Welcome, come experience paradise with us! We would love to have you stay with us! NOTE: We have two condos, so if you can't find the dates you need, try VRBO listing #973617 - its the same place and the reviews cover both condos.
Diamond Reef is six and 1/2 miles north of San Pedro in a gorgeous and secluded area directly in front of the popular Mexico Rocks Reef Diving Reserve. The clear, dazzling aqua blue waters are enchanting. It’s just like a postcard!
It is very private and quiet, but by no means remote. Other Villas and resorts that share this wonderful stretch of beach, include Casa Rana (three houses south), 18 Degrees North (one lot North), Costa Maya Resort and Portofino are south and Blue Reef and X’Tan Ha North. They all have websites that you may want to check out.
Away from the hustle and bustle of town, it is quiet and safe, providing the perfect place to vacation. Diamond Reef consists of three Condos, only two of which are rented. You have the huge private beach and pier virtually to yourself. It is the perfect place for a romantic get away or for the family who doesn’t want to worry about the kids getting away. The rate includes free pickup and return when you arrive and depart from San Pedro, a daily trip in our private boat to anywhere on the Island, free WiFi, DirecTv, use of a local cell phone during your stay and complementary Kayaks.
Our private boat is at your disposal, complete with boat Captain, Alvin. Alvin is always available to take you to town or to any of the many resorts and restaurants up and down the coast of Ambergris Caye.
The Coastal Express water taxi also makes regularly scheduled stops at our pier as well, every one or two hours.

Great service, beautiful grounds, nice condo
Like the other reviewers have said, Alvin is what made our visit great. The beach area is very nice (just know that seaweed and sea grass is a major issue on the entire west coast of the Caye). The condo unit is decent and it is located pretty far north which makes for a rather long trip into town, but there are restaurants up and down the road. I would definitely consider returning to Diamond Reef primarily because of Alvin’s friendly and very helpful service. If not for him, I would stay a little closer to San Pedro.
Recommendations during your stay: If you want a nice romantic dinner you need to go to Mambo’s. Traveling with kids? Take them to the Truck Stop. We also took the kayaks to snorkel around the reef outside of the Preserve and it is just like swimming in an aquarium. Secret Beach is beautiful and has no seaweed since it is on the leeward side of the Caye but it is a long and very bumpy ride to get there! Make sure to get some authentic Belizean food while there - Alvin has several recommendations.
Amazing place on the beach!
We absolutely love this place! We spent 6 nights here and didn't want to leave. Alvin made sure we had everything that we needed. Everything was as described. Would definitely stay here again. It is far enough out of town to be quiet but close enough to drive into.
Fantastic family home base!
Loved the condo and the hosts Alvin and Rose. As it was our first trip to Belize, we really enjoyed the seclusion and being away from the hustle and bustle of town. Don't let this deter you from considering this location - a golf cart rental and the daily complimentary boat rides make Diamond Reef a fantastic family home base to start your adventures from.
Our only complaint is the heaps of sargassum seaweed that was accumulated in the water and mounded up on the shore the entire time we were there which kept us from enjoying the beautiful beach at all. Though we realize this is out of human control, we didn't touch the water in front of the condo once and the kids spend most of their time in the pool. The seaweed also emitted a pungent odor like rotten eggs. The other properties nearby had clean-up crews clearing the sargassum daily.
Beautiful location, unfortunately the sea grass was really bad and wind was heavier than normal.
We had a great time in spite of the less than ideal weather and sea grass. Alvin was great, set up all our snorkeling excursions. The people of San Pedro were incredibly friendly and helpful. Highly recommend Caliente’s restaurant and a visit to the Truck Stop. Blue Water Grill is overrated and over priced. Missed lobster season by a few days - won’t make that mistake again!
Little piece of paradise!
Appliances somewhat dated but the property was immaculate and functional. Beds comfortable and condo is perfectly located away from the populated resorts but only 20 minutes (by boat) which was so convenient. Location provided a great amount of privacy and peace. Alvin (boat captain) and his wife Rose were kind and extremely attentive and accommodating. I will definitely tell others and would come back (next time much longer)! Having access to the private boat is the greatest convenience. This one's a keeper.
Amazing place. We will be back!
We enjoyed our stay very much. It exceeded all expectations. Alvin the caretaker was awesome.
