Relaxing weekend away without kids

We enjoyed a nice and quiet weekend away from the kids. We had a tasteful breakfast, a nice romantic dinner in the wine cellar and a relaxing spa experience. The proximity to San Ignacio center is very convenient to go and explore the city, the market, Cahal Pech,...

Excellent Experience!

The hotel is amazing. Secluded, meticulous, great attention to detail. The staff is very attentive. I would highly recommend to a friend. The restaurant is excellent as well. Wolfgang and Lorena are wonderful people!


One can tell that Kaana resort and staff truly go out of their way to make your visit special. I've been around the world and we were truly truly impressed with Kaana. Their accommodation and pictures were spot on, I attached a few of my own to attest. Their food was beyond delicious but the thing that really made me go "WOW!!" was their personalized hospitality.
- when we arrived, we we're greeted with the warmest smile, attendants that brought our luggage straight to the room with no expectations of tips. We were also welcomed with a lime slushie drink, perfect for Belize hot weather.
- they inquired of our daily excursions and one of those days, they even delivered a personalized note wishing us a great trip and not to forget some of the key essentials to our trips.
- every night we will be surprised with a little complimentary dessert as shown in the picture. Just a wonderful way to end the day.
- one particular day, we left really early for our excursion and the front desk lady came up, noticed we had not had breakfast, and ask if we were planning to. Since we had no time, she proceeded to ask if we would like to pack something for the trip. She and the team put together a nice fruit assortment to-go for us within a span of 5 mins.

Aside from the hospitality, the facilities, people, food and beverage, and ambiance was just perfect. Our only qualm was the water pressure wasn't great (which isn't that big of a deal).

TIP: Our only tip for incoming travellers are that cabs to and fro kaana to town can get very pricey ($10 USD/way). A local told us if we cross the street from Kaana, look for a taxi (taxis have no designated car color or signage, just green plates) with plates that has BVO sign, they charge $3 per ride. Do not expect much from the cabs, they look like they run on fumes and duct tape, but this has nothing to do with Kaana. Just locals making a living - can't blame them.
