Las Terrazas Resort
Ranked #10 of 55 Hotels in San Pedro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2014

This was more of a family-oriented hotel than we are used to staying in, so perhaps not the best choice if you're looking for a romantic couple's retreat.
Having said that, the rooms/suites are extremely well-equipped. I'm not sure if we received an upgrade, but we were given a large 2-bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms, kitchen, large living area. This made for a very comfortable stay. The hotel is well positioned on the beach, and the only real way of getting here from the hotel is by speedboat - either provided by the hotel, or one of the frequent water-taxis running up and down the coast. If you do want to to go into the small town in Ambergris Caye, you can cheaply rent a golf cart from the hotel and drive down a bumpy dirt road.
The service and the staff in the hotel was of a high standard.
A couple of small complaints:
- there is only one restaurant in the hotel and it struggles to cope with the number of residents; if you want to eat in-house each night, be sure to book ahead.
- Also, despite the waters of Belize being the stunning blue you see in every travel guide, the water right off the beach contains a large amount of sea grass. This means that it's not easy/pleasant to swim right off the beach; you have to use a smallish cordoned off area at the end of one of the jettys. Also, given that access to most parts of the island are by boat, there is a constant stream of speedboats running up and down the coast. This is not true just of Las Terrazas, but of all coastal hotels in this part of Belize. Since we like to spend a lots of time in the sea, it was a bit disappointing.
- Lastly, there's no gym, if that's important to you.

Having said all of that, the diving and snorkelling, easily arranged through the hotel's own dive shop, was the best I have ever experienced anywhere else in the world. The clarity and warmth of the water and the richness of the sea life was simply spectacular!

Girlfriend & I stayed at Las Terrazas June 15-22, 2014 during the San Pedro lobster-fest. We stayed in the 3 bedroom penthouse with the plunge pool on the 3rd floor. I'd highly recommend if you are taking "Your SIGNIFICANT other"!! Would definitely return if we make it back to Belize. Staff bent over backwards, Manuel & Jamal were super attentive. The staff gets it. You get the warm welcoming genuine hospitality only your grandma could extend, and its rolled out 24/7/365.

Las Terrazas is 3 miles north of San Pedro. If you decide to visit the small waterfront village, rent the golf cart. A bicycle ride is murder. The unpaved pot-hole stricken road that connects San Pedro and the Ambergris Caye resorts is like the Iraqi highway without the IED's.... But you get the idea. Biking is 3 miles too long! Rent the modified redneck golf cart! Coastal Express runs a "water shuttle/taxi" kind of service to & from Amigos del Mar dive shop/dock in the middle of San Pedro for $5Belize each way. Last run is at like 10:30pm. Cab back to Las Terrazas is about $46Belize and they can be found at any hour.

The food was superb. Portion size couldn't have been better. Breakfast is available early, and the staff at O restaurant is lights out. Chef Pappi is legit. Super strong background originating from Napa.

Local dive shop White-Sands dive shop was money! 200 yard walk to the dock from our hotel room. Chino, Carlos and Sam are Diving rock stars! Chino guided us for our Monday, Tuesday and Thursday dives. Carlos took us for our Wednesday night dive.

We flew American into Belize city (BZE), then took a prop jet from TropicAir to San Pedro regional airstrip (SPR). Cab to the Amigos del Mar dock, and Las Terrazas sent their motorboat to pick us up. Travel time was about 30mins to the resort once we hopped on TropicAir in Belize City.

The feel amid the other guests we met poolside around the end of the day discussed their dives and what other adventures were explored. The poolside staff was prompt with water and cocktail service. Obviously chosen for their timing!

Las Terrazzos is the place. Competitively priced, superb staff and conveniently located. This resort should be a top candidate for your consideration.

Room Tip: We never got a chance to hit the Spa. The only knock against this place, and this is realy digging d...

My husband and I have been to Ambergris Cay multiple times, however this was our first time to stay at Las Terrazas.(We have stayed at Victoria House and Caya Costa, I say that only so you can have something to compare the property to) I can assure you this is now our favorite property due to the "All Around" First Class Service, Staff, Food and beautiful property. The resort staff was very attentive to anything we needed however we still had our privacy. The grounds are beautifully manicured and the rooms are extremely clean and beautifully decorated. The front desk and concierge service is top notch. They can help you with boat tours, snorkeling, diving trips and just about anything you need. Please don't miss eating at the "O" Bar and Restaurant. The new chefs menu is incredible. The Grouper is over the top!! And the bar and pool staff is definitely the best on the Island. From the first phone call to book Las Terrazas Resort and thru out our stay, this resort showed us 5 star -- First class service. We cant wait to return!!!

We just came back from our stay here and we had an amazing time. We were celebrating our anniversary, and they were so kind that they upgraded our room and gave us a complimentary bottle of wine:) The property is beautiful and the condos are very well furnished and pretty. They have a lot of activities including the kayaks and hobie cat that we used while there. Their staff member that helped us with the Hobie Cat, Leron, was very helpful and kind. He showed us how to use the Hobie Cat and even guided us where to go since he was on our boat over while we headed into town! Thank you Leron! He even informed us of all the tours that the hotel has to offer, so we can't wait to head back here on our next trip to Belize!! Even all the bar/restaurant staff were so kind and caring! We had a wonderful dinner there our first night, and our waiter was so helpful (sorry we can't remember your name, Ibrahim I think!). Thank you to everyone for the amazing service!!

Came here for a wedding, and shared a 3 bedroomed condo with family,and although getting to the resort was a bit of a faff, the resort itself was worth it. Great accommodation, lovely staff, great scenery. The staff are attentive without being pushy, and the place feels very relaxed. Use of the kayaks is free is you don't fancy just lazing under a palm tree! Our evening meal in the restaurant was gorgeous though a bit pricey, lunch and breakfast was good value though.
My only slight criticism would be the lack of a mirror in the 2 bedrooms, and for a resort of this calibre I would have expected bath robes. The master suite did have a mirror, robes and a hairdryer.

This was our fifth trip to Belize, fourth to Ambergris Caye. We had previously stayed at Captain Morgan's (twice, once for our wedding), Portofino (honeymoon), and Capricorn. Las Terrazas was the best place we have stayed in Belize, and one of the best places we've ever stayed, period. The resort itself is beautiful, with a fabulous pool that is maintained to perfection daily. We had the "best room in the house" according to the staff, room 217. We had three balconies in the two bedroom apartment-type accommodation, including a "rooftop" style balcony overlooking the ocean. The room had all of the luxuries of home, while still maintaining its Belizean style.
The staff was extremely accommodating. Whenever we asked for something, it was delivered to us either in our room or at the pool within minutes.
The food at "O" was very good. Yes, the prices are not cheap, but for the convenience and quality, I think they were in line with the rest of the places north of town.
We would definitely return.

I took a group of 26 people to the Las Terrazas in February of 2014. It was a sales incentive trip so it was a varied group of employees all with different interests and backgrounds. Las Terrazas met everyone's expectations and then some! The rooms were unbelievably big, clean and comfortable. The resort is not that big so all of the rooms felt like they were basically beachfront. The food was great, the atmosphere was wonderful and the staff was incredible. I have to say the best feature of the hotel was working with their management and staff to plan and execute the trip. They helped me to think of all sorts of details that I wouldn't have otherwise thought of and were extremely helpful. Once we were there they helped us with everything we needed ahead of time and anticipated what I needed help with. They kept our hospitality suite stocked perfectly. Because it's not a huge resort, it doesn't have the "big resort" feel so if you want to be anonymous on a work trip this is probably not the best place to go. We are a group that is all pretty friendly so it was perfect for us. It is not the closest to town but we did have fun renting a golf cart and taking a bumpy ride into town one afternoon. There is also a dive shop right there at the end of the dock so that was great for the divers in our group. Would highly recommend the resort!
