“Wonderful place for overnight for for extended stay”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Sea Front Inn has been a great place for our group to stay for the past 10 years. It is very clean, cool, comfortable, and safe. The staff is very helpful, but not obtrusive. The decor is the prettiest in town. The location is right on the bay and easy walking distance to downtown and the port and bus station. The host and staff are very good to help with travel or any other issues. There is nice area to sit in the evening on the second floor that has large windows that can be opened for ocean breezes. There is a pier just across the road that also provides a nice place to watch the ocean.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. Would recommend the first or third floors, but all are fine.

Good location, good AC, clean enough rooms (window in shower, mildewy and rotten). Great deck upstairs, with a nice breeze and a good view of the water. Lots of road noise. Don't think I'd stay here again. Although it was not a bad choice.

Thank you for your review for Sea Front Inn. Yes we are very convenient to town at SFI, many people enjoy the stay because of the location. There is not much better than waking up at the sea side and then being walking distance to town and access to all of Toledo! One of the problems of the tropics, though, in being by the sea and it being rainy season, dampness is something that is hard to fight. A mildew smell is something that we must fight at all times. If you found rotting wood would you please email us and let us know what room, so that it can be repaired. We look forward to having you as a return guest and please let us know while you are here with us if something needs attention!!!! Thanks.

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.
