Lovely Jungle Retreat
Posted Jan 6, 2015
The Owners Jenny & Mike and their team made you feel very welcome and where more than willing to provide advise and help booking transfer, excursions etc.
Gumbo Limbo is in a fantastic location and settling, you really felt like you where out in the jungle but situated only a very short distance from the main road between San Ignacio - Belize and located just off the road that run to the mountain pine ridge (Caracoal). However I would recommend if you are hiring a car to ensure its a 4x4 as the road down to Gumbo Limbo could be challenging at certain times of the year.
We travelled from Guatemala (approx. 1hr from the board) so perfect stop over for someone wanting a few nights in the mountain Pine Ridge area before heading further into Belize or from Belize to Guatemala & Tikal.
The facilities at the hotel where excellent with a open plan bar, restaurant areas and a lovely pool.
A continentals breakfast is offered as standard included within the price but they are willing to cook alternative breakfasts if requested at a reasonable amount. They also offer a set menu (3 courses) in the evening at a reasonable price, the menu is normally quite westernised, so perhaps not the best if you are looking to sample the local cuisine.
The owner's did say that if they show as full on expedia to contact them directly as them sometimes have additional availability.
I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone else travelling in this area of Belize.
