This place was at one time very good, but don’t bother now. Staff are doing the best they can with from our view little guidance or help. The view from the road is just down right scary. If we saw this in the daylight before checking in we might have cancelled. The smell from the water toys launch area is in front of the main restaurant and pool is sickening. Personally we have trouble ordering a drink. It is pub type food at best unless you ask if they have something else, then they make a great meal. The front office staff just keep saying “ I am Sorry” The main manager is doing her best with what she has been given, run down is the best we can say. As a timeshare experience this is very disappointing. The new owners need to spend time and money if they they expect to continue. A once lovely place is just falling apart. Outside coverings just hanging off the building, grounds are struggling to look presentable. Has a casino but cannot open due to covid, second pool open but pool bar is not open and neglected. Overall look is just plane run down! Non existent activities within resort or cancelled at last minute. The place is empty and can easily see why. The large pool picture in brochure is of Oceans 23, part of the old resort segregated from the rest. This is for private owners. Everyone we told where we were staying said it was too bad new owners took over.

I came here after getting out of the army a few years back and meant to do this a while ago. The hotel is beautiful and the food was amazing. Boni was my guy; he hooked me up with whatever I needed and told me about all the events going on. I am definitely planing a return trip to Belize and definitely planning on staying here. Highly recommend. Jeff

We’re a family of four - booked a 1-bedroom villa, the description said it would sleep 4 people with an extra sofabed in the living room. Let me tell you what the sofabed really is - a health hazard. I tried sleeping in it the first night but it is so bad I couldn’t get a wink of sleep. It is my second night here, I was so tired and fell asleep on it for an hour. Now I have a full back ache and trying to sleep on the floor. FYI - I’m a perfectly healthy active person with no back issues. I asked the frontdesk if they could do something about it, they told me they could give extra blankets. I asked if they could give me a different suite, I was told they would work on it and haven’t heard from anyone so far. Paying ~400 USD per night, it is a disgrace I have to go through with this. This was supposed to be my vacation, looks like I have four more nights of sleeping on the floor. Captain Morgan’s, if you’d like to know… I’m in E2. You know where to find me.

First time traveling to Belize. Wonderful visit. Staff were awesome and very helpful. First class service. Accommodations were clean and comfortable. Facilities were immaculate. A tropical dream and must stay. No other place on San Pedro captures the Caribbean like it, thatch roofs and all. Welcome to Gilligan’s Island! Only negative were the mosquitoes.

I will be going back to Captain Morgans Retreat. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The room was beautiful and very clean. The staff was amazing!!! I did not want to leave, lol. The only disappointment was that the casino was closed, but I will return in a post-covid world to check it out:)
