Condo/Apartment
This ground floor condo is in a 13 unit beachfront complex just south of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye -- the Belize Barrier Reef is only ½ mile (1 km) away and you can see the waves crashing over it from the resort. What a view! You enter the condo via the porch into the spacious living/dining area. You’ll find comfortable chairs and a couch (which converts to a queen sleeper sofa) as well as dining seating for four both at the table and the counter. Just beyond is the fully equipped kitchen, and a little farther is the full bath. The bedroom with queen bed is in the back of the condo. --------------------------------- Condo amenities: *Wifi *Central air *Ceiling fans *Cable TV *Local phone *Bed linens *Towels: dish, hand, bath & beach *Fully equipped kitchen *Paper goods *Personal soap ...This ground floor condo is in a 13 unit beachfront complex just south of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye -- the Belize Barrier Reef is only ½ mile (1 km) away and you can see the waves crashing over it from the resort.

About the neighbourhood
Ambergris Caye, “La Isla Bonita”, is a popular tourist destination. The Belize Barrier Reef, the longest in the western hemisphere, is just ~1/2 mile (1km) off shore. The water is warm and crystal clear--ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing. It's also easy to take a day trip from the resort to visit Mayan sites such as Altun Ha and Lamanai; or a trip to observe some of the 500 species of birds found in Belize and/or catch a glimpse of monkeys, manatees and crocodiles in the wild! San Pedro is a quaint little town of about 13,000 residents that has retained its charm while handling the growing number of visitors. Sunset Beach Resort is located 2.5 miles/4 km south of the town core, which means you are away from the crowds yet still within easy reach of everything. Not only will...
Getting around
Most people rent golf carts when visiting Ambergris Caye (it’s not possible to rent a car). Our concierge team can arrange your golf cart rental and have it waiting for you at Sunset Beach on your arrival if you wish. Rental costs depend on the cart size and time of year but start at about US$275/week. As mentioned, there are also complimentary bikes & kayaks available at the resort. It’s about a 10 minute bike ride into town. It’s also possible to walk to town, either via the beach (40 minutes to an hour, depending on how fast you walk) or via the road (slightly longer). Taxis are also available.
