Mayan Princess Hotel is located on the finest beach in San Pedro, Belize - as a result all rooms afford panoramic ocean views from their very own private balcony. No other hotel on Ambergris Caye offers quite the same atmosphere or friendly service. Rooms are furnished with a wide range of practical amenities, and all include a well equipped kitchenette. We offer many complimentary hotel services as well, including free airport pick up, complimentary WiFi, and a private dock use for all guests. We are also less than 100ft away from both of Ambergris Caye's water taxi services. We take pride in the value that we offer to guests, and in addition to great rates, all children under 12 stay for free. Numerous activities and tours such as scuba diving, snorkeling, cultural and jungle tours can also be arranged through Mayan Princess Hotel. Our staff are here to help make your Belize vacation as relaxing (or as exciting) as you desire. If diving is part of your vacation plans, we are conveniently located steps away from Amigos Del Mar dive center, located on the Dock right across from the Hotel. Enjoy the best of both worlds - stay with Mayan Princess Hotel, dive with Amigos Del Mar! The many dive sites dotted around Ambergris Caye are renowned for offering some of the best diving in the Caribbean. The incredible Blue Hole is also a popular option with our diving guests. The nearby Belize Barrier Reef harbors over 500 species of exotic fish and a whole host of other marine wildlife, including some of the world's most impressive corals. We look forward to welcoming you to Mayan Princess Hotel and Ambergris Caye!

It was a very spacious and clean room, very helpful and responsive staff, close to all the restaurants, right on the beach, beautiful view, hammock on our balcony and the list goes on! Staff also gave great restaurant choices and they gave us a discount on our excursions because we stayed 3 days with them. They provided us with daily beach towels, we had a full kitchen, microwave and fridge. We were also close to the grocery stores and the ferry terminal. I walked on the beach every morning and it was wonderful and very safe. The water was very clear and we actually saw fish and a sting ray while sitting on the pier! I really enjoyed my stay at Mayan Princess.

We decided to split our trip and stayed at two different hotels on Amergris Caye. Mayan Princess was the first. I can't say enough great things about the staff. Starting from before our stay, they were so unbelievably patient and helpful, answering all emails in detail. When we arrived, they made countless phone calls on our behalf helping us book our excursions. Any question or request, they were super helpful with a smile on their face. They were so well-trained, that one desk clerk passed along information to the next one so that they could both work to help us. They were just so pleasant, even greeting us by name every time when came and went. The hotel really appreciates and values its guests. The rooms were swell too. It was practically like a suite, it was so spacious. Every room faces the water and the hammock on the balcony is nice. I know someone complained about the location prior. The hotel is right in the middle of San Pedro. It is great for excursions and being centrally located for restaurants. There really is only one great beach on the island and no hotels in San Pedro itself have a great beach. You have to go far north to get a more secluded hotel beach. That is not really what San Pedro is about.

The Mayan Princess is my go-to hotel for several reasons: convenient location, friendly staff, and every room faces the Caribbean Sea. When you stay here you are in the heart of central San Pedro and many things are within a short walking distance: dive shops, restaurants, bars, even night clubs if that’s your thing. Security is visible 24 hrs a day so you always feel safe. Front desk staff is quick to respond to emails and they remembered my name every time I passed through the lobby. There is no pool or bar but this hotel couldn’t be more charming, with its small size and friendly staff always there to help you with whatever you need. Having a fridge, small stove and microwave was great so I didn’t have to eat out for every meal and stretch my dollars a little further. Highly recommend an upper floor as the ocean view is beautiful from higher up, and request a hammock for your balcony! Can’t wait to return!

The staff was amazing and helpful. San Pedro is not a good beach swimming town. Lots of docks and bulwarks in immediate area of hotel limiting water access. Plus, with all the docks there was constant diesel and exhaust fumes preventing us from using the balcony as intended. Great location for bars and restaurants and diving trips.

In the center of the San Pedro downtown area. The safe was great and the rooms were clean. Securely on staff at night made it feel very safe. Plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. I didn't like the fact that the doors open out for safety reasons as a solo traveler. And a pool area would have been nice.

Thanks for taking the time to review Mayan Princess. We're not sure exactly what you mean by doors that open out, but we're sorry that you felt unsafe as a result. We can assure you, San Pedro is a very safe location in general. Unfortunately, our hotel does not have a pool, but we are certainly not a 'resort' and do not advertise that we have a pool, so you would have been aware of that prior to coming down. What we lack in a poll though, we certainly make up for with a central location right on the main beach, walking distance to everything in San Pedro and a guest-favorite feature: hammocks on the balcony overlooking the turquoise blue sea. We hope you enjoy your future travels!
