our 3 weeks "around Belize trip " we ended at SWC for 5 days and despite the cold front that hit us on our last 2 days we felt so surreal and blessed that we had the change staying on this magical little island. We left Dangriga with beautiful weather so a smooth boat ride took us to this little... More

We booked 3 nights and 4 days, thinking we would get bored here because we like to go, go and go faster. We should have opted for one more night. First of all - I'm not a tree hugging "save the whales" type of guy. I would like I think I'm responsible and don't litter and obey rules such as... More

Pelican Beach was an amazing end to our travels in Belize. We spent three days here. We spent most of the days out on the boat with Alton, who was an amazing guide. Kevin and Mr. Leonard were great hosts. The kitchen staff was amazing. All of the food was wonderful. There is wifi in the bar. Our room was... More

This is a beautiful place to visit, and great for families. Snorkeling and fishing is great. The food is good -- but the hotel does not really offer any decent snacks. Bring a bunch. Take a detour to the island of frigatebirds on your way to or from the island.

Doing a familiarization trip considering properties for women's group tours, this was recommended by our travel designer. OMG. Simple. Authentic. Non-commercial. Paradise. Our approach by the boat from Dangriga told us immediately we were about to touch land in paradise. Our boat ride over was pretty wet because the waters were choppy so be prepared just in case. Rain ponchos... More

Our stay at Pelican Beach was fantastic. The entire staff was great particularly Leonard. He saw to everything we needed and was great with post dinner conversation on the breezy deck lit by tiki torches and candle light. Every meal was delicious with fantastic local flavor: think lobster, cassava pudding, fresh baked goods and fruits. The accommodations were good with... More

Difficult to describe this place in words. This place is magnificent. The resort is perfectly low key and eco-friendly - if it were any more luxurious it would take away from the terrific natural beauty of the beach and island. The resort is covered in perfect white sand, and you can walk barefoot everywhere you go. The palm trees sway... More

After our 2013 stay, we raved to our friends and family about SWC. So much so, my sister and her husband committed to accompanying us in 2014. We were very happy to assist them in making arrangements. They had little experience with 'off the beaten path' traveling. And, we have earned our lessons the hard way. Main lesson for us:... More

After 4 nights in a jungle lodge, the ocean at Pelican Beach was the perfect end to our time in Belize. The cabins are lovely with great views, ceiling fans, and a cross breeze. The staff are delightful; attentive and very capable. I recommend talking the kitchen into letting you share the Belize dishes that they make for staff. I... More

I just got back from Pelican Beach Resort South Water Caye and it was very nice. The people were extremely nice and very attentive to any need you might have. I was solo, so it was a bit of a different experience. Eating alone was a bit uncomfortable, but that was due to my choice of going alone. To be... More
