Has anyone been to Captain Morgans? Can you give me your opinion on it or other suggestions on Resorts with beach front casitas? ie:The Tides, Journey's End, etc.
Thanks, Steve

The Tides doesn't have beachfront casitas. It's a nice place and a good value, but it has only rooms in the 12-room hotel.

Lessee, places with thatch cabanas are:

Captain Morgan's -- believe they have 15 left, are gradually adding condo villas

Victoria House -- they have 10 casitas in a half-moon shape, plus other accommodations, about 2 miles south of town

Ramon's Village -- originally all the units were small thatch cabanas, but now nicer beachfront units are suites in multi-unit buildings. Just south of town -- second-largest hotel on the island with 60 units. Avoid back side "garden view" cabanas.

Paradise Hotel -- older moderate-priced hotel at north end of town

Mata Chica -- at far north end of North Ambergris Caye. Really nice, highly decorated thatch cabanas.

Journey's End has cottages on beach, but they are not thatch. Journey's End is the largest hotel on the island with about 70 units.

Playador/Exotic Caye has some sorta thatch units.

There are a few other places that have cottages or houses on the beach, not thatch. Cayo Espanto has beautiful, very expensive (like $600 a night) villas on a tiny private island just to the west of San Pedro.

Of the thatch type cabanas, I'd say Mata Chica's are by far the nicest. The casitas at Victoria House are showing some age, but they are supposed to be refurbished a bit later this summer, and the resort itself is very nice.

You will not be disappointed with Capt. Morgan's. A plus: it has a large fresh-water pool in case you don't want to walk all the way out on the 300- to 400-foot pier to swim.
Food is good, staff is excellent. At least it has been for the last few years.
