Check in was ok, I asked about breakfast (which was included with Hotels.com) they had to check it out and they said yes. I asked for a coupon or amount we could use, they really didn’t know. Got to our room and the only lights were the overhead fan which was very bright. I asked for a table lamp but they said they didn’t have any, the place was 1/3 to 1/2 full of guest. Wife asked for an extra pillow again no. That night they had music in the bar/pool area, but the musicians set up in front of our room about 20 feet away instead of all the way down the other end. There were two(2) safes in our room but both were not functional I went to the desk and asked they sent the maintenance guy (Leeroy) and he tried and a no go. So he got another safe and brought to our room and asked me were I wanted it mounted, so now there are three (3) safes in the room. One night they had Karaoke that was supposed to last until 9:30 it lasted until 10:45 and was very LOUD and it was at the far end of pool area. On some days they have an open pool, so lots of folks. In our room there are wires hanging down the wall for the cable and stuff also a hole in the wall where they come out. Bathroom is real small and the hot water and water pressure is variable. The owner is around but doesn’t want to engage with his customers unless he’s in some good ole boy talk. We have stayed here a couple of times before and that’s why we returned, but never again. The staff were very helpful were they could and helped it from being a total disaster. Elena on the front desk helped a lot and is the most informative.…
My family & I stayed for two nights in a standard pool view room. The staff was so polite and helpful. From Omar to the Maintenance staff were super accommodating and kind. Will surely be our spot to stay from now on. The room was super clean, the pool view was clean and the scenery was awesome. Totally recommend!
My friends and I stayed here on the recommendation of a frequent visitor to Belize. This is one of her go-to places to stay. Though we only stayed a few nights (we travelled around Belize for 2 weeks, lucky us!) Corona Del Mar captures the vibe of Belize, and especially Ambergris Caye. Really friendly staff, clean, relaxed, right on the beautiful beach. Convenient location for walking to town and restaurants. I really enjoyed the breakfasts and the afternoon ceviche. I will be back, and I will stay here again, at this happy place. Many thanks to my new friends at Corona Del Mar!
Staff is the greatest, Gonzolo (Omar), Vicki, Frank and all the staff are the best! The location is perfect, you can walk to town and many restaurants. Beach is beautiful, very shallow to just cool off or at the end of the dock swim in deeper water. Beach chairs are lenticular and comfy. Food in the bar at the hotel is reasonable and delicious. Complimentary breakfast and rum punch in the afternoon is perfect. Paradise here everyday!
Staff here is were really nice at first but then got irritated quickly once you ask any questions after checking in (aka. paying). Facility is fine for vacation stays but it's very basic and whatever they use to mop the floors, dries sticky/oily. There is a restaurant onsite with decent food and it's ON the water. NOT recommended though for long-term stay. Wifi is sometimes in issue and noisy, due to frequent parties at the restaurant.
We stayed at Corona del Mar 4 nights. The instant we checked in I new we would be taken care of. Omar and the rest of the staff truly want you to have a great stay. The rooms are nothing fancy but are comfortable and super clean! The week we were there the restaurant was closed because they were looking for a new chef. Bar was open though and they have great drink prices. Bonus was the free rum punch each night! The hotel is a short 3 min golf cart ride or 15 min walk into town. Beautiful beach with several lounging chairs. As far as the complimentary breakfast, the coffee, tamarind juice and cinnamon bread were delicious but the rest was just ok. Overall we had a great stay! The hotel needs some updating but for the price we can't complain.
The staff here are excellent, accommodations are basic, rooms have variable layouts, some with chest of drawers some don’t. We were in room 9 the first night but the security lights were to bright and they moved us to room 4 which was an improvement. They have a pool but there isn’t a lounge area by it. The beach here is nice with a bunch of lounge chairs with shade.
The people really make this place. I had a room off water (travelling solo and didn't need 'fancy') that was good for the price. My only complaint of the room was that the chairs were hard- due to the weather, I had a bit too much 'room time' on my hands. Had to resort to folding up a towel to sit on to make it tolerable. There's a couple of hardware stores near enough that I should have waltzed over and bought a folding sling chair or something. Really my only issue and not worth bothering anyone about- I'm sure staff would have bent over backwards to help me out with this had I brought it up. From office staff, cleaning, maintenance, and bar staff- (including the awesome cooks!) they make the place. Location is super convenient- right on the beach, right next to Neptune Cove Divers (great dive shop that you can actually call from the States!) and just a few minutes walk from downtown. Super convenient!…
We spent the week scuba diving with Belize Diving Adventures. Staff was helpful, responded quick to questions, made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Hotel is clean, well kept and very perfect for our Belizean getaway. Everyone is so nice.
This place is so run down that it should simply be closed. In the first room we had, the wood door of the bathroom was falling apart. The breakfast is the same every day: overcooked scrambled eggs with a questionable sausage. The "garden area" is cement floored area with storage of extra equipment. The pool is just a cement basin. It is just totally unpleasant and unclean and broken down. This is probably the worst hotel that I have had the misfortune of staying at.
