Cave’s Branch is a spectacular place! But remember, it is a rain forest with everything that entails, such as …. Rain everyday on and off…. it’s hot and humid, there are lots and lots of bugs and critters. We loved it! We stayed in the canopy rooms and they were wonderful, up high in the trees. There are no windows....

This place was awesome! Keep in mind it's actually in the jungle, so resources are very limited. We had no air conditioning, no electrical outlets in our bungalow, poor lighting in our bungalow, but we knew all that coming in. The lodge itself had everything we needed. Excellent meals, internet access if you needed it, a nice gift shop, a...

My husband and I stayed here as our 3rd stop during our first trip to Belize over the Christmas holiday. Cave's Branch was such a step up from our prior two accommodations that we finally relaxed and let the staff guide us through the experience. The food was really good and in abundance. Pace yourself when eating the first course...

We loved our 2 nights at Caves Branch Lodge. The food, staff and accommodation were excellent. Meal times were very sociable and the gardens were spectacular. Unfortunately we did not use any of the excursions as our timetable didn't match the Lodge's but we went cave tubing with Vitalino Reyes who collected us at the Lodge and returned us at...

This resort is one of a kind. The rooms are very clean and unique; the staff are extremely welcoming and helpful and they provide top notch service. I would especially like to give credit to Anthony, Pedro, Danny, Carmen and Carlos who made every day entertaining and fun!! It was a wonderful Christmas holiday!!

This place really is stunning. On the river, lovely pool and everything is in the jungle so you do feel isolated. I would love to stay here again. Why then the average rating (actually I changed it to very good)? Some of the staff are lovely. Others were a bit rude. The manager made some snarky comments yet pulled them...

Oh my gosh!!! Amazing! and Unbelievable!! I think those were the only words out of my mouth for the first few days that we were at Caves Branch!

We just left Caves Branch this morning after 4 nights. We stayed in a rivertop the first 3 nights and a canopy the last night. We did the cave tubing/zip line the first day, then the waterfalls, and lastly the black hole drop. If you are on the fence about booking a trip here, don't hesitate! The accomodations were clean,...

It's not often (actually never before) that I talk more about a place I stay than the actual destination but I loved this place! We had a few weather related issues that delayed us but they were really accommodating to ensure we could move our reservation back so we wouldn't miss much of our stay. It is evident this is...

First off, I did not stay at this lodge but it did look really nice, it's right on the river. I did however take three tours with them. We did two caving tours, some zip lining and made a trip to the zoo. All activities were top notch. Our guides, Patrick, Esperanza and Julio were really great. They were knowledgeable...
