We stayed at the Sea Breeze on two separate nights on our way to and from Belize via Cancun - Chetumal - Corozal. This hotel is a little rough around the edges and I would call it charming. The Sea Breeze is great for those wanting a nice place to stop and enjoy something different from the tourist havens of San Pedro and Placentia.
We arrived late our first night and Gwyn was the quintessential host. There's a nice little bar in the hotel and Gwyn is a great guy to sit, chat and have a drink with. Considering the amount of people he must host in a year I'm sure that it's difficult to be continually interested in talking with strangers or people that he'll never meet again. And yet he did just that. In some smaller hotels the owners hide behind their hired staff. Gwyn is an excellent resource as he's been in Central America for quite a few years and has a lot of knowledge about the area.
The atmosphere is somewhat like an old fashioned rooming house. Nice to sit and chat with the other guests. An ample breakfast is available for about $5.00 with all the coffee you want plus you have the option to use the guest fridge.
Depending on the room that you get, the bed may not be the most comfortable; however, the sheets and the rooms are clean. Bathrooms are older and the showers work fine. Good value for the price with a nice view of the ocean. If you are traveling by water taxi to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye - the hotel is a 5 minute walk to the pier. Water taxi to San Pedro is about $24.00 US each and takes about 2 hours.
Will definitely plan for a longer stay in Corozal the the next time we are in Belize. This is a great place to begin your Belize adventure.
Thanks Gwyn -
