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.

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 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. And if you 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, two granddaughters (so far), 2 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.

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.

Perfect, to the last detail!

  • 5 of 5
We (2 couples) stayed here for 5 nights and it was fantastic. First, my communications, with Lori, the owner were easy and flawless. She was quick to respond and answer all my questions… and I had a lot of questions! The property is beautiful and the staff was outstanding. From check-in to check-out, they attended to our every need. Even booked our flights from Belize City.

When we first got into the room, the freezer was out of ice and we were hot and really wanted to make that 1st margarita. We mentioned the ice and within 5 minutes 2 DIFFERENT people showed up with ice :) The freezer just needed a little time to do it's job and did work perfectly… The ammenities of the condo, from the furnishings, the appliances, the beds and the bathrooms to the beautiful artwork, were fantastic. Beds were very comfortable. We had the 2 twin beds converted to a king for the other couple. The AC worked very well, the water pressure is very good, the filtered water in the fridge is a bonus and the view was beautiful… (and the laundry service… seriously, they did our laundry everyday…)

I would highly recommend this property to my nearest and dearest. We rented a golf cart and had some really fun adventures on it, though it was not necessary. We went into town and ate at Wild Mango's, Blue Water Grill, and Lily's (i think it was Lily's…Right off the dock at Amigos Del Mar Dive Shop). They were all very good, but the local "dive" restaurant right off the dock of the dive shop was our favorite in town. From the condo, we were able to walk to Aji's and Akbul. Aji's was so very good. The food was very good, the service great and the atmosphere was pure paradise. Akbul had an ok dinner, excellent breakfasts and to die for banana smoothies. The service at Akbul was pretty bad, but again, the tables on the beach allow you to overlook the poor service. Also loved Rojo Bar to the North. We had our favorite late afternoon of beach drinks and dinner at Mata Chica a few miles north of the condo. Superb and fun...

For Dive shops, we LOVED Ecodivers. William (dive master) and staff were all terrific. Ambergris Dive Shop was also very good. Disliked diving with Amigos del Mar. They were rude and unreliable.

RENT THIS CONDO, but treat it with tender-loving care for the next time we make it down to Belize :) Thanks, Lori!
