Recent guest reviews

Somewhat dirty .. old and run down. Location is decent if your not worried about having a room that's not too comfortable

The wonderful staff from front office and property management to housekeeping to restaurant together with the perfect location for our vacation created an excellent and enjoyable experience for us.

We went to Belize with a group of friends in late January. It was a fabulous trip! The Corona Del Mar was located right on the beach with about a 20 minute walk on the beach to the heart of downtown. The staff was helpful, funny, and fun. We referred to the beach chairs, restaurant, and bar area as our "living room". The hotel exceeded all our expectations for an economical retreat to Ambergris Caye. One of our most memorable experiences was a night at the Black & White Cultural Entertainment Center a few blocks from the hotel. They do a presentation on Garifuna culture in Belize (and the food is wonderful as well).

The staff at this place immediately make you part of their family.The beach is beautiful and the hotel is well maintained. It is not a luxury hotel but you couldn't find a happier or more congenial place to stay.The bar is great but Kenny and Margie make it special. All of San Pedro is convenient and welcoming to tourists and you never feel like you are being taken advantage of and everyone seems glad to have you there. Although there are many things to do for us it is the perfect winter get away and we can't wait to go back to Corona del Mar.

Hotel is clean. The staff is wonderful and very friendly.

it dosen't really look like a hotel. curtain on glass door

Really great experience! They were really accomodating. The rooms were clean, the staff was very friendly, and the price is right. It's worth getting a golf cart to explore town, there's a place across the street from the hotel.

The hotel is very nice, and the price was just right for the average person. If/when I return, I'm definitely staying there again!

I love staying here !! This hotel and staff makes me want to keep coming back to Belize !! great staff , great location !!!!

room wasn't as pictured online, but it was comfortable. Didn't spend much time in room so it was perfect for our trip. The staff was wonderful and welcomed you with a smile at all times.

The wi-fi was unreliable, but the room was clean and comfortable. I had a horrible view, so upgrade to ocean view. Norris who worked breakfast serving was the best part of hotel. She was a delight. The staff does not communicate much about what they offer on the beach or in general. I did not find the guy who books excursions very friendly and even seemed upset i was planning scuba with a company other than the one he booked with.

We had originally booked two separate rooms, but upon arrival the staff upgraded us to the penthouse suite which allowed all of us to stay together. It was a wonderful suite which included a common area, dining area, full kitchen, washer/dryer room, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We also had our own patio area. The staff came to our suite daily to clean, make the beds, and change our towels. There is a restaurant and bar on premises. Breakfast is served every morning, and water and rum punch are available as well. There was karaoke singing taking place on Friday night. It was quite loud since we clearly heard it all the way upstairs, but we didn't mind. The hotel is not located in the busy part of San Pedro which was good and felt more like a vacation. If you walk along the beach for about 15-20 minutes, you will be in the busy area with lots of restaurant and bar choices. I will say the WiFi was a little spotty in the penthouse suite, and the ordinary rooms did not look really well-decorated, which is why we didn't give perfect ratings, but overall, a wonderful place to stay with very friendly staff!

The only problem I had was when I arrived they did not have my reservation. The e-mail was sent to their SPAM folder. The lady at the front desk quickly resolved the issue and upgraded my room. She had wonderful costumer service and fixed everything. The room was clean and had everything you would expect from a hotel in the states. They provided free drinking water, punch rum and breakfast. They have a bar down stairs by the pool with reasonably priced drinks. The Wifi signal worked everywhere in the hotel but was slightly slow. The staff was friendly and kept the whole building clean and the beach area in front clean. I was able to rent a golf cart though the hotel and it was about 10 cheaper that other rentals I saw. They also helped me with reservations for snorkeling and a flight tour to the blue hole. The hotel is located less than a mile south of the heart of town. We found everything we needed within walking distance, grocery store, food, shopping and other entertainment. They even dropped us off at the water taxi terminal free of charge at the end of our stay. I highly recommenced this hotel, I was very satisfied with everything they had to offer.

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed at before in life. The bar staff was nice, but the ladies at the front desk were horrible. I was wondering why I was waking up itching each morning. On the last night I checked underneath the covers prior to getting into bed and discovered ants crawling in the bed. I tried to go to the front desk only to see it was closed. I walked around and still could not find anyone. So I had to stay up all night and sit on the table the entire time because there were ants on the couch too. When the office opened that morning, I told the lady at the front desk and was told I should have walked around until I found security and they would have contacted her so she could transfer me to another room. That was her solution to the problem. She got an attitude with me although I was the one with bites and red marks all over my body. I had friends who were staying there as well and they too had ants in their room and apparently in their bed as they all have bite marks and rashes too. So I only saw ants, but only God knows what else was there. I found that the sheets were stained and moldy as well. Take my advice and DO NOT STAY HERE.

The stay was wonderful. Everyone at the hotel was outstanding. They met us and dropped us at the ferry by golf cart. Daily or nightly scuba trips started at the end of their dock. Daily breakfast with many fresh fruits, and all-day rum punch was delicious. Happy man took me fishing in his dinghy, and that was a little adventure. His wife is wonderful. Right on the water! Nice chickee huts. Easy walk to many restaraunts along the beach, and 10 seconds from their restaraunt and bar. Nice family enviroment and feel. Locals had high school graduation party one day/afternoon....lots of cheerful people. Bicycle, walk, or golf cart anywhere quickly. Very low key and relaxing during the day, with a little more activity at night.

Right on the water, a fair walk to center of town, pretty quiet. If you don't need a lot of amenities and fancy comfortable digs, this is good spot.

My son and I stayed there in June of 2014. It was my 5th trip to AC and the second time I have stayed at Corona Del Mar. The rooms and bathrooms are basic. The bar is good and the food is good. The location is close enough but far enough from the hustle and bustle of San Pedro. Probably the best value on AC, all things considered. Rent a bike!

Hotel under renovation but this did not get in the way of a very nice stay. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Small bar menu but excellent.

We stayed here a few months ago and loved it so much!

The hotel was a bit out of the way but it's a pleasant walk into town. The staff was friendly and helpful, and although the hotel had a run-down look to it the room was decent for the price. I would be open to staying there again but wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to do so.
