we just got back yesterday from Belizean Shores. It was great, the staff, Kate, Doug, Steve and Lyle were always friendly, helpful and fun. The accomodations were very nice, clean, and everything worked well even the AC which some places have trouble with. We had no problems going to town. During the day we rode bikes which are provided free, it is about 4 miles but only took 20 minutes. The rode in spots was alittle bumpy, but we saw all ages biking without a problem. The ferry accross the cut only runs until 8:00 PM so if your intown for the night the ferry is $5 US a person each way. Good resturants are walking distance, but prices are more, a meal with drinks is about $20-25 US a person, the Palapa is a little less but only open until dusk, Sweet Basils about $15 a person, but was our favorit place, the waiters were fun too. Belizean Shores we highly recommend. The pool is great, and the bar and restaurant open in May.
