“Great Place in Belize!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2005

We stayed here two days -- Connie was a dream working out a few last minute kinks in our trip. Great price, great inn, great hosts!

If you're in town shopping for property around Corozal Town, or staying awhile en route farther south, you couldn't do much better than this guesthouse, Copa Banana, new in early 2004. The rates are affordable, you can cook meals in the common kitchen, complete with dishware, stove, coffee maker, microwave and fridge, and the owners even run a real estate business, Belize North Real Estate Ltd. Connie and her partner, Gregg, have done up two banana-yellow one- story, ranch-style concrete houses, with a total of five guest rooms (some with queen beds, some with two twins) across the street from their expansive home on the water. The house where my family and I stayed had three bedrooms, each with en suite bath and cable TV, plus a modern kitchen, dining area and living room, so guests have private bedrooms but share the common space. As it happened, there were no other guests when we stayed there, so in effect we had our own private house. A new apartment with a bay view is now also available for weekly or monthly rental. They also have a car or two for rent for US$70 a day. There's no pool, and you're not directly on the water, but there is a view of the bay, and the owners are bringing in sand from the bay for a beach area. Water toys such as boogie boards, rafts and inner tubes are available for guests.

Contact info: Copa Banana Guesthouse by the Bay, 409 Corozal Bay Rd., P.O. Box 226, Corozal Town, tel. 501-422-0284, fax 422-2710; e-mail relax@copabanana.bz. Rates: US$55 double/US$350 week, plus 9% tax. Visa and MC accepted.

Connie and Greg are wonderful people. We loved our stay at the Copa Banana and highly recommend it over the other places we saw in Corozal. The bikes they provided are a really good way to see the town.

Clean, spacious, quiet, laundry facilities and the hosts went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We would return.

Gregg and Connie are wonderful hosts at the Copa Banana. We enjoyed riding bicycles around Corozal and swimming in the bay. A good restaurant is located in a hotel that is right down the street from Copa Banana. It also has a good long distance phone located right in the kitchen.

It is comfortable, clean, and I can't say enough about the darling decor.

This was the second time that I stayed there. This time, I took my husband and son and they really enjoyed Copa Banana.

It was nice & clean. Owners were a bit American if you know what I mean. Bicycles were a nice touch but a tad embarrassing to ride. There isn't a beach around the bay so I salute Connie and Greg efforts to build one naturally.

We were in the bay view room which was light and airy, clean, and very comfortable. The communal areas are practical and the kitchen well equipped (we only used it for breakfast and didn't take much advantage of using it proper).

Overall staying at the Copa was nice, Connie and Greg are really friendly and helpful people.

Stayed for a week at the Copa Banana.......great guest house, spotlessly clean and excellent decor by Connie. Felt right at home and enjoyed the early evening sunsets with the continuous breezes from the ocean. Connie and Gregg made us feel very welcome and we met some interesting people!
Definitely recommend it if your staying in the Corazol area.....local market provides outstanding fruit and stuff (very cheap) so you can make your own breakfasts, etc at the Copa!
