Ambergris Caye hotels: Top 5

Off the Belize’s north shore, Ambergris Caye is the biggest island out of the several ones and is known among the Belize visitors for its stunning scenery, cozy atmosphere, and proximity to the longest barrier reef of the Western Hemisphere. It is obvious that you must have a brief idea of the hotels and resorts here as per your budget so that you can enjoy the most soaking attractions here.

If your budget is high, you can choose one of the costliest Ambergris Caye hotels in the largest city of San Pedro on the island. However, the fact is that a majority of the tourists choose relatively more informal as well as budget hotels here. Despite the popularity of the island and the recommendation of advance reservations, it is really surprising that one will have no trouble in looking for a hotel in Ambergris Caye even if the reservations were not done. Most of the Ambergris Caye hotels offer soaking vistas of the coral sand beaches, while a few of them also provide diving or snorkeling trips in addition. We will now look at the top 5 Ambergris Caye hotels.

Banana Beach Resort

This is in the calm, south zone of the island; which features an indulging fusion of rustic allure and modern coziness that demands around $80 per night from its guests. Mexican impact is seen right from its lobby until the end of the resort. Besides the standard rooms, apartments and suites are also offered with kitchen as well as lounges, which are more preferred. A wooden walkway takes you to the waterfall-featuring swimming pool, massage hut for day-spa treatments, and second courtyard housing a Jacuzzi in the middle of the big swimming pool. An awesomely clean beach dotted with palm trees is also just down here, which is great for joyful swimming. Come here if you want to stay for long.

Royal Caribbean Resort

This is the choice of all backpackers for its affordable rates starting from $77 per person in low season. Nestled very near to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve as well as the Ambergris Caye Beach, this resort holds some 42 non-smoking rooms that are well equipped with all the modern amenities including kitchenettes and offers sea, garden, or pool vistas. Above all, you can also sail or dive on the site for some fees. Kayaking, windsurfing, and boating are also possible nearby.

Coral Bay Villas

Starting from $99 per beachfront condo (not per person) during the low season, this is the hub of affordable as well as comfortable villas featuring an unobstructed vista of the Caribbean, white sandy beaches, and the barrier reef. Although the condos are cheap, they are well equipped with all the contemporary requirements right from an Ac to kitchenette. If you want to stay very close to the attractions, but still want to be away from the hustles and bustles; this one is made for you.

Tropica Beach Resort

Nestled on a clean swimming beach, this is the perfect tropical retreat for sitting back and relaxing. Play in the surf that is just 150 ft away, enjoy the views from the porch, snorkel the waves, dive into the reef, and boat around the island while staying in this cool refuge. The rates start from $115. However, it is preferred to choose from the breakfast package rates that include breakfast, lodging, and taxi use charges for a minimum of 5 night stay.  These rates start from $100, which renders the resort a real backpacker’s destination even in peak times.

The Palms Oceanfront Suites

Flanked by the coolly green gardens as well as isolated freshwater pool, the Palms is loved for its central location from where you can easily reach most of the island’s shops as well as superb restaurants by walking. You can opt to stay either in one of its oceanfront suites or a casita by the poolside, both of which are equipped with TV, AC, verandas, and a fully equipped kitchen. And yes, this is also where you can fulfill all your adventurous cravings: diving, snorkeling, cave tubing, golf, Mayan trips, and bicycling. Rates start from $129 during the peak season.


For those who want to stay at Ambergris Caye for more than seven days; I would recommend staying in a full-furnished home on rent rather than going for the hotel rooms that are a bit costlier.
