Belize Jungle Bungalows

Policies for Your Stay at Our Belize Jungle Bungalows

Check-in / Check-out / Quiet Hours

Check-in at our Belize Jungle Bungalows is from 2:00 – 8:00 pm. If you need an earlier check-in time, please let us know, and we’ll try our best to accommodate you. If you need a later check-in, please confirm before booking.

We also appreciate knowing your estimated arrival window, so we can plan ahead and open our main gate. Our friendly dogs and the village dogs roam freely, so we manage gate openings accordingly. Additionally, we sometimes need to run errands, and we can schedule those around your arrival.

Check-out is by 11:00 am. If you need a later check-out time, please let us know in advance, and we will try to accommodate your request.

Quiet hours are 9:00 pm to 7:00 am.

Booking Policy

Our published rates are in U.S. dollars, per bungalow/room (not per person), per night and include tax (9%). No additional fees! We do not charge a housekeeping fee, and there are no automatic service fees. The price listed for your reservation dates is the price you pay.

To confirm a reservation, payment in full is required at the time of booking.

We accept Visa, MC, AmEx, and Discover Credit Cards. All reservations require pre-payment via Credit Card. Once paid, your rate is guaranteed for the duration of your reservation. We do not accept PayPal, Venmo, Bitcoin, etc.

Cancellation Policy

We encourage guests to rebook our Belize Jungle Bungalows instead of canceling. And please, please, please, purchase travel insurance. We recommend using, which will provide you with multiple quotes from several different travel insurance providers to choose from. There are some that are “Cancel for Any Reason.” You usually have up to 2 weeks to purchase travel insurance after booking airfare & lodging, so don’t delay.

If you cancel more than 30 days before arrival, we will issue you a refund—less any bank/credit card processing fees and currency exchange charges (if applicable). These fees are approximately 3.5% as charged by the CC processing company Stripe.

If you cancel less than 30 days before arrival, there are three options:

1. Submit a claim to your travel insurance policy. We will provide the documentation needed.

2. You can apply your reservation payment to a later date. Note that if rates change, your original reservation amount will be applied to the new rates (future rates could go up or down).

3. We will attempt to rent out your booked bungalow. If we are successful, you will receive a refund for the nights we are able to re-book, less the fees mentioned previously. You would not receive a refund for room nights that we were not able to re-book. If your room remains empty for all the nights of the original reservation, a refund will not be granted.

There is no time frame limitation for rebooking a reservation. It can be next month, next year, or more!

All cancellation requests must be received in writing.

Other Details to Note before Booking our Belize Jungle Bungalows

Please read these additional notes before booking to make everyone’s experience better.

Smoking & Open Flame Policy

Please note that this is a totally non-smoking/non-vaping property. Smoking areas are outside the front gate and by the riverside.

No open flames are permitted in the bungalows. This includes candles, matches, etc.

Suitability for Kids

Our riverfront property is not safe for unattended children of any age (especially up to 13 years old). Children must be supervised by an adult at all times. The property has a steep walk down to the river. There is a gate, but it is not childproof.

The property and bungalows are not suitable for infants to 5-year-olds. There is no childproofing, and we do not have any amenities geared toward children. The indoor surfaces are all hard surfaces; wood, tile & cement. 

Children (under 18 years old) cannot be left alone onsite or in the bungalows for any amount of time.

Minimum Night Stay

There is no minimum night stay requirement for the Banana Bungalow. The Belize Bungalow has a two-night minimum stay.

Energy Use

Electricity is very expensive in Belize. For this reason, we need guests to turn off the Air Conditioner, lights, ceiling fans, and floor fans whenever they are not in the bungalows.

Please note that fans cool people, not rooms. Unlike A/C, which cools the air, blows it into a room, and lowers the temperature, fans work by circulating the air already in a room, causing air to rush across your skin and evaporate the moisture, which makes you feel cool. So, fans only cool people in the bungalow and do nothing to cool the bungalow itself.

We understand that you are on vacation and may forget to turn off the A/C, a light, or a fan. So, if we notice something is on after you leave, we will turn it off for you.

Food Storage & Disposal

Please store and dispose of all food and food-related items in the outdoor kitchen area. Food and food-related trash in Belize jungle bungalows is the quickest way to attract bugs. We discourage food, drinks, wrappers, etc., inside the bungalows. This is a jungle, and the jungle bugs (mostly ants) LOVE food and have an amazing jungle communication network to share new sources of food with!

We separate garbage by type. We’ll share the details with you upon arrival.

Belize Jungle Bungalows Housekeeping

We thoroughly clean the bungalows before our guests’ arrivals. If you would like your bungalow serviced while you are here, that can be accommodated for a minimal charge. However, if you need additional towels, just let us know (no extra charge for those).

If your stay is more than a week, we will replace your sheets & towels. And other small housekeeping services will be provided free of charge; wastebasket emptying, sweeping, dusting, etc.

Additional Guests (not on the reservation)

We don’t mind a few extra people on the property if we know in advance (even if they just visit for a short time). Please ask any additional guests you invite to ring the gate doorbell or let us know as soon as they arrive so we can meet them.

We cannot legally accommodate more than the specified booked guests for your reservation, so please do not invite additional guests to stay overnight. We don’t mind small get-togethers, BBQs, etc. – but please, no loud or large parties.

Important Belize Jungle Bungalows Disclaimer

Cristo Rey Village is in the jungle region of Belize. While this provides incredible beauty and natural wonders, it also means that heat, humidity, critters, sudden tropical squalls, and power outages are not uncommon.

We strive for a calm, serene & relaxing environment, and most of the time it is just that. However, the tropical birds are very active as daylight breaks, and the Howler Monkeys can get loud some nights. We are also in a small but relatively active village (for a jungle). Sometimes the neighboring roosters, dogs, etc., can be heard. For those guests who are extremely noise sensitive, please keep these things in mind.

Living in the jungle also means an abundance of Geckos, Iguanas, ants, and ‘bugs’. None of which are dangerous. Surprisingly though, mosquitoes are usually not an issue.

That said, we do everything we can to ensure your stay is comfortable and pleasant.

Belize Holidays Disclaimer

Holidays are festive times in Belize, and the love for celebrations is deeply ingrained in Belizean culture. During holidays, it’s not uncommon for locals to enjoy lively gatherings with music and fireworks, contributing to a vibrant and joyous atmosphere. We understand that this exuberance may be disruptive to some guests’ stays.

Whether staying with us, or anywhere else in Belize, it will be louder than normal during all Belize Holidays. And the Holiday isn’t just a single day of celebration….. Belizeans start celebrating days before and usually at least one day after any given holiday. (For example, the official Easter holiday is 4.5 days long! Belizeans usually celebrate for at least 7 days & nights!)
