My one bed (which was very hard/firm but ok for me) seafront room was very nice and clean, and was cleaned everyday. All rooms are upstairs and are the same price, $50US. They have a/c, fans, cable TV (tho some channels may be snowy,) plastic table and chairs, wardrobe, and private hot shower. Some have one bed, some have 2... More

Comfortable, quiet, A/C plus fans, and a public second story covered porch overlooking the water made this a charming place to stay for a few nights. Tino delivered breakfasts and dinners to us by bicycle, which was very convenient - his wife cooks the meals and they are delicious - recommend the fried fish. And get a pitcher of fresh-squeezed...

We had an amazing time here in Sarteneja and Fernando's. We were the only guests in his Guesthouse and almost in town. But it was worth it. Sunsets are nice, the place is quiet and safe and the people are really, really nice. Fernando's wife even cooked for us - lobster dinner, conch dinner and breakfast. And thi for a... More

We had read only good reviews about this place but felt ripped off once the owner wanted $100 BZ Dollars plus Tax instead the $30US (=$60.00 BZ) which is published in the internet. He explained the price of $30US was a rate from 30 years back. I think he just took advantage of us arriving in the evening and looking... More

My father and I arrived in Sarteneja via the Thunderbolt just before 8 am, and found Fernando's only three blocks from the dock. Our surprisingly spacious room overlooked Front St. and the bay, had it's own tiny balcony and easy access to the large common veranda. Both the room and bathroom were updated and spotless, cleaned every morning by Fernando... More

We drove here via Orange Walk. The last hour is very potholed and slow-going whether in a saloon (as we were) or 4-wheel drive. If you're coming from Corozal, its much better to use the ferries, but avoid early am and late afternoon queues and you'll need advice as none of the roads for that route appear on any maps....

Sarteneja was one of the many surprises of our expedited trip through Belize. It's quaint and mysteriously devoid of tourists and symbols of capitalism. We only spent one day at Fernando's. My advice is to take a few days at least. The pot-hole laden drive in from the Orange Walk was a frustrating and arduous adventure. I'd recommend driving instead... More

We saw the guest house on a day trip in December out of Corozal. We stayed there for nine nights in May this year and it is an excellent value. The owners and staff are very accomodating and this is right on the water with a nice breeze most of the time. You can get anywhere on the peninsula easily... More

I got off the bus from Orange Walk in an attempt to get off the beaten track in Belize yet still be on the ocean, walked through the unspoiled village of Sarteneja and along the waterfront to book in at the first guesthouse I came to - Fernando's Seaside Guesthouse. Sure glad I did! Everybody in the Fernando family were... More

Sarteneja is a beautiful little fishing village in the northern part of Belize on the Chetumal Bay. We stayed at Fernando's Guest House and were very pleased with our experience! Fernando's is located right on the sea. We stayed there twice this past year, and truly enjoyed the family's warm welcome and heart-felt hospitality. The guesthouse is in the process... More
