My partner and I went there with another couple. Positives: paradise settings.. beautiful beach, coconut trees and soft sand.. Easy to get around. We rented a golf cart. Recommend daily walks on the beach.. miles of beach... ahhh.. Avoid tourist traps and try local hole in the wall restaurants. Staff at resort: good folks who do their best every day. Negatives: Units are extremely dated. Poorly maintained. Excessive Hard water buildup. Bed n comforter are thin and falling apart quality.

My husband and I were enjoying our 25th anniversary during the 2020 coronavirus outbreak. We were struggling with our airline not assisting to return us to our country - Canada. Canadian Embassy was of no help either. No sooner had we confirmed a rescheduled flight with an alternative airline we were notified the Border was closing and international airport closing. Our Front Desk Rep Joel spent literally HOURS assisting our evacuation from the country. We required a combination of island air and ground transport through Mexico to Cancun. Without Joel's assistance we would still be there wondering if we would ever get to go home. We can't thank Joel enough! All of the staff were super friendly, and still smiling despite the uncertain times. Our cabana was clean and comfortable, we enjoyed our short time there and if we ever go back our first choice will be Captain Morgan's without hesitation. Extremely trustworthy, super kind, helpful. Thank you Joel and everyone at Captain Morgan's!

The hotel was built in stages, our ground floor unit was terrific but a little older, looked out over the palm lined grounds to the ocean. a couple of small issues were fixed immediately. Morning coffee on the patio feeding the Iguana, a little potato chips and Papya. The grounds are well kept and the rooms are large and pristine albeit with a little sand dragged in. Very relaxed and quiet ambiance. The staff is 5 star, friendly, helpful and really happy to see you...the best. Lots of activities can be booked through the activity center, fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, exploring etc. Food was good with ample restaurants within walking distance. One of the few places I would go back to. no disappointments.

Spent 3 days in Caye Caulker then went to San Pedro and was lucky enough to Find Captain Morgans Resort. Quiet,Peaceful &Laid back. Rented a Beachfront Oceanview Cabana.Staff is friendly and attentive to your needs.Bartenders are Great. Swim up Bar and the Grounds our beautiful. Didnt have cable for 2 days but there was a letter stating they were upgrading to a new system in all units. Sure enough we came back and the cable had been replaced in all the cabana units.I have to say with everything going on in the world not having cable for 2 days was really nice. Great Casino on property played on $20.00 for 40 min on Roulette. Free drinks while playing really only lost $5 with free beer. Secrets beach is 3.5 miles one way and san pedro 3.5 miles the other direction so centrally located. I would come back for sure.

We’re grateful you took some of your time to leave us a lovely review! We also think that Captain’s offers everything you could possibly need while on a Caribbean holiday – white-sand beach, beautiful grounds, caring staff, and even the only casino on the island! It’s lovely to hear that you’d like to come back, and we certainly hope that you will!

Nice property located on the water. Not a swimmable beach though. Had nice pools, and the pool bar was GREAT !!! Great drinks and food at the swim up bar !!! Restaurant on the premises had good breakfasts and lunches. Casino located on the property was fun ! Our room was a little small, but we had a deck out front with a view of the water, which was a definite PLUS !!! Staff was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again !!! Good proximity to San Pedro, bars and restaurants !
