WE LOVED ATHEN'S GATE because it really is a special place! They only have 12 rooms that are all either 2 or 3 bedrooms and are all oceanfront. We prefer smaller places because we find them more relaxing. People often say in reviews that they can't imagine staying anywhere else and that is the case with us and Athen's Gate.... More

Last year, my wife and I were lucky enough to discover Athens Gate resort in San Pedro, Belize. This gorgeous resort captures the charm and beauty of San Pedro in a way few resorts can. First there's the unsurpassed beauty of the sea and beachfront view at the resort. The beach and ocean view at this location is one of... More

We loved Athens Gate! Beautiful condos. We were two couples staying in a 2 bedroom. The only slightly negative thing I could say is that the difference in size in the 2 bedrooms is substancial. The master bedroom was beautiful and spacious, while the second room with twin beds put together to make a king was very tight. The service... More

Athens Gate was even better than expected! We had the three bedroom condo on the third floor, and traveled with two other couples. The stairs were a little brutal after a long day or night out on the town but the view was worth it! The only downfall of the room was that the 3rd bedroom was substancially smaller than... More

Bigger Picture - Point yourself towards the sea, and use Athens Gate as a comfortable landing pad between water adventures. Activities - We brought teenagers for Spring Break and would recommend activities in this order: First - Snorkle trip to Hol Chan, followed by swimming with the sharks. This gets the whole family excited and serves as orientation for marine... More

The accommodation was simply amazing. The finishings were stellar. We stayed in a two bedroom condo. Overall, we LOVED it but we were disappointed by three things. None of these things are directly related to Management but we figured it's on a "good to know" basis for travelers. 1) The second bedroom. Although beautifully decorated, be advised that the second... More

I cannot say enough about this place. They do make you feel at home. We went with another couple and shared the 3 bedroom oceanfront unit on the fourth floor. The view from there was amazing, but it's a lot of stairs. Next time we will stay on the second floor. Elizar is very attentive. We would follow him wherever... More

I cannot say enough good things about this resort and the staff. As soon as we arrived we felt at home. We weren't allowed to lift a finger and were pampered in every accommodation possible, to booking activities, getting a taxi, even advice on what to do or where to go. Ruth on staff was beyond amazing and wanted us... More

This is a beautiful property, just a bit off the beaten path, with spacious units, attentive staff, good security and meticulous housekeeping. Our 3 bedroom, two bath unit was perfect for us, especially with the in-unit laundry and nice kitchen. The whole place has purified water. You can swim off the dock, or take a dip in the pool. (A...

Our week at Athens Gate went by way too fast. Amenities well above our expectations and even better than the wonderful accomodations was the people. Lori, Joe, Ruth, and the incomparable "E" made our stay seem like we were part of the family. We are recommending it to friends already. Thanks for a lasting memory. Larry and Joyce Tucson, USA
