Sounds like Las Palmas Hotel (used to be Nestor's) in Corozal Town, while still a hotel (and still for sale for US$1.65 million) is moving toward becoming an assisted living center or even a nursing/retirement home.

The owner, Dr. Rublee, a retired chiropractor, is offering 24-hour assisted living services for seniors on the lower level, including meals, entertainment, transport, some medical care, exercise, etc. for US$3K the first month and then US$2K per per month. La Palmas also is offering a retirement program without the medical care aspect, presumably for lower cost.

Previously, Banana Bank Lodge near Belmopan was talking about going into a similar line of retirement living care.

Maybe this is a way to convert some of the underutilized hotels into more productive assets.

from a friend....

This particular case aside, the concept in general is an excellent idea. There is already a huge market and it will continue to grow in the years to come. I was just back down in Florida and stayed with some friends in Palm Beach for a few days after camping out in the Everglades.

That area has a huge population of elderly and there are many jobs created not just in these residences. I saw lots of nurses/personal assistants escorting people around, even in the Seminole-operated casino. All the stores offer delivery services, I saw lots of pharmacy delivery trucks for instance. Restaurants were often loaded with elderly and they all do senior discounts during the week. There are all sorts of spin-off jobs created. Noticed quite a few sugar daddies financing young ladies at the casino and elsewhere. We saw one old white guy, must have been in his 70's, seeing a much younger black cutie off out front of the casino. Gave her a big wet kiss and told her he would would see her the next day at his place.

Plenty of money to made off the retirement crowd in Belize if people get serious about it.
