2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Fully Equipped Condo Overlooking the Beach
About Diane Boughton
Hi! J and Diane are 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. Visit our website for more information
Diane Boughton purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Diane Boughton chose San Pedro
We love snorkeling, fishing and other outdoor activities. With the amazing barrier reef right outside our condo the decision to purchase 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! Unique to this resort is a brand new Urgent Care Center located on the property. I do not know of ANY other resort in Central or South America that offers this attention to detail. No other resort on Ambergris Caye can boast those amenities!!

Beautiful well cared for resort
We had a very relaxing stay with our son and the unit was perfect for us with two en-suites and a lovely deck and view. Our son was diving and we were snorkelling so it was great that the trips picked us up from our wharf . The diving was great and the water very clear. We self catered most of the time as eating out was expensive. The kitchen was well equipped for this
The resort was very quiet so we often had the lovely pools to ourselves which we enjoyed.
It is great to hear you had such a relaxing and enjoyable stay in our condo. Thank you for taking the time to write a nice review. J & Di Boughton
Incredible resort - awesome family vacation
Our family of 5 (kids 13, 10, 10) had a wonderful experience at Grand Caribe. The condo unit was spacious and well equipped with a nice view overlooking the pools and ocean. Daily service was excellent. Staff was very nice. Amenities at GC were excellent. We only booked one activity through Grand Caribe; the others we used Creative Tours Belize for two excellent private boat tours - highly recommend. We have stayed at many VRBO locations in the Carribean and Hawaii - Grand Caribe ranks right at the top. We will definitely return.
Thank you for staying at our condo. We are thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your time at Grand Caribe. I agree with your assessment of the location of our condo compared to others in the resort. It is situated such that you can enjoy the ocean and the pool and is protected from the wind or rain. We would be happy to host you again and as a repeat guest I can offer a discount to you!
Fantastic property! Highly recommended!
We stayed 6 nights and had a wonderful time. The property was very clean and well run. Staff was very professional and helpful. Room was really nice, great view, and kept very clean. The property manager was very helpful in getting us transferred from airport to hotel and back. Food at the Rain and Aqua View restaurants was excellent and reasonably priced. All in all, would definitely stay there again!
Thank you Stan for your review! So glad you had a great time! We look forward to your return! Repeat guests receive a special incentitive!
Excellent Condo and Overall Resort for a Family with Teens
My wife , two late teen boys and I stayed at this property and really appreciated the layout, large deck, ocean and pool views and cleanliness. Starting with the Grande Caribe resort, the service, food and overall property was excellent. We also appreciated a condo-style resort which had wonderful amenities (including a good gym and convenience market), but not the noise of hotels which sometimes have people organizing games, etc. The concierge was also helpful in booking snorkeling trips that pickup right off the dock of the hotel. The condo itself was gorgeous, extremely clean and well appointed. It was also quiet. Another feature we didn't fully realize until we were there is that there is daily laundry service for clothes (that are washed in a r}oom adjacent to this specific condo, so you don't have to worry about them getting lost.
The only negative thing I would say about the place (which I believe applies for most of this part of Ambergris Caye), is that the beaches are somewhat narrow, and the swimming is limited (small swimming area with some sharp rocks). That being said, there are excellent pools (six of them) and there was plenty of room to lay in chairs on the beach. I highly recommend this property for others!
Thank you for your kind review. Grand Caribe is indeed a special place and I am so glad you enjoyed it! I will have to include water socks in my tips letter!
Happy New Year!!
Paradise! Beautiful inside and out!
The view from this condo was breathtaking! My favorite part of the day was having coffee on the balcony and seeing the ocean and the trees surrounded by the beautiful pools and landscaping. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. This was one of the best vacations we have been on, and I can’t wait to go back! There is so much to do on the island, and the food was delicious. The resort is located perfectly between town and a “secret beach”. The resorts private beach and pools are a great way to relax. Our condo was equipped with everything we needed to stay in and cook if we wanted. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable! The staff are very helpful and polite and facility mechanicals are well kept.
Thank you for your stay at our condo! We look forward to your return!!
Not much to add to the other reviews: great service, great views, beautiful condo. I would definitely come back.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Looking forward to your return visit!
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.
