Just a heads-up regarding our family's (2 adults, 4 children) recent stay at Coconuts over Christmas.

The rooms were fine and the rates were reasonable.

What we didn't expect was the evening entertainment -- live music right outside our rooms late into the night two of the three nights we were there.

Quite literally there was a drummer not more than 12 feet from the door to one of our rooms -- not what we needed after spending the day on the 12-hour Lamanai trip.

We were told subsequently that this is not uncommon at Coconuts, though we certainly weren't warned about it when we booked our rooms.

Obviously it's their property and if they want to run a hotel and a nightclub in the same small patch of ground that's their business.

But please don't let it be a surprise to the guests!
