“Simpy Fantastic”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

The Pelican Reef Villas Resort is spectacular. The friendliness and positive attitude of the personnel is second to none. This is a 5 star operation through and through. From the moment we were greeted at the pier by Terri, who proved to be able to work her magic and accomplish miracles and who never runs out of enthusiasm and will answer even the most mundane questions over and over, we were happy. The bartender was friendly and service oriented, the waiter William was over the top welcoming and accommodating, the room/maid service was perfect. Everything worked, our suite was exquisitely furnished and the beach was manicured to a degree of perfection. We loved our visits to town and to the various grocery stores on the bikes provided by the Resort. The town provided great opportunities for interesting and fine dining. The coup de grace for us was finding that the restaurants were able to accommodate our dietary need for Gluten Free options. One fantastic piece of advice from Terri that we followed was to work with Carlos when we needed to get a cab to and from town or anywhere else on Ambergris Caye. Carlos was there for us 24 hours a day and sometimes on short notice. He was friendly, trustworthy and reliable and obviously a person of integrity. In short….the Pelican Reef personnel and service made our stay in Ambergris Caye, Belize spectacular.

We had a great experience at Pelican Reef! Highly recommend for a romantic getaway or trip with friends. The resort is about 2 miles from the town of San Pedro, but it's an easy bike or golf cart ride into town. Absolutely gorgeous beach & great staff. Food & drinks good, breakfast included but not an all-inclusive resort. We'll definetly be back!

Pelican Reef is basically condominums with hotel service (great service). The units are large and ours was nicely furnished. The view from the pool and swim-up bar is incredible. It felt like our own private resort. It is a little further from town than some of the other hotels and the ride is a bumpy one, but that also means you have a much more private setting while at the hotel.

Room Tip: If you want a view, you need to select a beachfront unit, not a pool/beach view.

Our family of 4 just stayed at Pelican Reef on Amergris Caye for 4 nights. I had originally booked a 3 bedroom, garden view condo, but when we arrived Karol had upgraded us to a 3 bedroom/3 bath gorgeous ocean view condo. Our 2 teenagers loved having their own bedroom and gorgeous bathroom to themselves! The staff is so friendly and helpful! The complimentary breakfast was fantastic, as well as the lunches available for a reasonable charge! The beach is beautiful, but plan on sunning in the morning since the afternoon is shaded, which was perfect to relax with a good book in the cool ocean breezes in the afternoon! I would recommend bringing your own snorkeling gear, however. We did not, and wish we had.

Our family of 8 just stayed here for 9 nights. We could not have been happier with our stay at Pelican Reef. We have stayed other places on the island in the past, and I promise you that NOTHING else on the island compares to Pelican Reef in staff, location, amenities, value, beauty and most of all---the beach!

The food is outstanding, the service is wonderful, the condos are spacious, clean and very nice. The pool is a good size, very clean, and deep enough to actually swim in!

It is quite a way out of town (a 15-20 minute taxi/golf cart ride). This is a good thing if you want to stay out of the hustle of San Pedro, which is what we prefer to do. Pelican Reef will feed you a delicious breakfast, you can cook your own lunch or order from their restaurant, and then take a taxi into town for dinner. Trips and excursions will pick you up at the dock, so there really is no need to rent a golf cart.

Free bikes and kayaks are a plus, and there is some great snorkeling right underneath their dock! We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: The beachfront rooms have great views, but if you are like us, this place is so great that you don...

Great place. GREAT! Breakfast was delicious, the people were friendly and accommodating, and the facility was immaculate. Terri, Karol, Ruth, Will...everyone was wonderful. Thank you to all for making our stay great...in spite of some rainy days. The golf cart was a blast and we used the HECK out of it! Highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Pelican Reef after a friend suggested it following their magical time at the resort. The resort and the staff far exceeded any expectation I could have had. Our room was spacious, impecably clean, and had the most stunning view of the ocean. The resort was peaceful and so perfectly maintained that I don't think a single piece of seaweed ever rested on the beach for more than a few minutes, making access to the water easy. Beyond the perfect grounds, the staff could not have been more accomodating and kind - truly some of the best people I've met while traveling. Karol, Terri, and Ruth were there to great you with a smile every single day and help to arrange any activity you had interest in. By the end of the trip they were more like our friends, which made it even harder to leave paradise. We will be back one day (hopefully soon) and we will stay at Pelican Reef, only this time we will bring friends!

Room Tip: It is worth spending the extra money to have the beach view. We sat and had breakfast on our balcon...
