“Wow---Best Resort in Belize--1st Class Accomodations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We stayed for 16 days over Christmas----the accommodations were outstanding---best in the Carribbean that we've ever experienced. They have a swim up pool bar which serves absolutely the best food we experienced while in Belize---we didn't need to go anywhere else. The grounds were really immaculate, and all of the staff could not have been friendlier. I highly recommend heading down the beach just a short walk to the Palapa Bar for an afternoon beer on the upper deck overlooking the reef----you forget where you are----very therapeutic. We had occasion to visit several other resorts while on the island---Grand Caribe is by far the best run of the resorts there in our opinion----We did not stay in an oceanfront condo---however it may as well have been as our unit had amazing views of the ocean---Great Vacation--unforgettable!!!

There was absolutely nothing we didn't like about Grand Caribe. Our condo was beautiful; just perfect for two, the pools were cool and inviting, the bar/food area at the pool was fun and delicious, the view was outstanding and the staff were beyond anything I have ever experienced. They spoke to us as though they already knew us and were more than willing to do anything to make our stay more enjoyable (which I don't know how they could have done that because we felt it was perfect)! I didn't rate the fitness center or spa because we didn't go there. We didn't even know they had a fitness center or spa :)

You know how sometimes you go on vacation and as you are exploring you see other resorts and wonder what it would be like to stay there? In San Pedro, we never saw anything that appeared to top the Grand Caribe. We were there for my brother's wedding and stayed in a 3 bedroom villa. We were there with our 4 children (ages 6, 5, 2 and 5mo.). The staff was so friendly and kind, I cannot say enough about how energetic and kind they were to each of the children. They knew them all by name and called out to them everytime they saw them. It really was the very perfect place for a family to vacation.
The food is a little pricey, as it is everywhere on the island. But Tua more than made up for that at bar by his wonderful personality!
We booked one snorkle trip for the whole family and the concierge booked the perfect person to handle our "challanging" group.
We would go back in a heartbeat and the kids ask almost weekly when we can go back! Thank you Grand Caribe!

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. It reminds me of a Ritz Carlton. This was the first time for me to stay at a hotel condo. It was nice because a lot of the people we met had been there many times and gave us good advice as far as restaurants and activities. The rooms are huge. I stayed in a one bedroom that was about 1000 sq ft. Maid service was phenomenal and they do your laundry. Every room has a view of the ocean. I booked my room through vrbo.com and got a great deal. At night the only thing I did not like was having my room close to the street and smells of sewer wafting unto the grounds. The beach is not really swimmable due to seaweed but you can swim off of the dock. The pool is great. The hotel only has one restaurant that is connected to the pool. The food was surprisingly good. The staff in the restaurant for some reason was always rude and very slow. To health nuts, eating fruits and veges is a luxury here so get some at the market when you arrive. If you fish you can do it right off of the dock for your dinner. Lots of snapper. We went deep sea fishing and caught the same stuff as we did off of the dock. The front desk staff was always super helpful. Everyone drives golf carts here. They were really expensive. I think about 75.00 usd per day. You can rent them by the hour but they are often times not available. Cabs are really expensive but comparable to other Caribbean countries. The more casual restaurants I found to be the best. Do not miss Elvi’s kitchen. The Belizean tacos are amazing. The street bbq is super good too. On every corner people are making papusas. Eat a lot of them!! Try and go during lobster season. Two must do attractions: First you must snorkel at Hol Chan. It is the best I have seen in the world. You will see sharks, grouper, turtle and stingrays. They bring you to deep areas where people are scuba diving below you. Another attraction is the Mayan ruins. If you have a lot of energy getting there by boat and bus is fine but if you are with kids or are older fly over to Belize. It is a very long but cool day. Last tip. You only need to arrive to the Ambergris airport 5 minutes before departure. Very lax.

Everything was lovely until we discovered that there were bugs in the mattreses of one of our bedrooms and my daughters were eaten to death. We did not let that ruin our otherwise wonderful experience, HOWEVER we were not taken too seriously and compensation was not offered. That cut our three bedroom into a two bedroom because nobody was willing to go in that room again.

San Pedro and many areas surrounding are quite seedy. Staying just north at Grand Caribe is a bit of an oasis and not too far out of town for dinner treks by boat or golf cart. The concierge, Melody, is exceptional at booking dinner reservations, dive trips or any other adventures. Dive operators pick you up right in front on the diock. The pools are salt water pools. Accommodations are clean and about 2years old. food is just so-so and over priced at Grand Caribe. Best to go elsewhere. Biggest disappointment was how much trash and plastic there is in the water. The beach is not the mat enticing beach. In all, a good experience.

Room Tip: Depends on the amount of people traveling. We loved one bedroom on the beach first floor walk out...

this place is INCREDIBLE! If you are looking for privacy, but just minutes from the bridge to downtown San Pedro, this place is incredible. I would highly recommend it. The pool is the largest on the island. The food is awesome. And the beach ir private & very nice.
