An Affordable Vacation in a Beachfront Hotel on Ambergris Caye Belize - Articles Surfing
Want to go to Ambergris Caye, and not wanting to spend too much money, then check out Belizean Shores Resort, which is beachfront and affordable
An affordable vacation on Ambergris Caye, with rates varying between USD105 to USD180 per night double occupancy sounds about right, but what do you get for your money. The beachfront hotel is called Belizean Shores Resort, and it has a good location on the beach just north of San Pedro, so it's a fairly short water taxi ride from their shops and restaurants.
The Belizean Shores Resort boasts the best swimming pool and ambience on Ambergris Caye, and is a well established favourite beachfront property with a great reputation for ots fantastic views, and totally relaxed atmosphere. A real getaway type of place.
The accommodation is spacious, with each suite with a separate master bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, dining and living areas and a terrace. They all are air conditioned, have ceiling fans, Cable TV, and daily housekeeping. The villas, really condominiums are all privately owned so perhaps Belizean Shores Resort should really be called a villa hotel or a condominium hotel, but whatever it is somewhere to be enjoyed.
The Belizean Shores Resort gets a high rating from its guests, with few grumbles, but be warned if you go in the season of tropical storms then the electricity isn't that reliable and their will be power cuts. Most guests will tell you it is a beautiful place, and strangely enough for a beachfront hotel on Ambergris Caye, they all comment on how much fun the pool at the hotel is, with the swim up bar.
Another important comment is that there are plenty of sunbeds and even more important umbrellas.
There seem some doubts about the hotel restaurant, although the food is hot, served quickly, it perhaps just doesn't suit everyone's palate. Fortunately by walking down the beach you can find alternatives, or go by water taxi to San Pedro.
Another generally agreed point was that Belizean Shores Resort is a great place to kick back and relax, giving you an affordable vacation, so don't necessarily expect luxury. Having said that the rooms are clean and nice, and the full kitchen is handy for snacks, breakfast, and possibly lunch. The official rating is three stars so if you go expecting that you will actually be more than pleased with what you are getting for your money.
There is no doubt the staff are friendly and helpful at Belizean Shores Resort, and will take you over the water to San Pedro for free if they are going that way, but you will need a water taxi back which you have to pay for. This is a little pricey, somewhat irritating, but in truth there isn't that much worth going to in San pedro, and the local restaurants on Ambergris Caye are perfectly OK.
For shopping for food and stuff there is a small minimart down the road at a resort called Captain Morgan's, but be aware that you won't get sunscreen here with an SPF of over 15, so you need to bring your own, and as almost everywhere in Belize you will need a good supply of insect repellent.
At the end of the day Belizean Shores Resort will give you a great affordable vacation, but without too many frills. It has a lovely beachfront position, it is very quiet, so not for nightlife lovers, but that is one of its charms.
