Based on the trip advisor's positive reviews, I exchanged my timesharing thru RCI to this resort. My wife and I were not disappointed staying at this resort. Franco at the reservation helped us when we had problems with Tropic Air like size of luggage and flight change. Check-in and check-out were fast and the resort paid our taxi from and... More

I have been wanting to travel to Ambergris Caye for years. Finally we got to make the trip. We did the exchanged thru RCI after Banyan Bay showed up. There wasn't any hesitation because we had seen these on House Hunters International but they were owners only. Anyway we made the trip and are now looking for a place there.... More

We went to Banyan Bay for the first time this May with our teenage children. The condos are spacious and have all the amenities you need. We didn't use the kitchen for cooking, but the fridge was handy for beverages. The beds were very very comfortable. The air conditioning worked great, I usually forgo the air conditioning in favor of... More

I stayed at Banyan Bay for 5 days, we were in the duplex villa, with a view of the ocean, and not far from the pool. The rooms were spacious and very well kept. The onsite restaurant Rico's was just a few steps from our villa, the food was good. but there could have been a few more choices. The... More

I have stayed at Banyan Bay many years, since it was first opened, and after not being there last year, was happy to be back. If feels like home! Was pleasantly surprised to find updated mattresses, new towels, the pool bar open, new cushions on lounge chairs, and maintenance being done. The staff are all helpful and friendly. Wonderful to...

Our room was right on the beach, Staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms were spacious and well kept up. Rico's restaurant onsite provided good food at reasonable prices. Especially like the coconut pie

This place was okay. Not particularly amazing, but not horrible. The location was good for us as we were diving with the outfit that is located on their dock (Belize Pro, highly recommend), but if we'd been wanting to spend more time in town or experience the nightlife we would have wanted to be more central. The staff was adequate... More

We had unit E2 for one week which is reserved for RCI exchanges which is why we were there. Nice comfortable 2 bedroom unit with king bed but the closest unit to the resort entrance. That was ok with us though. Appearance-wise a very nice looking resort. However there were some obvious drawbacks. The kitchen was poorly stocked for a... More
