Located on the ocean with incredible views of the Gulf of Honduras, this secluded hotel offers super clean large suites with a veranda where every morning starts with a delightful continental breakfast served on the veranda. Truly a good value.

Room Tip: Ask for bay-view room

Blue Belize is a really great place to stay. Our room was on the second floor and had a huge veranda. Easy to find, with a rough road at the end, but right on the Caribbean with beautiful lawns, flowers, palm trees, fruit trees, etc. The hosts, Kate and Adam, were most efficient and helpful. Kate's breakfast, served on the veranda of our room consisted of fresh fruits (bananas, papaya, melon) and homemade mango bread, with coffee. Great way to start a day. The only regret was that we could not stay longer.

The resident dogs were friendly. There are several suitible places to eat in town, within walking distance.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room on the North side along the street. There is some truck activity in the very...

PG doesn't offer a lot of mid to high range accommodations so this is one of if not the nicest. The rooms are clean and comfortably appointed. The new managers, Adam and Kate, are very personable. Unfortunately the friendly dogs on the property are often loud at night but PG isn't known for its quietness so this is more or less par for the course. BB is on the edge of down town so its a walk to all but one of the restaurants, a car is handy if you're staying here.

BB is on the pricey end of the spectrum, especially for PG.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a shared veranda with a nice view.

I have stayed at blue Belize 3 times in between diving trips to the cayes.
A great place if you're looking for clean quiet and within walking distance of PG.
Cool airy rooms with a great view of the ocean. Adam and Kate were fantastic hosts, arranging everything from guided tours to taxis.
Ps there's Wifi too.......

Room Tip: Any of the first floor rooms are excellent

Punta Gorda is a little off the beaten track, but you'll find lots of great stuff to do. Blue Belize is a real haven, being both right on the coast (the veranda overlooks the Bay of Honduras and you can see Guatamala over the water) and on the edge of town, so you feel like you're slightly removed from it all. Having said that, the centre of town is just a 10 minute walk away so you're never that far away, and Asha's Bar & Restaurant is just a couple of minutes down 'front street' along the shore line.

The guest house itself is great - my room was spacious, with high ceilings (great for keeping the room cool on hot days) and all the amenities I needed, with a kitchenette to escape eating out for every meal.

Rachel, the owner, is great - she's a marine biologist who won a Whitley award for her work with whale sharks, but is also a fantastic host, who knows both PG and the local waters very well. You get a special kind of person at Blue Belize, and the veranda is great for meeting other guests.

Overall, I'd say that I'd return in a flash, and sincerely hope to. I had a look at a couple of other places in PG and honestly wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. I was here for work, but could easily see myself and family lounging around on the edge of town, literally a stone's throw from the water. My only criticism would be that the birds were loud at 5am and the rains had started, so was woken at 2am a couple of times, but you are going to find that wherever you go!

Usually, our vacations are full-tilt boogie. This time we were looking for a spot to relax. Blue Belize was the perfect prescription for us. The flat was roomy...a lving room with a fully equipped kitchenette, a comfortable bedroom and a bathroom. The best part for us was the veranda. We enjoyed laying in the hammocks while reading our Kindles and drinking in the beauty of the Caribbean Sea with our eyes, less than one hundred feet from the shore. The sunrises were amazing.

Rachel, the owner, was away and her assistant, Torbin, was as helpful and friendly as anyone could hope for. He steered us to some nearby restaurants which we could walk to very easily. Each morning, Torbin brought us a tray of fresh fruit, fresh orange juice and homemade fruit breads. He was also very helpful in arranging water activities as well as visits to nearby Mayan ruins and a cacao plantation.

We managed to drive less than twenty-five miles during our eight day stay because we could walk to most places in the village. Coming from Los Angeles, this aspect enhanced our great getaway. We would stay at the Blue Belize again in a hearbeat.

...but not great. If we could give 3.5, we would. Pretty views and big rooms (the latter might matter to some), and certainly nothing to complain about (except the neighbour cutting grass from 6am (hence sleep quality 3 stars), but that's not BB's fault).

It's just one of those places that doesn't 'engage'. You are safe to spend your money here, but you can get more welcoming places for similar money, elsewhere in PG.

Room Tip: ask for the big one!
