    Such a lovely chilled spot! The pool is gorgeous, it’s lovely and secluded but also really accessible to all local attractions. Dave and Elaine went the extra mile every time we needed anything and are so helpful for planning any excursions or suggesting any things to see or places to eat. A perfect base camp for exploring inland Belize.

    Super great hostel/hotel! You're out in the jungle and can see a ton of wildlife. I saw three toucans from the pool alone! A really great place to relax and escape. The couple who owns the place is very sweet and really helpful with suggestions, not only for the area, but for all of Belize. The restaurant on the property is great too; nothing fancy, but the cook is really talented and prices are reasonable!

    This was the perfect spot to stay and relax. Dave, Elaine and Jack are very friendly and helpful. The pool is beautiful and the setting in the jungle is really nice. The food is very good and it's easy to feel welcome. As a plus there was a mix up with the cave tour and Dave went way out of his way to get me there so I wouldn't miss it. I don't know how to thank them enough. I highly recommend staying here

    First of all, Dave and Elaine were lovely- so welcoming and interesting to chat to. They gave me advice about what was worthwhile doing and what wasn't, arranged the ATM cave tour which was amazing! - and even drove me to San Ignacio when they were on their way on my last morning. The food was great. They're building newer facilities such as a pool, but even without that it's one of the best places I've stayed. Great location- perfect to get away from the crowds and noise to rest in the jungle.

    Love this place! Easy to find yes off the beaten path. Nestled in the jungle with little paths for a morning stroll or run. Great food and nice pool to chill in. Highly recommend it!

    An excellent place to stay. Great food cooked on-site, a clean pool to relax in, and otherwise a quiet peaceful place to be. The only thing is that it's a little easy to miss if you're on a bus as it's truly a hidden haven. However, it's pretty easy to get to a bus from the hostel and get to wherever you want to go (San Ignacio, Guatemala, etc.).

    Staff were so friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Food was great. The swimming pool was fantastic. It's pretty quiet this time of year, but was nice just chilling in a hammock or by the pool.

    Hidden haven is perfect is you want serenity and tranquility with its luscious scenery and salt water pool to relax in. The room and shower facilities were clean however there is no kitchen so if you are wanting to be able to cook yourself this may prove difficult. Despite this they do have an in-house chef jack, who was a highlight of our stay with his warm and welcoming manner providing good food and entertainment for the evenings we were there.

    Very Good

    Pro’s: Jack’s cooking Walk around the area with Sam (he works there, is a local - my highlight) The pool Good bathrooms Con’s: Atmosphere, would suggest to travel here with a group (although perfect if you want secluded and quiet) Location can be challenging, great if you have a car I didn’t feel very welcome there by Dave or Elaine Be sure to be across the rules around food or you may go hungry. Bring your own food if you can however there are no kitchen facilities for dorm room
