My second time staying here as a guest of the Paz family. Megan waited up for our late arrival and from day 1 we had a fantastic stay. Patojo is the #1 dive master on the island in my book and worked patiently with us as we dived in Hol Chan marine reserve. My second time diving the sea was... More

I stayed at the Tides back in May. When we decided to take two weeks vacation over Christmas in Belize we never considered another place, we knew we wanted to stay here. We spent the entire two weeks here and enjoyed it thoroughly. The location of this great family owned place is wonderful - it is north of town and... More

I stayed at the Tides for two months while I was student teaching in San Pedro. The entire family and staff was very welcoming and made us feel right at home during our stay. The location is terrific. It is just a short walk to the downtown area or over the Boca Del Rio bridge. There are lots of small... More

Be really careful with diving base and hotel in San Pedro on Belize. The name of the hotel is Tides Beach resort. The owners are Sabrina and her husband Patojo. Firstly everything seems okey. Sabrina is a very nice person and Patojo a helpfull diving guide. I will tell you what went wrong. The problems starts from the first day... More

We loved The Tides. It's on a great location, not too close to downtown San Pedro, but close enough to walk on the beach to all the restaurants and bars. The staff is great and always in for a chat, even the cat and dog. And don't forget Patojo's scuba center: great diving with Alex and Patojo who know the... More

We stayed at The Tides from Oct 3rd – 12th, we were part of a group of 8. The resort delivered exactly what was expected. Our rooms were clean and served their purpose, we don’t spend very much time in the room, we had “The Blue Hole” room, top floor last room to the North. I read the 3 reports... More

Length of stay - Oct 3 - 12, 2013. There were 8 in our group (6 divers/2 non-divers). The Tides is a very nice family place to stay. Rooms where clean, fresh paint, and overall nice décor. Each room has satellite TV and a small refrigerator. AC worked well. WiFi worked very well. Pool was very nice as is the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Tides. The room was clean and the only time we really spent there was to sleep at the end of the night. A/C didn't work very well in our room but again we didn't spend much time for it to really bother us. Pool looked clean and saw a few people swimming but we... More

This was my fist time visiting Belize and Ambergris Caye. I went to help a friend celebrate his 50th birthday and had the best time!. Elmer "Patojo" Paz was very friendly and helpful with doing only my 12th dive! After our check out dive he sat down with all of us and explained how to manage my buoyancy better! Got... More

The Tides Beach Resort is unlike most resorts in San Pedro and Ambergris Caye for two reasons: 1) The cost per night is much less than most resorts. Instead of $200+ USD per night, this is closer to $80 USD after taxes. 2) The resort is run by a local family, not expatriates or foreign investors. We enjoyed our stay... More
