Pelican Reef Villas Resort

1. Location: Aside from the obvious reasons to travel to Belize, and specifically San Pedro, the Pelican Reef Villas is a great place to stay because its location is sublime. The minute you arrive and see the gorgeous pier that juts out into the beautiful blue sea you’ll understand why this place is so great. It is a small villa with only 24 units, so it is intimate and cozy and very well decorated. It is within walking distance of many things as well as a quick taxi or golf cart ride away from town. For the many activities, which are mentioned below, you can simply walk out to the end of pier for pickup.

2. Activities: There are many things to do on in San Pedro, including Scuba diving in some very amazing places, including The Blue Hole. You can also go snorkeling, zip lining and visit some Mayan ruins. There is also the Belize Zoo and when on various excursions for scuba diving and snorkeling you get to visit Half Moon Caye, home to a sanctuary for exotic birds. You are well taken care of by guides for each excursion and everything is planned and ready for you so all you have to do is show up and have a good time. These kind of adventures can also be very family friendly and you can be sure there will be something for everyone on one of these trips.

3. Friendly Staff: One of the many endearing qualities of the Pelican Reef Villas Resort is the amazing staff that works there. From the minute you arrive they trip over themselves to make sure you are taken care of. They will plan excursions for you and take care of all the details, they will inform you of everything that there is to do, help you find places to eat or have food brought to you and even find you a sweater if you are cold. It is a unique thing to find such service from a hotel, you’ll leave this place wanting to move and live there permanently or at the very least come back often.
