We are planning our honeymoon in AC in Nov. I just started looking for places. This will be our first trip to Belize. Any comments on Blue Tang Inn? We are looking for a place with a view of the beach, Air conditioning, clean, and close to town.

Hi TX,

My wife and I stayed at Blue Tang Inn in May. We loved it. We won a stay there as a grand prize. The room we stayed in was on the third floor in the middle and was quite big (room 12 - ocean view). The rooms have nice kitchen areas which can come in handy even though we did very little cooking. Our A/C had a little trouble keeping up with the mid 90's heat, but it's one of the biggest rooms. Others' said their rooms were plenty cool. The rooms weren't extravegant but comfortable and clean.

The groundskeepers were always busy and the grounds were quaint and beautiful. The pool is small, but the area was very private and was wonderful. A great meeting place for the quests and a must for cooling off. We met everyone whose stay overlaped ours and shared many activities with them.

Carol and Fannie in the office were very nice and helpful. The housekeepers provided continental breakfast in the morning before starting room cleaning. The fresh squeezed orange juice and the fruit was great, the rest was nothing special, so don't fill up when there are very good breakfast spot right down the beach.

I don't know what your expectations are, but noone we were around was disappointed. They all seem very pleased too.

The heart of town is just a short walk (a few blocks.)

Hope this helps.

Stan

Thanks! We are fairly simple people just looking for a nice place to stay where we can find a cold beer, friendly people and a beautiful beach. Not interested in paying big $$ for a fancy resort that keeps you away from locals.

I think the Blue Tang is a great place, especially the front units on the third floor. That said, the "beautiful beach" aspect may not be what you have in mind.

We stayed at the Blue Tang a couple years ago during our first trip to Belize. We had no complaints. That said, since then, we have discovered that we can get a one bedroom condo at The Palms or Belizean Reef for about the same money.

You might check with Coral Villas - Studio's are $99. right on the beach. Bikes & kayaks are provided. We're staying there in Nov. Has a well equipped kitchen although I don't plan to cook that much. Will be engrossed with scuba lessons.

From what I understand, there is NO beautiful beaches like in Cancun. It's full of sea grass.

My husband and I stayed at Blue Tang last year. It is a nice place and the staff are wonderful, however, the beach is not very pretty. We prefer to stay north of the cut. Not as convenient, but more peaceful and beautiful.

I understand that the beaches aren't like the most beautiful in the world. I'll take calmer beaches with out all the glitz of Cancun.

I definately don't plan to cook while there. But we do need a fridge to keep our beer cold!
