Recent Ambergris Caye reviews

  • Relaxing Stay at Sunset Beach Resort

    "I, along with three other friends, recent returned from a great trip to Belize, where we spent part of our time in this condo. The description of the listing was very accurate and the condo fit our needs perfectly. It is in a great location... close enough to easily head into town for dinner or shopping, but far enough away from the activity to be quiet and feel secluded. There are several restaurants and bars within easy walking distance to the resort -- we visited a couple (Island Time, Lone Star, and Nest Grill) during our stay. Chapin does a great job keeping the resort grounds clean and he's available to help with an issues (not that we had any). The pool was great and we never had any issue getting lounge chairs -- admittedly, only about a third of the units were occupied during our stay. The unit is well stocked with plenty of pots, pans, utensils, cups, ice trays, etc. There is even a cabinet with a few beach items, sunscreen, etc. from previous visitors. We loved eating on the private balcony with the gorgeous view and a wonderful breeze. There is also a hammock and several other chairs. We made a couple breakfasts in the unit using eggs and hand-made tortillas from the small market down the street. We also grilled on the BBQ one night. We ended up only doing one snorkeling trip, but it was great. A private tour where they picked us up right from the dock at the resort. We stopped at Hol Chan, Shark Ray Alley, and Coral Gardens, before heading on to Caye Caulker for lunch and time to walk around. The trip was a blast. Since we were there at the end of the dry season, we didn't see many mosquitoes. In fact, rarely used any bug spray and had no bites. We rented a golf cart (highly recommended) which provided us with flexibility to move around the island and we found it a fun way to travel. Note that it can be a bit bumpy for people on the back of the cart. Overall it was a fantastic trip. The other people staying at the resort during our time there were really nice and the atmosphere at the resort is relaxed and friendly. I look forward to visiting Belize again and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again."

  • Peaceful, gorgeous home with great location

    "We recently visited Casa Miradores with another couple, and were very pleased with the location, setting and accommodations. The home is lovely and clean, and is in the best location, in my opinion, after seeing the whole island. It's just south of town where it is nice and peaceful, but still not too far away to drive in town with the golf cart. Beautiful view and pool, and overall just a great find! Mata Rocks staff was awesome and helpful when planning excursions. We did a fantastic catamaran tour with Searious Tours that included 2 snorkeling stops and a trip to Caulker Caye. I highly recommend doing that-it was amazing! The only improvement I would suggest would be to install some blinds for privacy in the Master bedroom. Other than that, it is fantastic!"

  • We keep coming back.

    "We have stayed here 7 or 8 times now. We love it so much we have been kicking around buying a unit. It is small and quiet complex (only ten units) so it's not busy or noisy like the resorts. Much of the time you can have the pool, beach or dock all to yourself. If you take a tour the guides will come pick you up right on the dock. It is clean and well maintained (both the unit and the grounds). We don't pack as much since we have the washer/dryer and we also don't have to eat out all the time with the full kitchen. It is far enough from town to be quiet, yet close enough to do everything you want. The neighborhood is very safe and there is also a security patrol. It is great being able to watch sunrise over the Caribbean each morning. Ana and Erik are quick to respond if there are any issues. For example this year we noticed that some kitchen utensils, food storage containers and glasses were missing. A couple hours later Erik showed up with a bag of new things from the store. Like I said I we keep coming back, so this is our happy place."

  • Incredible place

    "What an amazing time in an incredible place. From the very beginning well over a year ago, Dr. Mark provided an abundant amount of assistance for our group vacation. throughout that time, he directed us to excursions and answered all of the miscellaneous questions from our group. Two weeks out from our vacation My sister and her husband lost their business as well as the entire town for an undetermined amount of time. This was followed by their youngest being hospitalized for five nights due to an intense respiratory infection. Three days before our vacation departure a hurricane tore through Belize with Ambergris just on the north end. I cannot begin to explain the comfort level I was given due to the correspondence with Dr. Mark and his wife Joan during this time. From updates on island conditions to concern for my sister I felt like I was planning this trip with a favorite Uncle who had my needs as a top priority. When we headed off on our adventure to the Island. We were met by Phillip with Tropic Ferry at the airport. He took us to lunch and gave us a tour of the city and took us to the Ferry. The hurricane left an abundant amount of damage in its wake. Captain Alex and his mate cleared a path and got us to the boat and on our way. To the Dolphin we went. As we rounded the south end of Ambergris we could see that most of the docks and palapas over the water had been destroyed. The Blue Dolphin lost their palapa but with a minor twist the dock survived. Standing at the end were Gloria and Armand waving at our boat like we were old friends coming for a visit. Here at last, Vacation started. At our request Gloria prepared a delicious meal of enchiladas with all the sides. We love both houses and our host were exceptional. From assisting with the excursions to tending the house and grounds it doesn't get any better. My daughter even declared Gloria and Armand as another set of grandparents. The rest of our trip was spent exploring the island and going to many bars and restaurants. We enjoyed them all and will be back to visit them again as well as find others. I know this is a long review and I could write more, but I cannot emphasize enough what troubles were taken to ensure our trip. And reading the log from the prior trip who weathered the storm brought goosebumps but showed that the Blue Dolphin is a special place in the most capable hands."
