Resort was very clean and well kept. From the concierge (Tristian super helpful) to the bar and restaurant, all professional and nice. Only pier access to water, shallow and watch for coral. Small pool and swim up bar. Good breakfast and lunch. Full kitchen and washer/dryer nice. They can handle all transfers and golf cart rental if needed. Small mini mart close by for water, beer, sunscreen, milk, snacks etc. Larger market 5-8 min cart ride for more grocery options.

Hotel's Favourite
This was our third time staying at Pelican Reef as it has been amazing each and every time. The staff is always extremely attentive and nice. We loved Kai, Tristain, Enrique and Shamir, always friendly and very helpful! It is one of the few places that has a swim up bar and the renovations they've made are awesome, made an already amazing view even better. One of my favorite things is their dock. It is relaxing and convenient for an afternoon nap or a float in the water. Also, some of the excursions will pick you up right at the dock. We always tell friends, family and even strangers that they have to visit Ambergris Caye and will forever love staying at Pelican Reef Villas. We look forward to visiting for many years to come.

We stayed 4 nights at Pelican reef, and enjoyed it immensely! The staff is wonderful starting with Tristan who basically runs the place! He was wonderful communicating before our arrival, organizing our flight from Belize city and pickup from the airport. When we finally met it was like meeting an old friend! Tristan also arranged golf cart rental for us ($220 for 4 days delivered to the hotel), as well as made restaurant and tour reservations for us. Tristan is there 7 days a week and is a kind soul and hard worker as well as being a wealth of information! The 2 bartenders are also wonderful, Naeim and Kai. They too work 7 days a week and are there each morning at 6 am to serve coffee and breakfast. Kai even met us one night at a local spot (the Truck stop) with his wife and daughter. Such sweet and generous people. Steve, one of the property managers was great too. The room was spacious and very well equipped with great AC. The pool is clean and beautiful and refreshing from the heat. The beach out front is lovely and the sargassum was not an issue at all. There is no water entry from the beach as it is a sea wall, but my hubby swam at the end of the pier while I lounged on a hammock. Breakfast was fantastic each day! It is a small resort 22 rooms at the south end of town, about a 20 minute golf cart ride to the center of town. Definitely recommend doing a snorkel tour and make sure to spend a day at secret beach! Overall, I would highly recommend this place!!

Beautiful views, clean accommodations and amazing staff!!!!!! The favorite word that you see everywhere is UnBelizeable and it is sooooo true for Pelican Reef Villas. The beachfront villa was spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff could not be more accommodating. Perfect weather only made the stay more memorable. My hat is off to Tristian, Marilyn, Kai & Naim – they bend over backwards to make sure everything is perfect. Arrangements for snorkeling, scuba diving, deep sea fishing and more can all be arranged for your Belize adventure by this very efficient staff. I truly hope that upper management appreciates all the long hours and hard work you all do. You made our stay very memorable and we hope to come back again. Pelican Villas is located south of the town of San Pedro and is a short golf cart ride from many excellent restaurants.

PRVs are privately owned condos with a central bar, pool, and beach that are managed by a central staff. The beachfront condo we stayed in was nicely appointed, air-conditioned, clean and had an amazing view of the water. It was also very quiet despite being right next to the pool and bar. On site, you can use bikes, paddleboards, kayaks and games with no additional charge and the staff went above and beyond to make sure my family was able to do whatever activity or excursion we wanted. We also were able to rent a golf cart on site and have it delivered to the resort. I would definitely get a cart as taxis in and out of town can add up. As the map will show, this resort is 2 odd miles south of San Pedro and we enjoyed not being in the hustle and bustle. Getting into town was easy with our cart and the staff had good recs on where to eat. Some reviewers mentioned that the road is not paved and this is true but I think it all adds to the experience of feeling removed from town. The real stars of PRVs is the staff. Tristian, Marilyn, Kai and Nahim are kind, helpful, proactive, hard-working, super friendly and professional. Their service would be 10-star if that was a thing. I mentioned that it was my daughter's birthday before we arrived and on the actual day, while we were out, they festively decorated her room and even baked a cake. I can 't wait to go back and stay here again!
