INCREDIBLE FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from an amazing stay at the Blue Dolphin! Brought the whole family, 6 adults and 5 kids ages 3, 3, 6, 7, 8 -- perfect house for the group! Everyone had more than enough space and the choice of pool or beach kept everyone entertained! Armando met us at the airstrip and we shopped at SuperBuy and Greenhouse -- not too hard to find everything we needed in 30 minutes or so -- figure we paid 1/2 of what the provisioning companies wanted. We did Ladie Leslie snorkeling and Caye Caulker adventure -- highly recommend. Also did Seaduced trip to the Lamanai -- long day but was a highlight of the trip. Rented golf carts - not sure they were necessary, the road is very rough and we had 3 flat tires in 8 days - water taxi probably would have worked just as well - but they were fun and gave us freedom to run to the store and bars. Thank you Dr. Mark, Joan, Gloria and Armando! Gloria is an excellent cook - Chicken Enchilada's were ready when we arrived! Already missing the Bilikin and Rum Punch!

Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect for the 9 of us that spent a week at the Blue Dolphin. There was plenty of room for everyone to do what they wanted to. Gloria and Armando were easily accessible when needed and immediately attended to our needs. We caught fish one day and Gloria prepared the fish for us like a gourmet chef would. Dr. Mark was an amazing host. He made sure our excursions were booked and the golf carts were at the house when we arrived. Everything he recommended was exceptional! The catamaran is a must. We met so many wonderful and friendly people that it makes me wish to be in Belize. Amazing place, amazing accommodations!

Blue Dolphin & L'il Dolphin - Paradise

  • 5 of 5

There were 14 of us - 7 couples - age range 45 - 72 - it was wonderful. The house easily accommodated all of us comfortably. The upstairs/downstairs bath & bedroom accommodations in Blue Dolphin were perfect -- same for Li'l - Gloria & Armando took great care of the house and were responsive to all of our questions. It was easy to get to know the city, learn the markets and water taxi systems - roads are pretty primitive so we used water taxis most of the time - very easy -- they come quickly when you call and sometimes we just stood @ the pier and hailed them down. The fishing and snorkeling was great -- some of the best snorkeling we've ever experienced. Mark & Joan were easy to work with in advance and very informative -- they were quick responders and very cordial always. It was a wonderful experience!!!!! Go there!!!

Blue Dolphin Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Dr Mark & Joan,

Our trip was wonderful as was your home. It was the perfect place for our large family to stay and enjoy the paradise. We enjoyed our time around the pool, walking down the beach to other facilities, golf carting into town and both tours that we participated in. Gloria and Armando were very accommodating as well even though we did not ask anything extra from them. Our son loves to cook so he spent a few nights at the grill, ordered pizza one night and ventured out on the others.

We appreciate how helpful you were in booking tours and helping to set us up with information during our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and are grateful we found your lovely home.

A really great house for large family/friends gathering

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly wonderful. We had a group of 20 (10 in the main house, 4 in the Lil' Dolphin, and others at nearby resorts) here for our wedding week. It was a great place to entertain, with lots of room inside and especially poolside. I'd say the listing is accurate, the house is in nice condition and is well maintained. Others have mentioned the slippery tile around the pool - I have to agree, that part of the house was not well thought out - the owners applied some non-skid coatings to some of the pool deck but a more would be better.

Armando and Gloria (the caretakers) were great - always quick to reply when we needed help or guidance. Make sure you ask Armando to prepare a couple coconuts for you when you arrive - the landscaping is full of them and they are great right off the trees (dump a little rum, limejuice and ice inside, even better).

We've been home a little over a week now....just can't get this place out of our heads! We ant to go back!
