We camped at Pine Ridge Lodge and had dinner there. Neil is a great chef and super helpful with suggestions to explore nearby natural attractions. It is a lovely setting and even without notice, Neil was able to whip up a memorable shrimp dinner.

What a fantastic find! Neil and his team were superb--from the excellent accommodations, through wonderful dinners (Beef and Yorkshire pudding one night, shrimp curry the next), through made-to-order breakfasts, touring recommendations, chill tunes, great conversation, beautiful grounds. We loved it and wish that we could stay longer. The new road in makes access easy, too. Highly recommended!!

Staying at Pine Ridge Lodge was the highlight of our trip to Belize. My friend and I looked for a place near the Pin Ridge Reserve so that we could explore the local Mayan sites and waterfalls. We stumbled upon Pine Ridge Lodge and are so happy that we decided to stay there. We considered more expensive options in the area but after reading the reviews of the unique hospitality, we booked with Neil. The room we stayed in was so peaceful, comfortable, and the decorated with such care. The rooms instantly melted away stress. Hot water, great pressure, immaculately clean. Property Highlights - 1. Wonderful service from Neil and his family. Meeting their daughter, Flow, and being included in a brief moment in their life and along our journey around the sun. 2. Peace, tranquility and seclusion only an off-the-grid accommodation could offer. 3. The food, ice cold Coke and beer. 4. Star gazing each night. Literally, the most amazing view of the stars we've ever experienced. There is no light pollution for miles. 5. Exploring at night around the property to look for nocturnal wildlife (yes, big hairy spiders). Don't worry, there were none in/near the rooms. 6. Waterfall within a short hike along the nearby river. Do yourself and your soul a favor and book your stay here.

Neil and his team were friendly, helpful and flexible. The food is smashing - there's not really a menu to choose from, just let Neil suggest what he can do for you and say "yes" because it's all delicious. We stayed in the VIP chalet, which was devine, and in such a beautiful, quiet, relaxing setting. Apart from Carocol, there are several local sites to visit. Definitely recommend staying here!

The Mountain Pine Ridge plateau, where Pine Ridge Lodge sits, is the oldest land surface in Central America, a high rolling terrain of pines and ferns and exotic birds blanketing ancient granites. Limestones overlap from the west onto the granites, while faults border much of the granite. Pine Ridge Lodge lies on the thin soil and exposed granite of this dry and somewhat hostile terrain, an oasis of greenery, exotic birds, comfortable rustic accommodations, and the best food and service we experienced in Belize. We checked in after a long ride, and were soon on the short trail to a peaceful waterfall, exotic bird sounds around us, and then a cooling dip. Then a second surprise: Neil is a wonderful cook! He's the most attentive host, and generally a truly delightful fellow. Hector magically foresees needs and sees to it that the adventure is seamless. We took two tours they arranged, with guides perfectly suited to our bird and geology interests. We slept well, ate extremely well, experienced things we hadn't really imagined for our trip, and left well rested, well fed, and totally amazed. These wonderful people truly went out of their way to make sure we had an excellent adventure, smiles all over.

Beautifully designed property and beautifully designed rooms, so tastefully decorated with vintage textiles. Each cabin feels private because of the arrangement of the rooms. Extremely generous and friendly hosts. Food is quite good. Don’t miss an opportunity to stay here!

When exploring all the amazing wonders of the Mountain Pine Ridge area, Pine Ridge Lodge is the perfect jump off spot to explore! Neil and his staff provide the most fantastic hospitality and can assist with coordinating anything you might want to do and there is so much. In addition to that, the accommodations are so cozy and with lovely local details. I can’t stress enough how incredible each and every meal was…from the delicious breakfasts/brunches to the amazing locally inspired dinners and absolutely do not miss out on his world class brick oven pizza night!!! There’s so much more to share but I strongly encourage you to go and experience it for yourself. In the meantime, we anxiously await our next trip. Cheers to Neil and his wonderful crew!

Our host, Neil, was fantastic! He was friendly and attentive to all our needs. Rooms are private cabins overlooking the beautiful pine woods forest and private stream. Lodge is close enough to San Ignacio for convenience but far enough for seclusion. There are sightings of tapirs and pumas on the property, and a waterfall within walking distance. Neil cooked all our meals, including home made wood-fired pizzas. The food was delicious and definitely a highlight of the stay. His local knowledge of the area helped us book the ATM tour with an archeologist involved In the dig. His assistants Hector and Jorge were always available to help with recommendations and booking our tours. We will be staying at the pine ridge lodge next time we come to Belize!

We stayed at Pine Ridge Lodge for spring break and had an amazing time! Great hospitality, incredible food, beautiful grounds, and Neil and Hector had awesome recommendations for must see locations and were super helpful setting things up!! The main dining room has such a cozy vibe and it’s great fun to be able to chat with both Neil and the other guests! Everyone really made us feel welcomed and cared for. Will definitely be recommending to any friends who plan to visit Belize!

It was so much better than a hotel. Niel’s food was great and the room was comfortable. Lots of places to see in the area and was a great homebase. Close to rio frio caves, caracol and the pools. Overall, it was an amazing experience!
