The Palapa House is in the perfect location right on the beach. We had the King suite and everything was perfect. Many great places are within walking distance. Shane emailed the check in process prior to arrival and responded very quickly to my email. It was awesome waking up each morning to a terrific view. I highly recommend The Palapa House!

We had a great stay at the property. We stayed in a unit on the 2nd floor. We were concerned about the noise from other reviews but it turned out we only had 1 night of loud music from the nearby hostel with a restaurant. Shane, the property manager, is very fast at responding to text. We had issues with the sofabed and he sent Santiago right away to fix it. The property has beautiful view of the water and is across from Chuck & Robbie Dive shop. You can walk to downtown San Pedro from the unit. However, we did have a golf cart for the whole time we were there and it was convenient. We were able to get a discount on the golf cart with MK Rental via Shane's recommendation. The unit comes with toaster, blender, microwave, hairdryer, etc. The AC were strong to the point that we had to turn it off at time because it was too strong. One thing we wished was that the bathroom had a ventilation fan. Otherwise, everything was perfect and we would stay here again.

Quiet 9 unit property on beach front. Super clean. Property manager was responsive and very helpful. Parking for golf carts in front of property. Walkable to grocery store, bars, restaurants, Wayos, and boat slips for scuba/boating excursions. 10min golf cart ride to airport. Would recommend to friends and would stay here again!

The property has an excellent location, right on the water but also in town where you can easily walk to restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries and bars. The property is well maintained and this unit (3rd floor penthouse 1 bedroom) has everything you need to prepare your own meals if you wish to do so. Communication with the property manager, Shane, was exceptional and when we had an issue with the TV, he provided assistance immediately. We would highly recommend staying here when visiting San Pedro.

The Palapa house is on the beach which i loved. Easy walking distance to many restaurants and bars but not so busy with people and traffic. Eady access to charter fishing, scuba or most any or activity you might choose. The room has full kitchen with plates, dishes, utensils, dining table, living area, tv with cable, wifi, bath towels, beach towels and bathroom supplies. I will go back to this property.

A winter stay
Shane and Santiago who are the property managers made our welcome and stay effortless. They reached out weeks ahead of our stay to ensure that all goes well and promptly responds when questions were asked. The house was very spacious and comfortable, a home away from home if you will. We stayed in the king suite and the bed was large and comfortable, the AC works really strongly and kept the suite very cold which we appreciated in the persistent heat, and the large fridge and oven came really handy for use during our 4 day stay. The room was quiet and clean. The only thing that could have improved was the shower pressure but I think the weak pressure is a common finding in most of Belize. Overall, a wonderful stay especially since it is just a few feet from the beach! Who could ask for more!
