Great experience

4.6 on March 13, 2015

We had an excellent stay at Maya Mountain and we have been taken care of since arriving at Belize Airport. The lodge is set in green jungle grounds with several types of trees and birds, while still very close to town. We stayed in one of the double bedrooms and, although a bit small and old, they are still nice and clean. The lodge organized all our tours with great professionality and we enjoyed all of them - Tikal, ATM and Barton Creek. Elmer in particular was great in this. The meals were all homecooked and we could taste different types of delicious Belizean dishes. Overall a great experience and we recommend it!


convenient location very helpful and friendly staff

Good location close to town, if you have any sensitivity to mould or dust avoid the thatched roof. The food was good and the tours were wonderful.


Diamond in the Rough

Our Maya Mountain Lodge stay was excellent from beginning to end. After several delays with our aircraft, the Lodge Staff took it upon themselves to reschedule our day trips and meals at no cost to us. The rooms are small, but very clean and comfortable. The food was incredible as well. I cannot say enough about our stay there. Highly recommended.


Excellent Service

My one night stay at Maya Mountain Lodge felt too short. I had requested a cooking class experience when I booked the hotel, but my class never made it onto their schedule. Instead of informing me that it couldn't be done, the wonderful folks at Maya Mountain Lodge bent over backwards to make it happen on short notice. I'd definitely come back!


Excellent time at Maya Mountain

The staff was very accommodating, helping arrange for adventures and trips to San Ignacio. Meals were very good, including packed lunches for day trips away from Maya Mountain. It was a wonderful location to stay with easy access to many of the Mayan ruins and other adventure activities.


Wonderful visit

Experience makes a difference! Others may promote, but Maya Mountain delivers great cuisine, fantastic tours, and those personal services that make a traveler feel at home. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

This resort run by an nice American couple is a beautiful place. You are like a guest to the family. The meals are all home made which you can not get in restaurants. Located a few miles away from the Town San Ignacio. If you don have a vehicle, you might have to take the meal plan and tours with the resort. The tours are great but a little bit pricey.
