The Phoenix Resort

Rated #1 Hotel in the World by TripAdvisor's Traveler's Choice

The Tourism Industry in Belize has much to be proud of this early in the year. TripAdvisor® has released their Travelers’ Choice Top Lists for 2012 and Belize’s performance has been outstanding. Taking the top slot is The Phoenix Resort in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye which was named #1 of the top 25 Hotels in the World. That’s right, WORLD. Belize has two resorts in this list, with Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort taking the #3 spot.

We spoke to the Managers at The Phoenix, who were very thankful for the honor. “We are grateful to be recognized by our guests and TripAdvisor®. We want to thank our many guests for their feedback and support and our amazing staff, whose terrific customer service led to this award. We’re honored to be in such great company with other resorts in the country whom we admire and respect, and we look forward to the additional exposure this award will bring to Belize,” stated Mark Maggiotto and Stacy Chesnick.

Another island hotel that received top honors was Xanadu Resort, which was named #3 in the top 25 Hotels in Central and South America. In that same list, Belize took 11 spots, with The Phoenix at #1, Hamanasi at #2, Coco Plum Caye Resort at #5, Turneffe Island Resort #7, Victoria House #10, Belcampo Lodge #13, Las Terrazas #20, Chaa Creek #23, Matachica Beach Resort #24, and Grand Caribe #25. San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize, was named one of the Top 25 destinations in Central and South America, and has the honor of being in the Top 10 beaches in Central and South America as well.

With Tourism being Belize’s #1 industry, these recognitions are welcomed. Certainly, Belize has a lot to offer, from North to South, East to West, with beaches, jungle, ruins, rivers, caves, and a great variety of cultures. The San Pedro Sun has been proudly promoting the wonders of the jewel through its Visitor’s Guide, including features on both The Phoenix and Xanadu – with both resorts having made a lasting impression. It seems that Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret is not a secret anymore! Congratulations to ALL the honorees!
