Pelican Reef Villas Resort
Travel Blogs from San Pedro
So today, our last full day in paradise, we decided to blow it out. We chartered with another group a catamaran to take us out to Hol Chan reserve then Shark Ray Alley and then on to Caye Caulker. And this morning started off a but rough. Ginger and I had touchy stomachs or the fact that we have been eating and drinking junk for days and no …
... We then took a cab to the water taxi dock, just in time for the 9:00 departure. We bought our tickets, and then, of course, had to stop for breakfast (Doritos) and a pee break before we boarded the boat. We were lucky and got to sit up top... but it was a fairly speedy, bumpy ride, so it did not help the hair situation at all. When we arrived at Caye Caulker, they deboarded our luggage, and we had to wait for them to pull ...

We moved one more time to another shallow area to try for bone fish. By this time it was close to noon and the heat of the sun was in full effect. I was on a 20 minute sunscreen reapplication cycle and I was still turning red.

Historical Traveler Reviews Pelican Reef Villas Resort San Pedro
Das beste Hotel auf Ambergris Caye
Wir haben hier auf einer Angelreise übernachtet. Das Pelican Reef ist das mit Abstand beste Hotel auf Ambergis Caye. Unser Appartement hatte ein prachtvolles Dekor und war mit Marmor, Edelstahl und überall mit viel Holz ausgestattet. Die Swim-Up-Bar war der beste Ort, um Cocktails und gleichzeitig die Aussicht auf den Ozean genießen.
Die Angestellten im Pelican Reef gaben sich mehr als alle Mühe um dafür zu sorgen, dass wir uns gut amüsierten. Sie haben für uns sogar einen fantastischen Kapitän engagiert, der wusste, wo es viele Fische gab. Ich hätte mit den Unterkünften und Angestellten im Pelican Reef nicht zufriedener sein können. Wir freuen uns darauf bald wiederzukommen.
Best hotel on Ambergris Caye
We stayed at Pelican Reef while on a fishing trip. Pelican Reef is by far the best place to stay on Ambergris Caye. The unit we stayed in was decorated in grand style, with granite, stainless steel and fine wood throughout. The swim up pool bar was a favorite place to enjoy cocktails while enjoying the oceanfront view. The Pelicn Reef staff went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. They even made fishing arrangements for us with a fantastic Captian who knew where the fish were. I could not be happier with the accommodations and staff at Pelican Reef. We are excited to return soon.
We stayed at the Pelican Reef Villas Resort in Ambergris Caye, Belize, October 6-12, 2007, on the advice of some friends of ours who had stayed there before. Man, we are glad we did!
Best place on the Island
We've stayed in and visited several resorts on Ambergris Caye and Pelican Reef is by far the nicest.
The rooms are beautiful, the grounds are spectacular and the location is great - far enough away from town to be quiet and peaceful but still a short golf cart ride to downtown. There are Kayaks and bicycles available for guest to use.
If you're looking for a beautiful, upscale place to stay, this is it!
Das beste Hotel auf der Insel
Wir haben uns schon einige Resorts auf Ambergris Caye angeschaut und in einigen übernachtet und das Pelican Reef ist das mit Abstand Schönste. Die Zimmer sind wunderschön, das Gelände ist atemberaubend und die Lage ist toll - es ist weit genug von der Stadt entfernt um ruhig und friedlich zu sein, aber trotzdem kann man das Stadtzentrum schnell mit dem Golf Cart erreichen. Den Gästen stehen Kajaks und Fahrräder zur Verfügung. Falls Sie ein wunderschönes, gehobenes Hotel suchen, dann ist es das Richtige.
Best Relaxing place in Belize
I headed to San Pedro, Belize with my boyfrend for some relaxation and fun in the sun. We rented a 3 bedroom condo from Pelican Reef Villas that was fantastic. They have a very friendly staff and a gorgeous and quiet view of the ocean. Its a short golf cart ride from town with a great pool, beachfront and pier to hang out at! I'd recommend to stay there in a heart beat! They'll even set up all your tours and activities that you want to do while on the island!
We recently stayed at the Pelican Reef with a large group (our group booked ten of the hotel's villa suites) and the experience for the most part was fantastic. These are rented condos, and they are beautifully furnished and gorgeous. The service is terrific, the staff is super friendly, and the beach and pier are great. Lori (the owner?) was very helpful with booking excursions, and very friendly. Our only complaint was the billing. The hotel had a 45 day cancellation policy, which we did not understand when we booked the room. Therefore, when we missed our flight, we were not pleased that we had to pay $400 for the room night. In addition, when we checked out, there were several rooms who were upset at the lack of billing transparency. If you stay there, I would request that daily room bills be sent to your room so there are no hard feelings when it is time to end your vacation. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone with those considerations...
Paradise at Pelican Reef Villas
Pelican Reef Villas was more than you could ever dream of. Not only were the villas absolutely beautiful and very clean but the property was breathtaking. From the long pier with a reef underneath so you can snorkel right off the pier (very convenient!) and the white beaches to the infinity pool with the swim up bar, it is a beautiful place and I would recommend Pelican Reed to anyone. We will definitely stay there when we travel to Ambergris Caye!!!
The Pelican Reef Villas are awesome. It is located on the southside but you can rent a golf cart and drive to the town. I highly recommend renting a golf cart though. The roads are rough and messy after it rains. If you travel here in October, I recommend bringing a rain coat. The villas are beautifully decorated and we had a first floor villa which opened right out onto the beach. Great view! The bar and pool are a great place to hang out. The pier is very nice to snorkel around/under. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Lori is great! She arranged all of our excursions. She gave us recommendations about which excursions to do and where to eat. We loved it so much that we are already talking about going back. To us, there is no other place to stay in San Pedro. Warning: there is construction underway right now at the property. They are adding two additional units to the front of the property. This did not distract us but it may some people.
When we first saw this resort in the process of construction, we felt it was one of the nicest accomodations near San Pedro. We returned for Christmas and New Years this year and stayed in the unit which we just recently bought. It is not well known yet, but I have no doubt it will be soon. Classy, great pool and bar, very well done.
