If you are considering staying at the Maruba resort...GO PACK YOUR BAGS! We have traveled to many countries but this was our first time in Belize. We had such an amazing trip and it was highlighted by our stay at the Maruba Spa. We will be back and this time hope to stay longer than our 4 days!!!!!!

et me put it this way, if you like 90s decor, black lights, incense, and bugs being zapped during dinner... this place is for you! Actually, our driver from one of the Francis Ford Coppola resorts, dropped us off... laughed, and said, "good luck here" Main complaints: 1.) The owner was rude 2.) Our room flooded, they had to move...

One experience of the beginning of Rainy Season and in May 2012 our area of Belize was hit with 50+ inches of rain in 1 month, several nights with 5-6 inches rain and one night with 13 inches rain. The culvert that passed under the Old Northern Highway collapsed and the resort flooded. Within days the resort contracted an excavator...

My husband and I enjoyed the signature suite. We loved our room and the privacy it afforded. It was a treat to be handed a complimentary rum punch when we arrived. We loved the layout, the pools and all the private places that you could hang out. We also took advantage of their trips to lamanai and cave tubbing. We...

My husband and I traveled to Belize in December 2012. Maruba was our first stop and we loved every moment. The staff was very friendly and very accomodating. The rum punch is awesome! The pools are lovely. We stayed in a signature suite (worth the extra money) and it was absolutely beautiful. I was worried about insects, but there were...

For what this place is, it's great. It is about 45 minutes down a half dirt road into the Belizean jungle. This place offered a unique jungle resort feel and offered some of the best tours. Good customer service. Make sure you are on "Belize time" and take it easy. Thats what this place is all about--but still prompt with...

None of the research we did would have kept us from choosing Maruba. The photos on the Internet gave the impression that Maruba was a special place. What the photos did not reveal, however, was how badly Maruba was in need of a makeover. Our room was in a building that we thought was the dormitory for employees when we...

At Maruba we want each guest to have the best experiences possible and consistently check on guests satisfaction and comfort whether it be getting a comfortable night's sleep, dinning, or spa and tours. Had the guest/reviewer informed staff or management during their stay they did not like the room and had other issues, we would have done what we could...

My wife and I spent 3 days at the maruba resort for my 33rd birthday. Belize in general was an off the grid type of adventure which we are both novices at when it comes to travel outside of the 48.

In the middle of the jungle is this amazing oasis with everything you could ask for. Great restaurant, good drinks, a spa, and beautiful grounds. The room was great and we were even upgraded to a room with a hot tub, which was awesome. I highly recommend!

I visited Maruba as one of ten people on the second half of an "adventure" package. The grounds are lovely but it's rather far from anything else so once you're there you're there to stay. Lunch was expensive for mediocre food. All four people at my table received cold food almost an hour after we ordered and we would have...

This review addresses several other experiences from Lunch visitors to Maruba and unfortunately did not meet expectations. Maruba is a resort and many activities at the resort listed on the website are for hotel guest only like the pools, mineral baths, and other activities. The waitress enforced the pool use which caused issue and that was the problem as it...
