The Tut family provided all we needed for our 5 days: local foods, relaxing cabins, outstanding touring, and feeling of deep welcome. Eric had tremendous knowledge about the vast variety of bird and animal life - be sure to go with him on a dawn bird walk. Everald took us places we never expected, including "Miss Bertha's Best Belizean 'Fyah Haat' Tamales". This was one of the most memorable, enjoyable places we have ever visited. Thank you to the Tut family for all you did.

This Belizean, family run resort is the most amazing place to stay in the San Ignacio area. Everything from the colorful birds, delicious food, warm welcome, clean rooms to the exciting, well-organized tours of the butterfly farm, waterfalls, pools and ruins was excellent.

Due to covid times, we were the only guests in the resort aside from some family members. We really appreciated the flexibility in accommodating us. Our cabin (#2) was a very short walk from the main building where meals (breakfast and dinner) were served. The cabin was large and had everything we needed (air conditioning and screens for insects). The cabin roofs are thatched in the traditional style, which gave a bit of an exotic feel. There are lots of beautiful birds nearby, for an added local activity.

Just got back from a family vacation, it was an amazing experience. Everyone friendly, super attentive and they followed all Covid protocols which is a plus. They served delicious meals and we are happy they accommodated us with our dietary restrictions and also meals for our little ones. Our rooms were clean and we had a beatiful view. My three year old had an amazing time walking the hills, riding horses, running around the compound. Thanks to the entire staff for their excellent customer service.

Covid has sure kept us locked up but in belize🇧🇿 our Jewel we have soooo much places to visit. And so we chose this piece of paradise Crystal Paradise Resort, such a tranquil, relaxing place that only nature make u fall in love over and over. Despite virtual class, rainy afternoons we surely enjoyed our experience, from breakfast, lunch and dinner all were tasty ofcourse all Belizean cuisine 😋 and how can we not enjoy the smiles every time we got a serving was awesome making us not want to leave. We enjoyed the horseback riding, and also the quiet afternoons of chats at our porch/varandah and also the bird that came to visit. We spent 4days in truly paradise and looking forward to go back😉. Thank you so much for the hospitality and the great food. So if u looking for a place to relax this is definitely a todo u won't regret.
