Overview

Ambergris Caye Condo Rental Photos and Description

2BR/2BA Sleeps 4-6

The luxurious Grand Caribe, Ambergris Caye Resort, has the honor of winning the following 2014 Travelers Choice Trip Advisor awards:

Ranked #1 of 25 top hotels and resorts in Belize.

Ranked #2 of 25 top Central American hotels.

Ranked #4 of 25 top family-friendly hotels in Central America.

Ambergris Caye Ranked the #1 Island in the world two years in a row

You wake up to a bright blue sky and walk onto the veranda. The wind blows softly as you relax and look out onto the ocean, listening to the waves roll in. Your major decision: take it easy this morning and order breakfast in, visit one of the local restuarants, or cook your own in your spacious kitchen. You decide to take it easy today, and within minutes of ordering a delicious meal is delivered to your door…..another day in paradise begins.

Welcome to Grand Caribe, the best resort in the best part of Belize. This is luxury at its finest. Grand Caribe has everything you need to make your vacation one to remember.

To begin with, the view is outstanding. You overlook the largest swimming pool in the country, complete with a swim up bar for those days when you just want to chill. Smaller pools and hot tubs are a few steps away if the urge strikes. If you're feeling the need for more activity, take advantage of the facilities at the new gym to keep in shape.

The ocean is THERE, with an immaculate beach and one of the best piers on the island. Water activities of all kinds are at your fingertips. Ambergris Caye and surrounding Belize have a world of adventure to participate in. Discover them on your own, or use the excellent Concierge service to guide you in your selections and do the booking for you.

If you prefer, simply swim off the beach, or take a short jaunt by kayak or hobie cat to the barrier reef just offshore for some snorkeling. This is the second largest barrier reef in the world at your fingertips, ready and waiting for endless discoveries.

The staff is at your service for all of your needs. Notify them ahead of time and they can stock your kitchen with whatever you desire. Have your laundry done before you leave so that you can relax and forego the drudgery when you get home.

Our home away from home is furnished with your comfort in mind. The furniture is hand made from native hardwood and finished to perfection by the local craftsmen. Beautiful works by local artists grace every room. The kitchen is furnished with all of the appliances and cookware you need to prepare a tasty meal. Each room has it's own TV and DVD player for the times you just want to chill. You have access to our book filled with insider information about the best activities to do and the best places to eat. Don't feel like cooking, enjoy the new Rain Restaurant on the premises or call in for room service. If you decide to venture out and find another hidden gem, let us know so that we can place it in our guide!

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. All of the dive shops and many of the restaurants will pick you up at your pier free of charge.

With all of the amenities you could wish for and all of the adventures you can handle, Grand Caribe offers all of the vacation you’ve been looking for. It’s why we’ve made this our second home, and after visiting, you might just decide to do the same.

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.

Todo lo que uno puede esperar

  • 5 of 5

Grande Caribe entrega todo lo que ofrece y eso se agradece. Muy buen servicio de aseo, lavandería y recepción hacen que la estadía sea placentera. El departamento es amplio, cómodo y bellamente decorado. La vista es espectacular. Los jardines, piscina y playa están cuidados y muy limpios. Los precios de los servicios de turismo sin duda son mas elevados que en otros lugares de la isla, pero son adecuados al nivel del Resort. Si quieres conseguir mejores precios es cosa que vayas a la San Pedro y contrates estos servicios directamente con los operadores donde siempre puedes conseguir descuentos, sobre todo si vas a tomar varias excursiones. Lo mismo ocurre con los restaurantes. Son caros. Sin embargo son buenos. Hay infinidad de oferta gastronómica en la isla, de calidad y a mejor precio, sin embargo deberás moverte. Como esta algo alejado del pueblo, es recomendable arrendar un carro de golf para poder moverse libremente (el camino ya esta pavimentado hasta pasado el Resort, por lo que es un agrado moverse en estos carritos)

A nosotros nos gusta mucho cocinar. Aunque al departamento le faltan algunos utensilios, esta bien equipado para poder hacer cualquier cosa. En el pueblo hay buenas panaderías. Podrás encontrar fruta y verduras de calidad. No hay donde comprar pescados, mariscos u otras carnes frescas. Todo es congelado. Solo un día encontramos un vendedor ambulante que vendía camarones frescos. Los precios son elevados. Sin embargo después de estar viajando varias semanas (en nuestro caso por Guatemala y Belize), se agrádese poder cocinar algo simple para comer (ya estábamos un poco aburridos de tanto restaurante).

Si te gusta el buceo y el relax, Belize puede ser un gran destino, y Grande Caribe uno de los mejores sitios dentro de San Pedro.

Grande Caribe Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful suite, well decorated, comfortable beds and very clean. Good service and well maintained grounds/pool. One complaint is that the alcoholic drinks though full price had very little alcohol in them. On the day we flew out the air traffic controllers didn't show up for work shutting down the international terminal in Belize City for a time. It would have been helpful to have been informed of this as we checked out! With further research upon arriving home, it looks like the radar equipment is faulty, as well as headsets, and shifts are longer (sometimes by a lot) than the approved time because of staff shortages, along with other issues. I think it would be good to make this information known to all visitors in hopes that we can support these essential service workers in getting what they need to do their job safely and with appreciation. I did write an email to the Minister of Tourism and Aviation. It feels very serious to me.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your kind words about our "island home." I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed Grand Caribe and your stay with us, but am saddened that an Air Traffic Controller's strike at Belize International left your overall experience marred. Strikes (sick outs) are extremely rare here, but even little Belize isn't immune to employee/government rifts. In terms of awareness, this strike was a coordinated effort designed to have the greatest impact. Unfortunately, Grand Caribe staff couldn't inform you, as even the airport wasn't aware until the morning of. Two international flights had service disrupted that day, and I'm so sorry yours was one of them. The Belize Department of Civil Aviation has taken measures to ensure that the International Airport maintains all international and safety operations standards and there have been no disruptions since. Thank you again, and I hope you will return to stay with us again some day...we'd love to have you as our guests.

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!
