I loved my time at Blue Marlin. The staff, charm, seclusion, views, reef and aquatic life all mixed together into an unforgettable, mind-clearing getaway. You can make what you want out of your stay. If you want to vegetate on a hammock and not to be disturbed, then you'll have that. If you want to be interactive with the staff...

My wife and I stayed at Blue Marlin Beach Resort for a week in late November/early December. If you don’t want to read through my narrative, but just want to know,…would I return…the answer is, without reservation, “Yes”. We are “independent travelers”, preferring to research our destinations and make our own arrangements. We’ve never had an all‐inclusive experience. We’ve never...

At first we were reluctant to come to Belize because of the Hurricane in early August, but then last minute decided to go anyway and Blue Marlin Beach Resort ( and Bonefish in Dangriga) was our first stay. Boy were we glad we did! Its not everyday I get to stay on a tiny island literally being the only guest...

Thank you for sharing your unique experience on South Water Caye. It was absolutely our pleasure hosting you both at our little jewel on the reef, and we truly appreciate that our Team's efforts to ensure your vacation proceeded without a hitch did not go unnoticed. Our "night on the town" in Dangriga is a cherished memory :)

Absolutely loved staying here, and would recommend this to anyone and everyone. South water Caye is a very small island, and we felt very safe and happy the whole time. Blue Marlin staff was very kind and always helpful. The food was so good! And Stacy at the bar knows how to make a drink!

We stayed for 3 nights with another family and our teenage children. In all, we had one cabana and two igloos. While we had a hiccup with the initial reservation, they handled it professionally and we were satisfied with the outcome. The cabanas are private and beautiful. The igloos are surprisingly roomy and keep nice and cool. All of the...

We arrived with two staff and 18 16-18 year old Environmental Science students from Winchester in the UK. The students were taking part in a 'Reef and rainforest' expedition run by Programme for Belize. Although the two staff members have run this trip to Belize many times, we had not been to Blue Marlin. The resort exceeded our expectations. Accommodation,...

The owner was very gracious and assisted us in many ways during our short 24 hour anchorage in front of the resort restaurant. He assisted in helping us report our stolen dinghy.

Thank you for sharing your experience. We were happy to help out sailors in need. And then it was an unexpected pleasure to find out we were the chosen island venue for the engagement proposal and to be included in this lifetime memorable occasion. We can't wait to hear of their honeymoon plans.

We didn't stay out the lodge, but we did eat at their restaurant. The island is beautiful with numerous palm trees. I enjoyed the hammocks as we waited to go to dinner. Enjoyed the snapper with veggies, delicious eggplant (and I'm not typically a fan), and rice. Also, they served a celery soup as an appetizer that was phenomenal. Definitely...

The fantastic service and hospitality of this resort was obvious right from the start. We booked our trip on line through Carlene and it was a breeze. She answered any questions we had almost immediately and all transactions were completed effortlessly.

The Blue Marlin is a spectacular spot, one of our favorite places ever. The small island has Blue Marlin, a few private homes and 2 other resorts. There were about 15 guests when we were there, the max is ~30. So very quiet and low key. We loved our beach cottage room. We left the windows open to listen to...
