Recent San Pedro reviews

  • Perfect accommodations for 2 moms and 3 teens and Alvin is the best!

    "We had an amazing stay at Diamond Reef. We were two friends traveling together with three teens and we wouldn't change a thing. Alvin is like a private driver, personal concierge and trip director all in one. He couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. He arranged an all-day mainland excursion for us. It was a full day but not exhausting - Mayan ruins, zip lining and cave tubing with a delicious lunch. If you go, ask for Earl. He was our personal guide and it was worth it just to spend the day with him. Alvin also arranged snorkeling in the Mexico Rocks for a fraction of what the resort nearby charges. Coordinating trips into San Pedro was easy. He checked in with us every evening to arrange transportation for the next day. We enjoyed the 15 minute boat ride into town (we live in a big city and are used to spending time on public transportation). We grocery shopped and prepared most of our meals in the condo. The kitchen is well appointed - we didn't want for anything. The setting can't be beat. Stunning sunsets, moonrises, a private beach, a refreshing pool, kayaks.Every day was a great adventure but also very relaxing. I've recommended Diamond Reef to many people and would go back without hesitation. Reserving and coordinating through Rickey was a breeze."

  • Excellent place to stay on Ambergris Caye

    "After reading all of the excellent reviews I chose Athens Gate as the place to stay for our first trip to Belize. Man was that a good call! My wife and I along with another couple stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit on the 4th floor. No elevator, but the stairs were a good work out. The units are right on the beach, with large living and dining areas and a large master suite. The second bedroom was quite small, but adequate for our group. The lanai overlooking the pool and Caribbean was huge. The staff was very friendly and took care of everything we needed. Special thanks to E for setting up our snorkeling trip (on the Lady Leslie catamaran - a must do excursion if you go to Ambergris Caye) , arranging a golf car rental and cabs for us, and for turning us on to Sushi night at the Blue Water Grill on the beach in San Pedro. Soto, the bar tender (and personal chef) provided the best service ever, especially the lobster, fish and vegetable dinner grilled to perfection. Setting up the reservation and all transfers required to get to Athens Gate was a breeze thanks to Lori. She took care of all the details for us. We took a snorkeling trip with Lady Leslie Tours to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve at the Reef, Shark and Sting Ray Alley and Caye Caulker. Martin Leslie and his sons are excellent hosts, and snorkeling guides. Best boat ride ever and I will do this trip every time I come back to Belize. The restaurant across the street from Athens Gate has good food and you have to try the lobster fajitas. There is a small market a couple of blocks away and larger grocery stores on the south side of San Pedro. I would definitely stay at Athens Gate again and recommend it to friends and family."

  • Excellent Location and Everything You Need in Accomodations

    "Absolutely perfect place to stay! Amazing view from the deck where we spent all of our time if we were at the villa. We visited with our son, my nephew, and another couple. We had plenty of room with the three bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) and living areas. Pictures and descriptions are accurate on this site. It's 1 of 9 in the building and it's on the top floor so you have a great view. Swimming or snorkeling off the pier was great as well. We had everything we needed in the kitchen when we cooked in or made our own fruity drink mixes. When we didn't feel like cooking/making cocktails ourselves, we just went across the street to a great restaurant - they were super nice and made excellent food including cooking the fish we caught in three different ways for our enjoyment...it was awesome! We went to the bakery every day - it is a must! Again they were super nice and made the most amazing baked goods. George provided an extensive amount of information that was very valuable and he was very responsive to any questions we had. I have traveled to numerous places nationally and internationally and I have never had the quality of information about the location I was visiting and the place I was staying at that I did for Villa Natalia. Excellent info/service George! Armando kept the place looking super nice by cleaning the pool, raking the sand, sweeping the steps clean, watering the plants, etc...and even washing our golf cart! The villa location is PERFECT...in/around San Pedro things can be busy...we were just far enough away to avoid the hubbub but close enough to get anything we needed, including restaurants (other than the two right by us), fresh baked goods, fresh groceries to cook at the villa, beer/liquor, basic stuff from the store, etc. Besides enjoying the area around Villa Natalia we went reef fishing with Suya Tours and snorkeling on Sirena Azul. Reef fishing was a blast but staying on the boat was as much a challenge as was hooking the fish...we had some unusually high winds and big swells. But I would do it again...as time goes on the stories of the waves and the fish get bigger and better. Villa Natalia is a superb place, in a great location, with exactly what you’re looking for to get away, enjoy the Caribbean, and have a great vacation! George has a fabulous place."

  • Fantastic Vacation!!!

    "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."
