Nigel and the staff offered warm hospitality. Beautiful lodge by a river with multiple waterfalls and swimming holes. Great tours available and superb food. Riverside villa was heavenly. Wedding was perfectly executed with beautiful flowers and amazing disco dancing. Some of the staff were amazing break dancers. Outstanding service!

I don't know where to start because I have so many great things to say about this place and especially the staff. We booked out the entire resort for my wedding last week. Now, according to them they had never dealt with a wedding of this size (31 people) but you would never have known. I had no idea what...

A really good experience. The room and the area were full of the sound of rushing water from the waterfalls. The staff were both professional but also relaxed and fun. Went down to the river at the bottom for a relaxing afternoon and got the funicular back up get fun

Everything about Gaia is incredible; from the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we returned to the airport I felt like a VIP. The service at Gaia is beyond excellent, they arranged everything for us from our tours to our transfers to the airport. We did not have to worry about a thing! The food...

Just back from a wonderful visit to Belize and spent three nights at the Gaia in a mountain view cabana. It was an awesome place! I highly recommend renting a car so that you can save on the transfers, have freedom to do your own excursions and save some money! The staff was great! The food was awesome (better than...

Nigel and his staff are incredible hosts, the food was great, water fall and river were beautiful and the room was very comfortable. We did the nature walk down to the water twice, be sure to grab a bike and ride over to the Big Rock falls.

The bumpy dusty but scenic ride brings you to the actual end of the road and you enter a mountain retreat where it is impossible not to be impressed. Both the view and sound of the waterfalls soothes while every comfort has been considered and in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature. Nestled away huts/cabins offer full privacy while there...

This place is incredible, the road to get is quite an adventure because for about 1:40 min you are driving off road- we knew it would be remote, just did not realize how bumpy the road would be so the vehicle we used was simply not appropriate. There is so much to do - five sisters falls is beautiful to...

This place is awesome! We stayed in the riverfront villa and loved every second of it! The staff is great, very attentive to our needs whether it was privacy our picking us up at the villa and driving us up to the lodge for a meal. We enjoyed having a full kitchen to cook our own meals. I would have...
