“Great hotel, when can I come back?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Stayed with my BF at Pelican Reef in September during LOW season we were upgraded to 2 bedroom Ocean Front. The hotel was everything you can ask for, and the staff will make excellent recommendations for tours and meals. Also, they will book any trips that are needed.

Pros:

Great staff
Large fully equiped rooms
Great breakfast and good drinks
Clean, quiet beach for relaxing
The pool was big enough, some nights we we had to ourselves

Cons:

There are not a lot of places to eat nearby
Flies (inside or on the dock, not a problem), there is bug spray in a basket near the bar

Room Tip: All the room are good. But room 7 is great directly oceanfront, you can see the Ocean from your bed...

If sun, warm water & adventures are what you seek, all the while experiencing Belizean hospitality at its finest, then book your trip to the Pelican Reef Villas NOW!! Our family (including 2 teenage girls) experienced a trip of a lifetime here. Everything was 1st class... Starting with our booking through Glori all the way through our stay with the staff of Ruth, Armando, Enrique, Santos & everyone else at PRV. The rooms, property, food, staff... EVERYTHING was beyond our expectations. We can't say enough about how great our time spent there was. Not to mention the great excursions of Belize Enrique can book for you on the property: snorkeling, diving, fishing, cave tubing, Mayan ruins, ANYTHING! Just ask Enrique and he'll take care of all the details so you can get back to relaxing on the beach, in the pool or at the bar with a cold Belikin! And if that isn't enough, grab a golf cart and head into nearby San Pedro for more fun & adventure whether it's shopping or eating at one of the many beachfront bars & restaurants. Our time in Belize was heavenly and a BIG part of that was due to our stay at Pelican Reef Villas and their great crew! We can't wait for our return trip!

We stayed a week in July 2014. However, the relationship with staff began long before that. Glori was fantastic at booking all our tours and transfers so that it was seamless from the moment we hit the ground. Ruth, Enrique and all the staff take excellent care of you once you arrive.

We stayed in unit #3 with a great view of the sea. Thanks Amanda and Robard!

Things to know when evaluating choices of places to stay: Pelican Reef is far south from the city proper, which makes for a quiet stay. You MUST rent a golf cart for your stay. Glori can arrange that before you come. Remember everything closes around 9 pm so if you don't have food in your room and you haven't eaten you will be hungry...

The road to town is unpaved for about a mile and it is a bit rough in spots. For us it was worth the drive. The unpretentious, homey feel was perfect.
We would come back.

We stayed at Pelican Reef for 4 nights in the beginning of July. Carlos picked us up from the airport without a hassle and upon arrival at the resort, we're greeted with a rum punch and bags taken to our room. The 2 bedroom villa was spacious, very clean, and well appointed with everything we could need. Couldn't have asked for anything more. The pool and swim-up bar were great on the more humid days and the beach and dock were great places to spend time as well. Had a great time and can't wait to get back.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the ocean view if you can, nice breezes.

Although I did not stay there and was only there for futbol and drinks the staff and guests seemed comfortable and friendly. The drinks a little pricey for San Pedro but such is life with higher standards. Not a complaint just an observation. The pelican roost is built like a cave over the pool. Cool and shady. Great staff!

Our group of 6 couples stayed at this beautiful property. From the time we arrived, we got the royal treatment. Greeted with a welcome sign, a aromatherapy washcloth to cool us off, a beverage and several attendants to take our bags. The staff was so accommodating and friendly. We felt at home here.
The condos are well designed, and in good condition. The staff helped us with whatever we needed! They coordinated all of our activities and reservations, and have no shortage of ideas for things to do! The property is further out from town, which we actually preferred. It's a fun golf cart ride to town (you can rent golf carts at the property). This is the best property in Belize in my opinion. It's quaint, relaxing yet fun, and not stuffy (which was important for our group who likes to have a good time!).

This is an excelent place, the atention of tthe staff is incredible. Special thanks to Enrique. The resort is a little far from time, wich is good because is silent, but is not that good to fine places to eat. The villas are very good, the rooms and the view. We will come back for sure.
