Fantastic Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful week with 4 of our best friends at Casa Redondra. The house is extremely comfortable and had everything we needed. The pool and the view of the ocean was incredible.

We used Marfa the cook that was recommended for 7 meals and all of them were spectacular. We were all wishing we had booked more meals with her.

Victor the caretaker and his wife were extremely helpful and always available.

I would say a golf cart is a must. We rented the 6 person one and had so much fun going to dinner a few nights, shopping, and bar hoping. Check out Island time and their tacos and margerittas. They were delicious.

I can truly say this was one of the most amazing vacations I have ever been on.

One suggestion would be to spend the extra money and take the 18 minute plane ride from the airport in Belize to San Pedro's instead of the one and a half hours on a boat.

We did a boat trip using Suya tours that took us snorkeling and then to a private island to enjoy the fresh fish and conch that our guys driving the boat speared while we snorkeled. It was delicious and so were the sides they prepared. I would definitely do it again.

A Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Redondo for 7 nights in July and after planning our vacation for 5 months, it was everything we hoped it would be and more. The house is exactly like the photos which was a relief. The caretaker ELVIS and his son ERWIN and wife were just the most kind, accomodating and efficient family to take care of CR. Erwin, 14, even stayed with my 8 year old son a couple of nights & took him fishing. They were there when we needed them but never in the way. We had 5 adults and 1 child & the bedrooms / living space was perfect for our group. There are 3 cabanas outside and we used all of them. There was so much beautiful outdoor space for everyone to spread out. The grounds are beautifully maintained by Elvis. The pool is kept up daily and Elvis's wife attends to the interior with meticulous detail. There is seagrass in the water at the beach but still some spots that my son played in. The best water is out at the dock, which is why you find docks at most places on the island. Bring or rent your own snorkel, I think CR has one or two. There are some baby sting rays buried in the sand off the dock so be careful! There are bioluminecense at night- magnificent! Erwin has a fishing pole and you can get bait/ sardines by the airport. A larger sign for the house off the road would be helpful (my dad passed it up everytime!) THere is currently construction next door and quite noisy during the day. We were worried about the golf cart ride into town but we rather enjoyed the adventure. It is very easy to get around the island. We LOVED dinners cooked by Marfa, and she gave us all massages one afternoon. She babysits too! I recommend having her stock the fridge before you arrive.

The Tropic Ferry picked us up at the Belize City airport, took us to a restaurant on the water from which the boat took us directly to our dock at Casa Redondo. Island Adventures came out to the house and we negotiated 2 carts for one week for $400 US, when Elvis noticed a flat tire, they repaired it without us even knowing. Mayan ruins south of the Island, take bug spray, $10 us each & no pyramids, but historical & interesting. Use Trip Advisor for restaurants. Ak Bol for Yoga. Beach bars: Hurricanes, Palapa, Wayos. Food: Elvis is best! Black Orchid nice & in the n'hood. Victoria House for drinks, very fancy. Rubi Moon women & girls boutique. For casual to go food: Robins Jamaican in n'hood and Waraguma pupusas and lobster burritos- omg! Use Suya Tours- Daniel was the best guide!!

Colorado/California Contingent

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at Casa Redonda (bottom floor only) after a 4 night stay on the mainland in the Jungle. There were 9 of us in our party; 3 children and 6 adults, ages ranged from 7 to 69. My husband and I, our 2 daughters, their husbands, and our 3 grandchildren. We had a fantastic time! We could have lounged by the pool for those 3 days and been perfectly happy. The accommodations were fine for us. The kids stayed in one bedroom and the 3 adult couples had bedrooms to ourselves.

Mary was very helpful with arranging for Manolo to pick us up at the water taxi dock. We rented golf carts while we were there, strongly advised, and had a bouncing good time tooling around the island on these. Elvis and his son were very helpful and attentive to our needs, cleaned the pool and the grounds every day. Maria was terrific at cleaning the house every day and folding our laundry if she found any in the dryer.

We also booked Suya tours on our last day there and they took us snorkling, then drove us to a small island for lunch and took us right to the hotel dock in Belize City where we were staying our last night before departing for home the next morning.

Luckily, while we were there, it was quite windy so we were hardly bothered by misquitos. There were a few flies. There are flies and misquitos where we live in the states as well. We had no problem with garbage dump smells.

I would highly recommend Casa Redonda as a wonderful place to visit. Thanks to all the staff for such an enjoyable vacation.

Absolute Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! Has every comfort you'd possibly need the staff is attentive and courteous! Anything you ask for they are happy to help you; this is true in all of Belize! The local people are so friendly and do not harass or hassle you to buy things but are very helpful when you inquire.

The house and grounds are immaculately cared for and comfortable. The house is clean and the beds are comfortable, complete with rain shower heads in the shower. There is plenty of room to lounge and relax. The pool is very clean and when the waterfall is turned out it is so tranquil. The convenience of the pier cannot be overstated! It was an adventure to get to town on the golf carts which is about a 30 minute ride but when people came and picked us up on the pier for tours it was a dream. Also, I was proposed to on that pier during our stay! My boyfriend and I went out at night to look at the stars and he popped the question :) Belize is a magical place!

I HIGHLY recommend Scuba Steve located right across from the water taxi in San Pedro for any and all tours. It is a family operation, as opposed to a commercial type operation, and very competitively priced! They are very welcoming and know the waters like the back of their hand! They are accommodating, professional, and fun!

If you're reading this and debating whether to go to Belize- do it! I have traveled to over 40 countries and Belize is amazing! I can't wait to go back- maybe for my honeymoon?! ;)

A Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

My father booked this trip for him and spouse (our mom) and his four children, their spouses and children. My dad died in September, but we all decided to go anyway and bring his ashes to sprinkle in the Belize waters. We were a group of 12 aged 11- 82. Elvis and Maria were kind and accomplished caretakers, taking care of all our needs. The golf carts that Mary arranged were essential. It was so nice to have a dock where you could be picked up for fishing, scuba, and snorkeling adventures. Suya Tours provided us with fantastic scuba and snorkeling plans. The best snorkel I've ever seen at Hol Chan even in the rain! Marfa, the cook that you can hire, is an excellent cook, like the previous writer expressed and I would definitely recommend her, especially if you are arriving late and you'd to have some dinner and breakfast and you can ask her to pick up whatever food and drink you'd like to have in the house before you make the trip to town (but there is a service charge and you need to pay in cash for her services). BUT it was delicious!!

We rented both the top and bottom floors. All nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable. No complaints. Steps are steep and slick to the upstairs if you have folks with those issues (no elevators); but both up and downstairs have kitchens and serving areas.

I have been to Mexico and Central America for over 30 years. There are always sand fleas and mosquitos, so get over it....If there is a magical cure, let us know. Find something that will work for you. We used Repel this year and still came home chewed up. We used to use Skin so Soft by Avon. Maybe some cintronella candles?

Also my husband is handicapped and has balance issues. Elivs tried to help out with providing a plastic chair for the shower. If you have shower balance needs, bring your own stuff.

Final thing, my son left 2 DVDs at the property when we left. My brother stayed an extra day in San Padro, not in the house. I contacted Mary (and even with our lacking cell, phone, text and email..and it was Elvis' day off) Elvis was able to find my brother and bring the DVDs to him. That's great service for you!

Fantastic Holiday!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we landed everything was organized from golf carts to tours. We were greeted with a very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Especially Eldis who went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. The house was beyond beautiful and the views were spectacular. Casa Redonda certainly exceeded my expectations and we are looking forward to returning next year with our children.
