We loved this resort. It was a great place for a family location. We took our one year old and had no issues. The staff was very helpful. It was a beautiful location. Try the frozen mojitos by the pool.

My husband and i just returned from 8 days in Belize and can't say enough great things about The Phoenix!! The rooms are big and beautiful and almost all have a view of the pool and beach. The grounds are exquisitely kept. The staff is wonderful and incredibly accommodating. Although located right in the center of the San Pedro strip, you would almost never know it when you are on the resort grounds. I could go on and on but suffice to say that we will return - and we have yet to say that about any hotel we've ever been to!!

This is a wonderful place to spend quality time with your family. There is an impressive collection of board games and DVDs to borrow at your leisure, there is every kind of water or beach activity and a wonderful spot to read and relax. We loved renting bikes and riding along the coast and strongly recommend the snorkeling trip with Lil Alphonse. I swam every morning in the lap pool which was just perfect!
The only thing they could do to make our vacation perfect would be adding a few hammocks either on the balcony or under some of the trees.

Everything went off without a hitch, thanks to the excellent staff at the Phoenix. We arrived mid-day and were greeted each by name, and handed a tasty and interesting beverage (with a rum mixer for the grown ups). Our 4 year old was so excited with the cool wash cloth he was given to refresh his face, that he asked to take it to our room with him. The "room" is more of a condo, and was far bigger than our first apartment in Washington DC. We had 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a lovely kitchen and living area. Everything looks exactly as it does on the website. Little gifts were in the room, such as a bottle of rum and mixers with recipes. Coffee and tea are provided in the room daily for the guest's kitchen. Robes and slippers are also in the room and are very comfy- the slippers are yours to keep. The views are spectacular- looking out over the pool and toward the water is a treat in itself. And speaking of the pool, the "Dirty Banana" drink prepared poolside is not to be missed. We look forward to a return visit!

The Phoenix Resort is the best hotel on the island at least in my humble opinion. Lets' run it down. First its located in the heart of San Pedro, yet it is quiet and peaceful. You can walk to restaurants along the beach and if you dont like to walk, the hotel's restaurant is one of the best around. Our room was wonderful. A top floor overlooking the pools and the ocean. We loved the view even in the rain. We had two bedrooms and two baths and it was truly wonderful. Not pure luxury but not wanting in any way.

All that being said, what really makes The Phoenix stand out is service. It starts with being picked up at the airport. Then being met with a cold towel and drinks. Your luggage seems to wisk away on its own to your room. OK so some of you are saying that is true of lots of places. What amazed me was the helpful desk staff. We like to take trips. They set up everything and with the best guides. We did all the normal snorkle and dive trips and a few extra thrown in and all were top notch. We were asking about a trip to the ruins and magically we were given several options. We choose a trip with one of the best guides we have ever had, "Charlie Chan". I kid you not his name was really "Charlie Chan".

At the end of the day many resorts offer these type of services and accomidations. The Phoenix has a level of service that is worth noting and worth trying.

You are greeted with a cold towel, a cold drink and a shot of rum by a smiling happy staff. Your luggage is whisked away. Next a short tour of the facilities, then entrance to your large beautiful unit, it is not just a "room". Flowers on your bed and bathroom, a personal welcome note with a small bottle of rum, coke and a delicious treat. Everything you would need is provided and staff is outstanding. Quiet as the hotel is, you are just steps away from the busy, active town of San Pedro and a beautiful ocean view. A warm rain came while I was there but not a problem, an umbrella is provided in your closet. I decided to move to San Pedro and the excellent staff called around until they found a long term rental (it took a few days because of the "high season" but they did it!). Great team!
