We were in the Crocodile Suite which was spacious and clean. The deck overlooking the pool to the ocean was lovely. There is a great outdoor shower that we used every day (there is an indoor one also but we never used it). The location is between town and the turn to secret beach which was perfect. With our golf cart we went all over the island. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly and helpful with all our questions. It was quiet in the morning and evenings. Our husbands fished off the dock and we kayaked out to the reef to snorkel. We could run along the coast in the morning. If you really want to cook a lot of meals in the kitchen you might want a few more cups and glasses and kitchen utensils. The food was so good everywhere that we used the kitchen far less than we thought we would. We felt right at home and part of the family while being spoiled.

Property's Favourite Review
We absolutely lucked into this place. We made somewhat last minute reservations to go down to Belize and we are so lucky to have found this place. There are not very many rooms total (only 4 in the main building on the water) and maybe 8-9 overall. It seemed like everyone knew our name from the moment we arrived and were treated like royalty with each interaction. The location is wonderful (just about 2 miles north of the bridge into town) and we walked it once in less than an hour, most of which was walking along the waterfront. San Pedro is pretty hustle and bustle but, this is the picture of serenity. The food was fantastic! Breakfast burritos (sounds simple but, these were 5-star), fryjacks with pineapple jam, ceviche, etc. All of it was simply delicious and not very expensive at all. Belize has to be one of the least expensive places to visit. Also, don't forget about happy hour (both here and along the water at different places). Linda (bartender and caretaker extraordinaire ) made is feel like family. I will definitely book here again.

We hadn't been to Ambergris in a decade, but the staff at Bella Vista reminded us why we've always loved visiting. Bony and Linda took especially good care of us (Linda even made a to-go breakfast for us when we had to get up early for diving), but everyone at Bella Vista was fantastic. The grounds are leafy and full of iguanas, the accommodations are roomy, cool, and clean. The food is excellent, and the bikes and kayaks are a great bonus. All of the other glowing reviews are accurate--this is a great place to stay!

The staff at BV Resort were amazing. You can’t ask for better. Top notch service and they went out of their way to make our stay as great as possible. We were able to check into our room extremely early when we thought we would just be dropping off our bags. They were very attentive, friendly, and accommodating. You will still feel like you’re in Belize here versus some of the larger resorts. The grounds are gorgeous and tucked back in to the shore. 10/10 recommend taking the kayak out to the reef, tie it up to a buoy, and have a gorgeous reef to explore/snorkel and clear shallow water to swim in all by yourselves.

We want to thank everyone that works there, everyone was so nice and helpful. People who really need a special thank you are Zamir he helped us so much with the booking and even made our plane reservation from Belize City to San Pedro, Boney was also a big help. Linda who took very good care of us for breakfast and was such a joy to talk with first thing in the morning. She made sure my coffee cup never ran out. Pablo, for giving us such good service for dinner and reserving our table. I believe this is probably the best restaurant in San Pedro, people staying in town make the 2,5 mile ride there to eat.I would also like to mention Manner and Bella did a great job in the restaurant . The Kitchen staff Julio and Letty did a great job on preparing all of the food. The one and only house keeping person, Angie cleaned our room every other day and changed our sheets on the bed and made sure we had plenty of clean towels. Aner took us on a sunset cruise for our birthdays celebration. We were pleasantly surprised our appetizers consisted of conch ceviche, bacon wrapped dates with pineapple. To drink we had sangria and plenty of beer. The grounds keepers Alvaro and Alfonso keep the place looking very nice. Last but not lease the owners Mike and Sandy, very nice people and they take good care of the staff working there. Everyone had nothing but, nice things to say about them. We would recommend this place. We will stay there on our next trip to San Pedro. It was so hard to leave. We felt like we were leaving our Belizian Family.
