Mayan Princess Hotel is located on the finest beach in San Pedro, Belize - as a result all rooms afford panoramic ocean views from their very own private balcony. No other hotel on Ambergris Caye offers quite the same atmosphere or friendly service. Rooms are furnished with a wide range of practical amenities, and all include a well equipped kitchenette. We offer many complimentary hotel services as well including WiFi, use of sun loungers, and a private dock for use by our guests. We are also less than 100 ft away from both of Ambergris Caye's water taxi services. We take pride in the value that we offer to guests, and in addition to great rates, all children under 12 stay for free. Numerous activities and tours such as scuba diving, snorkeling, cultural and jungle tours can also be arranged through Mayan Princess Hotel. Our staff are here to help make your Belize vacation as relaxing (or as exciting) as you desire. If diving is part of your vacation plans, we are conveniently located steps away from Amigos Del Mar dive center, located on the Dock right across from the Hotel. Enjoy the best of both worlds - stay with Mayan Princess Hotel, dive with Amigos Del Mar! The many dive sites dotted around Ambergris Caye are renowned for offering some of the best diving in the Caribbean. The incredible Blue Hole is also a popular option with our diving guests. The nearby Belize Barrier Reef harbors over 500 species of exotic fish and a whole host of other marine wildlife, including some of the world's most impressive corals. We look forward to welcoming you to Mayan Princess Hotel and Ambergris Caye!

I liked the hotel. Staff were very nice and helpful. Well located on the beach one block north of the park/water taxi. Nice room, nice patio overlooking the beach and the ocean. Hotel entrance was a bit hidden from the street down the short alley to the beach, not well marked. Not specifically an issue with the hotel, but the sargassum grass was heavy on the beach (It was one week after hurricane) and did not smell good. The town/island needs to spend more effort getting that stuff cleaned up in a timely manner. It makes the beach area unusable.

Nothing to say but good things. I loved this place. The staff is the best on the island, they clean the rooms very well, and the amenities are top-of-the-line. There is a shady rasta that sells herb out front but those guys are everywhere.

Great place to stay if you come for scuba diving. Excellent Wi-Fi, large rooms with fully equipped kitchen. Beautiful view of the sea from the room balcony and very quiet all day long. Walking distance to any diving shop. No restaurant is available on the premises but many places to eat within walking distance from the hotel.

We were in San Ignacio when Hurricane Lisa decided to come toward Belize. We had a reservation at the Mayan Princess on Tuesday, all flights to Ambergris Caye stopped at 2pm on Tuesday and we had a 12:40 flight to the island. We had no idea what to do or where we would be safest. I called the Mayan Princess and spoke with Marla who tried to assist me and answer my questions to enable me to make the best decision while trying to predict the weather! lol Thankfully, we decided to continue with our plans and went to Ambergris Caye. This is this a nice little hotel where the rooms feel like a small condo and in it's in an excellent location to walk to everything, but the staff is the best part. Marla, Manny and the rest of the staff were so wonderful during what was a stressful time for us - being this was our first hurricane! lol They made sure we had plenty of water, a battery operated lantern and kept calling to check on us. We definitely felt well cared for during our stay and it lowered our stress level immensely! Thankfully, Lisa decided to spare Ambergris Caye but had she made things more difficult it is nice to know that the Mayan Princess has a generator so we would have still had water had the electricity gone out! Definitely recommend this hotel!

The room was clean, nicely furnished, had all the kitchen amenities I needed (including bottled water), was quiet and cool. It is located next to the dive shop I used and near several groceries and excellent restaurants. The staff was probably the best part, though. Everyone was very nice with smiles and greetings and I felt like they wanted my stay to be comfortable. They arranged my diving and COVID test for return to the US and provided towels and a hammock for the balcony. I felt safe (travelling as a single female). I'd definitely stay there again.

Use caution staying here! Crime is on the increase here in San Pedro! This is our third (and last) time at this hotel, and the first time we’ve had a problem. The hotel opens onto “crime” alley! As for the hotel itself, the location is fine and the day staff is caring and helpful! Need outside security in the alley at night!

fantastic location for san pedro. so easy to do random day trips (snorkeling, a trip back to the mainland to see some mayan ruins) especially bc the front desk books EVERYTHING. the company they work with (tuff e nuff) is comprehensive in service and competitive in price. the staff is always helpful, friendly, and available. i would definitely stay here again.

Frankly we will never come back to San Pedro until the issue with the sargasse is not solved… which could last a century. And they’re many other reasons but one very good point there was the Mayan Princess: perfect location (you can reach everything by foot), beautiful view and fantastic service. Room was perfect and we really enjoyed the kind support of Samantha and Alma. Thanks again and let’s hope the best for you!

We're glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Mayan Princess during your recent trip to San Pedro. Our location and views are popular reasons why people enjoy staying with us. As you experienced, seagrass occasionally accumulates on the shore but is quickly washed away. There’s so much more to see and do in Ambergris Caye – do come back again!

Excellent place to stay, near all the dive shops and literally a stones throw from the water taxi terminal. Clean, comfortable, close to everything. Bed was comfortable,shower was nice. Staff really went out of the way for me when AirBNB stole my money.
