“Our dream honeymoon”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

This was our first trip to Belize. We stayed the first full week of January. The Phoenix had the absolutely best service of any hotel or resort we have ever stayed out. The team at the front desk were truly at our beck and call and helped us with our every need. It was by far one of the cleanest, nicest hotels we saw while in San Pedro. Pools were great. The tours they booked us on were all excellent. Red Ginger was in the top 2 restaurants we ate at. We stayed in A9 which had wonderful views, and was absolutely huge. everything was modern and clean. Would we go back? Absolutely! We can't say enough about the staff. They were amazing!

Room Tip: All rooms seem quiet. There are no elevators so if you have trouble with stairs, choose a lower roo...

Our family of 4 stayed at The Phoenix hotel during the first week in January. We had a two room ground floor suite, and the accommodations were clean, comfortable and modern. All of the amenities were high end. It;s located at the northern border of the main town, which is essential if you want to stay at a classy place and be able to walk into town where all the shops, restaurants and actions is. The front desk staff is OUTSTANDING and will help you with anything you need. The restaurant services delicious food, but it took forever to be served. The spa was nice, and the "fitness center" was just a couple of machines in a mainly empty room - not even really a gym. But nowhere is perfect, but the Phoenix was close. One tip - put the do not disturb sign on your door if you don't want housekeeping to wake you up early in the morning to clean your room.

Room Tip: Pick a suite closest to the water as possible.

This is my 5th trip to Belize and first stay at the Phoenix. Nicest hotel/condos on Ambergris. Very nice and spacious Accomodations, beautiful pools and view and 24 Hour security guard. No riff raff. Great location to shops, restaurants and dive shops. They provide a free cell phone for local calls, and have a full service spa--the 90 minute deep tissue massage is out of this world.

What really sets this place apart, however, is the amazing staff that attends cheerfully to your every need, from. Oozing your excursions, to washing your dishes and delivering room service from their on site and excellent restaurant.

We had a medical emergency and the manager personally got us to Belize City and a PRIVATE hospital with the best care; he literally saved my daughter in law's life!

Wonderful people who offer old fashion personal and caring service in the newest and best facility in a super location, what more could you want?

I've traveled all over the world and stayed in many nice hotels, but this one has the best service I have ever encountered. The staff went the extra mile in making our stay enjoyable. When we were booked on a crowded tour, they were able to find us a private tour at the same price as the group tour. They made all our restaurant reservations and transport. Our room was fabulous, perfectly suited our needs, and was kept clean and nice. We'd definitely stay there again and highly recommend it. As added bonus is that the resort is just on the edge of town, so you could walk everywhere.

Truly the best place my family and I have ever stayed.

Our fantastic experience with the Phoenix started even before we arrived in San Pedro.

In organizing/planning for the trip I emailed and called the hotel numerous times(and I mean numerous). The staff always responded promptly to my inquires, and were always so polite. They made several suggestions that helped with our planning. They booked all of our amazing tours and made reservations for all of our dinners. I have never met a better staff anywhere I have visited.

When we finally arrived at the hotel, the front desk staff were so friendly and welcoming.

I really can't say enough about the staff - from the wonderful pool staff who were so attentive and always had a smile on their face, to the grounds staff who I had several conversations with and were so nice, to the cleaning staff who kept our rooms spotless, to the front desk staff who helped us change some of the reservations and the restaurant staff who were also so friendly and fun.

Bottom line, the staff at this hotel go over and above. A few examples. One day when it was a bit rainy, my daughter decided that she would like to bake some cookies. The hotel called several grocery stores for us to find which had a mix and they lent us a cookie sheet from the restaurant. Another time, when we were on a trip to see the ruins on the main land, and we were in the boat on the river getting to the ruins, the hotel called the boat captain to see how we were doing. And one lunch when we mentioned we were going to a local restaurant, the hotel called the restaurant without us knowing to advise them that we were coming.

Seriously, I can't say enough about THE FABULOUS STAFF AT THE PHOENIX.

Other things worth mentioning -

When we arrived at the hotel the beds, bathroom etc. are all decorated with beautiful red flowers.

The restaurant at the property is amazing.

The food at the pool is also great.

The property is kept immaculate.

THANKS TO THE STAFF AT THE PHOENIX, despite the fact that the weather was not perfect, WE HAD AN AMAZING TIME.

Room Tip: Honestly, what from I could see all rooms were amazing. We had a pool view, but could see the oce...

From inquiry through to the booking process ( very prompt replies with all questions answered )
Upon arrival we were greeted by staff who were very welcoming ( cold refreshing towels , tasty rum punch, a very nice orientation and above all an extremely beautiful , clean 2 bdrm condo ) Our family of 4 were so impressed & could not have been happier. ( my family is very fussy ! )
Everything promised was delivered plus more !
The location is great , close to grocery , restaurants, etc.
The pools at the resort are very clean , well maintained ( no chlorine ) but salt disinfection which we like better. The pools are not heated, and it's a good thing- the beautiful weather kept all three pools warm like a bath. All tours arranged for us by Phoenix staff, no hassles , very pleasant & enjoyable.
i could go on & on , This resort is very well managed, just take our advice STAY HERE !!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the front desk, pool bar , on site Red ginger
restaurant ( yummy meals ) house keeping ( squeaky clean ) & security guys for making us always feel looked after.
Happy New Year !!

Room Tip: anywhere in this resort is nice !

The staff are friendly and sincerely so. A short 15 minute hop from Belize City this island is really worth a visit. It is quaint, lots to do but really make it is the people. Although there are a lot of expats the businesses are run by locals and the service is great. I travel extensively throughout the Caribbean and Americas and this is the friendliest island I have yet visited. This hotel is clean and modern and front line sea front. The pool area is quite and clean but the location is perfect. In the centre of town, a 5 minute walk to everywhere, perfect. Although in town the hotel is quiet and very secure. I highly recommend it.
