About Jack & Janie Bard

Jack and Janie live in beautiful Colorado where both sun and snow are plentiful. We enjoy skiing in the majestic Rocky Mountains and going for leisurely hikes. We fell in love with Belize on our first trip to Ambergris Caye and now are the proud owners of our very own Caribbean Home - Casa de la Caribe. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Jack & Janie Bard purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jack & Janie Bard chose Ambergris Caye

We chose to buy at the Grand Caribe because it is a first class, five star resort. The resort has earned top ratings by Travelers' Choice Trip Advisor for several years in a row. Our unit (C6) is spacious and has a fantastic view of the Caribbean. We liked that it was in a more tranquil part of the island yet close to town. It is a totally relaxing place to escape to!

What makes this condo unique

Grand Caribe is the perfect location for those who like peace and tranquility with all the benefits of a first class resort yet close enough to the hustle and bustle of downtown San Pedro when the mood strikes. The private beach, the beautiful pools, the crystal blue sea, the horseshoe layout of the buildings where everyone has a spectacular view, all makes this place special. Grand Caribe has everything you need and can make all the arrangements for you to experience the best that Belize has to offer.

Wonderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic trip. We loved staying at the Grand Caribe and Janie could not have been more helpful. The staff at the resort was wonderful - we booked several trips with them. Highly recommend Hol Chan Channel and Shark Ray Alley and Mexico Rocks. We also did a "semi-private" tour with Tuff E Nuff to swim with the Manatees. What graceful creatures. Candy Man and Peppa from Tuff E Nuff were fantastic

The condo is very comfortable and stocked with everything you need - including beach bags. We swam and snorkeled at the end of the pier where we saw a ton of fish including 2 lionfish. We enjoyed making dinner and eating on the covered patio. Luckily the air conditioning works very well - it is hot in Belize but there was always a cool place to retreat to. The pool was amazing. It was great to have a fully stocked condo with all the amenities of a hotel.

Will be booking again - thanks again Janie for all of your suggestions. We loved Palapa Bar (got to see barracudas and rays once it got dark). Also Rojos was cool - great location (not easy to find but worth the effort). Also recommend renting a golf cart. We went to "Secret Beach" three times - don't go on Sunday, but most other days are quiet.

Very comfortable stay and very impressed with all the amenities and help that Janie provided.

Beautiful resort and great Staff.

  • 5 of 5

The Grand Caribe is a beautiful resort. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Since we traveled with another couple, the 2 master suites were perfect in this condo. Everything we needed was provided. We would definitely stay in this unit again. We booked several trips through the concierge. The Mainland 3 in 1 combo tour, which was a long day, but very worth it. And the half day snorkeling Hol Chan & Shark Ray Alley. Very fun, and as promised, saw Rays, nurse sharks, fish, turtles....beautiful. We took the ferry from San Pedro and spent a day at Caye Caulker. We totally walked that small Island. Good food, shopping, and very laid back atmosphere. We rented kayaks and snorkeled at the reef right in front of the resort. Wish we would have done that several more times. Also, we rented a golf cart from the resort for our entire stay. It's the best way to get around San Pedro. We went into San Pedro town every day. In San Pedro town, some of our favorite restaurants/hang out spots were Pupuseria Salvadoreno, Elvi's Kitchen, and the Palapa Bar and Grill. South of San Pedro town, Hidden Treasures (very good) and Black Orchid. By Grand Caribe and walking distance, Rain Restaurant, Aji Tapa Bar and Restaurant, The Truck Stop (limited days, fun place to grab a drink), Ak'bol Yoga Retreat (ate lunch/breakfast there several times), Stella's (single item menu for dinner). Also on the North end is Portofino. Beautiful location and good food. So many restaurants, so little time. One word of caution....BRING BUG SPRAY, you will need it!
