We stayed here for our 10 year anniversary with four other families. This is such an easy place to stay with kids. They can all run around and play yard games on the beach and the shallow pool is great if you have little ones, while the bigger kids can play in the deeper pool. The service is great and the staff are very friendly and accomodating. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Banyan suites for 11 days. Unit G3 great unit. Very well decorated our front door opened to the beach!. The bar and the restaurant is very well managed and the food and service is very good. The front staff are very accommodating and they did everything in their power to make our stay memorable.
As for the dive operation located at 5he Banyan pier, we did not dive with them. Unfortunately the staff was not very friendly nor accommodating. We ended up at Ramon’s Village for the diving. The diving operation is not related to the Banyan suites thus not taking points out to the Banyan suites for the shortcoming of the diving center.

Room Tip: G3 was a very nice room. Can’t comment on other rooms.

My daughter and I spent 10 days at Banyan Bay with a poolside view. We loved this resort and are so glad we chose it. Iguana watching was entertaining, once we became accustomed to their company poolside! Drinks and lunch delivered poolside was always appreciated!
The high light of our trip were the people we met and at Banyan Bay this included:
Lecia (I hope I spelled her name correctly) was often our server at the on sight restaurant Pier 366. She was so fun and helpful. We felt welcomed and special whenever we saw her and gave her a hug goodbye on our last night.
Elias at the on sight bar: Elias is a wealth of information and it’s obvious he loves his job and country. He shared some Belizean history and discussed many topics of interests as well as giving us advise on how to best spend our time.
Jesse at the reception desk. I don’t know how many hours a week that Jesse works, but it seems she was always there! Very friendly and knowledgeable and comfortable giving advise. We really enjoyed every opportunity to interact with her.
Banyan Bay provided an awesome experience and one to be remembered.

This was our first time in Belize and really enjoyed Ambergris Caye. Jessie & Miriam, part of Banyan Bay staff, were friendly and helpful! And Jackie was amazing!! Upon our arrival she helped us locate our missing luggage, and offered suggestions on activities and restaurants. Jackie genuinely treated us like longtime friends!
We stayed in unit G3, a 2 bed/2 bath oceanfront with the pool to the side. Yadira did a great job of keeping our condo very clean! The grounds keepers also worked hard to keep everything looking neat. Unfortunately, it was a losing battle with the stinky sea grass, but they cleared it from morning to night. Just don't plan on swimming in the surf. The pool was nice, but I'd recommend adding frequent cold water more often to help make it feel refreshing.
Pier 366 restaurant was fantastic! The food was perfectly prepared, especially when the chef cooked the mahi mahi that we caught on our deep sea fishing trip! And the wait staff was extremely attentive, remembering our names on our return visits. Everyone at this complex made us feel very welcome!
Banyan Bay Suites is far enough away from town to be peaceful, yet a short golf cart ride to everything. It was also nice having the security staff around the grounds at all times.
Banyan Bay is a great value with a personalized touch!! We would stay here again and recommend it to everyone!! Thanks for making our 36th wedding anniversary a wonderful experience!!!

Wife and I along with our 18 and 19 year spent 4 days here and overall had a really good experience. All of the staff were great and the location is really convenient both for the number of places within walking distance as well as having Belize Pro Dive onsite (separate 5 star review for them last year and was just as good this year). The reason for the 4 star for Banyan is our unit was one of the renovated ones, but the kitchen appliances and lack of typical supplies (sufficient plates, silverware, etc) were lacking. To be more specific, the appliances have not been updated and show their age through a toaster who only had one side working, a microwave that cooked things in 1/3 of the time that a newer microwave, very few utensils and no dishwasher.

You should also note that they do not have a washer/dryer in the rooms or onsite. They do not advertise this but I think it's important for people to know especially if you will be there for awhile.

This being said, the staff, location and overall property are a great value and we will definitely stay there again.
