  • Ambergris Caye is Beautiful!

    "The Palm House is a beautiful house located right on the beach. The house itself was perfect for us. The main floor of the house has 2 master bedrooms that are identical and are located on opposite sides of the house. There is also a bedroom in the basement, but the bathroom for this room is at the top of the stairs away from the bedroom, so not a true master. The guest house is located inside the house (not a separate structure), but has a separate entrance. The laundry is outside. The property is right next to a public playground with beach / pier access. There were people at the playground almost all the time, and it was more crowded on the weekend. I can't say that it bothered us all that much, but it's the type of information I would like to have before renting. The property does not have its own pier. Overall, the house and property met out needs. However, there are a points of improvement that I would offer: 1. Pelican Reef Villas manages the property. I never had contact with the actual owners. We rented the property approximately 8 months in advance of our stay. The correspondence with the management of Palm House started off very well and the lady that was working with us was nice, informative and timely when answering my questions. However, about a month before arrived, I noticed that she was no longer responding to me and I had to send my questions 2-3 times via email before I would get a very short, curt response. There was no explanation for the change in contact, no apologies for lack of response, nothing. I had to get rude and demand some answers a week before we arrived because I was getting nowhere - and it was about information such as flight confirmation and pickup from the airport. I was extremely disappointed and felt uncomfortable about the arrival. Not ideal for the price. 2. Typically, VRBO properties have a book or some kind of information sheet about the house - where things are located, processes for trash, etc. There is not anything like this in the house. I'm assuming they want you to rely on Pelican Reef Villas but that is not our style. We rent the house and like to know how to operate it. 3. The air conditioner in the living room does not work well at all. 4. They list prices for activities on their site. Be aware that these prices may change without notice so ask prior to your stay if you would like to know the exact cost. I would probably book my own activities if I were returning."

  • Excellent place to stay on Ambergris Caye

    "After reading all of the excellent reviews I chose Athens Gate as the place to stay for our first trip to Belize. Man was that a good call! My wife and I along with another couple stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit on the 4th floor. No elevator, but the stairs were a good work out. The units are right on the beach, with large living and dining areas and a large master suite. The second bedroom was quite small, but adequate for our group. The lanai overlooking the pool and Caribbean was huge. The staff was very friendly and took care of everything we needed. Special thanks to E for setting up our snorkeling trip (on the Lady Leslie catamaran - a must do excursion if you go to Ambergris Caye) , arranging a golf car rental and cabs for us, and for turning us on to Sushi night at the Blue Water Grill on the beach in San Pedro. Soto, the bar tender (and personal chef) provided the best service ever, especially the lobster, fish and vegetable dinner grilled to perfection. Setting up the reservation and all transfers required to get to Athens Gate was a breeze thanks to Lori. She took care of all the details for us. We took a snorkeling trip with Lady Leslie Tours to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve at the Reef, Shark and Sting Ray Alley and Caye Caulker. Martin Leslie and his sons are excellent hosts, and snorkeling guides. Best boat ride ever and I will do this trip every time I come back to Belize. The restaurant across the street from Athens Gate has good food and you have to try the lobster fajitas. There is a small market a couple of blocks away and larger grocery stores on the south side of San Pedro. I would definitely stay at Athens Gate again and recommend it to friends and family."

  • Better than expected!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I did a lot of research before I booked with LaPerla, we were 2 families totaling 10 people ages 17 to 50, we stayed in 5 bedroom Pearl. This has got to be the best place there! Perfect setting and location, I emailed a head and asked that beer and certain amenities be in the house upon arrival and they were. There was always someone available if you had any questions or needs. Now that the road is so well developed the distance from town was not an issue. This was a dream vacation with a blended family. Our next adventure I would like to go somewhere other than Belize (have been 3 times) but I have yet to find a location and comfort that this place provided us, I cannot say enough about this place! Privacy, amazing pool, beautiful location, complete package!"

  • Location, Comfort, Amenities, Price

    "Family of 6 adults just returned from a lovely 1 week stay. Have been to Ambergris before and might have returned to former resort but this time needed a 3 bedroom, and wanted to be within walking distance to San Pedro. The Landings provided this and more. Location: close to town, grocery store, beach bar/restaurants. Comfort: Good floor plan, nice beds, plenty of towels, Jacuzzi tub, washer/dryer. TV with a gazillion channels. My only negative is the only patio with furniture is off the master bathroom. Amenities: well equipped kitchen, arrival/departure pick-ups, 3 pools, sandy ocean area off pier to swim (we played Frisbee), cell phone I can not say enough for managers Kimberley and Chad. Friendly, helpful and professional. We had no problems but they were on site every day overseeing properties."
