February for 3 couples

February for 3 couples - 11/03/13 09:16 PM

Hey gang. The Otters are making our 7th trip, but this time we're bringing some more baggage.

We have two other couples making their first trips to Belize. We'd like to see what recommendations would be for all 6 of us.

Need 3 separate bedrooms. We would prefer in town, but modestly south is an option. Price range is pretty wide open since we'd be splitting 3 ways.

Ideas?

Bill, try Ana Lausen, cant find her email but its here somewhere

I'd say the Phoenix but, at $675+ 9% a night, you've got to have a fairly fat wallet to stay there. I think that's were E is staying wink

What are your dates?
Posted By: Otteralum

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/03/13 11:43 PM

Ana says that Belizean Reef is booked -- still waiting to hear about other options form her. She's been fantastic in the past for us.

Our dates are firm at 2/12 through 2/17. Had to commit to FF mile dates.

3br/3ba @ Ban Bch might do the trick

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 12:26 AM

I hear tell BB is all booked. May do 3 rooms at Mayan Princess but looking for other options.

Nice place CaptOneIron, but at those prices Otterlum et al can stay at the Phoenix.

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 07:52 AM

Xanadu,perhaps?
Posted By: Otteralum

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 09:48 AM

Wow Capt -- that looks incredible

Xanadu has no availability for our dates and the 3 bedroom units. frown

Casa Caracol?

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 10:16 AM

Rent both Diamond Reef. Condos and have your own exclusive resort? smile

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 10:17 AM

Spindrift???
Posted By: Otteralum

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 10:32 AM

caracol already booked -- would have loved that!

I'll look at Diamond Reef. Where is that located?
Posted By: Otteralum

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 10:41 AM

Spindrift may be a possibility if we go our separate ways. Got a feeling we may wind up with recommending a handful of properties and letting everyone book on their own frown
Posted By: seashell

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 11:11 AM

Just get the three rooms at the Mayan then. Excellent location, decent price and has most everything you could need. Nicer than Spindrift, I think. But there's still Sunbreeze Suites and Blue Tang to check out, yes?

Did you say The Palms was booked too?
Posted By: Otteralum

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 11:16 AM

Thanks all. I should have been making a list, but I believe I checked both Sunbreeze and Blue Tang.

One of our couples is looking at resort properties well north of town and, while I love it up there, Mary and I have been there -- done that. We like staying closer to town so we can walk to Estel's on a whim or check out the ferry schedule, etc.

We love those planning on joining us, but this is our time just once a year for 6 short days -- if they want to go north, good for them. We'll see 'em at dinner at some point smile

Thanks again everyone. Hoping Ana will get back with us soon on other possibilities as well.

Take care

Paradise villas?

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 12:48 PM

Ott, Have you tried Grand Caribe? They have more 3 BR units than anyone else I can think of. Spit 3 ways the price is very doable and the experience there would entice your guests to return.

Each BR has a separate bath and it is only 1 1/2 miles north of the bridge.

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 12:52 PM

If you are thinking of going the 3 separate rooms route, take a look at Aqua Vista Suites...

https://www.facebook.com/AquaVistaBZ
http://aquavistabelize.com/

Brand new, next door to Seven Seas (north) and Wayo's (south), run by Wayo and Dee so the service is super!
Posted By: Otteralum

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 01:32 PM

PV is booked. frown

Grand Caribe is a possibility, but holding out for closer to town. I agree it is a great multiple bedroom property.

I see Aqua Vista is in Boca -- I'll check it out...

Where he stays is entirely up to him and I think we can let him decide what constitutes good value for money. He can contact our property manager if he is interested. I certainly appreciate your input though since you seem to know the Phoenix represents a better deal for him. I wasn't aware of that wisdom.
Posted By: Otteralum

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 02:31 PM

Capt -- that is one great looking property. I think seashell was simply referencing my stated preference for staying in town and comparing prices on that basis.

Will keep your property in mind as I circle back with my posse. Thanks!

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 05:41 PM

Capt. Everyone else was recommending other peoples places, while you were trying to up sell your own - which I believe is against the t&c's of the board yet you do it often. Karma perhaps. Nice place though.

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 06:23 PM

Otter - check your FB messages for an update.
Posted By: seashell

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 06:27 PM

Otterlum, have you tried every permutation of the rental pool at PV? There's something like 4 different management groups and then Cap'n Ron Reef Adventures has a beachfront unit with both up and down suites. Perhaps one unit from each management group would get it done?

And thanks for defending me. You were exactly right of course.

Captoneiron, you had an opportunity there to show diplomacy and grace as normally befits what one seeks in ownership and/or management of an accommodation. Instead you chose another way. Think on that.

Mata Rocks has very nice units too. Have you checked there?

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 08:53 PM

Have you found a place yet? Does it need to be under the same roof as long as it can be on the same grounds. I may be of some help finding you a place in Paradise Villas. PM me

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/04/13 09:18 PM

Get stuffed Phil. If you will look I didn't recommend anything. I simply put a URL on the board. Just what I need some troll trying his best to be important.

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/05/13 02:33 AM

No worries Phil, I'm sure he's referring to American Thanksgiving on the 28th. I'm sure he would never post a URL to his own property as that would be in poor taste.

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/05/13 10:23 AM

Thanks for the PMs and more ideas here -- have some more ideas to follow-up with this morning. Much appreciated.
Posted By: CaptOneIron

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/05/13 11:08 AM

Not in as poor taste as you and your Phil sticking your nose into everyone's business without invitation. And Phil's remark about my doing this all the time is not only false it is insulting. I suggest you both somehow try and get a life somewhere other than a simple internet device. Happy Thanksgiving (and there is really only one - USA) to you both!

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/05/13 08:19 PM

Okay gang -- I misread the Caribbean Villas website. Looks like that's where we'll be -- one 2-bedroom and one 1-bedroom.

Thanks for everyone's help. I think this is going to be the perfect balance of those folks looking for seclusion and the Otters who are crazy party animals.

Take care!

Re: February for 3 couples - 11/05/13 08:45 PM

Good choice! I don't stay there but do enjoy dropping by the little beach bar from time to time, having a drink and a bite to eat. The "beach" area is very pleasant.

Glad you found a good spot. Lewis at Catamaran beach bar makes the best iced coffee since Island Perk.
