“Great place to stay - "happy hotel"”
Reviewed 19 March 2011

My husband and I came here to relax for a few days after sight seeing in the Cahal Pech area. We were extremely happy with our stay and have already recommended Blue Tang to a family member who is planning a trip to Belize. I had originally booked a garden apartment but they upgraded us for free to a room overlooking the ocean. The rooms are well decorated, spacious, comfortable, and incredibly clean. The hotel grounds/lobby are bright and happy. Our balcony had a great view and a hammock. Each room has a kitchenette equipped with pots/pans/dishes/knives and there 2 supermarkets within a 3-5 minute walk of the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have kayaks and scuba gear should you need it. It was a very relaxing vacation and we plan on coming back.

This hotel is well priced in a good location on the island. It is small which is nice - easy to navigate and the staff is very accommodating. We would (and have) definitely stay here again! Also very close to good dive shop as part of the package.

If you are looking for quaint, personal, friendly staff, clean and completely affordable and charming...this is your place. After staying at numerous places on the island, this is my favorite. Its rooms are spacious, colorful, newly remodeled and with fully equipted kitchens you can't go wrong.
The have lovely grounds with lots of flowers right on the beach. Hammocks and a cozy pool as well. The morning breakfast buffet was so fresh and yummy, they even made fresh waffles! Anything we needed and they were there for us! I go to the island at least 3 times a year and I can say I will not be staying anywhere eles. It feels so private but is walking distance to town and all there is to do. Not to mention the best dive shop right across the sand. (Chuck and Robbies! Enjoy!
P.S. They even picked us up at the airport!

The Blue Tang Inn is the best place to stay in San Pedro. The staff are the best and very helpful in arranging local excursions and making reservations for local restaurants, etc. It is right on the beach on the north edge of town, which makes for very convenient walking to everywhere. Wet Willy's bar is on the dock out front if you don't want to walk more than 100 yards for a good drink. We highly recommend sailing (and snorkeling) on the Sirena Azul. The crew was very accommodating to ensure we had the best experience.

The service was great, and the staff was very accommodating. Staying as a large family group of 22 was a great experience and worked out very well. Our room sizes were larger then any of expected, especially due to the fact that we took about 6 different rooms. The amenities were great and worked well, so a long stay would be very comfortable. The Views were spectacular and if weather prevails, you should wake up early and see the sunrise. The area was not too bad and most of the locals seem friendly. All in all I defiantly plan to go back.

This is the second time we stayed at The Blue Tang Inn and it's my favorite place to stay in San Pedro! The rooms are spacious and incredibly well kept. The people that work at the Blue Tang are friendly, hard working and really looking out for you. Blue Tang has a sweet roof top deck too and the main level has a pool surrounded by tropical flora and palm trees. Every morning, they have everything laid out for a light breakfast. Great Central location too, close to everything, 2 grocery stores right up the street and they have a roof top deck too!
