Belizean Shores Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We have been wanting to go to Ambergris Caye for awhile now and decided this was the time. It was the best decision for location, people and the most relaxing vacation ever taken.
You did not need to know what the time was, date, actually had to really thing about the day only when we knew it was nearing the end of our time there at Belizean Shores.
The service we received at Belizean Shores was above and beyond. Anything you needed they would do their best to provide it, and that was including getting someone to come directly to the resort to sell us a variety of fresh fish.
Penny Bonilla one of the Resort's best assets, was such a great host and made sure our stay was all about us and made sure we were happy always, Also, at the reception desk, Jose, Denis and Oscar you were so great and helped us in any way possible. You are all the best!!!
From riding bicycles along the shoreline, walking up and down the shores, jumping off the dock for a refreshing swim and fishing from the peer for your dinner, and meeting such genuinely kind people everywhere we walked, stopped, making new friends.
We would definitely go back and stay on this island and at Belizean Shores resort without hesitation. The grounds/beach are well groomed, very clean immaculate and beautiful.
The only cons, if they are cons would be the road behind the resort is unpaved and with large pot holes, made getting around a bit difficult even by golf cart, but we found that using the bicycles were a very nice option and actually enjoyed it better. Also another thing is having the kitchen is nice, but there is no dishwasher, but the maid service does your dishes for you. So with these cons are added pros to the awesome service provided.
There is no "fitness" center, but the resort and island give options of the bicycles and walking and running on the beach as great options.

Just got back from our vacation at Belizean Shores Resort. This is a very nice property. Friendly people. The welcomed us off the boat with a Rum Punch and a cold towel. The resort grounds are very well maintained and everything was very nice. The condo itself was good. The only complaint I would have was I found it was a little under-stocked. They didn't have many knives, no oven mitts, no tin foil, etc. But those are minor things. Housekeeping was very good! Pool is nice. Everything seems quite quiet.

Our biggest complaint would be the ridiculous prices of the food! The resort restaurant is crazy expensive! Then there is a 12.5% tax on everything and of course, the tip. Be sure to go to a grocery store in town (NOT the one down the street from where the water taxi picks you up! That one was beyond belief expensive!!! $8-9 US for a tiny little jar of jam or peanut butter)!!! We found Richie's one of the best priced and they had a decent amount of stuff. We realized very quickly that it pays to rent a golf cart from the resort and take it into town (fun ride on the bumpy road!) to buy groceries. For fruit/some veggies - buy them at the little stands - not at the grocery stores.

Overall, we were very pleased with the Belizean Shores! For the price per night, this was a good value resort and we were very comfortable there (2 adults/3 children). Love the size of this resort!

Room Tip: We had 10B and it was good. All rooms are nice and close to the pool and the ocean.

After being met at the dock by one of the staff members with a rum punch in hand for us, we were escorted to our suite which was exceptional. Waterfront, quiet, Living room/kitchen area, bedroom and bath. Private patio overlooking the water was perfect for us. The pool with a swim up bar in the middle was delightful. You will want to try the "Mike-aritas" (margaritas) and there was a chocolate banana creation that Mike made that was amazing. All the staff were top notch. The location is about 3 1/2 miles north of San Pedro. If you are looking for night life and lots of action, head to San Pedro. If you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing, quiet place, head to Belizean Shores. We plan to return!

Room Tip: Our suite was perfect and on the water front..12c.

We never stayed there, so this review is only about my experience trying to communicate and arrange for our wedding ceremony with them. We exchanged many emails, in all of them I was very clear that we only can stay with them one night. Along the way, couple of time their response to my question about what would be included in the package was:" you book your room and pay for it, then we will let you know what is included". I was getting a sense that I may fell in a trap, so I kept asking clarifying questions. But finally after a week that I assumed we are agreeing on everything, they sent me a quote for 3 nights room and told me this is the only option! I withdrew our plan with them and was very disappointed.
So maybe the location is good, but when negotiating with them, be very careful.

Just returned from fabulous 10 day stay at oceanfront room with loft. Met by Penny and all of her wonderful staff from boat taxi delivery right into our excellent room. Loved the way we were looked after, and special shoutouts to Penny, Mac, Sharon (housekeeping), Mike and Alex at the pool bar! Wayne and Kenny at tuff enuff were great on our holchan/shark ray alley tour as well. Room was spacious, clean and the deck view was incredible. Any small problems were dealt with immediately and to our satisfaction. The size of this resort, about 48 rooms in total I think , make it very cosy and easy to manage. We chose not to rent golfcart and saved ourselves $400 over the 10 days. We were 2 couples in this room with loft but did not run over each other. We rented bikes 3 times to ride into town 1/2 ride. We even walked the 3.5 miles one day-and took water taxi back. Had groceries and beer delivered free from village market grocery. Glad we did not stay right in San Pedro as just a little too busy Although it is a charming town. Really impressed by Belizeans as very very friendly . Recommend belizean shores to everyone!

We just returned from our two week stay at the Belizean Shores Resort. We had one of our best trips ever. We travel every winter and spring to a tropical resort as we live in snow country. The people at the resort were the nicest of any country and resort we have every traveled. Penny who meets you at the boat, with a rum punch when you arrive was the nicest person ever and always remembers your name. Any request we made was always taken care of promptly. The property was really well kept and very beautiful. The units are a little older but seem to be well maintained. We enjoyed having a kitchen to prepare the fresh fish we bought from fisherman Johnson. The resort will call him and he will meet you on the beach with his fresh caught fish. We had lots of wonderful lobster while we were there. They also have a fresh vegetable boat that comes from Belize City every Wednesday morning. So you can plan out meals. We had some wonderful meals out, but it gets kind of expensive to eat every meal out as the food is very expensive. All of the bartenders and waiters we so nice. We loved the swim up bar and Mikey was great. We used Tuff e Nuff tours for an all day catamaran snorkel, fishing,booze cruise and beach barbeque the best $80.00 we spent. Wish I was still there. Don't forget bug spray and a flash lite or head lamp to walk to restaurants at night. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We were in 2A close to beach and pool. All the units in 1,2,11,12 I would recommend.

Stayed there as part of a package book for our vacation. As far a resorts go it was nothing special or above and beyond. Its what I would have expected out of a resort located where it was. They are some good amenities, pools, tennis, ping pong, garden chess, and a great end of dock swimming area. The down side was the food prices seemed high since it was there or the resorts close by or take the water taxi into town for cheaper food which then ended up being the same price after the taxi. The room was very clean and the Guest Services and Housekeeping were both very friendly and nice.
