At the north end of town, Blue Tang is a small inn (I believe 14 rooms) that I have walked past 1000 times. It is very cutely painted and covered in blue tiles. I have always admired this logo, sign and the t-shirts that the staff wear.
Walking past, you wouldn’t know they have this small pretty pool tucked behind the wall. Provides perfect privacy on a beach that gets a decent amount of foot traffic. They also serve a continental breakfast (included with your room) each morning poolside.
Allan, one of the managers was nice enough to show me three different type of room. All lovely. Very cute bedspreads, some with beautiful wood beamed ceilings and floors, local artwork and decorations. All in all, very homey. Here are some of my pics:
I wish this picture below was my bedroom…though the TV might be a tad awkward for family television viewing (it is positioned across from the bed).
The beach is very pretty and white at this end of town. And there are plenty of docks (like Wet Willy’s) that are great for swimming.

You are right at the edge of town…so walking everywhere is very easy. You are also next door to some good eats: Ambergris Brewing Company, Matthieu’s Deli and Red Ginger restaurant, all great spots. You can’t go wrong if you are looking for a place close to town.
Check out The Blue Tang for all rates and information. I think the prices are pretty reasonable. And, additionally, they have some specials until mid-December. Check out their website for the deets.
(And don’t worry…I wasn’t paid in any way to write this…not even a free glass of water.)
One more thing…if you are wondering what “blue tang” is, it is not a flavored powder drink mix. Blue tangs are the pretty blue fish that you will definitely see when diving or snorkeling. Think Dory in “Saving Nemo”.
Wow, what a neat review and place! We have walked by there many times, and I had no idea how cute it was inside, or that it had a roof deck, or a pool, or a cool sailboat! Thanks for sharing it with us — since we live here we wouldn’t see it otherwise.
