I was sulking my way thru a rainy chilly Portland week when on Weds one of my favorite colleagues broke the news they had to cancel their trip due to a back injury. He really didn't want to see the trip go to waste --- one catch --- be there Friday!! I shifted into high gear and began exchanging email with Mark and Stacey, the resort general managers. I shamed my best friend to take the day off for her birthday and join me on this improbable impromptu adventure. Cashed in airline miles and away we went.
After a red eye to Miami and a long delay to get to Belize City, we boarded the Tropic Air cessna excited to see this place we had read about. If I could give six stars for service I would. The grounds were sparkling clean and the weather was in the 80s with a little breeze. We spent time visiting Ricky who was manning the pool bar :)
Our unit was a 2br beachfront with a huge wrap around patio --- full and well stocked kitchen with appliances, dishes etc..
Pamela and Danny got us set up to snorkel with Lil Alphonse which was great and we billed direct to our room. Even able to rent a golf cart at the front desk.
The Phoenix made everything so easy for us, with arranging our travel from BZE and taking care of our needs during our brief but wonderful stay. Thank you all!
