High attention to the customers. Silent environment, only birds are whistling. Nice view.

Gumbo Limbo was awesome. My wife and I stayed for 5 nights while exploring Mayan ruins during the day. The staff and owners were excellent. Super friendly and fun to talk to. The location is gorgeous. It's in the middle of nowhere in the jungle, where the only sounds are the birds and other animals. The lodge only has a few cabanas (5 I think), so it will never be busy. In fact 4 of our nights there, we were the only guests. Our cabana was super nice as well. We had one with A/C (I definitely need that...), and it worked fast that after touring and climbing Mayan ruins, it cooled us off fast. We had a great kingsize bed and a roomy bathroom. The cabana was very clean. I definitely recommend this resort. If I am ever back in the San Ignacio area, I will book here again.

Steve and Mike were the most excellent hosts. We felt like we were right at home in a slice of true paradise. If I’m ever in the area again I will most definitely stay here again.

This is a family owned and operated resort. The owners, Steve and Mike, go out of their way to make the Belize experience of their guests as good as it can be. We felt at home from the moment we arrived for our six-day stay. They arranged two trips for us with excellent guides. They accommodated our schedule and food preferences for meals and provide helpful advice for our self-guided daily excursions. The resort is beautiful and well-cared for and our room was always clean. One thing we did not realize when we booked the resort is how good the location is relative to the main attractions of the Cayo. Several other premier resorts we visited in the Cayo, are 20-30 miles of unpaved roads away from the main arteries. Gumbo Limbo is only 2-miles from the Western Hwy.

This is a truly magical place. It's a bit hard to find and you have to drive on a very bumpy road. We kept thinking we had taken a wrong turn. However, once we arrived, we were in love. The grounds are beautiful and the resort consists of just a handful of individual bungalows. This is a family owned business and the owners really make the time and effort to get to know you. You get to enjoy the sounds of howler monkeys, birds and geckos.

The lodge was very intriguing. I will have to describe further the location and the Belize experience. The room was excellent and the resort is totally beautiful with flowers and trees very well kempt. Every morning we would wake to parrots and toucans, every evening the sounds of geckos surrounded the area. The food was presented in first class manner and the innkeepers a couple from the UK with many experiences and lots of great stories. The discussion was great and drinks were well made to match. The location was hard to find, like everything in Belize. Very few signs and horrible roads. Be sure to rent a 4WD. The road coming off the main road is the bumpiest I have seen. The entrance is a road test for the hardiest vehicle. It just adds to the adventure we found there. The main road, Western Highway, is filled with people walking and riding bikes, twists and turns reveal massive speed bumps not well indicated, and practically no signs anywhere to indicate where to go. Driving was one of the biggest adventures we faced. Please don't drive at night, as the above becomes life threatening to those around you and yourself. Drivers there aren't like the people as anyone will pass on a sharp turn going over a hill. We loved Belize for all it's adventure and friendly people. The sights were amazing and the ruins awe inspiring.
