“Paradise”
Reviewed 24 July 2009

Actually, there is not much to add to the other reviews. Everything was just perfect during our stay! The beachfront cabanas were beautiful and very clean. When we opened the door to our front porch in the morning it felt as you could jump into the sea right from the bed. The food was great, the prizes reasonable and the owners and staff always friendly and helpful.
You should not miss the snorkeling trips with Steven. We went to Hol Chan and Mexico Rocks and it was great! What we also appreciated, was that the trips could be set up very spontaneously and were quite affordable. We really enjoyed our stay there and will definitely come back! I promise you will not be disappointed!

During our recent trip to San Pedro we rented a place in town. Without having ever been to San Pedro before we didn't know what to expect. We found out that town was so busy and not what we were looking for in our vacation. Through a short boat ride and a bike ride we came across Ak'bol. We fell in love. Kirstin opened up her pool to us to relax and we enjoyed the bar on the beach as well as some amazing food. We spent two afternoons there wishing that was where we were staying. When we go back we will certainly be staying there with Kirstin and Milio and their children so we can really enjoy all the place has to offer.
Thanks for allowing us to take part in your paradise!

This is a really great place to stay if you are looking for an authentic Belizean experience. The resort is very laid back and one with nature. I would definitely stay there again. Kirsten and Millo were both very welcoming and were very accommodate when anything asked of them. Since the resort is located on the northern side it is much more secluded and gives you a beautiful view of the Carribean. The bar and food they had at the resort were very good and reasonably priced. I am very satisfied with my stay and look forward to coming back.

If you are looking for a relaxing beautiful resort on the shores near San Pedro this is it. With a great poolside bar and a fun and friendly staff Steven and Bario (aka Johnny) Kirsten and Millo have brought their dream to life. They are happy to share their resort with you and go above and beyond to make your stay full of fantastic memories. Everything was clean, and comfortable. Being away from whirring airconditioners (not needed with the seabreeze passing through the cabanas) and noise of TV's, was a nice break from the trappings of busy lifes we were looking to escape. The energy of the resort was purely positive and invigorating. PS the option of vegatarian meals was awsome.

Hello!
I would like to reserve Cabanas # 1, 2, & 3 for the next ten years and will send my credit card information in another e-mail.

OH HOW WE MISS YOU!!!!!!! thanks to All Of You for the ABSOLUTE BEST VACATION ever!

kirsten and melio you have truly created a bit of Heaven on earth there at ak'bol!! the natural beauty of the land, the exquisite creativity of the cabanas (and the barracks), the lovely touches like the hammocks, the palm tree swing, the yoga pier, are just perfection. the food was amazing. each and every one of your help was so endearing and--well, helpful. so willing to do anything to make things there great and easy and special for clare and i (and for all your guests, as far as i could see). there is an energetic harmony that fills the air there---it's easy to see that you put your hearts, your artistry and your high standards into making ak'bol a truly wonderful special place.

thank you for everything, from both clare and me----we wish you the best and we would love to come back sooner than i think will be possible! i have started an akbol savings account for anna and i, hopefully for the same time next year.

you will always remain in our hearts as much more than innkeepers!
much love,
leslie and clare

We had a wonderful time staying with Kirsten and Milio at the Ak'bol. They are both lovely and very accommodating. The location is amazing, right on the water. If you are looking for no frills, relaxation, yoga, great breakfasts and lunches...this is your place. Everyone that works at the Ak'bol is extremely friendly too. The only recommendation I have is to add padding to the beach chairs and provide beach/pool towels. The bar has great food, it's a shame they are not open for dinner. When you stay north of the cut, you are limited with restaurant options but town is only a short bike ride away or a water taxi ride ($8 one-way) Everything else was magic!

Akbol is one of the most unique and relaxing places I've ever stayed. The chic private cabanas have been built with attention to every detail. The beach side cafe is delicious with the best breakfast on the island. We did yoga every morning and would either relax by the pool or snorkel in the afternoon. Mileo and Kirsten, the owners, made us feel instantly at home and comfortable, but were never intrusive. Any activity you might want to do can be set up right at the resort. We had to force ourselves to leave the resort to go explore the rest of the island. If you are looking for an unpretentious and authentic Belize experience, I could not recommend Akbol high enough. Paradise found.
