I was here by myself in early April and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Staff were super friendly and went above and beyond. The food as part of the all inclusive was average, but I always found something nice and healthy to eat. The food at the main restaurant was absolutely delicious, overpriced, yes .... I had the catch of the day a couple of times and it was to die for!
Rooms were nice and clean. I read some of the other reviews, but i had no issues whatsoever.
One of the main reasons I picked this resort was their diving school and the fact i could organize trips right through the front desk. Exploring was one of the man reasons I chose Belize. But this was a very slow week for the. And they couldn't get big enough groups to organize trips. I was very disappointed, but have to say the staff went above and beyond to make my trips possible ... Including organizing a snorkeling trip for just two ppl when they need at 4 four ... I ended up with my personal guide :) and when they couldn't get enough ppl in the hotel to do the trips, they reached out to local diving schools, so i ended up doing all my trips :)
One negative is the beach .... I am total beach bum and love the seawater .... And while the beach is super clean, there is a freshwater stream close by ... So the water isn't the crystal clear blue but more green and full of seaweed ... When i was at the resort i spent most of my time at the pool, which was fabulous!
