I agree with the advise to check out Victoria House. Think it is comparable and does have a pool,lovely grounds, convenience to town. It is a very popular spot with honeymooners.

Neither Portofino nor Mata Chica is 11 miles from San Pedro !!
Mata Chica is about 5.5 Miles from San Pedro and Portofino is about 6.25 miles.

In answer to your question about the need for a pool, do a search on "beach". Since you'll be inside the reef there's alot of sea grass and not much wave action. Some people don't like swimming in those conditions so a pool is a good option. The beaches are pretty, but not what you'd see on Caribbean islands usually.

Now I am thinking maybe we should look into Victoria House. Are the casitas nice? I would like to stay in the Honeymoon suite, but it looks a little expensive. They have a great honeymoon package tho.

Casitas are very nice. Honeymoon suite is also very nice but not worth the extra bucks (IMHO)

OH indecision!! I just want to visit Belize/Ambergris Caye. I have been researching for so long and the sad thing is...I'm not getting married until AUGUST! I want to lay on the beach, visit San Pedro, see all that there is to see... and I'm starting to sound cheesy laugh

Then Victoria House it is. There. No more indecision and meets all of your criteria and more. Enjoy.

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