Manatee Lodge Review
This colonial-era lodge, just feet from the Southern Lagoon and surrounded by flowers, has a stunning setting, though the facilities do not live up to its location. With its fading white facade like something out of a Graham Greene novel and sometimes lackadaisical service, the lodge isn't what it could be, but in minutes you can be on a boat looking for manatees or on a deserted beach. Rooms on the second floor are simple but have polished wood floors and views of the lagoon. The wood-paneled dining room serves Belizean and American fare.
