This is a unique place I recommend very highly even though I am often more of a cabin guy than a resort/hotel type. This place can cater to hardcore scuba divers that want to explore the best reefs without spending full week on a liveaboard boat (and sacrificing fun and comfort), as well as mixed parties of scuba divers (experienced and novices), snorkelers and cocktail drinkers, with and without kids.Due to too few divers we were warned that Lighthouse Reef diving can only be arranged at private trip prices and two of us decided to spend just 4 nights at Belize Dive Haven and move to a place on Lighthouse Reef for 3 nights. While I don’t have regrets, let me just list what we missed/lost from this move, at least what mattered to me.-- A proper big transfer boat from the mainland where you are protected from the sun, rain, and splashes from the choppy seas.-- A really spacious and comfortable room with space for all our stuff.-- A/C in the room and the feeling of never being hot even though we came in mid-May. The whole territory of Dive Haven is under unobstructed sea breeze, including the outdoor dining space. In the other place I was constantly hot except when on a boat and in the shower.-- Money - we paid closer to 50% more per day of diving at that other place. Dive Haven is the most aggressively priced resort on the atoll.-- Better equipped dive shop with Nitrox compressor, bigger and more convenient diving boats, better rental equipment that included dive computers. Cardinal runs a tight operation, and D/Z/Wee/whatever-Run (that was a name everyone got differently) is a fun and expert boat captain.-- Not being eaten by most fashistic mosquitoes you even seen. Being able to walk around even at dusk. Dive Haven cleared big enough territory from the atoll jungle that mosquitoes stopped being a problem (you’d still need to use a bit of anti-mosquito spray when dining).-- Freshwater pool, while not essential for hardcore scuba divers, was really nice.Sir Hakimi, it was an honor getting to know you, and seeing the scale of the operation. I can say I respect your decisions about what to invest into and not compromise on very much. Very impressive!Andre, Fermin, feel free to use my review in your marketing materials.With many thanks -- Eugene

Our group stayed at Belize Dive Haven the second week of December, 2020. The resort itself is beautiful, clean, and has a very friendly staff. I only gave 4 stars because the week we were there, we were the only group (22 people) on the property, and many of the normal amenities were not readily available (gift shop open on request only, no one at the front desk) so I didn't get to experience the resort as normal. We were there for the diving, so that didn't matter to us. The dive crew was very knowledgeable and took us to fantastic locations! They let us dive close to, or over an hour for most dives. They had Nitrox available, and it was a reasonable price. The staff at the resort were super friendly, and after a day or two they knew everyone's first name. The food was delicious, and they were very conscientious about COVID and making sure everyone was wearing masks and using hand sanitizer. The resort is right on the beach with two beautiful pools. Be sure to carry plenty of Deet bug repellent, and some Benadryl spray/Calamine lotion - the sand fleas are awful! Other than the bites they gave several of us, everything else about our stay was perfect!

Overall we had a very good experience with Belize Dive Haven Resort. Our primary objective was to come here and dive for multiple days. The local reef/wall dives are good and the best diving (Lighthouse reef, half moon caye) is only about a 45 minute boat ride away. There is an extra fee for that trip along with additional park fees. On many of our dives we saw reef sharks, several different species of turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, dolphin. Nitrox is offered as an optional upgrade as well ($150/wk).The ResortThe resort is a work in progress, it’s probably about 80% complete. The portions of the resort you would use on a daily basis are completed adequately. Overall I found the rooms to be spacious and very clean, comfortable beds, cold AC. The dining area is a simple, large open air area with tables and a bar.Besides diving there isn’t much else to do out here. There’s a nice beach with kayaks and two big beautiful pools but other than that, options are limited. Like I stated earlier, we came to dive so that wasn’t an issue for us. It would be nice to have additional options if you wanted to bring other non-diving family members along.Right next to the resort is an airstrip, we opted to fly (Tropic Air) from BZE to the resort, a quick 15 minute flight.The StaffAll staff members were very friendly and welcoming, greeting you with a warm smile on their face. The dive guides and captains were also great. We enjoyed diving primarily with Cardinal and Max. Oscar and Ron took good care of those at the bar.The FoodFood quantity was plentiful and the quality was fair. Mostly inexpensive cuts of bone-in pork, beef or chicken along with rice, potatoes, beans, vegetables. Food was served buffet-style but because of Covid staff served you. Again, food service staff were great!COVID-19 safety protocols were followed throughout by all staff.

We spent one week at this truly amazing place.What makes this resort so special is the location, facilities and above all the staff. Team of true professionals that are ready to take care of your every wish and needs. Thank you Luis and your staff for every delicious meal you have prepared for us, thank you for fulfilling my special dietary needs. Thank you Max and Cardinal and your team for keeping my children safe while diving, memories you helped to create for Kristina and Ellie will last a life time. Thank you Zane, Naomi. Oscar, all you wonderful housekeeping ladies and ground maintenance staff, you make this amazing place even more special by your hard work and friendly and professional attitude. Thank you for making our trip unforgettable.This resort is great for both divers and non divers who enjoy tranquil setting and upscale accommodations and facilities.Rooms are bright, beautifully furnished and the beds are very, very comfortable.Swimming pool contains rain water and swimming in it a real treat. There is abundance of sun beds and outdoor furniture sets all throughout beautifully landscaped and well maintained grounds.We were impressed by the fact that the whole resort is designed and operates in environmentally friendly manner, for example there is reverse osmosis drinking water refill station in the lobby available to the guests, it provides superior tasting water and eliminates piles of plastic water bottles which is what happens in majority of hotels and resorts.

Had a great time with a group of dive and travel professionals from all over the U.S.From the moment we arrived in Belize, the staff of BDH, were very attentive to each one of us in the group. Same treatment was given when we arrived at the resort. Every staff member, went out of their way to make our stay the best possible.There were several of us in the group that had either allergies to foods or could only eat certain foods. The kitchen staff met each one of the meal needs in the group. Luis, the Food and Beverage Manager, has a great staff. From the servers to the Chefs!! Thanks again for making my special meals.Hotel Manager Gil and his staff made sure we were taken care and were attentive to all our needs while we were there.The dive staff was amazing, from the DiveMasters to the boat Captains. If you ask me, Boat Capt. Deron, DMs Cardinal and James were the BEST! If you ask the other that were on the other boat they would say that Boat Capt Terell, DM Rodney and Max (CD) were the best.Understanding that they have absolutely no control over the weather, they did everything possible to make sure we had a good time. Dives were delayed while waiting for the Tropical storm front to pass. After that, we were off to amazing dive sights. Our very last day of diving, we were treated to the most amazing dolphin show. NO, they don't have dolphins on the resort! But the ocean does!! During our last dive we had 5-8 dolphins, join us on our dive. After the dolphins noticed we were amazed they took off. It was exciting to see these amazing creatures in their natural habitat and not in some show in captivity.Cant wait to go back!!

Had the pleasure of being one of the first guests to visit this resort and it was truly magical! The diving was phenomenal and the staff worked hard to make sure we were well taken care of. When I wasn't enjoying all the ocean had to offer, I was enjoying the GIGANTIC pool!! I've never seen one like it at any resort! It is a masterful design and for someone who loves to swim, it was so nice to swim more than 200 ft and not reach the other side! Made my morning laps easy because I wasn't turning constantly! It was also a wonderful place to sit at night to enjoy the calming Caribbean breezes. If you love to dive and that is your focus, this is a place to consider!
