We're looking at Ambergris Caye in August. In the UK there is very little info available, and Victoria House Resort is the only place noted. Anybody know anything about it. Is it any good? Does it have a beach? Is there any life around it? How easy is it to get to dive schools? Any snorckelling near by or do you need a boat? Any info at all would be great, thanks from the UK.

Welcome Billy,

There is over 6,500 pages available to you on this web site on Ambergris Caye. If you go to the top of this page you will find a link to "lodging". I strongly suggest that you take a look at all the hotels, resorts, villas, and guesthouses listed with links to their individual web sites.

Also, you will find a "search" function near the top at the right side, and under the "reply" link. Ask for any item such as snorkeling or diving and tons of info will be at your disposal.

Victoria House is a beautiful up-scale resort about 3 miles south of the main town, San Pedro. Most diving and snorkeling is done at the barrier reef about ½ mile offshore. A boat is strongly recommended and they are readily available. This can be arranged through any hotel front desk for no extra charge. VH has a web site at: http://www.victoria-house.com/ which has a lot of the info you require.

Take the time to do some research and you will find all the info you may wish to have.
http://www.ambergriscaye.com takes you to the home page of this site and all the links are listed on the left side and on the bottom of the page.

Enjoy your look at AC and have a great holiday.

We are staying at the VH in a couple of months.We have several friends who have stayed there and said it is very nice. It has also been renovated recently. On their website, they have a guestbook for comments from recent guests. They have all written positive things about their stay.
But you should, as with any trip, research everything before making any plans!

Billy W, Victoria House on Ambergris Caye is one of the best resorts on the island. I have stayed there several times and thoroughly enjoyed it. they have their own dive shop with excellent equipment and great divemasters. In the UK you can get more information on it through Journey Latin America in Chiswick, just outside of London. You can also fill out the request for info on the website, they are very responsive. Good luck, I will be there in three weeks and can not wait!
