10/10 Exceptional

This place was such a great find. We stayed in one of the suites and had a room overlooking the lagoon. We saw starfish and a Spotted Eagle Ray right off the dock in front of our room. The staff are all super friendly and helpful. Drinks are reasonably priced at the bar and the pool is sparkling clean! We took the bus in (5.5 hours from Belize City or 2.5 from Belmopan on the express bus). Town is about a 5 to 10 minute walk and taxi to town is only US$2.50. Taking the boat across was super easy and quick, even in the pouring rain one day. Sunsets from the island are amazing and it is indescribably peaceful. Our room had a small fridge, a coffee maker with coffee and sugar, a microwave, and dinnerware for two. Beds were comfy and showers were hot. Absolutely no criticism of this place at all. I wish we could have stayed longer!

The property itself actually looks really cute and picturesque. The location is pretty unique though - you have to cross the canal by boat in order to reach it and the boat service is only until midnight. I had a private room that didn't have view, AC or bathroom and really was more like a closet plus the smell was really weird. It is not the worst option though if you are a budget traveler.

Budget accommodations
They do have a swimming pool; the accommodations are budget. They do not emphasis that the bathroom are in a separate place(not in the rooms). They also do not tell you the room are 6 ft by 11ft. It felt like being in a prison cell. I can say that the pool was good and the swim up bar is nice. They do offer some rooms with the bathroom in the room. The owners were nice and the boat ride across to the island is about 1 minute long and neat. If you are looking for a basis place to sleep that is clean and near the center of town this is a good option.

2/10 Poor

When my daughter arrives they has cancelled her reservation without notice. The attendant was rude and foul mouthed. They did offer her a room without a door to sleep in. I would NOT recommend this property and I am not happy with Expedia for cancelling without notice. My daughter was travelling alone for the first time and has to scramble to find a place to sleep on the first night of arrival not being familiar with the city. Very unhappy
