Website of the Day

Barrier Reef Hotel, 1996
A website from the past, The Barrier Reef Hotel provides a wide range of services. A restaurant, cocktail lounge, and hair salon are nestled in the hotel proper. From here you can plan your trips, relax in the lounge, cool off in the pool or just enjoy the peace and quite of this lovely village and its people. Barrier Reef Hotel is right on Front Street in San Pedro Town, on Ambergris Caye. The restaurant features seafood dinners every night, and deli sandwiches and pizza are available too. Don't forget the stewed chicken, rice and beans! A delightful place to make your main eatery while on the island.

Mr. Alfred Serrano tending bar at the Barrier Reef Hotel, 1979
We also called him '50.' Also, Lee Flowers is on the far right.


I spent a lot of my money in this place..Happy days :-)

I remember picking the laquer(sp?) ..I see that picture and I smell the room..feel the bar..WILD!

when I was allowed to work the bar wayyyyy back...Serrano taught me bartending tips and he was such a great guy!

He was so nice, my parents came to visit, Serano was at the airport. He came over picked up my Dad and Said it's" Papa Brown" My Dad was a little startled but laughed about it for years.

Serrano used to give me advice about men - I always felt he was my protector

He took me to his home town for Garafuna! That's Sneaker Lips in the back rt.

That's the Navigator Bar at the old Barrier Reef Hotel where the Heritage Bank is today...Serano was a gentle giant! RIP. Great memories.

Great guy famous for making the best cow foot soup in San Pedro. He hosted many PUP parties at his place. I was fortunate to teach his children at high school.

Lee Flowers...he may be in Chicago with his mom but last I heard he was floating around the US here and there doing nothing

Sneaker Lips back right also.... Bushmaster, Cool Spot.

He was a great teacher when I was learning to bartend at the Barrier Reef

He had the best Garifuna Day celebration at his bar and Linda Carter dancing was a highlight.

Serrano, good guy; helped us a lot when we started the Jade!
