We have made it to Amergris Caye at last…….a place we have only talked and dreamed about, the place we have been planning on travelling to for some months now. Arriving on our Island was incredible, and so special after thinking about what it would be like for so long. We certainly made the right choice to arrive by boat, as the journey …
... malaria pills, so we went back and slept for a bit. In the afternoon, we took a short flight from Corozal to Ambergis Caye (town of San Pedro). The young pilot was texting and listening to his iPod most of the time, but we made it safe. The view was incredible (see video). The cayes are well known for its laid-back vibe and attract us mostly because of the access to some amazing diving. Belize has the second largest coral reef (next to Australia's great barrier) and is home to the ...
For the next week diving, food and rum and relaxation was the name of the game. It was at this time that Steve and I perfected our art of ordering what the locals ordered. It took some time but we got our damn Chicken and Fries!
While Rae worked on her dive class the Canfield's and I explored the ocean deep. I was a bit nervous at first not have gone diving in 3 years but it all came back and we saw some amazing sites with depths down to 90ft ...
We caught a local bus to Belize City which we were told would take four to five hours. It took two and a half - a very rare occasion where a trip took less time than we were told! We had intended to spend our last night in the city because we had a morning flight. When we were driving through, we really hoped that we wouldn't have to because the city looked horrible. As bad as some Indian cities.
We caught a ferry over to Caye Caulker, an island off the coast ...
... in circles from all the cake (I think coffee was involved too) I had to go home and finish packing. I managed to fit everything I needed into my backpack. Yes! We got to the airport with just enough time to grab a bite to eat, buy some duty free essentials and board. Then there was the 2-3 hour flight. Sitting still was a challenge. We landed in the airport and proceeded to pay for our duty free essentials. It felt like we were charged double. We were easily spotted by ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Belize Yacht Club San Pedro
Belize Yacht Club
We arrived at the BYC and the pool and the bar were out of service, and they didn't care to tell us that when we reserved, and Belize is really hot and it is unfare that you plan your holiday and there is no amenities in the hotel, so we had to go somewhere else to use the pool, they didn't clean the beach, so also we couldn't use it, and the noise of the workers there that had the radio full volume. Great pictures in the internet, not what they say they are. I will go back to Belize but there are nicer places like Ramons Villages, great staff, really good food, and beautiful place.
I loved this hotel and hated it at the same time. The rooms are great...the first night we stayed in a superior oceanfront room...it was amazing, really big, aircondiitioning throughout and with a big kitchen and patio area right on the beach. Unfortunately this room was booked for the remaining nights so we moved to an oceanfront room. There was only a $20 difference in price and what a difference that $20 made....the oceanfront room was much smaller and only the bedroom was airconditioned. The bathroom was so hot it felt like a sauna.
We stayed at the Belize Yacht Club and absolutely loved our time there. The staff was completely helpful and friendly. They set up anything we needed, gave helpful advice, and were very nice to talk to. We did not expect a four-star resort when we arrived, so were not at all disappointed. The first night we stayed in an upstairs one bedroom ocean view then for the remaining nights we stayed in a beachfront. I think the key is staying in a beachfront unit. Our place was big, clean, well equipped, and we had a great sand area in front of our units. In the six nights we stayed there, we did not experience one problem. The location is great! We walked to town at least twice a day. When we rented a cart for the day, we saw that there were a several luxury resorts, but for the price and the location, BYC was just what we were looking for. BYC did not have a restaurant, but that was fine because we got to go out and explore other restaurants in town. The snorkeling trip they set up for us was wonderful, we had the best guide! I would highly reccomend BYC for families or for couples that are not expecting a honeymoon type hotel because BYC is definitely condos. It completely felt like home there, I didn't want to leave.
This was our second visit to Ambergis Caye and I 'thought' I would be going to a better hotel. We arrived late to the hotel but they still did not have our room ready. You could not sit on the furniture in the living room because it felt so damp. The cleaning lady did not clean the bathroom. Our AC in the bedroom was not working the first day. The phones did not work in the room the entire time we were there even though the front desk said it would be fixed within a few hours. When we made phone calls from the front desk, they overcharged us. The hotel also had a convention held on their lawn outside of our room (overlooking the beach.) They held a BBQ party except they placed the Grill and Garbage cans right outside our door so we could not open our door without smelling 'grilled garbage' or burning our eyes from the smoke...that was very unprofessional of them. When we were checking out...their computers were down. They said they will fax the invoice to us but they never did and charged our credit card without getting our authorizations for the charges. I am still fighting them about unexplained charges...Do not come here!!! They are more interested in their time-share plan than the customers.
We just got back from spending 10 days in Paradise. The Yacht Club was wonderful. The condo was clean and well equipped. The staff at the club were always ready to meet our needs. They are very hard working people! It was very easy to get to know them! We have many friends in Belize now! Our 2 and 5 year old children also had fun. They want to go back soon. We will definately return!
Watch everything they snoop
We Loved the Island but would never stay in Belize Yacht Club again. Someone went thru our things while we were out. Manager told us we burned a hole in the bedspread. We noticed the night we got there a cigarette burn "we dont smoke" charged us during checkout so I went to get it. the bed spread was gone I asked the front desk and they said we threw it out I told them well I paid for it I want it please get it. They came back it was in the laundry being washed ..... Not thrown away but being laundered to put back on the bed to charge the next guest I am sure.....
Stay at your own risk......
Since I used this site when booking my trip, I thought the least I could do was post a review.
Upon entering my room, late on the day of arrival, I quickly dropped off lugage and went to a meeting. Upon returning I found the following.
If you like the smell of mildew
We arrived to the Belize Yacht Club and as we opened the door and started up the stairs to our second floor condo, the smell of mildew hit our noses, the tile floors were dirty, I used wet towels to clean a path to the bathroom, the furniture needed to be replaced probably four years ago, the cushions were damp and smelly. Our first morning, we had no hot water and did not have any until later that day. For almost two hundred U.S dollars a day it was hardly worth it. The staff was great and very helpful however and the food at their restaurant was pretty good.
Great Place to loose oneself
Great accomodations and a real value for the money. Try their breakfast it is a great way to start the morning after partying all night a Fidos and Wet Willys.
