We have been to Ambergris Caye before and have tried a couple of different places to stay. We are kind of particular in that we have to have free WIFI and definitely prefer a television in the bedroom. We also love to have enough room to have people over if we like. We went to Ambergris Caye in March and ended up booking Miramar as a default because several of the places were already booked up. I was nervous after reading some of the reviews but was hoping for the best. Mary was very helpful in getting us booked and answering all my questions.
Miramar is south of town by about 2.5 miles which was okay by us since we wanted to get a good feel for being on the south side. We rented a golf cart knowing that it was too far to walk and after being in town and listening to music, the hours could be late that we would be returning to the condo. We arrived about 3:30pm into the San Pedro Airport and Brittany was there waiting to pick us up. We piled into the van and headed south. When we arrived, they were still cleaning our condo so Brittany sent us over to Mr. Joe's (a small restaurant across the street) and bought us a beer. Soon the condo was ready and we started unpacking. We stayed in Unit 6 which is on the top floor with an incredible view and the condo was beyond beautiful. Very roomy with granite counter tops in the kitchen and stainless steel appliances. The only complaint I had was that the balconies are very small but still big enough for a couple chairs and a small side table. The bedrooms are large and the bathrooms are a nice size as well. There were 3 of us and we had plenty of room to move around. Lots of closet space and a couple of safes to lock your valuables in. The property is very quiet and relaxing and the pool, while small, was big enough! We were provided with minutes to use on the phone in the unit which proved very helpful when our golf cart got a flat! There is also a washer and dryer but you will need to buy your own detergent. The ladies come every other day to clean the condo and wash the sheets and towels and they do a great job!
If you are looking for a party crowd or a property with a bar, this isn't it. We prefer the peace and quiet and when we are looking for more we head into town. You are close enough to everything and Mr. Joe's is now a Tex Mex Restaurant from what I understand and I can't wait to try it. On your way to town you will find plenty of fresh produce and markets and when you come back late at night, there is always security at the beginning of the south end. There is a strong neighborhood association and they take great pride in their part of town.
If you have any questions about this property, please feel free to email me. We are headed back in 2 weeks and guess where we are staying? Yep, Miramar!!!
