Victoria House

San Pedro, Belize

Belize's biggest island, Ambergis Caye, sits just one-half mile from the Belize Coral Reef System, the second biggest reef in the world. For that reason, the isle attracts throngs of scuba aficionados who swear by its crystal-clear, western Caribbean waters. But, couples in search of romance will swoon over Victoria House, just ten minutes from San Pedro, Ambergis Caye's main town. A boutique, 42-room, hideaway, encircled by verdant gardens, the hotel has thatched-roofed casita suites and plantation-style villas.
