Recent guest reviews

I came in at 11am. My room wasn't ready yet. I know they had to turn over for the next day, so no problem. I finally was given a room around 3pm. There were no towels in the bathroom and the wifi didn't work in the room. I needed the wifi for work so I informed the front desk of the issue. They told me it would be corrected in 20 minutes with a reset and towels would be brought up. After 30 minutes reminder and a 1 hr reminder, neither problem had been resolved. So I went back down with all of my things and requested a different room. I was given another room around 5:30pm. The wifi was not working in this room either and their were still missing linens for the bathroom. I went through the same process. I finally got into a room with working wifi and towels at 7:30pm. Extremely frustrating day and not a good welcome to the property.

Comfortable hotel, but strong smells in elevators, lobby and casino. Nice staff and restaurants. Would still use again.

Internet didn't work in the rooms. TV's worked in one room and not others. There was a pool party going on with obnoxiously loud music playing that reverberated throughout the property. Armed guards at the front entrance. Had to wait an hour at check in because rooms were not ready.

Excellent staff. Have stayed here for last 8 years. Best for us.

I rented this hotel because I wanted access to the pool for the kids while I was in the city taking care of some business. When I booked I was not notified that the pool was not in service. Our room was at the far end of the hotel which was nice and quiet. However, when we needed to call room service our phone would not work. When we addressed this issue with the staff we were told that the phones are not working in certain rooms. Any requests we had would require a walk from one end of the hotel to the other to get to the lobby. We booked a room for 4. Staff stocks the room for 2. When we ask for additional supplied we were told that our room should only be for two. Upon check in, I was required to write all guess names on the info card and it clearly showed myself and 3 others. That is what we paid for but we got service for two and got a mouth full from the staff as if we were asking for a hand out.

The cost of hotel does not line up for what you get ( it's so over priced). Had to request a second room because tv was broken and telephone in my room was not working. Oh and you're not able to make local calls from your room. Will have to go to front desk to make a call. Breakfast buffet was the same everyday except for the type of bread served with the food. Also what they have is what you get. You will not get to order breakfast for a cost. If you can avoid staying here I strongly recommend you do so. My worst stay in Belize ever!!

excellent staff nice surroundings excellent food good service nice entertainment

Front desk staff was very impatient & unprofessional, so we ended up cutting our stay short & went to the Biltmore hotel.

After we an accompanying Pastor had a rough boat ride from Guatemala to get to Punta Gorda and miss the plane. We had to pay for taxi 5hrs to the Ramada Belize Hotel. The bed felt like heaven, so to speak. :) risiing early to go to Kolbe prison to minister to the inmates. In the chapel we praised the Lord, and the Inmates raised the roof with praise. We came back to the hotel. The pool felt like an Oasis. The restaurant was fabulous.The view and ocean is fantastic. If the theater and bowling alley were open it would have been a1

Don't normally rate hotels but hope this helps: Checked in and found a hair on the white sheets & Mud footprints on the floor. Called for cleaning twice. No one showed up Smoking in the lobby is permitted. Good show at the casino and movie theatre in the property. This is a plus. Also great location

I cannot say it's the best hotel in Belize City, but what I can say is that the staff caters to being the best. Whenever you ask for service within minutes you're being taken care of. There are two restaurants on site and the food is excellent.The breakfast and dinner buffet gives you a choice to choose from and the price for dinner is fairly reasonable as you can eat all you want.Breakfast is a part of your package. The hotel is centrally located and taxi drivers are right there to take you wherever you need to go for a reasonable fare.

Nice place, great buffet. Right on the waterfront, with benches and swings.

This is a great hotel with all the amenities. Only drawback is that they allow smoking in the lobby and bar area. They need to stop this. It is disgusting for non-smokers to have to walk through that.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Nice hotel, clean room and really liked the breakfast buffet. Also, close to airport. Had a little fitness as well which was nice!

This hotel was centrally located to the areas of Belize I visited. The staff were friendly and courteous. The room was very clean and was equipped with hot and cold water, air conditioning and a blow dryer. The food and the service were excellent and reasonably priced.

The hoteI was very nice, I have a good time, and I hope to visit next year.

Friendly staff and very accommodating. They are in the process of updating (which the hotel greatly needs) so there was only one working elevator and during the day sounds of construction. There is a restaurant onsite and another just a short walk away; Club Calypso Seafood. The WiFi was free and reliable at about 2.5Mbs. So happy I was able to stay connected without the crazy data roaming charges!

Good overall experience, room service is 24 hrs. Staff is very helpful and the buffet breakfast is good.

The hotel is inexpensive, has great views and a nice pool. I was able to check in early and the breakfast buffet was decent. There is no hot water. The offers I was given when booking were not honored even after I asked about them. It is not a terrible place but is not a resort.

Really great and helpful staff, reasonable rate, super breakfast buffet, wonderful views, Excellent Calypso restaurant, Snack bar, gift shop, casino, bar. I would definitely stay here again.
