We stayed here for 2 nights (myself and my partner in our 20s and my parents in their 60s) whilst travelling through Belize. The accommodation was very comfortable - our cabanas were the largest of the 3 lodges we stayed at in Belize and had beautiful river views. There is lots to do for all ages - tubing & canoeing...

Thank you all for choosing to stay with us. The majority of visitors still make their arrangements way in advance and those like you who "wing it" are a small minority. The fact that you made a last minute reservation and were happy with what you found can give encouragement to others. Our staff thank you for your kind comments... More

We stayed one night as part of a tour package. Scott, the host was very friendly and accommodating. Our cottage had air-conditioning which was wonderful given the unseasonable heat wave. The other tour members had well appointed cabanas with real thatched roofs. The ceiling fans kept them reasonably comfortable. They all mentioned being visited by interesting creatures; geckos, fireflies, spider.... More

The Lodge and grounds are lovely, and the room was nice. However, it was overpriced for what it was. We had dinner at the Lodge - a hefty $40US/person - which left us feeling ripped off. The food was mediocre and bland and WAY OVERPRICED!! A plate with dry pasta, vegetables and some shrimp on top does not equal $40US.... More

The Lodge at Big Falls is a beautiful, serene place to recharge, eat great food, swim, bird watch, agouti watch, chat with other guests, tube around the property on the river, watch fireflies and then fall asleep to the sound of cicadas and geckos.

The Lodge at Big Falls s beautiful and serene. There is a small river circling the venue and trees, flowers, and birds are prolific. The cottages are clean, well-maintained and comfortable in an idyllic setting. The proprietors are friendly and knowledgeable about the area and its attractions.

We spent 3 nights in a lovely "cabana" at this lodge which is located about 30 minutes from Punta Gorda, but is light years from the noise and crowds of the town. The grounds are beautifully kept, and the only noise you hear is the chirping of the birds and the rush of the nearby river. Everyone who works there... More
