This bed and breakfast lives up to the great reviews I had read about it before going to PG. Although Rachel, the owner, was away on vacation, she left this gem in the capable hands of Estella and Estella's husband. Having driven down from Belize City, I was exhausted when I arrived. The last thing I wanted was to end up in some dump. I just wanted a little bit to eat and a quiet place to relax and go to sleep. What a delight the Blue Belize is. The nicely furnished two room flat is accessed by the large veranda that overlooks the sea. where I spent early mornings and the evenings. Breakfast consists of a large serving and excellent variety of fresh fruit and wonderful homemade fruit bread and juice. Peeps, and sometimes Nola, the two family dogs kept watch over me and the household as I slept. Peeps slept just outside my door and gave me a complete sense of security, although there was nothing either at the Blue Belize or in Punta Gorda that made me feel insecure. The bathroom is very nicely equipted, and the peppermint soap that Rachel has in the showers is heavenly. The grounds abound with beautiful trees and flowers and are well maintained. Down the unpaved road that leads to the Inn, there is a nightly gathering of drummers that add to the wonderful ambience and the crowing of roosters in the morning let you know when it is time to get up. It was three days into my stay before I saw a clock anywhere in town and I knew I was truely on vacation. Thanks, Rachel and Estella for a wonderful look as what life is like in Punta Gorda....a little piece of Heaven.
