“Best hotel on the island and best restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Best hotel on the island hands down. Pictures don't do it justice. It's THE hotel to be if you go to San Pedro. Gorgeous rooms, amazing pools, excellent service and the food is the best on the island. Stayed there for 6 nights and ended up going to dinner there 4 of the nights, yes the crusted fish is all its cracked up to be, so is the ceviche and the kale salad.

I cant say enough about the service. We left our sunglasses at the hotel on accident, realized it in the taxi on the way to the water taxi. Called hotel and not only did they find it, they personally delivered the sunglasses to the water taxi in 10min.

ONLY donwside is the WiFi, doesnt work most of the time.

Room Tip: some rooms don't have TVs so if you have to have one, make sure to book one.

Dear Luba R,

We’re very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you opted to stay and dine with us most evenings, given the many choices available in San Pedro.

Also happy that we were able to get your sunglasses to you before the boat cast off!

I appreciate your patience with the Wifi service problems during your stay.

Our local ISP, BTL, has been working diligently (with much encouragement from us) to resolve the problems they’ve been experiencing with our dedicated guest Wifi DSL line. While it will be some time before our speed is on par with services available elsewhere, we understand the importance of a reliable connection and our aim is to ensure that this complimentary amenity is both dependable and available at all times.

We hope to see you again in the near future.

Best Regards,

Brent

Always wonderful to stay at VH. Lewis in the activity hut on the pier is great at setting up your dives and equipment. My niece did the zip line and cave tubing this time and said it was great - tubing was what she enjoyed and the zip line was a bit lame. Sorry to hear Oscar has retired - best of luck to him. The staff at VH are amazing!!

Kids - not trying to be a grinch but whats up with a pool full of kids at VH? Looked to see if there is a kid policy and can't find one. Maybe the price and positioning of the resort has kept them away in the past. Be ready for a wedding every couple of days - those can be entertaining to watch from your balcony. Hey, just don't close the pool early.

This was our first visit to San Pedro, Belize and we were very glad that we picked the Victoria House. All of the staff is top notch. Great people with great service. We visited for 10 days booked fishing and snorkeling trips. We had a blast. I highly recommend the Victoria House, we checked out other hotels in San Pedro and they are by far the best. Professional staff, great food, clean rooms, easy booking options for activities and a spacious property. It was nice and quite and off the beaten path which we love. They are in a great location, you can take advantage of the free bikes, gold cart rental, taxi or walk the beach to town. We are definitely keeping this on our list and can't wait to go back! Loved this place!!

Room Tip: If you need to have access to WiFi request a room closer to the bar. Top Levels room provide for mor...

We stayed at Victoria House for a week in a plantation room and our experience was everything we wanted it to be! The staff were attentive, the grounds immaculate, the beach perfectly clean and the food excellent. We made use of the free bikes a couple of times to go into town which was fun. We booked a days fishing, a day at Lumanai Mayan ruins and a half day snorkelling which were all great fun and well organised. Having looked at a number of hotels whilst there, Victoria House is far and away the best. The restaurant is also one of the best on the island. We can't wait to return!

This was our second time at Victoria house and again we are in love. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is attentive and professional. We again dove with the Bradley Brothers, Rene and Jacinto who we adore. They are 2 of the most patient and safe dive masters. We saw amazing wildlife on all of our dives with them. We definitely recommend VH

My husband and I are at Victoria House on our honeymoon right now and it has been amazing. We are leaving tomorrow and we are very sad to have to leave our paradise. This is a gym in a great city. The resort is beautiful and service and food are excellent. The casitas are very romantic. Pool is great and beach is very relaxing. The dive shop is very helpful for booking excursions. We visited several other spots while here and are confident we picked the best resort. We can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Casitas for couples are great but small. Casita 10 is closest to the beach

Staff at this hotel is what makes it the best of the best, service is excellent, restaurant and bar are also of high quality, on the pier they have a dive shop to set up all your tours you might want to take, again the best of the best. The operator of the boats we were set up with were also of first class caliber. The suite we had was awesome, turn down service nightly, room serviced daily, the outdoor shower was the best, I never did take a shower inside and we were there five days. The two pools are in perfect condition and well maintained, as is the beach area, if someone ever found something wrong with this place, then I would say there is something wrong with them. I have traveled alot and this is one of the best of the best.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect
