Bellevue Hotel in the 70's

Now it is just a vacant lot, many of us have so much wonderful memories of the ol good Bellevue. Photo by George Villanueva (I was a bartender there back in the late 70s).

An rare photo of the old Bellevue Hotel and Restaurant. You can also see it on the vintage postcard below in the upper right hand side. Lots of add on since this early photo.

Bellevue Hotel
The Bellevue Hotel is situated on Belize City harbour. It was originally built as a family home in the early 1900s, the site being selected for its proximity to shops, government offices and other fine residences, and the direct access afforded by the harbour to the cayes. Today, almost a century later, that home has been operated as a hotel by our family for nearly forty years.

The Bellevue Hotel in Belize City

The Bellevue Hotel was situated on the Belize City harbor. It was originally built as a family home in the early 1900s, the site being selected for its proximity to shops, government offices and other fine residences, and the direct access afforded by the harbor to the cayes. They even had a swimming pool in the back! Almost a century later, that home was been operated as a hotel by one family for nearly forty years.

The Bellevue was run very much like a home, with attention to detail and personalized service being our watchwords. Over the years they catered to dignitaries, diplomats, businessmen, vacationers and even the royal family.

Aldrian Williams: Love real memories used to go hangout on the back varanda and drink while watching the boats and always talk about we never believed we would be up there when we were kids passing by.

Mike Heusner: My favourite hang out, first for the boating in the 50s and for the bar/club in the 70s.

Gregory Morrison: Skippy Fuller and his wife managed that hotel.

Michelle Rivana Buckley: Love Mr. Dinga, Homer, and Lisa. We held our prom for BTC there in 1988. I was in charge of our prom with a few classmates and I asked him if he would allow us to use the dance area and he sure did. He gave it to us as a present and it sure was the best. Best signature rum punch ever! It was the stomping ground for the band called the Professionals.

Luz Hunter: I worked as a bartender in the upstairs bar during the day while the downstairs bar was being renovated after hurricane Greta destroyed it in 1978. I was one of the daytime bartenders and sometimes weekends after the downstairs bar re-opened. Wall to wall people in there on weekends! Also Manuel Acosta and the Bellevue band. Richard Ysaguirre, a very talented piano player was also one of the people I knew from my day.

Romel Perdomo: Manuel Acosta stayed back and managed with Roger years after.

Jacqui Bunce: I worked as a Receptionist in the early 80s. Mrs Dinger was like my 2nd mum. Miss her, Roger Dinger , Claudette Bell, Soli Castillo, Bernard Bahadur and all the other good friends I made there.

Bill Eze: Glenn Cambell beat up poor Rudy Cabral at Bellevue.. somebody tell rudebwai dat all dem celebrities gay n Rudy made his move.. po ting..
