Loved the cottage in which we slept, especially the screened-in porches and the early a.m. coffee delivery to drink while the sun rose. The meals were scrumptious. The staff were uniformly gracious. The snorkeling guides were excellent. As a person who has to be gluten-free, I was very impressed with the care they took and with the excellent gluten-free alternatives they provided.

Everything was wonderful . . . all of the staff including the snorkeling guide, the food, my room, the beauty (both natural and the buildings, etc.) the massage, the gift shop, the two adorable dogs, the COVID health precautions, and the boats. I'd return in a heartbeat. (Masks were not required of guests because all 20 guests and all the staff were vaccinated. I don't know if the hotel required proof of vaccination but the snorkeling group did.) The staff were all masked per Belize law. Given that there was only one lodging on the island, it felt very safe to be unmasked. Plus we all had negative COVID tests a few days before we arrived.) I was a part of a group of 15 snorkelers from Coral Triangle Adventures. I highly recommend them as well.

Returned to this quiet, beautiful, relaxing resort to spend the week snorkeling and away from all the discord in the US. It was wonderful on all accounts and we felt so safe from the airport to the resort and back. Everyone works so hard to make sure you have everything you need and want. We will be back again soon.

Wonderful island resort location with a fantastic staff. Excellent food and service. They even have a couple of dogs for those of us who feel a bit guilty for abandoning our own! We enjoyed gathering at the bar after the afternoon snorkel for drinks and a review of the highlights of each outing.
