We stayed here for 8 nights in June and had a great time. We stayed in a beach front, air conditioned cabin, and were very happy with it. The room itself was great with a view that absolutely can't be beat, and the bathroom, while a little small, was always clean and was everything we needed. My favorite part of this hotel was the location. I MUCH prefer this to a large resort outside of the town. We were right in the middle of everything and could walk all the way down to the end of the peninsula and back. Bars, restaurants, shops, our tour company, ice cream, kayaking, and pretty much everything else was within a 5 minute walk. I loved that we felt like part of the town (as much as you can when you're a tourist, at least). I know people have had trouble with noise from Tipsy Tuna, but we didn't have any issues at all. We were running air conditioning most nights, but it really wasn't an issue for us. For a couple days of our trip, there was a pretty bad sea grass problem on the beach that was in no way the hotel's fault. We got to Belize right after a big storm, and the waves were still bringing in lots of debris. The hotel staff did clean the beach every morning, but they really couldn't control the actual grass in the water. Other days it was perfectly beautiful! There were some solicitors on the beach that came up to sell us items (which was expected), but if we firmly told them we weren't interested then it didn't become a problem. And again, that was no problem at all considering the benefits we got from staying in the town.
We would definitely stay here again, you really can't beat the price, location and nice rooms!
