We so loved this place. We were picked up from the ferry dock and driven to the best little hotel on the beach. Our room #7 was immaculate. The cooking facilities were complete with stove, oven and microwave. The complimentary breakfast was always great with lots of fruit and a hot dish. The pool was sparkling clean. The location to grocery stores, bars and restaurants can't be beat. With the ocean steps from our hotel, it doesn't get any better than this. The best attribute to this hotel was the attentive staff. They were helpful, kindly and treated you like good friends. This is one of our all time favorite places to stay.
I've stayed at Blue Tang Inn three times now. It's consistently a great stay. Comfortable rooms with all the comforts you need. Immaculately clean. The best part of staying here is the staff. They are so friendly and will help you with anything you need.
My husband and I stayed four nights in an economy suite (#8) and one day into our stay we were already talking about coming back. The staff are helpful and friendly. They even arranged a same day 1/2 day snorkeling trip for us when we just had to visit Hol Chan again before we left. The room was very clean and staff cleaned the grounds each day. For us, having the kitchenette really added to our stay. We were able to grab drinks and snacks to leave in the refrigerator just a short walk away at Kmart. The breakfast available each morning was great, just enough to get you to lunch and a great added value we didn't see at any other hotel when booking. We also took advantage of the complementary taxi to and from the airport (which is very close but it was so nice that we didn't have to worry about that!). The location can't be beat. It is very walkable to anything downtown, though we definitely recommend renting a golf cart too. I think we would have been a little bored at one of the resorts way outside of the center of San Pedro so the Blue Tang was the perfect fit for us. Lastly, there was a night security guard that kept an eye on who was entering the resort late at night, a nice addition even though it felt like a safe place to stay. Will absolutely stay again! Thanks, Blue Tang Inn for the great experience.…
Blue Tang, Good hotel, clean and well maintained and with a good location. We were lucky to have a room on the street side which gave us more privacy. . Our room was spacious and very well equipped. The ladies at the front desk were helpful to help me book my daily excursions and golf cart Small breakfast was offer every morning…a good place to stay in San Pedro
I love this place we have stay several times. We keep bringing new friends and everyone loves it as well. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the whole property is very well maintained. We will be back in February with a whole new group of friends. Scott Hinton
Decided to book Blue Tang Inn over the other resorts suggested by a travel agent we contacted. For a few reasons. We wanted to stay somewhere that was more local and not resort style; we wanted to be close to the town center as we had a long list of local restaurants we wanted to try; we wanted to be close to good diving operators and we needed affordable accommodation as our South African Rand is worth much less than the US Dollar. Blue Tang Inn impressed us from the moment we booked. A warm welcoming email offering assistance with a bunch of things - including our flight bookings from Belize City to San Pedro and hotel transfers. Which was all handled with extreme efficiency. (So was all my questions about luggage and weight and so more). An even warmer welcome by all of the staff on arrival. We booked a budget room (number 2) which is on the ground level with a small balcony in the street going to the sea - so we did have a stunning spot from where we took some great cocktail photos! The room is large with nice seating area and kitchenette (which we never used in the end as the food at the local restaurants was amazing). The aircon was a life saver (coming from Africa we thought we could do heat!). The pool area is small but fab - we only swam twice as we were in Belize for the scuba diving. There is a stunning roof top veranda (which we only discovered on the last day but def a spot for some great photos too). The breakfast area became the spot where we met some wonderful new people - all sharing about their adventures on Belize. Lots of fresh fruit and something small to get you going for the day. There is a few shops just a block away and we even got some fresh pineapples and made juice with the smoothie maker in the room. Room was cleaned every day and all was absolutely spotless. We booked two tours through the hotel - the sailing/snorkeling tour at Hol Chan. Loved the sailing boat but did not like all the people at Hol Chan (however you need to do it just to experience this beautiful park). The cave tubing tour was an absolute highlight. We took the water taxi to Belize City where we were met by Belize Blue Morpho Tours - who arranged this tour especially for the two of us. Our tour guide was excellent with so much knowledge. The tubing was an experience like non other. We were there early and had the caves all to ourselves. We found Amigos Del Mar just a few minutes from Blue Tang Inn. A large family run operator with whom we did the Blue Hole diving and all our other diving too. The offered us some excellent deals. As for restaurants - Warangumas was def the highlight - a few minutes walk from Blue Tang. Best lobster burrito in town. We would like to thank all the wonderful staff at Blue Tang Inn for treating us so special and making us feel so at home - just like family! And after walking down the beach and looking at some of the other resorts and hotels - we have come to the conclusion that Blue Tang Inn was the best option by far! When we can face the 38 hours of travelling again, we hope to be back! PS: None of the hotels on this strip has a beach - San Pedro is situated on the second largest barrier reef in the world. The outer edge of the reef is only a few hundred meters away. If you want to sit on a beach - perhaps go to the Maldives - if you want a local, vibey island experience with great adventure and beautiful nature, then this is the place.…
Cold A/C, great breakfast, very clean rooms, good security, friendly and attentive staff (love Victor and Jovan!) and absolutely perfect location. The Blue Tang is our go-to when we are traveling as a family and want to be in town.
I loved the Blue Tang Inn, it was small & quaint. The people that work there are very happy to help you with anything that you need to make your stay more enjoyable. It was very convenient to stores & restaurants. We had a hiccup in traveling there, our 1st flight of the day was cancelled, but Emilse, was very helpful in arranging new flights with Tropic Air for the next day. Lionel & Giovanni (hope I spelled it right) made sure that everything was properly working & clean. They were very entertaining as they caught iguanas. Marlon is very knowledgeable in all things to do with the island. Fanny the manager & Elizabeth made you feel very welcome! All in all everyone was very friendly & helpful. I would highly recommend staying with them. We will definitely stay @ the Blue Tang again!!!…
We recently stayed in Room 5 at Blue Tang Inn. This room is on the second floor overlooking the pool and ocean. This hotel is located right in the heart of town so very convenient. We really enjoyed the Palapa bar and live music daily which is a short walk down the dock. The Sandbar restaurant next door has great pizza! The staff at the hotel were so nice and the grounds and hotel rooms are kept spotless. The pool was perfect! We loved our stay at Blue Tang Inn! Highly recommend!
PRO’s: Beautiful beachfront setting on Ambergris Caye; perfect short walking distance (5 - 10 minutes) to restaurants, cafes, grocery store, and dive centers. Friendly staff. Great breakfasts. Room was comfortable and neat, with older stylings, and good for preparing meals in as well (fridge, stove, table, etc.) CON’s: construction noise for hours (starting around 8:00 AM) right next to my room. Hotel did not offer to comp it in any way and merely left me a note saying they they were undergoing necessary maintenance. The WiFi was fine but the noise made it very difficult to work and handle phone calls and meetings. This is likely a temporary issue and probably will not impact most people who book with Blue Tang Inn.
