We greatly enjoyed our four-day stay at Chaa Creek Resort , an ideal way to enjoy nature while being pampered at a delightful location by an immensely dedicated and caring staff. The rooms were spacious and spotless. Even though the garden cottages (where we stayed) have adjacent rooms, we were never bothered by noise from next door.
The grounds were very large and well-maintained. We greatly enjoyed the meals; although the menu was limited we were particularly pleased with the different (usually regional) specialty offered at every meal (and on occasion when we didn’t care for the special, the chef prepared a substitute meal that was to our liking). As others have said, you can just rest at the lovely infinity pool or keep busy with the many available activities. For example, this is an excellent location for birdwatching, and early morning birding walks with very knowledgable guides are offered every day. We had pre-scheduled a guided tour to Caracol (the largest Mayan site in Belize) and the Rio Frio cave.

Although the drive was long and on unpaved roads for a good portion, we enjoyed the experience a lot. We had a chance to speak with Mick Fleming, who with his wife founded and own Chaa Creek and seem to be readily available to hear your compliments — or, if you should have them, complaints. It is a tribute to them and the staff that the Lodge is ideal for a broad spectrum of vacationers seeking to enjoy nature in any of a number of different ways.
