Good day fellow explorers

Arriving in San Pedro mid July with the better half (wife) and 2 young kids.
As it's low season we were wondering if it would be cheaper to NOT book hotels / accommodation in advance ?

I've travelled backpacking style a lot, we'd arrive at a destination and find a decent cheap place once there.

What's the best approach with Belize?

Many thanks !!

I have done similar but always booked somewhere the first night, as usually arrived late

The last Express Water Taxi from the city to Ambergris is 5 30 pm. You should be able to find a room easily enough but the savings probably won't be significant for an island hotel.

I wouldn't be able to comment about the 'resorts'.

Because you reference "backpacking style" and "decent cheap place", I suggest the Global Village, probably the nearest hotel to the airport at Ladyville. Probably still $55/night. Good basic accommodation and restaurant across the street.
