What an amazing place. The house slept 9 people. We only had 5 girls for a Christmas get together and had an awesome time. The Resort is friedly, safe, has excellent food and activities for all. Highly recommend!!! We will be back!
The resort is beautiful and everyone’s very nice. But, my trip was ruined the second day after getting there. I was in the pool when housekeeping entered my room. They seemed to be in there a while. When returning to my room, I was missing 500.00 cash. You try and trust people and hope they’re as honest as you are but people aren’t like that anymore. I reported it to management but nothing was done. I won’t be staying there again. Diana
Oasis of peace
Loved the Resort. Very laid back very clean .Nice big beach and several pools. The place to go and chill out not for city dwellers looking for NY type night life lol.. Food very good at the restaurant and bar and an onsite dive shop that does excursiones. Close enough to secret beach 20mins in a golf cart.
Your Better Belize It!
I contemplated writing this review since I selfishly would prefer this place be kept a secret for longer but our experience was just so great I have to share. We stayed for just a weekend and moved over to the mainland after our three-day stay. My friends and I stayed in a 3 bedroom condo right on the beach and you could quite literally hear the sounds of the waves crashing on the reef just sitting on the front balcony. We could not have asked for a more relaxing three-day stay on Ambergris Caye and were left rejuvenated from our travels after our weekend at this resort. Authentic and kind service from the staff & restaurant was just the cherry on top after booking a great package online. We got a top floor too with an excellent view of the beach and almost panoramic views of the island. The gardens and pathways were kept clean and manicured every morning making our breakfast walks feel like we were still dreaming. I'd definitely recommend choosing this hotel for small groups of friends or couples but be warned, you are about 30 minutes away from the party hub of San Pedro Town and will 100% need a golf cart so make sure you reserve one in advance as they run out before lunchtime every day.
Seclusion, Sea, Sand & Sapphire Beach! Best Belizean Holiday!
First off, let me start by saying this resort is not for party-goers wanting to hit all the beach bars along the coast. There are several other resorts that cater to party people and this resort is not it, but that's a good thing! You are in your own private piece of paradise when here and are given 5-star service at a fraction of the cost. Truly an unforgettable experience and an unexpected but wonderful surprise. Some nights we hit the bar near the two main pools (there are three and one is adult-only but not close to the bar which was unfortunate). The food was great and the small kitchen in the villa enabled us to cook our own breakfast and have lunch al fresco with the sound of the reef as our backdrop. The beach was one of our favorite spots and we spent quite a bit of time enjoying, what looked to us to be one of the only long stretches of beach on the island that was not heavily trafficked and where we were not being haggled by street vendors. A romantic and serene environment, definitely our setting! Take us back!
