It is set above Belize's Macal River in the midst of a private 365-acre nature reserve with a panoramic view of the Maya Mountains and lush Caribbean rainforest.

"Chaa Creek is the definition of paradise. After the 2 hour drive from the airport, (including several miles down a dirt access road) we had no idea what to expect, but when we arrived, we realized we had found paradise. The grounds are beautiful. The cottage we stayed in was large and very tastefully decorated."

"This Eco Lodge is Heaven. From the rooms to the service, everything is top notch. We arrived at the airport to find our driver ready to take us to the resort. Upon arrival we were over taken by the beauty of the property and our room."

"We wanted to take a trip out of the ordinary for our one year anniversary, and we got what we asked for!! I picked Chaa Creek originally for its eco-tourism and environmental conservation awards, but what really stood out was their outstanding service! Any small request we had was fulfilled."

"We stayed here for few nights when travelling around Central America and can't wait to come back here again. The staff here are all extremely helpful, they even dried our trainers for us after we'd been out caving. The hotel is set in lush rainforest, filled with all kinds of fantastic wildlife, beautifully coloured birds and butterflies."

"This is the place to go for a jungle experience with pampering! The grounds are beautiful, the look is exotic but groomed. The lodges were excellent and the food was terrific. The staff was very helpful and attentive. We did excellent day trips and had delicious meals. This is a great place for four nights."

"We had a wonderful stay in a Treetop Suite at Chaa Creek. The decor in the room was stunning, with lots of dark hardwoods and colorful wall hangings. The wrap-around deck with outdoor tub was great. The sounds at night were fascinating! The ' Drink of the Day ' was always fun and refreshing."
