There are many hotels you can choose from that you will enjoy. Everyone has their favorites. My favorite is Banana Beach. The price is great, it's very nice and far enough south of town that it's pretty quiet. They have an on-site travel shop to book whatever tour you'd like to go on. www.bananabeach.com
. As for tours, again, many different ones that everyone has their favorites. If you're a diver, go on the Blue Hole trip. The Blue Hole itself isn't the highlight for me. The highlight of this trip is Half Moon Caye and the wall and aquarium dives. If you're a snorkeler, that trip is also very good. You can also snorkel at the Hol Chan Cut, Shark Ray Alley and Mexico Rocks. An afternoon fishing/snorkel beach barbeque is awesome. You'll also want to do some mainland tours. I love Lamanai but Altun Ha is also good. I've never been on the cave tubing, zip lining or the zoo but have heard they are all awesome.
