Hol Chan Reef Resort & Villas -best Location And Newest Resort On Ambergris Caye

Hol Chan Reef Resort & Villas is the only resort on south ambergris caye that offers an elevator and dual rooftop decks that will wow you with unobstructed 360 degree views of the southern part of the island. The proximity to one of belize’s premier tour destinations – hol chan and shark ray alley – means you don’t have to go far for some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the country.

A short 20 minute drive into the heart of san pedro town ensures that, when you desire some activity, it is never far away. Being close enough and accessible to restaurants, bars and shops allows you to indulge whenever you want to yet far enough away from the noise and bustle to enjoy the pure tranquility of the ocean.

Our new condominium villas are the pinnacle of luxury with 2400 sf of living space with 3 bedroom/3 bathroom suites perfect for relaxing with family and friends and absolutely breathtaking views. The villas come complete with panoramic eight foot folding doors to beach front balconies, ocean front & lagoon sunset views, granite countertops with mahogany cabinets, air conditioning, satellite tv and complimentary internet, stainless steel appliances & washer/dryer, and fully equipped kitchens with everything you need to prepare a dinner of belizean delicacies.

The resort amenities include 2 spectacular pools, 2 rooftop desks with built in barbecue, tropical landscaping, complimentary use of kayaks, paddle boards, bicycles and snorkeling equipment, 300 foot pier with palapa for swimming, pick up spot for charters, fishing, or just relaxing on the hammock while soaking in the sun and caribbean gentle breezes. You can’t get any closer to a front row view of hol chan marine reserve and all the wonders that the blue waters of the belize caribbean reef bring to your vacation experience.

Our personal concierge services are with you every step of the way to make your stay truly special. Our belief is personal attention doesn’t begin when you come to our resort. It begins when you are considering resort options and need someone who can help with information, questions and experiences. Our concierge services include:

Message from the Managers

Relax and Unwind!

Two simple words and two extremely difficult things to do from my days as a senior level executive in the high powered and fast paced world of high technology. Perhaps some can identify with the 12+ hour days, constant demands on time, curse of mobile devices with unrelenting emails and phone and little time for family and self.

My 1st trip to Ambergris Caye began with me checking work emails while fuming in the customs line as once again I picked the slowest and most painful line while others happily went on their vacation way. Perhaps a tad wound tight and not exactly vacation ready.

I finally did wind down the day my wife Sue and I found Hol Chan Reef Resort & Villas.

Belize is still the best keep secret with the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world with the Island of Ambergris Caye right off the best marine reserve (Hol Chan Marine) and access to the absolute best fishing, sailing, snorkeling and scuba diving anywhere in the world.

Hol Chan Reef Resort & Villas, named after Hol Chan Marine Reserve is the closest ocean resort to the action. I am one that values luxury but with a great deal. I also insist on beachfront and like new. Hol Chan brings everything (newest villas on south end of island) with really high end luxury condos and the best price/performance resort in the market. One more thing. I love being able to go to my condo or the roof top deck and to do it with ease. Don’t like stairs. So Greg put an elevator into the complex which is the only resort on the south end of the island with an elevator. Way cool especially when lugging the kids, groceries, beer and tired from a long day at the beach and ocean. I call it our ‘ELEVATOR to PARADISE”.

Sue and I have not only been guests of Hol Chan Reef Resort & Villas…We are now the owners and would love to have you come see us.

Where’s the sun? Where’s the coffee on the pier at sunrise? Where’s the warmth and friendliness of the island people? They’re all in Belize and we are back in the Midwest thawing out from winter! We just got back from a wonderful week on Ambergris Caye Island at the Hol Chan Resort. We had the time of our lives! Many thanks to Joel and Sue, our host and hostess at the resort, for all they did to make our stay stress-free and a true escape to paradise! They made fabulous recommendations for places to eat (Estel’s on the beach for breakfast is a must, as well as the Jamaican jerk BBQ chicken place – they will know the name!), where to shop (they introduced us to Carvin’ Marvin, a local who hand-carves bowls and figures from ziricote wood that are beautiful and some of the best bargains on the island!), and not only suggested but handled all the details for several amazing excursions that made this not only a vacation but an adventure of a lifetime! We snorkeled, swam with nurse sharks, dove for conch shells, ate lunch on a private island, toured Mayan ruins and hand-fed a spider monkey! So many amazing memories to take home with us! But best of all was the time spent relaxing at the Hol Chan resort with Joel and Sue. There is not a long beach to walk down but the phenomenal pier more than made up for it. From it you have a beautiful view of BOTH the sunrise and the sunset since the resort is one of the southernmost on the island! Every morning began with a cup of coffee and a sunrise! My husband, John, loved being able to fish from the pier any time day or night! He caught barracuda, puffer fish and snapper. Joel provided the pole and enjoyed watching him catch fish! The resort also has three pools and provides kayaks and paddleboards which were a lot of fun. The view from our condo was amazing! We definitely plan to visit again!!!
