2023 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
At Victoria House Resort & Spa, the order of the day is quite simply relaxation… Located on Ambergris Caye, the largest of the many offshore Belizean Islands, Victoria House is just 2 miles south of picturesque San Pedro Town. The resort offers a taste of barefoot elegance that keeps guests coming back for more. With just 42 guest rooms ranging in style from thatch roof casitas to beachfront villas with private pools, rooms and suites the only challenge is making the choice of where to hang your swimsuit at night. The Palmilla Restaurant and Admiral Nelsons Bar are renowned for fine food and drink complimented by extraordinary, personalized service. Attention to detail by staff and management alike has garnered accolades from international media and awards from prestigious organizations such as Conde Nast Traveler, Conde Nast Johansens, etc. Even more telling is the number of guests who chose to make Victoria House their destination of choice, year after year.

We stayed 3 nights at Victoria House & Spa and it was a mixed experience. On the positive side the resort is beautiful and the staff is super friendly. On the negative side the room was below average - an upscale version of a motel. The hotel should describe more accurately its rooms to manage properly expectations.

My first visit to the Victoria House with my family was one of the most memorable vacations. When we arrived we were graciously greeted by the staff with the most delicious ginger/lime juice. We all enjoyed the accommodations. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The meals were delicious. We had lobsters that we caught and brought back to the restaurant and they prepared the lobsters for our dinner. The lobster was fabulous! I look forward to visiting again.

Spent five great nights at Victoria House in one of the beautiful palmetto "rooms." If you are looking for some luxury while staying in San Pedro, this is your place. Nice quiet location, yet a short taxi/cart ride to downtown. Restaurant is great- loved the breakfasts and the opportunity to try something different each day and love them all. The spa was fantastic, staff were great, the grounds were always well kept. And as a bonus we went snorkeling in the shallow waters off the dock. Seems to be for couples- we didn't see any children there at all- no complaints! Would not hesitate to recommend this place to others.

Another superb visit to Victoria House. This was our seventh year vacationing with them, and one of the best yet. The property is as beautiful and well maintained as ever. The excursions available rival those in any destination. As is our habit, we contacted Luis Vasquez ahead of our visit, for help booking our desired excursions and dinners. He is an excellent contact, and can finalize your itinerary prior to your arrival. We have never had an issue arise with regard to any of the plans he made for us. The staff at the resort is still its strong point. Duane, Lisa, Caroline, Terri Jane and Antonio took care of our every need at (and between) meals. The housekeeping staff was efficient and unobtrusive. In addition to dining at the resort, we enjoyed El Fogon, Caliente and Elvi's Kitchen. For snorkeling/diving excursions, I can't recommend the Bradley brothers enough. We have gone with them a number of times over the years, with guests of varying swimming/snorkeling and diving abilities. Rene' and Jacinto are experts at guiding experts and novices alike. They are able to gauge the exact amount of assistance needed to make everyone comfortable enough to enjoy the wonders under the sea. They are extremely knowledgeable and ecologically sensitive, and are happy to communicate that knowledge and and care for the environment to each of their clients. They are simply the best. THE BEST! We also spent a day aboard the catamaran Felicity with Captain Horace and his able mate, Jahmar. They are congenial hosts and run a great trip. We went to Lamanai for probably the fifth time and enjoyed the trip that our guide Colin provided. He is supremely knowledgeable and a great communicator. We learn something new, or see something new each time we go. We can't wait to return to Victoria House to see old friends and experience the wonders that are available again.

The location was wonderful - right on the beach with a dock. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We went on a fishing expedition, and the kitchen staff was able to turn our fresh catch of the day, into delicious meals. It was an amazing experience! The grounds are very well maintained, comfortable, and beautiful. We plan to come again.

From the minute we arrived and were greeted with lovely refreshing drinks to our private dinner on the beach. Our experience was fabulous. Service, Food, Ambience and Beautiful Surroundings were Above Average. The property is maintained with perfection and the team there treats each customer like family. It likes going home to visit friends!

I can't say enough good things about the Victoria House Resort and Spa. The house we rented was amazing. The beds and pillows were top notch. The kitchen was fully stocked and the porch and views were outstanding. The staff were so well trained, we lacked for nothing. Their attention to detail was impeccable. So many of the staff were so helpful but we have to highly recommend Gini. He was the BEST. Can't wait to come back.

Arriving late, our flight having been delayed, we received a warm welcome, a refreshing line and ginger drink, ushered to our delightful casita and then to dinner at the terrace restaurant. Exceptional service there and indeed everywhere. On the following evening we are at the bar and had lunch there. A lovely, relaxed ambience. The grounds are stunning - beautifully maintained; immaculate. One of the best hotels we’ve stayed in. Ever.

We went here to celebrate my 60th birthday🎈 last week ! it was the perfect spot because it was small, quaint and peaceful…the staff here is phenomenal ! They greet you as you walk by daily .Amy the bartender was so friendly. Made our drinks each day and night. We even gifted her an extra bottle of wine we couldn’t take home. Tony was our server on my birthday and brought a birthday dessert and sang to me. The front desk staff was so efficient- made several dinner reservations for us before we arrived. Highly recommend Purple Pelican ! Luis at the dive shop also was great. We went on a sunset sail, fishing trip and snorkeling trip. We had VH cook our fish and it was delicious! I’ve recommended VH to many friends. Not one complaint at all. Housekeeping (Jenny)does come 2x a day and we asked her to come @lunch instead of 9 AM. Mitch was great too. Picked us up at airport and recommended some lunch places. Great ceviche at VH. I miss this place already. It was warming up when we left. We had a nice breeze the first few days. We stayed in a 3BR casita! Thanks VH. Hope to come back one day!
