Pelican Beach - Dangriga
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Dangriga
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Pelican beach is on the water and there is sand and palm trees there but it is not anyone's idea of a beach. As it is on the lagoon and just north of Dangriga the water is often nurky and certainly no place to snorkel.
The hotel is old but clean and the staff are are very good.
We were only there for one night and we had a room #6 that had no outside windows and smelled musty even with the AC going full on.
There were sand flies on the pattio of the restaurant but the hotel provides bug spray and powerful fans to keep them away. This way we were able to eat breakfast lunch and dinner outside
It is very close (300m) to the airport and ideal for a night after returning from Glovers Reef.
There is nothing close by and a fairly long walk back into Dangriga.

Room Tip: Be sure not to get #6!

My wife and I spent one night here while transferring out to Glovers Reef. The hotel was very mediocre: we didn't really like Dangriga at all, our room smelled kind of unpleasant, service was blah and there was some type of animal running across our ceiling intermittently. We were extremely happy that we had no more than 18 hours there and if we could go back in time, we would have made sure we had no more than 18 minutes there.

My daughter and her fiancée were married here January 11. The venue was perfect! The staff made the celebration so personal! The cost of the wedding and dinner afterward was beyond reasonable. The beach, while small, was clean and picturesque. The dock was PERFECT. We paid much more for a stay at a private caye later ....but I would say save your money as the Pelican was just as comfortable and scenic. The rooms were modern and reasonably priced...air conditioning, room refrigerator, great little restaurant, friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay again. One small drawback was spiders in the room.... But room was beachfront, so this could just be part of the territory.

We (couple, 40 & 50 years old) stayed at Pelican Beach Resort in November 2013 for two nights. We paid US$100 a night. Our room was clean and average sized. The furnishings were a little bit worn and dated. We had a semi-private balcony looking directly over the beach but it was over the restaurant and a bit noisy. The bathroom was large but also a bit worn; the water was hot. The beds were comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. The restaurant serves good food. The hotel is a long walk from the center of town and taxi rides costs US$5. Pelican Beach is a nice resort type hotel and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Dangriga who is looking this level of hotel.

Our one night stay at Pelican Beach was Fantastic! The staff are friendly and welcoming and the hotel is lovely. Our room was clean and had a great view. The beach is lovely and perfect for an early morning swim. The choice of different food at the restaurant is huge and the service was great! They organised a transfer to our next destination for us and included a fantastic packed lunch. I would defiantly recommend this place! Don't let any bad reviews put you off!

We had a great stay. They took care of everything from picking us up from the Mayan Island Air to making sure our bags were in our room. The room was clean, including the shower. The staff was great. The resort is clean. We thought it was reasonable priced for a place in Belize. We enjoyed the quieter less crowded feel of other resorts. We travel to Belize at least 3 times a year and like to stay here while on our way to out final destination. Remember Belize is still growing this is not Cancun. Go with an open mind and enjoy what you see not what you don't.
