The Phoenix resort is a little oasis, right smack bang in the quaint ramshack town of San Pedro. We stayed for 8 nights with our Son and Daughter and their respective significant others in one of the 3 bedroom condo's in the resort, and I must confess to being a little concerned that we might be a little crowded. However, my concerns turned out to be totally unjustified. Each large double bedroom had a huge kingsized bed and the 2 enormous bathrooms and large living area were more than big enough. The gorgeous suite was fully kitted out with everything you could possibly need, including brand new full sized fridge feezer, dishwasher, microwave, blender, toaster, coffee machine etc etc, and a full in-suite laundry meant that I didn't come home to piles of dirty washing. The resort itself is small enough to be intimate and personal, yet large enough to be fully serviced. The Reg Ginger Restaurant is arguably the best on the island, but a little too pricey for a large group (who happen to all be poor students you're paying for) to eat there regularly. However, don't do what we did and leave it until near the end of your stay to sample the chocolate lava cake dessert - My husband would sell his first born for another one of those. The mutitude of staff, from front desk to the groundsmen who keep the place immaculate are genuinely friendly and happy and dealt with our very few requests within minutes of us making them.
We love the town of San Pedro, love the diving (we used Amigo's del Mar which is a 2 minute walk down the beach), love the climate, which is always warm and breezy and never oppressive and have been to the Island twice before, staying in other hotels just down the beach, but now, I would sooner not go back than stay anywhere else - I'd just feel cheated!
