While listening to the pool's trickling turquoise waterfall, it's easy to believe you've stumbled upon a hidden tropical treasure; however, the faux cave is a swim-up bar, and Pelican Reef is only a little south (2½ mi or 4 km) of San Pedro's bustle. Such sweet subterfuges have made this condotel one of the most popular on the island. Large alabaster three-story buildings with butter-yellow trim house the 24 two-bedroom and three-bedroom units. The very spacious units
are tastefully decorated, with fully equipped kitchens, mahogany cabinets, granite countertops, and plush sleigh beds. Oceanfront unit have stunning views. The same owners operate Athens Gate, a 12-unit condotel of similar quality nearby that can be booked through Pelican Reef.
