Fodor's Expert Review Hol Chan Reef Resort & Villas

3½ miles (5.6 km) south of town, San Pedro Town, Belize District, Belize

Thoughtfully designed apartments are ideal for family retreats at this well-run "condotel" in quiet southern Ambergris Caye. The spacious two- and three-bedroom units are quite luxurious and have full kitchens and comfortable furnishings. The balconies, rooftop, and glassy pools are undoubtedly the highlights of the hotel. As there's no dining on-site––not even a shop for snacks––this is a truly self-catering location. Conveniently, a "sunset bar" serves pizza just across the street––but bear in mind that the next nearest restaurant is about a mile away, the nearest grocery store even farther, so renting a golf cart is a must. The friendly concierge and staff can help you with such details of your vacation. One thing that makes Hol Chan Reef a rarity? There's an elevator.

  • perfect for extended families
  • good service but also privacy
