New French Restaurant in San Pedro

Last night a french restaurant opened opposite the Spindrift hotel and where the old First Caribbean Bank was situated. It is very small but well air conditioned,and seriously expensively decorated. The food is interesting and was surprisingly good although the potato thing was a little bland-just needs a little jazzing up. The wine by the bottle a little high but not too bad.

What is with french people are they coming like the chinese to takeover the island,as there is the new French Bakey in the Sancas building (pop Tropic Air) which provides the best bread in Belize-the baguettes are a connoisseurs delight.

Jager,Jambo,and Splat’s Weather Report for San Pedro Belize

Last night was a shocker we all stayed under the boss’s bed as there was lightening thunder and we expected a serious amount of rain. It went on for hours but virtually no rain.

Today looks a lot better as we already have blue skies and a pretty constant breeze which will make a great day for tanning.

Sewage at Mahogany Bay on San Pedro

An interesting point was brought up by an ex-salesman for Mahogany Bay-this person worked for this organization for over a year and,needless to say,did not have a work permit. His argument on not getting one was that the management promised him that they were dealing with it-when he resigned he was not paid his final payment as he was told that he had been working illegally- the AD says go figure that logic.

The size of Mahogany Bay means that there should be a major sewage outlet and pumps to send the effluence to the road (where the main sewage pipe for the town is). While the AD is not an expert on this it seems that there is something sorely missing in the design of this resort-maybe they are just transferring the crap  directly to the sewage ponds which are nearer to the resort than the road. The AD wonders what aromatic smell surrounds the resort when the wind blows in the wrong direction.

Zip Lining @ Caribbean Villas Hotel

The zip line jus finally open at CVH -although small at a 120 feet it is great fun and costs little tho use it,along with the water park and water slide -it is open for everyone but children must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

Pictures will be published on monday when the author figures out how to print them.

Spat,Jager and Jambo’s Weather Report for San Pedro june 3 2017

The wether is really strange as yet again it is overcast but my guess is it will improve as the day progresses. The boss is going on holiday and those stupid dogs think that they are going with him. They do not realize that I am going to hide in the suitcase and he will be delighted to see me when he reaches New Zealand which is a country ac couple of hours from here -I think.

 

Seagrape Drive, Road Improved by Residents

Seagrape Drive a road running to the east of Coconut Drive which has been in a sad state of repair for many years has finally been upgraded to a reasonable surface. Also all tributary roads leading from Coconut drive to Seagrape.

This project was undertaken by some of the businesses (not all) situated on the road. The businesses to be thanked although not all are “C’s” woodwork shop,Roger and Fran,Tropic Air,the Shabat family,FC’s aluminum,Harmouch,and Pedro’s Inn. Others have contributed but are unknown to the AD. Hopefully the GOB will now spend the money to keep the road in a decent state of repair. The Town Board provided the machinery and the workers who repaired the road{s).

The AD congratulates all the civic minded residents,and Town Board who helped to make this project happen.

Ambergris Daily is now taking Comments

The AD now has an email address and also welcoming readers viewpoints in the comment section.

When Is a Hotel ON a Beach and NOT on a Beach (Mahogany Bay)

We should have a prize for this one -it is obvious to our eagle eyed readers Mahogany Bay. They have purchased a lot further south on the lagoon and are calling it their beach club. It appears that one can only get there by boat which means that many or one person could be stuck there especially if the boat breaks down (please check with all boat owners on the reliability of said vehicles).

The way to this beach resort ┬álot which has nothing on except mangroves (we wonder at the AD how long they will last) is to travel ,on a boat that has yet to be purchased,west and south on the lime green colored canals(this color is often seen in the Simpsons, emitting from Mr. Burn’s nuclear power plant),sail past the old dump which is still a haven for mosquitos and then to an unfilled swampy lot which is still on the lagoon side. Perhaps pictures of Victoria House should yet again be utilized as they look spectacular and a place that everyone would want to visit.

The AD has yet to meet anyone who has actually purchased at Mahogany Bay and would love to hear from purchasers who have received their land titles from the GOB. Their views will be enlightening as we are sure at the AD they must be somewhat confused as how their money has been spent. Also how much they think their investment is now worth-also how much they think their wooden cabins cost to build.All answers to ambergrisdaily12@gmail.com

The AD cannot understand how anyone can think or believe that a room near a sewage treatment plant can get around 400usd a night when not on a beach and only has one large communal pool which can be a long hot walk from some of the rooms. It would also be interesting to see if a staff member would actually swim in one of the canals,and if indeed their insurance company would allow this to happen (if the staff and guests are insured).
