We went here for part of our honeymoon and truly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a riverview tree house and I am glad we did. If you enjoy nature but want luxury at the same time then this is the place for you. We stayed here for three nights and went on 2 excursions. We went to Tikal in...

We stumbled upon this gem on Expedia. Such a great spot. It's a family style set up. Meals are done collectively. We were sat with other couples and families for each breakfast and dinner. At dinner they asked what adventures we wanted to go on the next day. It was so well organized and the staff were so friendly. We...

We celebrated a major anniversary, so decided to splurge and stay at Cave's Branch in the tree house accommodations and we loved it. We were there in mid-January and thought the location, the staff and the tree house rooms were fantastic. We had a beautiful view of the valley below and during the day numerous adventure options. Doing the Caves...

We stayed 2 nights in a jungle bungalow and 1 night in a canopy view tree house. Both places were very private and secluded and very nice. We loved having the screened in porches so you feel like you are sleeping outside. We heard howler monkeys and saw toucans. The jungle bungalow was so awesome but if you can, definitely...

Hi Annie H, It is truly wonderful to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and loved both of your accommodations during your short visit. As you mentioned, the rooms- all rooms, are opened and fully screened to the sights and sounds of the nature around us- which as you noted, is literally ALL OVER. The howlers and other...

This review is quite lengthy, but since most of the negative reviews address things that were clearly stated on the Caves Branch website under “Is Caves Branch for You”, it annoys me when people don’t do their homework and then publicly whine about it afterwards. The staff was incredible. Each and every member seemed genuinely happy to be there. Some...

What a fantastic place! We had a canopy suite which was absolutely gorgeous. We loved the common area and the buffet set up with family style dining. We met so many interesting fellow travelers and everyone was so friendly and happy. The bartenders were amazing; they remembered our names and made us feel like family.

The staff is professional, helpful and friendly. The rooms are comfortable, we where impressed how the rooms blend in the vegetation giving us a sense of privacy.
