Ambergris Caye, like most of Belize, has a sub-tropical climate. There are two seasons in Belize- winter (Mild and relatively dry) and summer (Warm and occasionally hot and humid. The official monsoon rainy season is June through August). Summers in San Pedro Town and the other Cayes strung out along the Barrier Reef are much milder than on the Belizean mainland, due to the proximity to the Sea and the cooling effects of the easterly trade winds and cloud cover which hold temperatures in the high 20's/ low 30's.
The busier time of the year for travellers to Belize is November to May, which are the winter months of the Northern Hemisphere. Still, many visitors prefer the more quiet days of the summer months from June to October for their vacation in Belize. Both times of the year have their own unique attractions.
To start planning your holiday to Victoria House Resort & Spa
Victoria House Resort & Spa is a small exclusive plantation-style resort located on the island of Ambergris Caye off the coast of mainland Belize in Central America. It is a superb base for snorkelling, scuba diving and soaking up the Caribbean sunshine.
Victoria House Resort & Spa is nestled between picturesque white beaches and coconut groves with lush tropical gardens planted with hibiscus, bougainvillea and oleander.
The plantation rooms, casitas and private villas are stylishly furnished with cool white fabrics, handcrafted mahogany furniture and walls adorned with local art frescos. Suites feature spacious bedrooms with magnificent four-poster bamboo beds and verandas with chaise lounge and sofas offering stunning oceanic views. The pool is perfect for relaxing and overlooks the turquoise Caribbean. At night guests can enjoy delicious fresh seafood in the hotel’s Palmilla restaurant and a cocktail in the cosy palapa bar.
The hotel has its very own PADI dive centre and access to some of the world’s best diving. There is also a wealth of other activities close by including a wide range of other water sports, fishing, wildlife excursions, Mayan ruin excursions, romantic sunset cruises, cave tubing and golf. Or why not take to the skies on a helicopter tour of the local islands.
There is sea grass in front of Victoria House Resort & Spa’s shores, which makes swimming or snorkelling from the beach not really possible. We therefore recommended that guests swim off the jetty or head out by boat for an ocean dip. Sea grass is a natural occurrence and a vital element of the ecological marine world as many ocean species thrive on it to survive.
With only forty-two accommodations, Victoria House Resort & Spa is a small and exclusive Belize Resort and has retained the casual ambiance and outstanding staff that make it famous for it’s true Belizean experience. All of the Casitas, Plantation rooms, Suites and Private Villas are located in a lush tropical garden setting with tall swaying palms and sweeping views of the reef and white sand beach. Some accommodations such as the Beachfront Villas and Rainforest Suite are just steps from the azure waters of the Caribbean. The Plantation Rooms and Casitas are set slightly further back but still offer partial beach views. Their newest addition is the Infinity section of the resort containing three Luxury Villas and four Infinity Suites and an infinity pool. This section is set slightly further back from the beach and still offer beach views. In order to escape and relax, only their villas and select suites feature TVs in the room.

Victoria House is a perfect base for exploring the barrier reef - the marine life is fantastic in the area, just walking along the jetty off the beach I watched a stingray glide in the water beneath me! The rooms differ slightly in size, but are all beautifully decorated and have air-conditioning. The beach at Victoria House is spacious and offers plenty of room, there is a seawall along the edge of the beach but the water is really shallow in that area so swimming is best from the jetty.
This elegant and exclusive island retreat features a varied collection of rooms, suites, and villas. Everything is done with a refined sense of style and attention to detail. The resort is set on an expansive piece of land a couple of miles south of San Pedro, with lush tropical gardens and a surprisingly good section of soft white sand fronting it. The plantation rooms and suites are spread through several buildings, and there's a string of individual casitas aligned around a grassy lawn facing the sea. These latter feature high-pitched thatch roofs, tile floors, and wide French doors letting out on to a private balcony. The newer villas and suites are large and well equipped, with flatscreen televisions and plush furnishings. Some have kitchenettes, and others are duplex units that can be joined or rented separately. Service is attentive yet understated. A full range of tours and activities is offered, and the Palmilla restaurant here is one of the finest on the island.
