We HIGHLY recommend getting out of Belize City ASAP! if you have to stay one night, go to the princess hotel, there is unlimited wireless free access. Its dirty and ghetto, but right on the peir pick up point. They also have 2 free movies theatres and a casino. For convenience and amenties it can be beat. But really get out of the city as fast as you can. We took our trip 30 miles off the coast on a private island via yacht. We stayed a week at the Turneffe Island Lodge which was absolutely fantastc from the fresh hot chocolate/coffee each morning, divemasters with over 3000 dives logged, shark encounters, quiet peaceful beach, less than 20 people checked in to the lodge, adventures on the hobie cat, to the kind, helpful and very friendly staff. Meals were great, home style but not gourmet. Always plenty to eat. Diving was superb! Very helpful dive masters, crabs, sharks plenty, turtles, spotted eagle rays, mantas, eels, stone fish, parrot fish,sponges galore, fish a plenty, walls, rocks formations to swim under and around, drift dives! 5 star diving for sure! One thing that is good is that its only 1 hour from the blue hole which was a fantastic dive marine-life-wise. Ambergais Caye takes 3 hours to get to the blue hole, so Turneffe Island lodge is definitely the way to go! BTW the outdoor shower was to die for, and we thought our room #5 was the best location on the island. Also, we had heard to "definitely upgrade to a private cabanna" however, when we got there the privates looked the same, and all room had been upgraded with the private showers, and there is no hearing through walls problems, so I would recommend to go for room 5. Also, everyone goes to sleep by nine-not a place for wild nights!
