I'm fond of Paradise Resort Hotel (not the Villas, that's a different property, but very nice, too). It has a huge property, lots of flowers and palm trees, very comfortable rooms, great staff, a nice palapa bar and restaurant. No pool and no beach, although you can walk north to the cut in less than five minutes and there is an ok one there. Not too many beaches in AC are great. It is right on the water, though. They have a web site, so you can see if it works for you. We've gone for years, they have rooms from about $75 to $130 per room, not per person. If you are staying any length of time, they will negociate with you. The nice thing about the higher end is you have a full kitchen. The downside, they are ground floor and depending on the season, you might have a bit of a sand flea issue. There are two nice cabinas exactly facing the sea, check on 5B and 6B, top floor, no sand fleas, cheaper, but then, smaller, no kitchen. It is a lovely place. Nothing fancy, just old time Belize, and just a minute walk north of the village.
