What a great place - San Pedro, and especially The Phoenix! Our traveling group of four shared a two-bedroom condo and loved everything about it. The rooms are really big, well-furnished, immaculately maintained, clean and comfortable. The pool and grounds are lovely, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The area is safe and secure (we were never uncomfortable or felt unsafe in all of San Pedro), and there is a security guard patrolling the hotel area day and night.
Our ocean-view condo (A-10) could not have been better. The living area as well as both bedrooms had patio doors opening to an awesome, large veranda overlooking the pool, with an incredible ocean view beyond and to the east. We were on the third floor (no elevator, but not a problem for us - the stairwells are open, tiled, wide spaces) and had the amazing view on the veranda side and covered parking for our golf cart (you will need a golf cart in San Pedro - it's the way everybody - locals as well as tourists - gets around!) on the entry side.
The only complaint from anyone in our group was that the bed pillows are really big and fluffy (and they provide lots of them!); flatter pillows are not available.
Our favorite things in Ambergris Caye: The Phoenix!; exploring San Pedro and the areas north and south (take bug spray!) by golf cart; The Palapa Bar (north); snorkeling with the sharks with Alphonse and Ivor (ask the front desk); fresh, hot corn tortillas from The Tortilla Factory (north); eating at Elvi's; the chicken drop at Caliente on Thursday nights; groceries at The Greenhouse; lobster!
