The lodge was a great place to organize tours from. The location allows you to be close to Tikal (we enjoyed 4 hours there) and the ATM, we were alone in the caves before all tourist groups came. The team will help find tours for you if you are solo so you can join up and enjoy what you want (most tours need 2 people to run). The owner even guided us with his car into town one night. The food is amazing and freshly prepared each day, you'll fall in love with the coffee :) The pool is small, but good for a refreshing dip. The rooms are plain but safe and you should honestly be spending your time exploring rather than keeping to your room anyway.

We purchased the all-inclusive adventure package and took advantage of daily tours. We were beyond impressed with all of our tours and tour guides, and so thankful to Maya Mountain for coordinating it all!! They made our vacation hassle and worry free, so we were able to really enjoy every minute of our time. Maya Mountain has so much to offer and we couldn't be happier with our decision to stay there!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
