Luke wrote a review Yesterday
The staff at BV Resort were amazing. You can’t ask for better. Top notch service and they went out of their way to make our stay as great as possible. We were able to check into our room extremely early when we thought we would just be dropping off our bags. They were very attentive, friendly, and accommodating. You will still feel like you’re in Belize here versus some of the larger resorts. The grounds are gorgeous and tucked back in to the shore. 10/10 recommend taking the kayak out to the reef, tie it up to a buoy, and have a gorgeous reef to explore/snorkel and clear shallow water to swim in all by yourselves.

We absolutely lucked into this place. We made somewhat last minute reservations to go down to Belize and we are so lucky to have found this place. There are not very many rooms total (only 4 in the main building on the water) and maybe 8-9 overall. It seemed like everyone knew our name from the moment we arrived and were treated like royalty with each interaction. The location is wonderful (just about 2 miles north of the bridge into town) and we walked it once in less than an hour, most of which was walking along the waterfront. San Pedro is pretty hustle and bustle but, this is the picture of serenity. The food was fantastic! Breakfast burritos (sounds simple but, these were 5-star), fryjacks with pineapple jam, ceviche, etc. All of it was simply delicious and not very expensive at all. Belize has to be one of the least expensive places to visit. Also, don't forget about happy hour (both here and along the water at different places). Linda (bartender and caretaker extraordinaire ) made is feel like family. I will definitely book here again.

We want to thank everyone that works there, everyone was so nice and helpful. People who really need a special thank you are Zamir he helped us so much with the booking and even made our plane reservation from Belize City to San Pedro, Boney was also a big help. Linda who took very good care of us for breakfast and was such a joy to talk with first thing in the morning. She made sure my coffee cup never ran out. Pablo, for giving us such good service for dinner and reserving our table. I believe this is probably the best restaurant in San Pedro, people staying in town make the 2,5 mile ride there to eat.I would also like to mention Manner and Bella did a great job in the restaurant . The Kitchen staff Julio and Letty did a great job on preparing all of the food. The one and only house keeping person, Angie cleaned our room every other day and changed our sheets on the bed and made sure we had plenty of clean towels. Aner took us on a sunset cruise for our birthdays celebration. We were pleasantly surprised our appetizers consisted of conch ceviche, bacon wrapped dates with pineapple. To drink we had sangria and plenty of beer. The grounds keepers Alvaro and Alfonso keep the place looking very nice. Last but not lease the owners Mike and Sandy, very nice people and they take good care of the staff working there. Everyone had nothing but, nice things to say about them. We would recommend this place. We will stay there on our next trip to San Pedro. It was so hard to leave. We felt like we were leaving our Belizian Family.

We were greeted at the airport by Bony who took us to the property by golf cart which is the main mode of transport in San Pedro. He pointed out restaurants, supermarkets and different sites on the way. He was profesional, friendly and more than helpful. The place is out of town which adds to the charm. They can arrange for your own cart. The villas are spacious, tastefully decorated, and air conditioned.They have a huge balcony with comfortable sitting. The restaurant serves high quality dishes and the staff is always ready to serve, just ask and they’ll make it happen. The snorkeling tour guided by Aner was a highlight. He was knowledgeable, professional, friendly. Well, just like all the staff. Whatever you do, do not skip Secret Beach, just gorgeous. I recommend this place 100%

We feel so lucky to have found Bella Vista. This small, charming hotel with one of the best restaurants on Ambergris Caye and definitely the absolute best staff anywhere was our home for six nights, and we definitely left our hearts there. The staff became like family. They were so welcoming, warm, and helped with anything we needed. They even mailed postcards for me after we left, because the post office closed ten minutes before I got there to buy stamps. The hotel is 2.5 km from the center of San Pedro. We are really glad that we stayed that far away, because it was quiet. We had access to a golf cart the entire week, which was definitely a necessity and very fun. The grounds of the hotel are lovely and well maintained. The hotel sits on a little lagoon, and we frequently saw iguanas. For me, cleanliness and a comfortable bed are the most important things when staying away from home. Our room was super clean, and the mattress on the bed was more comfortable than ours at home. Every morning, we were treated to a delicious breakfast in their beautiful outside restaurant area with wonderful views of the water. We are still craving the fry jacks. Linda made sure that our days got off to a great start. Their restaurant Aji is not to be missed. We didn't have a bad meal during our entire stay on the island, but the best food we ate was at Aji's. Be sure to try the fish curry - it was incredible! The hotel also offers tours. Honer and his nephew took us on a snorkeling tour one day and a beach BBQ the next. We saw breathtaking sights - colorful corals and fish (juvenile parrot fish, angel fish and many many more), several gorgeous sea turtles, a manatee, several sting rays, spotted eagle rays, nurse sharks and much more. We hadn't planned the beach BBQ day, but snorkeling with Honer and his nephew was so amazing that we went fishing (and snorkeling again) with them the next day. It was so cool to catch some fish, which they then cooked on the beach while we relaxed in the perfectly clear water. We can't wait until we return to Bella Vista and Ambergris Caye. Linda, Zamir, Pablo, Honer, Moner, Boni and everyone else, thank you so much for taking excellent care of us.
