Welcome to the jungle
Property is a unique and excellently laid out jungle habitat. We took advantage of many excursions and activities on and off property. Staff was very helpful and the food was well prepared and fresh. HVAC was a ceiling fan and a blanket, which wasn’t an issue during our stay.
Hidden gem in Western Belize
Very beautiful resort in western Belize. Perfect place to disconnect from a routine. The lodges are very nicely decorated and very clean. The hotel offers lots of activities such as a day trip to Tikal (Maya ruins) but you can stay in a resort and enjoy activities there such as river tubing or horseback ride. The food is delicious and you can choose for example between a Guatemalan restaurant or a dinner in their organic garden. The staff is extremely friendly and kind which is the biggest asset of this beautiful hotel. I hope I could come back one day.
Had a simply wonderful time. The lodge was relaxing but we were quite entertained with excursions and saw plenty of wildlife and learned some vital history of the Americas. Absolutely worth the effort and expense. Highly recommended.
Once in a lifetime experience
We spent the first 5 days of our honeymoon at Blancaneaux, then left for their sister property for our final 5 days. I can not express enough how amazing the staff members are! The best service I have ever seen. The food was OUTSTANDING to say the least. Most of their vegetables and fruits are grown on site. I highly recommend doing some of the tours and get a massage! The best massage my husband and I have ever had! We will for sure be back!
Mountain Lodge Hideaway
What a find! Nestled deep and remotely in the Mountain Pine Reserve, it is the place to go to unwind and unplug. The attention to detail, while still being un fussy is it’s charm. We were greeted at the airport by Eddie our transport who regaled us with Belizian history and fun facts. The drive was a great way to be introduced to this section of beautiful Belize. I loved that this is remote enough that you are on a dirt road,no highway here! Arriving at Blancaneaux we were greeted with a delicious cocktail and welcoming smiles. We toured the organic garden, with the master Gardner Elizer and harvested vegetables with the chef Isidora who then fixed an exquisite meal for us with the fresh picked harvest. We will be dreaming about the curried vegetables for a long time! George prepared special cocktails for us with the fresh herbs. We spent a day touring the Barron Creek cave in a canoe with an exceptional guide Francisco, who was knowledgeable and rightly proud of Belizian and Maya history. The cave experience was breathtaking. We felt so fortunate to have seen this wonder. Hats off to Belize for keeping this unspoiled. We lazed by the pool and then had a sumptuous Guatemalan meal. So happy this restaurant was open! Be sure to sample the sopa de tortilla and fresh salad. After greeting the morning with a coffee service, listening to the birds we headed to the main restaurant for a chilaquilles breakfast. Our favorite. Fueled and renewed we went horseback riding and took a short hike to the Big Rock waterfall. The guide Randolph, was so helpful to me with my painful knee, he made sure I was safe and able to participate in the hike. His kindness will not be forgotten. Along the way we learned much about plants and wildlife. A true field biologist guide! So much to do and so little time! We loved the little casita we were in, overlooking the river. Choices were to swim in the pool or the river, or just snooze in the hammock. The staff were so kind and friendly. The rooms impecable,assuring every need was met. Can’t wait to come back and explore more of this beautiful area.
