Private Island Experience
This is exactly the type of resort we needed for a relaxing few days at the end of our tour around Belize.
A place to disconnect and relax while having some amazing adventures. We got connected with Tim and Andrea before our stay and even before our trip started we had a really great impression on how it would go.
We were picked up in Belize City by Wilbur by boat and delivered out to this private island to be excited by our overwater cabanas that were the first things we saw. Wilbur then took our bags directly to our room for us without a thought. Later in the trip, he took us back and forth to Belize City again and his service was always on point.
Jahnene the manager greeted us at the island and gave us the tour around. We loved this property how it spanned from one ocean side of the island to the other. You could always find a perfect spot no matter the wind direction. We later found out that Jahnene was actually perfect at her job. She spent hours on the phone for us with different clinics organizing our Covid tests for our return to Canada. We are so grateful to have her there to relieve that stress for us. That aside, Jahnene came up to chat with us at every meal just to find out how she could make our stay better. She made it her mission to understand exactly what we needed to have the best time ever here. Thank you Jahnene!
Adventure was the name of the game here and to name a few, we did three dives here and saw an abundance of healthy corals and creatures. Jose helped my girlfriend finish her open-water certification course, which she was actually very nervous about, but Jose was extremely patient and made her feel super relaxed about the whole process. Freddy was the same and always made sure he kept an eye on her. That was really all she needed to feel secure. It helped that we saw a beautiful turtle and a little nurse shark as they were super peaceful.
Kayaks and paddleboards are free to use anytime and we took advantage of that as the back bay was so calm and beautiful. We say eagle rays and stingrays swimming under us and on our last day, I even got to kayak with dolphins. Apparently, this is a common thing, but a first for me. Three dolphins swam around me for over an hour very curious of what I was up to. All of this happened while enjoying an incredible sunset.
Andy helped teach us how to use the Hobie Cat, which is a mini sailboat fit for 3 or 4 people, also free to use any time and once you get a quick lesson from Andy, you are good to journey around on your own if you want. He's a great teacher!
Edison and Alex run the bar and deliver amazing plentiful amounts of food. We were well taken care of and they also played lots of games with us and built us an awesome bonfire twice for us and the other guests. One of the things we liked most about this place, was that the staff really created a communal feeling which made it easy to get to know other guests through fun activities. Nobody was left out unless they wanted to be which really added to our experience there. Hermit Crab races were especially a great idea haha.
Thank you everyone and to the other awesome guests for making our stay amazing! Thank you to Cornell for driving us around in the city to get everything we needed as well.
Wonderful, intimate resort!
There’s not much for me to say that hasn’t already been repeatedly said by other reviewers. I have traveled extensively over many years and the staff here were the friendliest group I have ever encountered. If I tried to name them all I would probably leave someone out, so let me just say that everyone (yes, everyone!) made us feel welcome and appreciated throughout our stay. Kudos to Barry, the onsite manager, for fostering that attitude.
The food was fresh, amazingly good and plentiful. The bar was top-notch and the office staff were eager to answer questions and help in any way.
You should, however, be aware that Saint George’s Caye resort is not luxurious - it leans toward the plain, functional side. The small overwater cabanas have no direct access to the water, but they are nice and quiet with wonderful sunset views. The cabana bathroom is also quite small and a bit outdated. There are not enough lounge chairs at the beach or at the pool, so our group of four often found two of five available chairs at each location taken, leaving only three, so we had to move on. That being said, it’s a terrific value for the money and, if you go with reasonable expectations, you can help but have a wonderful, relaxing vacation there!
Excellent time! Very serene and romantic!
We stayed at St. Georges Caye just this last week and it was absolutely amazing! We stayed in the overwater cabanas and were woken up every morning to the bright, beautiful skies (We even saw a pair of Dolphins!). The staff was amazing, the amenities were great and the views of the island were so scenic. I loved every minute of it and was so disappointed to leave. Would HIGHLY recommend for couples/Romantic getaways, but would likely be ok for small families or a small group of friends who were looking to have a quiet, relaxing time away from it all
Best 40th birthday EVER!
Worked for over a year to plan my 40th birthday celebration. Service was incredible, they addressed all my requests and myself and guests were overjoyed. The food and drinks were outstanding. Rooms were cozy and clean. We will be back!
All I can say is wow.
My husband and I, after multiple attempts (due to COVID-19), were finally able to take our honeymoon to this beautiful island and we were in constant awe the whole time. We are normally busy bodies but when we arrived on the island all we wanted to do was relax and do things at our own leisure which is exactly what this resort offered.
We can't say enough about the staff. We heard a saying while there "here in Belize you don't make friends, you make family". This was so fitting because whenever we interacted with the staff it felt like family. Here are a few that stood out to us.
Alex: he was simply amazing and did anything/everything he could to make sure we were taken care of. My husband found a conch shell and Alex took it and cleaned it for us so we could take it home - above and beyond service.
Edison: Amazing bartender, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him. I know my husband really loved getting to fish for Tarpon with him after dinner as well. Outstanding service.
Misael: Excellent cook and even better person. He helped my husband, on multiple occasions and after a long day of work, try to land a Tarpon on the front dock. My husband was thrilled to have a fishing buddy and Misael was awesome.
The food and drinks were amazing, you will not leave the resort hungry. They are always making sure you are fed. If you go on an excursion (like fishing) and will miss a meal, they will pack it for you so you don't go hungry. Also I cannot forget the fresh coffee and orange juice that got delivered to our room everyday. I looked forward to this every morning and is something I miss - being able to sip on your coffee and watch the sunrise, absolute bliss.
I would highly recommend the water cabanas. It did get buggy at night since there is little to no wind, but getting to see all of the wildlife was amazing.
The resort was cleaned and freshly groomed everyday, you can tell that they take pride in what they are doing at St. Georges. After breakfast we always came back to a clean room, it was great. Also, the resort took great precautions against COVID-19 making sure everything was sanitized, people were wearing masks, and taking our temperatures daily. My husband and I felt more than safe during our stay.
Overall we loved the atmosphere and being able to meet some amazing new people. We will absolutely be back and look forward to booking our next vacation there.
“ The diving was good, the reef is very alive. My favorite non-dive experience was the hammock at the end of the pier. Oh what a comfortable hammock with an ocean view and a frequent pelican to hang out with.”
“ We had an amazing honeymoon at St. George's Caye! The staff and atmosphere are amazing and provide a very intimate setting in an often over-touristed environment. The diving is amazing, as well as the dive staff. Very well done!”
“ St. George's Caye is truly one-of-a-kind and absolutely serene! We loved that we could have gone a whole day on the island without seeing anyone if we didn't want to, but could be surrounded by new friends just as easily. Sitting on the front porch of our ocean front cabana drinking our delivered coffee and watching the sunrise was always a perfect start to the day!”
“We fell asleep to the sounds of the water below our cabin washing up on the beach beside us and the calm breeze blowing through the thatching on the roof of our hut, and every now and then a song of a local gull.”
