The Belize Yacht Club is a hotel/time share/condo/convention center with a mixed history. Most people who just stay there seem to like it; condo owners there have lived through a lot of changes, some not to their liking. It's a time share, too, which for many sophisticated travelers is not a plus.

But ... for the description: It's maybe one-third of a mile south of town, within walking distance. The units are attractive apartments, with tile floors and a Mexican feel; condo owners typically bought "up and down" units, with one bedroom on the first floor and one on the second, and the units are rented out separately.

There's a nice pool, bar, a restaurant and a convention/meeting center, the island's largest I guess. There's no real beach, though it's on the water with a sea wall.

The place has gone through a variety of changes over the years, and it continues to expand with new units and facilities/amenities.

And there's a gas station.

I spent a week there in July and was very pleased with my oceanfront unit. Living room, kitchen and bedroom all very nice. All of the employees were very helpful from the front desk to the ladies that did a superior job cleaning the unit everyday. I have stayed at other places on AC and been disapointed but if you enjoy not roughing it to much then this is a good place to stay.

Scroll back Orion...."Not roughing it".

Lan, what or who is considered a "sophisticated traveler"?
And why would the "sophisticated traveler" not enjoy a resort that also had time share?

My enquiring mind wants to know......LOL
