“Perfect Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

We were two couples that stayed here for 3 nights in one of the oceanfront 2 bedroom suites. The rooms are very nice, modern and comfortable and bonus points for being able to do laundry in the room after staying in the jungle for 4 nights! The property is wonderfully maintained, and the staff is fantastic at arranging whatever you desire to do...from dinner reservations to snorkeling excursions. The pool area is lovely and we enjoyed eating breakfast out on one of the tables every morning. The views from the beach are beautiful, especially off of the pier. My husband had speared some crab and lobster on a fishing trip, and the staff aranged to have the seafood all cooked and prepared for us in their kitchen! Totally awesome! We really enjoyed staying here and loved Ambergris Caye. The town is cute and lively, there are great restaurants ( loved Hidden Treasure and Wild Mangoes), great nightlife (don't miss the Chicken Drop on Thursday nights), and snorkling the reef was out of this world. Highly reccomend Lil Alphonse for Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley.

Room Tip: One of the ocean front rooms on the bottom floor is best!

Returned home today from the best vacation experience I and the wife have had. First the resort is even more beautiful than any picture can show. Upon arrival was met by Terri who was the most awesome friend throughout our entire stay honestly just can't come up with the right words to describe this awesome lady she was there for any and all that was needed or asked for with a smile, miss you already Terri. Then we met Ruth who is just as friendly and accomodating and makes the best drinks in Central America, sorry Ruben but you do well also. And then there was Manuel who was also busy but also had time to stop chat and smile while taking care of business. I have never vacationed anywhere that the entire staff actually knew who you were and called you by name as they do at Pelican Reef. Even Greg made sure he stopped and checked on us during our visit and it's not often you get to meet the man who runs it all. Pelican Reef is beautiful, clean, roomy yet cozy and an experience I look forward to enjoying again.....I can tell you if you ever visit here the staff will not allow you to want for anything...you will be pampered your entire visit...thanks again for a wonderful vacation Terri, Ruth, Ruben, Manuel and the rest of the staff at Pelican Reef.

Went to Belize off season to relax after Thanksgiving and work stress...Pelican Reef Resort was responsive to our needs - staff was very attentive, breakfast good and hot, unlimited coffee, snorkeling beautiful, and everyone was laid back...

Ask for Terri and she will make great recommendations on what to see. Consider going to Hidden Treasure for first night - food was good but when you later see other alternatives that are just as good but not as pricy - you may consider walking to Tex-Mex place just up the road...

Room Tip: we had a 3 bedroom and it had a single jacuzzi tub and a double in the master....view from master wa...

With the luxury of a hotel resort but the personal service and amenities of a condo community, Pelican Reef Villas was the perfect choice for us to complete our Belize vacation. We spent a week in more rural areas and wanted to spend a few days on relaxation after all the hiking and excursions. A two-bedroom accommodation was perfect for us: Two late-twenties/early-thirties couples who needed a bit more space and privacy. We also love to cook, and the kitchen was fantastic. The distance from town was not a problem; taxis were readily available and very accommodating of our needs. Golf carts were also available, but you really need to rent them a few days in advance. Loved the little artificial reef under the pier; a great way to get some sea-life watching in if open water is a bit scary for you. The beach was better for sitting on than swimming at, but swimming of the end of the dock was great. The pool is just smallish, but the infinity edge is neat.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face the pool/bar area, as we had one and it was a bit noisy at night...

I really don't know where to begin, arrived at night in the rain and was greeted at the taxi by Ruth with an umbrella and a suggestion of a cocktail......WOW how did you know I was needing one of those!!!! This is a beautiful place very clean and service is impeccable, my best friends from HS get together every year for a week together,we usually always go somewhere new,but this will definentley be a place we return to. From Terri,Ruth,Rueben,carol,and we can't forget our FAV cabbie Carlos!!! Charlie's angels will be back to see you all very soon.......thx for the fantastic memories and the farewell tears have dried a little ,only because we know we will be back.......if you visit San Pedro then you must stay here!!!

The staff at the Pelican Reef are phenomenal. They made us feel like we were part of the family starting from day 1. From the time we arrived in San Pedro and greeted by our already set up taxi "Carlos" to our first Rum Punch drink made by the famous Ruth. Terri is amazing, she made sure all our accommodation were met by preparing our excursion to making sure we had sunscreen. Terri, Ruben, Carol and Ruth went out of their way to make sure our trip was a memorable one. The "angels" had the time of their lives and will always remember their new found friends. We will be back and looking forward to seeing each one of you again. Miss you all bunches..... Julie

The team at Pelican Reef is unBELIZEable!!! I go on an annual trip with my High School best friends and we definitely picked a great spot this year. From the time we arrived at the airport to the time we left, we were given 'first class' treatment. They are SO FUN! They really know how to pinpoint what we would like to do and send us in the right direction. It was if they were reading our minds and telling us what is available before we could tell them what we wanted. HUGE HUGS to Terry, Ruth, Rueben, Carol, Carlos, and Santos.... you guys are INCREDIBLE!!! I've already recommended you to others (including a travel agent friend of mine) and although "the angels" like to visit new places.... I think we'll be back!!! (just a forewarning) HAHA It's rare that I get tears in my eyes saying goodbye to the employees at a resort....much less, they tear up too! We all miss you so much and THANK YOU for a fabulous week!!!
