“Super nice for the price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

This review is based on price for performance rating scale. If we had payed twice as much, it would have been about a 4.
As others have said, the room is spacious, well laid out, clean, decorated with solid mohagany and other beautiful hardwoods. The staff is attentive, and friendly, room service good. It takes 15 to 20 seconds to walk from the Tropic Air / Maya air terminal to the front door of the Sun Breeze. Just north is a great restuarant called Wild Mangos, and most of the San Pedro shops and food is within a 5 minute walk.
There are many street vendors here, but none came on the property to try and sell their stuff.. ; walking the streets or the beach they are plentiful, but friendly.
The Tropic air flight from Belmopan to Belize city took 18 minutes, one you are seated in the plane , within 3 minutes you are taxiing down the runway, don't forget anything in the seats, 'cause that plane is going to be back in the air within 5 minutes. Exactly what happend to us, my passport was in a jacket that got left on the 4 seat plane we came on from Belize city. But an outstanding staff member from the SunBreeze that met us at the Airport, took care of getting our bags, and finding my jacket. His name is Rubio, and should be put in for promotion, as he is the most wonderful friendly helpful hotel staff member I have ever come across.

There are quite a few beach-side hotels in downtown San Pedro but none as good as Sun Breezes. Rightly deserves it's TripAdvisor rating.

It's right on the southern end of town, 100 yards from the Belize Ferry and across from the airport. Despite this is actually quiet and seems a lot more intimate that those fronting the piers. The restaurant/bar is right on the beach with exceptional food and hammocks upstairs to enjoy or crash by the nicest pool in town for a lazy afternoon after all that diving , snorkeling or fishing.

The rooms are clean and functional, great for those who are in and out of the water all day. The whole hotel is safe and if you leave something outside expect the staff to politely knock on the door or call you when you get back to say they have it in reception.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the office - it's a little quieter in the evening when people are along the...

I stayed at SunBreeze Hotel for five nights and found the staff to be so friendly and helpful. The rooms were always clean and the grounds were constantly being groomed. The rooms are spacious and well thought-out. Each room has a balcony area (on second floor) or a nice patio outside the room on first floor. A really nice place to sit and read or visit. Although they are separate from the Blue Water Grill, it is actually on the grounds of the hotel overlooking the ocean. You can't find a better restaurant on Ambergris Caye. We tried several others and they were good but we kept coming back to the Blue Water Grill because it was so exceptional. It is well deserving of the awards it has received. It would definitely come back here and recommend it to friends. I already have! Although I had a room by myself I was traveling with a group that had booked us into this hotel. So glad they did.

I have visited Belize 4-5 times before. Some was with my family, visiting all the turist sites in and around San pedro.
This time it was for business.
I visited both hotels to see which will suit my needs better. I like the one that is just accross the airstrip. It is only a couple of blocks from the main walking street of San Pedro, full with restaurants and shops.
The hotel has several rooms for families (I'll bring mine back later this year) and some great couples rooms with Jacuzzi.
The beach is nice I took a long walk every night.
Restaurant is one of the best on the island. I can only write good things about this hotel and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: For families or couples this is great!

This was a last minute reservation for one night only, on our way to Mexico. (We live in Southern Belize) It exceeded our expectations. It was clean, and safe and the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. It is located close to the airport, yet was quiet and right on the beach and close walking distance to the main part of town, restaurants and shopping. The pool was inviting, clean, and spacious, surrounded by chaises and thick white, soft sand!!! (not easy to find in Belize, I am referring to the sand) The Restaurant, Blue Water Grill, has won several rewards, and it shows. The food was amazing, yummy, fresh, presented beautifully and definitly worth a return trip.

Room Tip: We took run of the house, but were given one on the southern side with an ocean view, on the second...

Ambergris Caye has changed a bit since we were regular visitors in the mid-90s. The nice, quiet, electric golf carts have been mostly replaced by noisy gas ones plus way too may cars and trucks. Everything is more touristy but San Pedro is still a funky kind of place that's fine for relaxing and exploring the reef.

The SunBreeze is conveniently located on the shore and right across from the small air field. (Don't worry about hearing roaring jets.) We had a deluxe room short on view but with an AC that worked real well. Clean rooms and good service. The pool was fine with a bar for pina coladas right there.

Room Tip: The dive shop on site charges a bit of a premium. Better to look elsewhere perhaps before deciding.

Several members of a dive group stayed at the Sunbreeze Hotel for a week at the end of December/first of January. As many reviewers have stated, the hotel is located in a very convenient location within walking distance of everything in San Pedro. The hotel isn't fancy, but it is nice and clean with spacious rooms, the staff is wonderful (one example: I emailed the hotel to ask a question and received a very personal response in less than an hour!) , and the onsite restaurant consistently presents tasty food. Because the weather wasn't often good for utilizing the pool, on the few occasions I did use it, it was extremely clean and never crowded. The pool water was too cool for my taste, but that may have been due to several rain storms which kept filling the pool with cool, fresh water. Sunbreeze seemed better suited for adults, although there were a couple of families with children staying at the hotel. With the exception of the pool, there didn't seem to be much for children to do.

The dive shop at the hotel, Hugh Parkey's, was excellent. The managers and all the staff assessed the skill level of all the divers and planned dive sites based on the needs of the group. They all truly cared about divers having a good time--and, most importantly, about their safety. Huge numbers of dive shops are in the area, so it is imperative to choose wisely and find a shop whose staff is as conscientious as Hugh Parkey's! These folks were truly professional--and fun!

We used Mayan Air to travel from Belize City to San Pedro. The operation seemed to be disorganized, but I have nothing else to compare it to since this was my first visit to Belize. Overall though, I would research the differences between Tropic and Mayan Air before deciding on which carrier to use.

I would definitely stay at the Sunbreeze Hotel again because of its cleanliness, great location, and helpful staff.
