What to say about the perfect vacation. The staff and people of Belize we met were simply the nicest of anywhere we've been. We place a lot of value on service and our expectations were surpassed at Hamanasi. This is also not a party hotel, most people were in bed or back in their rooms after supper.
The dive operation runs totally smoothly. They seemed to get guests at neighbouring hotels, and they cater to a variety of skill sets. My husband saw a hammerhead on his second dive! If you have the time, make sure you do the ziplining. OMG - so fun! The mayan tour takes you across Belize so you can see how pristine and untouched the country really is.
Make sure to bring plenty of sunscreen, we got slightly burnt snorkelling and kayaking. Bring bug spray as well, the resort appears to be carved into the jungle, so the no-see-ims are pretty intense.
I actually cried on the puddle jumped to Belize City airport when we left. I don't think we'll ever surpass the vacation bar set by Hamanasi and Belize.
