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 distance away where you can dance away the night, or you can have a snack and a drink Grand Caribe's swim up bar, or relax at your private spacious balcony overlooking the Caribbean.

Rain, an elegant roof top restaurant located on the Resort grounds is second to no other restaurant on the island. It boasts an amazing menu and sunset views that will take your breath away!

No other resort on Ambergris Caye can boast those amenities!!

Great Place and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot wait to go back down to this place again. My only regret is not being able to spend more time there. The living accommodations, staff, and available amenities are five star worthy. I have been to Belize two times before and this condo was by far better than other places I have stayed. The condo comes equipped with with everything you may need and then more! It was very clean and customer service was excellent. The location is great with plenty to do right around the resort (kayaking, paddle boarding, Rain restaurant, bars, etc.) and it is very easy to go into downtown San Pedro. I highly recommend this place to all people!

Beautiful paradise location at Grande Caribe

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the best vacation my husband and I have ever had!! The Belizian locals were friendly and helpful during our travels to Grande Caribe, Ambergris Caye. From the moment that we arrived at the airport, traveled by taxi, water ferry and until our departure, we were continually delighted by the culture. And our amazement when we arrived at our vacation rental seemed to good to be true. Our condo was astonishing beautiful. Spacious two bedroom, two bath was beautifully decorated and very clean. The condo overlooked

several pools and the Caribbean Sea. Our vacation exceeded anything we could have anticipated. We are definitely going to book this location again. Thank you for providing an excellent venue :-) Bob & Rose

Beautiful condo in a spectacular area!! It's unBelizeable!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back a few days ago from a 10 day stay with another couple. Our experience was absolutely great from beginning to end! Diane was wonderful to work with prior to our stay. I emailed her more than once with questions and she was always prompt to respond and offered answers and ideas. The condo itself was just as beautiful as shown, and the resort exceeded our expectations as far as customer service and cleanliness. They were wonderful to work with for booking our puddle jumper, golf cart, excursions and massages. They did a great job of tidying up the beach and the pool areas every morning, as well as cleaning the condo daily and doing any laundry we wanted. We took a reef fishing excursion one morning and my husband was able to cook our snapper bounty using the cookware at the condo. We did stock up on some groceries in San Pedro the day we arrived and then bought supplies as needed at the market right at the resort. The food and drinks from the pool bar area were all great, and the waitstaff were very attentive whenever we were at the beach or pool. We enjoyed the location because we could walk on the beach both to the north and south and we found several bars and restaurants within walking distance (Dive Bar, Ak Bol, Aji, Palapas Bar) as well as many on our golf cart (Truck Stop, Pirates Treasure--HIGHLY recommend doing the Chef's Table for dinner, Melt Cafe and more in San Pedro). We were very happy with the excursions booked through the resort, Hol Chan snorkel tour, reef fishing and Lamanai Mayan ruins tour and absolutely loved our massages on the beach. We would definitely recommend Diane's condo and the resort to friends and family and are looking forward to another stay in the future.

This is THE PLACE you want to book!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing and wonderful week at this stunning two bedroom home in Ambergris Caye! Everywhere you look you see a lovely detail, or a jaw dropping view of the Caribbean.

The beds are very comfy, with two gorgeous bath rooms, and a VERY well appointed kitchen. We loved the graceful artwork, and the porch is just terrific.

The grounds are immaculate, with gracious staff, and the service... Flawless!

Walk to a lovely private pier, well equipped with kayaks and snorkel gear... Enjoy a meal at "Rain", also an easy walk.

Don't miss out on this lovely home! The owners, if you get to meet them, are fantastic people!

Icredible luxury beachfront vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed for a full week and had an incredible time!! It was the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. We first arrived on a Saturday and were greeted with exceptional service at the front lobby. They gave us our keys and directed us to our luxurious apartment with ocean views. We toured the beautiful resort area where there was a swim up pool bar and a friendly and accommodating staff. The apartment was nothing short of spectacular. The master bedroom's view looked directly out to the azul ocean and gorgeous sand. Off the master bedroom was a balcony with chairs and a table perfect for lunch and gazing up at the stars at night. The master bath had a jacuzzi tub and large stand up shower with a two person vanity perfect for sharing. The living room had a large couch and oversized chair with a tv and coffee table. Very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was gorgeous with its beautiful finishes and marble countertops. It's stainless steel, state of the art appliances were great for those nights we stayed in and cooked the fish we caught off the dock. Great experience!! The second bedroom was large and just as beautiful. The apartment had another full bathroom off the living room. The apartments dining room and breakfast bar were the perfect size for accomodating us.

Throughout the week we snorkeling at shark Ray alley and ho chan which was awesome! We saw a plethora of tropical fish, starfish, sea turtles and even swam with sharks and sting rays that we were able to hold and take a picture with! The next day we lounged by the pool bar and got ready for our next tour... Cave tubing and Mayan ruins. We hiked about a quarter mile into the jungle on a guided tour and approached a cave used by the Mayans. We had head lamps and inner tubs. We drifted down the stream and learned the caves history. Next, we climbed the Mayan ruins, learned its history, and visited a museum. What a fabulous day! On our last day we went deep sea and reef fishing and caught a number of fish! Among the fish we caught were barracuda, ocean trigger and snapper. Our guided filleted the fish and took us to palapas bar where they then cooked us the fish we just caught. Awesome experience and the fish was delicious!!!

All of us highly recommend grand caribe! Between the luxurious oceanfront apartment with state of the art amenities, friendly and accomodating staff, and incredible excursions we had a blast!!!!! Excellent vacation!

Car: not necessary

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 5 miles north of Grand Caribe is the "Secret Beach"....breathtaking sandy beach in calm ocean water for snorkeling and swimming enjoyment.

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.
