Belize's Top 10 Resorts [List]

When you are in Belize you get a bit of everything; The elegant mountains, the exotic flora and fauna along with some cool mystic places to discover. We all know that when you are in Belize you are not in for one or two days instead a whole week or a couple. So after the long adventure and fun you need a place to rest so that is why I have prepared a list of the best hotels and resorts that Belize has to offer. The list is in no specific order. 

1. Belizean Dreams – Hopkins: In Hopkins , Belizean Dreams Resort enjoys a convenient location near the airport and nearby attractions such as Hopkins Beach . Other attractions include Bocawina Mayflower National Park .

2. Blancaneaux – San Ignacio: Blancaneaux Lodge is located in sprawling Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve in western Belize. The resort is an hour and a half by hotel shuttle from Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport in Belize City.

3. Cayo Espanto – Ambergris Caye: Cayo Espanto is the most incredible hideaway, a very private place to stay where you can take part in world class snorkelling, fantastic scuba diving and an all inclusive format with catered meals and top class and attentive staff.

4. Chaa Creek – San Ignacio – Maya Mountains: Chaa Creek offers a natural history center, butterfly farm, and rain forest medicinal trail where guests and local students learn about the area’s culture and wildlife from licensed naturalist guides.

5. Chabil Mar Villas – Placencia: On the Placencia Peninsula, next to the famed Turtle Inn, is the Chablis Mar Villas Resort, our pick for the place to stay in Placencia. This place is just very tastefully done, including beautiful landscaping from the front gate to the beach.

6. Jaguar Reef – Hopkins: Also in Hopkins is Jaguar Reef Lodge located next door to Belizean Dreams. Both are situated on a nice beach within easy reach of a quiet and unspoiled part of the beautiful offshore reef.

7. Kanantik – Stann Creek: Uniting the experience of a Caribbean beachfront resort with that of a jungle lodge, the Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort is for luxury travelers who seek to embrace both Belizean extremes.

8. Turneffe Island Resort: To start with this is an intimate resort on an island located off the coast of Belize situated in one of the three large atolls. It’s a pretty spectacular setting for sure. Unlike a lot of places you’d stay, this resort’s cabanas (the most desirable accommodations), ring the island so each gets a view of the white sand beach and the azure water.

9. Turtle Inn – Placencia: Described as a Caribbean Paradise this five star beachfront resort owned by Francis Ford Coppola consists of a small cluster of thatch roof cottages on the beach just north of the small town ofPlacencia.

10. Victoria House, San Pedro – Ambergris Caye: Victoria House is a 41-room, luxury, boutique hotel on a beautiful white coral beach, on the island of Ambergris Caye, about 15-minutes from the San Pedro airstrip. This property is 100 miles from Belize City in Ambergris Caye.
