“Great location”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Belizean shores is a great resort, not too small or too large and very welcoming. Reception and bar staff were great. The condo style accommodation was a great size (go for 2nd story). The Caribbean look and feel matches the coast and compared to what else is on offer on the island we could not fault it in terms of location, price and atmosphere. The Tuff Enough guys were helpful and it was so convenient having them located onsite. The water taxi service is really handy (i was a bit concerned after reading some reviews but really - have a watch, make plans or go with the flow and you are fine). Additionally other restaurants north of the resort will pick you up and reception will book for you. If your fit or seek adventure walk, kayak, cycle or golf buggy around (all available from reception) - we did all of the above around the island and had a fab time.

This was a nice hotel outside of town. We had an amazing time and were looking to get away from crowds and do some diving. Our room had a small kitchen and was literally steps from the ocean. While we had a few ants, in our kitchen the staff took care of it right away. The food and products are pricey so stock up before you get to the resort as its quite a distance from town but was ideal for us! The only thing that could have made it better was an onsite workout facility!

Room Tip: We stayed in 1A, amazing right on the water worth the extra money!

This is a really nice resort hotel on Ambergris Caye. This was my first trip to Belize and I was travelling with my brother. Read the previous review and felt comfortable with what I read. I was a bit concerned because the nightly rate was a bit low compared to other places. Once we arrived in San Pedro, we were greeted by the courteous hotel water taxi and zipped right over to the resort where we were again greeted with a nice beverage and shown the property, by Penny (manager). I was looking to use the free WiFi, but it was unstable in our suite, but better on the grounds. The buildings are like a 4-plex with 2 1-bedroom units downstairs and the 2 upstairs units had room for sleepers in a loft. We stayed in 2D (a very short walk to the beach) with twin beds in the loft and king/queen below. We managed with the 1 full bath on the main level. Cable TV was as if we were still in the states (commercials and all). Food at the resort was not the bargain I was hoping for, but it was competitive with similar resorts. It's an easy walk to CoCo Beach or Captain Morgan as an alternative for eats and drinks. I will definitely consider this resort for my next trip.

Room Tip: Bldg 1 and 2 are away from most foot traffic and close to the pier/beach.

This was our first trip to Belize so we we did our research and chose Belizean Shores based on location, reviews and cost. We could not have been happier with our choice. We traveled with our 3 and 5 year old kids this trip and we all loved the condo we got. We stayed in 10B which is a second story unit with a loft. The kids slept in the loft, which had a TV and they were out of our hair for the evening. The unit was so spacious, it also had a big patio which faced the ocean and pool. We had breakfast and coffee there each morning and waited for the burrito guy to ride up on his bike, ring his bell and sell us breakfast and/or lunch burritos.
Now for what really made our stay so great, the staff. Penny is the resort manager and she was awesome. Full of advice and friendly suggestions to make your trip perfect. You could just tell that she had things under control at the resort. She met us as we got off the water taxi and was present for the entire trip. Next was Raquel at the pool bar. She was also incredibly friendly and took extra special care of us, especially the kids. The first day she fixed them a banana and chocolate smoothy and they were hooked for the week.
The pool is great, very well designed, but if you wanted the really fancy pool and pool bar, then wander south down the beach to their sister resort, Coco Beach. We made some friends down there. Our rooms were way bigger and cheaper, but they did have a fancier resort all around. It's all in what you what is important to you.
The WiFi didn't work in the room, no big deal, it worked on the patio and at the pool. We don't go on vacation to be tied to the computer. The water taxi to town leaves right from our dock, we also booked our snorkel tour to Hol Chan/Shark Ray Alley with the guys on the dock and they were fanastic. A must do while in San Pedro.
Hope this helps, we will definitely be back to La Isla Bonita and will stay at the Belizean Shores again.

Room Tip: There are 12 buildings on the resort each with 4 condos, 2 up and 2 down. Buildings 12 and 1 are rig...

This was our second journey to San Pedro.
Great little Island, full of Nature.

The Condo type room was very pleasant, lots of room, well equipped.
Water Pressure very low, Phones not working, Wifi on and off most of the time
The Pool was just great with a nice Bar and Raquel making great Drinks for us.

Street - Food Vendors are roaming at the Resort, will try to sell you Fish or other products you do not want or need.

My Wife , purchased food om the Beach and got very Sick for two days.

The Sister Resort Coco Beach got a Elegant Gourmet Restaurant, but very pricy.
The Resort got a nice Family Restaurant, The Tavern, great fresh Food, outstanding Ceviche and Grouper. You must try the Belizean Breakfast, very unique.

A Happy Hour from 12 to 6 will keep you HAPPY.

A nice place to relax, we used the Catamaran trip and the Water Taxi twice.
A Oasis on a Island.

Room Tip: Around the Pool, you have Construction on the South Section.

This was our second year in a row to stay at Belizean Shores resort. Some of the staff have changed, but the same great service and clean rooms are still there. It is the perfect place to decompress from city life, but still close enough to San Pedro to keep things from getting boring. We dove and relaxed this year and it couldn't have been better, unless someone else had payed!!! A water taxi can take you anywhere you want to go and it's just a short plane trip to the mainland for day trips inland. Just back a day and already planning to go back next year!!! There is fancier and there is more expensive, but there is no better place to stay than Belizean Shores!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side are quieter due to new construction starting at 8 am'ish on the south si...

I cannot say enough great things about the staff and the way they treat you like family. As before I asked for and got my usual room 11c with beach front view and breeze. Sure there’s the construction next store but if you still in bed or you room at 800am or all day for that matter then something’s wrong. I can attest the tours are not only inexpensive but well thought out and fun. The resort has two great bars, wonderful pool, bikes and golf carts to rent. I will agree the swim up bar that needs to stay open a little longer but it's no big deal and along with Magic Mike makes it all happen there with his great refreshing drinks. A MUST TRY is “Mikes Dirty Barrel Rum” drink, Milk Shake!!!!! I have met the owner several times and he always checking to see how your stay is, and is are very accommodating. Penney who is everywhere doing everything at all times is a the best in guest host I’ve ever met. She knows how to keep her vacationers happy and enjoy their time at the resort. I’m happy to say even thou I went during Spring break there was none of the foolishness going on both on the property or in town. The weather was the best yet and I’m ready for my next visit the Shores. Belize it or not this place is the best of the best for your money. Enjoy!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Inside pool area, 11c has the best views and sea breezes. Also has been recently upgraded.
