Fodor's Expert Review Costa Blu Dive and Beach Resort

6.5 miles (10.5 km) north of town, Ambergris Caye, Corozal, Belize

With a seaside beach bar, pool, spa services, and on-site restaurant, Costa Blu makes a great resting place between your marine tours. Diving is the thing here, but even if you’re not a seeker of the deep, other outings like sailing, kayaking, and mainland tours abound (or stay domestic and stick to the pool). Costa Blu works with local dive shops and enlists some of Ambergris’s most reputable guides. The airy restaurant's menu, ranging from mozzarella sticks to coconut curry, is ho-hum. Costa Blu's parrotfish colors and aqua accents invoke the ocean at every turn. All rooms have an efficiency kitchen. This is one of five Sandy Point Resorts operations, so it benefits from seasoned management, but it also has less personality than independent resorts.

  • the warm staff will call you by name


  • not a huge bargain
  • uninspired dining options
  • adults only so not for families
