It was a bit tricky to find this place when driving, you have to look for the sign on the main road so you don't miss your turn. After long drive we arrived at a beautiful property with spacious, comfortable, clean accommodation albeit a little old fashion interior & decors like from 1980s motels. Food was good, home-style, and plenty....

I loved this hotel because it wasn't your typical lodge. The rooms are in need of some new paint but were very clean and roomy. The staff were amazing, very friendly and warm. The restaurant didn't have a menu but you will not be disappointed in the food. It is fresh cooked with the local produce and is so delicious....

My wife and I stayed at Banana Bank for a few days in December 2014, and we loved it. The owners and employees were warm and friendly, the food was excellent, the grounds were beautiful, and overall it was just a very relaxing and enjoyable time. We didn't make it out horseback riding, but just sitting by the pool was...

Just amazing telescope / observatory! Rooms tacky like cheap hourly rental lovers hotel. Food tastey, service excellent. Cool jaguar in captivity as well as few birds. Well outside of Belmopan, to far for quick into town for dinner / lunch.

I have been to the Banana Bank many times over the years. It is one of my favorite places on earth. Right in the middle of a Belize type rain forest is this gem of hospitality, charm and peace. You cannot go wrong here. John and Carolyn Carr are legends. They settled this piece 41 years ago, carving a quality...

We just returned from 4 awesome days at Banana Bank. It is a fun and magical place, ideal for people who know the difference between traveling and being a tourist. Even though it had been almost 4 years since our last trip to the ranch, the Carrs and everyone else welcomed us back like family. They even surprised me with...

We stayed here one night. Because of the incredible surroundings we decided to stay one more day and night. The way the owners have breakfast, lunch and diner is so fantastic and cosy! No menu but they serve everybody the same meal (they do consider and change if you are vegetarian or have special wishes about your meals! The staff...

This review was for a day-trip dining and horseback riding only; we were staying somewhere else when we came upon this. Trip was fantastic. John, who owns the place, greeted us both at the stable and in the restaurant -- very proud and happy about his establishment. I've taken trail rides all my life, and this was no ordinary one...

We started coming to Banana Bank over 12 years ago and have returned nearly every year since then. The Carr family makes you feel like part of their family. The minute you arrive you feel instant relaxation. No trip to Belize would be complete without visiting Banana Bank! (be sure and ask for their beef empanadas, yum!!) Until next time!

Casual, stress-free atmosphere due to the attentive and courteous staff as well as the owners. Very relaxed and friendly. Touring the Carr farm, visiting Tikal and Xunantunich are very interesting side trips for any non-rider.The horses were excellent, healthy, strong and very responsive. They carried a 70 year old, 225 lb. rider with little effort. Riding such horses at night...
