Guest Reviews

These are actual guest reviews cut & pasted from TripAdvisor & AirBnB from guests that have stayed with us at Lucky Dreamer Lodge

Jeff and Cheryl were the bests hosts I've encountered. The guides they recommended were great, and they were generous in the amount of time they took to inform me of all the local things to do and see. And also generous with their amazing garden!

If you are traveling to the San Ignacio, Belize area, Jeff and Cheryl's place in Cristo Rey is where you want to be! They are amazing hosts and I know my review won't do them justice. From the great chat we had at check-in to the morning conversations over local coffee we feel like we have known them for years. They know the ins and outs of all things to do locally and how to get there. We had a rental car so we were able to drive to all of the great spots to eat and visit but Jeff and Cheryl can help with transportation if you don't have a rental. The local village has some of the best food I've had in years at a price that can't be beat! We drove to the caves and toured them, swam in the cave pools, swam in the waterfalls, and saw the 1000' waterfalls. It was a full day but totally worth it (and all within driving distance). I would definitely recommend if you rent to get something either 4WD or AWD as some of the roads are a bit rough and rocky at times. Jeff and Cheryl have a 2 person kayak that we used to go up the river and then floated back down where we saw 2 howler monkeys in the trees along the river. We visited the local Mayan ruins and the view from the top is amazing. You can see into Guatemala from the top of the tallest ruin. The lodge we stayed in was perfect. Comfortable bed, great shower, and we loved using the binoculars to see local birds and scan the trees for monkeys. We can't wait for our next trip to Belize and hopefully we will be able to stay with Jeff and Cheryl again as they truly know the meaning of hosting and living the dream! Thank you guys!!!

We absolutely loved Cheryl & Jeff's place! We were coming from an island and it was a perfect change. We stayed 3 nights and would have liked to stayed longer. There is a lot to do in the area and even though we rented a car we weren't able to see everything in cristo rey and it's surroundings. San Ignacio is about a 12 minute bumpy, but very scenic car ride. We absolutely enjoyed their property and the view from the deck. Kayaking up the river was another plus they offered. And a bigger plus is Cheryl and Jeff themselves, they are absolutely one of the best hosts we have had! Super attentive and so helpful. They helped us schedule a last minute tour for a very affordable price. They have a folder in the room with all kinds of recommendations and tips, super organized! We really enjoyed every single minute of our stay and would be delighted to stay again. Thank you!!
