We booked three nights beginning of March ,and because of the rain the road to the lodge was so muddy that we got stucked with our jeep for one hour . finally we got out and made it to the property . We paid more then 1200 Euros for a smallest room we stayed during our whole trip in Belize . The Terrace was very nice and the the location is wonderful , but the room small , the bathroom with a small shower and a tiny sink . You have one two seater sofa and a small table in the room .during the night we were able to hear the conversation of our next cottage neibourghs. The breakfast which was included was a bit of fruit and bread with marmalade . The a la cart bf was very nice . Only one restaurant was open per night while the other was closed . Because we planed trips from the hotel we were afraid that we would have problems to come back to the hotel because of the bad road . Talking to the receptionist we got no help at all instead they came over arrogant . Finally we were able to talk to the duty manager and cancelled two nights . And verbally were told that the two nights left would be paid back .7 weeks later still no payment no answer to the emails . I would not recommend to stay there . Even the location is nice , but we found a very nice hotel the next day for half the price and more friendly service
We rate this location as 5plus star!!
Beautiful cabanas overlooking a bubbly stream. Our 25th anniversery trip and was worth every penny. The staff were friendly and supportive. Extra details like turn down service in the evening was something we hadn't experienced before. While we were having dinner they would set up candles in our cabana and turn back the bedding giving it that extra special romantic appeal. This was done every night. The restaurant food was very nice and we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. Our server Marty was super friendly and helpful. Each day they let us take a cooler of ice as we left with our 4x4 rental truck to do our own explorign of the area. It was easy to explore on your own. Jungle roads were marked better than the main highways. No chance of getting lost. Front desk Irene, every morning was attentive to ask what our plans were and any way she could help. If I ever come back it will be Blancaneaux Lodge for certain!
Excellent personal service and food
We stayed at Blancaneaux for 7 nights to combine relaxation with some adventures. Our cabana was spacious with a screened in porch and hammock. We had coffee and tea delivered to our cabana early each morning then at 9am we went to the open-air restaurant for the continental breakfast, which was more than ample! We had several dinners there and all of the food was very good. We hiked to Big Rock Falls, and we lingered so long that they sent some staff to look for us! That is how carefully they are aware of and serve their guests! We took their tour to Caracol and the guide was excellent! The rest of the time we lounged at the pool or stayed in the main lodge because that was the best place to get WiFi service. 90% of the time we could not get it in our cabana and it was the second cabana from the main lodge! We run a business so we had to spend a lot of time in the main lodge to catch up on emails. Several times it even went down in the lodge and we had to ask them to reboot the router. The pool had good WiFi reception but it is not a very attractive area. It is in great need of updating and beautification. And the chairs are very uncomfortable for reading. I had to put 2 towels behind my back to sit up straight enough to read comfortably. The unreliable WiFi (which definitely distracted from our enjoyment) and the pool area are the reasons I gave them only 3 out of 5 stars.
Breathtaking Beauty in the Jungle
We spent three nights at Blancaneaux lodge and cannot wait to return. We had a luxury cabana with private pool and outdoor shower which was incredible, from falling asleep listening to the howler monkeys to awaking to parrots on the patio in the mornings we absolutely loved everything about Blancaneaux. The service is excellent and sincere ... they go above and beyond to provide personalized service calling you by name and remember your preferences. The hike to big rock falls is incredible! The pool was closed for service so they suggested our family spend the day at Francis Ford Coppola’s private villa... seriously over the top and I’m extremely picky. To level set expectations this is the jungle so you might encounter a bug or two and there’s no air conditioning, phones or TVs in the room, exactly what we were looking for... totally off the grid in secluded luxurious accommodations with great food and wine!!
This is an astonishing and beautiful place to visit and to stay. The lodges are superb - ours overlooked the river and its waterfall. The restaurant is excellent, well-laid out, and a real sense of personal service at all times. There's an extensive visit programme available to suit all tastes. The birdlife on site is gorgeous. Totally recommend this for a visit, and just one of a few rare places we would want to give six stars to. We had the final departure delight of a carriage ride up to the airstrip for our personal flight out - magic!!!
