“sweet place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

We've been to Belize twice and both times stayed at caribbean villas.We were there in 09 for our daughter's wedding which they handeled beautifully! the dock was all decorated with palm leaves.. We really love it!! We just had to come back.. We found the staff friendly and completely honest. we were accidently overcharged once for lunch and the next day our meal was free. we had wondered but thought we had misunderstood and didn't ask.
The staff were especially helpful we were able to arrange a tour with just us and our guide and it wasn't any more expensive. we went with the suggested guide for fishing,"Tony's" and had a blast,
We especially liked how small this resort is, there aren't a million kids running around nor is there a lot of loud partying. People having fun, sure, plenty of fun going on in San Pedro. Clean comfy and a fridge and coffee pot in the room. Good breakfast too.. Very pretty, the beach wasn't perfect but we snorkeled off the end of the dock and swam there. It's so clear its like swimming/snorkeling in an aquarium, only better.

Room Tip: ground floor, ocean view rooms arebest

I have traveled to Belize 6 times over the past couple of years. Each time we spend some time in the jungle and some time on ambergris caye. Each time we have stayed at a different hotel, or rented a house. I have booked our next visit and we are returning to Caribbean Villas. The staff is helpful and easy going. Our accommodations were clean and well stocked. The food from the bar is convenient and tasty, and so were the drinks. The beach is nicely maintained, no simple task !
see you in June ;)

This was my first trip to Belize; I went down for a small family reunion and we couldn't have picked a better place. Overall, I feel this hotel is the best deal on the island; affordable, beatiful beach, great views, 20 minute walk to downtown, complimentary bicycles, and tons of shade if you want it.

Everything was good (owners very friendly, maid service very good, quick free transfers from and to the San Pedro airstrip, well maintained grounds), except for these few things:

1. Noise not from our AC, but from the next door unit's AC: the window facing our next door unit's wall AC did not have glass, just shutters, which meant a lot deal of noise coming from our neighbors' AC unit. The worst part of this is that you could not control the noise because it was not your AC.

2. Breakfast: I felt this was a little switch and bait. Went the first morning to the bar and the guy there said they were no longer doing free breakfast. Later on we stopped by the office and inquired about this. The guy in the office talked to the guy at the bar on the phone and in the end said they needed to get food for breakfast from town. I said ok, left and did not attempt to go to breakfast on any other day. We tried to focus on the positive aspects of this vacation.

3. Lack of private or semi-private balcony space: our unit only had a very small and very public space outside with two plastic chairs and one table that barely fit in the space. Just like others said, you could get the ocean view only if you opened the door and went outside.

4. Bathroom needs updating really badly. See attached picture of the shower.

5. Beach cleaning: there was only one guy cleaning the beach and it looked like it was a full-time job. At the end of the day, there was sea weed still left on the beach. We incidentally went to another resort towards the south of the island for lunch one day, and their beach was totally clean, so I know this is not mission impossible.
