Playa Del Sol Resort offers complimentary snorkeling and fishing tours to each guest group. During your stay we will make sure that you will snorkel at Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley, and catch some fish by the reef. We also give you one day free golf cart rental. (Please see below for more info) Playa Del Sol impresses from the moment you dock at the pier and enter the lush, landscaped grounds, but its biggest draw is that it is only 800 yards from the reef. The unique architecture, blending tropical charm, Mediterranean sophistication and Belizean craftsmanship, is designed to merge indoor and outdoor living into one seamless experience. Inside, the guest house is bright and airy, with high ceilings, large windows and an open-plan living and dining area. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and are air-conditioned.

Start the day by watching an amazing sunrise on the pier then jump into the crystal water. Use our kayaks or pedal boards to paddle to the reef. Enjoy the pool, discover the coast by bicycle. Our jungle is home to iguanas, hummingbirds and ospreys. Hang out in our tiki bar for exotic drinks and local soul food or take a nap on our very private pier.

This tiny resort and bar is one of the last old school Belizean hangouts left. Right on the beach, reef side, ten miles north of town. With how quickly town, and not so secret beach are developing and getting commercialized, if that’s not your thing, this place is for you. Use that cart you paid for! Drive north, past residences and the scattered bar/grills. The road dwindles to jungle cart path, paralleling the beach. Iz is such an awesome crazy character, and the workers are all cool too. El Norte bar is the best in San Pedro! Snorkeling, fishing, and real island time here. Make the trek!

We have been to Ambergis 5 times now and we always make the trip up north to visit Iz. If you are looking for an authentic Belizean experience, stay here or go visit the El Norte bar. 30ish minute drive north of town.

We just spent a week at Playa Del Sol and loved every minute of it. We specifically chose it as it's way up north and far out of town. I also had recently purchased property about a mile away so it made visiting my property very convenient. The best part of staying at Playa Del Sol is Iz and his staff. They go above and beyond to make sure your stay and time in Belize is the best it can be. The included Hol snorkeling and fishing trips, guided by David, were superb as well. Easily the best snorkeling adventure I've ever had! The food and drinks at El Norte are also exceptional and very fairly priced, especially considering how far out of town you are. If you want peace and seclusion then Playa Del Sol is the place to be!

We have had an amazing time!! IZ and his beautiful wife and staff/family all treated us the best!! Snorkeling and fishing couldn’t have been better! We spent one half day at Hol Chan and Shark and Ray alley. Do NOT pass this up!! We spent another day deep sea fishing and conch and lobster hunting with David and Oscar, we caught so many things and had an amazing feast when we got back!! O my goodness, don’t even get me started on the food!!! Yuri, Cicly, and Jimmy are all the best cooks!! I’m definitely going to miss the food!! Can’t wait to come back!!

Our family of 12 spent a wonderful, adventure-filled week at Playa del Sol. Iz was quick to communicate from booking to arrival, answering all my questions about planning the perfect Belize Navidad getaway. Upon arrival we were greeted with welcome cocktails & a delicious meal. The condos are comfortable & well equipped. Swimming pool, private dock, sandy beach play area, bar & restaurant made our family stay with toddler & infant relaxed & easy. Iz is very knowledgeable about local activities & helped us plan our daytime adventures to Secret Beach, a day trip to Mayan ruins, zip lining & cave tubing, snorkeling, lobster & conch hunting, reef fishing. He arranged golf cart rentals & reliable transportation to and from the airport. The staff is a wonderful, friendly family who made us feel at home with delicious, freshly prepared meals & cocktails. Many thanks to everyone at PDS for a memorable, fun Belize Navidad🇧🇿🏖

Playa del Sol is an amazing resort to experience with a group of friends and or family. We had an amazing time experiencing the beauty and love of Belize with a group of 12 people. We reserved the entire resort and made it our home away from home for a week. Iz and the crew made our experience one we will never forget. Iz made sure from day one that we would have nothing but fun-filled days full of snorkeling, fishing and exploring San Pedro. Even though there was sea grass while we were there, it did not dampen our adventures. Rent a golf cart, it was a fun mode of transportation. The FOOD, the FOOD was so amazing, so much fresh fish and some we even caught ourselves. Iz, you are truly the master of logistics and David you were an amazing tour guide for us.

We returned for our 25th anniversary party. Iz and gang took great care of us again. We had a blast. Celebrating our anniversary with close friends and family and with our new family Iz and Shea. We had drinks and cake in el norte (basically our private tiki bar that is on campus. We danced under the stars barefoot in the sand in front of the ocean with that constant cool east ocean breeze. The snorkeling and Diving was phenomenal. Swimming with manatees on our way to caye caulker was awesome. Feeding the tarpon seeing the seahorses. We had great time fishing, lobster hunting. No place that I have been has so much sea life. Diving we saw reef and hammerhead sharks, eagle rays, turtles, huge grouper, eels, lobster and more. Another great adventure at Playa Del Sol! Thanks Iz and Shea..you are awesome We cant wait to see you soon.

This was our second time to stay at Playa Del Sol. The first time was in March for spring break with our family of 4 divers. We liked it so much that we rented the whole place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary diving with best friends. We had a dive company pick us up and drop us off at our very own dock at Playa Del Sol, which was very convenient. The days we didn’t dive, we went with David on some awesome excursions. He is very good at giving guided tours and made each time we went out in the Playa Del Sol boat enjoyable. One of those times was when we went to Caye Caulker and along the way we snorkeled with 2 kissing manatees. It was ironically appropriate as that was our anniversary day. That evening was so much fun! After coming back to Playa Del Sol we had one of many of the delicious meals at El Norte Bar & Grill and then celebrated with cake and champagne. Per my request, Iz located a bakery that was able to make the perfect cake and arranged to have it delivered for that night. We danced barefoot in the sand under the lights and stars. Iz even did the chicken dance with us! Thank you Iz for making our anniversary special and forever memorable! Thank you for making us feel like family and Playa Del Sol feel like home! We’ll see you again and again and again…

The hospitality here is so rarely found elsewhere. My fiancée and I had a blast visiting playa del sol, we didn’t stay here but we’re recommended to come by our Airbnb. we had dinner here one night where we chatted with Iz the owner and he made us feel right at home and was awesome. The next day we did a fishing,lobster spearing tour and the two men that were our tour guides were fantastic and caught way more than we did lol! Once back at Playa del sol, the kitchen prepared the fish and lobster we caught (lobster grilled and belizean fish dish and it was absolutely delicious) we then hung out with Iz and played some corn hole and hung out with the tour guides kids- who were also the sweetest- 10/10 recommend!!
