We have been to Ambergris Caye 10 plus times and we have stayed at various hotels/condos and I had walked past the Miramar complex and knew of the location. Let me first start by saying the condo was clean and roomy. The furnishings were not good - not bad - but my guess is the owner does not want to have great stuff ruined.
We had a 2 bedrrom 2 bath with a washer and dryer. I love having the washer and dryer on vacation so we dont have to bring as many clothes and they are always clean. There was several mini stores near by that we purchased cheap laundry detergent at. Marfa helped us get a golf cart (because its too far from town to walk) and it arrived with in an hour of check in. We did experience some issues with the fridge in the unit - it made a loud noise during the night - the manager did attempt to fix the problem twice but it was unfixable. The fridge stayed cold but the noise did not go away. We were offered to move to a lower floor condo but declined. The only other issue I had was we were unable to change the temp on the AC - it was locked. When we first checked in it was set at 80 and that was way to warm. We had the manager lower the temp to 75 but I would have rather been able to adjust it myself at any time. (like up during the day and down at night) But that was just a small issue. The rental agent did help us out with these issues and so did the complex manager - but it would have been better if there was management on site at all times.
All in all the condo was good. Its in a more residential area - which means its nice and quiet, but still easy golf cart ride to town. And my husband is big into fishing - and the fishing from the dock or shore was very good. No guide needed!
My tip: There is a small road side restaurant called Robin's and he serves jerk chicken - for $3.00US you get a 1/4 chicken, rice & beans and coleslaw - YUM best lunch on the island for the best price.
Oh and the other nice thing about the area (south of Victoria House) they have private security that roams the area not just Miramar - all the condos and houses in the area. That was nice to see - not sure if it means the area is safer or not - but it looks good.
