This was our first time in Belize and we relied on previous reviews from Trip Advisor to pick our resort. We were not disappointed! Sapphire is a great place if you are looking for a relaxing and secluded spot. From the minute we got there the staff was very attentive. Everyone was so nice and friendly.
We were picked up by Ben in San Pedro town (it is about a 15-20 minute boat ride to the resort). When we arrived we were given a cell phone and mifi. We really didn't use the cell phone much, only our last day, because we preferred to leave electronics behind & enjoy vacation time. But it is a very nice touch. The mifi came in very handy for us, we used it at night for emails and to research our excursions.
Our room was a condo like unit. Sapphire isn't a large resort, and this is what we were looking for. If you are into large resorts with tons of activities, you may want to keep looking. Quiet & secluded was exactly what we were looking for and we found it here.
The restaurant was very good and every night James would ask us what time we wanted dinner and they made sure we were well taken care of. One morning we went fishing & we brought back a barracuda & gave it to the restaurant & we had two really fresh delicious meals cooked for us with the fish we caught. It was awesome! Breakfast is served daily, and was fresh and very filling (at a great price too).
The beach is nice and we spent a few afternoons just relaxing in the hammocks with some cocktails. The beach is raked every morning & cleaned by the staff. Overall we couldn't have asked for a better vacation, nicer people & staff & a great time.
If you go, make sure you try some fresh coconut & coconut milk which the staff was happy to cut for us!
We will definitely be back. Many thanks to Sam, Luis, Ben, Smokey, Jossie & Rafael for a great time!
