Several differing opinions are given in the above thread.

SimonB's suggestion from the other topic is a great one for you. I think the really interesting and important question is: Where do you stay first, North or South?
In regards to AquaMarina Suites, there have been certain concerns raised... every property has some anecdotal negatives. If I were you, I would only stay at AquaMarina Suites if they could put you in any one of: Rooms 206, 207,306, or 307. Looking at the photo in the lodging section of this sight, these rooms are left side, middle and top floor.

SandB I will stay north for the first 5 nights
After that and reading the thread on Aqua I deceided to pass. But considering (all around $ 85-100/night) Tides, Seven Seas and Bannana Beach- Seven Seas gives You a full kitchen,TV Pool) what are the beaches like at all three?? What are opinions of these places? Really appreciate all the help
What a differance.

We stayed at Banana Beach the first part of March. I would recommend them any day. We had an ocean front suite though so can't attest to the pool area rooms. The service and people are what would bring me back. The restaurant and breakfast were also another big plus. We liked the location too.

We've stayed at Seven Seas three times, so obviously we like it. However, we we donít spend a lot of time in the room. Weíre happy with the value for the price, but I donít think the units are as nice as at Belizean Shores. You can probably find other posts delineating pros/cons about the place, but here are mine.

-Quiet, but close to town.
-Well maintained
-Friendly staff - helpful in scheduling trips.
-Nice pool area
-Decent kitchen w/ microwave, etc.
-View from the sun deck is nice and the front yard is pleasant.
-Itís close to Papiís Ė a good traditional Belizean restaurant. And itís only a block or so away from the bakery.

-AC only in bedroom - bedroom is smallish
-Pool is behind the building, rather than by the beach.
-Most of the suite photos you see on the website are of a model - not of the actual room you will stay in.
-The rooms donít benefit from the trade winds as much due to the internal configuration of the rooms.
-There is no real beach at Seven Seas Ė thereís a small sea wall at the water line.

Hereís a thread from last May that discussed Seven Seas: http://ambergriscaye.com/message/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=4;t=008741#000000

Weíll be at Seven Seas next week Ė Iíll be glad to give you a fresh update when we get back, but you may need to make your decision before then.
