Great weather and warm water made several days of snorkeling a real treat. Guides were knowledgeable and accommodating. We swam with nurse sharks and a manatee as well as many other fish and saw at least 9 types of coral. Seeing the Mayan ruins at Lamanai was well worth the day. In the evening we ate at several of the many restaurants that were within walking distance and enjoyed each. This is the end of the rainy season so we needed bug spray as well as lots of sun tan lotion. Daily showers didn't stop activities.

Very nice stay during Thanksgiving 2014. Exceptional resort staff (thanks Penny, Stephanie, Rhoda). Nice accommodations. Walking distance to restaurants. Unfortunately, restaurant was under renovation while there. Weather was not ideal (cloudy and/or rained all but one day there) but still enjoyed everything we set out to do. Had a massage on our resort balcony (one of the better massages I've had and reasonable). Ate best meal at Capricorn restaurant. Thanks to Clive (GM) and Maggie for a great night and the private boat taxi service! I had the seafood combination (lobster, stone crab claw and shrimp) and my fiancée had the pork tenderloin (best we've ever had)! They brought out a slice of double chocolate rum cake with a candle and sang happy birthday to my fiancée and didn't charge for the cake:). Yum! Also had a nice Thanksgiving buffet meal at Coco Beach Resort (Cocoblanca Restaurant). Tammy and Rick have just taken over restaurant services there and are already making great improvements! We enjoyed meeting them and trying their food. Our last night on Ambergris Caye, we just wanted a sandwich and salad. They graciously let me order a BLT even though it was not on the menu. Highly recommend Belizean Shores Resort, Cocoblanca Restaurant and Tuff Enuff half day snorkel trip to Shark Ray Alley to swim with sharks and stingrays.

The staff was outstanding. The rooms were excellent. The beach was so close that you only had to take a few steps and you were in the water. I really enjoyed the use of the bikes (most resorts charged to use them).
The staff of Mata Rocks went out of their way to make our stay worry free and a wonderful experience. They booked all of our excursions and made great recommendations on where to have a bite to eat.
I had a chance to meet the owners one evening and they were as friendly as their staff.
The hotel bar on the beach was a great place to gather and visit with other guests and share experiences of the day with. All this while having some amazing rum punch. You simply cannot go wrong with Mata Rocks.

Sunbreeze Suites is everything we needed. Close to the shore for walks on the beach. All the tours you book will pick you up and drop you off at the dock. We ate dinner at the restaurant but also ate at other restaurants close by. When you walk out on to the streets you will see lots of locals with there handmade wood crafts and jewellery made with shells and red corals and turquoise just beautiful stuff for sell. Shops and grocery stores are right close by. So the location is excellent. Our suite was like a little home away from home. The bedroom, washroom and kitchen and dining sitting room were all separate rooms. We could get up in the morning and make our own breakfast and eat the local fruit we bought. Then have coffee on the balcony with a gorgeous view and the famous San Pedro breeze. Staff was friendly. We ordered the 5 gallon water jug for our room and had it delivered right away. Our house keepers were sweethearts. If you need anything like if you run out of coffee you just have to ask them. Oh and the coffee they give you for the coffee machine in the room is sooo good. Thankyou Sunbreeze Staff for making us feel like home.

A great hotel on the beach with separate thatched roof rooms. Food is the best you could ask for and the service is excellent. They have a dive center on site. Only one problem is you have to take a boat to town, but you can walk to two other hotels if you want to take in a different meal. You can rent a boat with a guide to take you fishing first then snorkel then you go and have a bar-b-q what you brought in fishing. That was so much fun.

We had a wonderful stay 6 night stay at Royal Caribbean Resort and highly recommend it to anyone. Yoran, Carice and the staff were so nice and friendly. They were there to answer any questions we had and even helped us with contacting various local companies to help us confirm our tours...since our cellphones did not work in Belize. The front desk staff also helped us book our Hol Chan snorkeling tour and the tour company picked us up from the resorts own private dock. (however, the snorkel tour itself was pretty strenuous...not recommended for kids...just a little side note )
The resort was peaceful and quiet and the grounds were beautifully kept. If you are looking to relax, this is the place to go. They have the largest pool in San Pedro and they also have a small beach on the premises with chairs to lie out in the sun. The resort is just a short golf-cart ride away from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Pedro. You can even rent a golf-cart on site for a much lower price than other rental establishments. There is a fridge and microwave in the cabin and a TV with every channel imaginable. The room itself is huge and spacious and the bed comfortable. The only complaint we had during our stay was that there were some ants in the room, however when we told the front desk they took care of the problem and it was fine.

"Beautiful location, great staff, painful policies"
Quiet, secluded, relaxed - 7 miles north of San Pedro. Perfect place if you want some R and R. If you're heading there be sure to stop in San Pedro for groceries etc. before heading out - there is little once you're there (although the bar staff makes excellent drinks).
Everything at the hotel is shut on a Saturday (with the exception of the bar): the shop is closed, no kayak or bikes are available for use, no excursions, the staff were all in a meeting for over an hour in the morning. It's their policy. The policy does not change (opening the shop for an hour on the saturday would have solved our gripes and those of other guests). The hotel caters to people staying on a week - arriving on a saturday - hence the policies.
