    Excellent property, inconvenient to access.

    Beautiful contained resort. Very nice grounds, well kept. Rooms were spacious, clean, well supplied and offered great wifi and visual media. Staff was helpful and attentive. Housekeeping was excellent. Great stay, lovely pools and beach. Property is located 10 miles from San Pedro. Road is slow and rough. There is a dedicated taxi company associated with resort. That was helpful and efficient to be picked up at airport and return to depart. Cost is $100 return trip. We enjoyed our stay at the resort. Be aware that it is a distance and large expend to travel back and forth to San Pedro. Golf carts are for rent, but the cost and effort is not likely worth it. Would recommend property to families and couples.

    Sapphire Beach Resort a North Island Jewel

    Wonderful north island resort. Far from San Pedro on a very bumpy road but we were looking for quiet relaxing so it was worth the drive. Great staff, so helpful and welcoming. Clean property with great security. Beautiful beach. Some additional outdoor loungers would be nice. Front desk reception (Heidi) arranged a snorkel tour with Amigos del Mar tours. Kyle and Bert were the best guides and so fun. They made our trip a worthwhile experience. Looking forward to a return to sapphire next year.

    Pretty and secluded resort with outstanding on site food.

    Sapphire Beach is like a little village in a secluded area north of San Pedro. The condos vary in size, but most units are private in their setting, with beautiful palm trees and white sand throughout. There are three pools, a tiki hut bar, and best of all a beautiful beach with piers going into the water. They have an on site restaurant serving three meals a day and the food is outstanding. The only downside is although they have many activities to offer, for most you have to go into San Pedro (about 30 minutes away) and for some of the better adventures you have to go to San Pedro, then take a water taxi to Belize for the adventure. Which is pricey and time consuming (about two hours altogether. If you just want to kick back and relax, it’s a very affordable vacation!

    Nice quiet location

    This resort is far from town, and a golf cart is a must to get around. The resort has 3 small pools with no umbrellas for shade. On-site is one small restaurant. On the plus side, if you want peace and quiet, this is it. Staff are friendly and helpful. Strongly advise when visiting to bring coconut oil and benadryl as the no- see-ums ( sandflies) were aggressive during our visit.

    A true getaway

    I can't say enough good things about Sapphire Beach resort. The staff are amazing; helpful and friendly and communicative. You aren't just a rando person staying at the resort, you're a guest; they know you and want to make sure you have an amazing experience. I was a little unsure about the distance to San Pedro town - it's not insignificant, but it also means a private beach, quiet days and nights, and a peaceful stay. I loved our stay here. Gem restaurant - the closest option - is excellent. Their happy hour specials are absolutely wonderful. They also had special food nights with outdoor dining, live music, super festive drinks, and fabulous food.
