Value
Mayan Princess Hotel is located on the finest beach in San Pedro, Belize - as a result all rooms afford panoramic ocean views from their very own private balcony. No other hotel on Ambergris Caye offers quite the same atmosphere or friendly service. Rooms are furnished with a wide range of practical amenities, and all include a well equipped kitchenette. We offer many complimentary hotel services as well including WiFi, use of sun loungers, and a private dock for use by our guests. We are also less than 100 ft away from both of Ambergris Caye's water taxi services. We take pride in the value that we offer to guests, and in addition to great rates, all children under 12 stay for free. Numerous activities and tours such as scuba diving, snorkeling, cultural and jungle tours can also be arranged through Mayan Princess Hotel. Our staff are here to help make your Belize vacation as relaxing (or as exciting) as you desire. If diving is part of your vacation plans, we are conveniently located steps away from Amigos Del Mar dive center, located on the Dock right across from the Hotel. Enjoy the best of both worlds - stay with Mayan Princess Hotel, dive with Amigos Del Mar! The many dive sites dotted around Ambergris Caye are renowned for offering some of the best diving in the Caribbean. The incredible Blue Hole is also a popular option with our diving guests. The nearby Belize Barrier Reef harbors over 500 species of exotic fish and a whole host of other marine wildlife, including some of the world's most impressive corals. We look forward to welcoming you to Mayan Princess Hotel and Ambergris Caye!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The room was clean, nicely furnished, had all the kitchen amenities I needed (including bottled water), was quiet and cool. It is located next to the dive shop I used and near several groceries and excellent restaurants. The staff was probably the best part, though. Everyone was very nice with smiles and greetings and I felt like they wanted my stay to be comfortable. They arranged my diving and COVID test for return to the US and provided towels and a hammock for the balcony. I felt safe (travelling as a single female). I'd definitely stay there again.

Use caution staying here! Crime is on the increase here in San Pedro! This is our third (and last) time at this hotel, and the first time we’ve had a problem. The hotel opens onto “crime” alley! As for the hotel itself, the location is fine and the day staff is caring and helpful! Need outside security in the alley at night!

fantastic location for san pedro. so easy to do random day trips (snorkeling, a trip back to the mainland to see some mayan ruins) especially bc the front desk books EVERYTHING. the company they work with (tuff e nuff) is comprehensive in service and competitive in price. the staff is always helpful, friendly, and available. i would definitely stay here again.

Frankly we will never come back to San Pedro until the issue with the sargasse is not solved… which could last a century. And they’re many other reasons but one very good point there was the Mayan Princess: perfect location (you can reach everything by foot), beautiful view and fantastic service. Room was perfect and we really enjoyed the kind support of Samantha and Alma. Thanks again and let’s hope the best for you!

We're glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Mayan Princess during your recent trip to San Pedro. Our location and views are popular reasons why people enjoy staying with us. As you experienced, seagrass occasionally accumulates on the shore but is quickly washed away. There’s so much more to see and do in Ambergris Caye – do come back again!

Excellent place to stay, near all the dive shops and literally a stones throw from the water taxi terminal. Clean, comfortable, close to everything. Bed was comfortable,shower was nice. Staff really went out of the way for me when AirBNB stole my money.

My friend and I came to San Pedro for the first time and we were so happy we decided to stay at the Mayan Princess! It’s super close to the ferry.. literally a 2 minute walk. Our room was spectacular with stunning views and a huge balcony! The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was a major bonus! The rooms are big and all face the ocean! They brought us a hammock and I hardly left that thing! Location location location!!! The location couldn’t be beat! Right in the center of town, walking distance to everything! The staff was so sweet, absolutely wonderful and friendly. We rented a golf cart through the hotel and they dropped it off and picked it up for us which was super convenient! Thank you Mayan princess, we will be back!!!

We had a great stay at the Mayan Princess. The location is nice, close to the ferry and downtown and still on the waterfront. The beach is compact with piers on both sides, but the location is quiet and relaxing while still being in the heart of San Pedro. You can walk to most of the centeral town and it's resturants and stores easily. The saff was very helpful booking us tour and dinner reservations. The room was spacious with a nice kitchen that suited us for the little actual cooking we did. We recommend and will stay there again on our next visit to San Pedro

I must say that the staff at this hotel are very nice, they couldn't do more to help us whilst there, they are always friendly and always had a smile and lovely greeting, they also would get right on it if you needed anything from them. We will be back as the rooms were just as described and were well maintained, the view over the ocean was fantastic, you are right in the centre of town but it was still quiet and relaxing to stay there, we also did a lot of diving whilst here and there is a dive school right outside. thank you for a great holiday, and we will see you soon.
