Recent Belize 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."

  • Beautiful Ocean Front Villa in Placencia!

    "My husband and I stayed in 1C at Los Porticos for our Honeymoon this past summer and couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to visit. The Villa is updated and spacious with unbeatable views of the sea from nearly every angle. Plus with two bedrooms, two and a half baths, open floorplan, and two outdoor balconies there was more than enough room for us and the space can easily accommodate at least two couples or a small family. We loved having access to the private pool right on the beach and also enjoyed the location. Los Porticos is just close enough to the village that we could ride bikes or take a quick cab ride but far enough away that it still felt private. There were also a few restaurants within walking distance which was an added convenience. The staff at Los Porticos were also great and even though we had trouble booking some excursions due to the time of year they did their best to accommodate. We actually ended up getting caught in a tropical storm which unexpectedly extended our vacation and I can’t say enough about how much they went out of their way to ensure we were taken care of. By the end of our stay we were on a first name basis with most of the staff and the place almost felt like a second home. Bottom Line: We loved our experience in Placencia. There is plenty to do, the people are nice, the food is good, the scenery is beautiful, and the Villa is amazing! We definitely have plans to go back and when we do we hope to stay here again!"

  • Beautiful Place and Secluded Getaway - Look No Further!

    "Ocean's Edge had a magical pull for both my boyfriend and I. We were looking for a private getaway, without being in a hotel chain, where we were able to call our retreat our "home away from home" and it was just that. When we arrived, we were the only guests and had the private beach to ourselves for a few days prior to our neighbor checking into their house (two houses share the beach) and surprise, it was Virginia - a guest who has stayed at these houses a few times and we couldn't have lucked out with a better neighbor! Although we had a neighbor, we still felt like it was our very own private special place and it was great to also have the resources of someone who had been here before and knew the lay of the land! Every morning, my boyfriend and I found ourselves waking up right before sunrise to witness some of the most beautiful sunrises from the cozy chairs or hammocks under the pilapa, before finding ourselves slowly getting ready to do anything or nothing at all. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and we enjoyed the fresh coconuts, figuring out how to husk them and then cook with them as well. We did utilize the bicycles as well as the kayaks during our stay and would advise guests to do so as well. If you are staying here, and are looking to go into town (Placencia) at all, either rent a car or just learn the bus schedule. The bus schedule is super easy to learn and is super cheap ($2 one way into Placencia, the stop is across the street from the houses) but please bear in mind that the last trip going back to Maya Beach leaves Placencia at 2:30pm. Ocean's Edge Beach Houses is literally one dock away from the best restaurant, Maya Beach Bistro, that we ate at and we felt like we lived there for happy hour daily and fell in love with their staff who welcomed us like we were locals. Staying at Ocean's Edge has spoiled me and it is hard to find future accommodations in other countries as my expectations are now really high. Thank you for being great to work with throughout my planning process, Frankie, as she was patient with me while planning this trip as I had plenty of questions from the get go! We can't wait for our return back to Belize and Ocean's Edge! I am still dreaming of Belize..."

  • Fabulous Condo

    "We stayed two weeks at this fabulous condo and can't say enough about the resort, staff and of course the condo. It is decorated beautifully, has an awesome view of the ocean and a kitchen complete with everything you could want to use. We eat in most of the time and were able to cook meals just as if we were in our own kitchen. We did eat a wonderful meal at Rain. There is a very convenient market on the premises too so you can get some snacks and stuff. We did get a golf cart and the drive into town is easy and fun. We found everyone at the resort and on the island in general to be very friendly. There is a lot to do on the island. We felt like we had the best condo in the resort. It is steps to the pools, pool bar and beach. We thank the owners for a great service and we hope to be back for another visit some day."
