"Great Getaway Especially for Snorkelers and Scuba"
This resort is wonderful. The two bedroom villa was on the beach and everything worked just fine. Clean sheets, great towels, pillows, kitchen utensils, etc. You will be shuttled back and forth to town via water taxi--the hotels, scuba crew, etc-picked you up on the dock, and about 5-7 minute ride to San Pedro downtown. The downtown area is three streets, with a number of small grocery stores; excellent baked goods!!!. The dining was cheaper and much much better in San Pedro. Blue Water, Ramon's (the burritos and the fish chowder, outrageous), and Mango restaurants were all very very good and sensibly priced. All on the beach.
Three places were within walking distance from the Villa. All ok, not special, and overpriced compared to downtown. Weirdly, they all served Maxwell House rather then Belize coffee--to be had in a coffee shop downtown. Buy beans and make it yourself.
The support team at the La Perla (Enrique and Sergio (call me "Toshiba")) were some of the nicest people, ever. Genuinely polite, helpful. We asked for scuba recommendations, and they had Ramon's Dive Shop pick us up. Ramon's is the full boat, multi-layered scuba shop, with big to little boats, and experienced and very very safe dive masters. They managed 1 hour excursions and 12 hour trips to the Blue Hole, the latter of which was a trip of a lifetime, seamlessly and without any mishaps. Best diving we have seen anywhere.
