We stayed three nights. Owners Jon and Clara have built a great place and are fantastic hosts. The setting is deep in the Belize country side, along a beautiful river, with lots of nature and animals. Their parrot and bird collection is much better than the Belize zoo. They have fantastic horse back riding. Clara is an accomplished artist and...

Stayed at Banana Bank Lodge for the first two days of our Belize trip. It was hot, way hotter than we expected and despite no AC (we opted not to get an AC room), we did have three fans in the room that kept us comfortable. The room was basic, but comfortable and the grounds were amazing! Pool was beautiful....

We really loved our stay at Banana Bank Lodge, it was like staying in paradise. Room was very basic but the place is so beautiful. Delicious home style cooking. Staff and owners extremely friendly and helpful! John's hospitality is overwhelming. Great place for nature lovers. Horseback riding in jungle is a must!

We had the opportunity to stay at the Banana Bank Lodge on the first night of the Ruta Maya canoe race. We stayed in a large room that slept 6 people; 1 double and three single beds. Nice bathroom, good hot water, and fans (no A/C). The lodge has a nice pool, cool bird aviary (Scarlet Macaw!) and a rescued...

Very interesting Lodge just outside of Belmopan. You need to travel of the main highway about 5 miles down a dirt road. There are lots of rescued birds in large cages that wake up very early in the morning. There is one building within feet of this cage so beware if you are a light sleeper or like to sleep...

(+) Banana lodge is a really isolated place. If you want to come to the Lodge from Belmopan, you better hire a taxi for 25-30 BZD. At the end you come to Belize river and you hit a metal disc with a stone. Then you wait... and wait... and sometimes wait even longer. Until someone would hear your clang and...

John and Carolyn really love the jungle and their animals. They could not have been any nicer and interesting to talk to. John showed us his horse whispering skills in the mess hall. Super fun to watch a guy roll up ON his horse into the mess hall as you are eating breakfast. We did horse back riding with Sherman...

We loved our stay at Banana Bank, it was like staying in paradise. Animals and all. It was so peaceful. Until about 7:30 when the parrots and other birds they have on the grounds woke up. I wouldn't recommend staying here if you're wanting to be lazy and sleep in. You'll miss out on too much. We had dinner with...
