Banana Beach Resort

Coconut Dr., 1.5 miles (2.5 km) south of San Pedro, San Pedro Town, Belize District, Belize

A throwback to days before pillow menus and baffling body scrubs, laid-back Banana Beach is a friendly, casual, though time-worn hotel that's much cheaper than some spots on the island. The original section is built around an interior courtyard greened by happy plants and has one-bedroom suites; a newer section has regular rooms at bargain prices, plus "flex suites" that expand from one to four bedrooms, depending on your needs. Bedspreads in loud seashell patterns seem to have lived long-and-full lives. There are two pools that do the job and make a lively setting for family time. The restaurant, El Divino (named after a beloved staffer who passed away), is a steak house and martini bar. Discounts for four- and five-night stays make rates lower than they appear.
