I dont understand how anyone can give a bad review of this hotel or the grounds!
The rooms are actually one bedroom suites with all brand new stainless steel appliances, granit counter tops and marble floors. The bathroom was all marble with double sinks and jacuzzi bath. Our patio had a lounger on it and a beautifull view of pool and gardens.
The staff were wonderful and very friendly.
I am a very picky eater and loved every meal on the pier restaurant, The a la carte was very good as well. They grow all their own veggies, fruits and herbs on the grounds. The garden is pretty impressive.
We only went on one excusion which was a diving trip. The ride out was a bit hairy but that was due to the wind. The dive was very nice but we picked a day that the visibility was not all that great but we met a couple (Hi Jacqueline & Michel) that went on a few more dives than us and visibility had improved.
On our way back from the dive, we had the honor of being visited by dolphins!!!
We are not big on the nightly activities but each night there was a different person playing music at the pier bar. The Christmas even party was Kareoke but we had a blast. The cook is an amazing signer. If you go request a Gun n Roses song by the cook, you will be blown away!
Negative feedback: is that there are alot of no see-ems. Suggestion, go in to the town pharmacie and ask for their natural mixture. It smells like citronella but it worked or my husband. As for me, my purfum seemed to keep them away "Musk by Jovan".
Also this really has nothing to do with the hotel but when booking they should mention the traveling will be longer than they say and also that you will have to pay both leaving taxes, in Roatan and Belize which in all honesty I think is a total poke!
We have traveled to alot of All Inclusives and this one is by far the best we have ever been to.
We will definatly go back & hopefully in a few years we will be living in Belize.
