My mom and I stayed here for the first leg of our two week Belize vacation. Steve was so accommodating and informative. We went on a tour of ruins, waterfalls and caves. He introduced us to the local way of life there in Benque. We felt so comfortable and safe. I can't wait to return with my husband and have...

I was concerned about booking a cheap hotel in belize but wow this was great. its clean and a super knowledgeable owner willing to direct us in our travels. I liked that it was right in the middle of a quaint town beside a great river with a nice view. so close to the ruins too. try the inner tubing.

Our stay at this hotel was the highlight of our trip to Belize. The owner, Steve, really knows the town and area well and has lots of stories and insight which he shared generously. Provides great tours too! The hotel was perfect for us - inexpensive, clean and welcoming. We had originally booked for a week, but extended our stay...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Benque Resort and Spa last Sunday for one night and we should have stayed longer. The resort was nice and clean and also offered free wifi. The balcony attached to our room overlooked the river which was also very nice. The resort is located next to the river in a small town. The...

AVOID THIS PLACE!!!: It is neither a resort nor a spa and we bailed out after one uncomfortable night. The BRs are not air conditioned, only the large living area whose highlights were a broken 1980s era TV, dirty couches and broken coffee table,2 chairs for a table that fit 8 and a single cup coffee maker probably filched from...

Mr. Levy how could anyone forget you? Your irresistible charm of arriving in our lobby to tell us of how things were going to work with you. We do not take kindly to fraudsters, and have written a full report to the local police, along with providing the video and audio evidence from our front lobby cameras. Fraud and extortion...

We recently stayed here having booked it as the 'Gateway hotel' we discovered that this hostel is advertised under many different names and confusingly all with different addresses. This makes finding it very challenging as locals only know it as Benque Resort and Spa which we didn't know being under the illusion of looking for the Gateway hotel. The next...

I liked that this hotel had a refrigerator, A/C, and a very nice balcony to enjoy food on that we bought at the grocery store. The hotel is good for the area, but it's not fancy. It is located on an unpaved street close to the river. We walked to the Xunantunich ruins which was a bonus, although it's not...

Enjoyed our two night stay in Benque. Arrived after a long day of travel and couldn't figure out how to check in. Waited a bit, asked neighbors and within 15 minutes or so, Steve, the owner, did indeed arrive to take us to our room. Steve told us a lot about the town, but honestly we couldn't digest all the...
