My husband passed away in Jaguar Reef because they dont have a doctor or a nurse in the premises.
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We went there for 5 nights, march 5th to 10th, because my husband wanted to see the ruins. They have 4 different buildings and we stayed in villa Margarita. The room didn't have a phone so everytime we had a problem we had to walk 5 minutes to the front desk. On march 10th we went to the reception to get the shuttle to airport. My husband suddenly started feeling sick, he couldn't breathe. I started screaming for help. Some driver, a waiter and a woman tried to give him CPR. They didn't know what they were doing. I was screaming for the ambulance someone told me that the ambulance was coming from Dangriga hospital which was half an hour away. 4 or 5 people put him to a regular van and we drove for 15 minutes to a police station. 5 minutes later the ambulance came and we drove another 15 minutes to the hospital. By that time my husband was dead. Jaguar Reef knowing that the hospital is so far away dint have a doctor or a nurse in the premises. They were nice to me after. Gave me a room for 2 nights until my daughter came from Canada to help me. We were stuck in Belize city for 3 days for all the legalities. I still cannot believe how he died helpless and I am devastated. Please think twice before you go to this place.

Vacation

We spent 3 nights here and it was amazing.

From pool outside the door overlooking the ocean. The friendly staff! Good food in restaurant, the tour booking team made the evening river and lagoon(lights up) awesome. They said you won’t regret the trip with Udell and for sure we did not

Also special thanks to Captain Dennis and Larry for our sailing on the hobie craft. Amazing to ride waves for couple hours with awesome people

Thanks for the memories 💪🏼👌👍

Perfect Getaway
Reviewed 2 months ago

This Villa was absolutely perfect for me and my wife. . Very clean and maintained just like a very nice hotel in the States. We had a tv in the bedroom and living room, an ocean view, WiFi, ceiling fan and Cooling Unit. It had its on personal pool and hot tub that was right on the beach. We were also allowed to get into the pool bar that was right next to us and any others that were on Jaguar reef. Very Close walk to the resort's dinning, bar, pool bar, pier, or any of the accommodations that came with the resort. Shakira was with Guest Services and was absolutely amazing. She helped my wife and I have a dinner on the beach at night to celebrate our Honeymoon. Remembered her Birthday and help me come up with a nice day/evening. Always warm and helpful just like all the other staff. The pool bartender Charlie was absolutely the best as well. Made amazing drinks, helped us out tremendously, had great conversations and many good suggestions for us. This place was very relaxing, fun, and had so many things to do! Definitely worth every penny!

Wonderful Accomodation
Reviewed 2 months ago

We stayed in a one bedroom suite with ocean view. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. Spacious apartment with large bathroom. Quiet location and private swimming pool. My only complaint is the lack of curtains in the living room. Guests using the sofa bed in the living room cannot sleep in because of the bright daylight.

Amazing Christmas Vacation!!
Reviewed 3 months ago

Our family Christmas vacation to the Jaguar Reef Resort was spectacular. It's a bit of a schlep to get there if you choose to drive from Belize City, but so worth it! (We did decided to fly back from Dangriga.)

The facilities were lovely, but what really made the place stand apart were the staff.

Stacy was our waitress most days and she was fabulous!
Noelle and Luis ran the adventure center/activity desk and were a wealth of knowledge.
Patrick helped us into our room and made sure that we had everything we needed the whole time we were there.
Larry and Dennis were there most enthusiastic, warm and friendly staff of all time. Upon request, Larry would bring out his machete and Dennis would climb a coconut tree, toss a few down to Larry, who would promptly slice off the top for you.

Would highly recommend the full day snorkeling excursion. We enjoyed the cave tubing at St. Herman's. It's also great to just spend time at the resort with the clear water, hammocks, pool bar, stand up paddleboards and kayaks.
