Relaxing and enjoyable vacation
Our stay at Oceanair was quite enjoyable and lived up to out expectations. The property was as adverstised - comfortable and well appointed. Our ground floor unit was very accessable to the pool and beachside trails and we particularly enjoyed the ability to stroll/bike on the trail along the shore - which included easy walks to retaurants in close proximity. The kitchen was well equiped with all that you need to cook/dine for yourself which can be a good way to save a few bucks. The property management staff were responsive to all of our questions and requests, which also included transport to and from the water taxi on arrival and departure. Excursion operators will pick you up at the private dock which is very convenient as well. Belezian locals are very friendly and willing to help you out when you need it.
Two suggestions; It would be nice if they could provide a pass to cross the toll bridge into town; 5 bucks round trip everytime you go into town is a bit annoying (and costly) after awhile.
While the immediate grounds are kept spotless and well maintained, the shore areas close by were littered with piles of flotsum and garbage that really detract from the beauty of Belize. Seems like local property owners could chip in to keep these common areas clean.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice complements. To clarify the toll bridge fee, there is a charge for crossing to and from town for everyone traveling by cart or taxi similar to what you might expect if traveling on a U.S. byway with toll booths. Not too many years ago (before the construction of the bridge) there was a hand ferry to cross the water also charging a fee. They would board as many as would fit on a small raft and hand pull everyone across by rope. As for the refuse, you do find a build up especially along undeveloped areas around the island and there is an ongoing attempt with owners, residents and volunteers to remedy the situation. We remind ourselves this is considered a 3rd world country and they are working at resolving the additional ecological challenges with the increase in population and tourism. Regardless, as we sit on the veranda we never take for granted the stunning ocean view and pristine water and sea life.
