10/10 Exceptional

Highly recommend this establishment! If your looking for a family trip, friends (girls) trip, solo trip, or couples trips. Go here! Love the atmosphere! Awesome drinks and food. Addition to, the staff members are helpful and friendly. And not to mention the pool looks just like the pictures. What you see via pictures is what you get!

Any place with a swim up bar where I can sip pina coladas all day is fine by me! Great breakfast and dinner too at the pier where the fish always tasted so fresh! I'll be back here next time, the staff is so friendly and really passionate about sharing Belize

Beautiful property with a friendly staff that goes the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay. Our room was cozy with a strong AC, which was good between hanging out at the pool, hiking in the jungle, and snorkeling the reef!

8/10 Very Good

Beautiful property very nice rooms. Some easy improvements more chairs at pool and better chairs on beach. Staff very friendly and work hard. However understaffed which led to less than desirable service. Despite what is said on Expedia only one menu although a few restaurants.

4/10 Fair

We want to warn you: do not book here. The staff was friendly enough, but we felt like we were being extorted. The food was not great but at least DOUBLE the price of the rest of Belize (and posted in USD). But you have no choice because the property is so isolated - you have to eat their mediocre, over-priced food. We took the hotel shuttle 30 minutes into the village of Placencia (only offered 4 times daily) to grocery shop. You should also know that the property is a 3-hour drive from the international airport, for which you will pay 300 USD ONE WAY. Small local flights were even more, so calculate that into your trip. This additional $600 was not made clear by the hotel or Expedia when booking. Also, if the hotel books a return Covid test for you, they tack on an additional $25 from the already pricey $75 pp fee. I am sure the property was once beautiful, but: doors need painting, kitchen needs upgrading. Our RCA TV remote did not match the Samsung TV and therefore did not work. The sofa was dirty with a broken cushion zipper. The patio furniture was NOT what they pictured so no lounging on our porch. The tennis courts are out of commission. When talking to other tourists and locals, word was this place was to be avoided and we were regarded with pity. I hate to even post this because I know that the local economy and these lovely people suffered during the last 2 years of Covid, but this property was so mismanaged, our trip DOUBLED in price.

6/10 Good

The hotel is about 20-25 minutes into town. The property is nice and clean w a very good size pool. However, the room is very bare boned. We did not have any chairs in our room and no towel rack. Considering how much we paid nightly, you would think they can put in something for us to hang our towels. The drive every day to town eats up gas. They offer a shuttle but you have to go on their time. Gas is expensive in Belize. We paid avg $6.25/gal. So factor that in if you drive and want to stay here.

Very disappointed with our condo this time. The pictures on line showed the condo with a balcony opening onto the beach. Our condo was off the beach. Front desk said the pictures are deceiving, but people choose their room from those pictures. Also, when checked in to our condo the toilet had been leaking all over the bathroom floor. Maintenance did come fix but not a great start! The shower was awful. No water pressure. We have stayed here before and we’re very happy but this time was very disappointing especially considering the price.

It is a very beautiful property right on the beach. The staff is so nice. My only complaint was the lack of food options with a limited menu. The staff gladly drove us to restaurants when a taxi was not available.

This was our first stop in Belize. Beautiful property right on the beach! Property is cery clean and the staff outstanding. Property needs some maintenance, there are tiles missing around the pool, and they have taken down a railing and you can see where it was. The food was delicious, and the kitchen was very accommodating. We will definitely be back.
