Three weeks ago, we were on a chartered catamaran anchored near the Isla Marisol Resort when an accident occurred. I slipped and opened a big gash in my elbow. Our captain radioed Isla Marisol Resort and they told us to come over thinking they could provide medical treatment. It turned out that I needed sutures and they arranged my transportation...

It's always nice to "get away from it all". Isla Mirasol certainly provides that and largely in a very nice way. Accommodations are minimal but certainly sufficient and really no different than my expectations. The best cabanas are right on the water, with the water lapping the shore right below your deck. The staff were a wonderful bunch of people,...

This simple resort is isolated on Glovers Reef, so be prepared to dive or snorkel 3-4 times a day or read 15 books! Nicely designed, very simple, dependent on generator power (which can be problematic). Do NOT count on any kind of consistent WiFi signal (this is in critical need of an update). Staff are lovely people. Dive operation is...

Isla Marisol: Add one part tropical island. One part ocean breeze. One part sunshine. And a big helping of local staff to complete the Marisol experience. Eddie and Mr. Willis have assembled a wonderful group of people who make staying in paradise, paradise. Celso Mora is a wonderful Divemaster, knowledgeable and fun. His colleagues Meaghan and Casey are excellent guides...

It's a trek to get to Glovers Reef, but I would go back in a minute. We went in mid-January and we did have a full week of rain :( but the diving was great and the crew and employees excellent. I am very much interested in conservation, there was a dive instructor that came in from Hawaii with a...

If you want a resort, you don't want Isla Marisol. If you even want something with say... Holiday Inn Standards, this is not the place for you. Isla Marisol is, more or less, rustic. There is running water, and electricity, but I found both to be... intermittent. The electrical wiring in my shower was stripped, which caused sparks to fly...

Isla Marisol Resort is not the Ritz nor the Holiday Inn, everything you mention has been fixed. We're located 36 mile's off the coast and our power is solar and generator, we try our best to provide a service that we feel will make our guest comfortable and enjoy and off the beaten path experience. the comments about us trying...

Wonderful, friendly staff. The snorkeling was great--the best we've ever had. The guide found and pointed out so many things to us. The other guests were mostly families with older children who were delightful to be around. The scuba divers reported great dives and even brought back lionfish for dinner one day. We would love to go back.

We've been to many reef sites in the Caribbean area, but Isla Marisol is the best. Your very own casual cabana with a hammock beside the sea, a staff that's open, friendly, kind, knowledgeable, helpful, willing and professional (hey guys, that's you!). The food is excellent! and plenty of it - even my hollow-legged honey had enough and loved it....

Our notes: -The resort is a very kid-friendly place -Despite reviews to the contrary, there was ample hot water and electricity, due to the resort's careful installation of eco-friendly solar thermal hot water and solar photovoltaic panels for power. -Staff went way out of their way to give us extra guidance in sea kayaking, paddle-boarding for our child, snorkeling, as...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Isla Marisol Resort lies on a pristine, secluded palm-studded island on Glover's Reef Atoll (a UN World Heritage site) in Belize. Of the five inhabited island on Glover's Reef, Isla Marisol is the only one offering private en-suite bathrooms, fresh water showers, hot and cold water, air conditioning, and daily housekeeping service. Isla Marisol Resort also offers frosty cold libations at our infamous "over the water" bar and phenomenal Belizean style food in our dining room. Incredible watersports are just a stone's throw from the resort, with most diving and snorkeling sites just 5-15 minutes from the island. All ages and experience welcome! Anglers can hit the "grand-slam" from their front porch, with World class fly fishing for tarpon, permit, and bonefish, quite literally at our door step. Daily deep sea fishing trips for Wahoo, Kingfish, Marlin, and a host of other fun fish, depart from Isla Marisol daily. ... more   less
