Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I spent a night here with my husband on our honeymoon. We loved the quiet and rustic atmosphere. The little cabin was perfect non-resort experience. Pickup from the airport was free and there was someone there to take us from the resort to dinner by boat. Keep in mind that it requires a boat to leave the resort. This place is great for someone looking for a different experience.

Due to our airline's change of schedule, we had to overnight near the airport instead of traveling to our destination.  The thought of spending even one night in a generic motel was depressing, but a quick search turned up River Bend Resort within 5 minutes of the airport.  Their responses to our questions were extremely prompt and helpful:  Yes, they could pick us up and ferry us across the river even though our flight didn't arrive until 5 pm.  Our driver/boatman was happy to stop at the well-stocked local grocery for us to grab some provisions before checking in.  Our arrival at the location and our cabana was a very pleasant surprise: we immediately knew we were back in Belize. Our private, comfortable and quiet wooden cabana in the traditional Belizean coastal style included a large screened porch and was right on the river, amid a lovely natural setting.  These aren't fancy, modern cabins – but ours was clean, the bed was comfortable, the AC worked (though we didn't use it much), and the kitchenette was a nice bonus. The boat was very nice, and the docks were safe and well-maintained. Both the personable manager and his assistant were available to address all our needs, including boating up river to pick up delicious take out dinners from a local restaurant.  We couldn't have been happier to settle in and rest (after traveling since 4 am). Bird watching the next morning with coffee in hand, and then enjoying the complimentary hot breakfast, started the next day perfectly. Our driver then boated us across the river and drove us directly to our car rental agency where we began our journey, happy and refreshed.  We enjoyed the setting and hospitality at River Bend so much that in the future, we'll try to stay longer and take a tour with them.  Thanks again for a lovely stay! /ps/ If you don't expect mosquitoes on a river in the tropics, you're lost.

My husband and I stayed here in early March 2022, and I have to say that it was a disappointment. The shower was stopped up and the bed was very uncomfortable. My husband, who is allergic to dust mites, had a pretty bad reaction to the bed. We'd been in Belize a week at that point, and had not been bitten by mosquitos, but this place was pretty buggy - I got a ton of bites just from being outdoors for a few minutes. The transport situation is strange: you have to catch a boat from a sketchy location across from the airport, and there's no food at the resort. We were taken after a large delay to a place (Rustic Korner) that we were assured was "great" but the food was average and the prices double the rest of our meals in Belize. There were cockroaches in the bathroom. The staff are very hardworking and friendly, but they seem super stretched; we felt sorry for them. Not recommended; there must be better options.

We are committed to making sure your stay is comfortable. We always appreciate feedback. We did a complete inspection of the cabana you stayed in and there were no signs of any bugs around or near or on bed or mattress. We exterminate bi weekly. We are a rustic jungle resort. As much as we fog and spray the grounds no see ums will get you throughout Belize. We encourage our guests to bring mosquito spray when you travel throughout our beautiful country. We have also decided we will be offering dinner options. And have spoke with the owner of the restaurant. Again we thank you for your feedback. Have a beautiful day. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on how we can improve

If you want to be a little adventurous and love the sounds of the jungle, this place is for you. I immediately fell in love with it. The Howler monkeys were the highlight. The owner Todd went out of his way for me. The grocery store is close. The cabins very comfortable, clean and air conditioned. Having my morning coffee in the screened in porch and listening to all the sounds and watching the huge variety of birds is right up my alley. I travel solo and I felt very safe. It has all the comforts but Internet and TV is in and out if there is a big wind or storm. Otherwise it worked good. There is a long boat or canoe race in March every year that goes down the river to Guatemala. That would be fun to watch from the property.

This is the second time I stay for a full week at River Bend Resort. This place is perfect to just relax and fish or go for full adventure. My girlfriends and I went cave tubing, zip lining, fishing, day trip to San Pedro for an all day golf cart adventure, snorkeling, fishing, shopping, dining out and dining in, swimming, and more, ALL ARRANGED BY THE RESORT STAFF. This was the most exciting adventurous trip. I also laid around doing nothing for 2 days. There were howler monkeys, birds of all kinds, very large iguanas and incredulity staff. My friends and I were very well entertained. The improvements to this already beautiful place made my stay even more comfortable. I highly recommend staying here as a base for your tours and fun. The old Belize River in itself is a learning experience. The ecology is full of many different trees, animals, full moons, I even saw the space station fly over. I can't wait to return. I love River Bend Resort and you will too. Renee

The staff at River Bend resort is super friendly ! Our room was clean and spacious. What we loved most about the place was the communal space. You could play pool, darts, wii, board games,... Or you could watch a movie or use some fishing gear to go catch some catfish. The breakfast was basic but very good. They offer a free ride from and to the airport. I would definitely recommend to stay here when just arriving or leaving Belize.

What an amazing place to stay. I traveled solo and was concerned but found I was so comfortable my entire visit at River bend. River bend was located across the river and to add to my comfort do you have to take a pontoon to cross the river to the resort. The resort is spotless the manager Ashley and the groundskeeper were on point throughout my entire stay. The rooms are spotless and they have done everything to make you feel safe throughout Covid. From hand sanitizing stations throughout the property and within the main house to constant sanitizing it made me feel like I had no worries. The groundskeeper Ludi was always available if I wanted to cross the river And I was able to go and enjoy meals at a wonderful restaurant rustic corner Ludi would drive me there and pick me up I never felt alone. I went on an amazing sunset river cruise everyone should do that!

River Bend Resort is located on the slowly flowing Belize River, so I was able to go fishing 24/7, from the shore, a few steps from my cabana, and I also went out in one of the boats upriver, and downriver near the sea. I wanted full relaxation on this trip - no tv, no internet - just relax and unplug from the world. This is the place to go. The staff on site were extremely courteous and generous, offering information for every question and driving me where I wanted to go - for free, in a van or a boat (of course I tipped) including to the local market for groceries. English seemed to be the spoken language there, and my American cash was accepted everywhere. There are ATMS nearby if needed. There are several local restaurants I tried out, one of them being down along the river, so of course we drove there in the boat. The side trip to the Rum Factory had a nice historical touch, and has a free rum-tasting bar as well as plenty of souvenirs to take home. On the sunset cruise, Ludi took me up the river where I saw and HEARD the howler monkeys in the trees. They sound like a T-Rex from Jurassic Park! It was so cool. I also spotted many giant iguanas in the trees as well as a crocodile sunning itself on a log. I felt like I was in another world for four nice days. The facilities and amenities were everything I wanted. Bed, bathroom, fresh bottled water, a kitchen with dishes and so forth, even coffee and coffee pot, air conditioning, fishing rods to use, etc. They have darts and a pool table in the main house as well as a washer and dryer for use. I went solo this first time, but this would be a perfect couples trip destination as well. What's not to like? I am DEFINITELY going back.

This resort sits across a small river so you know you will be safe and at peace the whole time you're there. There's a service that will take you across and back at any time, and at no charge. Each room was cleaned, and has a sanitizer station outside. The staff is incredible and very helpful. Ashlee, made us feel at home and had answers to all of our questions. Ludi complimented this by driving us around wherever we needed to go and taking us on small treks.

We had been talking about visiting this resort for a few months and finally made it in July. We wanted to take advantage of the local special for Belizean’s during the country’s lockdown. It was to include all meals, internet, bottle of wine and river cruise. We booked with Wilson who is the property manager and is an amazing caring individual. You have to cross the river to get to the resort. We were met my the boat’s captain who is also a very nice man. Once you get him to talking, he is a very interesting man as well. We were thinking that this was going to be a nice relaxing weekend since we were the only ones at the resort. We eventually made it to our room and were starving. The resort has partnered with Rustic Corner restaurant to provide meals for it patrons. The menu we were provided via text before arrival was not the same menu we could choose from at the resort. Also, we quickly found out that no beverages (not even non-alcoholic) or dessert was included in the special. However, it was suppose to be an all inclusive weekend but now we find out that we must pay for all but the main course which was a selection of 3 entrees. None of the options were vegetarian or vegan. We ordered our entrees and attempted to settle into the room. The first thing we noticed was the tv had black lines throughout it and was very difficult to watch. We tried to get internet and found out that the internet doesn’t reach pass cabana 5 and we were at number 7. We were told we have to go to the main office to use internet. We asked to change rooms and were told we would have to change rooms in the morning. They also had no other tv to provide us with for that night. So, we eat and settled in for bed. We went to turn off the television and found it didn’t turn off. It had to be unplugged which was probably why it was on when we reached the room. The room was adequate for a weekend stay and was a very nice size with a full kitchen. The next day at breakfast we were told that we couldn’t order breakfast from the restaurant menu. We had fruit and bread provided my the property manager. Next, we found out that the resort would not be providing lunch as described in their online advertisements. We also were told we would not be able to change rooms and there was no other television that could be exchanged for the inoperable one in the room. To add injury to insult, the property manager called the owner and she didn’t want to honor our all inclusive dinner from the restaurant. The property manager actually made us a shrimp dinner and brought it to our room, again with no beverage or dessert. We have never been so disappointed in a business that lures you in with tempting advertisement and then refuse to honor their agreements. We did take the river tour with the captain which was enjoyable. And the bottle of wine that was promised us, ended up being a cheap $5USD bottle of local wine. Our overall experience was save your $$$. This place was not COVID-19 ready or honorable in their agreement with their patrons. You can enjoy a relaxing time at home for far cheaper with a working television and internet connection.

We are so very sorry you were not pleased. This special was for for one meal and a glass of win and a sunset cruise starting at 210$ us. I have searched our advertising online and no where did any of our advertising state all inclusive? We have during Corvid tried to do a specials for the domestic traveler. As well as, continue to support the local community. At the time of your arrival we had just received a notice from the BTB regarding the requirements for international travelers , the application and training had not even been given to us at that time. We are proud to have completed and have made all of the upgrades to safely accept international travelers through the Gold Standard and Safe corridor enhanced cleaning and safety protocols. I would like to add our Manager said you arrived a day early and we agreed he would cook you a lovely meal in order to accommodate for the confusion. Our guest always come first .Our breakfast has always been advertised and local fruits and breads again we strive to support the local economy especially during this time. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts and are thankful you let us know that the cable boxes needed to be replaced after months of no use, our Monkeys like to climb on our lines.;-) We will take all of your recommendations into consideration and make sure we work on very clear communication. And as always we will continue to listen and make positive improvements at River Bend!
