The staff is the best thing about this property! They were amazing from beginning to end. The property is nice, secure, they have a nice resturant, a dive shop, giant great games. There is construction going on so I was puzzled why, when it looked a little vacant they placed us in a room that was right by the construction but we made it work. And to be honest when you have to do construction and a hotel when is there a good time? We were there during their slow season. Things are expensive even with the exchange being so good they have figured that out and everything if marked very high. In spending time around San Pedro and looking at some of the other hotels that I saw on orbitz I was sooo thankful I picked this one! The pizza place on the beach came in very handy and yes the kitchen was not stocked very well but once again you can still make that work. Air conditioning was great. Bedrooms a little out dated but the property itself is not. Spent most of our nights sitting out on the beach relaxing and enjoying the outdoor bar and wonderful staff who will take the time to always stop and chat with you. I really could not recommend this property enough!

I liked the idea that they paid for the taxi to the airport and back. The place we stayed at needed new ceiling fans. They only had one speed. You could also see thru the bottom of the front door, it had quite a gap in our unit(B1). The staff was excellent. Friendly, willing to help, understood what you were saying, The staff at the dive center was also good.

Our stay here was amazing!!!! The front desk was very helpful any time we had questions. The restaurant staff is so friendly and accommodating. The pro dive shop on location made our trip one to remember. Can not say enough good things about Banyan Bay.

Our beds were extremely uncomfortable- my son chose to sleep on the couch over the bed, - condo 4D, the condo was very large and well taken care of, there are many weeds so can’t really swim at the property- although much of the island is like that due to the reef break, lovely bakery next door. Didn’t realize breakfast was included until the day we left- was not explained to us. Very quiet property, spent more time at secret beach and in town. Nice that they had the golf carts on property but expensive so you pay for the ease of having it close.

The location is fantastic, the staff are all wonderful, and the suites have everything you could need. The on-site dive shop is also a major plus—I loved that I just had to step out of my room and walk a few feet to go diving!

Excellent hotel. Many extra amenities. The staff went above and beyond our expectations.

From our checking in to our checking out, it was definitely one of our best hotel stays. The front desk personnel, the restaurant crew, the bartenders and even the security officers were extraordinary and very professional. My family and I are were very pleased with the way we were treated while spending nine days of our vacation in this hotel. We felt very comfortable, catered and protected while we stayed on this property. We most definitely consider this hotel for our stay in our future visit to San Pedro, Belize.

Banyan Bay Suites met all of my expectations! The property is beautiful and the rooms were beautifully decorated with all modern amenities including cable TV fully functional kitchen and two bathrooms and bedrooms. Located right by the beach, there were many activities for kids (fun games), hammocks and a nice shallow pool, plus you could rent a canoe for free at their sister property next-door. There is also a very nice restaurant And bar with good food and drinks, reasonably price with a good variety of items to choose from. The staff was very friendly and Chelsea and Marlon or very helpful and accommodating. They were just opening a new gift shop or Chad really high-quality items and a good assortment of clothing to choose from. They made our stay very memorable and I would definitely recommend staying at Banyan Bay Suites in San Pedro! Note: The resort is located a little bit far from town so it would probably be best to rent a golf cart though you could take taxis into town as well. There is a grocery store in a few small restaurants nearby within walking distance.

I went to Belize with two other women. We spent 3 nights in San Pedro. I loved the experience. I loved the hustle and bustle of taxi cabs and golf carts taking people into and back from downtown. The people of Belize are so nice!! They seem quite genuinely to care that you enjoy your vacation and excursions in Belize. I loved the snorkeling activities. I loved eating lionfish!! I definitely want to go back.

Great stay Great view Great Staff! Tell the Chef Garfield Hi from Tracey!!!

Nice staff and clean. Location of room was perfect.

The hotel allowed us to check in early due to our overnight flight, completely on heard of in US. The property is kept spotless. All the staff members where very pleasant. I read several reviews before booking this property, and after my visit I know I made the best choice on the island. Excellent location and value. And you have two dive shops to choose from , we picked the one just north of the hotel, they rocked.

The hotel was in the perfect spot right down to our room location. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. This was by far the best hotel/resort to stay in along that side of the beach. the only complaint is the wireless internet in the room. There was little or no signal! But once you left the room signal was great on the property! I normally disconnect when I'm on vacation but I didn't have kids and needed to be connected. Other than that, the place is perfect!

We booked this 1 week before, so glad I read all the reviews, some of the resorts are so far from town, this was a quick 5 minute cab/golfcart ride. The suites are awesome full kitchen 2B/2B wonderful A/C, clean, staff is friendly and helpful. Everyone is right, the internet is sketchy at best. The Belize Pro Dive Shop is onsite, all the guys are super nice and helpful we booked 3 tours with them and they were all small with personalized service. The restaurant is average and pricy, better to go town and eat! No one mentions you can't really swim at the beach though because the whole island is covered in sea grass washed up to the shore.

This condo complex is in a prime location on the Caye with a decent stretch of beach. My complaint would be that the front desk is not helpful or informative, and the condos we stayed in needed renovated ten years ago. (We asked to be moved out of the first because it was in ill repair. The second condo was better, but still much wear and tear.) The place could honestly be spectacular with some detail and better trained staff. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, the desk seemed disinterested.

For those who are not familiar with Ambregris Caye, you should know that this is a bit of a remote location. Once you land in BZE, there are two ways of getting to Ambregris Caye: boat or small plane. I have tried both, and small plane is the way to go (book with Tropic Air). Once in San Pedro, you will need to take a taxi to the Villas at Banyan (the hotel will pay for this). The hotel is located south of San Pedro and it is a short ride away from the local airport. The hotel staff is super friendly and accommodating. The units are privately owned, so there is variation in terms of interior decoration and furniture. Our 2 bedroom unit was terrific and all five of us fit in it! The beach area is fantastic and the grounds are well kept. The pool area is OK - not terrific. We were here during spring break and space around the pool was limited at times. The onsite restaurant Rico's is mediocre and expensive. Instead we really enjoyed Antojito's restaurant (located close to the hotel), which offered a far better value. The hotel offers golf cars for rent and bikes to use. I wish the hotel had an on-site Laundromat for guests to use. They offer laundry service by the item, which does not cut it when travelling with children. Overall. this is a terrific place to stay at!

Great location, clean, with special features added by the owner. Nicely decorated and very clean. H4 was special. Staff was friendly, helpful and always available. Snorkeling at reef was wonderful but not so good from the beach -- too cloudy. Good food.

Just like home, but with all the perks of a hotel. Loved how spacious the rooms were- from the living room to the bedrooms!!! Also loved how the restaurant was on site, and the ability to plan tours was right there as well!!!

This is a beautiful property, one of the prettiest on San Pedro. They had bikes to loan at no charge to ride into town (2km). A continental breakfast, toasted bagel, fruit, and drink was included which was very convenient. Very friendly staff. Each condo has a safe. Our TV went bust and they replaced it quickly. Small bakdery and great food close by. We had a great experience here and would go again.

friendly staff, very clean facility, good restaurant on site. enjoyed the eel show
