Blue Tang Inn
Ranked #1 of 21 San Pedro B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 21, 2014

This American family owned (thanks Kristin!) and managed boutique hotel is conveniently located within blocks of all downtown attractions yet at the end of a side street with no traffic. Fanny, the manager, is awesome as well as Alan and the rest of the staff who are courteous, friendly and willing to help with anything.

We arrived a week before the date we selected to marry expecting to pick the perfect venue and confirm the officiant, photogs, etc. Little did we know that Fanny could and would arrange everything to have the sweetest, most wonderful wedding right on the beach in front of the Blue Tang Inn.

Room Tip: Try for the ocean front rooms, the side and middle rooms have limited views.

We spent a week at the Blue Tang during the Xmas holidays. It was a wonderful stay. The staff were friendly and constantly making sure the Inn was clean for the guests. After walking along the beach in both directions many times, we really felt that the location of the Blue Tang couldn't be beat. The dock in front of the Inn was amazing and we enjoyed lounging, swimming and snorkeling every day we were there. The morning breakfast was delightful and the lady that was there every single morning of our stay made sure all items were stocked for the guests. The pineapple was to die for!!! We had a room with a full kitchen and I only wished we had thought to bring more things to prepare in the room to take advantage of this great kitchen. Items were pricey at the grocery store, so perhaps bringing a couple of boxes of KD or lunch things for the kids would have been a smart/economical decision. There was a little store about a 2 minute walk away from the Inn that was great for grabbing drinks and munchies. I am so happy we followed the advice of many other Trip Advisor reviewers and went with the Blue Tang it really was an absolute perfect spot to stay and the hospitality couldn't be beat!

Thank you for the nice review on TripAdvisor for Blue Tang Inn! Guests love the fully equipped kitchen as an option for snacks or meals. We agree that the grocery store is a bit expensive. There are wonderful markets separate from the grocery store with fresh produce you can purchase. Its also just great to have the full fridge and freezer to keep your beer cool and make blended drinks! Take them to the rooftop deck and enjoy!
Thanks again for your comments!

I've stayed at the Blue Tang twice now, and would have been there three times if they had not been full. Even at that I was recommended another, similar quality accommodation for a similar price by Kristin.
The front desk staff do everything they can to make your stay pleasant; Fanny and Alan are unbelievable.
The rest of the staff are equal to the task and in fact saved my life one night when I had a diabetic low and the night security guard heard my cries for help and brought me some sugar.
The only reason I don't give them five stars is that the rooms, which are clean and functional and everything I want, aren't a five star quality.
I highly recommend the Blue Tang for your visit to San Pedro.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet but roadside is a bit louder.

Thank you for your review! You are correct, Blue Tang Inn is a nice 3-4 star hotel on the beach in San Pedro Town. Our guests enjoy comfortable, clean, brightly decorated suites with the benefit of a fully equipped kitchen. Our third floor suites take it up a notch if you like more amenities, such as vaulted ceilings, Flat screen TV and Jacuzzi bathtub and nice views. But of course you pay a bit more for those. All of our suites are a few steps from the beach and you can enjoy views from our Rooftop Deck available to all guests. We are grateful you were on the first floor, so our night watchman heard you when you needed assistance!! Thanks again for the nice review and we look forward to your future stay with us.

Our recent trip to Belize and more specifically to the Blue Tang Inn could not have been sweeter. That is the only way I can describe our experience. Kristin's help in setting up our arrangements to Fanny and Alan's hospitality and friendliness made our trip one we want to come back for. We felt as though we were staying with extended family. All the employees went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The folks at Wet Willy's and the ABC grill/bar next door extended that welcoming hospitality as well. People in general on the island of Ambergris Caye were so friendly. Everywhere we went people were sure to say hello and greet us with smiles. The trip to the mainland with Raul was fun and exciting. Raul was so wonderful we will make sure we meet him again on our trip next year. About the Blue Tang, the rooms, pool area and surrounding area was immaculate. The rooms were very comfortable and a great value. The location was perfect with easy access to the beach, downtown, airport and shopping. Their recommendation of Bella and Rachel from Bella's Magic Hands could not have been better. We had them back for more massages and manicures and pedicures. Reasonable rates and excellent service with them as well. Can't wait it return next Year for New Years Eve fun.

From the moment we initially contacted Kristin inquiring about The Blue Tang Inn to Allan booking our 8-night stay and daytime activities to our sad goodbye to Fanny, our family experienced nothing but positives. We were extremely comfortable in every aspect! Our daughter was able to get PADI certified, as Robbie and Chuck's Dive Center was nearby. Because we love sailing and snorkeling, we booked a day on the Sirena Azul to Caye Caulker and had great fun with Adolfo and Jose. The marine life around the Cayes is incredible! While we enjoyed good restaurants within walking distance in downtown San Pedro, we also rented one of the Inn's golf carts and drove to Casa Picasso for excellent dining two evenings and explored the island to/fro. We will definitely book again at The Blue Tang Inn. Thank you everyone for a memorable trip!

If you are going to San Pedro, stop searching for a hotel and book your stay at the Blue Tang immediately. Lovely, helpful staff. Clean, kitschy rooms with air con. well priced golf cart rentals. Perfect location. beachfront chairs, poolside chairs. I really don't have any complaints... accept that I couldn't stay forever.

Carefree atmosphere with warm smiles all around. Allan set up our tours and flights from Belize City. Our room was clean and spacious with a view of the waterfront. The bed was pretty hard but all the standard amenities were included along with a small kitchen. Convenient walking to great restaurants. Most guests are repeat customers so book well in advance. Their sailboat tour for snorkeling and lunching in Cay Caulker was a highlight for our group.
