My wife and I are making our maiden voyage to AC in May 12-18 and we're staying at Cap't Morgans, we'll post a trip report upon our return. I've encountered good and bad feedback about Capt. Morgans on this forum, mostly good. It is located pretty far north of town (3 1/2 miles) and far away from it all, which is exactly what we are looking for!! Hopefully our report will be of help if you haven't made plans by then. Good Luck!!

The problem with Captain Morgan's is that you are way out North. Other than that I've heard mixed reviews of it. I like Paradise Resort Hotel. It fills your "casual" to a tee. Really comfortable place, nice rooms, beautiful site, nice people. Even as prejudiced towards it as I am, I couldn't call it elegant. Maximum room rate with kitchenette runs about $130. Its worth looking into.

Marie, they want a pool. Paradise Resort doesn't fit this time.

Casual but elegant? Hmm, sounds like Victoria House. smile

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Hi Seashell! As I said, elegant it is not. I didn't address the pool issue, true. But, casual and pleasant, it is.

IMHO there is NOT a problem with any of the resorts/hotels/motels on Ambergris. Distance from town makes a difference to some people, but not all.
Pick your place to stay for your first trip and be happy with your choice, and you will be happy.
Then on second trip, repeat same place, or choose a new place. BELIZE IT.

jv, I don't believe that there is a pool at Mata Chica. And I'm pretty sure there is no pool at Portofino either.
