Fodor's Expert Review Coral House Inn

151 Main St., across from Punta Gorda hospital, Punta Gorda, Toledo, Belize Fodor's Choice

Americans Rick and Darla Mallory renovated this 1938 British colonial–era house and turned it into one of the most pleasant small guesthouses in the country, with breezy views of the Bay of Honduras and warm hospitality from owners and staff. You'll identify the house by coral-color paint and the vintage red VW van parked in front. The six guest rooms have tile floors, comfortable beds, air-conditioning, cable TV, and Wi-Fi. There's a swimming pool, honor bar, and complimentary bikes. A Continental breakfast, served in a newly expanded dining area, is included in the reasonable rates. Just in front of the inn is a historic small cemetery with the graves of three ex-Confederates who moved to Toledo after the U.S. Civil War. If you want something more private, inquire about the two-story house with two large self-catering suites. Families or groups can rent the entire house, which is managed, not owned, by the Mallorys.
