I was lucky enough to visit The Phoenix Belize along with 5 other girlfriends to celebrate a very special occasion - our 40th birthdays. Our experience exceeded our expectations from the very moment we arrived, to the moment we said goodbye!
STAFF: We booked our trip months ago, so many emails had been exchanged. During this process, Pam Simmons (Guest Services Manager) went out of her way to ensure we were well satisfied. She even had a cake, a signed birthday card from all the staff, rum and flowers awaiting our arrival. How thoughtful! They also ensured our flights from Belize City was arranged and even paid for our taxi upon arrival to San Pedro. Everyone at the front desk was happy, helpful and so polite. Belizeans are truly genuine and kind people. This really was apparent throughout our trip.
LOCATION: Situated in a PERFECT spot close to local markets and restaurants. They also provide complimentary bikes for guests and an inexpensive golf cart rental is located steps from their side entrance on Middle St. We always felt very safe.
POOL: Private, clean and so welcoming each day! We quickly made friends with Rolando (ask for one of his frozen mojitos by the way!) and he made sure we were well taken care of - towels, umbrellas etc. Maurice was also so great and even helped cut a fresh pineapple for us!
ROOM: There were 6 of us travelling so we booked a 3 bedroom suite (B4). Each room (including the veranda) was extremely spacious and we never felt overcrowded. The kitchen was well stocked with all essentials and housekeeping made sure everything was tidied immaculately.
WEATHER: Sun, sun, sun! We had glorious sunshine each day and a few minutes of rain here and there.
BEACH: Belize as a whole isn't known for their walk-in beaches with rolling waves. Due to the closeby reef, their waters are calm and grassy. Paradise dock is located steps away should you wish to swim in the Caribbean, which we did many times!
It was truly a memorable week! Thank you again!
