I just noticed that Belizean Shores is currently the # 2 hotel on Ambergris Caye in the Trip Advisor (www.tripadvisor.com
) "popularity index" ratings, based on 26 reviews. Cayo Espanto is # 1, but based on only 5 reviews. Banyan Bay is # 3, based on 13 reviews. Banana Beach is # 4, based on 44 reviews.
Not scientific, but interesting.
