We have been to San Pedro and North Ambergris resorts every year for going on 20 years now, got married there. This is by far the worst trip we had, food terrible, service worse. Owner/manager? very unpleasant person, won't be back Mike!

I had a great time here. Scuba Steve got me my certification and I had a blast. The hotel was very relaxing and Michael was very friendly. I would strongly recommend staying here to any travelers. As a single woman traveling alone, I felt very safe and comfortable. I would definitely come back.

We had some fun on the trip but were disappointed by a few things and surprised by others. If you plan on visiting, we highly recommend taking the day trip to Lamanai (Mayan ruins). Unexpectedly, we did not have a single bad meal at any restaurant, and had 3 incredible meals at Rojo. The meals at Xaman Ek were also...

Just returned from 5 days at Xaman Ek on Ambergris Caye. It is 5 units tucked into the quiet beachfront 5 miles north of San Pedro. Spacious, clean, relaxed atmosphere. Mike, the owner, goes out of his way to arrange a getaway matched to your desires. Some may choose a treatment at the spa on the premises. We dove every...

Wow! Where to begin... Xaman Ek was nothing less then a HUGE DISAPOINTMENT!!! If we can sway anyone reading these forums to stay elsewhere then we have helped with the enjoyment of their trip. From arrival it wasn't what we had imagined. The pictures on line are exaggerated and clearly photo shopped. The suite was large but very unpleasant. My...
