Gumbo Limbo was really a dream come true for our family of 5 on our trip last spring (literally just as COVID was hitting). From the time of planning our trip Steve and Mike were so helpful helping us arrange transportation from the airport with a stop at the zoo en route right to the lodge to assisting with some itinerary changes while staying there due to the COVID outbreak. They work closely with Belize Nature Travel who I also highly recommend. Absolutely perfect side trips that included cave tubing, ziplining, ATM cave (a MUST DO), Caracol Mayan ruins and swimming pools. All transportation and guides were excellent.
As for the lodge itself it was just beautiful. We had a bungalow perfect for 5 with 3 beds, beautiful patio with hammock, excellent bath/shower, wifi at the main building. The pool was gorgeous and just what was needed after a day of hiking. Views spectacular and waking each morning to the sounds of the jungle waking up all around was indescribable. The lovely breakfast each morning with fresh local fruit, French pressed coffee and again those open air views was amazing. Each night a full 3 course meal tailored to include our vegetarian daughter and wine/beer/ or cocktails of choice made for the perfect end to each evening. And despite the stress of the worldwide pandemic taking off and greatly affecting the owners future reservations they remained very attentive and accommodating to us and helping us with our own itinerary changes. We wish them every success and hope to return again one day! We will definitely refer anyone we know interested in beautiful Belize to this resort!!!

Room tip: The "honeymoon cabin" has outstanding completely private views and patio but any of the bungalows were great.

Just returned from Belize and spent four nights here. The place was perfect for us (two adults, three kids 8,6,and 3). The location allows you to not be to far from anything in the Cayo district (ruins, river activities, horse rides, ziplines, San Ignacio) but also has a "remote" feeling far away from the city lights and larger resorts. Food was very good and priced reasonably. Same with the bar. We really enjoyed conversing away the after dinner hours with Mike and Steve learning about their property and sharing stories. The pool was great and is perfect for a cool off in the afternoon. We did Xunantunich, the Iguana Sanctuary, Rio on Pools, horse riding @ MET, zipline @ Calico Jacks, and some San Ignacio shopping while staying here. If your looking for a large social night spot this isn't your place. If you appreciate nature, waking up to the sounds of birds, and a have a sense of adventure this is a place for you!

My husband and three teens ages 19,17 and 13 stayed at Gumbo Limbo for 3 nights. Our bungalow was comfortable with plenty of room for the five of us to spread out. Two big ceiling fans kept us cool and the beds were comfortable so sleep was good. The dining area/bar is spacious with a wide open beautiful view. A great place to sit any time of the day. Mike and his son Steve were very welcoming and interesting to talk to. The beer was cold and very reasonably priced! Our dinners of ribeye and fish were very tasty and also priced reasonably. Our teenage son is a big eater, he could’ve eaten two dinners. Belizean portions are considerably smaller than USA portions. The grounds are clean and beautiful with many trees and plants. The pool looked nice but we didn’t have time to swim. I highly recommend staying at Gumbo Limbo!

This place was MORE than needed after a few days spent in San Pedro. If you’re looking for a place that’s off the beaten path and completely immersed in the outdoors, THIS IS IT. Mike and his son Steve, were AWESOME! You won’t find finer men. Their level of hospitality is ON POINT!! The “casitas”, as I called them, were great, and definitely brought that nature feel. The pool was amazing to cool off in after a day at Caracol or the ATM. The meals here are on out and VERY filling. All I can say is, is THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY. Thank you Mike and Steve for everything!!

This was an amazing place to stay and made you feel you were in the middle of the jungle. Really liked the fact they were trying to be Eco friendly by harvesting rain water and generating their own power. It was ideally located for local attractions and day trips which Steve and Mike (owners) were happy to help book or give directions to. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the restaurant/bar area was a great place to relax as the kids played in the pool. Steve and Mike were great hosts and lovely people to spend time chatting with. Food and drink was good and they were happy to accommodate our picky eaters, they also made a good cup of tea! All round 5* experience. Will be visiting again hopefully!

Room tip: All rooms come with a picture postcard view.
