My family and I stayed here in January 2017, and had a wonderful time. We were put up in the house that is somewhat separated from the rest of the resort. The house is built with beautiful local wood, architecturally impressive, and full of large windows that looked out on the surrounding jungle. House needs a little TLC, but overall...

Crystal Paradise was our first stop on our Belize vacation as we wanted to get a taste for the 'jungle' side of Belize. We had booked our trip and accommodations very early in the year so had some time to look through all the activities that the lodge offered and Carla was very responsive via email to all our questions...

We came here for the new year to get away from the city. Weather was wonderful. 61F in the night. No air condition needed. Hard to get up in the morning with such great weather. Wonderful food from the cooks. Birds all around the property welcoming you every morning. Just 15 minutes away from San Ignacio. Will be back again.

I had a wonderful stay here in the summer of 2016. The hosts were very friendly and addressed any need that you had. The food was delicious! The rooms were very comfortable. The property is beautiful and is close to the ATM caves and other ancient sites. Highly recommend!

Crystal Paradise is a comfortable and affordable base for exploring Western Belize. Set in the rain forest, numerous birds and animals are visible from the large deck every morning. The family that runs it are really friendly and great cooks, preparing tasty, traditional Belizean dishes for breakfast and dinner. The honor bar is reasonably priced.

It has a bathroom with a shower and a veranda with chairs and a hammock with garden view. The breakfast and the other meals are excluxed but very much and delicious. The food is homemade...

We stayed in Crystal Paradise for two days with a tour full of high school kids. The rooms were very well appointed, clean, with thatched roofs. The food was in the main hall, served family style. The beans and jacks were amazing. We used this hotel as the jump off point for cave tubing and zip lining. It was not...

I spent several days at this resort last February and can give a very positive review for Crystal Paradise Resort. The grounds are lovely and the staff very helpful.

The resort is a bit out of the way but that made it quiet and relaxing. Their staff was fantastic, especially the guides Eric and Oscar. The food was good and there was always someone around to try to help in any way.
