St. George's Caye Resort in Saint George's Caye, Belize
St. George's Caye Resort is situated on some of the country’s most historic shores – the area was Belize’s original capital, the site of clashes between shipwrecked British sailors-turned-pirates and Spanish conquistadors. There are rumors of a sarcophagus still buried on resort property. Guests get a taste of island flavor in cabanas adorned in rich, native hardwoods and coconut fronds, a design that conceals them in the surrounding thickets of palms. Attentive staff are especially helpful in arranging personalized dive itineraries.
Commandeer a kayak and paddle toward the mangrove forest to the left of the swimming beach. Explore the river-like inlets, rustling up herons, frigate birds and egrets from the bushes. Back in the open ocean, take a dip and swim among schools of reef fish. Nap in a sun-speckled hammock. Sip on rum punch as lime-marinated grouper sizzles on the grill.

Reviews for St. George's Caye Resort
St. George's Caye Resort is the place to go for a relaxing stay on an island of Belize - only 20 minutes by boat from Belize City. We had a beachy cabana on the ocean front but there is no bad cabana there. All are within walking distance to the beach, pool, and lodge where you dine. Food is well prepared with variety in the menu. The staff are amazing! The staff are there to help you and will even climb a coconut tree if you want to drink from a coconut. They do have excursions off the island of all types for you to enjoy. Diving and snorkeling are a big thing there but you don 't have to partake if you don't want to. They have Hobie Cats that you can sail and ocean kayaks to take out. You can go fishing as well. Or you can lounge at poolside. Great place for adults to go. Met a lot of really nice people staying there.

My husband and I went to St. George's to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We have never done a trip quite like this and after reading a few negative reviews we were nervous. All of that went away from the moment we arrived and saw the accommodations. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. The over water bungalow was not a Tahitian dream but neither was the price tag. They are clean and quaint. The staff, especially Jose, was all delightful. My husband is a joker and Jose gave it right back to him. Whether we were on the deck of our cabana, by the pool or at breakfast, he made sure we had everything we needed which most of the time was a drink in our hand :) The food was good, the scenery to die for, the kayaks fun, exploring the island awesome. Not much more to say other than if you're considering going here, DO IT! We LOVED it!!
I travel often and this resort totally exceeded my expectations in every way! What a beautiful, pristine, private property only 20 minutes via boat from Belize City. I loved the details--from the decoratively cut lime on all cocktails to the daily raking of my cabana footpath. I loved getting the pre trip emails, especially the ones skiing for my favorite beverages that would be stocked in my frig upon arrival. On the initial boat ride over, I met a couple who were on their way back for a 4th visit. I then knew I had hit the jackpot! Apart from the peaceful serenity and amazing views, the staff at St Georges Caye resort are all so lovely and accommodating. I count many of them among new friends. As a single traveler, it was also fun to get to know many of the other guests while there. The dive masters were so cute and such fun! I had never dived before, but now am hooked! I can't wait to return to Paradise! Totally spectacular in every way!

For our honeymoon, my wife and I decided to come to Belize. We decided to spend the first part of our trip inland at the Mariposa Jungle Lodge near San Antonio (which I give 5 stars as well). That was the jungle/adventure part of our trip (Mayan ruins at Caracol and the ATM Cave); St. George's Caye was the "relax" part of our vacation. And it was absolutely fantastic. The place is stunningly beautiful. The water is so blue and the beach is beautiful. We stayed in an over-water cabana, and I have no complaints at all. They are very nice and comfortable and, not to mention, the view is out of this world. The food is excellent and is served family-style with the other guests. We also did a private dinner on our last night (you can request a private dinner at no extra cost). All of the staff were great, from Jahnene to the bartenders to the housekeepers. I can only speak to one excursion offered by the resort--we went snorkeling one afternoon. That was a great experience, by the way, and I totally recommend it. Instead of going snorkeling with 100 people like the group that we saw from a nearby cruise boat, this was private--we went with two other couples and a very knowledgeable guide. The reef and the wildlife were beautiful and it was certainly worth the $90 for the both of us. The rest of the time on the island, we lounged by the beach, swam, and did the free activities (kayaking, paddle boarding). Overall, it was a perfect ending to our honeymoon and I would definitely recommend this resort to others who are looking for a relaxing time in paradise! Thanks to all of the staff again for making our honeymoon special! You guys rock!

St. George's Caye was the perfect seaside retreat for our honeymoon. My husband and I had a couple key points we wanted to hit while on our honeymoon. We wanted a little bit of beach, adventure, and relaxation. We booked with St. George's Caye because they we able to offer all of these things. We split our trip between St. Georges's on the water and Mariposa in the jungle. We stayed at Mariposa first and then transportation was arranged for us to get to the island. We got to see an American crocodile in the water on the boat ride there! We were greeted Jeanine at the dock with a cold beverage and woke up to fresh coffee and orange juice delivered to our room. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were always great! Saturday night barbecue was a lot of fun and included a bonfire. Meals were family style and we loved getting to know the other guests. While we were there, we had a nice time taking the kayaks out into the mangroves, walking around the island, and going scuba diving with Jose. These were some of the most laid back dives we've been on and were able to see some of the great Caribbean reef we have heard so much about. We stayed in the overwater cabanas and couldn't recommend another way. We didn't have any issues with the breeze. It always seemed to be breezy and never stuffy or too hot in our room even without the AC running. All of the staff at St. George's were wonderful. Everyone was super nice and welcoming. We hope to go back some day soon!
