We did not stay at Captain Morgan’s but we did venture over to eat dinner at the Tuesday night Belizean buffet and it was very good. They set up tables around the pool area and have live music. The food was great and they had a coconut cream dessert that was absolutely wonderful. The casino looked very nice but we...

My husband Kevin and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. What a great place. It is very laid back and all the staff treated us like family. From the guy who picked us from the water taxi to the man who raked the sand every day, the whole staff were very friendly and helpful. Gilbert was always around and...

We went to Belize from our home in Las Vegas in search of adventure, Belize birds and wildlife. We were not disappointed. We travelled by small charter planes throughout Belize on Tropc Air which offered many flights daily to all areas. We spent a few days at Captain Morgans after 5 days at Chan Chich Lodge in the interior jungle...

I have to say that we were not overly impressed with Captain Morgans. When a $250 per night room doesn't come with a jug of potable water, something isn't right. We got treated better at much smaller, cheaper and more quaint locations (and got free drinking water). They also charge their guests for the boat shuttle back and forth to...

We had a great stay at Captain Morgan. Some staff were definately friendlier than others. Generally we found the people of Ambergris Caye more jaded toward tourists than the inland towns. We decided to leave a day early in order to make our mad dash for the airport less stressful and the staff were super accommodating. There was no cancellation...

This resort is well managed and provides that tropical feel its customers are looking for. The property is well maintained and provides lots of amenities. The customer service was good in the different areas of the resort and most everyone seemed to truly care about the guests. The food was great and the lettuce was the freshest we saw anywhere...

My husband and I spent a week in a one-bedroom, ocean-front condo. It was very clean and modern. All the amenities you would expect. We had a wonderful time and the staff made us feel truly welcome. The restaurant on-site was convenient as the resort is four miles north of town.

We stopped by for an afternoon lunch and drinks and to view the resort...not only were the wait staff unknowledgable, but no friendly. Seems to be fairly common practice to seperate the drink bill from the food bill, but they had it all messed up! Wasn't impressed by the pool, bar or resort...I wouldn't want to stay here!

First and foremost, thank you for stopping off for an afternoon lunch, Captain Morgan’s may be a resort but we are proud to offer those passing by the opportunity to relax for a few hours. Captain Morgan’s is proud of our bar & restaurant with the large pool and the spectacular Caribbean beach in the foreground. There are three freshwater...
