“Perfectly decent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

The Princess is a very nice place to stay in Belize City. The location is in a safe part of the city, easy to walk downtown. The room was clean and comfortable, everything worked perfectly. The staff were very pleasant and professional. That smell that other posters were complaining about is the sea. It's just outside and smells like...the sea! Breakfast is complimentary and very good. Overall, this hotel is a very good value.

Stayed November 2013, traveled solo

This hotel is on nice beach front property, however it is in need of a lot of updating and technology. The hotel staff tries there best to help along with there security. The food is good, but needs better quality with a wide range of international foods as this hotel mainly has international guests from USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, and South America. The hotel room amenities are bad and need to be much better. This hotel needs to be totally redone in a classy way and become a part of the IHG Group Intercontinental Hotels as Belize has no FIVE STAR classy hotels.

Room Tip: Insist to hotel that they need to update in a big way!!!

My family and I just returned back from the independence cele in BZE,we stayed at the Princess hotel for 12nights .Great Improvement has been made since our last stay.The hotel has a new GM (EROL) who is striving for improvements,very social able and eager to please.The strength of this hotel is its employees who are always helpful and willing to help. the front desk attendant (YVETTE) is warm and welcoming.The dinning room supervisor(CHRISTOPHER) and the cook (BRENDA) goes above and beyond to make your stay and meals enjoyable.The Princess offers a family oriented stay with plenty to do for the entire family,can't wait for the 2014 celebration to return to this hotel .

Room Tip: All rooms are water front rooms

Not sure what people write bad reviews about , but my stay was great. The lobby does indeed have a little bit of an odd smell but the hotel is on the ocean so maybe that is it. The staff was great , the omlett lady at breakfast was great (which is included in your stay) , when we needed something the housekeeping was right upstairs . The only negatives I have to say is people can smoke in the lobby ;/ YUCK and WI FI was bad upstairs in the room so we spent alot of time downstairs.

Room Tip: THe 6th floor is all I can attest for seeing as how thats where we stayed and it was beautiful

I have stayed at the Princess in the past and found it disappointing. I decided to try it again, stayed there with family members and we had a great stay. They removed the carpet in the rooms and retiled everything, replaced the old bed and furniture. The staff in the lobby are very efficient and the GM is quite friendly. The menu in the restaurant is new and we enjoyed buffet style on the week-end. The gym and pool is clean and they have a bowling alley. There is a casino with complimentary local drinks and friendly staff.
Overall we had a great time and will stay there again.

It was a family vacation and we booked a room for 4 people. The hotel is big so, I thought it was going to be a good place to stay. The first thing we noticed was the smell of cigarets at the entrance of the hotel (because of the casino). We didn't receive help of the staff when taking our luggage. The room was ok except for the horrible odor and the two cockroaches we found on it. If you are going to Belize, do yourself a favor and don't stay at this hotel.

The positive was the restaurant staff, they were excellent. The hotel was dark, poorly taken care of and smelly. I traveled with a group of 40 people from Washington,DC. We had to get our room keys re-keyed each day for 4 days. My room had a TV remote that had to be re-keyed 4 times, 3 in one day. The air condition was turned off during the day so we had to request it be turned on for times we got back from touring earlier than 3pm. They had 5 different wi-fi sites and only one worked in your room. The club had music so loud it awoke me each weekend nite from Fri - Saturday at 10pm. I was on the 4th floor. Please stay at another hotel!!!!!
