Though this vacation was taken in 2008 I have to review it. This was one of the most secluded places I have stayed with my family. It is on the Ambergris Caye peninsula about a 30 minute water taxi ride from San Pedro which is a 20 minute flight from the mainland. The master bedroom had a large bed room... More

We were originally scheduled to go to the Blue Reef in January 2013 but it was closed for renovation until around June and our trip was rescheduled for late July. I also believe there was a change in the management company in 2013....this all led to a very unenjoyable stay. First, the management company did not let us know that... More

Blue Reef is a wonderful place to stay that is secluded but also has all the amenities of a 5 star resort! Far away but still luxurious! It's quiet and peaceful. It's not too big of a resort so you don't feel like you're one of 500 people staying there. It's easy to know the staff by name and they... More

We stayed here in May for a little simple getaway and it was such a relaxing time! You are actually kind of forced to let go and relax at Blue Reef because it is sort of off to its own. This is a good thing if you that is what you are looking for. We loved being away from the... More

We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas 2006-07.NOT in Dec 2011, the time selection would not go back to 06/07. OK, this was a while ago. BUT, my previous review seems to be missing? We had a great time! The resort is very top end, for accomodations.Bugs were not an issue, however, they spray everyday. Great looking units, amazing comfy... More

The resort itself was very nice. The condo we rented was 2 bed/2 bath, nice kitchen, laundry just outside. Pool was nice, no problems with mosquitoes but it was really windy, satellite TV from US and Canada. Internet in the office was slow, it was better to use the WiFi, but you have to be close to the office. We... More

This place is so beautiful. It's far enough from downtown to feel like your own your own private island (except living with all the luxuries and amenities you could ever want). The staff is so friendly, helpful and absolutely lovely. You feel like they're a part of your family. Albie (the bartender) and Miriam (the office manager) have now become... More

We started our time in Belize with a few days in the jungle. Very active & busy. Then we (me, husband and 2 teenagers) flew into San Pedro to start our relaxation at Blue Reef. Albie met us at the airport and had a taxi all ready for us. We caught a boat and headed up to the resort where... More

One of the few places my wife and I would go back to. Not for everyone. Large families or groups with small kids looking for constant entertainment and shopping.....not the place. Small, intimate, secluded, quiet. No big pool with loud music & afternoon boat drink parties. No lots of people. Staff was there to meet our every need. Amazing snorkeling... More

This is a fantastic resort! We wanted a beautiful, quiet and relaxing resort and this was a perfect. It started with Kristy who helped us book our reservation--she was so kind, helpful and accommodating. Wonderful to work with. Our daughter has life threatening food allergies and they were able to accommodate them. Kristy chose a unit for us--walk out to... More
