For our honeymoon, we chose a jungle/island combo in Belize. Due to heavy rains inland, we left for Caye Caulker a day earlier than what we originally planned.
We had already booked Barefoot Beach for our original intended stay, but they were booked the day we arrived early. We walked down the beach a little further and came upon Anchorage Resort. We attempted to negotiate with the front desk person to see if we could receive a discount to stay. There was NO ONE else staying there & I thought if they really needed the business, they might oblige. Unfortunately, that was not the case, she was unwilling to budge and we were so anxious just to get settled somewhere, we took it anyway. I requested a room on the top floor, closest to the ocean.
The first four things we noticed upon entering our room: 1. The views the balcony's was amazing. 2. What is that stench in the room??? 3. Outdated amenities 4. Spacious
The good: The views were fantastic (as you can see from my pics). Sitting on the balcony's was very pleasant. The room had more than enough room to sprawl out.
The bad: The room smelled so bad, it was difficult to tolerate. We plugged in the mini fridge to keep our water cool, opened it up, smelled & viewed it, immediately unplugged it & decided "who needs cool water?" It looked as though everything in the bathroom was very old and in need of a good cleaning. My husband and I wouldn't even take a shower there - it was too gross.
Aside from our balcony view, Anchorage Resort was very lackluster.
