I vacationed at Blue Marlin Lodge (BML) during May 2015, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. BML is located perfectly on the water, straddling South Water Caye, with an open view of the reef crest to the east, and the best docking facilities of the island to the west (on the lagoon). The island is only 200m wide, so BML is 'sand... More

My boyfriend and I knew we wanted to go to Belize and wanted to find accommodations that met three criteria: (1) on a beach that was somewhat secluded, (2) quiet, (3) with good snorkeling spots. After conducting several hours of research for this type of place in the southern area of Belize, we discovered a place called Blue Marlin Resort... More

Although it takes a little while to get here via boat you will not be disappointed. If you are looking to relax and get away from it all this is the place to go to. The barrier reef is a short distance away and full of beautiful corals and colorful fish. We stayed in one of the cottages so had... More

What an amazing find Blue Marlin was for us. The resort is a 30-40 minute boat ride from shore on a small tropical island located right on the reef. Water and palm trees in every direction you look. There is a constant sea breeze to keep you comfortable. The beach cabins are simple and clean and the perfect spot to... More

A beautiful location in the middle of the Caribbean. A nice welcome and seemingly friendly staff- thanks Sergio. Keep training and you can be a professional bartender/server. Comfortable beds and clean casitas however they are in need of some general maintenance (painting & operable windows).

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.

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...
