Fodor's Review

Nearly every hotel on Ambergris Caye claims that it can arrange fishing trips, but this resort really has the best angling resources, plus beautiful suites and grounds as well. Loosely described as a "fishing camp," the main lodge is actually a handsome colonial house with comfortable, if not luxurious, rooms and a swimming pool. Adjoining the lodge in two groupings, each with a pool, are deluxe one-, two- and three-bedroom villas. You can enjoy a fine meal, served family

style in the dining room, or a drink on the veranda. Many guests arrive as part of a fishing package; prices start at around BZ$3,550 per person, double occupancy, for three nights (two full days of fishing), including fishing guide, boat, meals, local drinks, and taxes. The resort has a fly-fishing shop and offers fly-fishing lessons. Diving and other packages are also available. Complimentary bikes and kayaks are on offer, as well.
