We absolutely loved this hotel! The staff were very accommodating and provided us with some little snacks in our room! The hotel was clean and safe! We would definitely stay here again! They provide you with a breakfast voucher for the little cafe next store. Really enjoyed our stay!

For a hundred year home in Belize it is in amazing condition. Our room was quite, had excellent AC and the decor was perfectly pleasing. Fast WIFI everywhere. There was also a porch swing and porches that wrapped all away around each floor for beautiful panoramic views. The only I found was the restaurant on the first floor. I don't...

If you HAVE to stay in Belize then do so but what we learned was that there are water taxis that go out to the island every hour or so. Get on one of those instead of staying in Belize City. There is not much to see in Belize City, as the taxi drivers and tour guides will tell you,...

We were satisfied with the accommodations. The hotel was clean. The staff was very nice. It is a very old building and not built to today's standards. Just be aware. For whatever reason, the people next door were up all night and as they walked back and forth, the bed in our room moved up and down. Kept me up...

This is a lovely antebellum mansion style hotel a few minutes walk from the cruise ship tourist village. We booked a junior suite which was a lovely space with a king bed. There is a continental breakfast included and a decent restaurant and bar in the hotel. The food was good, the key lime pie was amazing. We arrived a...

Decent hotel with no restaurant for breakfast (needed in this area). Spacious room but quite old. Costs almost as much as the Radison next to it and offers a lot more basic standard. If its price was lower it could be good value for money.

The hotel was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and it was conveniently located. It was a shame that it was surrounded by the monstrosity of the Radisson. We stayed on our first night in Belize. We found it easy to get to from the airport, upstairs from the Smoky Mermaid, and a quick walk from the ocean. It was also...

This lovely old hotel was beautiful with well apportioned rooms. Room 5 was a suite with a tv in each room. The room had a coffee maker and they left fresh bananas and biscuits (crackers) for us. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport. The Radisson was across the...

We had a non-stop 10 day Belize adventure - 5 days on the go in the interior and 4 days in the Cayes. It was our first time in Belize and we wanted to make sure we did everything and we did! The challenge with doing everything is that you get that combination of excitement, exhaustion, etc. and we wanted...
