Private Casita on the beach
Posted Jan 14, 2017
The rooms are comfortable. Bed comfort is acceptable. The staff was helpful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, so they upgraded us to the room on the corner next to the beach and facing the pool and open-air restaurant and bar. It wasn't ready either, but we enjoyed our complimentary rum punch (they didn't skimp on the rum) while our room was prepared. Everything happens in island time. I was on vacation, so I chilled out and enjoyed the experience. The upgraded room on the corner was the best one in this resort. The restaurant was handy when I didn't want to pay $15 Belize ($7.50 US) for a taxi to travel the mile or so into town. The food was good and so was service. Food is pricey on the island. And you must buy bottled water. The staff arranged for taxis when needed and booked a snorkeling excursion for us. Laundry services are available as well. We walked along the beach to visit shops in town. This was an inexpensive way to check out the island for the first time. Next time, I may stay closer in to town. But I will always hire a taxi if I need to go long distances instead of renting a golf cart - the roads are very narrow and the driving is chaotic! Loved the experience and want to go back.
