You would be very hard pressed to find a better dive resort and guest experience in Belize, and for that matter the entire West Caribbean! The wonderful service that the staff provides to the guests of this lovely resort is superior. This is truly Disney quality guest service without a doubt! For example, each staff member learns your first name by the second day.
The location of the Hamanasi property is also wonderful. Belize has the world's second largest reef structure, and Hamanasi is only a short boat ride away from the Southern Barrier Reef. They have a dedicated snorkel boat and a dedicated diving boat. Plus I found the equipment at their dive shop to be in great condition and top notch. I was very satisfied with all of my diving and snorkeling excursions. This staff is just as friendly out in the water on the reef as they are at the resort!
The food, oh wow the food at Hamanasi is so good! They have their own gourmet resturant and a chef on staff that knows what she is doing. Every meal we had was good, but especially the dinners! You should seriously go with one of the packages that includes all of your meals, because you are going to want to eat dinner at Hamanasi every night! There is no point in leaving this resort to dine anywhere else. The breakfast and lunches were yummy too.
One last comment about this paradise of a dive resort. The happy hours are legendary at this resort! They have an awesome bartender named King that takes great care of you every evening at the bar. If you have read some of the other reviews, you have probably already heard about King. His drinks were truly the icing on the cake. My wife and I will definitely be returning to for another stay at this lovely, perfect dive Belizean dive resort!
