This place has recently switched ownership, and definitely for the better. The new owner, Gloria, is an amazingly friendly, hospitable American who will take the best care of you. My boyfriend and I stayed here for a month and felt right at home.
The location is a bit out of town, but with bicycle or golf cart (the two most popular ways to get around), it's less than five or ten minutes to the main part of town. You can rent bicycles from the hotel. The beach is a quick two-block walk away. There are plenty of restaurants and small local shops nearby. I really liked that it was a bit outside of the bustle of the main part of town; it felt more local and like the romantic getaway we were looking for.
The service is probably the best asset of this place. The housekeeper and cook, Evelyn, can make you some mean rice and beans or breakfast if you request it. In my opinion, she makes the best wings in town. The small bar is usually pretty full with locals, expats, and tourists at night--definitely try the rum punch! We were more long-term stays, but we would ask for our room to be cleaned and it would be done within the hour. Gloria and the rest of the staff will provide you with a wealth of information and resources if you are looking for something to do around the island, and they all made me feel as though I was part of their community. The internet and AC works well, beds are comfortable, very safe, showers are hot, and the pool is refreshing after a hot day out on the town!
I'm sure all of these things will only get better as Gloria continues to make improvements to the place. If you're looking for an affordable getaway with a more local feeling, definitely come to Belize Hutz!
