Belize Private Island Policies

Below is a list of our island policies.


Tipping is at your discretion and always appreciated but never expected. All tips are entirely distributed among the employees with no portion retained by the resort. If your service is exemplary, you may tip as you would at home. Guests can leave tips for staff at the end of their stay when paying their bill by cash or credit card.

Electricity on the Island

Electricity is standard U.S. 110 volt, 60 cycle AC from our inverters charged by our solar array and backup generators. We want you to be comfortable, but encourage energy conservation as well.

Water on the Island

Our water is excellent; produced by our three reverse osmosis desalinization plants. Rain water is harvested and hot water in each cabana is provided by a solar heater.

Medical Conditions

Please notify us of any existing medical conditions which might require attention. We maintain first aid packs on the island in addition to first aid kits in every boat. Placencia Village has a General Practitioner clinic and Belize City has a tertiary care hospital and trauma facility.
