From Tripadvisor - Corydon, Tennessee
Iz, the owner of Playa Del Sol, is a world traveler and lived many years in Belize. We were so impressed by the house that he intelligently designed. He was always available to us if we needed anything.
The boat captains were the most experienced guides we encountered. They know the water inside and out and can take you snorkeling, fishing, hunting for conch and know all the best places. We encountered dolphins, tarpon and turtles because they knew where to look.
Chris is one of the best bartenders on Ambergris Caye and creates delicious drinks. At the El Norte bar you can also enjoy amazing Belizean food. The bar is always available whenever you need that afternoon delight.
I must say, we loved everything about the house. All the furniture is from hand crafted local hardwoods that Iz personally designed. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was very easy to cook our freshly caught fish each night. There is a big screen TV, DVD player, and good Wi-Fi too. The rooms upstairs have A/C, which we rarely needed.
E-mail Iz and make a reservation now! You will most likely never find another place like this.
Coming to Playa Del Sol was worth every penny spent, we forgot about our stresses of work and got lost in amazing island life. Without hesitation, I would recommend coming here again and again!
From management; After 6 months later they stayed with us again.

This resort is amazing - everything you want to do for your daily activities is here! A boat with a captain, snorkeling and fishing guides that know the history of the island. Iz, the owner will help you plan your activities and will take care of all the arrangements. All you do is show up. Our golf cart trip into San Pedro will always be a memory. The restaurant and bar serves the best authentic cuisine and drinks. The staff are always on time and dependable. This was far my favorite vacation and planning my next trip for next year. The owners are very special people. Highly recommended!!!!
From management; They already booked 3 villas for 2018.

My family stayed at Playa Del Sol and we had such a great time! We felt completely at home on the property: cooking for ourselves in our accommodations, sharing Helen's amazing cocktails at the bar, playing dice with Iz and Shae, reading in the hammocks hung at the end of the pier, and starting up games of volleyball and washers. Exploring the coral reefs and fishing for our own dinner (catching lobster!) was an awesome experience. Iz led us to a wide variety of interesting local restaurants in San Pedro and was so informative and flexible with our schedules. Iz and Shae have created a gorgeous guest home with a simple elegance and attention to detail that is really lovely. We can't press enough what wonderful, interesting and fun hosts they were. Staying at Playa Del Sol made for the sweetest end to a terrific family vacation.

Playa Del Sol impresses from the moment you dock at the pier and enter the lush, landscaped grounds, but its biggest draw is that it is only 1,000 yards from the reef. The unique architecture, blending tropical charm, Mediterranean sophistication and Belizean craftsmanship, is designed to merge indoor and outdoor living into one seamless experience.

Get couples massage on the pier. Hang out in our tiki bar for exotic drinks and local soul food or take a nap on the hammocks on our very private pier. You will be surrounded by hundreds of coconut trees. During the day you will see exotic birds hunting on the flat water. You can fish snappers, tarpons and barracudas from the pier afternoon time. We have diving companies around us. They are famous for friendly service and are knowledgeable about their job. They will pick you up from our pier at no extra cost.
