Xaman Ek Retreat & Spa San Pedro Reviews
Peaceful, funky beach resort on northern Ambergris Jan 16, 2010
Ambergris is an expensive place, no doubt about it. Quite frankly I don't find you get your money's worth anywhere here, but I was determined. I found Xaman Ek due to bargain hunting and wanting to find a resort type beach place we could work into our tour of Belize.
Things are slow there right now, and they had a 1/2 price offer up. For half price, it's a real nice deal, (I don't know if I would pay full price and go back.)
Mike the owner is super nice and takes care of all the guests. They have an onsite restaurant and spa, and an on-call divemaster to take you diving, all of which we used and enjoyed. They also have a game room with a small TV and pool table, which would be useful if it's raining.
Dive instructor Steve really helped us out by "refreshing" the resort dive course with my girlfriend. He only charged us $100 for both of us for a dive plus her refresher. So then she was able to go dive Half Moon Caye the next day and that was thrilling for her.
The nicest thing about it is the peace and quiet. You are far up the coast from town (12 minute boat ride) which is either a good thing or bad thing depending on what you are looking for. Cleaner beach, quieter, Mike also says they get less rain in the north.
We had a great 3 days here.
