“Great vacation in Belize”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

The hotel was very comfortable, Staff was all very accommodating and the food at the restaurant was delicious. The setting is beautiful and very convenient. We were able to walk from the airport and yet were never bothered by the sound of planes.

The dive shop was excellent with an amazing staff. Not only did we have fun but we also always felt safe.

Room Tip: 2nd floor with ocean view are excellent

The hotel was directly across from our airport which made our arrival very easy (we basically carried our stuff across the street), but it made me nervous that the air traffic would be an issue. It turned out to be a complete non issue!! You couldn't hear the planes at all since the flights wrap up at a reasonable time and they are small enough that they are hardly noticable. The room was fairly large even though a pair of diver occupyied the space with all of our gear we had room to spare. The only quirks about the place was the extremely low water pressure in the shower (the rinse area near the pool had more pressure) and the odd policies about their beach towels remotes and safe deposit keys (basically don't show up without one of these in hand at checkout or else they'll charge you)
The food at the onsite restaraunt was good but step into any one fo the many small family run restaraunts in the area and you'll be amazed at the quality of really cheap and very good eats that are in the area (shelly's was a group favorite) there are many other places to try and sample in just a few block radius of the hotel.
The owner and the staff at the onsite dive shop "Hugh Parkeys" was awesome. what a great supportive bunch of guys. We traveled as a fairly large group from a New York dive shop and these guys worked with us throughout our entire time we were there on vacation.

Room Tip: The rooms on the lower level outside of the pool area were good at any time. I don't have any co...

My husband and I were here during the low season and enjoyed the peace and quiet that this hotel offered. Our room was very spacious and clean. I had a difficult time keeping the temperature so I was comfortable, but that is just a personal problem. :) The staff were all very nice and the on-site restaurant was delicious. We also utilized the on-site dive shop and had a wonderful experience with them. The hotel is just (literally) a few steps away from the airport and a short five minute walk from the water taxi terminal. Everything was very clean quiet. This hotel is just far enough away from the busy area of San Pedro to be quiet and comfortable, but is close enough to get home safely if you may have had too much fun drinking.

Room Tip: We booked a partial ocean view and garden view room. I would not recommend booking an partial ocean...

Dear Tracy,
Thanks for posting a review for us. We appreciate your comments. Being caressed by coco palms is great but these have grown and indeed blocks the partial view of our beautiful Caribbean Sea. Staying with us truly does offer the best of both worlds easy access to the town yet; out of the hustle and bustle. We look forward to the opportnity of having you back with us in the future.
Sincerely,
Julia Edwards

I wasn't too impressed when I saw the frontage from the road but step into the lobby and then into their courtyard and it's another world. Very impressive!

We enjoyed great accomodations, the hotel grounds, location, restuarant and of course the bar...we loved it all!!

Service was always prompt and with a smile, no matter what time of day.

Highly recommended!

A friend and I stayed at the SunBreeze Hotel in June and we loved it! The staff was great. The pool and bar and bar area was nice. And the restuarant was a good go-to when we wanted something close by. The location is excellent. There were many restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. We felt safe walking around the beach and the city. The hotel is right by the airport but you don't even realize it once you are in the hotel because it is very quiet. The dive shop was top notch as well! Israel and Kirk made our experience wonderful! My friend got certified while we were there and had a great experience. We would definitely recommend both the hotel and dive shop!

I recently stayed at this hotel with a large group of people. There was a strong mildew smell in some of the rooms on the ground floor. Luckily the manager was very nice about letting us change our room to the second floor without any problems. Other parts of my stay weren't so positive.

1) The rooms are incredibly outdated.

2) The staff is very concerned about theft. They conduct an inventory each time they clean the rooms. At check out they accused another person in our group of stealing the washcloths in her room and were trying to charge her $5 US for each one. They are also very protective over the tv remotes. You have to return them at check out.

3) The safe they provide is just a small cloth bag. I couldn't fit much in it and was told to leave items like my laptop and phone in the room but to keep my cash and passport in the "safe". I'm not sure how they work out the logic on that one. Luckily I didn't have any theft problem but if traveling with a lot of valuable items, this would have been a bigger concern.

4) The customer service is not to par. Mid shower the water just turned off. No warning or notice given. When I called the receptionist she said the water would be back on in 10 minutes. I told her I was covered in soap and shampoo and she actually laughed which I thought was rude.

Overall, the location of the resort and the basic amenities made this a Liveable stay. But I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a luxurious and comfortable stay.

We recently spent a week at the SunBreeze hotel and had a great time. It's in a great location, but most importantly, it's affordable. The service was impeccable from the very beginning. The hotel is right next to the airport so as soon as we arrived someone was there to take our bags (don't worry, I didn't even notice the sound of the planes for the remainder of the trip). The room was very comfortable and always clean. We had three people in one room so they had placed an extra bed in the corner, but it looked like it had always been there. Laundry was returned by the end of the day and it was affordable. The pool was really nice and was perfect for sunbathing. It also was right next to the bar, so you can start a tab and carry your drink over to the pool with you. The midday bartender was great, he even brought us our drinks a couple of times. The food in the restaurant was great, although dinner was a bit pricey. We ate breakfast there almost every day. The SunBreeze also has an amazing dive center on the property that will not only take you on amazing diving or snorkeling trips, but can also arrange inland excursions for you. The hotel is a very short stroll down the beach from tons of restaurants and shops, not to mention the front of the hotel opens to the airport and the middle of San Pedro town. It's got everything you need all in one place!
