Princess Party

Paul and I sometimes reminisce about how we miss living in town -everything was so close and easy. We decided to recapture that feeling this weekend and spend a night at The Mayan Princess Hotel.

On the way our princess party we both agreed that first order of business was to turn the A/C up and cool down for a bit. When we got there we were pleasantly surprised – the ocean breeze was more than enough and we did not even use the A/C or ceiling fans.

Our room was very well set up; open concept, comfortable king size bed, living room area, kitchen, and lots of space to put our stuff. Best of all, big french doors with a fantastic view. We both headed straight for the veranda and spent a lot of time staring at the sea and people watching.

Even though I really liked the fact that we had a small kitchen with cooking options in our room there was no way I was going to be doing any cooking – fridge did get well used for snacks and drinks though. We opted for Banh Mi Belize at Lola’s – 2 minutes down the road and the obvious choice for dinner. We walked over and ordered our food (beef tacos and a shrimp rice bowl) then proceeded to DandE’s for dessert before dinner while Cori was making our food. I had lemon sorbet with a fudge bulls eye and Paul went for peanut butter ice cream with a fudge bulls eye and peanuts on top – both on sugar cones of course.

The next morning my internal alarm clock had me up at 5:00 AM to catch the sunrise – unfortunately mother nature was feeling cloudy. A while later I went to go get some milk for our iced coffee and was pleasantly surprised to find continental breakfast in the lobby so I made us a tray and brought it back up to our room.

Seashell – I can see why this is your favorite place to stay when you come to Ambergris Caye. Thanks to Christine and Dennis for encouraging us to give it a try and the Mayan Princess staff for making our stay a great one.

Hey Tacogirl! 🙂 What room were you in? I’ve never had the luxury of a king-sized bed. Always a queen with two side tables. (not that I need a king-sized bed, lol) Yes, I still love the Mayan Princess and their staff and the continental breakfast! cheeses, fruits, breads, baked goods, toast your own & jams, coffee and juices, yum. The view and location are hard to beat. . . oh heck, now I’m homesick.

Hi Seashell we were in room 19. they say once you go king size you never go back and i have to agree with that one. King here is often 2 twins together. Their breakfast was very decent and I agree location is primo – loved being that close to beach and town. Homesick – maybe it is time for you to come home.

We stayed at the Mayan Princess the first time we came to town. I have to say the friendliness of the staff was amazing I would stay there just for that alone.

I love Mayan Princess. We stayed only once but will for sure stay there again if we need to be in town. Thx tacogirl for the write-up.

I do love being in town and sitting on the deck and people watching, better than any TV or book.

I didn’t know the Mayan Princess had kitchens. That’s great to know because their location is one of the best. Thanks for the great review, TG!
