Reef Village has undergone some extremely difficult times but Carla the new manager is doing an outstanding job getting it back to prime. A place for people to relax and recharge. We will return every year. Those who said it is a nightmare went when they were experiencing difficulties. Now our villa was a wonderful fully stocked kitchen with everything... More

This is a timeshare facility that is currently in Itigation so it is not being maintained as it should be. The pool had no water, the restaurant is closed and the sweet bartender has limited variety of supplies. The kitchens had limited dishes and silverware, but were attractive and had adequate appliances. Master bedroom was alright but second room minimal... More

Stay away from this dump. It's managed by ruthless pirates at the behest of the HOA. I rented direct from an owner. Allegedly he did not pay his electrical or water bill so without notice to me, management turned both off. Constructive eviction. There is an unnatural high rate of owners in default on their dues and utilities, resulting in... More

!!!!WARNING!!!! Reef Village, now known as Barrier Reef Resort has not refunded my security deposit. It's been 3 months since I left Belize and all they done is give me fake promises. It is always "tomorrow" and "soon". At first they blamed Belize banks, I then offered them to use any online wallet or paypal or western union, to which... More

Of course when we booked we were not informed of the pool and restaurant issues. Had my time share company call then and were giving a lot of lies, but we had already booked it. There were only 4 units rented and yet we were put on the bottom floor with no view. When we checked in I asked if... More

We booked our 2 week (April 2014) vacation at Reef Village and it's nothing like it was 3 years ago at Reef Village. When we arrived there was no pool (green water), restaurant or bar. Reason being there is no running water running up to that area. Apparently the pool has not been open for several months. When I go... More

Our trip to Belize turned out fairly well all things considered. Our "vacation" was booked through Interval International. First of all, as "timeshare people" we were pretty much stuck with whatever accommodations were available. These turned out to be a resort called "Reef Village" on an island called Ambergris Cay. Potentially an extremely nice property, but somewhat in a state... More

We booked a week at the Reef Village Resort through an Internal International exchange. We have been members for over 25 years and exchanged at least annually. This resort was the first time that I made a formal complaint to Interval International. The manager, David, is as helpful as he can be, considering what his has to work with. First,... More
