I'm a little late with my review for Crystal Paradise Resort, but am delighted to send it along. My wife and I were guests there at the end of February 2013, and I have been on the road ever since. I am a professional Bird Photographer and was more than pleased with our surroundings, accommodations, bird encounters, and especially with our guides. I appreciate their courtesies, their knowledge, and their ability to "put me on the birds" I was seeking.
As some others have said, this is not a "Luxury" Resort, and I doubt anyone at Crystal Paradise would take exception to that. I found their rates and pricing very competative, and their willingness to change the schedule around, or add in an alternative activity was most welcomed. They do serve local foods and cuisine, and I personally enjoyed it more than this fussy eater ever expected. I have stayed at other locations in Belize, and know what I expect in terms of service and appropriate amenities. I fully intend to return to Crystal Paradise again next year.
My hat is off to the entire Tut family. Thanks again for a most enjoyable time. See you again!
