Chena and her family welcomed me on the first night and I didn't want to leave! Accommodations are simple, clean, functional, and comfortable --- all I needed. But the food, service with love, and surroundings made the stay at Clarissa a memory I will not forget! It is quiet and peaceful with the beautiful sounds of the jungle singing you...

I stayed here in June 2014. I loved it!! I loved the atmosphere, the jungle, the birds, the friendly people... It was relaxing and fun. Chena and Jose are genuinely wonderful people and they took great care of us during our stay. The experience was the perfect combination of adventure and exploring Cayo and then returning to a place that...

We stayed at Clarissa Falls for six nights in June 2014. Chena took such good care of us. The restaurant was excellent and fairly-priced. Definitely try a soursop shake! We rented a car at the airport because we wanted to be able to drive ourselves around. However, there were two places that we wanted/needed to go with a guide: ATM...

If I return to an area that I've traveled before, I usually like to try a different accommodation even if the first one was fine. Just to have a different experience, maybe even discover an even better place, etc. After my first time at Clarissa Falls, 2 nights in 2012, I already knew I'd like to return and so I...

family of four stayed here in late March.

She will make it happen and at a reasonable cost. We got rained...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Clarissa Falls for four nights and had the most wonderful experience. Miss Chena and Jose are great people who made our trip to Belize unforgettable. We were sad to leave Clarissa Falls, as it felt like home. The food is outstanding! Fresh fruit, eggs, milk, etc...you can't beat it! The property is beautiful. I...

What a wonderful, magical place! We were booked for 2 nights and added a third, as it was such a great place to stay with so many things to do close by, that we just could not do it in 2 days! The staff was all amazing and we felt very much like we were visiting with friends after only...

Id definitely like to come back. The rooms were very clean, the staff here is very friendly and willing to help. The food here was amazing. I stayed with a group so we had two meals a day and the restaurant is probably one of the better ones around San Ignacio. If you're in Cayo I can't recommend this place...

Three of my friends and I stayed at Clarissa Falls for 5 nights and I couldn't have been happier with the beautiful location, service, food, and accommodations.

We stayed there for 3 nights, including New Year's Eve. So much more peaceful than being in town. It's a beautiful setting and you couldn't ask for a more gracious and accommodating host than Ms. Chena. Our kids (age 7 and 10) just wanted to run around the grounds and play with the puppies and kittens, but we dragged them...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Clarissa Falls is to the West of Belize. It is 4.5 Miles past San Ignacio town, and 2 miles from San Jose Succotz village, we are on the heart of a Private working cattle ranch with beautiful lush green pastures and rolling hills. This is a Nature Lovers Paradise. Our Thatched roof huts are hugged by the Mopan river with the natural beauty of Flora and Fauna. The laid back setting combined with the existing peace creates a feeling of your heart meeting your soul to the sound of the cascading Clarissa Falls. ... more   less

“Even though the huts are listed to sleep four (1 queen and 2 twins) we decided to put one couple in each hut and it worked out very well.”

“We stayed in #2. They are simple and clean, but not luxurious - exactly what you should expect from an authentic Mayan hut (with concrete floors, running water, and electricity - but no AC). :)”

“There are two rows of cabanas that parallel the river. The river's gurgle can be heard from all. The cabanas closer to the restaurant will have stronger WI-FI.”
