If you want to be near people, restaurants and shops this is not the place for you. We had a great stay at Sapphire. Took a snorkel tour and day trip to Secret Beach. Very nice resort and staff. Thank you.

Thank you for your review. It gives us great pleasure to know you had a wonderful stay at our location.

Our location gives us a nice white beach and easy access to snorkeling, diving and fishing.

We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Sally's Villa # 11 is located in the #1 spot of all Sapphire Beach Resort. It is steps away from the beach with picture-perfect views. My husband and I rented the villa for a month as we wanted to take advantage of "work from anywhere" so we did and worked from Belize for a month in Sally's Villa. There was stable enough internet to accommodate our Zoom calls and Netflix addictions.. My husband worked from the table in the back porch looking out at the beach as I worked from the Kitchen table looking out at the beach. Our work back-drop never looked so good. The Villa Itself - Adorable, very clean, and spacious. It has a great loft for the kids to sleep in and 2 master bedrooms. A full-service kitchen, washer machine and dryer.
Sapphire Beach Resort - It is not your typical resort. It felt like a condo community with 3 pools and a pool bar. The main office is an intake room, don't expect your traditional lobby. The restaurant the Gem, has a limited menu but the food was very good. The security guard and ground keepers were super nice and kept the place safe and immaculate.
Location - Sapphire Beach is located on the North side of the island. Be prepared that this will take you 45-60 minutes to get to town with your Golf Cart. The roads are pretty bad. Sometimes it was fun, others it made an already timely commute worse. Most tours are from the main land and that is an hour and 45 min water taxi and when you add a 45 min Golf Cart ride you are 2.5Hrs in and your tour hasn't started. When you land from the airport in Belize City, you must take a 25 taxi to the water taxi, then the water taxi is 45min and then the golf cart ride is 45min. Keep this in mind when you are booking your flights home. Make sure you coordinate it with either the Water Taxi schedule of the inter-Island flight schedule. I have to say, with all that, I would still stay here again. I just wish I really understood the location better as I would have been better prepared. The Beach - The beaches were not what I expected of Belize. They were full of Sargasmn (seaweed). Apparently, May is the season. I am a beach person and I did not go in the water the entire month I was staying 20ft away. The smell was pretty awful at times. We sort of got used to it. The groundsman were out there from 6am - 3pm every day removing what they could. They never really won the race. However, If you took a boat just past the seaweed, the water is stunning. All in all, I have to say - I LOVED my time at Sally's place. If you have any doubts if Belize is safe. It is. I never for a second felt that it wasn't. The people are friendly and pleasant!

Room tip: Villa #11 is the best view of the entire resort

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure hosting you for a month, and it seems as if you had a wonderful stay.

We will pass all your positive comments onto the staff.

Our location as described is 9 miles north of San Pedro, which is one of our selling points for many guests. It places us in a location that is close to snorkeling, diving and fishing.

Unfortunately sargassum has been intermittently hitting Belize, Mexico and the Caribbean for many years now. It is unpredictable and as you point out when it does hit our grounds staff work tirelessly to keep it under control.

The positive is that it is not always around. Most of 2020 we did not get it coming in. We have three pools to swim in and our onsite tour company which is PADI/SSI certified will take you from our dock and organize mainland tours, snorkeling, diving and fishing trips.

Our resort is the perfect place to spend an extended vacation or a working vacation.

We hope to welcome you back and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Iam a Travel Agent from Canada, I have traveled all over the world I can tell you Belize is beautiful and staying at Sapphire Beach Resort was excellent. First of all the drive out was fun, lots of pot holes to avoid sometimes water to avoid as well. We drove back and forth to town alot and had a great time, the more we did it the quicker we got! No room is a bad room, we had everything we needed in the room, toilet paper, everything to cook with, lots of towels, beach towels, hair dryer, full kitchen,and clean bedding. There are paddle boards and kayaks, the staff at the dive shop will help you with anything you need. The front desk staff (Jose) is amazing, reach out to him for all your questions or anything you need while there. Night security fantastic, asked us if we needed anything in a rain storm, brought us water, I looked out my window at 420 am and seen him patrolling the dock. Chef Tony and staff, excellent food ask him to cook you the catch of the day! We couldn't be happier with the resort the pools and the people.
The Reef is litterally 1/4 mile away, kayak or paddle board to it, don't forget to ask the dive shop for some snokel gear!
Have a great stay at Sapphire Beach and feel right at home like we did!

We recently spent a week at Sapphire. The complex is clean and beautifully groomed, the beach is secluded, and the staff is so friendly. The resort is a distance from town, but it’s a perfect distance if you are looking for a quiet retreat.
However, it’s an easy golf cart ride into town for groceries (or to spend the day), or to secret beach. Consider a golf cart for the duration of your stay - makes it easier to come and go.
The food at Gem was delicious, and the staff was welcoming. A very big thank you to Tony and Jessica for their hospitality every morning!

We stayed a week. The restaurant was great to eat at and our condo was right by the pool. Wonderful views but as they stress, it is a long ride to town. With that, it’s quiet and a great place to relax. Rent a golf cart from the resort that way if there’s an issue you’re covered. Bring up so groceries from town. There must be 9 stores in San Pedro. If you want action and multiple restaurants and bars at your disposal this is NOT the place for you.
