Stayed for one night before returning home to London. We booked here because we didn't want to stay in the centre of Belize City and thought it'd be safer and nicer in the suburbs, which is essentially what you get for your money. It was easy to get a taxi here from the centre and it cost BZ$15 for a 15 minute ride. The room itself was nicely decorated with a bath and shower, along with a/c, king sized bed and air con.

On arrival we were welcomed by Pauline who is one of the hostesses employed by the owner. She offered us juice and spent some time explaining different places to eat in the area, along with menus. She was very attentive and friendly, plus cooked a good breakfast the following day.

I was not a fan of Belize city. Since it has the international airport we figured after a long flight we would stay one night before heading out to better locations. Thank goodness for Villa Boscardi. Loved it! Clean, friendly, (VERY friendly) and quiet. A great place to stay! If you are in Belize city get out of the main center and get to Villa Boscardi. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend.

Villa Boscardi, May1st, 2014… Belize City

we stayed at "Villa Boscardi" on May 1, 2014 for one night on our way to visit the Mayan Ruins "Xunantunch". Ms. Stephanie welcomed us and gave us a wet washcloth, so we were able to clean our face / hands upon arrival, nice touch. We also received a "Welcome Drink". We were accommodated in Bungalow # 5 which are very comfortable accommodations and very clean. This room includes air conditioning, private bath, fan, desk, hair-drier, cable TV, wireless internet, telephone. We also met the owner Mrs.Francoise Lays and I can say that both ladies assisted us in finding a restaurant & Super Market, they really go the extra mile for their guests. Villa Boscardi is about one block away from the Caribbean Sea. The streets around the Villa are not the very best, there are many pot holes, but it is not the fault of the wonderful management at Villa Boscardi. A local restaurant by the name of "Admiral Bay" is just one block away and located directly by the sea, unfortunately it was closed during our visit, because of a holiday. The restaurant is a rustic place, nothing fancy( an open air Food Shack ), the view to the sea is fantastic and so is the breeze. They serve a number of grilled items such as fresh fish, pork & chicken. Luckily the "Friendship Restaurant" operated by Chinese people, just a couple of blocks away from Villa Boscardi was open. Again, nothing fancy, but the food is good , they also offer a huge selection of dishes cooked to perfection by the Chinese crew. The following morning Ms. Stephanie prepared a hot breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, fruits, coffee and fresh juice, which was very well prepared. Francoise, joined us and we chatted and she gave us some hints about BELIZE. All we can say is, that the two Ladies were very much concerned about the well being of their guests. We can recommend "Villa Boscardi" very highly to our fellow travelers and you too will enjoy the warm hospitality we received. Not too worry security is very good here. ( see pictures below )

Room Tip: accommodations in Bungalow No. 5 are superb

Thank you for your fine encouragements.
We have called for the pot holes on the street but the government has not enough money to rebuild the street! But hopefully they have promised they would come and patch them! They are doing a brand new road on the Sea Shore Drive and it will improve the area quite a bit.
We do hope to have the pleasure to see you again in Belize.
All the best to both of you. Francoise.

I was a little disappointed when I arrived at the Hotel, because it was very small and looked more like a house. However I stayed there on a long business trip for 13 nights and my room was perfectly adequate and clean and the staff were lovely and the owner is very helpful and kind!
The only downside was they do not have a restaurant and food delivery is mostly from the local Chinese and the wi-fi service is temperamental. There is a great restaurant within 5 minutes walk along the seafront which has a good selection of food though and transportation is easily accessible. So all in all it is good value for money and I compared to the other hotels that I saw when I was there, this is the best choice and location in the price range in Belize city for sure!.

Room Tip: The villa's at the back are better for longer stays where you have gardens to sit out.

Thank you for your review.
We did fix, the problem of the internet, lately.
For deliveries, we do have the Chinese and the peppers pizza place that deliver. We do have 6 restaurants at walking distance from the B&B with Belizean, Catalonian (Spain), Lebanese, International and surely Chinese. We do have a super market 10 minutes walk from the B&B where you can buy food as well.
We are happy you have enjoyed our facilities and hope to host you on your next visit to Belize.
Best Regards. Francoise.

Absolutely loved it...I stayed there during the September celebrations and must say it was far more than I expected for such an affordable rate. The only fault I could find was the location of the hotel. It was not centrally located but if you have rental or taxi, that is a small inconvenience..

We stayed only one night upon arriving in Belize City. It is an excellent choice for your first or last nights in the country, since the airport is a short drive away. As we couldn't get our rental car until the next day this was convenient. We also had help from the owner who asked our rental car company to pick us up the next day. Breakfast was very good and the rooms were comfy. I didn't really expect to be watching TV while in Belize but found we did just that - some hockey, soccer, and part of a movie! We also used the public computer on the main floor the next day.
