We had an incredible 9-day vacation at PRV in mid-January. The accommodations, staff and location were fabulous and this was definitely the best vacation we have ever had. Special thanks to Teri and Ruth for organizing fabulous day trips, recommending great restaurants, and doing everything possible to help us relax and enjoy our stay. We snorkeled a lot, fished, went cave tubing, visited the zoo (including a special up-close encounter with a jaguar), and toured the Lamanai ruins. If possible, I suggest you fly from San Pedro instead of taking the boat for all of the mainland activities. It is worth the extra expense to save time, beat the crowds, and avoid potentially rough seas. We also rented a golf cart for most of our stay, which also added to the “adventure”.
The only minor negatives at PRV were, as a few others have pointed out, a relatively noisy A/C system (we mostly turned it off at night and relied on the ceiling fans but you can also turn the fan from Auto to On to keep the noise level constant) and intermittent and/or weak Wi-Fi (although Greg had someone fixing it as we left). However, these minor issues did not detract from an incredible vacation. The high ratings PRV gets on TripAdvisor are well-deserved. We can’t wait to go back!
