My husband and I along with my sister there were 6 of us who stayed in a 3 BR condo facing the ocean. From the time we arrived at the airport all of our needs were taken care of. Our flight from Belize City was arranged by Rhonda who owns Athens Gate along with her husband Joe. Rhonda and Joe (who were from Texas and moved to this beautiful island). are both very nice and seem to enjoy making your trip to their beautiful resort and Ambergris Caye special. Elizar ( all call him "E") who has his office in the swimup bar is the go to guy for any and everything we needed. When we first got there I told him we had left a bag in Belize City. By mid morning the next day my bag was placed up on the bar by "E" fully intact. Everything he took care of for us seemed so effortless to him but was so awesome to us. From arranging for our golf cart which we had in about 15 minites to making suggestions for spa time and good restaraunts. He took care of it all with a sense of ease. All while smiling and mixing us drinks at the beautiful swim - up bar. the grounds were beautiful and spotlessly clean. laying on the beach at night was wonderful. It was so quiet and a wonderful coastal breeze. In the distance you could hear the waves hitting the reef out from the condos. The reef is the second largest in the world next to Australia. Our condo was beautiful and well appointed. Very nice Kitchen all SS appliances and everything you would need to make delicious meals. We basically did a little breakfast items coffee and snacks. On the hugh balcony at night you could see boats and enjoy just sitting and listening to the sea. The town of San Pedro was about a 2 and 1/2 mile trip on golf cart which was a lot of fun singing with the harmonca through the streets. great little shops and restaraunts in town to check out. We esepecially enjoyed Fidos which is a very large Bar restaraunt with good food and drinks and some awesome entertainment. Kelly McGuire and Dusty Barber were amazing and with the flamingo guitars. They just kept playing and the crowd was very pumped. One thing we were very impressed with the people who lived there were so friendly. It seemed like home and we cant wait to go back for a longer stay next time. Joe and Rhonda have some other condos just down the beach that are also very nice Pelican Reef Villas. We walked down several mornings for breakfast where we sat around the beautiful pool facing the beach. We had wonderful breakfast Ruthie and another lady took very good care of us and served us a most delicious breakfast. Ever since we came back we cannot stop thinkink about this beaultiful place with smiling faces that are all so ready and willing to make your stay something you will have fond memories and soooo...We Cant WAIT TO GO BACK!!!
Thanks again to Joe/Rhonda/Elezar and all the wonderful staff at Athens Gate!!
