10th of September

aguada-september (3)aguada-september (1) Belize celebrated the 216 Battle of St. George’s Caye Day on the 10th of September. Keeping in line with the theme of the battle, the Aguada staff decided to jump on board and have a little fun during the annual San Ignacio/Santa Elena parade and also the Zone 10 Neighborhood Watch parade.

Some of the staff along with their children worked hard on a Pirate theme depicting the Pirates of Spain that came to fight against our Baymen for the territory which we know now as Belize.

aguada-september (2)The float was well received by the community and they were able to enjoy the many treats and school supplies that we shared with the kids along the parade route.

Another Aguada venture of giving back to our community. Hip Hip Hooray!!

Pampered, Wined & Dined!

The Aguada Hotel has truly been blessed with a wonderful, dedicated and supportive staff!! We are so thankful for each of them and in gratitude of their year of service to The Aguada, the Butcher family treated the staff to a weekend in the Riveria Maya, Mexico. Fourteen members of the staff headed to Playa del Carmen, Mexico to be pampered, wined and dined in the same manner they serve their guests who visit The Aguada throughout the year. It was a fun filled 3 days with many memories that we know will last a lifetime!!

New Pool at The Aguada!

The Aguada PoolThe pool at The Aguada Hotel has always been a hit with guests! After 16 years of the pool servicing guests, we decided it was time to give it a facelift! We took on the task to uplift to the pool, tiling the entire area and installing a salt generating chlorine system. The first level of the pool was expanded to provide more room for those with youngsters and non-swimmers.

Book the Aguada today and tell us if you like the upgrade! =)

Baby Madelyn – The Aguada Baby!

Baby Madelyn arrives…at the hospital?… no at The AGUADA!!

First time mothers usually take great care and precautions when having their first child. This held true for Jalima Gold of Placencia, Belize. Her cramps told her it was almost time so she traveled (Wednesday, October 24) the long distance from Southern Belize to have her first born at a private hospital—La Loma Luz—in the Cayo District, Belize.

They chose to stay at The Aguada Hotel in Santa Elena Town to be close to the hospital, which is a mere 6 blocks from The Aguada. With husband, grandmother and midwife in tow, they visited the hospital only to be told that the baby wasn’t ready to make its GRAND debut—oh no, she wanted to be different from the moment she entered the world!

Early this morning (October 26), the cramps started again; but this time, they were stronger and harder. Preparing to leave The Aguada to go to the hospital, Jalima realized she couldn’t even sit—the baby was already on its way! After ONLY 11 minutes of labour, Madelyn Georgiana Gold Leslie entered the world at 1:30 am and is such a beautiful little one!

We are happy to report that both mother and baby are doing great. Midwife, Gail Johnson (CPM, LM, Midwife Without Borders) was happy to share with us that Baby Madelyn weighed in at 7 lbs, 6 ozs and is 20 inches long.

We are showered with many blessings at The Aguada Hotel… but this certainly is one of GREATEST!
