The speed boat trip from San Pedro town on Ambergris Caye along the warm Caribbean water ranks as one of the more romantic, full-sensory hotel arrivals out there.
Situated on a white sandy beach, Las Terrazas has a huge infinity pool, a fine-dining restaurant, and a spa and wellness center. And there are only 37 luxury apartments, with one to three bedrooms each. The two-story oceanfront residence, opening straight onto the beach, is particularly impressive, as is the oceanview penthouse suite, complete with private plunge pool.
But even the standard apartments offer plenty of room, and more amenities than you’d ever need for a relaxed island vacation – including a fully equipped kitchen, a separate dining room, and two large bathrooms.
There is a PADI-certified dive shop on site, and complimentary scuba lessons in the pool. There’s also kayaks and Hobie Cats; for something chilled, there are lovely white-cushioned chaise lounges waiting on every terrace and piece of sand.
NB: Las Terrazas closes seasonally from September 15 through October 4.
