Historical Traveller Reviews of Captain Morgan's Retreat Hotel
This paradise is not for everyonefrom Treesah
I was in heaven but my significant other got very bored! Nothing to do after he finished his book. I walked to San Pedro twice (3.5 miles each way). A great exercise. Capt Morgan's is for people who know how to relax. Workaholics who bring their cell phones on their vacation won't be too happy here.
Great place to hang outfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The food at the restaurant was good. The service isn't the fastest, but hey it's island time and as the Bartender Charles says, "you’re on vacation man". The staff was extremely helpful in setting up excursions to other parts of the country. We did the zip lining and cave tubing which was awesome.
I surprised my wife with a wedding vow renewal ceremony on the beach. The staff at the resort kept it a secret and was great in helping me make the plans. Thanks again Blanca!
Taking the water taxi is fun especially at night when the stars are out. I highly recommend checking out some of the local restaurants nearby. Especially Capricorn and Mambo's at Mata Chica. The Mambo restaurant at Mata Chica could be one of the coolest restaurants we have ever been to. Great atmosphere, great food, and the music make the ambiance. You over look the ocean, and the Manager, Crizzle makes you feel like you’re a friend in his own house.
Yes there were mosquitos, but that's to be expected during June in the tropics. We brought bug spray and were fine. The timeshare salesman stopped and said hello once. We told him we don't want a tour or anything, and they left us alone the whole trip. Thanks guys.
So to sum up, I recommend Captain Morgan's for a great time, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. We look forward to coming back again for some more Rum Punch and Dirty Banana cocktails!

Great Place to Relax but forget the A/Cfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Overall we had a fantastic time here, and if A/C is not a priority I would have to highly recommend this place.
accomodations and eatsfrom LUBO
The activities crew at CM was outstanding--many thanks to Lewis and Malcolm. They had several trips to offer and arranged a custom trip to that was reasonably priced and spectacular! (tuff e nuff tours--they were great!) Snorkling, cave tubing and ruins are a must on your trip to Belize!
For the most part the food service at CM was very good. We were occassionally waiting for a breakfast buffet that was very so so(the breakfast menu is much better than buffett!). However, the wait was not long and hot coffee was always available while we waited. Otherwise the food was convenient and good and the servers a little shy but once you get them talking they are very friendly. Service at the bar was excellent--especially David and Art. We really enjoyed the cold Chardonney, Dirty Bananas and Belikin. (don't drink the red wine--they store it at outdoor bar and the temp ruins the flavor) We would have liked to enjoy the CM swim up bar more but construction is underway and that's just progress...
The only negative experience we had was that front desk staff person seemed to care less that we were there but we rarely needed his services so it didn't matter.
Captain Morgans is north of town--a bit out of the way but boat service by the resort was usually going to town when we wanted to go so it was not big deal for us. Next door to CM is Capricorns restaurant--definitely the best meal we had on the trip. You'll want to make reservations and go for dinner. The food and entertainment were wonderful at this beach front lantern lite restaurant. In the other direction, you'll find Pauly's Pizza--a great lunch and further down is Belizean Shores where you should go to watch the sunset at the Laguna Grill while snacking on appetizers and sipping drinks. Leo at the swim up bar (at Belizean Shores) is exceptional and a lazy afternoon there with him is a must.
Good food in San Pedro--Caliente (homemade stuffed jalapenos and margaritas), Cafe Picasso, Elvi's for rice and beans.
We ran out of time and did not get to try many of the restaurants and such that we planned. We'll be back!!

located in the US, to this date we have booked approximently 75-100 of the Vacation Award Certificates given out to the people that have toured our property. November 2005 is sold out for the alloted rooms given for the certificates. We are currently taking reservations for June-November 2006
for the free weeks. We do not feel that we are "scamming" anybody, and always try to accomodate you on one of the three sets of dates provided.
Again, Wisconsin, who posted this comment your reservation will be accepted for Nov 2006 or any dates still available in 2005. Please contact our US

Simply Awfulfrom A TripAdvisor Member
kind of a dumpfrom A TripAdvisor Member
little town. Wedding outfits were custom made by Bonita Island Fashions, We wanted a tropical looking wedding since we were in the tropics. Back to the resort for Belizian Night, with music and wonderful food. The staff could not have been more friendly, good food, wonderful tropical atmosphere, and a new liking for rum punch, and the dirty banana. The next day we snorkeled Shark and Ray Alley, where our diver Dillson was hugging and wresteling sharks and StingRays. What an Experience! We were planning to take another Snorkel after the wedding. The next two days flew by as we talked to Blanca our wedding planner, as we got ready to be wed. On the morning of our wedding, the weather was perfect, blue skys, tropical multi layed blue waters and bright sunshine prepared us for our specail day. That morning I located the gardner and asked for his clippers, for I was going to arrange the most beautiful tropical flowers for my maid of honor, a little island flower girl and myself. The wedding was at 4:00, It was perfect.
We had rum punch, appitizers, and key lime pie as our wedding cake.
The staff at Captian Morgans could not have done enough for us. Ernie, Karen, Malli, Joe the waiter, all the Louis's, Felix, Dillson and a whole host of other could have not done anything else to make it a perfect visit and wedding and honeymoon. They even arranged a specail wedding night dinner for myself and my new husband Robert under candle lit palapa, surrounded by candles cand a special meal and a wonderul waiter Joe who we will never forget. It was hard to leave our new family, we have become so close. We exchanged e-mails with other guest and staff and plan on returning sometime later this year. We loved everything about Captian Morgans, the food, the golfcarts we took to San Pedro, the water the people and especially our new friends, who hopefully we will meet again one day.
Top Local Tips for San Pedro
Tour guides Go with Tanisha Tours, Daniel Nunez. He is definitely the best.
Ice Cream Don't eat
San Pedro is awful for late night dining If you want to eat make sure you get to your restaurant by 9:00 PM. Everything closes for food by 10:00 PM except for The Park where street vendors cook up everything from steak to chicken on dirty grills with no refrigeration. I had some serious stomach issues after dining late night at the Park.
