We arrived without a reservation and not really sure what to expect. What a gem. The grounds are wonderful, can't wait to return in daylight to explore this wonderful place, They charged a very fair corkage fee as they had no wine that we love....More

The service was great! Friendly but not pushy. Fun start with boat ride to the restaurant. The setting is beautiful. The food was good.

Food was okay. Service was a bit overblown and pricey. We had better food at Coco Cabana a mile or so closer to San Pedro. The road is terrible but navigable. The hotel looked wonderful. We won't go back next time were on Ambergris

We bikes here from costa blu. Food was ok, but not as good as other places we ate on the island. I had the fried fish and fries. It was a nice place with a good view of beach. Friendly staff.

The food experience in Belize is moderately good at best. We were in San Ignacio and then San Pedro expecting the latter to be superior. While it was slightly better, the general experience left us disappointed-that is, until we found Mambo Restaurant. From the moment...More
