My husband and I spend a week at duPlooys and thoroughly enjoyed our (first ever!) stay in a jungle eco-lodge. The staff at duPlooys is exceptional. All very professional yet personable. Judy, the owner of duPlooys came around almost daily and inquired about guests' well-being, or to chat. A nice touch! The variety of dishes offered in the dining room...

Thanks for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed the jungle. When you bring the grandchildren, let me know and I'll tell you the trip favorites of my grandchildren. Isn't it amazing that a property can be organic, in the tropics and yet have virtually no biting insects? This is because there are so many birds, lizards, frogs, etc that...

My wife and I were on our honeymoon, and couldn't have had a greater welcome. The staff was very nice and accommodating throughout our stay,and even gave us a bottle of wine in honor of our occasion. A nice surprise was the great botanical garden, and amazing views from the balcony. Every morning toucans eat fruit by the bar, and...

Arrived in a rainstorm. It was a good thing that we had a driver from the hotel pick us up at Belize International airport, otherwise we would have never found DuPlooy's. The owner, Judy, is actively involved overseeing the day-to-day operations. She greets all her guests at morning breakfast. You cannot ask for better service from the main desk. Everyone...

Thanks for your review - and thanks for letting me know that the bartender was not there because he is supposed to be. You were here during our really bad weather spell so the roads were in worse than usual shape. But, you are right, it is a long drive. We recommend driving one way so that you can stop...

Thanks for your good review - and the recommendation for Tikal. All of the tours and activities in thi part of the world are pretty amazing. Our favorite is the horseback ride to Xunantunich with a visit to Flour Camp Cave and canoeing back. This way you get a three-in-one adventure and time to have other experiences as well. Judy...

My elderly friend and I did not have a 4x4 vehicle, first mistake; went during the rainy season, second mistake; kept driving after nearly sliding off the road, third mistake.

Thanks for your review. Since you were a last minute booking and you stayed in the only space we had left, you can hardly blame us for the room being too big or for the unseasonal weather. Most of visitors leave the rental car behind and ride with us which turns out to be less expensive and our driver/guides have...

A group of six of us stayed for a week. We lived in a huge house with 12 beds -- a little over the top! It rained almost every day but that didn't stop us. The teenagers loved the horseback riding and canoeing and caving -- lots of adventure. The adults enjoyed the botanic garden and the fantastic birdwatching. And...

Thanks for your review of duplooy's. I'm glad you had a good time in spite of the unseasonal weather. The rains only stop you from doing things when there are flood situations and of course, it's impossible to predict weather anywhere any more. At least it's not cold here! We are now back to sunshine with just enough rain to...

We stayed 10 days at duPlooy's and loved it. We stayed in a bungalow, which was roomy, quiet, and had a nice kitchenette; wonderful porch (with hammock) overlooking the Macal River, where we spent a lot of late afternoons. Even the pouring rain (unusual this time of year) couldn't dampen our spirits. The birding was outrageous, from our porch, from...

Thanks for your review. I'm glad that you got to go to the Women's Coop. It is one of the few coops that truly work and we have seen it evolve from a few craft items to what it is today. Well worth supporting. I know that the continental breakfast which consists of coffee or tee, fruit or juice and...

We spent 4 fabulous days at duPlooy"s and it was just not enough time. Every staff member was well-informed and friendly yet unobtrusively professional.

Everything about the lodge is comfortable and welcoming. Our cottage was comfortable and equipped with everything we needed including a hammock on the screened porch.
