La Perla Del Caribe
Ranked #30 of 55 Hotels in San Pedro
Reviewed 15 April 2012

We had a fabulous stay in beautifully appointed Villa Opal, a 5-bedroom villa that was luxurious, and idyllic in it's setting. For peace, quiet and a truly memorable beach vacation I highly recommend La Perla. Excellent restaurants within walking distance. Chef services provided by the 3 sisters were delicious,professional and with enough left overs for 2 meals. Enrique, Toshiba & staff including housekeeping provide service with a smile. Make sure you stock up on groceries if you are planning to cook because town is 6 miles away by boat. We are a family of divers and have travelled all over the world...we would gladly come back to Villa Opal!

Loved our vacation. Enrique and his staff made our stay at La Perla perfect. Professional, friendly, clean and safe accommodations. All excursions were handled and we were thrilled with the choices that were made on our behalf. When our 6 year old fell Enrique orchestrated our journey into town and the great doctor that we ended up seeing. Can't wait to go back!!

We had booked a week's vacation at a private rental house elsewhere on the island. That other rental house turned out to be a disaster! That first night, I started calling around, hoping to find another option. Given that we were a party of 9 (2 adults, 3 children under age 12, and both sets of grandparents!) traveling together, I was sure we were in trouble. Man, was I wrong! We got very lucky.

The staff at La Perla not only was sympathetic to our situation, but they were able to move some things around to open up Villa Amethyst for the remainder of our stay. They took care of everything - the boat to come pick us up, all the luggage, an ice chest so our refrigerated groceries wouldn't spoil during the move, etc. I thought the move would be a big pain, but they made it easy.

Enrique, Amanda, Toshiva, Jose, and Marco took great care of us during our stay. My mother-in-law had become quite ill that first day before we moved to La Perla. The whole staff went above and beyond in watching out for her. They tracked down the best doctor on the island for a house visit at 9 o'clock at night! (Dr. Giovanni Solorzano of the San Carlos Medical Clinic is wonderful.) They secured a big oxygen tank for her to use. Toshiva and Jose even accompanied me into San Pedro late that night to borrow a special regulator from the hyperbaric chamber facility. Even as my mother-in-law improved as the week went on, they continued to check in on her and see if there was anything else they could do to help.

The resort facility itself is a perfect setting. Check out this picture at "http://ambergriscaye.com/maps/images/Airshots%20Web%20Bridge%20North/43%20la%20perla.jpg" for a great aerial view of the complex. The Villa Amethyst is just to the right of the one labeled "Villa Ruby". The Amethyst is a four bedroom, which worked great for us. The ground floor is a big open room with three beds and a TV. On the main (second) floor is the kitchen, living area, and two huge bedroom suites. The entire top (third) floor is an even larger bedroom suite with two private balconies off to each side.

The view from the big front porch on the main floor is incredible. It was exactly what you'd imagine and hope such a view would be. What amazed me even more was how I could stand in the shower on the top floor and have two postcard-perfect views - one out the front window but also one out the back window onto a giant marshland landscape that reminded me of something you'd see in certain parts of the Carolina coast.

Our kids loved the pool and its unique features and nooks and crannies. They also loved exploring around the property, hiding behind palm trees, and tracking the various iguanas that live there. We kayaked out to the barrier reef. We snorkeled. We swam with the sharks and manta rays in Shark Alley. We zip-lined in the rainforest. We went tubing thru the cave tunnels. We went reef fishing. The kids (and adults!) had a blast on each trip.

Everyone should know that there's no restaurant nor bar at La Perla. There are multiple restaurants less than a 10 minute walk down the beach. We went another route, though. We hired chefs to cook dinner in the villa each night. They were incredible and made enough great food each night that we happily ate left-overs for lunch the next day. We highly recommend using these sister-chefs. You can view a cookbook they self-published at "http://www.yourbook.com/DisplayArea/IP25869-08.pdf". I think you can also reach them at ChefsForHireBelize@gmail.com. (Thanks ladies!)

Our trip to Belize started out poorly, but the folks at La Perla saved us. By the time we left, all of us were convinced that fate had smiled on us that week. Thank you everyone at La Perla for a great week!

Just a wonderful place to chill out...the villa exceeded the website photos and our expectations. Quiet and uncrowded but made many short term acquaintances with other folks at restaurants, tours and especially on the water taxis. Everyone seemed comfortable with talking with everyone else. Our host Enrique made everything so easy and smooth. No worries about minor issues that always seem to be a bit stressful on vacation.

Room Tip: The Saphire was perfect for our party of two couples.

This place is fantastic. The accomodations are superb and the staff bends over backwards to make sure your stay is a pleasant and uneventful. Enrique was extremely helpful in arranging tours and trips, while facillitating our many requests. Evan (Security) and Toshiba were indispensible when we had a minor problem that required some maintenance. The villas and surrounding property are well kept and we felt at ease immediately upon arrival.
