The smell was terrible and the hotel refused to do anything about. The seaweed built up more each day and they did nothing to remove it. Their adventure office, Monkey Business, kept air freshener in the office and when I complained about the smell, the manager said, "I know, and it's getting worse because the dead fish are getting stuck...

it is a condo resort with alarmed rooms and a full kitchen. Be specific in how many beds you want because they will need to shuffle things around if need be. We were two adults and wanted separate beds but were given a room with one queen and a pull out. The pull out was not sleep worthy so they... More

We had a great time. While we were at San Pedro they had a case of Seaweed on the beaches you couldn't get on the beach .It smelled so bad. But we had rented a golf cart and rode all the Island bar hopping. The staff at the Hotel were great and friendly. The biggest problem They don't serve Lobster... More

Stay somewhere else, this place is over priced and outdated. For $200 per night I expect more. Go to Caye Caulker or for $245 you can stay at Ramon's Village, one of the nicer "resort" place on the island. I'm not the resort type and loved Ak'Bol Yoga retreat at the other end of San Pedro Island which was only... More

Year 2, for staying at Banana Beach Resort, and I love it. My daughter, Jennifer and were only there for 7 days this year, and wished we would have made plans to stay longer, but our schedules just didn't allow it this year. Was so thankful for the security guard this year, she looked out after us, I felt very... More

This place was ok. Room was clean but very dated. There were 2 small pools on property. One is very small and only has 2 tables with chairs by it. It gets zero sun. The other pool does get some sun but in my opinion, the chaise lounge cushions need to be replaced. Wifi is only available in the office... More

Banana Beach is very quaint, meaning picturesque, charming, and pleasing! It is very private but yet close to downtown and shopping. The larger pool has a courtyard atmosphere and one can choose to be in shade or sun with absolutely no wind. The beach area has comfortable loungers and a beautiful view. The outdoor covered bar is located between the... More

Banana Beach. We spent 8 days here. At first we didn't like the place but it grew on us. The rooms are big with good fan and a/c and a good TVs with lots of movies. There is also a fridge. We kept cheese, ham etc for snacks in it. The restaurant looked good but it is expensive and we... More

We spent the last few nights of our honeymoon on Ambergris Caye, Belize at the Banana Beach Resort. It was a great location - walking distance to downtown shopping and restaurants, but far enough away to feel more private. The resort is fairly small for a more intimate feel. The pool was rarely used when we were there and the... More
