We stayed during Thanksgiving weekend. The resort is warm and inviting. The room (Toucan Room) was large and very comfortable. There is free wi-fi and the TV has all U.S. stations. The broadcast stations were from New York City. The restaurant is excellent but be sure to tell the waiter if you want your food spicy or not. The free continental breakfast is ample but you can order off the menu as well. The hotel staff is excellent. When we came back from an excursion, the staff greeted us at the dock. You fly into Belize City. Then you take a puddle jumper, Tropic Air to San Pedro. The resort staff pick you up in a taxi which takes you to the dock at Fido's restaurant. The boat takes you to the resort. The water is beautiful and warm. You can take the scheduled boat to San Pedro for free, or take the water taxi which the staff will call and have them pick you up at the Portofino dock. You can snorkel or arrange to go to the rain forest to the Mayan temple or zip line. This is a great place for families and couples.
