Sea Front Inn
Ranked #11 of 18 Punta Gorda B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 1, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Sea Front Inn for a couple says while visiting Belize for the first time. Lonely Planet has this place incorrectly located on a map. It is located right on the sea. The rooms were clean and they have a very nice veranda.

The place is enormous, but still had a homey fell to it. The staff was very helpful and the owner Larry was very nice. We stayed in a room called the Manatee. We air conditioner was awesome. They might need to update the T.V., but we imagine most people will want to check out the area and not whats on the set.

We would recommend this place without reservation. Be sure to go by the Snack Shack and ask for Andy. They have a great breakfast. Also, if you tire of seafood, grab a pizza from Byron next door.

Thanks for your great review for the Sea Front Inn and Punta Gorda! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Larry and Karol have so much to share and their knowledge of the area is from the 40 years that they have lived here! The hotel is large and it is a constant work in progress. We are very proud of the new verandas and the view that they offer. Hurry back to see us and who knows what new addition will be added or in the process by time of your next visit!!! Be sure to check out our live feed camera from the veranda that you can find on the web site!

We were made to feel so welcome here. The rooms are amazing, every one of them completely unique. The atmosphere in the area is really special and the trips out and about with wild thing encounters were the most memorable and informative you could imagine!! It's a must! Love it!!!

We appreciate you taking time to review the Sea Front Inn. Striving for guest satisfaction is our primary goal! Each room, as you mentioned, is uniquely different and carries a local theme that showcases Belize. You said that you stayed in the Manatee this visit, next time you might want to try another or at least take a look at the other rooms. Each one is detailed to show off the country and some of the beauty of the chosen subject. We are constantly working on upgrading the amenities in the rooms. We look forward to having you back with us again!!!!

We stayed at the Sea Front Inn over Spring Break during a medical/dental mission trip to southern Belize. Larry and Karol are terrific hosts and were able to meet all of our requests. They truly care about their guests and are interested in getting to know everyone they host.

I am looking forward to returning to their fine hotel in the near future!

We stayed here for 1 night after a medical work trip. After sleeping all week in a cabin without AC, these rooms were a godsend! The rooms are spacious and well decorated, the staff was friendly as well.

This is a wonderful place to hang your hat in this out-of-the way rain foresty location. Larry Smith, ex-pat owner is a fund of stories and useful information, having lived in Belize for 40 years. He'll also steer you to the best restaurant in town, which happens to be owned by his daughter, April.

My wife & I have just returned from spending three weeks at the Sea Front Inn. That was our third visit over the last ten years, so we were delighted when we were given a free upgrade to the beautifully hand carved and sculpted Penthouse! Once again, the owners Larry & Karol Smith made us feel very welcome & comfortable in, what we can only describe as the best hotel in Punta Gorda. The view over the sea from our high vantage point was magical! An ever changing picture on a daily basis and the perfect place to enjoy a Belizean rum & coke! The journey from Scotland seems to get shorter every time & we will be back to enjoy our trips up jungle with Wildthing Wild Adventures. Should you find yourself in Punta Gorda, do not miss the chance of a lifetime! Find Roberto Echeverria at The Snack Shack on town. Incredibly knowledgeable guy who does more high quality tours, both land and sea, than you can shake a stick at! We wouldn't have travelled there three times from Scotland & done tours every second day ... if it wasn't one of the best holidays we've ever had! Enjoy folks!

We are thrilled that you took advantage of the tours and much that Punta Gorda and Toledo has to offer. We look forward to having you return!!!!!! Thank you again for reviewing the Sea Front Inn!

We have stayed at this delightful hotel once or twice a year for many years. They always have clean and comfortable rooms that are quiet and secure. The coffee is superb and the breakfast is delicious. The new verandas make for a great view of majestic sunrises on the ocean side---wonderful photo-op. Easy walk to town or nearby restaurants. Larry, Karol, and staff are attentive hosts and capable of planning your fishing or jungle excursions. Great value!
