We stayed for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon trip and would definitely recommend to any couples wanting a romantic place to stay. The lodge were really helpful answering questions and organizing a pick up from the Guatemalan border before our trip. A driver was waiting for us at the boarder when we reached the Belize side in a brand new land cruiser.
The journey to the lodge from wherever you are travelling is quite bumpy at it is at the end of the reserve road, however it is definitely worth it.
We had a waterfall view cabana and it was lovely, especially falling asleep at night to the sound of the water.
The food was great and the cocktails were the best of anywhere on our 3 week trip.
I did a yoga class which was held down by the waterfalls, I am not sure if you could have a better setting! We also took a guiding tour of the surrounding reserve with a visit to a cave, our guide was very knowledgeable of the local area, nature and mayan history in the area. It was definitely my husbands highlight of our trip.
The only downside we found was the cost especially for things once we arrived at the lodge. However this may be due to the current £ exchange rate and the fact that we had been in Guatemala before which was definitely cheaper!
