Hi everyone. I am trying to figure out the best place to stay for moderate pricing . So far have 3 major places in mind. What do you think of Ramone's, Coral Bay Villas, and Belizean Reef? Are they nice, worth the money , active enough , good beach areas, good air vebntilation , nice rooms , comfy beds etc? any help would be great. We are also going last week in September , is that a good time , not killer heat? What are some great must see places to go and best diving spots? Anyone done a Padi certtification there? Thanks again , Dawn

I always recommend MataRocks. (BTW-- they probably have their pool in by now)Check them out...They have suites or doubles...

Without a doubt, go with your 1st choice of Ramons. Spend the extra $ and go for one of the upper floor suites. You will not be disappointed.

1st off, sorry for the size download, it was a quick & dirty web post.

1. It is the 2nd floor, not 3.
2. Yes there is a great breeze, but the other rooms just have a door and a couple windows facing the beach. The suites have french doors that open completely. Just the overhead fan does a wonderful job at night. Unless of course you have one of those no breeze nights, and you've the ac to take care of things.
3. The pool
4. The bar
5. Ice box in the room
6. The pool
7. The bar
8. Coffee machine in the room
9. Great shower & bathroom area
10. cd player components
11. The pool
12. The staff
13. Raking the beach each morning
14. The pool
15. Lobster season beach grills
16. Ramon's dock
17. The pool

Damn, I forgot.

Off season, we have paid as low as $150. It all depends, how long you stay, do you get lucky and they are just tourista slow that period.

thanks sandman but i think 150 a night for the standard room is a little out of our budget , any other suggestions?

I stayed at Ramon's the first time I went to SP and agree with sandman, you have to get the suite, the other rooms are not worth the money. I stayed at the Blue Tang in July and it was great for the price, I would stay there again. Also, have you tried the Sunbreeze, it is nice and right next to Ramon's

I haven't stayed at Blue Tang since it was acquired by new owners and rejuvenated and I liked it quite well before all the work was done on it. However, it is a bit pricey now. I'm surprised that you are looking at it, if you think you can't afford the Banana Beach.

Anyway, Blue Tang is in a pretty good location, except that I always recommend that people get a front suite on the south side because the suites on the northside are right by the road.

Have you looked at Seven Seas?
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
