With jalousie windows and paneled walls, this tropical hideaway seems like it probably hasn't changed since 1970. The individual rooms have air conditioning, which was welcome during sultry September. My room was immaculate, and the bed was comfortable. The week after Labor Day, the place was pretty much deserted. Combined with the professionalism of the staff at the front desk,... More

I've lived in the country of Belize all my life and it took 42 years for me to reach down to Dangriga and enjoy a stay at Pelican Beach Resort. Seems I've been missing out on this little hidden treasure. A bit on the small side but big on charm, this resort was quite charming I must say. Smack on... More

This was our second time staying at Pelican Beach in Dangriga. As usual it was a very pleasant stay. The rooms are comfortable and you have a great view of the sea. I must admit that the food service is slow, so do not visit restaurant while starving. The food is good, but definitely not the best I've had.

Pelican Beach Resort is a dilemma. Their Pelican's Pouch at South Water Cay is a truly world-class resort with unparalleled service and natural environment. Pelican Beach at Dangriga Town however is the total opposite. The rooms are rather run-down and somewhat dingy. The restaurant serves good food but at an excruciatingly slow pace; if you are hungry, you will starve... More

Unfortunately, the owners of this hotel appear to not have an understanding of business to be able to make this property a success. This place is almost the same as it was 25 years ago when I last visited Dangriga but it actually declined. The property is one of the most underutilized of any property I have visited around the...

We come here often and love it! The staff are amazing and the location is fabulous with great views and wildlife. It's within walking distance of the airport and a great stopover before going to any of the cayes or atolls. The one downside is the food service is slow, so be prepared to be on Belizean time.

I have stayed at Pelican Beach some 15 times since 1989, and each stay is better than the last. The helpful, knowledgeable staff tops the list of pluses, and the location, relaxed atmosphere, and dining is not to be matched anywhere else in town. The number of local families having dinner, and local businessmen entertaining clients for lunch, is a... More

The staff is helpful, kind and patient. The food is great and the view from the rooms are spectacular. This is a rustic hotel that is extremely clean. The hotel is located on the beach.

Conveniently located at the foot of the runway of the airport. We stayed here for the night before catching the boat for Off The Wall Dive Center. Room was clean. The attached restaurant was very adequate, and staff very friendly. The room air conditioner seemed to struggle most of the night, but it was nice to have. Hotel accommodations are... More
