Chose The Phoenix because of all the positive reviews. No other place had 100% +. And they exceeded my expectations. Future trips elsewhere will be compared to The Phoenix. Great location in the heart of San Pedro. New. Modern amenities. GREAT lighting in the room -- with DIMMERS. Not crowded at all -- quiet and relaxing. Predominantly couples and families with grown kids. You get what you pay for. When you add up everything you'd pay for at other resorts in Belize, The PHoenix is well worth it.
Outdoor dining space on balcony with two reclining chairs. Jacuzzi tub in master bath. Pillows (about 8 of them) in every room. Slept like a baby. Wifi in the room and at the pool.
Great communication by the staff before our arrival (Thank you Stacy). They coordinated everything, including the connecting flight from Belize City. Our departing flight was well after check out time, and they extended our stay at the room no charge, without our asking, too. Nice to have top of the line GE appliances including washer & dryer. The resort also provides a free mobile phone to use while there...they've thought of everything. You also can use their iPads, iPods. Not a negative by any means -- they could have used sharper knives in the kitchen. Probably ok for most people. (I just have heightened awareness after investing in some Wusthofs.)
Their customer service is top notch. I bought some fresh coconuts and Graciano helped me crack them open to enjoy the meat. The food at the Red Ginger restaurant was probably the best in San Pedro. Things to do: Rent a golf cart and drive all around town. Take the Lamenai Adventure tour (by plane) and climb the Mayan ruins. Snorkel the Barrier Reef. Eat at their sister restaurant, The Blue Water Grill. Have a drink at Palapas over the water.
