Resort Day Pass: Enjoying the Gorgeous Pool and Beach at Las Terrazas Resort
Earlier this week, I headed to Las Terrazas Resort, 3.5 miles north, Ambergris Caye, to take advantage of their newly announced Resort Day Pass. For what I think is a very reasonable price, you have access to a wide array of beautiful lounging locales and cool activities.
I often get asked: “Do any resorts offer day passes to use the pool?” and “Who has a great beach on Ambergris Caye?” Las Terrazas Resort definitely fits the bill. Let me give you the details for the Resort Day Pass and then get to my photos!
It is suggested that you call ahead. Just to make sure there are spots available/that there is no special event at the resort that day.
I did. And checked in at the front desk. I was given a neon-orange day bracelet, and a fluffy towel before I walked around for a bit…to plan my day.
They have made a few changes to the beach over the last year and it looks AMAZING. Las Terrazas made the big investment in a Surf Rake last May (I stopped by to check in out May 2023) and this is my first time back to admire the results. The rocky seawall is gone…
I LOVE laying on the beach – with the breeze and the sounds of the water. And so great to see kids making sand castles.
The machine at rest – it’s the only one on the island.
But first…the gorgeous, tres chic pool.
The wait staff is super attentive – if you need a drink or food by the pool. I thought I’d have lunch in the restaurant – just because it looks so appealing. And the windows looking over the pool were thrown wide open on this perfect Belize day.
The chicken quesadilla was simple and delicious. (Prices are in BZD)
After lunch, I found a shady spot on the sand…enjoyed the breeze and dozed for a few minutes (I think…)
I wanted to try the “glass” or clear kayaks. I’m not going to lie…I wasn’t expecting much. But then clearly I’d forgotten how CRYSTAL CLEAR can be…
I had talked my old friend Jahfeth (who has been with Las Terrazas now for 5+ years) into coming with me. I was stunned to hear that he has been working for 5 years, I was stunned to hear that he is 25 years old now and has his own family…I think I first met him about 15 years ago!
Getting old is not easy 😉
The boat affords a crazy cool view in the water. We saw conch shells, plenty of seagrass and patch coral as we got closer (but not too close!) to the reef.
Very very cool. And the view as we coasted back. I caught up with Jahfeth and we came to the same conclusion. We are crazy lucky to live on this island – with this water and this incredible reef.
I found a spot in the shady, on the beach, and just soaked it in. It’s very easy to take where you live for granted – even here on Ambergris Caye – but sigh…
A day like this set me straight. Perfect weather, super friendly staff, plenty of staff, cold drinks, and a rare trip (for me!) out on the water. I felt like I was on vacation. And spent over 5 hours at the resort instead of my pre-planned 2 or 3. A fantastic day.
Thank you for the invite Las Terrazas – I had a really good day. And readers, please know that as always, my opinions are mine all mine.
