Diamond Reef is located six and a half miles north of San Pedro in a gorgeous and secluded area directly in front of the popular Mexico Rocks Reef Diving Reserve. The dazzling turquoise waters are exquisite. It’s just like a postcard!
It is secluded and quiet, but by no means remote. Other Villas and resorts sharing this stretch of beach, include Casa Rana (two houses south), 18 Degrees North (one lot North), Costa Blu Resort and Portofino just south and Blue Reef and X’Tan Ha just North.
After our first trip to Ambergris Caye, my wife and I returned at least seven or eight times before decided to build Diamond Reef. Diamond Reef is a small resorts consisting of two 2 bedroom condos and one 3 bedroom condo.
All of the condos are beachfront units with large 24x12 foot verandas overlooking the Caribbean Sea. We offer complimentary two man Kayaks that can be taken out to the reef and snorkel everyday as much as we wish. And it’s all free!
The condos were designed in the Spanish style, befitting the Caribbean location. Arches grace the verandas and doorways throughout the Condos. Elegant Mexican tile work accents all the floors both inside and out, again in keeping with the Caribbean theme.
We have arguable, one of the finest natural beaches on the Island. Wishing to preserve the natural beauty of the area, we resisted building sea walls. Instead, our architect and building contractor, carefully angled the condos 12 degrees north. This position not only catches the cooling effect of the prevailing trade wind but also creates a more expansive natural beach stretching from the front of the condos to the water as can be seen from the photos. There may only be a handful of locations, if any, that can match this in size or natural splendor.
Away from the hustle and bustle of town, it is quiet and safe, providing that dream vacation that you would wish. With only three condos, the huge private beach and pier are virtually yours to enjoy during your stay. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or for the family who doesn’t want to worry about the kids.
The rate includes free pickup and return when you arrive and depart from San Pedro, free WiFi, Cable TV, full laundry, use of a local cell phone during your stay and complementary Kayaks. The Kayaks can be taken directly to the reef. We also offer a 40% discount on a 4 seat golf cart. Most of our guests end up renting a cart anyway. It is the best way to see the entire Island and explore. It opens up a lot more possibilities as well, like visiting the west side of the Island (Secret Beach) and even go all the way north to Tranquility Bay. The other plus is that when you go to town, you don't have to walk and you have a vehicle to put your things in. The north road to town was built a few years ago. It is paved for about 3+ miles north of town. and is excellent. The remainder wasn't paved and has gotten bumpy and has a lot of pot holes. especially when it rains. But it is heavily traveled by everyone everyday regardless. It is annoying dodging the potholes, but it is safe and predictable.
