Hi everyone - - I am coming to Ambergris Caye at the end of June :), and I am just about to book my accommodations. What do you guys think of the Belize Yacht Club? location/amenity wise? Of course the BYC staff raves about it, but comments on the web range from people thinking it was great; to people thinking it was a dive. I am not too picky; I just want a place close to, or in, town. With a pool. I donít care if it has a nice beach in front of the property - - I donít think the BYC has a beach at all does it? But I donít want a disgusting place either.
Your thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated!
Hey Thseeker; i am going to be there for July actually... I know exactly what you mean, the website looks brilliant, but it talks about a few properties so you really dont know what property they are showing on the site.... i look forward to reading what people say.
hey, maybe people can say if the BYC pool is shaped like an Octogon? that is the shape of the pool on their website-
I would say that the Yacht Club is a good location...and if you can get a room for under $100usd, it would be an okay deal. There is a beach with some chairs...but a sea wall...you can't walk directly in. The pool tends to be a bit dirty most of the time.
When I was there in March we stayed at the Exotic Caye and friends stayed at BYC. They were very disappointed. They were moved to a offsite "motel" like place which was not too nice. I thought Exotic was better and so did they. They couldnt leave because they did not give refunds..so they stuck it out. The "offsite" place was not that well kept up and it was older furniture etc etc. JMHO...I would make sure that you get a condo ON SITE..and get it in writing. I have been to AC 4 times and each time I stay at Exotic and love it. I will be there again June 27 for 10 days and Exotic it is. I am also impressed with the Sunbreeze. Never been in any rooms, since I spend most of the time at the Mojito Bar LOL. But the exterior looks nice.
The deluxe rooms at Exotic Caye are nicer. Standard rooms tend to be a bit older, smaller, with less amenities. Good location, very clean pool and rooms, and a great beach bar out front. The Palms is also very nice, our personal favorite.
From the Palms.......there's the Purple Parrot, steps south...BC's steps north and Blue Water Grill another 50 paces. Paradise Villas has Wet Willy's steps away....and town is a few hundred yards south. both great locations
