“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We stayed here the evening before our return flight. We thought it was a great value for the money. Got it cheaper booking online. The breakfast thats included was wonderful. Hot food served buffet style in the Princess' beautiful dining room. We enjoyed a nice steak dinner here too. A lot to do at the hotel... Food, drink, 24 hour swimming pool, casino, bowling alley, theater, game room and more. You can book your island tours right from the private diving shop at the hotel. Just a taxi ride to Cucumber Beach in Old Belize. The hotel is in a safte part of the city.
We did have to wait a very long time for towels, absent from our room, to be delivered and the smell in the lobby was really bad.

This would be a good place to stay for 1 or 2 nights but not longer. Not much to do around this hotel as there is no beach in Belize City, you have to go out of town to find one. The hotel itself is in much need of updating and they are starting to work on this. The restaurant on the water is very good to eat in. Staff was excellent.

We stayed here only for one night...the hotel was clean, quiet, and safe....the staff were very nice and accomodating. We felt it was a little expensive for Central America (we live in Honduras) at $126 per night. The hotel room itself was nothing fancy....... but it did have a comfortable King Size Bed...and the casino was a nice diversion. Fun. As for the WiFi in the rooms... our standards are not very high as we live in Roatan Honduras where the internet has been spotty at best over the past 5 years. We'd likely stay here again, though it should probably be about $60 or $75 a night...not $126.

After pulling into town and sizing up the very few options which ranged from outrageously overpriced to downright scary, we settled on the Princess. The rooms were adequate and clean, but the wifi in the rooms was awful as stated elsewhere. It worked well in the lobby/bar/restuarant. The parking area in front had security, which is definitely necessary. Service was generally unenthusiatic, but with a few exceptional employees. Overpriced, but it did include the (mediocre) breakfast buffet. Dinner was good though, I had the best grouper sandwich in memory.

We stayed here one night before we went to San Pedro. The hotel was average. The hotel clean and the employees were nice.

The room was clean, the view was okay. The wifi sucked. (nothing like American standards, but then again we weren't in America)

The casino was okay. Nothing like Vegas, but it has a few tables and some slots.

Things got off on the wrong foot at the Princess. The front desk staff was not friendly. The national language is english, so I know they understand people from the states. Or is it that the front desk girls don't like Americans.The key to our room did not work in the lock. After standing in the heat and humidity for a hour, we were finally let in our room. We found out that the batteries in the door lock were dead. It took another hour for the maintanance guys, (that's right 2) to change the batteries in the lock, as the hotel did not give the maintanance guys access to batteries.

Now in the room, there is no hot water or water pressure. The refrigerator did not work. I took off the shower head a knocked out the grit, but after 2 minutes it was clogged again.

The brighter side of our stay at the Princess was the breakfast our room came with was good. Fresh fruit, made to order omelets, and the restaurant staff was good. They were personable and we had great conversation with them. Maybe the hotel should put the restaurant staff behind the front desk.The pool was nice. The AC was cold, and all rooms have an ocean view. There is a movie theater that shows first run movies and a snack bar.The adjacent restaurant has great food. The hotel is in the better side of Belize City and is safer to walk in than South Belize City.

Although the Princess is in a better neighborhood, I don't believe it justifies the room rate or was the safety feature included in our room rate?

Room Tip: Make sure you have hot water and pressure.
