Victoria House in Ambergris Caye, Belize

Victoria House epitomizes laid-back barefoot elegance for a perfectly peaceful Caribbean retreat. Nestled on a pristine strip of white-sand beach overlooking sparkling azure waters, the storied hotel was among the first to put Ambergris Caye on the map more than 30 years ago. The polished property is located within close proximity of San Pedro, yet far enough away to retain its sense of serenity. Bright rooms are housed in a score of picturesque plantation-style casitas featuring wrap-around shared balconies and grouping around two pools with views of the verdant gardens or ocean. Colorful Belizean-inspired frescoes adorn the walls while all sleeping quarters are chicly appointed with handcrafted furnishings made from native woods and rattan chairs. Amenities include air conditioning, mini bars, in-room safes, and stylish bathrooms offering plush bathrobes. In order to preserve the property’s peaceful vibe, most rooms do not have televisions, and complimentary wireless Internet access is only available around the pool and the main lobby.

Explore the 8-acre perimeter of palm-tree studded, beautifully manicured gardens or stroll along the sugary stretch of beach fronting the hotel at leisure. Busy bodies can head down the hotel’s private jetty to the on-site dive shop, arguably among the best on the island where staff arranges for snorkeling, fishing and scuba diving trips to multiple nearby sites. If in the mood for a trip into town, guests can rent golf carts or hop on one of the complimentary bicycles. During the day, most guests prefer to unwind gravitating toward one of the sun-drenched poolside decks or cooling off with a chilled Belikin beer under the beachside bar’s Palapa-thatched roof. Dinner at highly regarded resident Palmilla Restaurant is a must while at Victoria House. The skilled chef dishes up a delightful Mesoamerican blend of cookery like roasted butternut enchiladas and cashew-crusted grouper with chili sauce. Claim a slice of tropical paradise at elegant Victoria House on the Belizean island one mile from the world’s second largest barrier reef.

To be clear, this resort is on a beautifully manicured waterfront stretch. It is one of those properties that has a longer term classic reputation, people have known it to be good for years. But It is up against a competitive lodging mark that appears to be set fairly low on Ambergris. The welcome at the front desk is minimal, and those folks appeared to be some of the senior people on property. We got the distinct feeling that this resort is resting on its laurels. Service levels were largely indifferent. You could get what you wanted but it really lacked that effort that sets the great resorts apart. It isn’t that the staff wasn’t friendly, they were, and they were happy to fill a request if you asked. It seemed more likely that they have good people but perhaps weaker leadership and management. Breakfast was horrifically slow. The other tell that they seem to be milking their reputation is the somewhat aging physical buildings/fixtures. Interiors aren’t updated, and it sure looks like a good bit of deferred capital expenditure around this place. If management was paying half as much attention to other details as they do to Trip Advisor reviews and raking the beach, this place would be spectacular. It was relaxing, it was a nice place to stay, you will have plenty of fun. For your money, we just didn’t think they were earning it. Amazingly when you check out, they get you a ride to the airport but don’t really ask you how your stay was or remind you to come back. To be fair, we didn’t complain while we stayed there, so it was far from terrible. There are some newer resorts and lodging groups building in the area, the competitive bar will be lifted, and this place will at some point have to endure a shake up. The setting is really pretty though, so surely it will endure long term.

Service at this resort is lacking for a luxury property. Check in was less than special, when you have a paper pushed at you and they say fill this out. No warm greeting to be offered. They had some project going on in the water which had 4 or 5 men hauling wheelbarrows of dirt a few feet from out “private “ pool all day everyday. No apology for the inconvenience. Our room was left unlocked by housekeeping while we were out. In general, just disappointing service. They certainly did not act like they were happy to have you on property. It seems as if they are resting on their laurels.

Victoria House Resort & Spa has several types of Accommodations, from rooms in the main building to villas. In our case, we had booked the only room avaible at the time, and when we arrived they gave us an upgrade to one of the casitas, absolutely charming. These tropical casitas have their private verandah with their hammock and all face the Caribbean Sea. Our unit had a queen bed, closet with more than enough hangers, a chest of drawers and a couple of chairs. In what refers to room features, it had air conditioning, ceiling fan, both in room and bathroom, bar,safe, bath robes, carry basket with beach towels and one gallon botlle of water, daily replaced. Good wifi speed in room and restaurant. Victoria House has private beach and several pools, two of them of common use and the others are exclusively for the villas, gym, spa and gift shop. Restaurant and bar are excellent, both in terms of food and drinks. Free transfers to and from airport and ferry port. The staff is amazing. We had a great stay.

on the water away from town but with easy access. great staff, nice and clean average size rooms. breakfast was well done. some odor on rare occasion from the sea grass washed up on neighboring property. tours/excursions leave directly from their dock.

Beautiful resort, extremely well maintained, and fantastic restaurant. Our room was spacious and comfortable, especially the bed. Loved their custom made shampoo, conditioner, and lotion!! Just an fyi: None of the rooms have phones and some don't have tvs - we didn't mind this at all, but it might be an issue for others. Fantastic location in San Pedro for those who appreciate quiet serenity. Loved that we could use the courtesy bicycles they provided to explore. Also appreciate the fact that they had courtesy transportation into downtown San Pedro and courtesy pick up and drop off from the water taxi or airport. Continental breakfast was truly very light- only 1 muffin and 1 piece of toast if you get the combo per person, along with a delicious yogurt parfait and fruits. View was insane and the weather was perfect. The only thing to note or plan for is the sea grass all along the shoreline, which prevents any swimming except a small area designated near the dock. Staff that were particularly helpful, friendly, and attentive were Sarika and Carmen! Thank you for your warm and friendly attitude. Antonio also did a nice orientation of the property when we arrived. Curtis drove us from the airport taxi to the resort and was very friendly and welcoming. Javier in the dive shop was also friendly and went out of his way to remind my wife to get a copy of her PADI information. Aldi was also very sweet and helpful at the front desk in giving us the best possible rate for a room we needed to stay on our last night. Overall, great location, excellent property, delicious food. Gave it 4 stars because some of the other staff, particularly at the front desk were not as welcoming.
