This was the best, most refreshing & relaxing vacation ever. The staff is superb, wonderful & friendly. The island is beautiful and the food was perfection. The only bad thing was that we booked for 4 nights instead of 7. We didn't want to leave!

Just got back from 6 days at Yok Ha. Going to a new place you discover on the internet is always an uncertain feeling. We arrived with high hopes and were in no way disappointed. The staff was amazing, the location outstanding, the rooms were wonderful and the excursions were incredible. There were a couple of reviews that made us... More

We went to Yok Ha Resort in December and had a great time. We had to wait four hours to go out to the island which was a bit long. The place we waited did need work and did not have a working bathroom. However, when we mentioned we had not eaten since early morning they kindly took us to... More

My husband and I have not taken a real “vacation” for 9 years. When we started looking around we knew we wanted relaxing and we wanted snorkeling. When we found Yok Ha we knew we had found our dream island and we were right. As soon as we booked it Julie was in email contact with us for lining up... More

After spending 7 nights and 8 days at Yok Ha Resort I have nothing but amazing things to say. When I purchased the trip on Groupon, I had no idea what to expect but Julie (the resorts booking agent) was extremely helpful and was able to answer any questions that I had. When my boyfriend and I arrived in Belize... More

I didn't know what to expect, all the warnings of Belize being a 3rd world country. When we landed in Dangriga I thought, "what the hell am I doing here". I have walked out of many hotels because it was not up to my standards as far as cleanliness, or lack of hospitality, this was going to be a challenge... More

Like many of us, my time off from work is limited and so I must choose my vacation destinations carefully. We booked a Groupon trip to Yok Ha "Resort" in December 2013. It was suppose to be after the rain season but unfortunately, the official "rain season" that was to end by November was a dry season...which leant Mother Nature... More

We pride ourselves in dedicated, personal treatment of ALL our guests. I am sure that "washing" your bill as requested at checkout would have avoided all this back and forth between you and your partner Lynne. The details you present are certainly a distortion of the truth: 1. my name is not Winnifred Prescott. 2. there is no way this... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to Yok Ha last week with a Groupon deal and it was everything we could've hoped for and more. Upon arriving into Belize City airport and taking Tropic Air (12 seater) flight to Dangriga - Willfred (the resort owner) was waiting for us when we landed. He had to make a pit stop to pick... More

We bought the Groupon for our stay at Yok Ha during the middle of January. We were met at the Dangriga airport by a taxi taking us to the dock to be transported to the island by Pastor. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the head cook, Celeste and the bartender Marlin who had two welcome drinks for us. Thomas,... More

1. We do not have "specific" meal times, but rather suggested times and even if you arrive later than the recommended hour you will still be served freshly prepared food. If you want a private dinner this is done at the Cabana's veranda or by the pier. Your arrival time at the island was after 1:30 and you were still... More
