With cabanas styled on those of the Polynesian island of Bora Bora, it has been said that this resort brings Tahiti to within a two hour flight from Houston. The cabanas of the Ramon’s Village Resort are surrounded by tropical plants such as Royal Palms, hibiscus, bougainvillea and lilies yet they are still just a few steps away from the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
The resort includes The Belizean Princess, 10 Palm thatched cabanas in British colonial style, located across the street from the main Village complex.
With cabanas that can sleep from 2 to 4 people there are a variety of prices but the resort’s specialty packages that include accommodation, breakfast and dinner plus 2 full tank dives each day, start from $1,067.63 per person in Belizean Princess Quad accommodation to $2,436.26 per person in the Presidential Suite.
Although surrounded and secluded by tropical plants and Mayan statues, Ramon’s Village is actually in the town of San Pedro, the main town on Ambergris Caye, the biggest of Belize’s islands that stretch the length of the Belize’s reef, the second longest barrier reef in the world.
The choices of accommodations include the Belizean princess cabanas plus the choice from cabanas, guest or mini suites, Honeymoon Cabana, Presidential or Grand Suite in the Village itself.
Food & Dinning
The resort’s restaurant Pineapple’s, is a whole experience on its own. Located on the beach under a 35’ thatch roof surrounding a 16’Mayan statue this restaurant offers an eating experience that is unforgettable. From choices that include Steak on a Stone to the chef preparing the fish you caught that day, in a style you prefer, all the food is delicious and can be enjoyed whilst delighting at the excellent backdrop of the Caribbean.
The resort boasts all the amenities that you could hope for, a pool, easy access to the beach where there are chairs and hammocks available, restaurant, bar, spa, library, business centre and its own pier. Added to that, there is a gift shop and a dive shop, concierge services and a friendly multi-lingual staff.
Staff & Service
The resort takes pride in having a staff that is friendly and can always provide a smile. Most of the staff have been employed by the resort for at least 20 years and are always appreciated in any reviews written about the resort.
Of course, being located on the biggest island on the second biggest barrier reef in the world means that there are ample water activities to participate in, from fishing and diving to swimming and snorkeling but one of the main attractions is swimming with the sharks and rays in shark Rey Alley. The resort can also organize tours to the mainland which can include adventure activities like zip lining and cave exploring in the rainforests or visiting one of the many Mayan Ruins in Belize.
There is more to Ambergris Caye than just fishing and diving and so either rent a golf cart, the preferred method of transport on the island or book a tour of the island early in your stay to ensure you make the most of your island get-a-way.
