“Exceeded Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

My wife and I with our our 3 children ( 15,13,11 ) spent 1 week at Grand Caribe for our spring break. The resort is immaculate, the housekeeping and laundry is first rate,same as the grounds keeping, There is pride evident in the way the workers care for the property and for their individual jobs.Front desk and concierge could not be more helpful.They organized our pickup and return to airport our golf cart rental and all our tours. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Our condo was awesome, granite counter tops, high end appliances and all the comforts of home.We ate all over the island and could not find a bad meal. We simply used the restaurant reviews of all the previous visitors. We had equally great experiences with the fishing , scuba and snorkeling trips.We could not find anything to complain about, Grand Caribe is a home run.

Room Tip: all rooms have great views from what we could see , one tip , pack very light and then only take hal...

Our family, my sister and boyfriend and mother and friend (6 adults and 2 kids) traveled last week of March 2013 to Grande Caribe. We had a great time and the staff was pleasant, friendly and helpful. We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite for 7 nights - this unit had great space, sparklingly clean and the amenities were excellent and the daily laundry service was awesome. The pool was excellent and beach was suitable. The bar food and service was good -- nice work by Ingrid and Chi taking care of us. The only improvement I shared - was larger pool umbrellas, small tables next to lounge chairs. Recommend (and we did) bring small set of snacks (chips, salsa, potato chips, PB&J, bags of cereal, etc.) to help curb appetites, quick breakfast in the morning, snacks at the pool, etc. Additionally, make a trip to the store for beer, milk, bread, and some other key necessities, The only thing to think about - is this resort is 2 miles north of downtown and you will need to rent a golf cart if you want to go downtown for dinner every night OR spend the $20 USD taxi ride each way -- we used Aby's Taxi (he was excellent). As for the rating, honestly, don't know if there was a fitness facility, I ran on the beach and road. For kids' activities there wasn't much, but we snorkeled off the beach and spent the day in the pool. Other than that...great trip would go back in a minute.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor so we had to go up two flights of stairs...not a big deal for us.

I have stayed at Grand Caribe various times over the past 3 years with my infant daughter and cannot find anything to complain about. The staff are all very friendly, helpful and accommodating (which in my opinion is not fake warmth put on as a show merely for guests, as I have come to appreciate that Belizean people are generally quite friendly by nature, but this cultural trait is of course well applied and appreciated when it comes to the tourism industry). They even arranged an Easter Egg hunt for all the children who stayed over the Easter weekend.

The resort would be specifically attractive to families based on their large rooms, expansive multi-level pool area (which as far as I understand may even be the biggest in San Pedro and Ambergris Caye) with small fountain in the children's area and waterfall, beachfront location, facilitated transfer services to and from the airport (they arrange taxis and inland flights upon request), on hand ancillary services (they can arrange golf carts for those who wish to venture out of the resort and diving/snorkeling/fishing/sea excursions - facilitated by their onsite pier), and onsite pool bar & restaurant service (which can also be used for room service).

The resort is located in Northern Ambergris Caye which is away from the bustling activity and nightlife of the Main San Pedro town. This tends to make it nice, quiet and private, ideal for families and couples.

The condo/property are excellent-- even better than I expected after reading the positive reviews. Brand new, top line apartments, nice beds, tons of towels, laundry service and friendly (if not always super-fast) service at the front desk and the bar/restaurant. It was perfect for our family with young kids who had just come from a more rustic Beliezean jungle lodge. We liked it, but if you want and island experiance, it doesn't have much local character-- just sun, pools, comfort and the best carribean breezes!

Grand Caribe Resort was the best choice for our family vacations. As previous guest have said, the staff was welcoming, nice and very helpful, from the front desk to the cleaning service, everybody seemed to be happy to help you and never denied any of our requests. We stayed at a 2BR Condo (H1), had an amazing ocean view and were pleased by the condo itself: Caribbean decoration, everything super clean, modern and spacious rooms, beautiful bathrooms... everything was perfect.
We will come back for sure... you guys have impressed me in every single way!!

Nice property, modern with large, multiroom condos. We had a 2BR, full kitchen with 3 TVs and wifi. Nice large pool, helpful staff at front desk, activities and transportation. Boats for snorkeling etc pick up right at dock. But that said, a number of negatives (but none overwhelming):
- Property is pretty far out of town, not within easy walking distance to any markets/etc.
- Like some big hotels (which we were hoping to avoid), the pool facilities are crowded - e.g. all the louge chairs are taken by early am.
- Restaurant in the hotel was horrible. Took over 1 hour to get our lunch and then it was pretty bad. Hotel did comp it.
Bottom line, we liked our stay but would choose somewhere else if we came again.

We have rented several condos in various tropical destinations and this one was more than we had previously experienced or expected. We thought it was an excellent value for the price and the entire property was in top condition... it was like brand new. We were told that it was built about four years ago. The staff was very friendly and helpful... they treated us like we were family… I’m not kidding.

The condo itself (unit C-4) was larger than expected, had a great floor plan, large kitchen and bath spaces and a great view of the pool area and the ocean from the balcony. We used the kitchen to prepare about half of our meals and found everything we needed as far as cookware, utensils and kitchen gadgets. Though they sell bottled water in the lobby, I drank the filtered water and used the ice from the door of the full size refrigerator and had no problems.

My wife and I are quite particular about the cleanliness of the rooms when we travel. The maids here are fantastic and this is probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed. When we were out on the balcony in the morning we could see the maids collecting blossoms from plants around the property and later in the day find these same blossoms strategically placed inside the condo. Nice touch.
