Mahogany Hall Bullet Tree Falls Reviews
Gorgeous nature retreat Nov 17, 2011
Let me start out by saying that this place is absolutely gorgeous. It gets its name from all of the rich mahogany wood used in the construction. Mahogany Hall is not a large hotel, but it is by far one of the most beautiful that I have ever stayed at. Everything from the views to the rooms themselves is fantastic. It is completely in tune with the river and local flora and fauna. You cannot imagine a more relaxing and peaceful place.
That being said, I gave it an "average" overall rating. This is simply because Mahogany Hall has all the makings of being an upscale boutique, but it has not quite evolved into one yet. It was the most expensive place that I stayed in Belize. As of when I was there in January 2011 it was still being run by a gentleman from the USA and a local family. The hotel itself definitely can fetch the price, but it just needs to make the transition from the family's hangout to a polished and professional boutique to fully deserve the price tag attached to it.
It is a relatively new place so I wouldn't be surprised if this growing process is over and it has finally come into its own as one of the top destinations in the area. I feel bad about saying anything negative since Richard, the gentleman from the USA, is such an exceptional person. Meeting him and talking over coffee while looking at the river was a pleasure.
