“LAST time I ever stay in this place!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014

Hard to say why ownership doesn't keep the same team on board.

Stopped by recently and the place looked filthy.

All the help had turned over and services were greatly reduced.

Feel bad that I recommended this place to friends and colleagues. Had no idea there would be such a drastic change in the resort.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2014

Been several years but when we went I thought the location right on the beach was great. Had a bar near the beach where the divers met after diving. Good prices for local beer and more than 10 take out menus which worked well. Conch fritters were great. Coral necklaces sold for $40.
No need for a car really. Many rent golf carts.
Well price tank and room combo.
Not the cleanist but a good value for a dive enthusiast or someone who wants a resort certification in a week.
The reef is relatively shallow 30 feet but they have multiple places to share the reef with you. The Blue Hole dive is extra and several hours away.
Take an all day tour up the river to the Mayan ruins.

Room Tip: All faced the Ocean.

Not a fancy tourist megahotel thank God. Only has a few units so the resort can probably can accommodate nor more than 30 guests. You can develop a close relationship with the staff very quickly and they make an extraordinary effort to help you with anything. The resort is nestled in palms and is isolated from other resorts. Very private and lay-back. Well maintained beach (they rake up the dead sea grass every day!). I loved our room and the wooden deck. Had the feel of a mountain cabin...somewhat rustic and warm but with an amazing ocean view and breeze!

My son and I shared the room and dove every day with Ambergris Divers. I was amazed at how easy it was to arrange transfers to their dive center in San Pedro. Basically, I only had to tell the manager that we wanted to do the morning or afternoon dive tomorrow...and their boat picked us up the next day precisely on schedule. Very efficient. Ambergris divers was recommended to us by a dive master in Georgia. She has used them many times. Great outfit.

We rented bikes from Joe's bike shop. Yes, the resort is 4.5 miles from town but we truly enjoyed to workout. Bikes can go in places (and park in places) that golf carts can't. We carried cinch bags (back packs) and also used the large bicycle baskets for carrying groceries.
The bikes come with bike locks FYI.

We selected a 7 night, 5 2-tank dive package. Great deal! We will come back again and hopefully with a group.

Room Tip: Select a room on the upper level. We chose a suite mostly for the kitchenette.

Staff was great an eager to please!! Quite place and clean!! A little far from town but just a short water taxi ride away. Set up a tour of the Mayan ruins and learned to scuba dive while there. Staff were more than happy to help out or give directions to local attractions. Food at Restaurant was great and service was good but a little pricy but in line with the other resorts. Restaurants in town were pretty good too but a little cheaper. probably about the same or cheaper to eat at resort after paying water Taxi. All in all a great little resort would definitely go back again!!!!

This place is lovely but note it is 4.5 miles out of San Pedro town. There is a water taxi that you can get at scheduled times for $8us each way. There is a restaurant on site which serves great food but is pricey, at least $24us for an average evening meal (just a single meal). I booked just a room which was perfect for what I wanted, but I am aware that people who have booked packages have had a number of issues. The rooms are large and nice and bright. If you want somewhere out of the way and secluded with money to spend then you're good here. The dive company connected with them is a little sketchy about when they'll dive or not. The bar is run by Raymond who is the saviour of the place, he's amazing and will keep you entertained and in drinks! There are better places to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the beach. I was on the ground floor but only one other person there at the time...

We were a little leery after reading some of the reviews on here that were not so great but we did not have any issues with this hotel and were wondering why half the stuff that was not great was written in the first place. First off, the place is under new management by Ricardo. We were greeted even before we got off the boat. Our bags were carried into our rooms. Our rooms were clean and we were supplied with clean towels and the beds made up daily. There was no trash on the beach. The meals that we ordered were amazing and at a lesser price than the other places near by. My favorite was the spicy pineapple chicken and the coconut shrimp. The entire staff was friendly and we enjoyed our relaxing time at the beach bar the best right on the water. We also did our open water diving certification with Ambergris Divers. The instructor Argyle was the best! We feel fully confident with our equipment and now diving with sharks aren't so scary after all! Thank you for a great stay :)

Great staff. Rick the manager is awesome. This resort is located in the north side of the island. Comfortable rooms and very quiet. Look for Raymond - he is an excellent bartender.
Lucky is a good chef and a very cool guy. Make sure to take the water taxi and avoid renting a golf cart as the roads leading to the resort is in the process of being paved.

There is a grocery store right behind this resort which is fully stocked.

All the staff's are very friendly and courteous. Hope to see you soon!.
