Recent San Pedro reviews

  • 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."

  • 50th Anniversary Paradise

    "House manager Alfred and his dog Po met our water taxi at the dock. He welcomed us with open arms and our grand kids fell in love with Po on the spot. The house is beautiful and was set up exactly as we had requested. Our welcome dinner was great, Dianie is a wonderful cook, so much so we ate several meals at the house. Our son's said "Alfred advise is never wrong", here's why; He told us Monday and Tuesday would be the best days to tour the Mian ruins and snorkel, he was so right as just one example. Also, the weather was stormy on our day of departure so Alfred took the initiative to converted our planned water taxi back to the mainland to a airplane hop. A lifesaver as far as we were concerned. Dianie prepared a great Thanksgiving dinner for us of shrimp and lobster and we felt so comfortable with Alfred and Dianie we asked the to share dinner with us. We had a wonderful evening with many stories about Belize and it's history, things you'll never learn from a travel guide. The two of them were always available with caring help and wisdom. And the golf carts were a hoot. It's evident the house and property are a labor of love by it's owner Tony Whitehouse and the caretakers he has chosen. The house and property and the island was a perfect place for our extended family of 11 to celebrate our 50th. We hoped for something great and BaHa Mar sure did the job. If there were 10 stars to pick from to rate the property we would have chosen 12."

  • Excellent Property, Great Service, Wonderful Location, Responsive Owner

    "This was the perfect VRBO for my trip. - Mike, the owner, was very responsive to my emails and questions - The property itself is spacious, clean, modern, and has a perfect location for those looking for a beach getaway as it is on the water and close to a dock and pool - The property is wonderful and the staff will bend over backwards to make sure you are having a great time - I'm a very picky about deciding on a place to stay and did extensive research on this site and the hotels in the area and I couldn't be more pleased with my experience One small issue - the resort is expanding so there is nearby construction. If you are an early riser, it won't impact you but once the construction is complete it won't be an issue any longer."

  • Great Vacation!

    "We just returned from a great stay at Casa Amarillo. We were a family of 11 with 6 adults, 3 teenagers and 2 tweens. We loved it! We rented the entire house and loved the privacy and beauty of the surroundings. We arrived a week after a hurricane hit the island and we were shocked at how well they had cleaned everything and had the house and grounds ready for our group. We rented 3 golf carts for trips into town at Carts Belize and we enjoyed having them. It is a rough bumpy ride to and from town but we just looked at it as an adventure and laughed along the way. Would HIGHLY recommend bug spray for the journey and at night around the house. We had meals cooked for us twice while we stayed. Both meals were wonderful. We had a traditional Belizean meal when we arrived after traveling all day cooked by Robert's sister because Marfa was ill. Marfa also cooked chicken fajitas for us one night after an all day excursion. We LOVED her salsa and guacamole and could have eaten it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday. Robert was great and helped fixed the volleyball net, kept the pool and grounds clean, and arranged for Carts Belize to fix a flat tire we had on one of the golf carts. The house is very comfortable but do not expect a 5 star hotel. There are air conditioners in each bedroom which helps at night when you sleep. The beds are ok but not luxurious. We would have enjoyed a few more towels and beach towels for our party size but we made do. Kitchen was well stocked with plates, cups, utensils, etc.. Wifi worked great indoors and outside and we enjoyed the TV's in the evening so we could watch the Olympics. We enjoyed playing volleyball, sand hockey and relaxing in the pool or hammocks. Rosa was awesome too. She met us right on time at the airport and helped answer many questions we had. She provided a phone for us to use and was a phone call away if we needed her. She made great recommendations regarding tours and excursions. She gave us a book that had many recommendations from local companies and other guests regarding tours, restaurants and also included a history of Belize. Very helpful. Rosa also helped arrange our trip to the mainland for Cave Tubing and Zip-lining. Suya Tours picked us up at our dock for a great morning of snorkeling at Hol Chan, Shark Ray Alley and the Coral Gardens. The rest of the time we stayed around the house having fun as a family. We loved out time at Casa Amarillo and would stay again!"
