My wife and I chose Belize for our 10th anniversary trip. We stayed inland near San Ignacio to experience ATM tour and other adventures, but looked forward to staying at The Phoenix for our 'chilll time'. We chose to stay at The Phoenix after reading all the stellar reviews on Trip Advisor and other sites. We were not disappointed. The property itself is beautiful, the rooms bordering on rediculously huge, great pool with wonderful views and sounds of the ocean, great staff (special thanks to Gabriella who helped set up some wonderful tours and gave great recommendations for local grub)! We loved, I say LOVED being so close to the busy streets and action of San Pedro. All the restuarants, beaches, food, grocery stores, our golf cart rental and even our dive site were within mere steps of The Phoenix. There is no other place I would stay after looking hard at some of the other sites in and around San Pedro. Thanks again to everyone at The Phoenix!
My only suggestion (and I was lucky enough to meet the fine owners of The Phoenix and I personally shared this with them) is to figure out what you want out of your Red Ginger Restaurant. Not that one would need my advice with such a wonderfullly executed property you've developed, but I'm not sure that there is ever enough water/ocean view restauarant/bars. There does seem to be room near SW corner of property to build a cool bar 'on the beach/beach front'. JUST DO IT!:) I'll see if you've heeded my advice sometime in the near future on my return visit (hopefully very soon!)
