Which one has the better beach? Do any of these places have lounge chairs on the beach, not just at the pool??
Thanks for the info!

I recently stayed at Belizean Shores. The beach is small, but clean and groomed daily. Lots of grasses in the water, so the end of their pier is where you need to swim and snorkel from. Wading wouldnt be so nice cause of all the grass, but they sure do have lounge chairs there and plenty of sun! Um, I should mention that they have a pet morray eel that swims their beach and they feed, daily. confused I cant comment on Banyan Bay, I only got a quick look at the beach there when we were doing our resort bar hopping, so, I cant say that I can trust my memory or my vision that day. laugh

Banyan Bay has a beautiful beach and oodles of loungers on the beach. The beach even has waves because it is in front of the Mar De Tumbo Cut.

Because Banyan Bay has waves I'm guessing there is not the sea grass so you can walk in from the shore??

Not as much sea grass at Banyan, but you'll find most of the beaches on Ambergris have their share. They are both nice resorts.

Don't know anything about Banyan, but my husband and I stayed at Belizean Shores last May. Itís a beautiful resort especially since we had an oceanfront, 2nd floor unit. Can't say anything at all negative about it. Also has this REALLY great pool, and I'm not a pool person. Has a couple of coin washer/dryers as well.

Sighhh ... what a great way to start the day, sitting out on balcony watching the morning wake up.

Wasn't too impressed with the restaurant though. We only ate there twice, it was only so-so. Maybe a 5 on a scale of 1 - 10. (and that would be for the food, staff was friendly and the dining area nice and open.)

They have a corner in the dining room with a computer you can use. Came in handy as my husband is a Pastor and he had to keep in touch with a couple of folks.

Have a wonderful vacation smile
