Anyone out there familiar w/this operation (Cap'n Ron's Paradise Villas & Reef Adventures? Is it reputable and legitimate? We got it off the www.ambergriscaye.com website under lodging. On this website, the lodging look's like those offered thru Nellie. The guy's name is Ron Herring. We're trying to confirm thru the Belize Tourism Assoc. We are new to Belize and are planning a 3 week stay in March 2004.

Appreciate any help

First, most anything you see advertised on the www.ambergriscaye.com Web site is legitimate. Marty does a great job.

Paradise Villas is the name of a nice little condo development at the north end of town. Several different companies and people own condos there and market them to visitors -- Tradewinds, Nellie's and others. Prices vary a little as do the decor and furnishings of each condo. I don't think I know which ones belong to "Captain Ron" -- maybe somebody else does.

It's legit. The only thing I might caution you about is that Ron advertises that his units are oceanside, or something like that.

Like the others, I'm not sure which units are his but if I recall correctly, someone once mentioned that the units are over by the road and not actually oceanside. I'd confirm that first before booking, if I were you. By the way, I like Paradise Villas location and grounds. It doesn't have much of a beachfront, if you are into that kind of lazing about, but then lots of places in SP are like that.

Hey, Scubaldy, you know this guy don't you?

I don't think so. He's had his units for awhile. In any event, anyone booking at the Paradise Villas, whether with Ron's, Susangg, Tradewinds or Nellie, should ask just where their unit will actually be located if they care about that sort of thing.

Has Susan actually sold hers?

Albany Girl - Which Albany do you hail from? The one up North or the one down South? I'm from the southern one.

Paradise Villas are a good location and good size units with a nice pool. Each unit varies based on the owners

This IS Cap'n Ron. And yes, it's legitimate, and I've owned BEACHFRONT units only for over five years. I visit this board often, and I know everyone tries to be very helpful. Unfortunately, some people post info that they haven't verified - I hope everyone will be cautious of this.

We also offer diving, snorkeling, fishing, jungle tours, etc. through our dive shop, Reef Adventures. Ched Cabral runs Reef Adventures, and he has been providing excellent service to visitors to San Pedro for over 6 years.

If anyone wants references, I am happy to send email address from numerous 2003 guests. We are committed to excellent experiences for our guests with our friends in Belize, and with the reef.

"Enjoy the reef; protect its ecosystem."
