We found the hotel showing it's age (and we supposedly stayed in the higher end rooms). It would be a 3-star at best. The staff, however, was very nice and pleasant. The resturant, on site was also very nice w/great staff.

It would be more like staying at a Super 8 w/a kitchen in the room.

Overall the stay was enjoyable and the staff was very helpful. The restaurant was very nice and served lovely Belizian and international cuisine. Manuel was always helpful and his food recommendations were on point.

The apartments were very clean and well equipped. We had an issue with the water not staying warm enough for long to take a bath in the jacuzzi tub since it required more water. And even though they cane straight away to fix it, it still never stayed warm enough to fill the jacuzzi tub. We were fine taking quick showers.

Overall, nice stay, friendly staff, great service.

The resort is lovely, the rooms are comfortable and well kept. The housekeeping staff was very attentive as was the desk staff, and they found us the most wonderful dive master. We used the kitchen to cook our own breakfasts, everything we needed to prepare and serve meals we found, and there was a grocery within 5 minutes walking distance. The on site restaurant was excellent and about the same price as other places we went. We loved it!!!

Room Tip: Our two bedroom condo had one room with a king bed and one with two twins. This worked out OK as we...

Villas At Banyan Bay was one of the most comfortable stays ever.

The 'villa' we got was a huge appartment with two bedrooms, each with an individual bathroom. It had a spacious dining area and a even bigger living room area incl comfortable couches and cable TV. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need in case you want to cater for yourself. The apartment was clean and well taken care of.
We enjoyed the sooo comfortable bed as well as the 'TV area' that we hardly wanted to leave the place at all. If I had to mention things I did not like too much it would be that the interior decor (paintings) was somewhat outdated and the a/c was a little cold and we did not figure where/how to set it. But these are truly minor points that did not affect the experience enormously =)

But the Villas At Banyan Bay have much more to offer, so we did leave our lovely apartment and gave it a try. And we were not disappointed at all.
The Pool area is very nice, the pool itself has a big area that is kids-safe/only ankle and knee deep as well as a separate area incl. pool bar for the adults.

The hotel restaurant 'Rico's' provided us with yummy food morning to dinner, incl an extraordinary view over the caribbean sea.

The hotel is located right at the beach which is 'ok', we preferred the pool due to a lot of sea grass at the beach. Nonetheless, they have a spectacular view over the ocean! Especially with a nice sunset =) I doubt there is a more romantic place in San Pedro that the dock at Banyan Bay...

I recommend the diving school attached to the hotel. The staff is friendly and we did some very good diving and great snorkeling (with sharks!!!) with them for a good price.

The hotel staff was everywhere very friendly and took good care of us and the apartment.

We could 'rent' two bikes for free(!) for two hours per day to explore lovely San Pedro which was great fun! Just prepare with some bug repellant since mosquitos and sand flies were quite aggressive.

I definitely want to go back to Villas At Banyan Bay. The stay was so extraordinary relaxing I love remembering it!

Room Tip: Choose a room on 2nd floor. It might be quiter than the ones on the ground/1st floor whith people wa...
