You could not find a better location than "The Phoenix"
if you enjoy being in the heart of San Pedro--"La Isla Bonita!"
It is just steps away to everything in this island town. There are several
small grocery stores close by (Caye Mart--good play on words), however, things
are not cheap, especially food. Our 1st trip to Caye Mart, we bought
several bags of chips, 4 small bottles of water, several cans of different
sodas, coffee mate, and a bag of plastic cups and spoons. Our total
was around $35.00 USD. Eating out was much less expensive for us!
And I'm on vacation anyway...no cooking!! LOL
We did take advantage of the golf carts for our entire trip to Ambergris Cayes. The Phoenix
took care of getting us a golf cart for our time there.
And golf carts are everywhere...
this is one of main ways of transportation on the island. We were able to go
up north and south of the island without any problems.
We enjoyed exploring the entire island,
however, of note, it can get bumpy in certain places.
And to our surprise, we had no problems with bugs/insects/mosquitos.
Maybe, August is a good time of the year! :))
The resort has a beautiful setting. I believe all the rooms face the Caribbean Sea, so you
can't go wrong with any room at this place. We stayed in the "C" building on the 2nd floor,
with wonderful views of the pools and the sea.
The staff will take care of any needs you might have. Just ask! While at the lap
pool, Abel, a pool attendant, noticed that we were sitting in the sun on the lounge
chairs, and walked over to asked if we'd like an "umbrella," which we gladly accepted.
It's the small things in life that make a difference...
and make a place stand out from all the others. And The Phoenix is one of them!
Everything, from the staff, the enormous rooms, the beautiful grounds, the sparking
3 pools, Red Ginger, was exceptional.
The only thing that The Phoenix did not have was a beach.
And this is to no fault of The Phoenix. There in not anything that they
could possibly alter/modify to allow a beach. However, our 9 year old daughter
would of loved digging in the sand and making sand castles.
The front staff did suggest severals places on the island for our little one
to frolic in the sand.
The staff did surprise our daughter with a tasty birthday cake (Black Forest--my favorite!),
during our stay there...she was thrilled!
Overall, I would recommend this resort to anyone. It is quiet and relaxing.
A wonderful place on Ambergris Cayes!!
