Hotel Report

Why Stay At Victoria House Resort

Ambergris Caye is a slice of tropical paradise, but its hotels tend to be on the far side of rustic. The 42-room Victoria House is polished, intimate, and relaxed, within striking distance of town but far enough to feel like a retreat.

The Scoop

Victoria House Resort logo

Built in 1981, when Belize was still largely the province of divers and Caribbean beach collectors, Victoria House has expanded gradually over the years. The result is a variety of accommodations—traditional hotel rooms, casitas, and beachfront villas that sleep up to 10—all spread across eight acres of lawns, swaying palms, and well-tended gardens. The interiors are classic plantation style (rattan furniture; mosquito-netted beds) but you'll find most guests lounging around one of the two pools or nursing a cold Belikin beer at the palapa-style bar. The beach here is pretty but narrow, the Caribbean waves breaking out on the reef, a mile offshore. Indeed, snorkeling and scuba are still big draws, and the jetty at Victoria House is home to Fantasea, arguably the island's best dive shop and an ideal place to get certified (it runs fishing trips, too).

Insider Tips

Plan to have dinner at least once at elegant Restaurant Palmilla, which serves Caribbean-Mexican cuisine (black bean soup; snapper in a red curry sauce).

Borrow one of the resort's bikes so you can ride the two miles into San Pedro, a sandy-streeted village lined with art galleries and laid-back bars.

Why We Love Ambergris Caye

Scuba on the world's second largest barrier reef. Sun on the region's best white sand beaches. This is one island you don't want to miss.

Don't Miss

Underwater Adventure: Put your Jaws nightmares to rest at Shark Ray Alley, a celebrated spot on Belize's coral reef, where you can get up close and personal with hundreds of harmless nurse sharks and stingrays. The rays, which are up to four feet wide, will swim right up next to you like curious cats.

Mayan Ruins: The mainland has several sites where you can explore what remains of the vast Mayan empire that existed in Belize until the 17th century. Pyramids and temples are entwined in the jungles at Lamanai, Altun Ha, and, over the border in Guatemala, the astonishing Tikal; any can be done as a day trip arranged by the hotel.

Where to Eat: Have a water taxi take you to Capricorn, located on the quiet northern part of San Pedro, where you can dine under the stars on grilled lobster tail and fresh stone-crab claws. Dinner for two $102. San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. 011-501-226-2809. Read More

Wildlife Viewing: The jaguar is elusive, but its avian counterparts, including toucans and scarlet macaws, are much easier to spot at the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, in southern Belize, which also offers hiking trails, waterfalls, and river tubing. Get there via Maya Island Air or Tropic Air (San Pedro to Belize City to Dangriga), and then take a taxi ($75) or the local bus. Read More
