Here's another report on an out-of-the-way lodge.

Southern Highway/San Felipe Road
P.O. Box 118, Punta Gorda
Tel: no phone at present
This new hotel, set in spacious, orchid-filled gardens, is located just off the Southern Highway, seven miles from the sea at Punta Gorda. It’s
convenient for visiting the Maya villagers and ruins of Toledo and the southern cayes of Belize. The air-conditioned rooms are on the ground floor of a thatched building; above is a restaurant with all-round screens, allowing panoramic views. Tranquility is popular with bird-watchers – over 200 species have been seen in the grounds – and a gorgeous,rock-lined creek serves as a natural swimming pool. US$50 double, inc.breakfast, other meals available. You can camp here, and there's a backpacker special rate if you get off the bus and walk in, only 300 yards from the highway.
