Fodor's Expert Review Pelican Beach Resort
Scotchman Town, North End, Dangriga, Stann Creek, Belize
This waterfront hotel on the north end of Dangriga, near the airstrip, is the best the town has to offer. Most rooms are in a two-story colonial-style building with a veranda. Some have porches with sea views. The restaurant has dependable food and service—the french fries are great—and the open-air terrace seating is a delightful spot to enjoy a meal. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. Though there's a pier and small beach area, the water's not always the best for swimming. It's about a half-hour stroll to the center of town. The resort has an annex on Southwater Caye, a beautiful small island, an hour away by boat.
- charming colonial-era main building
- breezy seaside location
- the best lodging in Dangriga
- not the beach of your dreams
