We stayed in the Beach House and it was our home away from home, more luxurious than ever anticipated in a third world country. This is our second visit but this time we brought the family. My wife and I had rejuvenating escape from the pressures of the modern world as we stepped back to the relaxed pace of Belizean life. Joyce and Frank were extremely knowledgeable, active and gracious. With mountain water piped in there was never a problem with the drinking water. The courtyard and the little nature path behind the Beach House was a nice added touch. The well maintained pool and beach with the palapas were great. As dog lovers, we enjoyed Tiff, the prized miniature Bichon with all her character. Josephine (the cook and maid) went to required classes in Belize and is certified in Belize for food handling and room care and did a fabulous job. We encouraged her to create a Belizean Cookbook as her recipes were time consuming and original. We appreciate the beds being a little high off the ground (like they do in the Bahamas) as it gave us room for all our dive gear and empty luggage without having to trip over it. The cute hand crafted stools for anyone who needed an extra boost to get in bed were thoughtful be we didn’t need them. There was even a safe in the room! Virgilio, the fix it all man, was at a moments notice, always willing to help with the kayaks, fishing or whatever needed attention.The value for the money for what this place offer is excellent as Joyce and Frank’s prices are incredibility reasonable compared other hotels in the same area. And Joyce and Frank’s offer much more extras. (our favorites were the free kayaks, wifi, bikes and pier; Frank even let me use his fishing pole and my wife loved the fresh flowers everyday) From the beach house living room you can see the dining area, pool and ocean are is just a hop, skip and a jump away while the beach house offers added privacy and gave us a exclusive little world of our own. We can’t wait to return next year!
