This is my third time leading a group to stay at the Pelican Pouch Resort on South Water Caye. It will definately not be my last. This is a true tropical paradise! From the 1st minute you are greeted on the dock until the moment the wave good-bye, everything was perfect. The accommodations are clean and beautiful, the food was... More

Pelican Beach Resort is located on what is basically a sandbar held together with coconut trees on top of the reef (most others must take a boat—you’ve already taken one an hour to get here), so snorkeling is just a matter of wading out and sticking your head in the water. From our beach, we saw several boats of day... More

What a lovely piece of paradise for the environmentally oriented visitor. This is a small resort with cottages and rooms in the main building. We stayed in a cottage which we would highly recommend, it was simple, comfortable and very clean. Each cottage (two singles and the rest are duplexes) had a rain barrel, solar panel and composting toilet to... More

We did not stay at the hotel in Dangriga but rather their sister place on South Water Caye Pelican Beach Resort. We did hear that the hotel, although nice, was a bit noisy due to the adjacent airport (small planes). Dangriga itself is a bit dirty and busy, but probably interesting... The Caye (pronounced "key") was fabulous. We took a... More

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at South Water Caye at the end of our Central American trip through Honduras and Guatemala. We were looking to avoid the crowds of Ambergris and Caye Caulker and for a place we could snorkel from the beach. This we found. The caye is on the edge of the MesoAmerica reef so... More

I spent five nights at Pelican Beach in February 2014. This place is tropical paradise defined. We spent our first two nights in the Pelican's Pouch rooms and the last three in Egret's Escape. The cottage was fantastic, but the rooms were a bit rustic (very simple furnishings, composting toilets, not all rooms have a shower). You're not there to... More

My first real trip to Belize other than a cruise ship stop several years ago. We landed in Belize City then hopped a Tropic Air Cessna Caravan down to the tiny landing strip near the mainland Pelican Beach Resort. They picked us up and took us to their dock for the 40 minute boat ride out the the island resort,... More

I was in belize for a little less then a month and this was the most memorable part. On the boat ride out to the island the driver stopped for us to watch a school of dolphins which was really cool. We got there and immediately the skies were blue. Belize had not had the best weather, but the island... More

My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights at the Pelican Beach Resort. After 30 hours of travel, a taxi, 4 planes and a boat ride, we were fantastically welcomed by Theresita, Leonard and the team making us really glad to have made the trip. The grilled lobster and coconut cake were most appreciated as our first meal in Belize. We... More

My Husband and I stayed here for 3 night in January 2014. We loved it. It was an intimate and truly relaxing experience. Pelican Beach resort is a simple, rustic and clean resort on a perfect cay with perfect sand, water and palm trees. It is also eco friendly which is such a bonus. We went during high season and...
