I like to stay at Exotic Caye Beach resort. Go to www.belizeisfun.com. It's a short 10 - 15 minute walk into town, depending on how many "refreshment" stands you stop at. Monkey Bites is located on site and is open from 7-3:00 daily (typically). Crazy Canucks is on site as well. Fun, fun bar that many of the locals hang out at. Don and Carol are the resort managers and are expats from Canada. They are super and will accommodate your every need.

Also, if you book now, I believe you will get a special. Go to their site and check it out.

There are a ton of places to stay in AC. Whichever place you stay, I'm sure you will have an awesome time. Go and live the dream. Perhaps you too will get the AC bug that has caught so many of us.

PS If you'd like additional pictures of the resort, email me at [email protected] I'd be happy to share with you what I have.

Thanks Fluffy, we'll check it out. I'm sure that the "two hour walk" to town will be just fine,

Hi stonepro... We love The Palms. Close in yet quiet and very "neat and clean" apartments with nice kitchens and large verada's. No need to rent a cart unless you want to explore the island for a day. No restaurant/bar on premises (which keeps noise down) but within a few minutes walk there are many choices for food and beverage. The staff is very helpful and can arrange any activities for you. Hope you have a great trip!

I have to agree w/ Scott. We stayed at the Palms earlier this mth and loved it! It's close to town and nice property. It's right next to Ramon's and the beach area is clean and great.

Stonepro--i stayed at Corona Del Mar in April. LOVED IT!! great price, very nice room with ac(and ceiling fan) and fridge, friendly staff, very personable, quiet and close to everything. If needed they can book trips for you as well (they booked 3 day trips for me and had a great time on each one and with small groups).when I get to go back, will definately stay there again.

Sunbreeze is my place of choice, close to town.

On your first trip, in or close to town is best.

I agree with indygal ....

If you enjoy going out nightly, and are planning on eating most of your meals "out" so that you can try different establishments, then you may want to pick a location close to town. Otherwise you'll need to use the water taxis, a golf cart or a bike to get to town.

Last year we chose to stay north of the cut after doing lots of reading here, and decided upon Belizean Shores, as we needed more R&R. This year, we chose a bit closer to town and stayed at Coral Bay Villas. Had great vacations both times.

Planning is half the fun!

I preferred the Sunbreeze right across from the airport and a lovely resort. Not to mention right in town.. shocked )

We're staying at Mata Rocks in February. Never been there but loved the location next door to Banana Beach and the reviews say its clean, clean, clean. Small property 16 rooms, free bikes and continental breakfest 1 mile south of town.

Another option is renting a condo or beach house, there are some very nice properties on the market.

My heartfelt recommendation is Xanadu- we just got back from a week there. Great property, terrific amenities for the price, well-kept, super and attentive staff, FREE bikes, store 1 block away, quick walk up the beach to restaurants and bars and water taxi and stores, cool and comfy 2 BR suites w/ fully loaded kitchens and COLD fridges, great pool, quiet beachfront and a pier where you can comfortably await your daily excursion boat in the shade and breeze. Please see my trip report and pix link posted yesterday for more details. You may wish to email Susan for pricing and availability [email protected] or check out their web site at http://xanaduresort-belize.com/.
