My experience at Pelican Beach was like most of the reviews. From the arrival at the pretty little dock to the day I departed 3 days later, it was all good. The beach snorkeling was good, and with hammocks at each cottage and also on the deck, relaxing was also easy to do. My cottage was basic but reminded me... More

After a week between Lamanai and Chan Chich we decided to rest up for the trip home at Pelican Beach. Turned out to be a poor choice. To get there required a ride of about an hour +/- in a 20 ft, skiff with outboard motor. Unfortunately for us it was very windy and there were white caps on about... More

My girlfriend and I had an amazing time. After a somewhat lengthy and a little rough boatride, we couldn't believe our eyes. This little island is like what you'd see in a movie. Beautiful water, beach, coconut trees and mangroves. We stayed in Heron's Hideaway, a standalone little cottage right on the water. It was gorgeous. Very private, comfortable, rustic... More

My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights and 4 days during our honeymoon trip to Belize. It was wonderful! Beautiful beach, great snorkeling and kayaking, excellent food, and the most wonderful staff. They really took care of us and made us feel at home on our remote tropical island. Highly recommended, it is worth the cost. Perhaps the... More

Pelican Beach was great. Our room was very nice. Comfortable bed, plenty of hot water for showers, great views from the room but still felt very private, and a fantastic staff. Excellent secluded island paradise!

We stayed for five nights in January 2015 and had an absolutely brilliant time. It is a fantastic place and the staff are really lovely people. Our only slight reservation was that the resort was not quite as private as the website implies. The west beach seems to be open to the public and a couple of yachts moored just... More

Pelican Beach at South Water Caye is so phenomenal I don't know where to start. When I got off the boat I felt like it was straight out of a movie. It's beautiful: sand, some palms, and ocean. Leonard and Theresita were excellent hosts, arranging whatever it is that you need. We stayed in the Heron's Hideaway room, which is... More

OK, we got off the boat on this island. I just started laughing. Yes, that's right, just laughing, because it was so ridiculously perfect that I could not believe it was real. The gentleman who greeted us started laughing too, because he knew exactly what was going on in my mind. We went with our two small kids, who we... More

We spent 4 nights at Pelican Beach on Southwater Caye and wish we could have stayed longer. It was amazing! We were barefoot the entire time -- the sign of a truly relaxing vacation!! First, the staff were such amazing hosts and made us feel so at home and comfortable. Leonard and Terry made sure that we had everything we... More
