This place is the most overpriced, overrated, and delabidated place on the beach. The wood is rotting and the steps to the rooms are dangerous. I slipped each time I climbed them and fell from the 3rd steo to the bottom. I injured my hip badly and was in pain for the rest of my trip. What's worse, I reported it to security and the front office and was met with indifference. No corrections were made to help the problem, when all it would have taken were some mats to prevent slipping.
The bar is a joke. The locals keep the barkeeper busy so service is terrible. The locals usually turn the kids loose while the drink, the one without kids try to panandle or sell some junk so they can drink. It didn't take me long to find a good bar just down the beach.
The pool is a cheap plastic model that isn't worth jumping in.
This place is one of the pricier along the beach. After seeing some of the others, I felt totally ripped off by the price and the accomodations. Not to mention the fact that I am still sore and have a very large bruise on my hip. Someone is going to get hurt or worse at this place in the future.
It isn't cheap to fly and stay at Ambergris Caye. Just don't make the same mistake by wasting your money here.
