Victoria House is absolutely lovely. There are several first rate resorts on Ambergris Caye. Check your favorite guide book for a list.

I have a question about the Victoria house. What is the difference between a plantation room and a plantation suite. Can anyone who has stayed at VH help??

The plantation rooms are the standard rooms which are over the restaurant / office area. They feature a shared veranda

The plantation suites are in separate buildings each rooom has its own verandah

We stayed in a casita and liked it very much. Spoke to others staying in the suites and standard rooms. No one had any complaints.

you can see some pictures of exteriors here homepages.nyu.edu/~pmf2

enjoy!

Thanks

Great pictures.......any more? We just booked the Victoria House. It's pricey compared to the Palms which we stayed at in May. I hope it's worth it.

Is it an easy walk to the Mata Rocks bar?

I would think that if one liked The Palms a place like Villas at Banyan Bay, Banana Beach or Xanadu, all condotels, would be a more likely choice than Victoria House. Victoria House is great, but it's a full-service resort and most of its units, except for the owners suites, are just rooms, not large apartments as you find at the condotels.

Victoria House is a beautiful property but it is nothing like the Palms. You will find it is strictly a hotel atmosphere. I have stayed at the Palms and found it to be lovely but then I discovered Xanadu. I really do think it's just the best. Do try to check it out for your next visit and enjoy the romance of Victoria House.

I always thought that Victoria house was one of the loveliest properties on the island, but when we were there in June I noticed they were putting up a very intimidating fence around the property. I think it lost some of it's charm with that nasty barbed wire fence stuff. It looks like a compound now..... What was the reasoning for this?

Hello Debbie,
Brent here from Victoria House.
I'm afraid we can't take credit for the fence, it's actually on the property of our neighbors' to the north.
While the fence does appear to be a continuation of the Victoria House entryway we had no input as to its design or construction.
It stretches in a line from the VH entryway along Coconut Drive to the northern extent of the neighboring property.
Apparently some of the fruits and vegetables he's growing on the property were being "liberated" during the night - this was his solution to the problem.
Since your visit in June it has been painted shades of pastel pink and green.
We are not a huge fan of barbwire either, and a number of people have mistakenly assumed that the fence was ours...
