Reviews for La Perla del Caribe
We just returned from Ambergris Caye and La Perla Del Caribe, specifically Villa Topaz. While the surroundings were peaceful, the Villa is in pretty rough shape. It was in no way clean, to the reasonable person's standards. If you are ok with random hairs in your shower and in your bath towels.. then you won't have a problem. I would have liked for the kitchen utensils to have been useable, but a lot of them were just disgustingly dirty. We stayed on the upper floor/master suite and while the ac was not an adequate size for the space it did remain pretty cool. They did have purified water in the room, as in a 5 gallon jug dispenser. We were never told whether the tap water was "ok", but never took chances We brushed our teeth with bottled water. The other resort we stayed in beforehand, we were told that the water was fine upon check in, but not here. You would think that if you rented an entire villa on the beach for vacation, certain things would be provided, like maybe beach towels? We inquired about this at the front office with Rosemary and she basically put it off on with the owners or housekeeping. It was rather awkward, and frustrating. All of this to say, the location is beautiful, we did enjoy use of the pool, and the ocean kayaks, but would think twice about renting at La Perla again. Villa Topaz needs work!

This was my first time to Belize and I would say it's was my best vacation ever! The La Perla was a great location. Very Belizean with decorative tile and beautiful dark wood. The service was superb. We lucked out and were the only people staying during the time, so we had it all to our selves. Beds are hard, but other than that we thoroughly enjoyed this property.
We were super excited to arrive at la Perla. We had been in email contact with a lady at the resort who then met us at the jetty. She failed to welcome us in any way... she simply marched us to our villa, pointed at the info book inside and left... no warmth, no chat.... nothing. Very underwhelming. The villa itself (amber) was ok. Spacious. The kitchen equipment was old and a lot of it, unusable. There was no oven ware at all. The beds were incredibly uncomfortable and the bedding old and scruffy. The bathrooms were ok but the curtains did not cover the windows properly and we were overlooked by another villa which was not ideal! The villa was however clean. On our last day the cleaners left the villa unlocked which is highly unprofessional. The resort itself was tidy and clean . The pool area was tired and uninviting. We hired a golf buggy for the week. Agreed in advance a charge of 300 dollars. Upon arrival we were told it would be 600... they only agreed our price upon showing the email proof of quote. The buggy itself was old and broke down 3 times. Very frustrating. We were looking forward to long walks along the beaches which are described so beautifully in the resort info. In reality the beaches were disgusting. Vile. Every stretch was deep in litter.... no exaggeration .... even piles of bin bags that have been dumped. Our bit of beach in front of the villa was clean but one metre along the rubbish begins and it does not stop. No chance of a pleasant meander along the coast. This is not a luxury resort. The people working there have lost interest and don't seem to want people there. Avoid.
We rented 2 villas. A 2 bed and a 5 bed. Both were very nice. Staff was wonderful. Provided bottled water and ice whenever needed. Location was perfect. Pool was nice. Walking distance to several great restaurants.

The houses at La Perla are about a 20 minute golf cart or water taxi ride from San Pedro. Far enough so that there's no traffic around the complex, it's only guests. Last Perla is about 7 individually owned castitas of different sizes, grouped around a common shared Pool, with one management company and an office on site. There is no restaurant or gift shop, but most days Toshiba the maintenance supervisor is on site to help out and answer questions. The pool area was always well maintained and never crowded. There is also beach frontage and a pier, but some sea grass that requires raking. The beach is OK. We rented the Sapphire, 3 bedroom unit (5 day minimum), and it was huge! Probably 4k sq ft! It was plenty of space for a group of 8. Beach level was Grandpa's suite, with a bedroom, TV room and 2 bathrooms. The Main level had a full kitchen, great room and table that sat 10. Also office, full bedroom and bathroom as well as 3 verandas. Top level was the master suite with full bath and room top access. The house was nicely decorated and felt comfortable. Staff came by most days to tidy up and freshen the linens. We arranged for groceries to be stocked through Mata Grocery, a 5 minute cart ride away. Convenient, but not the best prices (everything is a bit pricey since it's an island) they carry cinnamon bread from a local bakery that's out of this world! We really enjoyed La Perla. Town was too busy for us, we liked being farther away. And there are a bunch of markets and restaurants along the way. We went back and forth most days, depending on activities.
