Caribbean Villas was very comfortable and the staff arranged a couple of excellent excursions for us. There was a pool for those times when you wanted to keep cool in fresh water. It was not too far from town but far enough to be quiet and relaxing and scenic. Good restaurants just a walk down the beach.

Room Tip: Get a room fronting the beach- your own patio for watching the sunset.

We have stayed at Caribbean Villas the past three years when we visit Ambergris Caye and surrounding areas. It is perfectly located - 1 mile south of San Pedro, easy walk or bike ride to go in to town. Very nice beach, excellent water sports access (sailing, sea kayak, kite surfing all available right on the beach). Rooms are perfect for people looking for a good value, good room - not luxury. We are always very active and are only in our room for sleeping and getting ready to go out. The bar is great - lots of locals (local fossils!) and guests mingle there - the Sunday beach beach BBQ is very fun. The staff members that have been there for years are awesome - Leon (at the bar) is great, and the office staff are excellent.

Only down side - there is new ownership and some new staff. There is construction going on to build new rooms and the bird sanctuary was destroyed. We are huge fans of Caribbean Villas and hope the changes will not change the "small, local, barefoot luxury" vibe of the place.

If Eric is working the bar - avoid him. He is rude, incompetent, and seems to cause issues with other members of the team.

We will look to go back next year and see how the changes are unfolding.

Room Tip: beach facing rooms - like #5 are the best.

Thank you for you feedback. We always strive to provide a high level of customer satisfaction and are pleased that you had a good experience overall. We are also very pleased with our staff, and the particular staff member that you had issues with has since moved on, and is no longer working at our Beach Bar. Regarding the hotel expansion, while there will be more rooms available when you next visit, it is our sincere goal to maintain the friendly, laid-back "vibe" of Caribbean Villas Hotel and too continue to provide our guests with the best vacation experience possible while they stay with us.

We stayed at Caribbean Villas for onewhole week. We were very pleased with the accomodations and the staff was cheerful and made us feel right at home. Whatever we wanted, the staff took good care of us. Our condominium was very clean each day. At night we slept very well. This is not a new place but it is well cared for. We would return again,
The staff helped us with making recommendations for dinner and we were not disappointed with their suggestions.
The beach is clean and beautiful, lots palm trees to keep us cool.
All in all, we had a wonderful experience at Caribbean Villas and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a reasonable price with lots of amenities.

Room Tip: We stayed in the one bedroom suite,

Our family of four stayed at the Caribbean Villas for 7 nights in March 2014. We had a wonderful time! The accommodations exceeded our expectations. We were right on the beach with a beautiful view. Snorkeling right off their dock was lots of fun. Excursions left from the dock as well which was very convenient. Easy walking distance to restaurants and bars but far enough for peace and serenity. The staff and new management were wonderful. Tanya, the lovely young woman at the front desk, took good care of us, making all of our reservations for the excursions we went on. She was a great resource. We snorkeled at Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley, our daughter dove the Great Blue Hole, we spent a day fishing and getting getting massages, we visited the Mayan ruins at Altun Ha, the Belize Zoo, and zip lined and cave tubed at Cave Branch Archeological Reserve. We even fit in a sunset cruise on a catamaran which was spectacular! We appreciated having the kitchen in our unit especially since we were so close to fruit and vegetable stands and grocery stores. The small restaurant was great for breakfast and lunch. We enjoyed the bar as well. Sunday Funday barbecue was super! We rode the free bikes up and down the beach. We rented a golf cart to tour the island. We can't wait to return!

Praises to Caribbean Villas for a wonderful vacation. The new owner was there often to oversee the bar renovation, but he made no attempt to visit with guests. No worries, as the staff was very friendly, rooms were clean, grounds were immaculate.

This small 12 room hotel is about a mile from town, and we walked the beach daily to find a new favorite spot to eat. We also bought alcohol at the duty free, local beer at the distributor, and shopped at Marina’s just up the street for a few things to have in our furnished kitchen. The bar closed at 8:00 so if we wanted a nightcap we had to be out and about or make our own and watch the stars.

Tonya at the front desk arranged all our trips. We snorkeled (Ramon’s), scuba’d (Ramon’s), fished (Guererro’s, then took our catch to George’s Kitchen to cook - YUM), and one couple did the Zip Line/Cave Tube (Seaduced). Otherwise we vegged at the small pool or by the water. Not a great beach, which seems typical of Ambergris, but groomed daily to be seaweed free.

If you're looking for a high activity, entertaining resort, Caribbean Villas is not for you. But it's a perfect place to rest and rejuvenate.

Room Tip: We couples occupied all 4 one bedroom suites. Room 8 was the most updated. Room 1 (ours) was in the building closest to the beach. All face the ocean.
