Luxury at the Phoenix Belize
Flashback to Sunday – We really needed a quiet break from it all and wanted to try somewhere new but not go too far away. We have so many Belize resorts to choose from, but I could not think of a better choice than The Phoenix Belize Resort – a luxury resort within walking distance to downtown San Pedro. Checked in a bit after noon and I was super excited to see what our room would look like after having seen the one that Joey Stevens and One Caribbean Weather crew stayed in during San Pedro Lobsterfest.
As we were about to enter our suite and get the tour we got served welcome drinks in complimentary Belikin glasses – a nice souvenir of our stay. They make a super delicious rum punch it had colorful drink umbrellas and bits of ginger in it yum. We are so ready to relax – nothing beats laying in a nice cool room in a big king size bed under a cozy duvet staring at the ocean. Saw kids playing in the water at a nearby dock and watched a kite surfer doing his thing for a while – now that’s my kind of reality tv.
Monday morning – what a way to start off the new work week – both still totally blissed out at the Phoenix. Woke up early and had a nice hot jacuzzi bubble bath – a rare treat in San Pedro. Next came our regular morning iced coffee’s at the dining room table and set up our laptops – Phoenix offers free wifi. Got some work done and decided it was time for more jacuzzi tub – priorities are important.
Around 10:30 we were tidying up and not wanting to but getting ready to go when I got word that we had a 2 pm checkout. How perfect because not long after it started pouring rain so we went back to bed to watch tv and relax – total heaven.
It’s Tuesday morning now and I am back at my desk working away to finish this post and wishing I could go back in time to yesterday or forward to a future stay.
I wanted to leave you with not only some great reviews but also unique things about the The Phoenix Resort that set it apart ….
