My wife, 7 year old son and myself spent the month of July (2010) at The Phoenix. We've tried to write a review a couple times and stopped because we can't find the right words to describe how magical it was.
Firstly - San Pedro the town is fantastic. Although it's very small (it's not a night club/party town) it is one of the cleanest and friendliest towns we've visited in extensive travels. We were there for World Cup Final as well and had a blast.
The Phoenix itself is everything you read in the 100+ reviews. It's beautiful, clean and has one of the nicest pools on the island. Pam, Stacy & Mark were absolutely terrific. Travelling with a 7 year old we spent a lot of time on family events but on the nights we wanted to go out Pam stepped up and helped us out by babysitting. Not a regular part of her job and don't assume she will, but so kind of her to help us out.
The Phoenix team also set up amazing day trips with Alfonso and Oliver for fishing, diving, snorkeling and everything else we did. Need a golf cart? Don't bother searching, just ask the team. I hurt my foot and needed a doctor the night before we flew out. The security team got on the phone at 11 p.m. and found me a doctor (who was also terrific and very reasonable.)
I could go on and on about how great San Pedro and The Phoenix is but if you're reading this you are already interested - book it and go. You won't regret it.
