The service and staff were very friendly and accommedating. I made reservations from Belize City the day before I drove out to San Ignacio. DuPlooy's is an eco-lodge just up a dirt road from the famous Chaa Creek resort. I would definitely recommend duPlooy's.
The priced seemed very resonable, much lower than when I checked on their website before I left. It paid to make the reservations once in Belize, but I was there during the off season. This probably would not be a good idea during the busy season.
Unique Quality: Situated in the Belizean jungle just above the Macal River. The garden were great as well as the food. Not to much to do unless you sign up for one of the many trips that they offer. I chose to take a day trip to Tikal, Guatamala (see Tikal).
I did a short hike and was able to walk down to the Macal River. The river was very quiet and hade a nice, small sand beach.
Although I did not take advantage, massages are available on a deck over looking the Macal River and the jungle. It looked like it would be very relaxing.
Directions: If you are renting a car:
Take Western Highway west 72 miles. Slight detour through San Ignacio Back on the highway look for the duPlooy's sign after 5 miles. Turn left on dirt road and follow signs about 5 miles.
