The Great House is located in the renowned Fort George area and is just 100 meters from the Caribbean Sea. This Belizean landmark was built in 1927 by talented local craftsmen and still retains its beauty, grace and charm. Now, this magnificent four-story colonial style residence is probably the largest classic wooden home still in existence in Belize. Originally built as a family home, this wonderful structure still provides the warmth and comfort reminiscent of the early colonial times of Belize. Spacious verandahs in front of the house allows you to relax and let go amidst the soothing embrace of the Caribbean breezes.
Spacious rooms feature private baths, remote control cable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fans, hair dryers, mini refrigerators, coffee makers, direct dial telephones, dedicated fax lines and in-room safety deposit boxes.
Enjoy dining or just sipping a cocktail at the Smokey Mermaid, a cool Caribbean courtyard setting located in the lower garden of The Great House. International cuisine mixes the flavors of both Central American and Caribbean neighbors. Watch as the accredited chef prepares your meal on the famous 1800 century bricked grill. Lush tropical fruit bearing trees and plants accentuates this outdoor atmosphere.
On the ground floor of The Great House you’ll discover a potpourri of products and services that you would expect to find in much larger hotels.
