This was our first trip to Belize, so we were not sure what to expect. We selected the Green Parrot from the internet. One thing that impressed us was the quick response we received. In addition they answered all of our questions about the resort and things to do. So off we went.
We were picked up at the Placencia Airport --that is an experience - by the van that took us to the Resort. The road is a bit surprising --lots of pot holes - but they seem to be in the process of rebuilding it. Also we passed through seign bight village - talk about 3rd world poverty. With that little intrduction to Belize - we were a bit concerned with what we might find. Well were we surprised --what a loverly location. Right on the Caribbean - the open restaurant looks right out on the water. A great dock to sit on and watch for dolphins - we saw the back of one.
Cabanas are clean and nice. We liked the privacy.
Food is good and local produce is used.
Trips - we liked Monkey River and the Mayan Ruins.
Staff --Wow --Ruben knew our name the first day --he is the bar tender.
Leo--there is a gem --just ask him and he will direct you to the best tours and give you a lot of information on the resort and Belize.
We hated to leave -but back to indiana and the winter.
We will put this on our annual list of places to visit. We just hope that it does not change.
