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
This was our resort. If traveling with a few couples some can share the large villa or u can do each couple to their own cabanas. The food was amazing, the staff was friendly and entertaining... Meals and one rum punch a day included... spa was great rate and soooooo relaxing... Outings were good value too. Since we were only there 4 days, we didnâ€™t do any of the excursion to the ruins or other islands... They have free grab and go activities at the resort, hobby cats, kayaks, paddle boards... snorkeling and fishing supplies can all be done right off the resort... We did do the 2 hour snorkeling outing that was AMAZING. $45 per person and it was unforgettable!!! I loved that lunch and dinner were communal.. everyone cleaned up after a day in the son and ate a bourgeois 4 course meal at a long table, sharing stories about their day of adventure or from where they come from... also comparing travel stories for future adventures. It was beyond perfect! Easy to get to as well! Southwest flights- we left STL at 1030 am had short layover in Houston (just enough time to hit up duty free and get a preflight margarita) Then we had a 2 hr 20 minute flight to Belize city... our driver from the hotel met us there, with cold beer and water... drove us to the marine about 20 minutes away with a short run done of the culture and history in Belize City... you see enough to know you donâ€™t really want to spend any more time there... we got to the marina just before sunset... and they take you by boat the St. Georgeâ€™s Caye... itâ€™s about a 20-25 minute boat ride... we had calm waters and no wind... a sunset over glassy waters... and pulled up to the gorgeously lit cabanas... Oliver was there awaiting us with a fruit drink đźŤą and gave us a tour. The tour brought us passed Lucy at the bar where she added some rum to our fruit drinks đźŤą We then were escorted to cabana 1, which we think is the best Cobana. đźŹ† Because the position of the bed to the windows and breeze right off the water....We freshened up, and went to the Lounge for our first meal... it was amazing! There are no tvs, no phones and only WiFi in the main building. When we returned to our cabana that night the weather was perfect so we turned off the a/c and opened the windows... we fell asleep to the sounds of the water below our cabin washing up on the beach beside up and the calm breeze blowing through the thatching on the roof of our hut, and every now and then a song of a local gull. Gabby in the spa was AMAZING. I had the best salt scrub ever, my last day there. I really just canâ€™t say enough about it. I canâ€™t wait to go back!

I stayed for a week with my boyfriend in January, and we had an amazing time! We were picked up from the airport and taken to the island where we were greeted with island rum punches and smiling faces. The staff are friendly and helpful and the resort is beautiful and clean. Snorkeling and scuba diving trips are offered as well as excursions to the mainland. We also loved to kayak and paddle board into the nearby mangroves. What I perhaps enjoyed most about this resort is the social atmosphere. Meals are served family style and are delicious! I would highly recommend staying here! I know we cannot wait to go back!

I traveled here with a friend in early September and I have to say that I had an absolutely amazing time. Ended up getting the island / jungle combo package and it really worked out since the jungle partner resort they set us up with was absolutely phenomenal, I'd even say it spoiled us a little bit with our expectations towards the island. Now I don't want that to be interpreted that St George's was in anyway bad, but it does look a bit worn and could use with some modernizing and a fresh coat of paint. Still, the island itself is incredibly gorgeous and the overwater bungalows, while a bit cramped, offered us a great spot on the dock to relax and look out at the ocean with drinks in hand, which was pretty hard to beat. Lost a couple days to just relaxing in the hammock with a book and drink. If you do go, I absolutely recommend getting a package that includes the local liquors, each of which are very good and offers a wide range of drinks to get at the bar that's already included in the package, but they tend to make them a bit weak, so make sure to get a double if you like it less sugary. Now the food was amazing in my opinion, each day you get set up with a breakfast and dinner made on site done family style, which is great, because we got to meet a lot of people I don't think we otherwise would have which lead to fun trips off island with new friends. Now, the one thing to be aware of us there are a lot, and I mean A LOT of sand files, so be prepared with bug spray, and be prepared for it to not work amazingly well. Even covered in the stuff I felt rather eaten alive. My biggest complaint would probably be the lack of torches or something to keep the bugs away during dinner. There were also plenty of activities to take part in as well as some stuff on the island itself, such as paddleboards and kayaks to just go around and explore. I ended up doing a day of diving and the San Pedro Slam, which ended up being of the most fun things I've ever done with a bunch of people we met during our stay. Now those can get a bit pricey, but it's kind of expected with this style of vacation. Overall, it was really one of the best times I've had in my life and definitely would recommend it. As I said, my biggest issue I had at the end of it was the flies (which we had heard hits that portion of the country the worst) and the worn look of the resort itself, which from pictures and stuff seemed to be hit pretty hard by the previous years hurricanes, so if that's the worst thing that happens, then that's pretty minor in my opinion.

Being met at the dock by a smiling hostess with drinks was our first impression, and it just got better from there. The staff were the best I have ever seen. The hostess, Janeen, would literally do anything for you. I had experienced difficulty snorkeling on previous vacations, and when I told her, she stopped everything she was doing to take me down to the swim shop and find a mask that fit. Wilbur took us out snorkeling on the reef, and we were allowed to explore to our heart's content---no time limit. Oliver took us out sailing and entertained us with stories of the history of the island. Leo the bartender is so easygoing and fun to talk to, and he's an outstanding artist too! We were in a cabana over the water. The cabanas are close together, but I rarely heard the neighbors. They are clean and appear brand new. I loved the fact that there was no tv or Wifi in the cabanas; being unplugged is soothing! The resort serves meals around one long table, which gives you the chance to get to know the 20 or so other guests from around the world. I can't think of one thing I liked least!
We stayed in an oceanfront cabana for 5 nights. The overwater Cabana looks cool, but we heard reports from other guests that it was warmer and had more bugs, especially noseums. Our experience was excellent. Slept every night with windows open and the ocean breeze was quite pleasant. This resort is remote and if you are looking to disconnect, itâ€™s perfect. Often times you are forced to just relax with a book on the beach. There are kayaks, hobby cats etc and 2 daily snorkel trips out to the reef. I snorkeled 3 times and our guide Wilber was incredible. He showed us spotted eagle rays, sting rays, giant sea turtles which I got to pet, barracudas, reef sharks, dolphins, flounder, lion fish and millions of other tropical fish. We dove for conch shells and brought a couple back. My husband went on an all day guided fishing trip and brought back snapper, grouper, horse-eye jack, mackerel and barracuda. The divers at the Resort brought back lion fish everyday that they killed by spear fishing. Our amazing chef cooked all this up and provided us fresh fish nightly as â€śappetizersâ€ť. The food was great an the Resort was wonderful about accommodating special diets. For example I donâ€™t eat red meat and was substituted lobster or shrimp for any meal that contained it. Last, there is a different excursion offered everyday. We went on two- the zip/cave tubing adventure and a day in Belize City shopping and visiting Alton Ha. Both times Cornell was our private guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave us the VIP treatment. He avoided the masses of cruise ship passengers so our experiences were more intimate and took us to small local restaurants that offered more authentic local fare. I felt like we experienced a truer since of Belize not just the tourist highlights. Loved having the community dining. Everyone we met was so nice and from all different demographics and multiple countries. We all just wanted to enjoy the paradise St Georgeâ€™s offered. This is a very special place and we cannot wait to return.
