I spent part of my honeymoon at Ramons in February and have mixed feelings about it. The grounds, pool, and pier are all really nice, but I thought the room was fairly small and the food at the restaraunt was pretty blah for the amount of money you spend.
I'm pretty sure on my next trip that I will have just as much fun at another place for half the price.

I don't know how the price of Victoria House compares to Ramons but it is very FRIST CLASS. White linen tablecloths, etc. You might want to check it out.

Paluxy:

You sound like you'll fit in just fine! My hubby and I looked for the same thing and found it right on AC. Can't help but go back time after time. Enjoy it!

And by the way 1st time I went - I took 3 pair of shorts, 5 shirts, 7 bathing suits adn one sun dress. Wore 1 pair of shorts for 10 days (cut offs) and felt obligated to wear the dress so I put it on for the trip hiome! HA I'm always over packing!

Ramons, I have stayed there a number of times over the years, Yes it is "Touristy" as far as that goes for San Pedro. It is probably one of the places that caters more to the first time tourist to Belize than any where else in San Pedro. See their web site. Flags on the beach, free form shaped wading pool, Purple Parrot bar, gift shop, well landscaped grounds with lots of flowers, little titi type huts with ac, cute but small and close together, unimpressive food at the restaurant. No it is not Cancun with high rise hotels but more crowd at Ramon's than anywhere else. Seems very commercialized for Belize. You might research the web before going for other possiblilties.

aqtpie2-yaaaahooo!!!! The less I have to pack the better! I talked w/Johnathan at Journey's End today & I think I am leaning towards them.
KBG-Thx, I believe u r right, I just don't get that I have to be there feeling about Ramon's, Journeys End is about the same price and seems alot more private. They have free kyaks and a ferry that runs every hour to town even at night so when we get the urge to we can mingle!!
