9.15km from Portofino RestaurantWow! I can't say enough nice things about this place! As a solo female traveler, and with it being my first time to Belize/San Pedro, I was very particular about where to stay as location and safety were important. I was a bit of a pain because of some last minute plans and they were so accommodating for me. I planned to travel here from Caye Caulker for 2 nights and ended up meeting new friends and staying an extra night in Caye Caulker instead of heading to San Pedro. It was absolutely no problem and they allowed me to check in the next day. This was my first time in a hostel setting so I opted for the private room and bathroom to acclimate a bit. The location was perfect, walkable from the water taxi terminals though golf cart rentals were plentiful nearby. Within walking distance to several great bars and restaurants like Palapa Bar, Estel's and Wahoos. Access was a little confusing as the actual rooms are behind the Sandbar lobby area but an employee pointed me to the correct location. The room was beautiful! It looked like it had some recent updates and was extremely spacious. It included a small kitchenette with a few bowls and plates, utensils, coffee cups and a coffeemaker. A tall hutch to hang clothes which also included a warm blanket which was nice since this room had phenomenal air conditioning. The bathroom was also spacious and the water pressure was awesome, as well as the temperature. There was a shared patio space with a few chairs and not much of a view of the island, but overlooked the amenities of the courtyard and small pool below. The walls were thin so you could hear your neighbors but no one was too rowdy and the shared spaces in the courtyard were nice if you wanted a change of scenery from hanging out in your room. They were doing some kind of repair nearby and a yappy dog made for a bit of morning noise but not a huge deal. I was given a bracelet which allowed for discounts at certain places which was a great and unexpected touch. I was also provided with a binder full of information for my stay. Sandbar had great drinks and a late-night menu and I got to talk to some really cool guests and the bartender was awesome. They have a dock area across a sandy path equipped with chairs and tubes to float in, which was great to hang out and watch the water. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the perfect place for my short stay in San Pedro. I will definitely be back so that I can explore more and take advantage of all of these great amenities.
