Black Rock is off the beaten path. We drove there, and it was a journey! The road in is long and bumpy, through mostly farmland. We thought that maybe we'd be able to go explore the town after checking in but once we made it there it was such a journey we didn't want to leave again, especially since it was getting late and we did NOT want to drive that road in the dark. The good news is that once you get to the Black Rock Lodge, you won't want or need to go anywhere! The place is a picturesque retreat with quaint open-air cottages for rooms and a full-service resort. Dinner and breakfast are available at the main center, as well as a number of different activities. You can, if you want, book all your activities through the front desk. The food is great, though their options are limited (one meat or vegetarian dinner option each day). You couldn't ask for nicer scenery. We particularly appreciated the emphasis on birding. The main lodge has a platform with fruit and birdseed set up so that there are birds visiting at all daylight hours, and they have staff on had to take you on walking tours of the grounds. Thanks to Fernando, we got to see a red-capped manakin!

Black Rock was a great base for our mainland tourism -- the setting is lush and beautiful. Hearing the howler monkeys at night, stuff pattering on your roof and the sounds of "something" brushing through your trees is just part of the experience. I only had to usher one rather large spider out of the room, which was Riverfront #5. There were lots of activities -- as a group of 8 that meant that there were things that we all did and excursions just a few would do, as there was plenty to do onsite, including vegging out on the hammock (which was super comfortable, I bought one for home when we got to San Pedro). Victor was amazing planning our excursions and dealing with my FOMO paralyzed brother-in-law who wanted to do things no one else did. The food was delicious, and the drinks were tasty. It does end up adding up, especially since we have 4 adult drinkers in the family, but they weren't overpriced. TIPS: put bug repellent on as soon as you plan to leave your room. Go early to breakfast and sit at the back bar as the birds will be going to town on the fruit. Build in tour stops to your transfers to and from Belize City -- we did the Belize Zoo on the way in and Xunantunich on the way out, with Goldburn as our guide. If you go to the Botanical Gardens ask for Lloyd as he used to work there. Francisco was also really great on our strenuous hike to the top of the cliff, and our bird tour. He would always stop and tell us something new about the flora when he knew some of us needed to catch our breaths. Definitely do your first hike guided as there are some things you shouldn't touch on some of the trails.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Riverfront for sure. Some of the Classic Cabins have less ideal locations.

the road to Black rock is very bumpy but worth travelling it, Victor was a great guide, went out of his way to make my visit easy as I had just had a new knee and mobility was not great. Maya ruins, Barton creek and Hummingbirds, what's not to like!

We loved the staff here. Mason makes one of the best pina coladas in Belize and Victoria made every meal an absolute delight. The food was really really good. Didn’t have one bad meal in their charming restaurant/bar area where we ate looking out on the hummingbirds, river and gorgeous starry night skies. The location is great as a base for local activities and it’s very quiet and peaceful. We stayed in cabin 17… never did get any hot water in the shower, but could hear the howler monkeys at night and woke up to dawn over a canopy of happy birds and lush jungle. We had one of the best massages ever… book it after you do the ATM tour (you’ll need it!) TIP: Save yourself from renting a car or getting a transfer — Maya airstrip is right down the road and we wished we’d known about that option. The tour activities are an easy shuttle ride into town to meet the guide or Black Rock staff can take you to local spots.

Spent 3 nights as a couple over Christmas week. Beautiful location away from everything. Lots of great tours personalized to your interests and friendly knowledgeable guides. Room are very basic , no hair driers , no wifi, no ac , only one electric outlet by the bathroom. Dinners are very disappointing one vegetarian and one none vegetarian option , both are western. Would have wished to try some local specialties at dinner. Same goes for drinks , all basic western bar options poorly mixed and overpriced. Not too many communal areas where one can seat and relax. They have a small airport nearby if you want to skip 3 hour non eventful drive to Belize city, but make sure to time your dates correctly as that airport doesn’t have flights every day. If you can , don’t choose basic room. They are very uncomfortable and poorly designed.
