We very much enjoyed our 4 days at duPlooys, and we definitely wished we could have stayed longer. We did the meal package and booked our trips through duPlooys. The meals were absolutely wonderful, especially the breads. The ingredients are fresh and delicious. The guides and drivers duPlooy's picked for us were all terrific and were happy to answer the...

Hello, Thanks for your review of duPlooy's and especially for recommending that people roam around the property. After 26 years I still love it here and enjoy, in particular, an evening walk through the gardens or a quiet swim or tube ride down the river. Judy duPlooy

Our stay in Belize to visit Mayan ruins and the river area was outstanding. The staff at duPlooy's was very efficient and friendly. We booked our adventures separately, but should have gotten the all inclusive. Our friend traveled with us and had the adjoining bedroom with couch and queen bed. Our room was big with two queen bed, and the...

Thanks so much for your review of duPlooy's and apologies for taking so long to respond. I'm glad you had a great time and hope that you will return. Our packages do not include entrances to sites unless you have an all-inclusive package. We do not include them since there is such a large difference from one to the other...

My husband and I spend a week at duPlooys and thoroughly enjoyed our (first ever!) stay in a jungle eco-lodge. The staff at duPlooys is exceptional. All very professional yet personable. Judy, the owner of duPlooys came around almost daily and inquired about guests' well-being, or to chat. A nice touch! The variety of dishes offered in the dining room...

Thanks for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed the jungle. When you bring the grandchildren, let me know and I'll tell you the trip favorites of my grandchildren. Isn't it amazing that a property can be organic, in the tropics and yet have virtually no biting insects? This is because there are so many birds, lizards, frogs, etc that...

Arrived in a rainstorm. It was a good thing that we had a driver from the hotel pick us up at Belize International airport, otherwise we would have never found DuPlooy's. The owner, Judy, is actively involved overseeing the day-to-day operations. She greets all her guests at morning breakfast. You cannot ask for better service from the main desk. Everyone...

Thanks for your review. Since you were a last minute booking and you stayed in the only space we had left, you can hardly blame us for the room being too big or for the unseasonal weather.

Thanks for your review of duplooy's. I'm glad you had a good time in spite of the unseasonal weather. The rains only stop you from doing things when there are flood situations and of course, it's impossible to predict weather anywhere any more. At least it's not cold here!
