The Phoenix Resort
Ranked #1 of 55 Hotels in San Pedro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 18, 2010

We just returned from a WONDERFUL week at this amazing resort. Everything you've read is true... from the quick flight from Belize City to San Pedro to the greeting at reception from Pamela and Rose and the welcome cocktail from Toa - to the tour of our condo by Stacey - the photos on the web site are absolutely what you get --our condo #A-1 was huge with great views of the pool on one side and the ocean on the other. We walked to beach and enjoyed the people of Belize. The snorkling with Lil Alphonse and the diving woth the folks at the Ecological Dive center - a 2 minute walk from the resort - We made friends with the people (Emerson and Daniel) of Hurricanes (tanisha's) a short walk down the beach - 5 minutes -- the golf cart rental and driving the island was a hoot as there are very few "paved" roads but made the drive more fun --

A visit to the new butterfly room at the Belize Yacht club and going across the bridge to the North side of the island either waking or by golf cart are not to be missed taking time to stop at Coco Locos and the Palapa Bar - you can even get a ride back to the Phoenix by water taxi if you've had a little to much fun!

All and all -- it was certainly a great vacation and a perfect a great relaxing vacation!

The Phoenix is everything advertised. It starts with the arrangement of your air travel over from Belize City, paid taxi ride from the airport on Ambergris Caye and continues on throughout your stay. The resort is very well kept, inside and out. The staff are all exceptional and very accomodating. There is on-site security to make you feel safe during your stay. I went here with my wife and two friends and we had an absolute blast! Coming back to the Phoenix after a long day of activities was always something we looked forward to.

My wife and I just celebrated our 40th anniversary at the Phoenix Belize. We had been to San Pedro many times and have stayed at hotels up and down the beach. We even got to watch the Phoenix Belize while it was being built. Finally on this trip we got to stay there. The two weeks that we were there far exceeded our expectations. The location is great - within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The grounds are amazing - they are immaculate - and with only 30 condos it feels intimate while at the same time being new and modern. The rooms are huge with high ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and top notch amenities. However what makes the Phoenix Belize so special is the staff. Every person that we came in contact with, whether it was the office staff, the maids, the waiters, the bar tender, or the gardener, greeted us with a smile and asked if there was anything that they could do to make our visit more pleasant. The Phoenix Belize made our 40th anniversary seem like a honeymoon. We have already started planning next year's trip for our 41st.

This resort and the staff were outstanding. I actually found out about the resort by reading reviews on this site and the great feedback people gave was spot on. Everyone that works at the Phoenix was extremely nice and helpful. These are not your typical rooms. They are condos with full kitchen, dining area, living area, washer/dryer, walk in showers, etc.... Tons of room for the price, new, and very well kept. This has to be one of the best bargains in all of Belize.

If you are going to San Pedro in Belize, there is only one place to stay and that is The Phoenix Resort. It was our home away from home. Absolutely amazing accommodation, huge bedrooms, huge bathrooms, perfect views of the pool, grounds, beach and ocean. The staff were fantastic, the location is absolutely perfect, walking distance to everything. The resort is only two years old so everything is new and modern. I would not stay anywhere else in San Pedro.

Recently stayed at the Phoenix with my daughter, son-in-law, granddaughters and friends, and each and every one of us had an absolutely fantastic week, due in part to this beautiful resort and all the staff who were helpful, friendly and accommodating beyond the call of duty. We positively could not have been better cared for, the grounds are kept meticulously clean, the dive and tour services recommended to us were all great; all in all not one negative. Thank you so much to all the staff at the Phoenix.

My wife and I stayed here for 10 days. We had the flight from Belize City arranged by the Phoenix. They also took care of the taxi from the airport. (BTW, when you land in Belize, Tropic Air is right around the corner from where you pick up your bags and you can save the porter fees by taking them yourself.) Stacey said that they were tracking our flight when we arrived.
The first night, I had back problems (used to a water bed) but the mattress was flipped and I never had problems after that. I think that I just wasn't used to such firm mattesses as these are new matresses.
The people at check in were very friendly and helpful. You can rent a golf cart by the hour from them.
The security guard even helped us carry up our scuba equipment when we returned to the room.
When my wife thought that she had lost her driver's license, they even made special calls to find it.
All in all, the most personal service that we have ever had at a resort/hotel.
