RECOMMENDED HOTELS IN BELIZE


Last revised June 2010

These are among the hotels we find visitor-friendly, with good value for the price. Hotels of special note, due to excellent value, friendly owners, attractive style, or special Belizean charm, are highlighted in CAPITALS. Our VERY special faves are in BOLD CAPS.  Price range: A (typically over US$200 double); B (typically US$85-$200 double); C (typically under US$85 double). Rates are for typical rooms without meals, in season (generally December-April), may vary by season or with specials, and are subject to change. Plus (+) sign after A price level indicates that the rate may be much higher than other hotels in the category. Rates do not include service or 9% hotel tax. Off-season, rates typically drop 20 to 40%, except at some budget hotels. Please tell us about good lodging we may have overlooked.
