“Almost Perfect but a couple of issues”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

We stayed at the Belizean Shores as part of the Surf and Turf package offered by Green Dragon Adventures. In some respects, the resort exceeded our expectations. The size of the unit was great and the pool and swim up bar were fantastic. The people were friendly and accommodating. There were only two issues that warrant mentioning. The water pressure in the shower was extremely weak. We had to resort to rinsing off at the pool side shower because the unit pressure was simply too low. The other issue was with the resort restaurant. My husband became somewhat ill after eating dinner there so we chose to have our remaining lunch and dinner about town. In addition, the service at the resort restaurant was friendly but quite slow. All in all, we had a nice stay at Belizean Shores. It wasn't perfect but very good.

Belizean Shores is a collection of 1 bedroom villas right on the water. The staff greets you on the dock with a drink and a warm welcome. Getting there from the airport is a mixture of short flights, taxis and short boat ride (or you could do ferries the whole way which I would not recommend, but getting there is all part of the adventure. The rooms have beautiful views - furniture is a bit dated, but still nice. The real star of the resort is the best designed pool I have seen anywhere - truly beautiful and fun for all ages. You can do tours right from the dock of the resort. A great variety of unique restaurants in the area.

Room Tip: Try to get a villa closest to the ocean for spectacular views.

We stayed at the Belizean Shores in early April (during our Spring Break), and we were surprised how quiet the resort was. We didn't have to fight for pool chairs, and the place generally speaking felt very quiet. Not sure if it was the particular week we went (week before Easter, which I imagine is the Spring Break for many schools), but it felt quiet and a bit isolated.

There were only a couple of restaurants within walking distance (we really liked Capricorn's stuffed grouper (the house specialty)). Otherwise, you'd likely need to take a water taxi or golf court to San Pedro to eat.

So if peace and quiet is the atmosphere you're looking for, then this may be the place for you. We really enjoyed the pool, swim up pool bar, and the air conditioned rooms. Our room was an "upper level" room, so if you have kids staying with you, I would recommend an upper level room since there's a loft on top where the kids could sleep (they liked having their own space up there).

The water taxi into San Pedro was $10/pp round trip (or $25/pp for unlimited trips for 5 days), which discouraged us from going there too much. Instead, we rented a golf cart, which for a family of 4, is comparable to the water taxi (for a 2-4 hour rental) but gave us a bit more flexibility. The kids (ages 12 and 10) also enjoyed driving the cart.

Overall, had a wonderful stay there, and would recommend it for those seeking quiet isolation. For those families looking for some excitement and wide choice of restaurants, I would recommend choosing a resort closer to town.

We were at the Belizian Shores for three nights last week with our children, 13 and 9. It was a delightful spot overall- clean, comfortable, great value for the money, quite and nice large pool, good food, a cheerful staff, and very nice guests. Marianne the General Manager in particular went well out of her way to welcome us and to arrange a special early morning departure. We stayed at 4 hotels during our trip and the Belizian Shores was our favorite. Our kids enjoyed the company of other children who were guests and my husband and I had time to ourselves as well. The service is slower than in the USA but that is part of the charm of Belize as a country. We also enjoyed walking down the beach in both directions to other nice restaurants at night with flashlights in our hand. The hotel also offers boat taxi's to/from the hotel. We happen to take a cab because our water taxi had problems...and the 15 minute cab ride was quite dusty and bumpy which had us wondering if we had made the right decision but from the moment we arrived, things were perfect. We liked being ten minutes north of San Pedro as the town is quite congested with little space. This hotel location was ideal. Overall, we enjoyed our stay immensely, and if we were to return to Belize, this would be included in our plans.

Belizean Shores was definitely a beautiful place to stay...grounds are stunning / pool is fun.....and it's a fairly good location and a fair price. The beach is definitely not beautiful in front of it....lots of sea grass and murky. There are resort / locations with pretty water though....I think they are closer to San Pedro. Belizean Shores is about 3 1/2 miles north of the town. They have good amenities on site....kayaks use complimentary/bikes and golf cart charge rental for. They will arrange for your transport from the boat docks, and the people are very nice. I thought the food was overpriced and decent but not great.
