We just go back from a week stay at Casa B'Alam and it was simply amazing. The pictures shown are exactly what you get - paradise! We started off our vacation with massages from Wendy - best massage ever - and that set the tone for the rest of the week.
Definitely recommend renting the golf carts for the week. Some places are close to walk to along the beach or the main road but would not want to do the walk after dark. Restaurants were good nearby (Jamaya, Rojo (closed Sundays and Mondays), and Rendevous were great) and was definitely worth going into town to Blue Water Grill - did both the regular menu (Snook was amazing) and Sushi night. Amazing snorkeling. Came close enough to kiss the Sea Turtle at the Mexican Rocks. Roberto from Portofino was an excellent guide. Hol Chan was also amazing.
Only thing we'd do different is take a plane from Belize City to San Pedro. Boat ride was not fun. On the way in, we were packed like sardines all hot and sweaty and on the way out, it was raining, most windows were closed, and even though we were not packed in like sardines the carbon monoxide filled the inside of the boat and made a couple people sick.
Can't wait to go back to the island and we would definitely stay at Casa B'Alam again.
From the view of the ocean out every window (and the sound of the waves -- that is how close the house is to the water!), to the two person kayak to paddle out to the reef and snorkel, to the roof top porch for star gazing, and even the phone number for Wendy the massage therapist who comes to the house, Casa B'alam was the perfect get away and deserves a Five Star rating! Pluses: The owner just happened to be staying in the hut on the back of the property and was super helpful with recommendations for any and everything. And my husband is a diver and the dive shop picked him up every morning from Casa B'alam's private dock!
Casa B'Alam was fabulous and you won't go wrong spending your time there. The location was very convenient to local restaurants on the beach, a grocery store and a pickup point at the dock in back of the house. There were five of us and Casa B'Alam could easily accommodate six. Perfect place to relax, have great fun and access to the city. The assistance from all those attending the property was perfect. They could answer all our questions. Ask about Chris as he was very helpful in saving us money. There is also bikes to ride around the island and a kayak to discover the beautiful reef. If the owner is around during your stay you may have an opportunity to ride the jet ski. If you don't stay at Casa B' Alam, you will miss out on a great time.
I don't have enough great words to say about our Honeymoon Trip to Casa B'Alam! The house was exactly what we were looking for, private, accommodating for lounging and cooking in, but very easy access by both water and road. We used the bikes provided every morning to explore and ended up renting a golf cart through Mata Granda Grocery on our 3rd day so that it was a easy/fast trek to town when need be. The 2 person kayak provided was also a nice afternoon ride out to the reef for snorkeling and swimming around the sand bars. We enjoyed food at both Rojo Bar and Portofino, as well as the groceries for home cooking from Mata Grande. Aurora's Grill at Mata Grande is also an excellent stop for cold beers and good homemade food. Everyone on the island is super friendly. Our house staff - Romel, was very friendly and became a fast friend whom we hope to see again. Brittany was great answering all of my questions prior to arrival and also sending out a new blender! We will definitely be coming back to Casa B'Alam!
We (myself, husband, and two children, ages 9 and 4) stayed at Casa B’alam for a week in March. We had a fantastic trip! Communication and booking with Brittany was easy. Chris helped us get to the house once we got to the island and was very helpful. Gustavo the caretaker was informative and friendly. The kids loved him! He showed us around the property, explained the area and got me fresh coconut water (so good!) We used the kayak frequently and the reef is gorgeous! We loved the rooftop to gaze at the stars. The landscape was immaculate and like a dream, really. My favorite place was in the hammock. I will remember that as heaven for the rest of my life! The beach was beautiful and one of the best on the island. We rented a golf cart and drove to town and neighbor resorts and restaurants too. We loved visiting Portofino and X’tan Ha. Mata Grande delivered groceries for us before we arrived and that was easy and worth the cost. We ordered local rum, beer, coffee and ice cream! All the things we needed. ;) We ate at Jambel’s, Rojo Beach Bar and Portofino when we were up north. In town, we enjoyed Elvi’s, The Melt and Blue Water Grill. The golf cart was really fun for us as a family! We used Searious Adventures for two tours and can recommend them. They picked us up with no problems and brought us back home. We went to Lamanai and a full day snorkel and sail to Caye Caulker. Very fun and friendly and great with our kids! The house was perfect for us. It was comfortable, safe and had everything we needed for a great family vacation. We LOVED our time there.
My husband and I stayed here for one week. When we arrived it was raining and you could still see the beauty radiating! The water is so clean its like a sheet of glass. The house is well cared for and highly recommended. Waking up with the sun was amazing. We took the kayak out and enjoyed some relaxing! It was the perfect place to spend our last week in Belize. All the restaurants may be a bit more expensive on the north side but the service is wonderful. Everyone is so nice!! Honestly the nicest people I've met. Our favorite restaurant was Jamal Jerk!!
If you plan on going back and forth to San Pedro via water taxi we recommend paying for a week.
