Came to Belize a day early to make sure we got there to catch boat to Isla Marisol on Saturday. Isla Marisol made reservation for us here. Staff was very friendly, room was clean with good AC which we needed. Great location near airport but noise was not a problem. There is the Chinese Store within a few minute walk... More

We spent 2 days in the hotel. It is located directly on sandy beach under the palm trees and in some distance to Dangriga. If you have a room with an ocean view, you will wake up because of the sound of the waves and the wind and enjoy the sunrise every morning! The ocean view rooms are ok, somehow... More

We stayed here for two separate nights, bookending our trip to the sister Pelican Beach resort at South Water Caye. Accommodations were clean and comfortable. Food was very good. Staff was capable and reasonably responsive. However, the staff was not very friendly, especially in the restaurant.

I just got back from here and had a fantastic time. I stayed here for 5 nights with a group from my University and it could not have been more perfect! Let's start with the bad first, my AC broke the last night unfortunately and the shower was only warm for about a minute each time.The beach is not exactly... More

We spent a total of five nights at Pelican Beach. Four nights were in room 19 in the back/new building, one night in room 10 in the front/original building. The location, at the North end of town and on the waterfront, can't be beat. We enjoyed walking along the water and out onto the pier. The staff at Pelican Beach... More

We unfortunately were only able to stay one night at the Pelican but we enjoyed great food, a lovely breeze and a wonderful beach view. We were able to watch the sunrise from our balcony and after a great breakfast we relaxed on the pier. In Dangriga we visited Marie Sharp's hot sauce factory and the Garifuna museum and really...

Pelican Beach Resort was the only place to stay in Dangriga. It is a lovely basic but clean and comfortable resort next to the ocean. The room views are great and the restaurant is right on the beach. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is on the edge of town near the airport. It is an easy 10... More

We stayed here for a night before heading over to their South Water Caye location. The property is very well-maintained and lots of birds can be found on it. If you're a birder, you may like it. You can also find little lizards and large iguanas. There is no beach to speak of, but there is a dock. The service... More

Enjoyed lunch here and visited their island location on a snorkeling trip. This locally owned resort has great food and service. We relaxed here a few hours enjoying the views, and Wi-Fi then headed back out for more budget travel. Based on the snorkeling around the island location and food at the mainland location, I wish we had booked a... More

There is not a whole lot to do in Dangriga, and even though this hotel is right on the beach, it is not that good for going snorkeling (water a bit muddy) or hanging on the beach (sand flies). But the location is great if you are going to South Water Caye, and the staff is very friendly.
