The weather is fantastic today. Splat is already sunbathing by the pool. Jambo has been for his morning swim following in the steps of his uncle who now lives in California and only can dream of the years that he spent on the beach in Belize.
Caribbean Villas Hotel, located just outside San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye has announced plans to hold a Pride Week vacation package for the LGBT community.

This event has stirred some controversy with some American quasi religions in the mainland who disagree with the legitimacy of the event.
Peter Lawrence, Managing Partner of Caribbean Villas recently spoke with Love FM about the event.

Rumours emanating from Belize City that Sandy Point Resort owners have brought in 4 specialized accountants to figure out where all the money is. Rumours abound that the Atlantic Bank is owed 12 Million Dollars. The owners from of the land that the Venezia project is being built on have not been paid. Remax sold sixth floor which of course is illegal in San Pedro. This floor was sold out and is rumoured that the clients are yet to receive their money back.The project has been changed, but no one is quite sure to what. With 90% of it being sold out, and it being 30 months behind the completion date, one has to worry.
Ambergris Daily wonders with all this money owing who has guaranteed the banks for the money owing to the banks, the pastor, the owners. Surely it can be the owners of Belizean shores, Belizean Coves, Coco Beach, Coral Beach, Ix-Tan Ha, and Costa Blue.
A prominent real estate company will not accept listings from sandy point resorts with out there being a guarantee from the bank that the apartment being listed is free and clear and that the Atlantic Bank will not take it as part of their debt.
The Venezia project still needs millions to be spent on it and it appears that all the money collected has already been spent. So, who is going to foot the bill and questions have to be answered now. We see that the managing director of Sandy Points resigned last week and has no responsibility. The owner is not in charge of monies. So who does one ask, the gardener? Surely someone is in charge.
Please see attached letter. This is for 5 million
Last night Caribbean Villas Hotel had the first ever July 4th party. There were games all throughout the day for young and old children. The Hot Dogs were amazing and all the food was superb. it was hugely successful in the number of people who were on the beach and the beach bars and it culminated with a firework display that started just after 9pm which in our opinion is a far better time to let off fireworks than the usual 12am.
According to the owners this is going to be an annual event and the owners would also like to thank the people who drank copious amounts of liquor to defray the cost of fireworks.
Does anyone find it ironic that 3 of the 4 partners for CVH are British.
Tonight is the weekly Trivia Quiz at Pedro’s Inn. Teams of up to 5 people, $5 BZ per person to enter and the winner takes the pot. Come down and join the fun.
Yesterday at about 4:25 pm, a young, dark skinned, skinny man just under 6 feet tall and weighing about 140 lbs decided that it would be a good idea to rob the workers’ wages from Caribbean Villas. He produced what is suspected to be a firearm, and the 2 people working at the front desk handed over the lock box of petty cash and the workers wages, as they are instructed to do so by the owners.
The police were called while guest relations person chased the robber. Unfortunately the robber got away, however he also stole the i-phones from the front desk staff. The police arrived within 10 minutes of the call and put a trace on the phones. Within the hour, a person was arrested with the 2 telephones but not the money. One has to say that the Police Response was magnificent, which is very rarely heard of. Fortunately no one was hurt during this incident and at no stage was any guest aware that a robbery had taken place.
For any potential robbers please note that all salaries will now be paid by cheque.
