Ok, hotel on initial view is clean, staff are laid back and friendly as you would expect in Belize. Room was a double and comfy, decent tv, coffee on tap, no complaints on that front.
However, the food menu is bizarre. And suspect the chef doesn't taste or inspect food going out. Breakfast every morning was a farce. Long waiting times, for mediocre helping, and apparently the English breakfast is a continental one. Yuk. Anyway the only safe choice on the menu was eggs and toast, everything else seems to be covered in sugar or some horrid jam concoctions??
Don't expect proper milk as everything is either condensed or uht, understandable in the climate but surely fridge lorries exist here??
If your room is anywhere near the pool don't plan an early night, you can be kept awake by lots in the pool at any hour of the am on return from the pub. Or maybe a function is being held like a cocktail party u had no intentions of joining lol. Or perhaps steel drum bands are your thing? Practice night is Tuesday as I recall, loved the pink panther at 11ish. Not.
For what it is its food is extortion, car parking is inadequate, food is slow and nothing like the standards you would expect at home.
It's saving grace are the staff who try their best under poor management conditions.
The old saying you get what you pay for is untrue of this hotel.
