Sapphire Beach Resort3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The room at Sapphire was great although the resort is so far from everything. The costs of getting to places adds up to a lot of money everyday. Facilities of the resort can't be used and enjoyed because of all the mosquitos and bugs. The resort is located at the beach but the beach is not like the photos on the advert. Not a nice beach to swim, sunbath or be 'beachy' on. The manager of the resort gives excellent service. The atmosphere at the resort is rather dead and there is not much to do, and the activity centre they have is SO overpriced.
This hotel is waaaay too far away from anything in Ambergris Caye Belize. OK, if you simply wish to stay on this island, but it's a half hour boat ride (which wasn't always available) to go anywhere else. We could not even celebrate NY Eve away since they did not supply a boat to from the main town.
Great place to go to the Caribbean and to go by myself or in couple. This was a great place to visit and spend time and be close to tne Blue Hole
Nice remote resort. Did not eat at the restaurant. Too expensive. Accommodating staff.
We stayed the first two weeks of November,2014. We enjoyed the quiet isolated location. Being able to travel to San Pedro on a daily basis for either a change or for foodstuff was a benefit. On site restaurant is excellent and serves excellent food. However, we found that if we had eaten in the restaurant on a daily basis, it would have been very expensive. We pre-ordered food from a supplier in San Pedro, although conveniently delivered to your room prior to your arrival, found it far more expensive than shopping at the many grocery stores in San Pedro. In all, we enjoyed our stay at Sapphire Beach Resort and are planning to return to the resort with a wonderful staff and a quiet, relaxed atmosphere.
Staff was fantastic. Our favorite part was snorkeling at the reef just a 10-15 min seakayak ride from the beach. We had an amazing time!
My husband and I recently went to Belize for the first time and stayed at the Sapphire Beach Resort. We were blown away! The resort is absolutely gorgeous! The staff was amazing- always attentive and strived to remember our names and preferences. The location was great god us because it was away from the crowds but just close enough for a short boat ride into San Pedro. We can't wait to return next year with our kids!
Very nice place! Private and far away from the goings ons in town. The staff here are very friendly and gave us the just right amount of attention we needed. It is a long way (10 miles) to San Pedro, so you can't walk there, and the boat goes twice a day, so you are a bit limited there. We planed accordingly and it worked fine. The restaurant here has very good food, although a bit pricey, but very good! You have a full stocked basic kitchen, so you can go into town to shop, or go out and fish, and make your own food too! It was great to sit out at night and just listen to the water and enjoy the solitude!! We would recommend staying here to our friends and family, and we shall return as well!
Location, location, location… Sapphire Beach has it in abundance. If remote is what you want, than this is the place. Calm waters, beautiful sunrises and a serene sandy beach allow your days start off spectacularly. Staff was always available to answer your needs, but did not smother you with unwanted attention. Only complaint would be sofa was not very comfortable and bed linens could be improved. Stop off at convenience store and bring some supplies. The rest is up to you…plenty to see and do in and around Ambergris…. WE'RE GOING BACK ! Violeta & Charles
