Recession Specials? 3/25-4/1 - 01/24/09 08:30 PM

With the US economy in decline, I've been forced to scale back my accommodations for this year's trip to AC :-(.

I haven't seen the types of deals here that I've been seeing elsewhere, and since I have already booked the Flight, I was wondering who is offering hotel specials?

I'm looking for a two-bed Air Conditioned room for 2 persons, from 3/25/09 to 4/1, budget is $100 or less including taxes.

Would love to hear of any deals. I am checking out this board or i made an email box at belize@lastercorp.com.

Hope to hear from you!

David

Play "lets make a deal" with any of the resorts via e-mail or especially by phone. But less than $100 for two bed AC where have you seen that!

Check in with Jason and Mandy who are going to be doing something interesting at Sundiver. Find them at the Mata Grande Grocery site.
Also Conch Shell always has rates under $100.
Just FYI - unlikely that you will need AC at that time of year - the breezes are quite strong then.

Our "Recession Rates" at Banana Beach start at $100 per night for an air conditioned room, cable TV, two beds per room, private bath with hot water, roundtrip transfers from the San Pedro airstrip or water taxi terminal and breakfast for two included.

while it isnt for everyone, we've used the Cloisters a few times. they offer a one BR condo with a fold out double sofa. includes small kitchen, pool, & a private beachfront balcony. i believe it goes for $95/nite + taxes. the other side is - it is located just north of the toll bridge (across from Reef Village), so you would either need a golf cart, bike or water taxi - not in town, and there is little other services offered there other than the room.

only the bedroom has AC, but we never needed it except in late August (HOT!), and mostly slept on the fold out as it looks over the reef.

it worked great for us, and the view is killer.

Banana's: It looks like it's too far for my old knees to walk several times a day. Would love to if we didn't have to rent a cart at $$ a day.
Spindrift: Have email into them but no reply yet.
Holiday: Same as Spindrift.

Yes I did, sorry thought I answered. I posted somewhere what a cluster ummmmm well you know, it would be to stay there. At least 5 moves total. We could only stay there for 4 days or so and in the middle of our trip. So we would have to start out somewhere else, move there and while there move at least once, then leave there before our trip is up to stay elswhere.

Memory Loss

Heh! Don't say I didn't warn you...

Cheers!

We're staying at Ruby's again. We'll have fun no matter where we stay. I mean, it's just for sleeping and bathing anyway. LOL
