“Perfect Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I just returned from a "girls trip" to Belize and we stayed in paradise at the Grand Caribe. We could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay. The staff was excellent from the very beginning stages of booking including making arrangements to get us to the island from the mainland. The resort is gorgeous and in pristine condition. Staff was polite and always available for any questions. Never were we concerned about our safety as a group of 4 younger females traveling alone and often returning from town early morning. Our laundry was done every day and folded in our rooms, this is a priceless amenity in the tropics where it rains and gets muddy virtually every day. The rooms themselves were breath-taking. Our beds and rooms were covered in flower pedals and floral arrangements upon our arrival. We purchased the provisions package in advance to our arrival, definitely worth it and nice to have a stocked condo upon arrival. We will definitely be returning to stay at the Grand Caribe and I intend to tell everyone I know to stay there as well.

Room Tip: The ground level rooms are perfect because they have walk-out access to the beach and pool.

I got married here last month and I couldn't have chosen a better resort for this. It's one of the few resorts I found on the island that has 3, 4, and 5 bedroom condos which was really great so all my family could stay together. Service was great, pool was never too crowded, and everything was immaculately clean. I think it's perfect for family vacations or a group of friends who want to stay together.

The Grand Caribe rescued us from another terrible hotel - thank you. The place was a little isolated, but the rooms were immaculate, the views were lovely, and the top-notch housekeeping staff performs a complimentary daily laundry service (which was needed after our adventures in the jungles of western Belize and after daily dives). They also offer in room massages on your balcony, which is another nice treat. Finally, all of the staff at the poolside restaurant were likewise very friendly - and cook a mean burger.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so be prepared to walk up if you're on the third floor.

We just spent the month at Grand Caribe and found it to be a perfect location for us. The staff was excellent,several restaurants within walking distance along the beach, a quick water taxi or taxi ride into San Pedro. Melody helped us book several tours,Evelin took good care of our housekeeping needs and the staff at Cowboy Doug's were so friendly....Chee, Wendy, Charlotte, Ada and Sheena. We're very sad to be leaving tomorrow!

These condo units are very high end! A quiet place to stay to get away from the crowds. Our one bedroom on third floor overlooking the ocean was more than expected! We felt like newlyweds as the condo was decorated with red flower pedals! The king bed had a heart outline with pedals. We have traveled the world and not seen anymore friendly staff and friendly people of the island. Every request was immediately seen to. We enjoyed eating at Aji, Capicorn and Kama was very specail as well for evening meals and lunch at Rojo bar up the coast by water taxi.. HIghly recommend Grand Caribe as the best choice to stay and with the addition of a new restaurant and convenience store will be even nicer. If we decide to return it will be our choice again.i Amazing sailing and snorkeling trips!

Room Tip: enjoyed the view of the ocean unobstructed by resort grounds in building "H"

Just completed 2nd trip to Ambergris Caye and both stays were at Grand Caribe. Having traveled to multiple international locations, if you seek relaxation and being surrounded by people who want you to have a great experience and visit, this is the location. First, entering the country at Belize City International airport was a pleasure, absolutely no language barrier for this English speaking family. The trip to the water taxi was informative; the ride to Ambergris Caye was beautiful and the Island itself, very relaxing. Grand Caribe is beautiful, well appointed and staff focused on ensuring you enjoy your stay, without hassle. Did not look into a fitness center nor did we have young kids to explore needs. Both of our children are certified Divers and needless to say, the reef was exceptional. If you plan to dive, March thru May should have less wind to affect trips. Several Dive shops have larger boats to assist with higher winds but visibility will decrease. Diving in March was spectacular, Mid Feb ran into some higher wind conditions. Dive shops will pick you up at Grand Caribe's pier. Weather otherwise was exceptional on both trips. Multiple restaurants within walking distance with local flavor and very nice ie: Aji. Palapas over the water was a great escape for lunch and the short golf cart trip to town to sample Annie's Pastries or Wild Mango's Restaurant was well worth the time. Diving is "unBelizeable", water is absolutely beautiful and the local residents could not be more caring!!! If you wish to escape the stress of daily life and have a vacation, this Country / Island & Resort should be considered. I have no reason to consider Mexico when my experience in Belize has been so positive.

Room Tip: Our unit H1, was on the first floor, facing the reef and was 2 bedroom, EXCEPTIONAL. Sunrise was wor...

The resort is pure luxury. The view is breathtaking, the service is better than we could have hoped for, the concierge service is top-notch and the room was perfect. We stayed here for 5 days and reserved our room through VRBO. the prices were more reasonable although still VERY expensive but the value is definitely there. Our unit was a one bedroom with a futon in the living room for our daughter. Their was in-room Wi-fi, laundry, fully appointed kitchen and a great soaking tub.

Other reviewers commented on the lack of a full restaurant which is true but the food we got from the pool bar was great and there are so many restaurants within walking distances that we didn't really notice the lack of restaurants. Definitely rent a golf cart for at least a few days to experience the whole island and bring a small flashlight for walking at night.
