THE VIEW:

The view is outstanding! From the veranda you overlook the beautiful blue Caribbean waters, the swimming pools, hot tubs and the lush tropical grounds!

THINGS TO DO ON THE PREMISES:

For those lazy days when you just want to relax, enjoy sitting in the lounge chairs and/or swimming in one of our 5 pools or at the beach. Need a little hot tub action…. Yep, just jump right into one of the two on the grounds! Snorkeling can be done right off the beach or better yet, rent one of the kayaks and paddle out to the reef and do some snorkeling while you are out there! If you’re looking for more adventure, rent a Hobie CAT (located on the premises) or have a jet ski delivered right to our beach. The Belizean reef is the second largest barrier reef in the world at your fingertips, ready and waiting for endless discoveries.

If you’d like a little more TLC, order a spa treatment and they will come to the condo!

Looking for some good old fashioned exercise…. Have a walk on the gorgeous beach right out your door or go to our newly opened gym with a full set of exercise equipment.

HOW TO GET AROUND

Part of the charm of the island is that transportation is mostly by boat, bike and golf cart. This provides a sense of closeness and more intimate involvement with the land, sightseeing now being part of every excursion. However you decide to travel, San Pedro is only a few minutes away. And yes, the golf cart will also be delivered to your door!

THE STAFF:

Grand Caribe has one of the finest staff on the island, just ask and you shall receive! They go out of their way to make your vacation one to remember! Want the kitchen stocked, just ask! Have your laundry done every day if you wish! Need help booking tours, not sure where to eat… talk to our concierge, they will be happy to assist! Enjoy daily housekeeping, pool bar service, room service, and 24 hour security!!!

HUNGRY?

If you don't feel like cooking, enjoy the new Rain Restaurant or Rain Roof Top Terrace on the premises or call in for room service. There are several restaurants within walking distance down the beach, including Ak Bol, Aji, and Pulapa bar. Rent a golf cart or take a water taxi and go into town. Many of the restaurants north of Grand Caribe will pick you up at our dock and safely return you home Free of Charge!

LOOKING FOR ADVENTURE

Enjoy snorkeling, diving, sailing, sunset cruises, blue hole and reef aerial tours, fishing, crocodile hunting, zip lining, cave tubing, horseback riding, jungle tours, visit the Mayan Ruins, Belize Zoo or spend some time wondering around San Pedro Town.

About Lori

We lead a hectic life, having seven children, one daughter-in-law, 2 son-in-laws, two granddaughters (so far), 3 dogs, 2 granddogs (who make regular visits!), and two horses. We also have a large extended family, and a week barely goes by without some event to keep us busy.

Our professional lives are full as well, and we always have a backlog of things to do. Belize is a wonderful change of atmosphere from our home in Cincinnati in many ways!

If it weren't for the horses, we might be in Belize a lot more. But, you know girls and their horses, so I don't expect that part to change anytime soon.

We all enjoy the water, and the boys and I love to scuba dive while the girls love the pool. We also enjoy a lot of outdoor activities, and we look forward to further explorations of beautiful Belize.

Lori purchased this condo in 2012

Why Lori chose Ambergris Caye

We have been wanting a second home on the beach for several years. We've looked at many places in the Caribbean, including Aruba, Barbados, Tortola, Curacao, Grand Cayman and even southern Belize. When we arrived at Grand Caribe, we knew that we had found the paradise we were looking for.

What makes this condo unique

Grand Caribe and the surrounding area offers that unique combination of a laid back and easy going vibe with total luxury. The people everywhere are very friendly, the town is rich with local flavor, there are tons of things to do, the water is a gorgeous blue, and everything is close and easy to get to. In all of the places we have visited, we have never found this mix of nature, hospitality and opulence in one place. For us, this is the paradise we have been looking for. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Are stay at the Grand Cribe was amazing! The front desk and housekeeping was top notch.
They were extremely helpful and informative. It was wonderful to have all of our laundry done!
The Condo was lovely and had a beautiful view. I would definitely return to the Grand Cribe. The ground keepers were always working to keep the resort looking great. My teenagers had a great time snorkeling, fishing, visiting the ruins and zip lining. It was very nice to get picked up at the end of the dock for our adventures. The restaurants were wonderful. Some of the ones we enjoyed are Elvi's Kitchen, Estel's, Mambo, Ak Bol, Aji's, Tapas Bar, Capricorn, Palapa Bar, Belize Chocolate factory, and Blue Water Grill. Be sure to visit Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley! The golf carts were a blast and a great way to get around.
I will definitely return to the Grand Cribe and Ambergris Caye!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
This is an outstanding property! The condo is well equipped for your comfort. The front desk staff were top notch as well as our housekeeping crew. Our teenagers loved this vacation and thanked us for the experience. We loved the ease of being steps away from the dock for pick up for our snorkeling adventures. We also loved the fact that you can order a jet ski or Hobie cat with delivery right to the beach. One of the easiest and most relaxing vacations ever.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time for the week of Thanksgiving. The condo is excellent and the facility is first class as well. Probably the nicest two bedroom place we have ever stayed in and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is fitted out better than most in the US and well stocked with everything you need in the kitchen to spend weeks here. If you are going to Ambergris Caye, you can not go wrong staying here if you are looking to be outside the main town of San Pedro but still close enough to go in on a daily basis. The road was in the process of being paved while we were there and once it is done in the coming month or two, it should cut the 20 minute golf cart ride in half making this out of town location even better. Highly recommended and we will be back.

WE WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
Four of us stayed 7 nights. Our communication with the owner, Lori, was very helpful with concerns before our trip. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Anytime we needed to talk with anyone like the dive shop or grocery store, the front desk had them call us. The day we arrived we ordered groceries and they were delivered. We loved the condo, it was very comfortable and love having filtered water out of the fridge and ice maker. View was awesome from the balcony. Housekeeping was excellent.
We rented a golf cart for a week. We went to several places to eat, Hurricanes, Blue Water Grill (which is the only place we didnt wear a bathing suit and cover), Warugama (best lobster ever), Akbol (walking distance from condo), Lazy Croc (also walking distance), Estel's, Palapa Bar. Took water taxi north to Rojo Lounge. Worth the trip. The best lobster pizza ever. Snorkeled under the end of the pier, hundreds of fish. Another day took a catamaran by Seaduced. Went to Hol Chan and snorkeled. Saw eagle rays, turtles, nurse sharks and shark alley. Went over to Caye Caulker for 2 hours. It was an awesome trip. I recommend using Seaduced. And ask for Luis and Palma. They were awesome.
Two things we were disappointed in at the resort was the food at the restaurant and tons of sea weed on the beaches. Couldn't go in the water at all from the beach. We did get in the water at the end of the pier. We were told it was the worst year ever for the sea weed.

We will go back!

Exceeded our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (2 teenage daughters) enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful condo. The condo itself is tastefully decorated . The owners were very helpful with arranging for the flight over to the island as well as providing helpful island restaurant and activity suggestions in a notebook in the condo. The 10-15 min flight over from Belize City was in a 15 passenger plane for which our daughter sat in the co-pilot seat! We did go back over to the mainland for a cave tubing/zip-lining/Mayan ruins one day during the week. Another excursion we did was a catamaran day trip including snorkeling and stopping at Caye Caulker, we went with "Seaduced" and had a wonderful time. The guides on the catamaran actually snorkeled with you, showing you different fish in the reef. We also did a half day fishing trip where we caught snapper and grouper. The guide cleaned and fillet the fish and we walked off the boat and took it to Ak Bol (restaurant down the beach) and they grilled it for us. So delicious!! We booked all of our excursions at the Grand Caribe.

As far as meals go--we asked our taxi driver to stop at a store in San Pedro on the way to the condo to pick up groceries for breakfast and lunch. So many delicious restaurants to choose from-- many within walking distance on the beach from the condo.

We did not rent a golf cart, just got a water or regular taxi when we wanted to go town.

Locals ride their bikes along the beach trying to sell their "wares", I would suggest buying in town as I found the prices better.

Dress is pretty casual, don't bother with dress shoes--flip flops the best for walking the beach to dinner!

We would definitely recommend this condo and Ambergris Caye!! Love the flavor of the island!!

Our 10 night stay at the Grand Caribe

  • 5 of 5
Your condo was great - everything thing and much more than we expected. The view was awesome. I do think you have the best. Maybe just maybe on the beach is better. But it was fun seeing the pool activity also. A wedding took place while we were there and we could see it all. Even though there were only two of us I loved having my own bathroom. We took advantage of the fan and shades on the patio. We only cooked in once but the kitchen was awesome. The flat screens with more channels than we have at home was interesting. We didn't watch much but at the end of a long activity-filled day it was fun to catch up on the news. The staff was amazing. When we checked into the condo by the front desk clerk she said leave a note for the housekeepers if you want your laundry done. I thought OK we'll leave a note. Well that was not necessary they literally did our laundry everyday from day one. We packed lighter because of it and could have taken even less. We tipped them generously and they were very sweet. The entire staff were friendly and nice.
We used bikes except to and from the airport. We rented them a Maya House just a short walk either on the beach or road from the condo. The location 2+ miles from San Pedro was perfect. Exercise enough to be able to eat all the lobster (in season) and stone crab claws we wanted. We took a long bike ride north. We went fishing a couple of times and of course snorkeling. Went to Caye Caulker for a day. Weather was mostly hot and muggy although we did have some great lighting storms accompanied by rain which at least resulted in less dusty roads. The super moon occurred while we were there and that was spectacular.



We tried many different restaurants while there. All unique and pretty good. We did go to Ak Bol a couple of times. Aji's, the Lazy Croc, Pirates Treasure, Caliente a couple of times, Estelle's, Elvies, Araguma(sp) and more. The only one that was disappointing was the on site restaurant. Really most restaurants have their menus in Belizean dollars except them and there's is too expensive for the type of restaurant it is. The drinks were almost twice as much as other restaurants and the staff for the most part seemed to be undertrained. Too bad. Just too many other options to stay there.
