Staff was great. No restaurant due to renovations. Hot tub was broken. We were able to go next door to a much nicer resort because it was a sister property which was nice. Rooms were nice. Well kept. Pretty far from town.

Nice Property.

Posted Jan 16, 2015
Pros: Very layed back, good snorkeling which was a mojor factor in our selection.
Cons: A bit rustic, no drinking water in unit. Wife had terrible time with mosquitoes, I did not.. TAKE repellant.
Location: A bit far from town.
We had a 6 day stay. Property Manager went above and beyond arranging short-hop air for me prior to arrival, all I did was step us and give ticket agent info and paid for ticket and we were off. An extremely nice week in the sun. Had a few thunder storms but otherwise good weather.

No restaurant, no beach swim access

Posted Jan 13, 2015
Pros: Accommodations, staff.
Cons: Restaurant, beach swim access, although this is of no fault of the hotel, seaweed.
Location: Everything in San Pedro, take bikes, golf cart, or water taxi.
Everything, especially staff were outstanding, restaurant under renovation, daily beach cooking, and restaurant service shared with Coco Beach, very expensive. No beach swim access.

wonderful pool, great service. beautiful place

Posted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: the service number one. pool was outstanding. the chairs at the end of the dock perfect for just relaxing.
Cons: internet was spotty. had to move to find a strong signal. hot water pressure was terrible. dribble showering.
Location: to many to mention. great place. eat at caliente in san pedro for lunch..amazing. try the blackened fish sandwich. wonderful...
loved this place. people who work here are amazing and very helpful. do not expect a swimming beach with crashing waves. this is not it. it took 2 days to understand the laid back atmosphere. go with it...it is worth it.

Nice Ambergris Caye escape.

Posted Dec 7, 2014
Pros: Room close to pool and beach access. Resort staff exceptional. Close to Tuff Enuff excursion departure point. Comfortable bed/room. Charging to room.
Cons: Consistent water temperature of resort's hot tub (way too hot or too cold). Water pressure in room shower was weak.
Location: Great location. Restaurants nearby. Tuff Enuff snorkeling/diving excursions right outside resort off pier. San Pedro close enough to bike to.
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.

Comfortable Stay in Paradise!

Posted Dec 3, 2014
Pros: Nice location, large rooms, comfortable pool
Cons: Rooms need to be upgraded, and better solution for drinking water
Location: The Tuff Enough crew at the dock is great, and can set you up with diving, snorkeling, and more. Also, a few restaurants within walking distance.
While we have stayed many times in Ambergris Caye, this was our first time at Belizean Shores. The rooms are large and comfortable, though a little worn. Took a long time to get hot water and the water pressure was very low. You can't drink the water from the faucet (they told us this 3 times during our check-in) so they provide you with 3 bottles of water, which you then must fill up from a faucet outside. Other hotels have provided a 5 gallon water jug on the counter, which is MUCH more convenient. The pool is nice, and Ruby at the Swim Up bar is awesome! Sadly, the restaurant was closed for remodeling. Would have been great to know that ahead of time! However, you can use the pool and services at their sister property two doors down.

Nice property

Posted Dec 2, 2014
We enjoyed this hotel and the sister property close by. Beautiful grounds with lots of plants and palm trees, nicely lit in the evening. Friendly, hard working staff. Beautiful, tranquil pool with pool bar. The upper level unit was spacious with a bed up in the loft. Tiny kitchen, small bath - far from luxurious, but comfortable. No wifi inside- barely on the balcony and best around the pool-just steps outside the door. Steep steps to the upper units- not for anyone who has a hard time with steps! Good food next door at their gorgeous pool bar-and small cafe for coffee/baked goods there also, Pack/bring snack food or cereals, etc- hard to get on the island and 3x the cost as US!
