Belize as a Local – One of the Great Places to Stay in Belize

When I was planning our trip and looking for places to stay in Belize, I heavily relied on Tripadvisor, as I’m sure many people these days do to see which hotels get good reviews. Sometimes, I wander off the main track to see what off-the-beaten-path options there are. That’s how I stumbled upon Macaroni Hill View Hotel. I contacted Rodwell and he immediately answered stating he can’t wait to have my family stay with them and eat like kings.

After looking over our schedule, we said let’s go for it. Macaroni Hill View Hotel stands in Pomona a tiny town that is off Hummingbird Highway, which is one of the most scenic drives in the country. It’s also the main orange grove industry area. The hotel is without a doubt the tallest building in the area and really gives you a sneak peak into Belizean family life.

Rodney and his five children run the hotel. But there are two things that stand out the most:

1. The food – his daughter’s home cooking of traditional Belize food still ranks number one for us after tasting different styles throughout the country

2. The view that is from the Restaurant of the village and orange groves

I feel so lucky that we had the time during our trip to spend in this part of the country and enjoy it like the natives do!

Thanks Rodwell for a memorable stay.
