Belize offers so many ways to unwind during the day, from spa visits to waterside strolls, but some attractions are best experienced after the sun goes down. Though it might be hard to decide between an upbeat bar with nightly specials or something more intimate, there are a surprising amount of options, especially if you select a property where entertainment and lounges are first-rate amenities.

Hotels included in the lists below are among the best choices if you hope to dance and sip cocktails after a busy day of sightseeing. Some are known for keeping their guests entertained on the premises, while others have fewer on-site options but plenty of fun venues within walking distance.

Best Hotels in Belize for Nightlife and Entertainment

Hotels and resorts in the following table were chosen as having outstanding nightlife and entertainment, or for having some wonderful nearby entertainment venues. Beginning with our top pick, the Princess Hotel & Casino Belize City, the very best are listed at the top; the rankings were created based on a number of factors, including whether they have live shows, lounges, and other exciting amenities on-property or nearby.

Because some night owls view live performance lineups as necessity, we've listed the availability of entertainment frequency at the hotels. However, hotels in Belize are known to host entertainment more frequently during the tourist season, so be sure to call or email the property to ask about their seasonal schedules if it's important to you.
