“Amazing Hamanasi”
Reviewed March 19, 2008

Hamanasi Resort is absolutely the best!! Had such a wonderful time we are planning on going again next year. The snorkeling and adventure tours were wonderful. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff made our stay even more enjoyable. Was a perfect vacation.

Fantastic white sand beach, great for families, and honeymooners! a walk along the beach brings you to several other resorts, bars, resturants (bonus as most resort are fairly remote). Staff very accomodating, friendly, informative. Renewed our vows here which was extremely special. Patricia went out of her way to help organize a great seculded beach ceremony & private beach dinner. The treehouses are secluded & very special - a MUST to stay in!

  • Liked — Unique, out-of-the-odinary, 1-of-a-kind, gorgeous, special
  • Disliked — a little remote, a rental car helps, dusty, bumpy roads into the resort

If you want to experence Belize this is the place to go. You wont find more friendly people. It is the most relaxing vacations we have had in years. The staff did everything to make our stay the best. I just want to think Leon,Joe,Golden and Stephanie and lets not forget the "KING". You cant go wrong staying at the Hamanasi Thanks Ben and Karen Garrison

This was a truly special place. The best thing about it was the people. We have stayed at big name luxury resorts, but we have never been treated as well as we were at Hamanasi.
The dive team was outstanding- competent, professional, well organized, and they made service their top priority. And while everyone knows that the diving in Belize is world class, I have to say that when you have the right crew, the right captains, it can turn a special dive into a life changing dive. The crew knew every fish, every corner of the reef, they explained every little island. Thank you Kamalley, C Dog and SamIAm especially!
As for the resort itself, their inland adventures were great also, with smart, knowledgeable guides. Don’t miss the Mayan ruins trip!
The food was fantastic, fresh and delicious, unpretentious. We slept in a tree house which I can't recommend enough. We found the simplest of luxuries had the most restorative effect on our spirits. Two hours in a hammock sipping punch after a long day’s diving will wipe away years of cubicle life! Thank you, thank you Hamanasi for a wonderful stay. We will be back!

No, my wife and I don't dive. We don't even snorkel. We're not into fish, we’re into birds. That is why we selected one of the hotel's treehouses for a 4-night stay during which we visited nearby national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. However, while the treehouses may be perfect for a honeymoon, we were a bit disappointed since – contrary to the advertising - there aren’t many birds neither around Hamanasi’s treehouses nor on its grounds (except for a few grackles and the occasional passing frigate bird). Perhaps because there are many cats. Don't let there be any misunderstanding: we love cats too and these cuties are well fed by the staff! But when nature is calling, they deposit it in the sand near the open-air restaurant. So, apart from the aromas of tropical spices that season your otherwise delicious food you may enjoy a less delightful odour. Anyway, it's still a lovely place – one of the nicest we stayed in Belize.

I can only repeat what everyone else has said, a great place to take an exciting vacation! My wife and I wanted to enjoy our 5 year anniversary in a small secluded place, NOT another Sandles, Beaches, etc. resort. Hamanasi was perfect. It is small enough that the entire staff knows your name and you know the names of almost all guest there.

We chose Belize after reading about the great diving/snorkleing of its barrier reef, and Hamanasi did not dissapoint. We also went on jungle hikes, zip-lining through the jungle canopy and toured Mayan ruins, truly a once in a lifetime trip (unless we go back again!)

If you are someone who can not live without TV, or constant yapping on your cell phone, then Hamanasi will not be for you. We found not having these distractions makes this place only better!

The only disappointment (which we knew before we went) is the beach is not the soft sugary white sand you may expect, you have to go off-shore to islands for that. But, we did not go there to just lie on a beach, so this was not that big a deal to us.
