Beautiful facilities, beach and bugs not so nice

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: Pool, king size bed, beach towels available for use, bike rentals available
Cons: Make bikes available for free like the kayaks
Location: Sea kayaks, biking into town or around the island, playing in the pool, visiting nearby hotel restaurants for meals
Stayed 6 days and 5 nights mid-April. Beautiful cabana with small kitchen, living area, nice big kind bed. Lovely big pool and lots of spots to sit and enjoy the sun or shade. Unfortunately we were both eaten up by bugs while relaxing pool-side -- seriously I got 8 bites on my back alone within a period of a few minutes! There isn't really any beach to speak of - there's a few feet of sand and then lots of stinky seagrass. The restaurant is okay but pretty basic; not overpriced though. The hotel advertises the convenience of a tour company located right on their dock, called Tuff-Enuff. We did two tours - 1) afternoon snorkeling and 2) cave tubing + zip lining on the mainland. The snorkeling was okay but the mainland trip was exceedingly expensive - almost $600US for 2 people for a few hours. Definitely NOT worth it, and we later saw much better deals offered by other groups in San Pedro.

Wonderful, Reasonable Priced Hotel

Posted Apr 16, 2015
I came to Belizean Shores Resort with a friend for a girls trip. Even before we arrived we were so appreciative and impressed with how the resort reached out to us to share the best way to get to the resort. It can be overwhelming trying to figure out how to get to the hotel but Levi and others took great care of us. It made our trip seamless. Additionally, the Tuff E Nuff water taxi is extremely convenient and the guys are great! Belizean Shores is reasonably priced with a great pool, large rooms, terrific staff and just an all around wonderful resort!

Beautiful resort!

Posted Apr 8, 2015
Pros: Excellent staff that was attentive and helpful. Beautiful grounds. Very well-maintained accommodations.
Location: Capricorn restaurant is not worth the cost, I would not recommend going there. We had our most expense and worst meal there.
We stayed at Belizean Shores March 29 through April 3, 2015. Our stay was fabulous. The staff is attentive to your needs, the condos are very nicely furnished and the kitchens are small, but they have everything you need to cook meals. Our daily housekeeping was great. The grounds and beach are well-maintained, especially with that weird seaweed/bog stuff that comes in every night. The food we had at the restaurant was really good, they do run out of things occasionally, but that is part of island living. We had a gold cart delivered and picked up during our stay, and it was effortless. Belizian Shores took care of booking our flights from the mainland and back, which was really helpful. We went as a family of 4 and have a really relaxing, fun vacation.

Excellent Ambergris Accommodations

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: Price was just right!
Cons: Only problem we had was poor water pressure at times.
Location: Restaurants within walking distance, golf cart accessible to town or water taxi.
Staff was super friendly and helpful. They are able to assist in golf cart rental, water taxi transport and were very accommodating. We stayed in a one bedroom ground floor and it was just right. Good location from town along newly finished paved road which makes golf cart travel easy. Restaurants within walking distance and pool bar was very nice.

Not for me!

Posted Mar 28, 2015
Pros: The premise was nice.pleasing to look at and very comfortable.
Cons: Replace bottled water every day. Fix the restaurant. Heat the pool. Keep the prices the same
Location: Nothing to do at the hotel but you could take the water taxi and do things. Belize is an island great for people who enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving.
A day late arriving due to AMerican airlines.they are terrible.1 1/2 hours and 2 boat rides you arrive at hotel. Place is lovely to look at. No restaurant on premise. You get one bottle of water and the rest of the time you fetch it yourself. no beach and pool is freezing. At the bar the price changes on soda every day or depending who is serving. 45 minutes to go anywhere and hands are always out looking for money. If your looking to relax by the pool or beach and be able to go in the water not for you. Maybe in the summer the pool warms up. As far as recommending this place if this is the type of vacation you looking for then this is the place for you.

Great beachfront close to town

Posted Mar 17, 2015
Staff was excellent and very friendly. Not crowded, quiet, beautiful landscaping, good food. Easy access to town on the new paved road or water taxi. The pool was great with in pool bar. Order lunch at the bar and it's ready in short amount of time or have it delivered to your room. Will definitely go back again.

Lovely family resort

Posted Mar 14, 2015
Pros: The friendliest of the staff and the well maintained facilities. And the location and views -fabulous.
Cons: As mentioned above, more sand is needed in areas. Also, a little gift shop for necessities would be nice.
Location: There are Fantastic excursions right from the resort thru Tuff Enuff tours. Snorkeling is best I have seen. Many restaurants in walking distance.
We had a wonderful time at this resort. The staff are among the friendliest I have ever encountered. I love that they meet you at the dock and take you directly to your room to settle in - not to the front office to check in. The food was very good, purified water was readily available and the excursions with Tuff Enuff Tours could be scheduled and left right from the resort. The only thing I would improve is that the sand is scarce in some areas. E.g. Walking down toward the water and on the volleyball court there is little sand in areas and hard surface underneath.

Beautiful grounds and large rooms.

Posted Mar 5, 2015
Pros: Rooms, grounds, pool, staff, restaurant
Cons: Bar prices were high, very low water pressure
Location: We rented golf carts to go downtown to shop and go to bars and restaurants. Many resorts with restaurants within walking distance.
The rooms were large and clean with very big balconies. Staff was friendly and helpful. We ate many meals at the restaurant and they were reasonably priced and most were good. Drinks are expensive so we went to the local markets to purchase our own. You can walk for miles on the beach path. There is a lot of algae on the beaches but you can use their free kayaks and swim or snorkel beyond the pier. Over all, a great place for a relaxing vacation.

Hi Babs, thanks for taking the time to advise other travelers. We are sorry the Sargassum seaweed was present during your stay. It isn't always like this, but this year it has affected Florida, Texas, the Caribbean and more. We look forward to the opportunity of hosting you again.

Excellent staff

Posted Mar 4, 2015
Pros: Everything.
Location: Caye Caulker, marine reserve snorkeling, San Pedro (10 minutes away by speed boat)
I'm so grateful to the staff at Belizean Shores because they truly elevated my experience in Ambergris Caye. Everyone was so friendly and helpful! It was also ridiculously easy to book excursions with Tuff e Nuff at the end of our dock. Would definitely stay here again on my return trip.
