The Jaguar Reef Lodge & Spa in Belize is a fan favorite for its bar-none customer service and location directly on the beach. This hotel deems itself "a scuba diver's paradise" with an on-site PADI dive center and thousands of acres of coral reef to scuba dive and snorkel.
Oceanfront cabanas have a partial ocean view and are 60 feet from the ocean, while beachfront cabanas have a private porch enveloped in lush vines and two hammocks to nap in. Each cabana has a thatched roof, air conditioning, authentic tile floors, and a water dispenser. The bathrooms have his-and-her sinks and a walk-in shower with rain showerhead.
The outdoor activities available at no cost are what set this hotel apart. Guests can explore the crystal clear waters in a kayak for a serene experience, or get a workout in on the water with a paddleboard. Bikes are ready for a ride into town for fresh seafood and authentic paella. After all the activities, get one of the hotel attendees to pull down a coconut from the trees for a refreshing sip. Or lounge at the swim-up bar and have a drink poolside.
The hotel boasts a full-service restaurant offering fresh, local cuisine like pan-seared farm-raised shrimp in white wine, cilantro, lime and garlic butter. After dinner, soak in the best view of the sunset under a palm tree with lights wrapped around the trunk, the sound of the waves and your feet dug in the sand.
