Banyon Bay charged you $250us extra for electricity for the week? That's a new one, never heard of ANY hotel adding a charge for electricity...

Banyan Bay is 1 mile south of town.

What is this electricity charge? At $275 per night I can't imagine they charged an electricity surcharge.

Pretty good on the weight loss!

Hydro is Canadian for electricity.

A few budget hotels charge an electricity fee for rooms if you wanted to use the A/C -- often something like US$10 a night. This used to be fairly common in Belize but is less so these days. Instead budget hotels just have different rates for A/C and non-A/C rooms.

Have never heard of it at an upscale Belize property, though.

Good morning:

Banyan Bay does not charge a utility fee to guests paying a nightly rate at the resort.

Beth Hart

p.s. in the interest of full disclosure, I am employed by Banyan Bay. Feel free to pm me if you need more info.

Hi Amanda:

If Go South's party were charged a utility fee at Banyan Bay, they were not nightly rate paying guests.
