The footballer hangs out in the gym, (no pun intended), and a few of Alex’s paintings may be seen as you head into the Caracol and Altun Ha rooms for a meeting or a social gathering.

Yes, we have nice rooms and great views, and our food is among the best in the country, but we are also very proud of our collection of paintings. We invite you to slow down and take a look at the artistry rendered by Belizean painters in this collection. They are colorful, historical pieces that tell the Belizean story; take time to stop and stare. We don’t mind if you do.
