Costa Maya Reef Resort Ambergris Caye

Had booked for end of Jan. 2012 from Sunchaser, who aquired this property about 2 years ago through our time share.

Flights Booked, excursions booked..then we got a call from Sunchaser saying that they have no association with this resort, as it was no longer up to their standards and has been closed. We were left high and dry. We did find another place to rent. So anyone who has booked this resort, from Jan 6 2012 going forward, please get ahold of your booking agent..as it is CLOSED!!

There are several reviews on this site from just last month. I was up there last winter and had drinks/lunch at the bar. The place is older, but, was freshly painted and didn't appear run down.

I'm wondering if the company you were dealing with severed their ties with the property, but, that it remains open.

Anyone know for sure?

Bummer. Seems a shame. Nice place for those who wanted to be further from town.

We also had reservations booked for Feb. 2012 and we were told the same thing, unfortunately we have not found other accommodations yet and are waiting to find something thru Interval International, doesn't leave us with a whole lot of time especially to book for 2 weeks. where were you able to find a place?

we booked at the Banana Beach Resort. It was very resonable, of course, it costs..unlike a time shate you have prepaid for!!

Oh well..we are paying 1150$ for one week with a 150$ credit at their eating establishment. This is an oceanfront one bedroom suite. It is 1.5 miles from San Pedro, so a little closer.

To say the LEAST, I am extremely p*&^*'ed at sunchaser, but they are in control and can do anything they really want when it comes to buying and "dropping" resorts. We do have very little say.

CMR is about 7 miles north and your current property is nicer so you should have a nicer vacation
