“Good self catering hotel on the beachfront”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Hotel was not luxury, but clean and cosy. Staff were friendly. Free Wi Fi and a lot of kitchen amenities like microwave, coffee maker, cooker etc. AC and fans worked well. You can walk straight from your room to the sea front in under 2mins. I would have given the a hotel slightly higher overall rating if there was a tv in each room. However, you can pay for a tv to be brought into your room at an extra charge. I would return.

I have stayed here twice. This hotel has the best location on the island. You are within walking distance of everything. The staff is top notch and the views just fantastic. If you want to slow down for a few days I recomend this hotel.

Room Tip: all rooms have a full kitchen however I prefer the Owners suite.

Blue Tang was a wonderful and relaxing place to be. They had a small outdoor pool; a continental breakfast included in the stay had a very nice selection of food. There are tables and chairs poolside to either enjoy your meal out-of-doors or in your suite. The staff were very nice and accommodating, and replenished food until the cut-off hour. The Cab service assigned to the hotel demonstrated professionalism, courtesy and great customer service.... However, during my stay there were two incidences, which may have been avoided if there were better security. These two incidences, one which required filing a police report may have been a 'one-off'. Although the apartments, the staff and the location were great - I would especially advise women traveling alone or with a small group to ask the management at Blue Tang about security.

Room Tip: The rooms come with curtains that do not always fully cover the width of the windows so I would adv...

Thank you for sharing your positive comments about Blue Tang Inn and for expressing your concerns. Safety and our guest comfort is an important issue for us. We have staff on propery 24 hours a day. Our night watchman is monitoring the hotel from 8pm-7am every night. If our guests have any concerns he should be made aware and will assist. He is in radio contact with 2 other watchman at nearby hotels if any immediate assistance is needed.
Blue Tang Inn is a safe place to stay. I've stayed alone there as a single woman and with my family for visits the last 12 years and always feel comfortable. I do advise the staff of when I'm coming and going, and they genuinely take care.

We've stayed here twice and always enjoy our stay. Fanny and Allan are great! The views from the 3rd floor are incredible. I can't imagine anyone being dissatisfied if they choose to stay here. Take one night and do their sunset sail on the Sirena Azul.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are great!

We just returned from 12 days at the Blue Tang Inn. We had a great time there! The location is perfect, it is close to town, near Wet Willy's dock for interest and a very very short walk to dive and recreational docks as well. It is very close to the ferry drop if you come in from Belize City by ferry instead of by air, and has a perfect spread of beach right outside your door. Allen (in the office) is very accomodating and personal. Victor and Eric are always there to assist and even helped us choke start our puttering golf cart rental a few times... Folks there are most accomodating, provide a great continental breakfast every morning, keep the grounds immaculate and they have an open air deck at the top that provides a 360 view of the ocean and lagoon. Would definitely return to Blue Tang, and greatly enjoyed our time there.

Our home away from home...always a perfect vacation even after 15+ yrs coming back. Fanny and Allan are always so accommodating - booking bone fishing and beach barbeque excursions, even advertised an "0" birthday celebration during our stay in March. Blanca, Amelia and Carmen keep the rooms sparkling and brought flowers to welcome us back. Carmen makes the best fryjacks and pancakes for breakfast!! The grounds/pool/beach are kept up beautifully. The location is the best...restaurants, live music, dive shops, spas are within walking distance. We love the Blue Tang Inn and Ambergris Caye!!

My wifeand I found Blue Tang Inn by reading the excellent reviews on tripadvisor. They were so good that we were skeptical, at first. We called Kristin, who gave us a very good feeling about the hotel and its staff, so we booked a week there in July. The hotel is beautifully maintained by a friendly and helpful staff. You can't say enough about the location. It is an easy walk to everything in San Pedro. Excellent restaurants are minutes away, and there are plenty of them. The rooms are essentially suites, with king-sized beds and full kitchens. They are kept immaculately clean. Every morning breakfast is served out by the pool. There is good coffee, juice, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, and either waffles or pancakes. You can't beat it. We enjoyed a snorkling trip out to the reef on the hotel's sailboat. I recommend the snorkeling trip. We had a bit of rain early in our stay, and the hotel provided umbrellas for the guests. In a nutshell, we would return to Blue Tang Inn tomorrow if we could.

Hi Norman,
Thank you for the great feedback regarding your stay at Blue Tang Inn! Your experience highlighted the many things we love about Blue Tang Inn, as well! We love our staff and all they do for our guests! Our guests develop wonderful relationships with our staff and feel like family as they return year after year. Glad to hear you enjoyed the location and easy proximity to many wonderful restaurants in San Pedro. And the Sirena Azul is always a highlight for snorkeling or a sunset sail.
Thanks for the post! We appreciate it.
