"Villa Natalia fulfilled all of our needs for both relaxation and adventures in San Pedro. The property was spacious, clean and well maintained. The modernly designed kitchen was especially well-equipped and and the grill available to us was massive! One of the highlights our vacation was sipping coffee around the table on the ocean-front deck. Tranquility Beach Resort, which houses Villa Natalia, has beautiful grounds and a comfortable pool area. We spent time every day on the beach or in the pool on the property. Armando, the groundskeeper, was a pleasant fellow who did a fabulous job taking care of our needs (water refills / giving us fresh coconut water). We also enjoyed having a few eating establishments within walking distance of the condo (although it should be noted that some of the establishments where starting to close for a few week-months because of the arrival of the slow season). The condo is ideally located a couple of miles south of San Pedro, offering the quiet we desired and yet the golf cart ride into town was quick and easy. I'd recommend Villa Natalia to anyone looking to vacation on Ambergris Caye."Guest: Tara M. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 21, 2014View listing
"We loved the place we stayed at, a little dissapointed at how the beaches of San Pedro were kept up. The weather was absolutely perfect and the restaurants were very good, the average price for two and a couple of drinks for each will run you about 80-90 dollars. An avereage hamberger is about 12.00 american money. All in All I would give San Pedro a 6 oout of 10 because I'm a water lover and it let me down."Guest: Minnesota Group Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 31, 2014View listing
"It is bittersweet that today is our last day at Diamond Reef. Our family of 5 have had such an incredible vacation, enjoying every minute of this trip. Thank you for sharing your Belize home with us; it has been the perfect place to stay, relax and seek out adventures. Alvin and Rosa are so gracious and kind. And their kids, OMGoodness, they are precious. Alvin took such good care of us and we are so grateful. We made new friends at X'tan Ha Waterfront Resort and hung out with our downstairs neighbors from Huntington Beach. Shared a fishing trip with them, too! Love, love, love everything about Ambergris Caye and Diamond Reef! Thanks so very much!"Guest: Janice P. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 19, 2014View listing

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.
