“Didn't want to come home”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

We spent our honeymoon at Hamansai and WOW it exceeded our expectations!
The staff was friendly, they knew our names and engaged in conversation regularly. Because the resort is smaller you really get to know the other guests! The excursions varied and added to the experience -- we saw a sting ray snorkeling and really had a workout on the mayflower hike. The food was exceptional -- a different menu every evening and the spices and flavors used were sooooo tasty. All of the veggies were fresh and the lobster, the best! The soups were my favorite -- Cream of tomato -- don't pass it up! We stayed in the honeymoon suite for 3 nights and the deluxe treehouse for 3 nights. Both rooms were well kept and warm but I have to say the deluxe treehouse was our favorite. We felt like we were alone in the jungle! To sum it up -- my husband and I ususally are ready to come home at the end of our vacation but this was the first time that we didn't want to come home -- we could have spent another week! We will be returning!

A great resort- small, clean and comfortable, very good food, excellent staff, and outstanding adventures. You might be tempted to dive everyday, but the inland adventures are not to be missed. Hike to a jungle waterfall, climb Mayan ruins, explore caves, zipline- it is all excellent. Every member of our family (including 3 older children) came home delighted. Thanks Hamanasi!

My husband and I recently stayed at Hamanasi for our 17th anniversary and we are so happy we did. We couldn't have asked for a better trip. The resort is so beautiful and so well maintained. We stayed in a treehouse and it was far more than I expected. They are so spacious and the privacy was really nice. August in Belize can be very hot so it was nice that the room was air conditioned. We did several adventures and were so impressed with the guides - they were very knowledgeable and put your safety as priority. I strongly recommended doing some of the many tours offered. Although, relaxing in a hammock under a coconut tree with the ocean breeze blowing is just as nice. I cannot say enough about the ENTIRE staff. They are all so friendly and accommodating with requests. The service really is exceptional. The food was very good and the "continental" breakfast far exceeding what I think of as a continental breakfast. You can order off a menu if you prefer but the food was so good and selections so varied everyday that we never needed to. We were beyond pleased with our experience and are already planning our return trip.

Although I had read a lot of glowing TripAdvisor reviews, I was still amazed at the level of genuine, authentic personal service at Hamanasi. From the minute you arrive, they know your name and work hard to make sure your stay is everything that you want it to be. The grounds are maintained impeccably, from the beach to the sidewalks. It is everything that the other reviews claim that it is, and we would definitely go back. The dive team was outstanding - all you need to do is show up, put your tank on and enjoy an outstanding dive in warm, clear water. The inland tours are well done - we went to the caves and the waterfalls. The meals were simply unbelievable. I expected them to be a bit more rustic, but dinner every night was five-star quality. Although there is wi-fi available at the main building, we were very glad to be in a place where there were no televisions, telephones or video screens buzzing at you all day. It's a great place to get away, enjoy the ocean and enjoy genuine island hospitality.

Room Tip: Treehouse rooms are definitely worth the money.

My husband, friend and I spent 6 nights at Hamanasi at the end of July. We have traveled many places and the hospitality and friendliness of the staff was top notch and beat my expectations. We selected Hamanasi so that we could dive but the weather was too rough for us on a few days so they gladly substituted land tours at the last minute. The diving and land tours excursion leaders were all focused on us having the best experience possible and modified the tours for what we wanted to see and do. Food was good and plentiful. All the staff were cheerful and friendly and greeted you by your first name. My friend purchased a back pack that had faulty stitching and one of the staff took it home and had it repaired. We stayed in a Tree House room for 2 nights and the Beachfront deluxe for 4. Both were extremely clean and comfortable. The Tree House room was newer and quite nice with beautiful woodwork and was secluded. The Beachfront was nice and enabled us to roll out of bed to enjoy the beautiful sunrises right outside our window. Despite warnings about mosquitoes and sand flies, we had no problems probably because the resort kept the beach and landscaping immaculate.
