My daughter and I stayed at Maruba last November and had an excellent time. Our driver was waiting for us at the airport and stopped by the supermarket on the way to the resort. The drive in was excellent. You get to see Belize in it's "rawest' form. It's not poverty and garbage as one reviewer mentioned. I suggest that...

My wife and I planned a trip to Belize for our honeymoon and decided to spend 4 nights in the jungle and 4 days of the beach. We found a groupon for Maruba and decided to give it a try.

The service was impecable, starting with pickup from the airport. Everyone was friendly and extremely helpful. On the days we planned tours, we got a personal wakeup call, where the person took our breakfast order so its ready when we were, allowing us enough time to enjoy before we headed out for the day. Personal tour guides that truly goes...

My two girlfriends and I went to Maruba after a few days in Placencia. We regretted not staying where we were. The good: Maruba's grounds are beautiful. Our room was lovely and comfortable. The spa treatments we received were good, the best was the manicure believe it or not. The food was very good for breakfast and lunch but dinner...

As much as The Resort would like to make every day a perfect experience somethings like Mother Nature are beyond its control. Unexpectedly early one morning there was thick fog mixed with smoke from a nearby brush fire and these were the only guest which made it an issue. Several offers were made to remedy the situation and the guest...

I booked the Maruba Resort to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. We traveled with our young adult daughters and a boyfriend. I had been in contact with Melonie in order to book airport transfers, a cave tubing adventure and a birthday dinner for my husband. When we arrived we had the warmest welcome! She had everything arranged for us and...

I have no clue how this place has received so much positive feedback. Our time there was awful and we left early as a result. First off, the only reason we picked Maruba was because their website clearly shows a woman in a mud bath. When inquiring about the mud bath we were informed they do not have a mud...

Despite the exotic Mood Mud images, Maruba Resort Jungle Spa is not a hedonistic vacation hide away, It is an Adventure Spa and Resort. The bar in the lounge looks like it is out of a "Flintstone's" Movie Set with bar stools made from trees stumps; the bar is made from rock quarried from ancient Mayan Burial Tomb and the...

We stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The decor and ambiance are so unique, it was totally different than anywhere I've...

We spent three nights at Maruba before going to San Pedro for the beach. This place was definitely unique and unlike anything we had experienced in the past. - The service was exceptional. Melony (the owner) is always around and whenever she sees you she stops to ask if you need anything. All of the other wait staff was wonderful...
