The owner actually told us that "Americans have ruined Belize" and that "All locals are stupid"! Enough said. I won't be back. Nice cabanas. Tubing on the river. Cocktails at 5:30. But not all safes are functional and there was some eveidence of tampering with our luggage, so don't let your guard down.

I strongly contest these remarks by this guest. The remarks attributed to me are a complete fabrication. The fact that he puts my supposed comments in quotation marks does not mean that I have ever uttered any such comments and nor would I. The lodge takes pride in only employing people from the neighbouring village of Big Falls. While the...

If you want to feel like a traveler and not a tourist, then the Lodge at Big Falls is the place to stay! My husband, our nine year old son, and I stayed 5 nights there in Feb 2016, and could not have imagined a greater experience. We strive to find the out-of-the-way places where we can see a country...

Stayed here for a night as part of a tour. The cabanas are lovely and ours overlooked the river, which was a treat. Took part in tubing down the river. It was a relaxing ride looking up at the trees and lazing along. The dinner we had at the lodge was excellent and sitting on the front deck sipping a...

We stayed here 4 nights, after spending a couple weeks up north in the Orange Walk area, and found this to be a wonderful base for birding in less-visited southern Belize (with Steven, a sharp local guide arranged by the lodge). A small river and broad-leaf forest surrounds the property, with wildlife like neotropical river otters and agouti, and numerous...

Lodge at Big Falls- I spent four days at the lodge before heading north to Ambergris Caye. Had rain most days but was able to arrange two tours with Steven. He was a wonderful guide to Ixcacao Chocolate Farm. The entire staff at the lodge was great. The thatched cabana I stayed in was perfect with view of the river....

My group and I stayed at Big Falls Lodge before heading out for three nights of camping. It was exactly what we needed before entering the wilderness! Great food, comfortable bed, hot shower and friendly staff. I would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling in that area.

My wife and I had an incredible vacation in Belize at the Lodge at Big Falls. We scheduled the trip in early June, 2015, which every tour book said was a bad idea, it being the start of the rainy season. It did rain some, but not enough to spoil our vacation and the rain helped cool us off. Estevan...

My husband and I stayed at The Lodge at Big Falls for three days and nights at the start of our honeymoon. Steven was an incredible guide who taught us so much about Belize.

Visited in June of 2015. Lots to do in the Punta Gordo area. Rob and his staff are not only professional, but a wonderful source of information for activities. Casual dining and drinks with an amazing menu was an unexpected bonus!

We stayed for 5 nights starting 10/17. 3 days were spent birding with Steven Choco. He is an outstanding guide. Excellent sensory skills - he heard birds we didn't even detect & was very good at calling them out. Very enthusiastic - he just kept on going. The lodge was great - staff was there for anything we needed. Wonderful...
