I haven't written many reviews because it takes a lot to move me one way or the other. I usually think everything is "OK" or "decent." In those circumstances I don't bother to say anything. In this case however, and in most cases where something is exceptionally good, I want to share it so that others can enjoy it too.... More

The resort provides everything you need to have a tropical paradise vacation. We brought a group of SCUBA divers to the resort after reading many wonderful reviews and we weren't disappointed. The resort is situated on a remote island approximately a 40 minute boat ride from Dangriga. The resort had a representative meet our group in Belize City to coordinate... More

I stayed here a couple weeks ago for several nights in December. As a first timer to Belize and to the reef I can say that this Caye is extremely beautiful, great water and opportunities for fishing/diving etc. The caye itself is miniscule, you could walk to the other side in 20 minutes at a leisurely pace (and you should...

We have been in this hotel for 7 days. The overall experience was good and really relaxing, but the price paid (we choose the snorkeling package) is definitely too high for the place and for the services received. Let's start by describing this place, it's a small island on the reef, so for sure the position is great for snorkeling/diving.... More

A great adventure in the Carribean off of Belize. Richard and Rosella were perfect hosts. Kenny was a great guide who took us Permit fishing, Bone Fishing, Barracuda Fishing, snorkeling, Scuba Diving (with Dive Master Richard). Sophia took very good care of us, and Sergio was a Super Bartender and Waiter. Sergio's creations with fruit was wonderful. Great food and... More

The staff was gracious and friendly. Our cabana was perfect-feet away from the water,and situated to be private. It was like having our own private island! The diving was very personalized, and we saw sharks, rays,turtles and many kinds of fish. The food was wonderful. We were pampered and well cared for during our stay.

The Randevouz was very good hosted by Princess and Pursuit and the service that Blue Marlin provided was impecable and great food considering we... More

I am fairly well traveled and have stayed in hotels all over the world, but the Blue Marlin Resort is the worst I have ever had the displeasure of visiting. The location and hotel are gorgeous, don't get me wrong, but the way the hotel is managed is ridiculous and completely illegal. When we arrived by boat the first thing... More

The best part was sleeping with the windows open to the sound of the crashing ocean waves and the wind against the coconut... More
