Here's a report on Ramon's from someone who was just there -- I just got the report this morning. I think it's a pretty accurate overview of the pluses and minuses of Ramon's (though I disagree with the evaluation of the Belize Zoo.) There are also a number of comments and reports on Ramon's here on this forum -- just use the search engine (for the forum ONLY, not the general search engine) using the key word RAMON'S.

Hi, we just returned on Monday 9/9/02. We stayed at Ramon's and just loved it. I had emailed you
with a couple of questions and you answered them. I just wanted to say thanks.
We went with another couple and that is why we had picked Ramon's. We stayed in the Beachfront rooms. A little small but did the job. The showers need a little work on. Next time we go we would try to get the
upstairs unit just for the room. We did get to check in the Honeymoon suite - more room but you were right they wanted too much money. You did stay Ramon's was a little pricey, but we believe it is the location and the action. It seemed that all the visitors to AC from the different Cayes were coming to Ramon's bar.
We checked out some the other places and nothing was going on. Well, yes it is the slow time of year.
We loved the pier with the seats.
We did do a few things while we were there. One of the things I don't think I would recommend was the cave tubing and the Zoo. Zoo was hot and the poor animals was still confined too electric cages and nothing out of the ordinary. Too much brush that you could not see them. Except for the Howler Monkeys were pretty neat. Sorry.
The cave tubing was kind of neat but everyone said agreed we did it just so we could say we did it and will not do it again. We went to see the Sharks - Stingrays. Loved It! Went to the Maruba Resort and loved it. We were the only ones there beside another couple. Next time we go we will check out other places. But for our first time we just loved everything and the people were soooo nice.
Anyway, I wanted to thank you for your Restaurant recommendations. All was soooo good. A lot of them are shutting down for a couple of weeks. They said they shut down during slow season and let everyone take their vacation.
