Accommodations in Belize range from comfortable diver hotels, to romantic thatched-roof cabanas on the beach. Consider staying on Ambergris Caye if you want more than just diving – the colorful town of San Pedro offers shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, internet cafes, some nightlife and even a casino. Serious divers may want to consider the outer atolls, like Blackbird Caye in the Turneffe Atoll, or Manta Resort on Glover’s Atoll, or the Aggressor liveaboard. If you’re looking for ruins, jungles and rainforests, and diving, Hamanasi Resort on the mainland offers the best of both worlds.
Choosing a “package” of hotel and diving will defintely save you money. Although there are many properties to choose from in Belize, we believe these offer the best value. We’re available with a toll-free phone call 5 days a week and always glad to talk over your options!
A charming hotel with a great location – next door to the town’s shops and restaurants and directly on the ocean. A lovely pool and fountain overlook the Caribbean. On site, the Blue Water Grill offers great food and a fun bar where divers gather in the evenings to swap “big fish” stories. Rooms are very spacious and include air conditioning, ceiling fans and cable TV. 5 deluxe rooms also include a refrigerator. Ambergris Divers is located just steps from your room. Their large, covered dive boats are very comfortable and gear storage is included.
Pamper yourself in a romantic, tropical atmosphere. Authentic thatched-roof cabanas under the coconut palms are tastefully decorated in local island style with beautiful hard-wood floors. Take a moonlight swim in their lagoon style swimming pool surrounded by lush palm trees, plants and Mayan statues. Enjoy delicious local cuisine in the world-famous Purple Parrot while gazing at the beautiful Caribbean. There is an on-site dive shop who also offers optional mainland excursions.
This comfortable hotel is located right in the middle of all the action in the heart of San Pedro town, directly on the beach overlooking the Caribbean and just steps away from the town’s restaurants and shops.
