Perfection on the Beach
Reviewed on Wednesday, October 4, 2017
Villa Emerald is part of La Perla, a private villa enclave. I think this is the best villa. Very private, completely updated, and right on the beach, just north of busy San Pedro but convenient to everything. Everything you need. Water taxi is just a few feet away, taking you anywhere on Ambergris Caye. Villa sleeps six, all beds are a dream with great comforters, state of art air conditioning (trust me you want this), bathrooms are huge. Everything you need, great kitchen, wifi, flat screen cable TV, huge great room to congregate while watching the ocean. Fantastic pool is literally just a few steps away from deck. Great restaurants just a beach walk away. And great bars! Coming back as soon as I can! My husband had his best vacation ever!
We loved having you Traveler from Denver! Come back soon.
Villa Emerald is Fantastic

I had the opportunity to stay at Villa Emerald, located at La Perla, for 7 nights in early October 2017. To say my stay was satisfactory is an understatement. Villa Emerald was the perfect lodging experience for my trip. The villa has an excellent beach front view and is 100 steps away from the nearest dock to catch a water taxi to take you to San Pedro or any location you wish along the coast of Ambergris Caye. The villa has two bedrooms that can accommodate 6. Each bedroom as a very spacious full bathroom. Each bedroom has its own AC unit and the living room / kitchen has two AC units and they do a great job at keeping the entire house cool and comfortable. The kitchen is fully loaded, you will be able to cook anything you want. The Villa also has its own Laundry room with a washer and dryer. I really enjoyed my stay at La Perla, the location is excellent and private. You are only 15 steps away from the beach and are within walking distance of great restaurants. You will not be disappointing with your stay at Villa Emerald.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us at La Perla. Please tell your friends about us!

We were two couples in this spacious and newly renovated 2 bedroom, beachfront villa. We went diving and then kicked back on the expansive deck while a chef prepared a meal for us. The concierge organized a masseuse to come to the villa as well. We loved our entire stay at La Perla and may come back next year.
Fantastic beach front accomodation!

I stayed at La Perla, specifically Villa Emerald in June.
There are so many things to appreciate about La Perla. Wonderful restaurants are within walking distance. The grounds of La Perla are manicured daily, and throughout the day, including the beach front (walking up and down the beach, this isn’t the case at other properties). The swimming pool is wonderful, with easy access due to its central location to the Villa’s. Accessing the water taxi is easy, as it is a short walk to the pier, where there is a covered seating area. Wonderful restaurants are within walking distance, Portofino’s to the north and Matachica’s and Rojo’s to the south. As a Scuba Diver, we ate breakfast and lunch at The Dive Bar, which is a short water taxi ride away.
The accommodations of Villa Emerald were perfect. The best part of Villa Emerald is its commanding view of the ocean, as it sits 25 feet from the ocean front. The house offers a covered outdoor seating area facing the ocean off each of its two bedrooms, as well as an expansive wood deck on the front with comfortable lounge chairs and an outdoor table with bench seating. The house itself has a large central room perfect for serving as the family gathering place, including a large built in table that we gathered around for our morning coffee or for dinner (when we ate in). The room has been updated with antique furniture which gives the room a very comfortable, Caribbean feel. The kitchen is furnished with a full-sized refrigerator, more than large enough to accommodate our party of 4 for a week. In addition, it has an oven and stove top, microwave and dishwasher, all providing the convenience of home. The master suite is expansive, and well decorated. The guest room is also large, and has 2 queen size beds. Both the master and guest bathrooms are large. Both rooms offered plenty of closet space and drawers. Since it gets warm in Belize, some would say hot, Emerald has 4 (apparently new) AC units to maximize our comfort. One in each bedroom and two in the central room!
I can’t imagine a better location and a better home, as it checked every box on our vacation home wish list! I will definitely return!
Thank you Greg, we would love to have you back!

The Emerald villa at La Perla del Caribe is one of the most beautiful properties I've ever had the privilege at which to stay. From the massive deck where we spent the majority of our time, to the well-equipped kitchen, and the beautiful master bathroom, my guests and I were nothing but pleased with the villa. We made good use of the pool, the hammocks, and the beach. Rosemary was extremely helpful from the moment I made the reservation, helping me book the golf cart and the snorkeling/fishing excursions. The property is not close San Pedro; however, we were looking for something more private/quiet and there were several restaurants within either walking or golf cart distance. Plus, catching the water taxi into San Pedro is easy. I would recommend this property to anyone traveling to Ambergris Caye and I will definitely be returning.

Beautiful 2 bedroom home on the beach. Pool nearby. Kitchen with all the essentials and make sure to get groceries delivered before you arrive or pick them up in town on the way. Several nice restaurants within ten minute walk on the beach.

Accommodations, staff, & service is quite fantastic. Exceptional in every way, if you communicate your needs Ana and the rest of the staff go out of their way to make your stay everything you expect. Second visit after 8 years and I cant wait to get back.
