Good location. Undergoing a face lift so hopefully outside appearance is being updated. Stiff mattress.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed my stay. The staff were very helpful. Vicky and Marlene at the front desk helped me with tours for the day and my hotel in San Ignasio. Margie at the bar was very friendly. Kenny helped me with any problems in my room. I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Once again, a great stay..."
I've stayed here several times, and it's always nice to see friends again. Marlemi, Carla, and Vicky are always pleasant in the office, and Le Roi does a fine job arranging my diving excursions. You won't de disappointed here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Honestly the stay was pretty good right up until we discovered we had forgotten something in the room safe. After contacting the front desk about our item they informed us that it would cost $60usd to mail them back to us. Utterly ridiculous for something that could have been put in an envelope with 2 stamps on it. We tried to rent bikes from the hotel […] but the gent in charge of bike rentals took almost 2 hours just to find the keys to unlock them, and when we needed a seat adjusted it took him almost as much time to find a wrench so we just went in to town and rented some for about $4usd daily. Otherwise the hotel was in ok shape (some major projects seemed to be going on but that's expected out of season) and the staff were courteous and friendly. I don't recommend staying in San Pedro as the prices are extremely inflated and the island as a whole was not the bargain we were hoping for. I'll be staying inland or on Caye Caulker next time I visit. It's a serviceable location and is an easy walk in to town. A good spot if you plan to be offshore on excursions most of your visit. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FLYING TO AN FROM THE ISLANDS!!! The water taxi's were packed to and from, I'd hate to see them during season. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just the Basics but at a reasonable price"
Used this hotel because others I had stayed at had raised prices. Its a bit sparse but reasonable and certainly has the basics needed (a bed and a bathroom). Its nothing special and won't win any awards but the staff were nice. Its easy walking distance from the airport (even with luggage), but a bit of a trek to the water taxi dock or some of the popular […] restaurants downtown. Would stay again in a pinch if I couldn't get a reasonable price elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, close to the action and on beach"
The hotel is close to everything. We had a very comfortable King bed in our room along with a fridge and microwave and secure lock box. Hot water was always available and A/C and overhead fan kept the room cool for sleeping. The hotel is right on the beach, has a pool and a small restaurant / bar. Breakfast was included as well as daily afternoon rum […] punch. Quite at night. Hotel is centrally located - 15 minute walk to most of the action - but we rented bikes from the hotel (also at a good weekly price) and much less expensive than a golf cart which can be difficult to park in town so would highly suggest the bike rental option. Staff are friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly and relaxed"
A good hotel to start a vacantion in San Pedro. A bit to fare out of town. Friendly staff. No crystal clear water outside the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the money best value you can get. This was walking distance to the city center, close to grocery store and other hotels. We liked Margie's and felt that the food was good. Friday night kareoke was fun. They make a great martini there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Had a great time for extremely reasonable price"
Hotel slightly worn and might need a little paint here and there, but it was clean and cared for and the staff were helpful and friendly. Best of all, prices were less than half of competition at glitzier hotels. I prefer to spend my money on the things that are truly important, not just cosmetic. Positioned at the south end of San Pedro, you can walk […] into town or down the beach. You're not captive in a gated resort. Always felt safe at hotel and beach. First time in Belize and we loved it. Have been to Mexico/Yucatan many times but it's getting overdeveloped and too commercial. This is Mexico a couple of decades ago. Food awesome everywhere. Would love to go during lobster season. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great experience once again at Corona del Mar!!"
For the second year in a row, I had a great experience at Corona del Mar. They are very responsive via phone and email ahead of time, and wonderful hosts on site. The manager Marlemi takes exceptional care of the guests and creates both a fun and laid-back atmosphere for everyone. The onsite dive company is Tuff E Nuff, and Le Roi coordinated everything […] for me, and everything went off without a hitch. Can't say enough good things about this place, well done friends!!

"Old & Tired"
The staff saved the day here, they were friendly and helpful. The beds were like sleeping on a cot, very hard, lumpy pillows. The property needs LOTS of upkeep, it was like me, old & tired. We liked that it was out of the main chaos of the downtown area, this is a spring break destination. Good bar and bar food!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A great find!"
Very pleased with our stay. The staff was welcoming, helpful and happy. The rooms were a good value. The location was perfect. The free rum punch was a bonus. The bar was fun. George's across the street was yummy. Highly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old and Tired"
The hotel is old and tired. The worst part of the stay was the beds, I felt like I was sleeping on a board. The linens were clean and plentiful but don't loose any! There seems to be a problem with them having them taken and they seem to constantly monitor them. The staff was very friendly and helpful but there needs to be some work done on the pro […] perty.

"Pretty good place, but room for improvement"
First, the good: Located away from the busy part of San Pedro but still within reasonable walking distance of restaurants, bars. Nice oceanfront with a decent dock for swimming. Room was clean and comfortable - simple but perfectly fine. The pool was a decent size, and there was (in theory) free rum punch available from noon until 6 pm every day - which […] was great when it was provided. The reception staff and bartenders were very attentive and friendly, and the restaurant provided a limited menu but the food we ordered was excellent and reasonably priced. The dive shop on the pier (Tuff Enuff tours) was run by a very nice guy named Leroy, and you can charge services to your hotel room (his wife manages the hotel). His prices for snorkel trips were the cheapest of the 6 places I checked, and our trip to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley was great with fantastic guides. The bad: the housekeeping staff was very lackadaisical; went to the guest lounge for the included breakfast and the food items were not kept stocked, no plates provided, etc. Had to go into the kitchen and find our own stuff. Staff would be sitting in the guest area watching TV, see guests searching for things, and make no effort to get up and restock until asked, then seemed put out by this. Same with the rum punch. First day it was out and kept restocked, the next no sign of anything. When I asked the staff again watching TV in the area provided for guests, was told it would be coming "later". This meant 2:30.

"Simple, beach front lodging"
Overall we were happy with our experience at Corona del Mar, but for first-timers to Belize, there are a few things you should know: 1. The advertised two beds in your booked room CAN mean one queen (or king) + one rollaway single or a pull out couch. This worked for us since we were two adults and two small kids, but others may not find this suitable. 2. […] The continental breakfast that comes with the booking is simply fruit, bread and spreads (butter, Jiff peanut butter, Smucker's jam), coffee, and a juice from concentrate. There is nothing authentically local about it, nor is it particularly filling. We opted to get breakfast from a local restaurant and make PB & J sandwiches that we saved for our lunch with the hotel's continental breakfast. 3. The free rum punch all day is the best perk of the whole place! 4. The hotel has older and newer sections, and no two rooms seem the same. This can seem a little slipshod, but it is just the way it is, and it seems to work pretty well. 5. This hotel is about a 1/2 mile walk or ride (taxi, bike, rented golf cart) from San Pedro town, where there are lots more restaurants and shops. 6. Though this hotel is beach front, the only good swimming is off the end of the dock, as there is no real beachfront swimming here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Corona del mar was a nice place to stay. It is a bit out of town but not too far to walk. Break fast fruit, juice and toast and they had free Rum punch all afternoon. The staff was friendly and helpful but many people had difficulty with the reservations including me. I had paid for a room for 4 but was directed to two rooms for 2 for the first night. […] They tried to get me to pay extra for this and stated that it was "Expedias fault" for overbooking and offered to try to get me redirected to another place but when I said I wouldn't pay any more they took care of it allowing me to stay in the 2 single rooms for one night without extra charges.

"Pleasant surprise !"
Great staff with a bar right on the beach. Continental breakfast was a nice way to start the day. We told a staff member that we were celebrating out first anniversary and he asked what room number was ours because he wanted to cut a boquet of flowers and bring them to us! That is how nice they are!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Surprisingly wonderful experience!"
First time to Belize and were apprehensive in booking. Pictures and description did not do justice. While beach is not a swimming beach, were very pleased in every other way. Staff were friendly and helpful, treating you like family. They upgraded us from a room to an apartment. Hotel restaurant food was great, as was the food at neighboring restaurants […] - George's, TAKY Inn and Melt Cafe. Will be back next year for a linger visit. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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
"Good value for the money, on the beach in Belize"
While this is not a five star place, it is the best value in San Pedro. All of the rooms are large, clean and include a large HD TV. Located right on the beach, with its own dive shop and free rum punch. The only other hotel in this price range is Pedro's and that isn't on the beach.Genuine Expedia 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
"DO NOT STAY HERE!!!"
The hotel is by the ocean and the staff were helpful besides those things the hotel is awful. The overall condition of the buildings is poor. There is garbage laying around, doors and lights and other things are broken. The room smelled bad, mattress was very uncomfortable, the shower was gross, and the pool was the worst part. I would never swim in […] the water it didn't appear to have any kind of filtration system it was just a big concrete tank. Toughed it out 1 night and found somewhere else to stay.

"Funky, great location, nice folks"
when I reserved it was all that was available at a decent price. great location. dock right outside where you can be picked up for dives. advise trying to get ocean view and not poolside room if you can - and request 2nd or 3rd floor and not next to the office. I would go back. people were great.Genuine Expedia 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.

"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.

Had a great time at the bar with all the different people on vacation. The lady at the bar Vicki was great.

"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!!

"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
