You will not want to leave this place. We spent 3 nights here in July and our only regret was not staying longer. Vanilla Hills is heaven on earth! The superior treehouse is gorgeous and has everything you need for your stay. The bed is super comfortable, and we enjoyed the outdoor shower and hammock on the porch. I slept so well between the comfort of the room and & lovely jungle noises. The pool is so beautiful and clean. The restaurant and bar is top notch. Every meal we had here was delicious. My favorite was breakfast; their fresh baked bread and homemade jams are to die for. Claudia and Franklin are superb hosts, and their staff are the best around. We had a great time getting to know them, and they were really helpful when it came to exploring San Ignacio and arranging shuttles and taxis. The attention to detail blew our minds. From the presentation of their food and drinks, to the room, to the grounds, we were extremely impressed. There was obviously a lot of thought and effort making the lodge into what it is, a jungle paradise. Claudia, Franklin, Mark, Daniel, and the rest of the staff that I didn’t get the names of- Thank you so much for such an amazing time and your generous hospitality. One thing I think would be cool is a guest book in the rooms for guests to write a little note in during their stay. 📖 We hope to visit again. ❤️ Cara & Kris from Tualatin, Oregon

Look no further, stay here!
This was our favorite place we stayed at in Belize, absolutely exceptional! We stayed in the superior tree house, all windows, very private, you could easily open the windows or close them up with AC. The black out drapes were easy to close and the outside shower beautiful! Close enough to go into San Ignacio but really no reason. Choose the dinner special over anything else on the restaurant menu.

Everything there was amazing amazing amazing! Claudia and her staff were constantly happy and helpful and focused on making sure we had anything and everything we needed. The grounds are beautiful and the food was the best we had during our 2 week trip through Belize. Seriously just the bread and jam at breakfast would make me come back. Unbelievable! We had a chance to visit Bullet Tree and go tubing in the Mopan with Maya who worked there, and it was an unforgettable highlight to our trip. He was so generous and kind and wanted us to see where he was from. It was a perfect day. The whole staff there are truly great at what they do and they should all be very proud of how they make the guests feel. They are really really good people. Loves every single minute of our stay.
