Do I need an electric adapter/converter?

Belize operates on 110 V, this is the same as the USA and Canada. If you are traveling from another country, you will most likely require an electrical adapter.

Is there a spa onsite?

Escape Day Spa, our mobile spa partner, offers a complete menu of spa services to treat your mind, body and soul.  The spa treatments use locally sourced organic products as much as possible. In the verdant land of Belize many of these products can be found close to home. Escape Day Spa’s signature organic coconut oil is sourced straight from the producers in Corozal Town. The oil is kept 100% pure, and is never mixed with any other oils.

Manicures, Pedicures and Facials can be done in your suite while you have a choice of in-room, on your balcony or on property for massages.  Treatments can be pre-booked or arranged once you are onsite.

What’s all the fuss about Sea Grass?

Belize is fortunate to enjoy the protection of the World’s second largest barrier reef system. Due to the protection of the reef, the waters off of our coast are generally shallow and calm for quite a ways out. As we don’t experience strong wave action, Sea Grass has a chance to take root. For this reason you’ll find the sea beds of Ambergris Caye to be predominantly grassy.

It’s important to keep in mind that Sea Grass is actually an important part of Belize’s ecosystem, and the removal of Sea Grass is highly controversial and legislated due to its importance to the health of the Barrier Reef.

What this all means is that our resort does not have a traditional walk in beach. Tourists and locals alike enjoy swimming off of the island’s many docks where the water is deeper and the Sea Grass doesn’t tickle their feet. Our dock at Belizean Shores is a great spot for swimming and stairs lead directly from the dock into the water.

What about the Sargassum Seaweed I have read about?

Intermittently, coastal areas of the southern USA, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean will experience periods of Sargassum Seaweed washing ashore. Sargassum comes from the Sargasso Sea in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and is normally kept at bay by water temperatures and currents. We work diligently to keep our area clear however guests should be aware when visiting coastal areas that seaweed may be present.

Are hairdryers provided?

Yes, hairdryers and toiletries are provided in all units.

Can I have my suite provisioned in advance of my arrival?

Yes, you can provision your suite with a wide variety of food and beverage items. Please visit Belize Grocery or Mata Grande Grocery.

Please note, in accordance to Health and Safety regulations, outside food and/or beverage is not permitted at Island Tavern or the Blue Hole bar.
