Ordered a couple pizzas there the other day. Couldn’t have been less tasty. Zero flavor on one pizza, and if that was a meat lovers you couldn’t tell. The other was pretty disappointing as well. Thinking if you want to charge that much for pizza and get repeat business then you need to up your game. I may never find out if you fix the problem, it was that bad!

Ate and drank at the Sandbar on my two week trip in San Pedro. Most of the time the service was pretty decent. Drinks were the same price as the other bars on the beach. Would recommend stopping by for a few drinks and a snack.

The staffs are very helpful, The room is basic, the AC is a bonus. I like the privacy curtain. If there is a light next to the bed and it will be great! The toilet is acceptable but it is really small. Your knees are basically touching the toilet door when you use it. It would be better if shower have more hooks for your towels and clothes, a little shelf to put your shower gel and shampoo. The location is all right, next to 2 supermarkets, few mins walk to the main streets of San Pedro.

We stayed in their apartment, which is located on the upper floor of the adjacent building right at the street corner. It has big bedrooms, good size bathroom, kitchen and livingroom as well as a nice size patio. Unfortunately, they skimped a little on furniture and general equipment. So there's only a table with 4 (rather uncomfortable) chairs on the patio + a hammock. Not ideal if you want to hang out and read a book or hang cloth/towls to dry etc. The living room is fine, but we didn't use that one much anyway. The kitchen is lacking a lot of things. We hardly had enough cutlery for the four of us, so you better don't plan on cooking much more than toast and eggs... The plentyful storage in the kitchen is mostly empty... The apartment is in an excellent location, basically everything can be reached on foot. There is a supermarket at only 100 m distance, the beach is right in front with access to other spots (without having to use the go-cart-heavy roads). The Sandbar themselves have a Bar/Restaurant, a small (really small) pool, an outdoor kitchen for everyone to use, free water, bath and beach towls as well as a deck on the water with beach chairs, tubes in the water and even a food/beverage service. Everyone was very relaxed and friendly and we really enjoyed our time here!

The open front bar and restaurant makes people watching easy, but it can be a bit of a pain on very windy days. However, they do deliver and their pizza is the best on the island. Their ceviche is not too bad, but the Belize version has tomatoes in it, which is not my favorite. The conch fritters were also excellent. Say hello to Trevor, the restaurant and bar manager.
