“Excellent, Relaxing Stay”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Hamanasi was not only a great place to relax, but also for excursions and activities. The resort is very comfortable and the staff is awesome. There is a constant cool breeze off the water and relaxing at the pool was either a great way to start the day, or end it. Edgar was quick to bring a coctail by the pool. The restaurant is exceptional. The front desk staff was truly caring. A member in our party became a little ill and they were very attentive and concerned. They even checked on him when the rest of the party was away on an excursion. This is a family-friendly place but also a great get away for couples. There were several there on honeymoons or anniversaries. Can't say enough good things about my experience here. If you are looking for a resort on the mainland, and not on San Pedro, go here and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: There are also "treehouse" rooms that are really neat and nestled in and among the trees a...

We stayed at Hamanasi June 16-23 for our honeymoon and Hamanasi was more than my husband and I could have ever asked for. Our intension was a honeymoon full of adventure and that's what we got. Here are a couple of areas that most people have questions about.

RESORT: Secluded. Clean. Romantic. We went one of the first weeks of low season and did not have a problem at all with an excess of bugs or with sand fleas. The breeze from the ocean helped a lot I would imagine. The beach hammocks were our relaxation time in the evenings after a long day of adventures, happy hour and a three course dinner.

STAFF: Personable and excited to work at Hamanasi. All of the staff memorize your names and make you feel like a part of a family. Always eager to help and individually go around to each couple to ask about your meal reservation times and upcoming adventures to make sure that everything is going as planned and is up to your satisfaction. Prior to our trip, we experienced great customer service and communication via phone and email.

ROOMS: We stayed in a tree house. PERFECT for vacationing couples. Hanamasi cleans your room twice a day as well as turn your bed down for you at night. Fresh water is available for you in your room and you will never run out. The staff comes in to clean your room at meal times or when you are on adventures so that you are not disturbed. Travel size handmade soaps, lotion, shampoo and conditioner are available in the rooms. A/C worked like a charm. Very pleasant and comfortable.

ADVENTURES (and other activities): We were there for a week, went on all 5 adventures included in the package, did an extra adventure and were still able to have a rest day before we left. We did kayaking and snoreling in one day, cave/jungle adventure, zipline, Mayflower hike & Mayan history tour. The Tour guides are extremely knowledgeable, Alfredo was our favorite. He had a true passion for his culture and brings the area to life. THINGS WE WERE GLAD WE BROUGHT - pair of pants and long sleeve shirt for crawling around in the cave - sunscreen -bugspray - shoes that are good in land and water - nice clothes for the evening, sports clothes during the day.

BAR: Hamanasi has the #1 bartender in Belize, Mark. If you ask him, or sometimes if he notices that you are not getting involved with the bar scene he will put a bar game/puzzle in front of you to get you involved, get you meeting other couples/families and to have fun. Happy hour is from 4-6 every day, don't miss it! Weekly they have performances whether drums/singing/dancing from the locals in the village for a splash of Belize culture. One night I was pulled into dance with an adorable little girl from the village and had a blast.

FOOD: Delicious! Everything is made fresh and we did not try anything that we did not absolutely love. Breakfast is continental with yogurt, tropical fruit, bread, jams, butter, cheeses, various breakfast eggs and meats, tea, coffee, etc. Hamanasi provides a specific lunch menu. The menu for dinner changes daily alongside specials and chef specials.

Overall, loved our time there and wouldn't think twice about returning in the future for anniversaries or family vacations. :)

Room Tip: A treehouse is the way to go! Private rooms, no close neighbors, still close to resort, wake up to t...

We had such an amazing experience at Hamanasi throughout our entire stay. From the beginning planning stages the staff was so responsive and easy to communicate with. Planning a wedding has never been less stressful for a bride I guarantee! Once we arrived we were treated with such hospitality. The property is gorgeous and maintained throughout the day. The turn down service was an elegant touch each evening. We ate at the restaurant for every meal and we were never disappointed. The chef's specials and service were amazing each night. We went on four different excursions and the guides were so informative and took great care to make the experiences special. Snorkeling and the Mayan Ruins were our favorites but the Cockscomb Waterfall Hike was gorgeous as well. The wedding went perfectly and the photographs are beautiful. I just wish I could feel that Carribean breeze again!! I hope to be able to go back again! Everyone at the resort had a great time and I know you will too!!

Room Tip: The Honeymoon Suite is the way to go even for an anniversary! The bed was beautiful and the sitting...

RESORT - well maintained and small (can only accommodate about 100 people at a time), if you do not have a vehicle you are somewhat confined, but we had a car and enjoyed getting around
ROOM - we stayed in the standard tree house, which was plenty room for a family of 4, nice and luxurious
TOURS - they offer them all, ATM caves is a must
STAFF - super friendly and will go out their way to help
FOOD - a bit pricey but great quality

if you don’t like the jungle experience and the outdoors, stay home
NO WiFi in room, NO TV anywhere - this is an eco resort so put the iPad down and enjoy nature

We had the pleasure of visiting Hamanasi June 14-21 and had a wonderful visit. We chose Hamanasi with the intent of a Family Dive Vacation as all 4 of us are divers. (our boys are 13 and 16) We booked our stay in a deluxe Beach Front unit which gave the boys a separate room. The Whole Family was very pleased with our stay. The room was very nice, very clean with good A/C, comfortable beds and ample supplies. There was a Hammock on the Deck and we were close enough to hear the ocean waves (Unit 12). The entire staff was amazing. Everybody made you feel welcome, was very pleasant and had a smile. The Adventure center was well organized and ran like clockwork. Terrell would always check in to make sure diving was on our plan and kept us well informed of the plan (Thanks Terrell). Jamie was also excellent at hooking us up with some of the extra activities we wanted to experience on land and took time to visit with us about the area and the people and culture of Belize. (Thanks Jamie) Hamanasi has a top rate Dive operation. They have 3 boats that are used depending on dive destination and # of divers. All are well equipped and comfortable. The Dive Masters and Boat Captains are Excellent ! They were always very helpful and made my entire family feel comfortable. The Dive Masters were ALL outstanding but of special note were Gariff and Martin who both went above and beyond and put in an A+ effort. The Snacks and Off Gassing stops between dives were very nice and dive locations wonderful. (If not diving i would recommend the Zipline and Cave Tubing). The Food at Hamanasi is exceptional ... 5 Star ... and the service to match with menu specials each night. (Thank you Kim and Hill for your great service). The Bar was perfect with snacks and occasional local entertainment which was very nice. Mark makes great drinks (I recommend the Coco Loco) and Kenneth was an absolute pleasure, serving Pool side. (Thank you so much Mark and Kenneth). And Lastly the Office Staff was also very considerate and helpful. As you can tell ... 3 weeks post trip ... by still remembering the many names and smiling faces, they made quite an impression. I would very much recommend Hamanasi for your Belize vacation destination. Thank You So Much Hamanasi !! (The Andersons in #12 ... Eric, Wendy, Derek, Dylan)

Room Tip: #12 was a Lower Beach front Delux on the end, away from the main building. Tree Houses looked nice...

My family and I had the joy of staying at this amazing resort in Belize! It was our first trip to Belize and this resort guaranteed that we will be returning. Everything from the friendly and personable staff to the food, rooms and adventures was perfect! The rooms were immaculate and inviting. The staff knew our names before we got in their van from the Dangriga airport. Our snorkling guides taught us every fish we saw and ensured we were having fun the whole time. Did I mention how fantastic the food was? We were treated like part of the Hamanasi family and that meant the world to us! I tried to not cry when we left but they make you feel so welcome that I couldn't help myself. Ginger the cat helps to make you feel at home too. We will be returning to the Hamanasi!
