November 2012 family vacation, first trip to Belize. Very lucky to have ended up staying at Athens Gate. The location is ideal....away from the noise and bustle of San Pedro but a quick trip in the golf cart to restaurants and grocery stores. Also being on the south part of the island, you are picked up last and dropped off first on excursions (time saver). The property itself is upscale. You will want to buy a condo here after staying. The rooms are beautiful, functional, spacious, and equipped with high end furnishings. I am going to have to get the same mattress set because they were very comfortable. The staff is outstanding. James the bartender is always handy to make a delicious pina colada or a host of other tropical drinks. He was exceptionally gracious with our 2 kids, meeting their demands for virgin pina coladas. Eliazar is unbeatable for recommending restaurants or arranging excursions. He is also just a super nice guy and fun to talk with. We will be staying here next time we head to Belize.
