“Wasn't a fan”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Stayed here two nights. Can't figure out what people like about it so much. It is old and run down, the beach isn't clean, the whole hotel smells AWFUL (including inside our room), and there are little bugs all over the floor in our room. Not to mention the doors only have a simple lock, no dead bolt. As two females, didn't make us feel particularly safe. Oh and hardest bed I've ever slept on.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

I just finished writing a review for my husband and my last vacation when I realized I had never written one for Corona del Mar - our vacation last summer. The beauty in this hotel/motel does not lie in it's cosmetics, but rather in the staff, location, and dock that allows you to float around with all the sea life. My husband, along with my parents, visited Corona del Mar in June 2013. Upon arrival, we were told they could not find our reservations but put us in a room none the less. I'm assuming they thought we hadn't paid because we were put in possibly the worst room ever, ha! It really is laughable now. Needless to say, I think they found our reservation because we were eventually put into a much more accommodating room on the north side of the hotel. My parents had a great room on the third floor facing the pool - I think they might have won. Anyway, for the price there isn't much to complain about. You get what you pay for. As I said earlier, what made this so special was not the rooms. Who goes to Belize to sit in their room anyway? We took our own floaties and Tervis tumblers (which were filled with the punch) and floated in the ocean, off the dock. The resort is also within walking distance of some great restaurants and if you want to explore the office will help you rent a golf cart - which you should absolutely do.

Overall, we will probably return here sometime in the near future. It is not a 5 star resort but I would rather be on a catamaran, going snorkeling, or floating around with a drink in my hand anyway.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor, either facing the pool or beach.

We spent 4 days in Corona del Mar for easter. The hotel is old and a littel run down. Some paint here and there would not be a bad idea. The people, like in most of Belize, are extremely nice and help ful. The beach is just at your doorstep which makes the experience very special. Overall a good experience. It is a little more expensive than what you would pay for a hotel in these conditions.

Poor Internet, shabby rundown. Not worth the price. The staff is great, restaurant menu needs upgrade. Good thing there are better restaurants nearby. I would not recommend this hotel. Nice beach, lots of water action.

The staff at Corona del Mar make all the difference in the world. They are like family to us in all ways. If you need something special, they will find a way to get it for you. When you add in free continental breakfast and free rum punch all day, the cost is very affordable. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: spend a little extra money and get the sea side rooms. They are worth it.

We really enjoyed staying here. The bar tender were very friendly and kept things exciting. Our rooms were very clean and laying on the beach was great. Bed were very hard. The breakfast was good. The location was close to everything we wanted. Thanks

Room Tip: We had the suite they were great with a view with balcony.

This is just your older hotel, no real frills, just basics. It's helpful if you are in good shape, because there is no elevator. On the plus side the staff are pleasant and helpful, and will help you get your luggage to your room. Where you will find a bottle of water in the frig. Breakfast as previously noted is very simple , juice, coffee, fruit and toast. The hotel is conveniently located for an easy walk almost anywhere. The beach is more of a sand strip and it is a bay not an ocean. Yet it is clear water, or would be if people were not burying beer bottles in the shell sand. If you want to get sun there are plenty of tanning lounges everywhere. The restaurant is more of a bar that serves food than a restaurant. That "beach" is prone to sink holes, so be aware you might suddenly be in a hole down to you knees.

Room Tip: Probably happier on the ground level away from the bar area. Unless you have no problem walking up 2...
