“Everything was perfect”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

SunBreeze hotel was clean, courteous staff, convenient! Loved the hammocks overlooking the ocean & pool area, definite nap time between dives with Dive Connection. My room was very clean every day & kept cool. The adjoining restaurant ~ Blue Water, I think, was fabulous also. I plan to go back to Belize & would stay here again in a heart beat!!

Room Tip: Depends, if you don't mind being upstairs or downstairs, they were all nice & clean.

This hotel is perfect for people who want to be able to walk to everything San Pedro has to offer. We took the water taxi in(san pedro express) and walked to the hotel. Lupita, the front desk staff and Curlin in maintenance were all great!

The rooms were super clean and adequately furnished. I would compare it to your basic Marriott brand hotel. Great quality for the money.

From the hotel we were able to walk to all the restaurants, clubs, marinas and shops. San Pedro has everything from pharmacies to 24 hour convenience stores. The best restaurants were El Fogon (fine dining), Licks Beachside Cafe (breakfast, lunch and dinner) located directly in front of the water taxi dock and Elvi's for breakfast. The restaurant at the hotel was also good.

The hotel is surrounded by tour operators. There is one at every dock. We booked our tours through the hotel and were surprised to find that people booked the same tour directly through the operators for much cheaper...$40.00 less per person. Clearly, we won't book tours through the hotel again and we suggest you dont either.

Matter of fact, unless you are five years old, we do not suggest the "jaguar paw zip line and cave tube". It was HORRIBLE. very very slow zip lines (only five lines) and the tubing was very slow as well. It was like floating in a bath tub for an hour (no joke). Subsequently, we were told that there is a different zip line location thats a much faster/fun pace. If you are looking for a place to take small children (not teens) jaguar paw is perfect. They will enjoy it.

Snorkeling through hol chan and shark/sting ray alley was really nice. Diving would have been much better. We used Searious tours for this.

We also used a local dive master named Danny to take us fishing our last full day. He has his own boat and equiptment. We snorkeled for the "bait" and then fished the catch. After we cleaned the fish we anchored close by san pedro and used the fish bits for chum to attract sharks. Once they came we were able to snorkel with them. You could dive as well. This was private! It was my sister, Danny and myself. It was great!!! You can also have a beach bbq with your catch. Anywho, the point is that you can contact someone like Danny and pay half the price you would pay through a tour operator. Look for Danny on your next trip, he is a certified dive master and great fisherman. You can find him hanging around Sunbreeze Hotel or at the Ruff and Tuff dock...just ask for him,he is black with blonde dreds.

Also, San Pedro is an island. They are on island time. Most of the restaurants are small and have the same type of stove/oven as you have in your home. That means they cook every meal individually and you have to wait for dinner just like you do at home.

If you are rude or impatient, you should go somewhere else. The people are polite and very kind but, they will not put up with rude behavior.

Another tip, san pedro is packed with docks and marina's. The docks and marinas are located on the beach. You will need to swim in between the marinas. It is perfectly safe. We picked a wide location over by the kiddie park in the center of town. It is towards the northside of san pedro past the water taxi station. We encountered HUGE sting rays, puffer fish, lion fish and a dead barracuta in this area. It was amazing! If you want to see these things, find a spot close to where the fisherman clean their catch. You will see them on the docks.

The staff is very helpful and polite
The bed is simply great
The shower it's not the best, but for an island and the purpose of the trip it was OK+.
The location is just perfect... by the airport, but for some reason we do not hear airplane noise (I guess the wind)
The scuba shop right there in front of the hotel, was one of the best we have used so far.
The food in the restaurant was good... and I say that just because there are great restaurants in the city very close to the hotel that are simply great.
Overall I did not think that the prices were too bad, although a bit higher if you compare to some other places like Mexico. Just try to go to the locals instead of the bigger restaurants and hotels and you get great prices with outstanding quality... not fancy, I mean, but delicious!
We are most definitively returning and even considering a family reunion on Christmas.

This is a great hotel choice if you care about location and being close to everything! It was clean, spacious and a good value for the money. Keep in mind this is not a 5 star resort. It is a nice, clean, well maintained resort with a great, convenient location! We didn't eat in their restaurant, so can't give a review on that. We checked their prices, and decided we preferred to eat in the more local traditional spots in town. We could not hear the planes, even though the airport is across the street. The only complaint we had during our stay was about the front desk. We asked them for assistance several times, and they were completely un-helpful. Once was for directions to a restaurant, and it required a phone call on their part that they wanted to charge to our room. Other than that, it was a great experience. We would definitely consider staying there again.

We absolutely loved our week long stay at the Sunbreeze. The bar and restauaunt area were great. The staff was very helpful. We never had to wait for anything we requested. The close proximity to the airport was a huge plus. It was within walking distance of all the action San Pedro town has to offer. Another plus was the fact that the front desk would call around and set up our excursions while we sat by the pool relaxing. We will definitely return!

I've been staying at the Sunbreeze Hotel for the past week. Checking out today. It starts with being directly across from the san pedro airport. Literally a several minute walk to the hotel. From the moment we arrived, until departure day, the staff was kind, courteous, friendly, and always smiling. I came here to dive and snorkel and having the dive shop right on our beach was oh so convenient. The Blue Water Grill and bar is right next to the pool and you can charge to your room which was very convenient. I slept very well and so did my wife. The beds are very comfortable. We stayed in a deluxe suite #223 on the second floor. Safety is always a concern when I travel out of the states and there was no perceived safety issues here. I simply loved it. You can book excursions directly from the hotel front desk. You can walk everywhere you would need to go on the island. No golf cart needed at all. What else nice can I say about this hotel..... It was just simply perfect from check in to check out. If you have a concern, they will fix it right away!
They sweep and mop the hallways and keep this property in ship shape every single day. They smile when they are doing it.

Room Tip: Pick an upstairs room. You will have a view of the courtyard which is nice. Downstairs also, but I...
