Recent Ambergris Caye reviews

  • Returning to 'normal' was so hard after the "Sandcastle"

    "I read the reviews thoroughly before finally deciding on this place,. It took us 12 hours to get there, but upon rounding the corner and seeing the first view of the pier and ocean, and then coming in to find not one but TWO gift baskets from Carolyn (one for the second arrivals in our group who would arrive the next day and stay downstairs), we knew we'd chosen the best. The main family room upstairs has high ceilings, is airy and opens onto the balcony...the beach activities from the rental hut made everything special, as we kayaked to the reef almost daily to snorkel, and my personal favorite was the stand up paddle board, which I used to cruise around the docks in our area. And as so many people have said, William the caretaker rocks! He felt like family, but more importantly, he taught my 3 boys (one with special needs, 15, one just turned 18 and one 21) about making the most out of nature. He showed them spear fishing and how to catch fish (as he does daily) with a coke bottle wrapped with twine -- something endlessly fascinating to my husband who always goes. He also does wood carvings! We brought home a stunning sting ray and hammerhead shark sculpture, and coasters he signed for us. He also gave us his coconut demonstration -- how to break one open if you had to survive..and his key lime juice demonstration. Local honey, local brown sugar, key limes....YUM! Marvin, his friend, also helps out and we loved the dogs so much we brought them in to watch tv with us a couple of nights. :) Here's a YouTube video of the coconut demonstration, done inside the tiki hut bar in the yard: https://youtu.be/8spq4qqKhKw SIDE TRIPS: At Carolyn's recommendation, we used Seaduced for the Caye Caulker Day Sail ($100 per person, day trip) to go to Hol Chan, Shark & Ray Alley, and Caye Caulker. The guides were charming and knowledgeable and the infamous rum punch made for a very social group. We made sure to pick a day when cruise ships weren't in port. We used Caribbean Adventures to visit Altun Ha (we had the whole place to ourselves)and Cave Tubing in one day -- Cave Tubing was amazing. And...definitely call Aurora! She came to the house and made a grilled lobster/ribs feast that was less costly than any of the local restaurants. Mamba was our favorite, Rojo's was good: but fair warning - they are EXPENSIVE, as are all groceries. Tip: Using cash will save you 12.5% on tours. This was a special house, lots of wonderful memories."

  • My sons and I loved staying at Caye Villas!

    "What a wonderful time we had in this beautiful part of the world. The house was perfect location i.e.. not too far from town but far enough for a secluded feeling on the beach. David and his crew are amazing friendly and helpful. I felt safe and relaxed for the week before Christmas. I highly recommend staying here."

  • Beautiful House and Great Management

    "We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. From day 1 talking with the management company of The Palm House, the process was very easy. Both Charles and Courtney were very easy to get ahold of. They responded to my e-mails (always filled with questions and concerns) in a timely manner. We can't thank them enough-Courtney made our trip very easy-making sure we were comfortable in the house and gave us information on activities around the area. We had a party of 8 people-which the house accommodated us all very comfortably. The beach was perfect, in fact there was always someone who maintained the property every morning. There are canoes, bikes and kayaks in the house for us to use-this was nice because we all were able to hang out together in the house while doing some exploring in the area. Captain George is a must! The group really like snorkeling and swimming with baby sharks. He was very very considerate of the people in the boat who were "slightly scared". He was with them the entire time, making sure they also had an enjoyable experience. Everyone in the group I was with talked about returning back to Belize and staying at the Palm House again."

  • 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."
