Craig & Karen Reynolds purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Craig & Karen Reynolds chose San Pedro
We searched many place but the people of Belize are amazing and we felt VERY safe! English spoken and US dollars are easy to figure to Belizian currency, 1 U.S. dollar = 2 Belizian dollars. Sapphire was secluded and quite, right on the Caribbean but easy to access town. Unit's have kitchens and big front porches to enjoy the surrounding beauty!
What makes this Condo unique
Location! Barrier reef to snorkel or dive right in front of the resort. Our own dive shop for tours as well. Concierge service and an incredible staff. Very safe!
Our unit is non smoking. Please respect this very important rule for us and others. No pets. No unregistered guests. Please turn the Air Conditioners down when leaving for more than a few hours, but please leave on. Please be respectful to the staff and all other guests and have a relaxing blast!

Everything was wonderful. Highly recommended
Stayed for a week. Had a great time. Love this resort and all it’s amenities
A wonderful get-away-from-winter destination
This was our 2nd visit to Ambergris Caye; 10 years ago we stayed at Captain Morgan's, now too big/busy for our tastes. Sapphire Beach Resort is a lovely place, not too fancy & certainly not rustic. We don't like the hustle & bustle of big resorts & busy towns, so being 10 hot, dusty and bumpy-road miles from town was fine. On site golf cart rentals were helpful for when we wanted to explore (north to Tranquility Bay and west to the Secret Beach) or simply needed to restock our groceries.
This unit was exactly as advertised - clean, simple, very comfortable, and well furnished. The owner was very accommodating & responsive whenever we had questions. He even readily agreed to our request for an in-room safe; it was installed within a few days of our arrival.
Resort staff are terrific! From the office to housekeeping to property maintenance to the restaurant - everyone was friendly & helpful. A number of owners were present (nice to meet them!) but most visitors seemed to stay for a week or less, so the resort was on the quiet side, great from our perspective. We spent many afternoons in the shade in & around one of the 3 pools on our own & were very relaxed when we finally had to head home. Having the restaurant on site was helpful - the food was very good, reasonably priced and lots of it. The book and DVD library in the office was also very good, since there is no cable TV in this unit. The wifi service was upgraded while we were there, a definite improvement though still a bit unpredictable. When all else failed, we could go over to the office area and use their network.
We are both avid snorkelers - that aspect of our 5-week stay was a bit disappointing. We had hoped to be able to kayak out to the reef for regular snorkels from shore (as we had done 10 years ago), but we're 10 years older (68!) and that distance kayaking is getting to be a bit much, plus there was a pretty strong breeze/wind most of the time making the kayaking more challenging. Instead we took advantage of the No Worries Tours on site and had several snorkel trips that were terrific - Holchan Cut & Shark/Ray Alley (twice), Mexico Rocks (twice) and Caye Caulker.
Having access to complimentary bicycles was fun - if you go early enough in the morning, the heat isn't too bad and the exercise is great.
We recommend this location for anyone looking for a quiet get-away. The beach is shallow, they work very hard to keep it clean and it's good for adults & kids alike.
Beautiful place to stay
The beauty and seclusion of this resort is worth the fun drive! The staff was wonderful. We had left an article of clothing at a resort in town and the management bent over backwards to find it for us. The condos are pretty and comfortable. The pools are awesome, all 3 of them! The beach is beautiful and the guys from "No Worries" tours also went out of their way to make our stay special. Contact them if you want to go fishing, snorkeling, etc. They are knowledgeable and fun. I will definitely stay there again.
Thank you for everything!
