This wasn't originally our first choice, but glad we ended up here. They sent a cab which was ready on our arrival from the water taxi and provided fresh ceviche with chips and rum punch when we arrived. They setup a private custom fishing/snorkeling trip for us that was really great, and not much more money than just the snorkeling trip we had planned. They tried to get us to book golf cart rental through the company the use, but we chose another company that was half the price - but it was double the problems (flat tires, dead batteries and long story short, we ended up going through 3 different golf carts before the week was over). I would recommend going with their suggested golf cart recommendation despite the extra cost, which is really close in price to other local companies. Everything was top notch and are finishing our week here having had a great time.

It's hard to decide where to start, as this property is so incredible! Our family had a video call with Stephanie (property manager) before our arrival. She helped us plan our vacation and answered all of our questions about the new protocols in place due to COVID-19. She and Cameron kept in constant communication before and after this call, making everything so easy for us. When we arrived, we knew exactly what to expect - it was like clockwork!

Felix greeted us upon arrival at the resort and was easily accessible by phone all through our stay. He also came to check on us by the pool and out on the pier on separate occasions. He, like every employee at the resort, wore masks. The groundskeeper wore gloves as he cleaned the beach furniture frequently. We felt very safe.

Our condo was gorgeously appointed and perfect for our family. The views from the balcony were so amazing that it's hard to put into words! We had so much fun using the kayaks and paddle boards, and even had a few corn hole tournaments on the beach! The grounds are very well maintained with lush landscaping everywhere.

We used Seaduced by Belize for all of our tours, and Gustavo made us feel so special. He's also very knowledgeable, and we learned so much about Belize from him. We wouldn't use anyone else besides Seaduced for tours after the wonderful experience we had.

It was so hard to leave this perfect little slice of paradise, but we'll be back, and will definitely stay at Hol Chan Reef Resort & Villas again.

The view was breath taking and the acomidations were so relaxing. Away from the hussle and bussle but close enough that every thing you want to do is a short ride away. The staff is attentive and eager to help with navigating the island and making sure everything is spotless at the resort.

The property was amazing and the people at the resort were awesome, but our group was disappointed. The ad said there were two king beds and 2 double beds. Actually, there was only one king, one queen and a set of twins which could be pulled together. A big reason we choose Hol Chan Villa and Suites (HCVS) was for the two king beds. There was a huge difference on the bedrooms as well. The master suite was large while the other rooms were dark and small…our friends compromised so we could make it work.
The kitchen was minimally appointed. There was a discrepancy between what was on the shelf and what the label said as to numbers of items. Little things that would have made a difference were missing…there was no plastic wrap, no foil, no baggies, no BBQ utensils or stuff for Briquette BBQ, a 1/3 cup measuring cup only, no microwave cover, no cooking oil, no laundry soap, no cleaning products other than dish and dishwasher soap, one roll of paper towel and two or 3 rolls of toilet paper for an 11 day stay. We were informed we had to buy anything else at our expense.
The drapes in the master bedroom were not black out so we could read in bed at 6 am. They did not cover the window so there limited privacy with us being beside the pool.
You had to be a rocket scientist to figure out the TV (at least on Superbowl day) Superbowl because we could not connect. Both toilets had some issues with plugging where we had to call someone in. The beach has only 2 Palapalas and no umbrellas. Lawn furniture was also scarce and or nonexistent on busy days when all 16of the suites are occupied.
As I said earlier though the location itself was amazing. The people at the hotel were available, helpful and friendly (except Superbowl night). The bartender Edwin was a pleasure and made great drinks.
It would not take much to have made our experience more positive. We would go back but it was not as positive as it could have been. It would not cost much to add in these things. You also definitely need a golf cart, it was waiting for us when we arrived at the property.
We felt for what we were paying there should have been more attention to detail.
The internet was sporadic as was the cell reception.

My wife and I joined another couple at the Hol Chan Reef Resort for about a week over Christmas (Dec 2021). It was a great resort with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean from huge ceiling to floor windows that looked out directly over the water. My wife loved to wake up and spend the morning just looking out at the beautiful clear-blue water.
The condo is very modern and well equipped with a great kitchen and TVs in every room with fast internet service. The local hosts were very professional and available for us if we had any needs or questions but let us have our space as well. Overall, a fabulous experience and we'll be back!

This resort was just perfect for our girls trip! The concierge Sandra might just be the kindest most helpful person we have ever met! The 3 bedroom 2 bathroom condo had absolutely everything we needed...from beach towels to a fully stocked kitchen. The balcony was roomy with seating at a table and lounge chairs with a beautiful ocean view. Beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked great especially in the bedrooms! Lounging at one of the 2 pools, or out on the sand by the ocean was so relaxing! The condo was in a great location, south of all the busy and noisy down town.
Sandra was so helpful before and during our trip, no question was too big or too small. Sandra did everything from helping schedule transportation to recommend great dining options! ( we LOVED Someplace South and it was just down the road) Richard helped with any activities and was so responsive and happy to help facilitate every activity we wanted to do ( Snorkel The Hol Chan reef!!!)

The hosts, Cameron and Stephanie, were amazing! They arranged our transportation from the airport, assisted us with renting our golf cart ahead of time so it was waiting for us when we arrived, and gave great recommendations on excursions and had the tour company meet us in the condo to make all the arrangements. The grounds were very clean, and we had our own private sandy beach. We will definitely be coming back!

We returned from a week at Hol Chan Reef Villas yesterday. Our group of 10 booked 2 units (4D and 1E) and could not have been happier. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The pools were gorgeous and the paddle boards and kayaks were great. It's quiet and in a great, safe location. The best part about a stay at Hol Chan is the concierge, Sandra. She took incredible care of our group! Meeting us upon arrival with fresh made ceviche and rum punch. Booking us dinner reservations when we were going to be away from cell service for the day and unable to book our own. And booking sending 2 ladies from Rose Spa to give us massages in our room on a rainy day within an hour of our request.
The cleaning team was also lovely as was the maintenance team who we met a couple of times during our stay.
Thank you Hol Chan! We will be back.

Hol Chan was awesome! We stayed in 4D and it was perfect for us. The elevator doesn’t work because they are waiting for a part but that is no fault of Hol Chan. Everyone is waiting for parts everywhere. Sandra and Yolanda from Suya Management helped us so very much with everything from organizing and booking excursions to getting more water to decorating for our daughters 18th birthday and ordering birthday cake, lining up shuttle rides and golf carts and airfare from Belize City to San Pedro, restaurant reservations and recommendations. All of it was taken care of perfectly. 5 stars!!

This was our second time staying at this resort. Einer (the booking agent), Sandra (the concierge), and the whole Suya team are incredible. Our unit (1A) was impeccably cleaned and well stocked. It is oceanfront and has beach rentals included. If you are contemplating visiting San Pedro, book it! The people of Belize are the best in the world. This property is about a 15 minute ride to downtown. I would recommend renting a golf cart (can be done through the hotel). Truly an amazing experience!

There was not one while we were there the beginning of November. There was a bar that was open directly across the street that serves pizza, but otherwise no on site bar/restaurant.

Not really. It's not a really attractive beach per se. Mostly seaweed and sea grass out for at least 1/4 mile
