“Quiet, Close and Clean !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We were so lucky to find and pick this great please...We were there 7 days and walked or road the bikes while we were there ! No car or Golf cart ! The bikes were free to use . The kayak was free to use as well and it was a 20 min. paddle to the reef where we tied up an snorkeled each day.
Could not have found a better place!! The staff were friendly and helped in more ways then one . Stay here you will love it too.

I had a hard time deciding between three resorts, but after going to Ambergris, I am convinced I could not have made a better choice. It was far enough from town that it was quiet, but close enough that you could experience lots of different restaurants, bars, and shops. The air conditioner made the bedroom frosty-cold, everything was mahogany, there was plenty of hot water, and it was cleaner than our house by a LONG shot. Super Buy and The Bakery are really close. We watched the sun rise from our private balcony almost every morning - the exception was the morning we went to the pier next door to watch it :) We saw baby rays and bonefish in the shallows. The hot tub and pool were fantastic. PS: I accidentally marked "workout facility" and "room service" as "terrible" - there was no N/A option. They don't have these things, but you won't miss them a bit.

Room Tip: I would take a second floor room every time.

This condo was everything we needed and more. The one bedroom unit had plenty of room for my husband and me. The kitchen was a nice perk for keeping some breakfast items, drinks, and snacks on hand. It was also within walking distance to a few grocery stores and we tended to pick up items here and there as we were walking home. We also made use of the bikes available to pick up groceries and to go in to town for lunch. Ann Marie in the office arranged two tours for us; a day of snorkeling with lunch on Caye Caulker with El Gato Tours and a day of fishing, snorkeling and a beach BBQ with Severo Guerrero. Both tours were awesome and fairly priced. It was so nice to be picked up at the dock right outside! The pool area was beautiful and well maintained. The property in general was very well taken care of. The staff was great…always out and about doing their daily tasks and offering a friendly hello. The rooms were cleaned daily except for Sundays and we were able to have a load of laundry done for $5. Though I always felt safe, it was nice to know that there was a security guard there all night as was the fact that there are two lock boxes in the condo for valuables. There is A/C only in the bedroom but it wasn’t needed much in January. There was always a nice ocean breeze coming in from the open balcony doors and windows. The location seemed perfect. We had considered staying closer to town but are glad we didn’t. It was nice being in a quieter area and the 15 minute walk was worth that. Hands down, the number one reason to choose Coral Bay Villas is the view! It was great to sit on the balcony every morning and evening enjoying the view and the breeze. If you’re looking for a quiet place to stay that’s still close to town and has all the amenities of a home away from home I would highly recommend Coral Bay!

Positives:
1.Coral Bay Villas Do It! 8 or 10 units, less people to be around with a smaller complex. Kitchen to make your own meals if you wish. Went to the pier by the football field early in the morning and bought our own fresh fish to cook. We stayed in ground floor unit. Early to mid November a good time to go less people. Your a fool if you don't stay here.
2.We went to dive it was mid-November time frame.Can not remember the dive company name but it is located next to Blue Grill restaraunt on the beach. Diving awesome. Did not do Blue hole too long a boat ride and sounds like a tourist trap to us. Dives off the island are 5,10, 20 minutes out by boat. Quality of dives great. November a good time to go less people so boats not as packed.


Negatives:
1.The island power was out for 20 hours do to updating and maintenance but this was not Coral Bays fault. It affected the south island and all of the resorts. Power outages occur but we were told it is unusual for that length of time.
2. There is a drug element. Your an idiot if you do drugs so I will leave it at that.
3. SPEAKING OF THE ISLAND IN GENERAL: We found the locals the most accomodating. It was the american, canadian etc expats that I found the most irritating. My instincts are always right. The expats are sharks the locals are more tourist oriented.

Room Tip: Ground Floor is what we stayed in so walk out to pool available but upstairs units have wooden ceili...

We had a wonderful time at the Coral Bay Villas - thank you for the hospitality and excellent location. Convenient to downtown and many restaurants, CBV is the right place to stay if you want a relaxed trip to the islands. Owners like Art and Ruth will make you feel at home while enjoy your truly private beach and the pool/hot tub combo which has to be one of the best on the island. Try it, you will love it.

Coral Bay Villas was the best place for us to stay. Not so far out of town that you felt too far from everything but just right. All we had to do was hop on one of the complimentary beach cruisers and we were in San Pedro Town or hoof it for about 5 minutes!
In the daytime best way to town is walk the beach with it's wonderful breeze keeps you cool.
While walking the beach the 6 days we were there we did not see another place that we would rather be as far as location and view.
First off the view from our condo was absolutely fabulous and if there were any negative to this place, which there is not in my opinion, the view would override this.
The condo we had was comfortable and clean, not luxurious but we did not expect that, but the view was World Class! Pool 4 steps from your porch ...also did not suck! We felt like we had our own private pool.
Okay enough about the view my pics will show that but the staff was also very professional. Ann Marie was extremely helpful with booking our flight from Belize City to San Pedro and then from San Pedro to Placencia, which was the last leg of our trip.
Oscar was very nice and we felt safe as we always knew he was right outside watching over the place, not that anything was scary around there but it was nice none the less.
We were very happy with the restaurants within very short walking distance, Caroline's was one of our favorites, we ate there twice and one time got ceviche to go. The sisters that run that place are so wonderful, both beautiful people, cannot remember their names and they make the most amazing fresh watermelon juice!
Oh also eat at the Blue Iguana, just a short walk left from Coral Bay, we had dinner there one night before going fishing the next day , the food was pretty good and we inquired about getting food to go so we would have lunch for the next day, they supplied us with an awesome lunch, we did not go fishing due to weather but we ate ALL of this lunch at 7:30 am just 1/2 hour after they delivered because our trip was canceled, but our bellies were quite happy!
We try to go somewhere different every vacation but i think next time I will have to shout out loudly for Belize!

This was our 6th year at Coral Bay and it was fabulous as always! The personnel treat you like family! Just heaven! A++++++++++++++++ Thank you Janet, AnneMarie, Abraham and Oscar! So relaxing. My favorite view in the world, sitting in the Living Room just looking out the french doors to that beautiful beach! You can be as active or as lazy as you want.
