Recent Ambergris Caye reviews

  • Perfect little house on the beach

    "Four of us came to stay on Ambergris Caye for a couple of weeks in February. We were lucky enough to find Brianna's Beach House. The location was great, near enough to everything but far enough away to be peaceful. The property was well equipped (except wine glasses), cleaned thoroughly every other day, and Sandi was at the end of the provided phone to answer any questions we had. We went on a couple of tours with Searious Adventures, which we all enjoyed, rented golf carts and explored the island, and generally had a very good time. I highly recommend this property."

  • Amazing Family Vacation Home

    "Thank you so much Brad and Paula. I can say enough about your lovely vacation home. I believe your home is set up amazingly for families. Upon arriving the house was freshly cleaned not a crumb onsite. Martha and Robert (onsite staff) openly greeted us and were so accommodating through out the stay. I highly suggest Martha's cooking! Yum! On the days we stayed at the house there was still a lot to do. I thought the hockey sticks and nets were such a nice touch for us Canadians. There wasn't a time that we didn't have something to do. We caught crabs every night on the beach and had many laughs with the kids over the crab races. Martha gave massages at the end of the dock. Robert cleaned the yard daily and always had a smile on his face. He suggested a few places for us to go tour. I believe your house and staff made it a worry free vacation. Everything was always accessible for us. eg. golf cart, tours, wifi. I highly suggest Casa Amarillo to large families or groups. The location and house couldn't have been set up any better. Thank you so Much! The Johnston family."

  • A great place to celebrate a special family occasion

    "We are a family of 10 adults and 2 small children looking for a great way to create special memories. Since none of us had ever been to Belize, we didn't know the lay of the land or what to expect. German and Edgar met us at the ferry and from that point on, they helped us to line up everything we needed to make our stay a complete success. The villa was perfect for our needs to allow us to cook during the day and go out for dinner at night. With the village being so close we had fun driving the golf cart to shop, eat, and hang out. Yet we were far enough away to have peace and privacy. Everyone is friendly and you never had to worry about safety. The weather is perfect in mid-January, the villa is great for a large group, and the staff is better than you would ever hope for. The fishing was excellent, cave-tubing, zip lining, snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming with sharks and sting rays....we did it all! There was something for everyone to enjoy. Thanks for making our trip a success! Loved it!"

  • Best Ever!

    "This was a perfect for the 9 of us that spent a week at the Blue Dolphin. There was plenty of room for everyone to do what they wanted to. Gloria and Armando were easily accessible when needed and immediately attended to our needs. We caught fish one day and Gloria prepared the fish for us like a gourmet chef would. Dr. Mark was an amazing host. He made sure our excursions were booked and the golf carts were at the house when we arrived. Everything he recommended was exceptional! The catamaran is a must. We met so many wonderful and friendly people that it makes me wish to be in Belize. Amazing place, amazing accommodations!"

Important Facts of Ambergris Caye House Rentals

Before traveling to any country, you should know when to go and a little about the destination. Belize is in Central America where the weather is great all year-round, though it can rain in the afternoons during the summers and spring. Near rainforest areas, you can expect Belize to be verdant and brilliant with colors such as the picturesque mangrove swamps. Ambergris is not on the mainland of Belize; instead, it's a key in the northern section of the country. On one side you have the Caribbean and on the other side is a small bay. The key is 1.6 kilometers wide and 40 kilometers in length. Much of the island is ringed with white, sandy beaches.

Ambergris Caye Villas Near the Maya Community of the Past

Belize, like much of Central America, was founded with the Mayan culture. Ambergris Caye was home to a Mayan community during the pre-Columbian times. Archaeologists have found red ceramics, bones, and ruins to support their knowledge about the Mayan culture. Not far from Ambergris Caye villas is a most important Mayan ruin. You can really see how the Mayans lived and learn about their culture by visiting Altun Ha and Xunantunich.

Temptation is Just a Short Boat Ride Away at Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye requires you to take a boat ride from the mainland of Belize to the key. Once on the island, you can explore its many attractions. Do not worry about fighting temptation; sky diving, scuba diving, watersports, sailing, zip lines, and more all await you in this tropical paradise. Scuba diving or snorkeling trips leave daily from the docks to reach Belize Barrier Reef. It is the second largest barrier reef in the world, and the reason Belize is considered one of the world’s greatest places to dive. Tropical fish, reef shark, turtles, and sting rays are just a few inhabitants of the clear blue seas.
