We stayed two nights at Lamanai Riverside Retreat. The view on the river is very nice. The room is below basic. No fridge and no table, furniture or anything you could put your clothes or your luggage. The air conditioning is extremely noisy, so that you cannot use it thru the night. Looks like 20 years old. No hot shower...

The setting is very peacefull and quiet with tables and shade down at the river's edge.. With wild life visible - a crodile glided by, hummingbirds busy and frogs singing their night chorus. So nice to be able to collect our river cruise boat at the riverside in the morning after breakfast at the bar watching the river pass by....

I initially rated this slightly above average due to the unique location along the river, the adjacent bar and restaurant, and the hospitality of the owner but decided to rate it one star less due to the issue at the end of this note. We stayed in the stand alone cabana to the right of the restaurant as you face...

This resort is enjoyable in many ways but the lodging is rustic. For this range of cost, it's pretty much the only place of its kind in the area and perfect for the adventure to Lamanai and other activities here. First the pros: Mr P is a friendly, attentive, and helpful owner and host, as is his staff. The food...

We stayed here Feb 6 and 7th 2017 We stayed in the Cabana on stilts at the very end. The room was very clean and cost 60 US per night. They also have rooms for 45 US per night. The grounds are very nicely kept and you have the river right outside your door. There is a small sitting area...

Stayed 2 nights in Orange Walk at the Lamanai Riverside Retreat. We rented a stand alone cottage and were pleased with everything with the exception of no hot water. The retreat is just steps from town but feels like it stands alone. Internet is only accessible in common areas. The most outstanding feature of this property are the owners and...

Stayed here as first stop on Belize trip. Mr P picked us up from Bus station at 06.00 in the morning which was great and gave us coffee. That morning we went on the lamina tour which was out of this world and he had organised everything for us. Later that night his son Lance took us into town and...

We spent 2 nights at Lamanai River Retreat. It was a very good location to do the Lamanai River Tour from, which we really enjoyed - an interesting day with lots of wildlife. Orange Walk itself is quite run down, each time we ventured into town we ended up with unwanted random locals talking to us and following us for...

I loved staying at this place. Orange Walk itself was a welcome relief from the stiflingly suppressive atmosphere of Belize City: people here were helpful and friendly. The Lamanai Riverside Retreat is superbly located, a ten-minute walk from the centre of town, and right bang on the banks of the beautiful New River which runs through town. The three cabins...
