"Wonderful stay!! Amazing location!"
I have only great things to say about this hotel... Rooms and cleanliness are all on point or above this hotel's star level. Location and customer service were beyond my expectations. The staff did everything possible to make sure our stay was a pleasant one and really helped to schedule some activities! Walking distance to the downtown of San Ped […] ro Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"low-key and lovely"
Just what we expected from other reviews--not in the middle of the San Pedro hustle, but close enough to get there easily if you want it. The hotel is, as one friend noted, "an older property"--less glitzy than many, but well-maintained with terrific staff, and a very good value. I'm not fond of resorts, and this had plenty of amenities (on the beach, […] good a/c, lively poolside bar, and yes--free rum punch) while remaining unpretentious. Both we and the group ahead of us had booked rooms with two beds, only to find that the hotel had put us in rooms with only one bed. Apparently this was due to a glitch between the booking site and the hotel, and in both cases the hotel made it right by upgrading both groups into suites. So the staff were extremely gracious, but it might be worth confirming your arrangements over the phone before arrival. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely, right on beach"
Everyone was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The man who runs the day excursions went out of his way to arrange a tour on our last day (most of the tours had been canceled because of the weather). Drinking the (free!) rum punch in the afternoons on the hammocks on the beach was relaxing and fantastic. Only thing is that the hotel is a […] little bit of a walk south from the main town center. Other than that, we were very happy with the Corona del Mar. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great staff, convenient location but overpriced"
we paid a good amount to stay here for a few days and expected a decent hotel but the room was very dumpy, with old comforters, stained towels, paint all over the sink and mirror. My reservation said "pool or ocean view" but the only view we had was of water storage tanks. Additionally, they gave us a room close to the bar so no sleep was had until […] after midnight friday night when they cut off the karaoke. We came to san pedro for the beach, reef & daytime adventures, not to be kept awake late by awful singing. I'd be extremely disappointed with our stay had the resort staff not been so nice and helpful Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"My upgraded premium room was great"
Excellent super friendly staff. Rooms can vary significantly by location on the site and price (see reviews on Trip Advisor). I had a room in the North building with ocean view and balcony (room 205), and it was lovely. Separate from the building with the pool/garden/bar area. On the other hand, the lower price rooms are great prices--so I'd guess some […] are definitely a good bargain--can't speak to those though as I did not stay in one. The staff are awesome--so sweet, friendly, and helpful! I'd for sure return again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Corona Del Mar is located within walking distance of town and some great restaurants. The hotel bar was always open for the great pina coladas and the staff was amazing. The Belikin beer was tops. We walked everywhere. The office staff took care of any reservations we needed. A place we will return to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Things to do"
Easy to arrange tour arrangements. Office staff very helpful since I arrived quite sick. If you are looking for a very slow atmosphere this is it. There is no restaurant on site but many good ones near by. Easy walking distance wherever u wanted to go.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Things are decent but NO wifi connection"
vickie (the receptionist) is very nice - great customer service. Hotel's facilities are a bit obsolete but the location is pretty convenient. We went with Scuba school Belize for our diving trips and the school is within 1 min of walking distance. Got plenty of good restaurants besides us - Black and White, Pepperoni's, Melt, Spice it up, Average Joe's […] etc. BUT... WIFI connection keeps getting disconnected once every 1-2 min which is SUPER annoying! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, even better staff!"
We stayed at the Corona Del Mar for 18 days. Just returned December 19. The hotel a perfect distance from town. About a 15 minute walk by beach or 25 minutes by road. So, the convenience to town was great with the bonus of a quiet beautiful beach location. Frank (who seems to be able to fix or build anything) and bartenders Margie & Kenny are just beyond […] helpful and wonderful. They were planning to open their restaurant again soon after we left, but there are several restaurants and fun bars within a few short steps on the beach or down the road. We had a wonderful time.

"It was, meh, just meh....."
The hotel is a bit rundown and the "continental" breakfast is fruit and toast. The location is pretty far down the beach, but it's only a 15 minute walk regardless of where you want to go.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great price--with air conditioning!"
Corona del Mar was a little (~1 mile) away from the town center but it's an easy and beautiful walk up the beach to get there. There's a pool and bar, continental breakfast and good restaurant just across the street (George's Kitchen). Every room has a safe and an air conditioner. Perfect for my needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not fancy but does the job.."
We pay 100 bucks for one night. I was expecting a better service, but as we were walked around the island, we saw the kind of quality most of the hotels had so it was average for it. Dont expect fancy instalations this is an old hotel, but the staff is nice and the room provide the basic features just fine and have flat screen TVs. Breakfast could definetly […] be improved.

The Corona Del Mar is very comfortable. The service was excellent and location was perfect for us. Beautiful view of ocean and beach. People are wonderful. I would recommend to anyone and would stay here on a return visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a great time at the bar with all the different people on vacation. The lady at the bar Vicki was great. One of the front desk girls let us use her golf cart and didn't want any money for gas but we made her take our money. Pepperoni pizza was excellent just 1/2 block fr the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel right on the beach"
Very basic rooms with small fridge and microwave. They were very adequate since I did not plan to spend my time in the room anyway. Extremely accommodating and friendly staff. I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved the Corona Del Mar and would stay again. It's not a fancy hotel but it has the basics and that's what counts. The people that worked there are Very friendly and helpful. Great location away from center of town and very peaceful. It's probably about a mile walk to town. We rented bikes and it didn't seem like it took that long to get to town. The […] room has great a/c. Free wifi all the way to end of the dock. They do offer a free breakfast, that consists of coffee,juice, toast with peanut butter or jelly and fresh fruit. Yes, its not much but if your not a big breakfast eater its a good start and it's FREE.. Oh, did i mention free rum punch throughout the day..YUM!! the rooms also have coffee maker,microwave, and dorm sized refrigerator available. There is groceries stores around the hotel, but the prices are very expensive. So if your on a budget you could bring some basics with you. Lots of yummy places to eat at though. I don't think i had a bad meal on the island.. Hurricane's is a short walk down the beach and had excellent food. Melt's right next door had excellent food as well, just wish I would have tried it sooner than the day before I left. The week we were there was perfect time to be there. Not to crowded on the island. Only problem with that is the restaurants made up there own hours. Since its before high time starts they were taking vacations too. Loved San Pedro and the people!!

The best asset of this hotel was its very friendly and welcoming staff!!!! Close enough to town to walk into as needed. Could use a paint job though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun in a laid back great place."
What a great value and hotel. Not real fancy but well worth the price. At times it felt like we were the only ones in the hotel. Hammock access anytime we wanted and the rum punch...excellent!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location & Lounge Chairs only Asset"
at check-in was assigned to awful corner room with absolutely no view...had booked more expensive ocean view. Luckily had copy with me and was reassigned to ocean view - not even a "sorry " from hotel staff, who were, in general, very unfriendly. Was charged $10 US (they asked for dollars) to launder 2 pairs of pants. I would never stay here again but […] if you want to party and just need an OK place to stay the cheap rooms would be OK. Seems like they are just waiting for a developer to buy them out and letting the place rundown in the meantime. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This Corona del Mar is a great deal for the money."
For one of the less expensive options in the area this is a great deal. I met lots of interesting and friendly travelers and the people who work there are fantastic. I will very likely stay here again. Thanks Margie for the great drinks and for the help with my golf cart issues.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel was clean and the staff was welcoming"
We had a fantastic experience at the hotel and in San Pedro. Everyone was nice. We had a lovely room, clean, oceanview and the cleaning persons were very attentive. They were great! The office staff and the other staff members were very welcoming and helpful. We would go back again. I brought my own coffee, filter, and cream for my room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Employees are very professional and courteous."
The Hotel is located in a very prime location, the Employees are great from Margie the bartender she is a genuine beautiful person making sure your stay is unforgetable. I really enjoy my stay and would definately go back there in a heartbeat.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and comfortable hotel on the beach"
My husband and I had not been to Ambergris Caye before now. We booked through Expedia and had no problems. The hotel was clean, quiet and close to town. We had a beautiful ocean view from the third floor. George's restaurant was very good and right across the street. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly and definitely cared about us having […] a nice vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great affordable place to stay"
The hotel is affordable and a great deal for the price. It is right on the water (although you can't really swim right off the beach). If you are looking for swimming access you have to go off the dock or walk up the beach a little. We had a pool view room which was nice. The more pricey rooms seemed nicer of course but I was very satisfied with my […] room. It was cleaned daily-we always had clean towels. Air conditioning, a functioning shower, tv with cable, and good sized beds. Pretty much all you need. I would suggest bringing bug spray with you though-the mosquitoes ate me alive. All of the staff was so friendly. Say hello to happy man for me! Its walking distance from town although you can rent a golf cart if you need to. We walked everywhere-which was good exercise. I don't have anything bad to say about this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A hotel that shows the best of Belize!"
The staff at Corona Del Mar were the most accommodating and friendly throughout our entire stay. It was so wonderful to wake up every morning and have breakfast on beach chairs overlooking the ocean. Tuff Enough Tours, located on the hotel's dock was so helpful in coordinating snorkeling, cave tubing, and zip lining trips.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great view of the beach and water, staff was friendly and very helpful. Rooms were clean and kept clean. It is walking distant down the beach from the middle of town, but far enough away that you do not deal with the loud music from the night life. The room does come with A/C and hot water plus the hotel offers free rum punch to all guest. The hotel […] does offer wifi, but it does not always work and the signal fades in and out the entire time. If you are looking for a fancy hotel this is not the place you would want to stay, but if you want to get the real feel of beach life in Belize, this is the perfect place to stay. I do plan on staying here the next time I visit San Pedro Belize Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would definitely go back"
The rooms were clean, plenty big, and had great A/C, mini-fridge and microwave. Room service was daily and they kept everything clean and refreshed towels and what-not. Great hotel, with nice staff and nice price. Would sleep in again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the action in San Pedro"
Overall this is a nice hotel in a location close to the center of the town of San Pedro. One of the challenges on Ambergris is the distance from the "action" of San Pedro (many hotels are quite a distance) but this hotel is on the beach and just a 15 minute walk from the water taxi and the airport (when arriving/leaving with bags just take a $5 cab […] ride). There is nothing wrong with the hotel but it is not a resort, just a good place to stay at a good rate. It doesn't have any particular charm but doesn't have any major problems either (they could do a bit more for the included continental breakfast but there is a wonderful family restaurant right across the street so perhaps it doesn't matter).

"Great price, nice hotel"
We had stayed at a variety of hotels throughout Belize and this was a better one. This was a great price and right on the beach. The beds were comfortable and the AC worked great. It was nice having a small sofa, although a bit hard. Mini fridge, but no knob to turn down temp so everything froze. Coffee maker, but none of the stuff to make coffee. Complimentary […] breakfast was toast and fruit. Internet worked well enough throughout. There is a very nice pool and lots of tables around. Lots of hammocks and lounge chairs on the beach as well. They have a full bar and make stiff drinks and have a good happy hour. The female server was super friendly, but the male was decent service, but not that comfortable dealing with people. We were very satisfied with this hotel and would recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My wife and I booked through hotels .com We had made reservations two weeks prior. They gave us a room #6. Immediately upon opening the door of the room I smelled mold. I asked for another room they said they had none. The room had mold growing around the baseboards. I took pictures. At night I sat reading my book And noticed water dripping ony book […] it came from the ceiling there were 7-10 water droplets dripping through the plaster. Puddles were in the floor. When I went to talk to front desk they were gone already fir the night the office door was locked and lights out. On the morning u Sked fir the manager. They said she was not available for two days. And if I had complaints I would need to go to hotels.com for any satisfaction. This is what I hate about discount booking sites. They are of no help. I will see what hotel.com does about this. Also The bar was up till 11:00 pm singing bad karioki. Pool stunk. Many better hotel choices in this island for same or less price. Et Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avoid Easter at all costs!!!"
We were there last week from Saturday to Saturday. Sunday was Easter. The manager put 11 members of her extended family in one of the prime units (she carried in the extra towels and stuff herself to the unit) and 10 in another prime unit PLUS A DOG. In yet another unit she had 9 family members. There were little kids running arround the place screaming […] all day Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Don't go there during a local holiday!

"Good place to stay with reasonable price"
The location of this hotel is good, slightly south of the downtown but you can still walk to everything. The quality of the rooms are not uniform. We initially paid USD$85 for a standard room in the older building - 2 QB + refrig + microwave. I asked for a better room with kitchen since we plan to stay for another 4 days. They then gave us an one-bedroom […] apartment facing ocean on 2nd floor, with full kitchen and a living/dining room for ~$200 Belizean (~ USD $100). We know what to request when we return. The staff are helpful but sometimes failed to communicate with each other. Complimentary breakfast is basic - toast, fruits and coffee (no tea or decaf). The guests should also know that the internet access has limited band width and close to impossible during evening. But if you are willing to take your iPad/phone/PCs outside and walk around, you can find a good spots to connect. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great bargain. Peaceful and relaxing."
Very friendly staff. Very quiet. If you want crazy party action don't go here, this is laid back and relaxing. Have to take a cab and a water taxi to get to San Padre from BZE airport (about 2 hours and $40 US), or a short flight on a local airline (about a half hour and $80 US). Easy walk to San Padre town center for shopping and groceries. Set up […] tours right from the hotel for snorkeling, diving, Mayan ruins, etc. Very good food at the bar, only about $15 US for a great fish dinner or $20 US for a lobster dinner. Caroline's right next door is an excellent restaurant. $1 US = $2 Belize. Everyone takes US though, and credit cards. Stayed February 2013 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice area, white beaches. Only complaint is when the tide is out you see lots of seaweed debri in the water. Looks kinda of scummy but it is like that all down the coast, at least where we walked. If you want to swim there are only small areas off the docks, if you want the aqua blue, you need a boat. Great and friendly staff. Continental breakfast […] was fresh fruit, toast and coffee. Other thing was we were not able to get a warm/hot shower. Took 5 mins of running water to get it sort of warm then it was cold again. Not fun showers. Internet connection kept dropping, slow. Not a huge deal for us but if you need reliability I noticed it seems to be not so great in most areas. So if that is important to you you should ask about reliability of the area.

The hotel has a great location along the waterfront; the rooms are pleasant with a small refrigerator and microwave. Overall, we found that the hotel was a good value for the price.

"Great staff, but no breakfast, as listed"
The positives: the staff were very friendly and very helpful when help was requested. On the beach, very nice view. Refrigerator was very cold, which was great. Computers (2) were also available if you didn't bring your own. In a quiet area of town, but still not far from center. Negatives: There was no breakfast, as stated in the info--this was very […] important. That added about $45 to my stay of three days. They told me when I was there that they had not had breakfast for quite some time, but were hoping to open up again soon. Had difficulty (took 3 times attempts) to get a room that had properly working ac. There was no hair dryer. Fortunately, the weather was nice and I was not there for serious business meetings and I didn't mind, but normally it would be a problem. There was no sofa in my room, but not important, just commenting re listed room amenities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not exactly what they advertise"
The hotel is older and you can tell it has weathered a few storms, but the main thing is that their advertising is a bit deceiving. The swim up bar means you can sit in the pool and yell to the bartender who is about 5 feet from the pool. It was nice to be a little away from town. Only a short beach walk to the popular places. I highly recommend tuff […] n enough tours. The activities director is very sweet and loves to show off his town. Plus he was genuinely concerned about everyone's safety so when some shady characters approached he immediately came and got them away. The place could use a little more tlc or just not be as expensive Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This has to be about the nastiest hotel I've ever stayed at. IT IS NOT AT ALL WHAT THE PICTURES ARE. The pool is cloudy (it literally looks like 2% milk). Bugs is what covered our beds. Its not even called "coconut carribean hotel" its called "don" something or another smhhhhhh. Oh and to top it off the workers were selling the sheets off the bed in […] the front. Oh and the gallon of water in your room is already opened for you. Only because they believe in refilling your bottel with who knows what. I am still itching from that bed. DO NOT STAY THERE.

"Coconuts Caribbean Hotel - the staff"
Over all I found the accommodations very accommodating even though extensive renovations were apparent. The one aspect that even the most expensive hotels can easily manifest is "warm hearted, courteous, friendly, gracious staff". The staff more than exceeded in this category, far out weighing the minimal disturbances due to the renovation. Due to the […] awesome staff and clean conditions, I would definitely return to this hotel...which has been bought out and merged into the Coronado del Mar next door.
