One of Ambergris Caye oldest hotel, The Holiday Hotel, is undergoing major renovation. The facelift will however, keep the old colonial looks and charm envisioned since its construction in the mid 1960's. The San Pedro Holiday Hotel opened its doors on June 15, 1965. As San Pedro's first hotel, it had five small rooms, one cold water shower, one bathroom with plumbing and four full hours of electricity. At $10US, you would get accommodations, three meals a day and your laundry done.

Running her hotel under the fundamental principle of marketing: "Good marketing requires you to first identify your clients' needs before you can appeal, attract and satisfy those needs and in the process profit from it." Celi McCorkle has been able to run a continuously successful business for over 45 years.

Now Celi is passing down most of the reigns of management to her daughter, Lisa McCorkle Guerrero. Lisa is a successful businesswoman in her own right: Oasis Del Caribe and Train Station Fitness Center being two of her business accomplishments. With the new responsibility of an island icon in her hands, she has undertaken the task of renovating and breathing new life into the Holiday Hotel.

The San Pedro Sun spoke with Lisa to get some insight on the changes. "We're giving it a complete facelift. From the outside, the exterior of the buildings, we're changing it into like a nautical theme. So a lot of it will be the blue and the white with curtains that will fall on the deck. We want to maintain a boutique-hotel kind of feel, quaint but with finer little niches. It was time for a reno - it's been so many years that we did anything drastic to the place," stated Lisa.
