“Great Place!”
Reviewed 25 April 2006

We stayed in the Sea Horse Room up on the top floor overlooking the Carribbean Sea, I spent a lot of time swinging in the hammock on the veranda enjoying the cool breeze and fabulous scenery while my husband snoozed in the a/c.
The staff was great, the room was so creative, the hotel amazing with myriads of intricate and artistic detail. One can see that the place was built with much love and creativity. I thot that our room was a great bargain. There were 3 of us and the room was spacious and comfortable for $60.. It was in a great location as well for walking into the nearby town. I found the people of Punta Gorda very kind and friendly. I would go back in an instant!

While on a medical mission trip to Belize, a group of us stayed in Punta Gorda at the Sea Front Inn for a much-needed break after 5 days of grueling clinics.This inn has a lovely water view from the upper level where we ate breakfast each morning and spent time most evenings. We were fortunate in knowing the owner, Larry, and his wife--former missionaries in the Mayan jungles--and were able to adapt to the "easy style" there such as the "honors bar" where guests simply list the drink/s taken. At the end of the stay, these are added to your bill. Larry's son-in-law, Roberto-- a native Belizean--takes groups or individuals on various tours on his boat, The Wild Thing. We were fortunate enough to experience two adventures with him: a trip on the Moho River in the jungle, and a snorkeling day at Snake Island. These were truly wonderful days without another human face seen except those of our group. We saw iguanas, rare birds, dolphins, looked for manatees, and watched Roberto wrestle with a 10 foot boa in a tree--for our benefit, I imagine. If SURVIVOR is your kind of tv show, then you would like these outings(there are several others to chose from all with the reliable Roberto in charge). Our lunches were packed by the Sea Front Inn staff and taken on the boat each day. I cannot say enough about the friendly folks there. The rooms are not luxurious, but certainly adequate with various themes to pick from. I would certainly consider staying there again without hesitation. I would like to see more visitors to Punta Gorda making friends with the owners and getting acquainted with "life at the Sea Front". And by all means, be sure to book a day with Roberto and The Wild Thing. You won't regret it.

The hotel was nice enough, but at about US$60 for a single it was massively over-priced - fair value was about US$30. The problem is that there appears to be no competition in the hotel market in Punta Gorda. There are some not so pleasant looking backpacker places but I could find nothing else in the US$20-50 range. If you have your own car perhaps you can look further afield - there is certainly nothing to do in Punta Gorda - but if you are on public transport and waiting for the boat to Guatemala (or vice versa) depending when/how you get to Punta Gorda you are likely to find yourself spending a night there, or in Puerto Barrios in Guatemala which is a bigger but equally ugly town.
