San Pedro Holiday Hotel

Your Adventure Destination

A full service resort in the heart of San Pedro, built and owned by Celi McCorkle, an island native, the hotel sits at the intersection of most happening things on the island. I can't think of anyone who visits Ambergris Caye who doesn't stroll the sand streets of San Pedro in the evenings. And when you stroll through San Pedro, you come to know the Holiday Hotel, its wonderful barbecues, and Celi's Restaurant. The hotel is a gorgeous colonial structure, best seen from the beach.

A three story hotel, it commands center stage in San Pedro. The seafront rooms are comfortably cooled with air conditioning and ceiling fans. You may choose to do without the AC and let the cooling trade winds add their romance to your stay.

The Holiday Hotel mounts a determined campaign to make your visit enjoyable.  There is a wonderful restaurant, Celi's, in the rear of the hotel. It combines dining indoors with the outdoors. You can sample their excellent menu inside,  or choose to dine in a screened porch, right on the sand. There you can watch the waves, water and people while you enjoy the best food on the island. There's something culturally sinfully delicious about wiggling your toes in the white coral sand while enjoying a wonderful elegant meal served on a crisp linen tablecloth. What, you're still wearing shoes?

The hotel also houses the Sea Gal Boutique, a beautiful lounge with big screen TV, and best of all, a Wednesday night barbecue right on their beach. Live music and spicy barbecue draws people from all over the island, and everyone's invited.

Celi's Deli is adjacent to the hotel, and open 6am to 6pm. Here you can find sandwiches, fresh juices and local delicacies. This can be a life saver if you're an early riser out saying hello to the beach at dawn.

You'll meet Kim when you come to the Holiday Hotel, and be sure to ask her what's best on the menu. She has a musical lilt to her voice that makes it hard to concentrate on what she's saying. I catch myself just listening to the sound of it. She is manager of the hotel and a walking encyclopedia to the people and the culture.

Kim and her staff can arrange everything that can be done on this island. They've been doing it longer than anyone. Between Celi and Kim, they know, or are related to everyone on Ambergris Caye! They can arrange your excursions, dives, tours of the mainland and the Maya ruins, everything!

Editor's note- when I flew in the second time to Ambergris Caye, I was tired and cranky - I never look like those smiling people in the ads - I arrived in Goldson International Airport in Belize City, but hadn't bothered to buy a ticket on Tropic or Island Air for the flight to Ambergris Caye. I had called to the Holiday the day before leaving and made sure I had a room for the first night.  At the Tropic airline counter I found that Kim had a ticket waiting for me, as well as a ride from the island airport to the hotel- they really know what service is - amcneill.

The hotel has a dive shop right on it's pier, so you're just a few steps away from the most exciting diving in the world. Whether you scuba or snorkel, everything you need is right here, including courses for dive certification.
