“Our "Happy Place"”
Reviewed August 21, 2008

If you're looking for 5-star accommodations with room service and a concierge, you're looking at the wrong place. However, if you want a tranquil and beautiful setting, this is the place for you. It is quaint, charming, and simply lovely. Our host, Linda, was knowledgeable and helpful. The dock where ferries pick up for activities is a three-minute walk. The room was clean, and nicely decorated. The view from our verranda was simply breath taking, and there was always a gentle breeze.

It's the perfect place to relax, reflect, and enjoy the time with your loved one(s). When I'm stressed, i close my eyes and return to this "happy place."

  • Liked — The setting - it wasn't too far from town, but far enough to not have to deal with nightly raucous
  • Disliked — It doesn't have its own swimming pool; the beach was littered with seaweeds.

We absolutely loved Coral Bay Villas. From the first moment we arrived, we knew this was a great spot. Our villa was right on the beach... with a long white beach with palm trees lining each side. Very secluded..... about a 5-10 minute walk to the town, but far enough away that it's very quiet and romantic. They do not have their own dock, but have free use of the Carribean Villas dock right next door (with great chairs and hammock). Coral Bay is kept in maticulate shape...constant cleaning and tidying of the place. Nightguard on duty too. There is a fantastic breeze that goes right through the building (AC too). Owners (Linda & Herm) were very accomodating (Linda greeted us late at night and welcomed us). They have great suggestions for activities and are quick to help you set up anything (Thanks Ann Marie!!). Great location...great price...very romantic. Ambergris is quite an expensive island..this is a great spot to be!!!

  • Liked — Location - beautiful and secluded...close to everything however
  • Disliked — Bed was somewhat uncomfortable. That is about it.

Clean spacious facility, super security and staff, compared to other hotels we saw the beach was cleaner, and it was smaller and thus undoubtably more personable, and closer than other places of similar quality to walk to town.

  • Liked — No crowds
  • Disliked — Mosquitos (they were everywhere - not just at this accommodation)

This dive vacation is one of the best. Coral Bay Villas has less than ten condo sized units and the couple who run it live there, help with anything you need, and are fair and honest. This is where you want to be on Ambergris - walking distance to the small town yet quiet and secluded. The north end of the island may require a boat ride to get to. We stayed over Christmas and missed 2 nights due to missed airflight connections, so Herm and Linda reimbursed us for a night even though it was prime season.

Stayed December 2006
