I did not like this resort. We rode our golf cart here in the evening twice, and on the second night were followed home. We were going to have our wedding here before this incident. After this we did not feel safe. I would not stay here.

Ok.....here is goes! In my honest assessment, depending on what type of traveler you are, this will either be an amazing place, or just an "okay" place. Amazing: If you are the type that wants to go somewhere and sit on the beach, relax and not have to leave the resort, this is the place for you. It's a ways... More

Captain Morgan's offers up some of the most beautiful views imaginable. Overall the experience was positive, but we did have some glitches: overflowed toilet and lackluster AC were never dealt with. Dinner our first and second nights were some of the best meals ever. Same restaurant on the 3rd night was one of the worst. Apparently they have several cooks... More

We thank you for spending time with us at Captain Morgan’s! We certainly wish you would have told us about your disappointing meal while on site as we would have been happy to have found something else suitable.

Our extended family of 8, including 3 teens, spent a week here and had a blast. Quiet, superb service, peaceful, ample lounge chairs with umbrellas, clean and well-appointed units. We rented 2 golf carts and went to town for dinner most nights (Elvis' was scrumptious and lovely, the 'yoga place' just up the road was delish but very casual)....The 1.5... More

The casino here is limited and the equipment is out dated....BUT!... we had a blast and actually walked away winning! We've never even won in Vegas. The employees were kind and helpful. We don't know anything about the resort.

Excellent staff, very helpful, attentive and all the accolades go to them. I believe the staff keeps the place in business. There were five of us experienced resort travelers and stayed for two weeks from Jul 2nd-16th. I would have to say that not one is willing to return for the following reasons: 1. Lack of resort activities that catered... More

I grew up coming here and will continue to visit as long as it is standing. I miss it and wish I could come more often. When we first started coming the hotel was much smaller than it is now. They actually filmed the first Temptation Island on the property.

You’re absolutely right! Captain Morgan’s Retreat was the home resort for the first season of Temptation Island back in 2001. Much has changed, we have made additions and improvements – but it is still the warm, romantic and magnificent resort millions of viewers drooled over during the series. Thank you for continuing to come back and we look forward to... More

Just arriving back home after spending a glorious 12 days at Captain Morgan. We stayed in one of the Casita's and it did not disappoint. Keep in mind, these are not for those looking for 5 star accommodations folks!! They are small, and rustic but it was exactly what we were looking for! What impressed me the most was the... More

Belize isn't for the tourist that needs to be catered on. Its a unique experience to see island life in central America naturally. Captain Morgan's Retreat isn't a stellar 5 star accommodation. However, it is spacious, well kept, clean and most importantly safe. Although the general island culture is laid back. Certain staff members ensured we were settled in, comfortable... More

Had a great time at Captain Morgans. Met great people from all over the world who were there to relax and have fun. The staff of Captain Morgans, from the staff at the entry desk to the guys who kept the grounds cleaned, were all very personable, friendly and helpful. Matthew, the concierge, was always there with great suggestions when... More
