“Family friendly, Great Location, People... a blissful week!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

While the location and amenities at Banyan Bay are great, it's the staff who make it an excellent choice for a great place to stay in San Pedro. We were testing out traveling with a one year old and they exceeded our expectations for accommodating us and made us feel like unique family guests. They treated our baby with joy and care and catered to us our every need. We enjoyed a spacious two bedroom water front condo and had wonderful housekeeping from Anna. The pool is perfect for kids of all ages and we also enjoyed some alone massage time from "Seashells Spa." Despite our desire to rent a golf cart that came to no fruition since the island was booked out, they were great about arranging snorkeling, transportation and bike rental. We wished Rico's had a better selection of food for vegetarians (the two choices were laden with cream or cheese), they were willing to make adjustments, made awesome smoothies and delivered me beer while I circled the path with a sleeping baby in the stroller (that was a nice touch).

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are up two flights of stairs, but have a nice view from their upper balcony. We st...

Very spacious 2 bedroom units, with a full kitchen and living room. The buildings, grounds and rooms well maintained, clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Large pool, well maintained and raked beach, on site restaurant and pier. The balcony are spacious, furniture comfortable. Banyan Bay is also affiliated with the RCI timeshares. Hotel will provide beach towels.

Not so good- I was surprised that the beds didn't have any mattress pads. he restaurant Rico's is a little more expensive than some of the others. Cart rentals are higher than other places on the island. Average prices I found were $50 to $75 Belize /day
Some tips- there is a local distribution center which you can arrange to have cases of beer and sodas delivered in advance so it is waiting for you on your arrival. In addition, they also sell Brazilian coffee- ground or beans. Alcohol on the island is expensive. When arriving into Belize City, you can pick up 6 bottles of wine or alcohol per adult duty free and carry that with you to the Cayes.

Room Tip: There are 8 buildings with the pool in the center. A, G & H are oceanfront, G& H in front of...

We just got back from Villas at Banyan Bay last week. This place is fantastic! The rooms are clean and welcoming and the grounds are impeccable. It is a beautiful relaxing place to stay and a perfect location. The beach is a beautiful view but does have lots of seaweed on shore. They try hard to get rid of it each day but it's impossible. Our maid, Ana, was the best!! The pool was beautiful and the perfect temperature. No getting up at dawn to save chairs by the pool - no need to. This was our first time in Belize so here are some things we found out that may help others. The restaurant on this property is beautiful but we thought a little spendy. The rooms have a full kitchen and we would make a brunch in the morning and then go out for dinner in the evening at different places each night. The grocery store is about a block away. Drinks are about 7 - 8 dollars for fancier ones. Beer is quite reasonable and if it's ice cold it tastes pretty good. Rum drinks are more reasonable too. Beer averages about 2-3 dollars. We rented a golf cart from Crystal and it was a little more reasonable than at the hotel and we had no problems in dealing with them. It is really nice to have a golf cart to get to restaurants and do some exploring of the island. Evening dinners probably averaged about 15 to 20 dollars per person. The food was really good everywhere we went. Ate alot of fresh fish and seafood. You can wear shorts and t-shirts to any restaurant around. It's a very casual area. The weather was beautiful every day and the water and sand and palm trees are so pretty. Snorkeling was great - we went with Happy & Grumpy and can't say enough good about them. I will review them with more details. All in all it was a fantastic vacation.

Room Tip: You don't have to have a beachfront villa for a good view. We were 15 feet from the pool and co...

I'm sad to say we are leaving the Villas today. This resort is absolutely wonderful. The staff sincerely do all they can to make your experience the best. The villas are beautiful inside, the beds are very comfortable, and clean. The grounds keepers are constantly working to maintain the beautiful gardens and pool. The service at Rico's restaurant is excellent. I will definitely be returning to the Villas at banyan bay.

We rented three units, and they were all excellent.

We had a very nice time at Banyan Bay. Although a few things went wrong with our trip, none of this was the fault of Banyan Bay, who were very nice and helpful. The property itself was very nice, even though we had unseasonably rainy weather in January.

The problems were that (1) American Airlines Vacations pushed us to hire a rental car we couldn't use without properly checking out the property (you can only get here by boat or plane) and then tried to deny responsibility, wasting our valuable holiday time until confronted by signed affidavits that they were in the wrong. Banyan Bay actually helped us to resolve this problem, and they get kudos for this.

(2) when without any warning Bottom Time Dive shop closed down and vacated the premises, Banyan Bay reception picked up the slack and helped us book our outings.

We enjoyed our stay in Belize.

Room Tip: It is worth it to get a beachfront room.
