My wife and I spent a week at the Nautical Inn and it was fantastic. The owners, Roger and Gail, were delightful hosts. Roger is hilarious and Gail is a mom to every guest. The maintenance man, Cyril, was friendly and a lot of fun and his "Pizza ala Cyril" on Thursday nights (I'm missing it tonight!) was quite a... More

Stayed here with the family for 8 days. It wasn't perfect, and there were some issues that the owners were working hard to address, but overall it was a fantastic adventure that everyone in the family loved. We all felt more like we were staying with very accommodating family members than at a hotel. I would suggest for anyone looking... More

The worse place I have ever stayed, dirty, towels were hard and dis colored from not being dried. Had to ask constantly for clean towels. Beach in front of hotel was filled with trash! No toilet paper had to go buy some just to have toilet paper in the room. Food was awful!! Have been sick since I got home... More

It is absolutely amazing what a difference the wrong manager can make. Jason, the American manager for this group was immediately let go and there is no justification for this poor guest's experience. My wife Gail and I are now back down at the resort and please see what more recent guests are saying. This comment is not typical and... More

We were greeted at Nautical Inn with the most kind and generous guest manager, David. He did everything and more to accommodate our needs. Soon after, we were introduced to the new owners Jason and Heather along with their two children. The previous owners were on the property as well; everyone was truly engaged in our opinions about our stay.... More

My wife and kids had a great time playing at the pool and on the beach with the other families. Villa was nice and Caribbean like. It was good for a change to stay in a natural Belize environment. The pool is right on the beach. The kids had fun fishing on the pier too. Overall a relaxing 4day Vaca.

This establishment is in need of a total overhaul. When we arrived, I wasn't even sure if they were open. When the receptionist did appear, he was very nice and accommodating, no problem there. We went in and filled out the check in documents and headed off to see the villa we had rented. The reception area was all shut... More

As many know May and the summer is the slow season in Belize and we are sorry for this person's experience and opinion. The local management is responsible for the guest's service and although there is a comment that he was nice, obviously he had not maintained the place to this guest's expectations. The comment referring to the March review... More

It's my fourth year staying at the Nautical and as always, it was fantastic. The area was well kept. The food was great and they always made you feel at home. Even with the amount of people we had, the service never seemed to slow down. I honestly didn't want to leave!

This is the wife of our previous negative review person from March 17th. We are very sorry they had such a poor trip and have repeatedly communicated with them about their experience. Where improvements and changes were possible, correction has been made. However, this is a very rare and isolated opinion, as you can readily see from other guests, many... More

Spent the week with 43 others in the Nautical inn. David was great very accommodating. I had special dietary needs and David made sure I was ok for every meal without me even asking him. My room was literally 30-40 feet from the water. Views were amazing. Enjoyed hanging out with friends on the beach, dock, pool, and playing sand... More
