“Good stay, but nothing to wow about.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2010

Steve and Becky's was an ok place. We mainly stayed there because it was close to the charter company we were using and had cribs available for babies. The "cute" little room were in a quiet courtyard, but the road 15 feet away was one of the busiest in town. The other side of the site was the local airport, so not the greatest for quiet getaway. The best part about the hotel was its affiliation with it's big brother hotel "Ramon's", across the street. If you stay at Steve and Becky's you have access to the beach and pool at Ramon's which is only a 50 ft walk. The beach and pool at Ramon's are probably the nicest and most maintained on the beach. The staff was great and quick. We went to ask for a refrigerator in the room and they brought us one before we could get back to the room ourselfs. Nice place, but to expensive for the experience.

My family and I were staying at "Steve and Becky's Cute Little Cottages" near Ramon's Village. In the middle of the night, an intruder entered the cottage and began searching through the room. My wife and I yelled for him to get out. Instead, he closed the door, turned on the lights and showed a kitchen knife. We gave him US$200 and he left after about ten minutes. The property owners responded by adding a dedicated, nighttime security guard and putting a deadbolt on the door, but it was impossible for us to feel safe after this incident, so we moved to a third floor condominium nearby. We reported the incident to the local police.

I lived in San Pedro before and experienced some petty crime, but never felt threatened. I write this only to inform tourists to be very careful and make sure your doors and windows are locked. A deadbolt is preferable to a locking doorknob.

After a week at Steve & Becky's, across from Ramon's Village Resort, during my daughter's wedding, I am still blown out of the water with the way every one we met (including the tourists), were one family, having real fun in a rustic but very real town. No pretentious artificial people here - starting from the Ramon's owner, who actually came to see us off at the airport, Richard (Willie Nelson look alike) to their host Ramon, to each and every staff member, who could not do enough to make everything perfect from fhe food to the Purple Parrot Bar. Steve & Becky's cottages are clean, well-serviced, with great hot water and shower pressure. Make sure to drink their feature tropical exotic beverage, The Purple Parrot, which is awesome.
Further down the beach, is the Krazy Kanucks bar, which had great live music a few days a week, great hosts, and had a great fresh lobster, ribs, and turkey drumstick barbeque by the Blue Iquana, restaurant upstairs, with again the best shrimp meal I have ever had. Again family friendliness that just pulls you back for more. (even Bo's bull mastif 'puppy' was the most laid-back dog I have seen - sorry Ryder for stepping on your tail!). There were many great restaurants, in addition to the one at Ramon's, the one that we went back to, was Waragamu, a very rustic and quaint seafood eatery downtown, but with a freshness and taste that puts Red Lobster to shame. Getting around by the preferred mode of transportation - golf cart- was not a problem - which we used to get around the island from 'top to bottom'. My son and daughter and their younger friends, who have likely already posted on Trip Advisor, had great experiences in Shark Ray Alley, The Blue Hole, the Mayan ruins, ziplining, cavetubing, etc., and are already longing to comeback. San Pedro is safe, with negligible intrusion by local artisans and others selling stuff (probably 4 or 5 during the whole week), who are very polite and do not persist when one says "no thank you". Personally, I was never sold on the typical tropical beach and bake holidays, but my daughter's choice of Ramon's Village Resort, San Pedro, Amergris Caye, Belize, has changed my mind, largely due to the authenticity of the people and the lack of crass commercialism which intrudes on one's privacy. Coming back to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada was actually more difficult than I thought - as I felt that I had left a part of my family from the people that I had met and made friends with in San Pedro.

We stayed at Steve and Becky's for our trip to Belize. Not only is it extremely clean, but it is a 2 minute walk from the center of San Pedro. You are able to use all the facilities at Ramones resort, the pool, restaurant etc. Ramones has a great beach, and the water is one of the only San Pedro locations that isn't covered in Sea Grass, so it makes for good swimming right off the dock. We paid in advance for breakfasts ($20USD/pp for a week's worth or breakfasts) which worked out well, otherwise the restaurant would have been 10-15USD/pp each meal. The restaurant isn't anything special. We only ate breakfast at the resort once we figured out there were fantastic restaurants very close by.
The room was very clean and the security of the site was excellent. We were provided with a safety box at the front desk for our valuables.
Staff is friendly, and right outside Steve and Becky's is a fruit vendor that supplied us with all our lunches.
It's true that there are no TV's in the room (but we weren't interested in watching TV on vacation), and the walls for the BR don't go to the ceiling, so if you are concerned about privacy it might be uncomfortable.
The resort did supply us with fresh bottled water in our room each day, and ice to keep our drinks cool.
The garden area is very nice, and I think that many of the rooms in Steve/ Becky's get more sun then the rooms at Ramones (it seemed that way).
Room did have AC, which was a bit loud but tolerable.
It is very close to the airport, but we were not disturbed by this at all. It is very quiet. Because it isn't in the centre of a resort and doesn't have this atmosphere, it feels much more private. I think it would work well for families.
Overall, we would stay here again.

Steve and Becky's is located across the road from Ramon's Resort. We have stayed at Ramon's in the past and enjoyed the facilities and location but we were looking for a less expensive option so we decided to try Steve and Becky's. They are very charming. Nice porch out front with two chairs. The inside was a decent size and very clean. Nicely decorated. Space for luggage. We paid an extra $5 per day for a minifridge to be put in the room. The maid service was excellent. It was a bit noisy once you were outside, but in the cottage it was fine. The location is excellent! You use all the facilities at Ramon's. Definately stay there again.

Although the staff were nice and the restaurant satisfactory, I found the accommodations horrible. The little cottage we stayed in didn't feel clean and had the feel of a 3 star motel. The cottage itself had a roof but when you enter it has no ceiling. Therefore, when someone is in the washroom, you can hear EVERYTHING (no TV's in any of their rooms). This accommodation is probably more geared towards a backpacker type of traveler who usually stays in hostels. Considering I went in a high trafic time and paid about US$350 a night, I was extremely upset and disappointed.

My husband and I stayed at Steve and Becky's Cottages in May of 2003. The cottages are grouped together behind Ramon's Village and have a central courtyard / garden area that is nicely landscaped and cute. Our cottage was one room with a queen bed and two chairs, saltillo tile floors, and a clean bathroom with a shower. There are cute porches across the front of each cottage with chairs for reading or relaxing. The rooms are painted bright, beachy colors. Steve and Becky's is located just across the road from Ramon's (the "road" is really like a wide sidewalk) and is a 2 minute stroll to the beach at Ramon's. Despite the fact that it is RIGHT by the airport, we were never disturbed by airplane noise, a fact that perplexed us for our entire stay. The pool at Ramon's was fine, a bit shady so not the best for sunbathing. We spent most of our time at the beach. A word of caution: the beaches on Ambergris Caye are not great--especially on the southern end of the island. There are very few spots where there is direct water access from the beach because there is a concrete sea wall. The beaches are very narrow. From what we saw, Ramon's and Victoria House had the best beaches. If you stay on the northern end of the island up near Mata Chica resort and Captain Morgan's there are better beaches and better water access from the sand. There is a lot of seagrass in the water just off the beaches at the resorts, so they aren't particularly welcoming for swimming. There are docks that jut out further into the water from all of the resorts so you can go swimming off the docks if you want to avoid wading and swimming in the yucky grass. Since the beaches aren't the best, we spent every other day on a day trip of some kind. The beautiful beaches are located on the deserted islands that you access during the snorkeling trips chartered from the hotels. We aren't divers, but there are plenty of other things to do. We went on a beach picnic/snorkel trip to Goff's Caye which included a stop at shark/sting ray alley. This was the best trip we did. We went inland one day and did the cave tubing expedition which was very cool, and we took another snorkeling trip for our third trip. As for food, we went to various restaurants in San Pedro for dinners. Most of the places that were recommended to us were fine. Nothing fancy. San Pedro feels like a third-world country. The buildings are all cinder block buildings in various states of disrepair. The "roads" are sand. It is not a quaint or cute town, but it is safe from our experience. Overall, Abergris Caye is not the place to go if you are looking for a luxury getaway. If you want to go and lay on a beautiful beach or hang out by a beautiful pool stay at Victoria House or Captain Morgan's. If you want less expensive accommodations, are an adventurous and energetic traveller, and like the idea of venturing out on day trips, I definitely recommend Steve and Becky's Cute Little Hotel.
