Top Reviews of Paradise - Our Guests Say it Best!


The glowing testimonials of our guests speak volumes! We're immensely thankful for everyone who visits our hidden gem of an island retreat. The outpouring of positive feedback has been so overwhelming that we feel compelled to spread the word about these exceptional experiences! Scroll to read more!!


"My wife and I stayed here for a week in April of 2024 and I can confidently say it was the best vacation we have been on! The staff was the friendliest of any resort we have been to and knew our names and what we did and didn't like after day 1. The location was amazing and the sunsets were amazing from the dock in front of our room. We met wonderful people and made friends that I think we will stay in contact with and hopefully are able to meet again in St. George's caye. The food was outstanding, the amenities were amazing and the freedom to do whatever we wanted whenever we wanted was so nice compared to the large resorts we have been to. We Kayaked, fished, swam and played right off the dock. Spent hours in the pool and relaxed and played games on the beach. We saw dolphins, rays, barracudas, and manatees from our front porch!! The excursions were amazing and we had so much fun seeing the Mayan ruins and spending time in San Pedro! We were fortunate to meet and hang out with amazing people. I can't say enough good things about this little resort and HIGHLY recommend it. We will be returning for sure and can't wait to get there!"


We didn't really know what to expect when we booked this trip. We were not disappointed!! We loved the peaceful atmosphere, the friendly staff and all the fun things to do. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We loved meeting other guests and getting to know them. We stayed a week so we had plenty of time to go on excursions and also have days to relax and unwind. We can't wait to go again sometime! 


This resort is very relaxing and quiet. I think that's what I loved most about it. The staff is very friendly and attentive to everyone's needs. The food was delicious and I absolutely enjoyed the family style sitting arrangement for meals. We got to know many wonderful people (all of which, happened to be from the USA). My husband and I stayed in the over the water cabanas. The sunsets were amazing! I can't wait to go back.


A true hidden gem. Our experience at St George's Caye was nothing short of perfect. As I followed their social media for nearly a year leading up to our visit, they exceeded all our expectations plus some.

We stayed in an over-water cabana, which I highly recommend, although all the cabanas looked perfect. We did learn that if you keep the bathroom door closed, the room stayed much cooler. A tray of coffee, tea and juice is waiting for you outside your door every morning. I loved sitting on our porch with my coffee (which was delicious) listening to all the birds and watching the fish splash around.
The food was absolutely amazing! You get a made to order breakfast at your leisure, from which you have a menu to choose from. Then, a set lunch and a set four-course dinner. I'm gluten sensitive and they accommodated my dietary restrictions with ease. You will not be disappointed by a single thing served. The guys in that kitchen have truly mastered their craft.

Excursions were seamless and everything is taken care of ahead of time. We did the Mayan Ruins, which was breathtaking. Cornell met us with plaintain chips, which was cool. He took us to our guide, Isidrio, who was probably the best tour guide we could have asked for! We also did snorkeling at the reef. There were a lot of first-timers, including myself, and Freddie made us all feel so comfortable and safe. He knew the best spots and made sure mother nature put on a show for us. He was fantastic.

Each captain we had made our boat rides comfortable. Our last day was a little windy. Our captain took a detour through the mangroves to make for a smoother ride.

Saving the best for last, the entire staff is really what makes this place so special. They make you feel more like a friend than just some tourist passing through. We interacted most with Elmer and he really made our vacation something special. He made sure all of our wants and needs were accommodated, got to know us, played great music and kept our drinks flowing. Elmer, we'll be back to see you! Jose at the bar was great too. He told us about some of the island's history when i asked about pictures at the bar. And he is the man to ask about the puzzles. If you go, you'll know. The gals in the office, Jahnene and Iris, took care of all the financials and it was so nice to finally meet them after months of communication.

Note: at the end of your stay, suggested gratuity is on the entire stay. This is because it is shared with all the employees. This is something we weren't accustomed to and wish we had known beforehand. We'll be better prepared next time because they definitely deserve it.

Overall, I wish I could give more than 5 stars. It was better than we could have asked for, and we're already planning our return. 

St. George's Caye Resort is found 7-miles from main-land Belize City. Transfers are made by boat and once you have landed at BZE International Airport, your valet will have you on the island's sandy shores in under 30 minutes. Offering an array of adventure, romance, relaxation and SCUBA excursions, this resort is acclaimed for pristine reefs, seclusion and the ability to do as much or as little as one wishes.
