About Diane Boughton

Hi! J and Diane are recent retirees from Pennsylvania. We looked at a number of other locations both within Belize and the Caribbean. But the beauty of Ambergris Caye and the friendliness of the people led us to Grand Caribe.

Diane Boughton purchased this condo in 2012

Why Diane Boughton chose Ambergris Caye

We love snorkeling, fishing and other outdoor activities. With the amazing barrier reef right outside our door...the decision to purchase a condo at Grand Caribe was easy!!

What makes this condo unique

Our guests have the option of doing as much or as little as they want. The town of San Pedro is only a short water taxi away where you can dance away the night, or you can have a snack and a drink at The Resort's swim up bar, or relax at your private spacious balcony overlooking the Caribbean.

COMING FALL 2014 - An elegant restaurant run by the former owners of Aji, a grocery store and a fitness gym...right on the Resort grounds!!! No other resort on Ambergris Caye can boast those amenities!!

Incredible time!! Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with friends of ours in March. We had the BEST time. The condo was wonderful and the resort exceptional (especially lounging around the pool and bar)! We rented a golf cart for a few days and had so much fun exploring the island and finding wonderful bars/restaurants. There were many in walking distance but we enjoyed the thrill of driving around and checking everything out. The owners were wonderful and gave great advice regarding restaurants, activities, and excursions. She would reply to my email within hours! It was extremely relaxing to have the resort plan our transfers from Belize City to San Pedro, set up the taxi, etc. They also set up our excursion (Mayan ruins and Cave Tubing........highly recommended) and it all just flowed smoothly! We can't wait to go back because there is so much more to see and do. Five days just wasn't enough!!!

Island Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple vacationed at Grande Caribe for a week in December. The condo was exceptional! It was immaculate and beautifully decorated as a classy island get away. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could ever need to prepare meals, but we didn't use much, as it was a vacation and no one wanted to cook, let alone, experience the adventure of getting groceries in town. Having coffee provided each day was a nice touch to get us going. The condo has a terrific view of the pretty pool area and picturesque beach. It was also very quiet there, especially before the weekend when not many guests were there. The staff was also exceptional, from the courteous front desk personnel to the knowledgeable and patient concierge services, to the friendly housekeeping, pool and security staff. We all felt very safe, pampered and very well taken care of there. Prior to our even booking the condo, the owners were wonderful with explaining how things worked on the island. This was our first experience with island living so we had lots of questions, esp. about transportation. We were warned about the road in front of the resort, but not prepared for the almost impassable muddy, pothole mess we had when we arrived the day after a big rain storm. Thankfully, a real concrete road is in the process of being built and that eyesore will be eliminated. We learned quickly to take the beach path and water taxis rather than the road. We took the Hol Chan snorkeling tour from Tuffenuff tours. It was absolutely breathtaking! I am not much of a swimmer and to be honest was scared to death to snorkel in deep water, but the professionals on that boat, especially "Candy-Man" our captain and one of the tour guides, made the trip one of a lifetime for me. It was so good, we went again the next day on the catamaran tour and had a blast. The Lamanai Mayan Ruin tour was worth every single penny. What a fun adventure to just get there: water taxi, plane, van, boat. It is so planned out, and went like clock work. It did rain that day, so make sure you bring rain gear just in case, as those who didn't were miserable. Remember you are visiting a rainforest after all! We did dine at the brand new restaurant "Rain" and had some good meals as well as dining at the various places up and down the beach. The concierge was great with recommendations for us. All in all, a terrific, memorable vacation with a beautiful condo on an island paradise!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (two children ages 9 and 11) had the most amazing vacation at the Grand Caribe! We were fully ready for our vacation with the help of Diane. She answered so many questions I had before leaving, and provided great suggestions on excursions, grocery shopping, dining, etc. The condo is fully equipped and absolutely beautiful. The staff was exceptional. They were very friendly and did everything possible to make your stay wonderful and unforgettable. I felt completely safe at the resort at all times. The security was awesome, and were so personable. I must say I felt safe in town as well; the locals were really great. We did the Hol Chan and shark alley snorkeling. It is a must even with children. We also went to the ruins and cave tubing. Unforgettable is all I can say- incredible excursions. I would highly recommend this resort and this condo to everyone! Thanks for the memories and sharing your piece of paradise with us!

Gorgeous! should be 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

The owner (Diane) is amazing. She communicated with us a lot and guided us to the best things to do. The condo is amazing!!! We have traveled all over the world, and this is by far the best place we stayed. The on site security, maid service, amenities, staff, pools, dock, ....so many things....are all amazing and perfect. Definitely go to Hol Chan and Shark Ray ally, even if you are not sure, or nervous. It is not to be missed. We had a 7 and 9 year old with us. They snorkled Hol Chan and looked over the side at Shark Ray Ally, and loved every minute of it. We saw Eagle rays, Green sea turtle, nurse sharks, sting rays, eels, lobster, Lion Fish, and soooo many tropical fish. Definitely take the kayaks out and tie up to the bouy and snorkel the reef. It is amazing!!! Oh, and try the Ceviche. Possibly the best thing we ate, over and over again! I seriously can't say enough about the resort, and the people. So helpful and wonderful. THANKS!!!!!!!!

Five star in Ambergris Caye

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in this beautiful beachfront property. The condo was amazing! It was well equipped and beautifully decorated. The owner was very responsive to questions regarding Ambergris Caye. The staff here try to do there best but remember customer service is on a different level. I ordered groceries to be stocked and received half of the things I actually ordered and a lot of things I didn't. They were very willing to correct the charges though. The property is 2 miles from town and the best mode of transportation is golf cart and water taxi. We came over New Years so there was a lot of energy on the island but after that it was super quiet and laid back everywhere. Several restaurants are within walking distance, Aji and Capricorn. We also went to the north end of the island and ate at Mambos which was fantastic. They even provided a boat for pickup. Unfortunately, it rained a lot while we were there. According to locals they had not seen so much rain for awhile. Lil Alphonse had a great snorkeling trip to Hol Chan and shark alley which the resort can book. We pre-booked our open water scuba dive certification with Amigos Del Mar dive shop that I would not recommend. Overall great trip that I would like to share with the whole family. Thanks for sharing your space.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we am so happy that despite the rain, you enjoyed your stay. We have yet to eat at Mambos....with your endorsement, that restaurant is next on our list! I will check into the grocery mix-up as GC typically is accurate with the provisions package....thanks for bringing that to our attention. We hope to have you and your family again as our guests..

Less than 400 yards off-shore is the spectacular coral reef which is the longest in the Western Hemisphere. Snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing are world class experiences. For the adventurous and truly top-rate diving, take a trip to the Blue Hole, Lighthouse Reef or Turneffe Island. Closer to the Resort along the protected side of the reef try Shark-Ray Alley or Hol Chan Reserve. You'll swim among nurse sharks, sting rays, sea turtles and an unbelievable array of colorful fish and coral.

Sport fishing for tarpon, permit and bonefish is probably the best in the world around the cayes. If you prefer to go past the reef, deep-sea fishing is another option. Anglers fish for tuna, dolphin, and marlin with well seasoned guides.

If water activity is not of interest, shopping in San Pedro for hand made jewelry, paintings, wood carvings and other crafts is always an option. About 2.5 miles north of Grand Caribe is Butterfly Jungle, a butterfly breeding facility with 15-30 species of butterflies in an enclosure.

Further north is one of the newest Belizian national parks, Bacalar Chico National Park & Marine Reserve. The park features ancient Mayan ruins, scores of animals and birds and numerous species of plants.

On the mainland, excursions to other Mayan ruins, cave tubing, horse back riding, zip lining boat tours and many other activities can be easily arranged. The full service concierge staff in the Grand Caribe lobby are there to assist you.
