“Friendly, Clean and Convenient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We loved our stay at this hotel. Dee (owner) was excellent in helping with planning details and traveling hints. Her husband Wayo was kind enough to pick us up from the airport give us a little tour around town.
Having a kitchen really is great while on vacation and it was stocked with all the necessary dishes and cooking utensils . There was a t.v. in the front room and air conditioning in the bedroom. The hotel was walking distance to everything. The owners and staff were super friendly, as are most of the locals in San Pedro. We felt safe and cozy and can't wait to go back.

I was actually the first paying customer at this beachfront paradise. I've been traveling to San Pedro for years and watched as this property was purchased as a private multi-unit residence in 2013, and transformed into the boutique beachfront beauty you see today. I've since returned for 2 additional trips, and will keep going back as long as the owners will have me.

Over the past 5 years, I've stayed at over a dozen properties on the island. Aqua Vista is by far the cleanest property with the most friendly and accommodating owners. I can't fail to mention the incredible view. The location is walking distance up the beach just north of town... not too close to be caught up in the noise and action of the crazy nightclubs, but close enough for a nice stroll home from dinner or drinks in town.

For an afternoon or evening nightcap - there's the infamous "Wayo's Beachside Beernet" next door (same owners). The bartenders are fabulous, and several of them help with the hotel as well. The bar is small and inviting - not a thumping club like you'll find in town. There is lovely local live music at the bar several nights a week, but the owners make sure the music winds down by 10pm each night.

All units are one-bedroom / one bathroom suites with a kitchenette in the living room. The refrigerator is a full sized fridge with freezer - and there is a medium sized stove in each unit. Also found are coffee makers on each kitchen counter.

Each bedroom is outfitted with a queen bed, and the living rooms have queen pull out sofas. Because this is a new property with new furnishings, the beds are still quite comfy. I'm not sure why the previous reviewer said there was no closet. Each bedroom has a good sized closet, outfitted with hangers and two shelves for folded goods. There are also two nightstands in each room for added storage. The bathrooms each have a large shower - freshly tiled - with ample towels (and if you need more, just ask). Currently the hotel does not offer shampoo and lotions, but this is in the works (as this is still a new property.)

There are 4 kayaks for use on the property (free to guests) - and if you'd like other excursions, the owners are happy to hook you up with just the right tour company to help you.

I can't say enough about the owners Wayo and Dee. They are lovely people who've built an incredible home away from home ...in Paradise.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper - choose rooms 2 (down) or 5 (up). These rooms have a different confi...

Aqua Vista Beachfront Suites was home for our second trip to Ambergris Caye. It is a recent addition to the Bocas del Rio area, a convenient location for walking to San Pedro's bars, restaurants and shops. The suites are fresh, new and small. The unit is divided into 3 rooms...living/kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom. Unpacking was not an option as there was nowhere to put anything. No luggage stand, closet, bureau, shelves or hooks. Similarly, the bathroom lacked space for toiletries and wet towels. None of the usual complimentary amenities such as soap, shampoo etc.
The owners are very nice people. They are aware of some of the deficiencies. I would call it a "work in progress."
Wayo's bar is next door....the local hangout. Noisy evenings til 11:00 pm or so. Wayo, who also owns the Hotel was very kind to drive us to restaurants and the pier for our departure. Dee, his wife, was efficient with pre-reservation questions, booking etc.

Room Tip: Great location with potential

Dee R, Owner at Aqua Vista Beachfront Suites, responded to this review, August 14, 2014
Thank you so much for this review, it made us fully aware of the lack of storage in the suites! Being still very new during your stay we were still going through some growing pains and finding out what we needed to improve all of our guests' comfort. Since your review we have put in hooks for towels in either the bedroom or bathroom, depending on layout. We also now provide hand soap for our guests, but being more of a condo rental style rather than a hotel, we do not provide shampoos, etc, especially due to allergies and skin sensitivities. Finally, having no where to store your clothing during your stay we realize is a huge inconvenience, and we sincerely apologize for that! We have since added several shelves inside the existing closets, provided additional hangers and have ensured that there is sufficient space either under the bed or on top of the closet to store your luggage during your stay. We hope these changes have helped with the previous storage issues and welcome all suggestions from out guests on how to make their stay more comfortable, like a home away from home.
