Beautiful hotel! Right on the beach, nice pool. Just as an FYI though, this hotel is far away from town- can rent a golf car for the day/week to get to town though. Clean, comfortable and unique rooms.

The staff were outstanding, very friendly and eager to be helpful, yet not intrusive. When I arrived I tripped getting out of the boat and the woman greeting us, Daniela, happened to be a nursing student. She patched me up very professionally. The pool was gorgeous. We did not ride bikes or kayak but both were available. Our snorkeling guide was top notch and very attentive. The menu in the restaurant was extensive for every meal. So, if you were there a week or more, there was plenty of variety. The food was quite good. I loved that there were several varieties of fish and seafood.

Nice but remote resort

A nice resort in a bit of a remote location on Ambergris Caye (about a 20 minute golf cart ride to Secret Beach; 40 to town on a bumpy road). The cabanas are cute and clean, the staff is generally friendly, the restaurant is fine. The small activities shop offers lovely tours to Caye Caulker, as well as some nearby snorkeling and diving, which we highly recommend! Having now stayed on the island, we would recommend something a bit closer to the action, as when there is bad weather, you can be a bit "trapped" here without much to do, but overall, a perfectly nice choice.
