Beautiful resort on the river.Posted Nov 20, 2015
Pros: It was very peaceful.
Cons: The roads around the resort need a lot of attention.
Location: The location was really nice. Their setup on the river is amazing. There are a lot of excursions from the resort. We did a couple of the Mayan ruins.
We had an all around great experience. The staff, food, and lodging were exactly as advertised.

Three days away from it all!Posted Jun 18, 2015
Pros: Great staff. Specially want to mention Fransisco, our guide, and Lucy who ran the bar and the restaurant while we were there.
Location: We enjoyed the day trip to Caracol. The nature trails is good (though brief) and definitiely do Big Rock
What a great time at Gaia. We had 3 days away fom all the hussle and bussle from daily life. No internet (was actually taken out by a thunderstorm), no cellphone, no distraction. We were living with nature's clock. Gaiai River Lodge exceeded our expectations. We happend to have the place all to ourseves for most of our stay. The lodge, nestled in the jungle, close by the five sisters waterfalls is a beautiful and romantic place. The individual cabins are minimalistic, but wel maintained. The first thing we noticed was the bed wih the mosquito netting. Looks very romantic. But the rooms are nice. Everything is there. No TV, no distraction. Just open air and stunning views. No AC required, open windows all the time. Yes there are bugs, but with proper behavior: don't eat in your room etc. This is never a problem, just part of nature. The falls, the environment... Just as we imagined it. The staff was wonderful. They made us feel at home. They pointed us to the right places to visit close by (we did see coati's on the nature trails), had a blast at the falls, took the hike to the Big Rock falls and found our selves all alone with a great watering hole and beautiful scenery. We took the Caracol day trip. Fransico was a brilliant guide. His passion for the location, nature and the mayan histories made this a trip unforgettable. He explained us the activities of the leafcutter ants as well as the rules of the Mayan ball games. If you ant to get away from it all, go to Gaia

Wonderful experience of both the country and the pPosted Jun 2, 2015
Pros: The bungalows were private and clean and the staff all friendly and courteous. We were pampered all week at this gorgeous location.
Cons: Everything was wonderful for us
Location: The hotel location is remote but the ATM tour, Xunantunich tour, Zip lining, and Macal River were all wonderful and Big Rock falls a bike ride away.
We celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Gaia and had a wonderful time. The hotel was beautiful and well run. We were pampered by the extremely courteous staff and enjoyed multiple expeditions with the knowledgeable and friendly guides. The views from the room were spectacular and private. The wildlife was abundant in the beautiful landscaping. Sitting under a cashew tree with hummingbirds flying overhead was extremely relaxing. Located on the 5 sisters waterfalls, we would enjoy a drink before dinner and take a swim in the falls after a day of adventure. Lots to do in Belize if you enjoy nature. We hiked the nature trail each morning and would then take a tour of adventure. It was a perfect getaway.

Greatview. Limited food.Posted Mar 12, 2015 on Hotels
Went there for our honeymoon and at first was a little confused about the location. Gaia is located deep into the jungles and thats what makes it what it is. You have a whole waterfall to yourself. Amazing view. Great people. Just a little bit of insects which I was already expecting. But Gaia has done great efforts to keep them off the rooms. Overall a great experience. Found the menu very limited. There are no other resutarants nearby and you are stuck to eat at Gaia everyday.
