10/10 Exceptional

Part of me doesn’t want to tell you about how amazingly beautiful this property is. Or how the breeze flows through the beach cabanas every night to keep you perfectly cool and relaxed at the same time. Or how the moon reflects off the water as you’re sitting on the sand with a cold beer in your hand. Or that the wonderful staff makes it a point to know your name and greets you with a smile every morning, afternoon and evening. Or the delicious meals prepared just steps from your room come with a gentle ocean breeze and a million stars. Nope. Part of me doesn’t want to tell you about this place because it’s such an amazing find. But I will. So if you go, enjoy, tip the staff big and only tell your cool friends. Cheers!

Restful Stay at Singing Sands.
Singing Sands is a lovely small resort. It has an excellent restaurant with a large selection of delicious food at reasonable prices. You can get coffee starting at 6:30 AM. Best latte ever. Staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was a large “cottage” in the garden. It had the most unique shower I’ve ever seen. Pool was very nice. Beach was just ok. A variety of seating areas outside. It was a very laid back and relaxing place to stay.

Absolutely beautiful. I’ve traveled all over the Caribbean and this is my favorite location. Belize in general is the ultimate paradise. Peaceful and “how life should be”. Thank you to the entire staff for being so perfect!

The Inn was very quant and quiet. The staff was always smiling and helpful with any needs or service. If looking for a small, secluded vacation site this is the place. The food was amazing, in taste and appearance.

We loved Singing Sands
Singing Sands has effectively dialed in a great vibe! The cabins are clean, comfortable and have a zen-like simplicity. The only thing I missed was having a small fridge in the cabin. Everyone was helpful and very kind. We loved the bikes that were available for our use.

2/10 Poor

This was the absolute worse place I have ever stayed at... It's currently being operated by a team of unprofessional associates and they have no idea what they are doing. Rooms are dirty, most do not AC, no TV's, 1 hairdryer for the entire resort, no doors between your sleeping are and bathroom, almost like in jails, as you see on Crime TV Shows, lamps on a nightstand not plugged in as there is no plug to be able to plug it in, very dirty floors, no closets, no hangers, and the list goes on, an on, and on. When I asked for hangers - I was given a few, but they were all rusted, basically useless. I fell, because there are no railings, hit my knee and my elbow - nobody even offered to take me to the nearest hospital, and when I asked for an ice pack - nobody what I am talking about... eventually I was given a plastic bag filled w/big chunks of ice... DO NOT GO THERE, DO NOT STAY THERE, it's a dump, it's awful, they would never pass a health department inspection

8/10 Very good

Beautiful Property, Basic Amenities
On arrival, I was greeted very warmly by the owner who showed me the grounds and my room. The location and the property are beautiful. Like many Belize beaches, this one was overrun with seagrass and hadn't been maintained as some resorts do. Kind of disappointing for the family because we thought the Maya Beach area may be different, so no ocean swimming for us. The beaches around the village were much cleaner and swimmable in my opinion from past experiences. The room (family room, multiple beds) was VERY basic and wasn't very inviting unfortunately. Cinder block walls, dark, minimal amenities, and probably the worst mattress & pillow I've ever slept on (extremely thin and worn). The outdoor bathroom was a unique touch to the plain room. We ate at the on site restaurant for dinner & lunch and found the dinner and drinks to be spendy (not uncommon for Belize) and my dinner special (chicken marsala) and lunch (Korean beef sandwich) were very blah. I think the family picked better options because they were happy. The waiter and bartender didn't seem too interested in any conversation, but that's okay. We went off site for the rest of our meals. The pool was nice and refreshing and we spent a big portion of the day in it. It does close down at 6, however. The owner checked on us regularly and was SO extremely nice and helpful - we really enjoyed our conversations with her - I just wish the room would have been better (primarily the bed). Everything else was beautiful.
