Booking enquiry

The Phoenix combines high quality in-room and resort amenities with the prime location of being just a few steps away the best shopping, dining, and nightlife that Ambergris Caye has to offer. The location makes it easy for guests to explore the charming town of San Pedro, whilst relaxing in luxury, without the need to take a water taxi or a golf cart ride to and from town.

At the hub of the resort is the two-tiered main pool with an infinity edge, plus a separate lap pool – these pools are saline, and are much gentler on guests’ skin, hair, and eyes than traditional chlorine pools. There is also a pool bar open daily providing food and drink service.

The Red Ginger Restaurant serves gourmet food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Service is available inside the air conditioned main dining room, outside at the restaurant’s garden patio, poolside at the pool bar, or as room service, for the ultimate convenience.

The gorgeous Sol Spa features a wide range of services, which can be enjoyed inside the beautiful air conditioned treatment rooms, inside your condo, or on a your private Caribbean-facing veranda.

A 15 minute walk south is Blue Water Grill is a popular lunch and dinner spot on the beach in San Pedro serving a wide range of Belizean and International cuisine, so something for everyone. Sushi is served on Tuesday and Thursday and we are big fans of the aji poke salad.

A ten minute walk south is our top pick in San Pedro, Wild Mangoes, which serves ‘nuevo latino’ cuisine – Caribbean food infused with spicy latin influences from Cuba, Mexico and Argentina. The rum glazed bacon wrapped shrimp and the plantain crusted tilapia ensure that bookings are absolutely necessary for dinner.

For a truly rustic and authentic Belizean experience, check out El Fogon in San Pedro, where the five or so daily changing dishes are cooked in cast iron pots over an open fire pit. It is located one street down towards the lagoon from the arrivals section of the airstrip, behind a wooden fence.

The Reef is a San Pedro local institution serving fresh fish and seafood cooked in a variety of styles. The coconut shrimp comes highly recommended. Located on ‘middle street’, just ask around.

The Palapa Bar is a fun and friendly ‘over the water’ bar which attracts a good crowd, especially on Sundays. The bar food is tasty (burgers, sandwiches, etc) and you can look out for rays and dolphins in the waters surrounding. Located 1 mile north of San Pedro town, easily reachable by bike or golf cart.

It was everything I wanted – “We went to Belize last minute and found this hotel by chance. We were so happy we did. It was beautiful. The staff was very nice. The bartender would make us drinks and deliver to our room and even went and bought tacos from a different place and delivered them when there kitchen was closed. The rooms were amazing. All the comforts of home plus some. I hope I can get the chance to stay here again!! We visited a few different places on Belize and some were more roughing than others. This part of the trip was like paradise. I can’t get over the view over our rooms. Huge windows overlooking the ocean and their pool. It felt almost like you were outside. One of the coolest places I have stayed at ever!”

San Pedro gem!! – “This hotel is simply sunning. Was there with a large group of friends some two birthday celebrations and our accommodations at The Phoenix Resort were simply divine. We had a three bedroom; 2 bath suite with a full kitchen and HUGE patio that looked out over the pool, property and the ocean. Our room was impeccable, well outfitted, and SUPER clean. It’s literally like a home away from home.  The staff at The Phoenix are among the nicest people on the island. The staff made a cake from scratch for my friend’s birthday and it was probably the best cake I’ve ever had. The staff went out of their way at every turn to make sure our say, and those of the other guests, was the best possible experience. We met some great people and had an amazing stay!”

Great stay at the resort – “The Phoenix has set the bar high for hospitality in the resorts of Belize. From the moment we walked in, we were welcomed by the very sweet staff with drinks and cool towels. Our condo was incredible. We got a two-bedroom, and it was VERY spacious with large, nice bathroom, a washer/dryer and a HUGE kitchen stocked with every utensil, etc., that you can imagine. Our huge patio had a view of the gorgeous pool and even more gorgeous ocean. The pool is great and the views when you’re sitting out at the pool are just unreal. The pool bar is a nice touch as well. Overall, this resort cannot be beat. The hospitality, awesome accommodations and breathtaking views make this place a cut above the rest. I would stay here again, no question”.
