2016

The staff was incredible, the food delicious and the backdrop beautiful. Our cabana was pretty simple, but delightful. There was a 15-20 minute hike around the resort. The food was made fresh with local sources (we didn't eat dinner there, but had breakfast in the mornings which was a perfect way to start the day). The pool? Underwhelming, above-ground pool. But still nice to soak in after a day of hiking/site-seeing. Everyone was incredibly helpful/friendly and helped us out with our tours. They don't sell alcohol on site. They do have refrigerators that you can store beer in that you can buy at a store in town. This is not a party resort. Quiet hour starts at 9pm.


Beautiful eco-friendly local supporting resort in the jungle's of San Ignacio

4.2 on March 24, 2016

The Lodge was beautiful and located above the town - not far. We had our own car, but there were cabs that would pick you up and take you into town if you needed. Tour companies picked guests up regularly too. Breakfast was delicious (addtl charge) and came with fresh juice, fresh fruit and toast. They have specials each morning or you can choose off the menu. They were very accommodating. There was a nice 15-20 min hike around the property. The pool was a small above ground with a deck, but did the trick. This is NOT a party resort. They do not sell alcohol on the property and it's quiet time after 9pm. We bought our own beer in town and stored it in the refrigerator in our room. There was also a community refrigerator in the dining area. The people were incredibly helpful and friendly.


Love the Maya Mountain Lodge!

4.8 on February 28, 2016

Maya Mountain Lodge is a GREAT place to stay. Our experience was wonderful and the staff friendly and professional. It is far enough away from town to enjoy the peace and quite but close enough to walk to town. The grounds are absolutely beautiful! Can't wait to go back!!!

A gem in the jungle

5 on January 29, 2016

Bart has worked for over 30 years to create a truly unique lodging and dining experience in Cayo, Belize. The lodge is so peaceful and well run with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The food is wonderful with a nod towards the various ethnic groups in Belize with a different cuisine 5 nights a week.
