“Save your money, Find a different hotel!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

My Fiance and I spent 3 nights at the Princess Hotel & Casino and I would NEVER recommend this hotel to any of my friends, let alone strangers. The hotel is worth more like 25 dollars a night as oppose to 100+ per night. When we checked into our room, we did not have a remote to the TV. Apparently they do not trust their guest. We had to ask go down to the front desk to ask for a remote. On top of that, the "cable" in our room was out! at about 1pm they said someone would be right up to check on it, no one came until 8pm. After the maintenance man came up, they said they couldn't do anything about it but call the cable company. We asked for a different room and when we got our new room, the cable was working but the TV was not clear at all. The bathroom smelled horrible. I am currently pregnant and was just constantly throwing up because smelled like dead fish or old period blood. (excuse my description but that was exactly what it smelled like) We had a ironing board but not an iron. We sent our laundry in before 9am and we told we would get it back by 5 pm. We DID NOT get it back until 2 days later and when we did get it back, it was not dry cleaned. it was washed in a washing machine and our clothes had faded. We tried to leave during the day on a tour to avoid the maid service but when we got back at 4pm the maid was in our room cleaning. She left without leaving us any towels. When she did bring towels back in the room, she only brought large towels. The breakfast was horrible but thank God it was free. The milk for the cereal was left sitting out and was very warm. We paid for dinner at the hotel at the first night and my fiance's steak was cooked completely done when he asked for a medium rare steak. The t-bone steak was so small. The waitress' were extremely rude as well!! Long story short, SAVE YOUR MONEY! Find a different hotel and have a great trip!!

Room Tip: Look around and dont book online! If possible, check the hotels yourself and then make your decision...

Whenever we go into Belize City for work, we usually stay at the Princess. It was good a long time ago, in 2003 or so. It has gotten progressively worse. The smell on the compound is awful. The grounds are not well kept, trash all over, dog poop, pool looks uninviting, ground staff not too friendly at all, and parking is taken up by the Casino guests. Parking in the back is terrible, and back access not always open. The lobby reeks of smoke. The girl at the bar took ten minutes to acknowledge my presence before asking what I wanted.

The room itself had issues. The light fixture in the bathroom was hanging open. The hot water did not always work. The AC did not always work. Ironing table but no iron, and only large towels, no small face towels. Bed felt itchy. Only saving grace was a girl named Guadalupe at the front desk, she was the ONLY person who smiled. If you can stay at the Great House Inn or Radisson, do so.

I stayed here for a conference. The rooms are good, beds comfortable, flat screen tv. Bathroom could do with a bit more updates. Exterior of building needs a lot of work. Conference staff and front desk staff were very helpful. Staff at the restaurant that we go for breakfast was not so helpful and not very pleasant. Calypso restaurant food is good but could be quicker. All and all it was average at best. Had one problem, where I asked for my safe to be fixed and the maintenance guy came and tried to fix it and was to return but never did.

This was our third time staying here. We'd probably choose some place different, but we stay because one of our travel companions likes to go to the casino, and we don't like to wait up for him. We can retire, he can play and we don't have to worry about transportation to a different hotel.

The staff has been friendly and helpful both times. The rooms are large and they have sea views. The attached Calypso restaurant has good seafood. They have made some improvements since last year. We had newer towels and our bathroom was cleaner. Our a/c this year worked better, but that may have been the room. The jalousie windows in the bathroom aren't great for noise reduction or humidity control. Remember when you stay in Belize City, your hotel will probably not be like one of the resorts out on the islands.

The gift shop staff is very friendly. They have a decent selection and prices are very comparable to anywhere else.

I am not a gambler, but like I mentioned, our traveling companion is. Casino seems to be mostly locals (especially on the weekend). Last time we were there, there was a live show (dancers) that was entertaining and not too risque.

The hotel smells awful! The ocean front is full of seaweed an smells like sewage. The food was edible, but not very good. A/C didn't work in 3 out of the 4 rooms our group had. My guess is that this was a nice hotel when it was built, but that was a long time ago.

In one sentence, I got a very itching bug in my skin within 3 nights there. It's like they don't laundry bed clothes at all. The sea food restaurant had an angry lady a very good chef Who saves the restaurant , but the quality of the ingredients is in doubt

Situated right on the seafront by the Belize city marina, the best argument for chosing this hotel is the great sea view, spacious guest rooms and the Calypso restaurant. The huge lobby contains several shops, a bar, and a nice seafood restaurant.
"You never get a second chance to make the first impression", is a well known phrase, and our first impression was unfortunately rather quite average. The receptionist was ok, but nothing more. (A lack of service was also the impression by the the local tourorgianzator that called the hotel in order to get in touch with us). The Caribbean sea view from the guest rooms are awesome, but the lack of a balcony disappointed us, even though the hotel is a typical city/business-hotel, and not a beach hotel.

On the positive side, the seafood restaurant was nice, and the staff was really nice and attentive! Proffessional and informal at the same time, just the way you´d expect in the Caribbean.

The is a free WiFi all over the hotel, but basically it works best in the lower levels (we stayd in 5.floor, and experienced a lot of interruptions)

If I go back to Belize, I would probabaply choose this hotel again... mainly because of the combination of ok price (200 dollar US for 2 nights for 2 pax) , great location by the sea, and ok facilities.
