I vacationed at Sapphire Beach in March. We rented two gorgeously decorated beachfront units and had the time of our lives. The beachfront was beautiful and maintained to perfection. We have been to Belize before and were disappointed at the scarcity of beach space. Well, Sapphire Beach provided plenty of white sand and water for our family to enjoy! Loved... More

Not only was I already outraged by how poor of a place the Sapphire truly is, but now I am even more so. I wrote a beautiful 1400 character review warning all of my fellow travelers to stay away from this place, but it appears someone didn't appreciate the honesty. It had 3 helpful reviews as well, so believe it... More

My wife and I just got back from Sapphire Beach. I am already missing the sapphire crew and happy hour at the Tiki Bar! Thanks you guys for a really great time.

My husband and I visited Sapphire two weeks ago (mid February) and it was the most wonderful time! This is by far the most tranquil and peaceful resort we've ever been to. It's not a party spot by any means, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, then I would highly recommend staying here. We really enjoyed unplugging... More

This place is a joke. We booked here based on the reviews (these can't be real) and the bargain it appeared to be. First, there is nothing here except the "resort" - hope you plan on doing a lot of nothing. Yes, they carry your luggage to the room and give you a drink upon arrival and the overpriced food...

The rooms and the staff were excellent.- very accommodating. The restaurant has excellent food. Never had someone waiting for us at the dock with drinks when we arrived. This place was better than anything we could've gotten in San Pedro.

We have stayed at several other properties in San Pedro but what a jewel we discovered at Sapphire Beach! Starting with the attentive, friendly staff that met us at the dock-we did not lift a finger to get our luggage to our room- and we enjoyed the delicious welcome refreshment brought out to us. The facilities were A+--clean, comfortable and... More

We stayed here recently - January 10th - January 17th, 2015.

My family stayed at the Sapphire Beach Resort over the Christmas to New Years holiday 2014/2015. The staff was excellent, although terribly overworked and understaffed. They worked very hard, but due to lack of modern technology and poor management, they were fighting a losing battle. The hotel description was not exactly accurate. The room safe was unusable because they couldn't... More
