“Small price for paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2010

As per our usual MO, we show up with no hotel arrangements and walk the beach to find the best deal. We strolled into the Corona Del Mar and had such a warm and friendly welcome we decided to stay. Ocean front room, great air conditioning, and very clean. The bed is a bit hard but its to be expected in a hotel. VERY friendly staff! They also include free access to the local gym as well as free wifi in the lobby area. I overheard the owner saying he was going to put up more access points to allow the rooms to get on the internet but sitting by the beach, surfing the net is just fine for me!

The staff is very friendly. Made friends with most of the people that stayed at the same time. The units are priced right. If you do go and would like to play a game of horseshoes, talk to Frank. He's not that good but he loves to play!

We spent one night at Corona del Mar and LOVED it! We selected this hotel because of the great reviews and reasonable rates and we were very impressed. Marlemi was WONDERFUL and took care of all our questions prior to booking. She also helped us arrange to get the keys for our condo.

We stayed in the Oceanfront Penthouse. The room was simple, but very clean. We loved the balcony - what an amazing view!

We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and plan to stay here on our next trip to San Pedro.

This was our first visit to Belize. We followed the suggestion of family members who have been visiting Belize for 15 years and always stay at Corona Del Mar. Well....it was everything they said it would be. From the moment we arrived, Marlemi, Carla and Frank made our stay so comfortable, like a 2nd home. After 5 days we felt like we had known them for years and we can't wait to go back. In addition, CDM is in a great location from the dock to the airstrip to downtown, and to George's Kitchen right across the street. Btw - the all day rum punch was excellent too!

This was our first trip to Ambergris Caye, and therefore relied upon the reviews on tripadvisor.

The hotel itself is in a great location; quiet enough for relaxing, yet only a short walk up the beach into town. The grounds are tended to – beach is raked daily. The rooms are clean and there is fresh water in the fridge daily. The breakfast is all you need ~ fresh fruit, toast, eggs, juice and ever flowing coffee. There is rum punch all day long, which is mighty tasty when you are playing horse shoes in the afternoon!

Without a doubt, the best part of the Corona Del Mar is the staff. We were greeted by name when Carla checked us in and when Frank took our bags to our room. Every morning when we came down Addy & Marlemi asked about our previous night and our plans for the coming day. When we needed a golf cart Carla arranged for the cart to be dropped at the hotel. When we were looking for evening suggestions they provided helpful ideas about what was going on or where to eat. Frank is an incredible horse shoe player…but we were all having so much fun we didn’t even notice that he was kicking our butts! Had this hotel had different staff I am not sure we would have enjoyed our holiday as much.

We are looking forward to returning to the Corona Del Mar and seeing our friends again. Thanks so much for making our vacation so memorable!

My husband and I spent 10 unforgettable days at the Corona Del Mar. It was our honeymoon (a year and a half after we got married!) and we had THE best time. The staff - Frank, Carla, Marlemi were absolutely the nicest people and made us feel at home the minute we arrived. We enjoyed several games of horseshoes with Frank the champ (and his wife!) and other friends we met during our stay. We were pleased with our rooms, they were very clean. We had a fridge in our room which was great! We enjoyed the continental breakfast each morning and especially the rum punch. After the second night, we wanted to stay permanently. The entire island and people are very welcoming. You can walk from the CDM right along the beach into the San Pedro downtown area. In addition to our fun times relaxing on the beach, drinking and socializing with other CDM guests, fishing, playing horsehoes we had a great day ziplining and cavetubing with SEAduced. Also, if you are looking to snorkel at Hol Chan or Mexico Rocks be sure to hook up with Carlos and Martin. They dock their boat right at the CDM dock. They offer small snorkeling trips (my husband and I went out with them once and another time with another honeymooning couple we met at CDM) instead of a large group of people. In lobster season you HAVE to go with them for their beach BBQ. We went and snorkeled Mexico Rocks, fished by the reef with Carlos while Martin and our other friend from CDM snorkeled for lobster. Later Martin trolled for conch, in the water, behind the boat. My husband and I and our other honeymoon friends relaxed on a private portion of the beach that Carlos and Martin took us to. They served us belekins and rum punch. They served us up a feast of all the seafood we caught which was one of the best meals we ever ate. We savored every bite of fresh conch ceviche, steamed lobster, fish burritos. . YUM!
I highly recommend a trip to Ambergris Caye to stay with the wonderful people at CDM. I have been to many other islands, stayed at various hotels/resorts of all kinds and as a whole have absolutely fallen in love with Ambergris Caye. We will return and we will be staying at CDM. Thank you CDM for a most memorable vacation. We hope to see you all very soon! Mel and Mike

After a long overnight flight, we get to the hotel and they welcome us like long lost family members. Then we are shown our rooms, all the amenities and told to contact Frank if we need anything! Let me tell you Frank will do anything to make your stay more enjoyable, he even delivered my postcards to the Post Office for me!

This hotel is small, and our tour group filled it up, which was great because everyone you saw you knew and could say "hi" to. This made our experience in Belize even better! This hotel would be great for family reunions because of the size and the staff is there to accomodate!

There was a fresh fruit, toast and egg breakfast everyday, with fresh coffee, fruit punch or rum punch. They serve rum punch free all day long, which can be dangerous, but what a bonus!

The staff also assisted us in renting a golf cart for the day and recommended places to eat, dance or listen to music. We will definately go back and stay at the Corona Del Mar and continue our exploration of Belize! Not only would I recommend this hotel, but Belize - barrier reef, Mayan Ruins, great food, tons of culture, bonus eveyone spoke English!
