Were planning a trip in March and have narrowed our hotel choices to either Mayan Princess or Sunbreeze. Can anyone tell me what the beaches are like, we usually lay around the beach but sometimes like to get in the water just to cool off. Also how far away is the Sunbreeze from downtown, would it be within walking distance.

Both are downtown, and their beaches are great. Can't go wrong either way....

Not to disagree with Marty, who knows a lot more about Ambergris Caye than I do, and I've stayed at both places and like them both a lot, but I wouldn't say either has a great beach. Mayan Princess is right in the middle of town and while it's on the water with great views from the one-bedroom apartments, and a sandy area to relax in, this is not an area which has good swimming (due in part to boat traffic), plus there's a good deal of foot traffic along the beachfront here, which is used as a public walkway. The SunBreeze also has a great location at the south end of town, but it doesn't have much of a beach either -- it's just some sand and a seawall. It does have a great pool, though, and a pretty good swimming beach is close by at Ramon's.

Linda take a look at the beach front composite photo Marty has posted at //ambergriscaye.com/message/Forum4/HTML/001553.html
Mayan Princess is the BIG pink hotel near the middle of the photo.
Sunbreeze is closer to Ramon's at the extreme left of the photo, but I can't tell you exactly which one right now.
Belize it!

I looked at the coast line and I think we could get in the water at either location. I'm leaning towards the Mayan Princess since it looks like it would be closet to town, we like to go out at night and I'm unsure how far away the Sunbreeze is. I really want to thank everyone for their help, I've been reading this message board since July and it really makes you excited about visiting Ambergris, I cant wait to go.

Sunbreeze is directly across from the airport and is in town, very accessible to any of the restaurants, shops, etc.

Love the wide angle photo! Could someone give me a location for Rocks Inn? I know it's north of Mayan Princess, but I can't pick it out. Thanks
