Read the Long Description below to understand the full glory of Grand Caribe!
THE ISLAND: AMBERGRIS CAYE; Trip Advisor Traveler's Choice 2013 - Rated #1 Island in the WORLD!
Ambergris Caye is the largest in Belize and most popular amongst tourists. Approximately 26 miles long (1 mile wide) it is divided, north and south, by a cut (small waterway) that has a toll bridge across it. Yes, you read correctly……..it’s the cutest little toll bridge you will ever see! The heart of town is known as San Pedro. The town itself and just south is busy and bustling, while to the north it is more relaxed and quiet, where palm trees are abundant....providing a truer sense of being in the tropics. The north side of 'the cut' has long been viewed as a prime location because of it's more serene setting.....yet close proximity to town.
THE RESORT: GRAND CARIBE; Trip Advisor Traveler's Choice 2013 - Rated #10 Resort in CENTRAL AMERICA!

Hello! We are Rob and Nancy Case and our “main” home is in Washington, DC. When we're not traveling somewhere in the World for television production (our jobs,) we escape to the peace and relaxation we have in our 'Island Home' at Grand Caribe! We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do and we thank you for visiting us at VRBO!
During the many years we’ve traveled abroad, we always kept an open eye for a “getaway place.” A laid back place that was slow and relaxed and yet a place that offered a variety of activities that would keep things fresh and exciting. On our first trip to Belize and Ambergris Caye - with its beautiful azure water, the closeness of the reef, and the warm, friendly people – we knew we found the perfect destination. Other pluses….the official language is English and the US dollar is accepted everywhere. When we bought at Grand Caribe the project was in its development stage so all we had to go on were beautiful concept drawings and one building whose construction was at an early stage. Even with that scant information we could instantly tell the completed Grand Caribe project - both the resort and residences - would be spectacular with a character unique in all of Belize. Unique character indeed - wide open floor plans accented with gently curving walls; the stoutly constructed buildings set in a master sight plan that would embrace a spacious inner court; and the expanse of the beach front, offering the most spectacular Caribbean views in all of Ambergris Caye; a residence that was easily accessible to the Town of San Pedro and yet far enough away to retain it’s exclusivity, yes….we knew THIS was the RIGHT place….the little piece of paradise that we could call our own!! We bought and we’ve never looked back or had one regret. Say no more!
Lets start with the unobstructed view from our balcony of the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean........spectacular and mesmerizing! The serenity and seclusion of Grand Caribe's location on the north end, makes for a perfect romantic 'hideaway.' Need more interaction or to see friendly faces? You can start with our 'swim-up' pool bar and grill. We are also perfectly located within walking distance of a variety of excellent restaurants, a yoga retreat, and the famous Palapa Bar. The Grand Caribe staff is always ready to make any wish you have come true--whether it is arranging a trip to the mainland, making a restaurant reservation, a snorkeling or diving trip, or even an in-room massage. By golf cart, water taxi or regular taxi, Grand Caribe is only 1 1/2 miles, a short ride away, from the 'hustle and bustle' of San Pedro Town and its many restaurants, bars and unique shops. A boat ride up north takes you to more world-class dining and beautiful scenery. At Grand Caribe you are in the center of everything – starting with the romantic serenity of your Grand Caribe home.
