Hello everyone,

Been looking for a place in Ambergris Caye for the 1st week of December. There will be 5 adults (early 50ís Yikes!) and we would need 3 bedrooms.

We are looking for either a house/condo or hotel. We arenít too picky but would definitely want to be on the water. If it were a house we would like a pool but would settle for a hot tub. For a condo or hotel we would want a nice pool with a good bar (LOL).

So far I am leaning towards one of the three bedroom units at Banana Beach. Most of what I have seen of it seems like what we are looking for however the sites all seem to be run by travel agents Ė does anyone have direct contact info for them. (Iíve had some bad experiences with booking thru agencies but wonít rule them out if necessary.)

Does anyone have a recommendation for some place other than BB?

Seems like you have quite a nice forum here and I am looking forward my first visit to Belize!

Have you checked out Victoria House. They have a villa or two that might accommodate what you are looking for. They are right on the water and have a great pool. Restaurant was great when I was there in 2001. Going back with my wife on our anniversary in December. Can't wait.

Banana Beach has everything you asked for, plus some. Their contact is: info@bananabeach.com

We've always booked directly with them.

Click on the Lodging link at the very top of this page for direct access to most all the properties on the island.

JLOWE Ė Thanks for the tip on Victoria House Ė it looks awesome and I am sure it would be great for a honeymoon, anniversary or romantic getaway! For this trip however I donít think we will be spending too much time in our rooms and canít justify spending almost double what Banana Beach would cost us. We may have to check out their restaurant and bar though!

lawcucui and Hon Ė thanks for the contact info. I will be getting an email off shortly to check availability! Lodging link Ė whoda thunk! I need new glasses!

Fluffy thanks for the tip Ė it didnít look like they had any 3 bedrooms but it looks like a nice place.

If we donít stay together (and believe me it is like herding cats!) we would spend half our time looking for each other or end up hanging out in one cramped room LOL!

Thanks everyone!

I was at Banana Beach in May with 6 people that were in their 50s and early 60's and had a great time. We had 3 rooms that were all connected on the 2nd floor.
I need another vacation.

Thanks again everyone for your help!
