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!

Room tip: beachfront is the way to go!

Our realtor referred us to Pelican Reef for our first trip to Belize/Ambergris Caye. From our initial inquiry to the hotel, Tristian made our visit so effortless. Specific Covid testing requirements were clearly detailed for the arrival to Belize by US passengers and departure Covid requirments for return to the USA. Once we arrived in Belize City Tristian gave details how to catch the commuter flight to Ambergris Airport and scheduled the flights. When we arrived at Ambergris Caye Tristian had the van waiting to take us to the Pelican. The room was very clean, had good A/C, nice kitchen and was well equipped. Breakfasts were delicious. All the staff were very helpful and gracious. They also were vocal about enjoying both their work and employers. My wife and I scheduled refresher scuba courses, fishing trips, dinner reservations and return Covid testing-all through Tristian-he made it too easy!! The beach was beautiful, the water warm and the time delightful thanks to the wonderful facility and staff.

We have traveled extensively and our entire family agreed this is the most beautiful and well run resort we have ever stayed!!! The entire staff at Pelican Reef was friendly and so helpful but of course Tristan was the MVP. His help extended way before we even arrived with his helpful emails and phone call to plan various excursions and answer all of our questions. Once we arrived he made sure we were always well taken care of and provided so many helpful tips about the island. He is definitely one of a kind and true accept to the resort. All of the excursions that were planned were perfect and so enjoyable (snorkeling and scuba adventures, dinner recommendations delicious and enjoyable) and restaurant on location provided healthy and flavorable options when we didn't feel like leaving and/or wanted drinks at the bar (excellent bartender too!!). The resort itself was absolutely beautiful and the cleanest place I have ever seen. Our condo was a 3 bedroom top floor ocean front view and it was perfect (spacious, gorgeous views, nice decor, and so peaceful). The only negative was that it was a little far from the rest of the town which definitely required the use of the golf cart but well worth it in terms of privacy, safety, and beauty. Just get yourself a golf cart!!!
