THE RESORT:

Grand Caribe is a 5 star resort community that offers all the modern amenities discriminating travelers expect today. It has consistently been rated as a leading resort in Belize and Central America . Unlike other resorts on the island, Grand Caribe has its own diesel powered generators to ensure guests never go without power due to weather or other unforeseeable circumstances. It also has a reverse osmosis water storage system .

The resort is located less than 2 miles from San Pedro Town and is perfectly situated on the Caribbean Sea with over 650 feet of white-sand beach. Grand Caribe has the largest fresh water pool in Belize and a swim up bar. Two smaller pools and hot tubs compliment the well-manicured, tropical grounds. Food and drink service is available as you relax by the pool. There is a private beach and pier where you can swim or fish. Water taxis stop at the pier regularly to whisk you into town or you can rent a golf cart directly from the resort. For your dining pleasure, EVOO Restaurant and Rain Rooftop Terrace are conveniently located on the premises where you can enjoy extraordinary cuisine creations prepared by international chef Hugo Myer. Or call for room service! For you exercise gurus, there is a Fitness Center with state of the art equipment that includes treadmills, elliptical machines, recumbent bike, universal weight lifting machine, free weights and more in the same building as Rain Restaurant. The Beach Basket is a fully stocked convenience store featuring groceries, liquor, beer, wine, and household necessities (also in the Rain Restaurant building) that will deliver provisions to the unit prior to your arrival. You literally never have to leave the premises!

THE ISLAND:

Ambergris Caye, named Mexico & Central America’s Leading Destination for 2015 and 2016, is the best location in Belize to vacation and relax. The island is 25 miles long, is located Northeast of the mainland, and accessible by water taxi (1 1/2 hours) or a 15 minute plane ride. Only 1/2 mile from the Barrier Reef, the largest barrier reef in the Northern Hemisphere, Ambergris Caye is a top destination for scuba divers and snorkelers. The island offers a wide variety of water-oriented activities – swimming, fishing, sailing, windsurfing, and jet-skiing – as well as nature hiking, bird-watching, bicycling and even a small Mayan ruin site on the island. There is a multitude of dive shops and adventure tour companies that offer complimentary pick up at Grand Caribe's pier. On Ambergris Caye is the town of San Pedro which boasts great food, shopping and a laid back atmosphere. The people are friendly and helpful everywhere you go. Golf carts and bicycles are the primary modes of transportation, making sightseeing a part of each excursion! For more information check out this website: http://ambergriscaye.com

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 a beautiful 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 San Pedro

We chose to buy at the Grand Caribe because it is a first class, five star resort. It is well built and well maintained by one of the top developers in Belize and has a superb staff. Our unit (C6) is spacious and has a fantastic view of the Caribbean. We like the tranquility of the north part of the island yet the resort is so close to town. The staff is amazing. The grounds are beautiful. The amenities are first class.

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 make 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

They greet you with a cold towel and drink... after stopping at two HOT and humid airports and realize you're not in Kansas anymore. It was a nice greeting to say the least. We were checked in quickly, an employee gave us a quick tour of the grounds and brought us to our room, they will also deliver your luggage so you're not hauling it all over the grounds. Which brings me to the grounds... they're beautiful and well cared for. There are enough pools that you can get away from a crowd (if there ever is one) most of the time you could have a pool all to yourself. The rooms are also beautiful, well equipped if you want to do your own cooking (we never did, it seems to be more of a hassle and just as expensive as eating out). We stayed in C6, great view, although don't expect to spend a whole lot of time in your room when you're in such a beautiful place. Oh... and we totally took advantage of the complimentary laundry service... and had a heck of a lot less clothes to wash when we got home! The best restaurants we found nearby was probably the Tiki Bar (old Palapa Bar) its inexpensive, not crowded and sits over the water just south of the Grand Caribe... other favorite was the Truck Stop, you'll see it on your way to the Grand Caribe on the left side.... its awesome, good food, drinks and ice cream, great t-shirts if you're looking for a souvenir and just an all round great place to hang out, watch the sign for fun activities to do on different nights.

Great spot, close to pool, store, lobby and golf cart parking.

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was a great experience. This is a 2nd floor condo. Where it is located makes it a very short walk to the lobby to get towels or schedule excursions with the concierge. It is a short walk to the golf cart parking area. It was pretty close to the main pool, but up a level and not right on top of everything so you felt like you still had privacy. Really it is a great compromise location with good views. While it was not direct on the ocean front...the view was still great and we found ourselves by the pool most of the time anyway or on excursions.

Every other trip we have had to any island, our first stop was to the grocery store. We had the groceries delivered and it was all right there when we arrived. It was a HUGE time saver and relief. No other way to do it now. So after a long trip...we grabbed a snack and our first stop was the pool instead. Within 2 minutes of arrival you have a super attentive staff seeing to your food and drink needs. No sooner would you set an empty cup down when another was on the way.

Maid service was over the top. In fact...we're more likely to turn staff away. We're used to using towels over at home...but if we were by the pool, they were in and out before we knew. Fresh towels, cleaned, supplies stocked. We wanted for nothing.

Excursions. We handled everything through the concierge desk. They booked our golf cart, Mayan ruins trip and two days of scuba. Once we got the ticket from them, we just reported to the dock at the proper time where we were shuttled to the proper location. The most chaos we had, was on one scuba trip where they had multiple boats going out and we had snorkelers and scuba at the same time a two tank boat was going out. So it was a bit chaotic, but that was not the fault of Grand Caribe.

All in all a great condo location, great resort. I highly recommend the golf cart rental for the stay. We thought we would get it for a few days once we got there, but they were sold out. While locations are walkable...with cars and bikes and mopeds and golf carts on family narrow streets, we felt safer in a golf cart than on foot.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in C6 at Grand Caribe. The apartment was very comfortable for our family of 5. The resort is top notch. The pools are sparkling clean and it was wonderful to have daily housekeeping who even did our laundry. The views and weather were amazing. Thank you Janie and Jack!

I have used VRBO many times and this property did not disappoint! A wonderful touch is the laundry being done everyday. The location is great to town and to closer restaurants and bars. Front desk is very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 6 days in paradise. Casa de la Caribe was perfect - wonderful view, comfortable beds, clean, TV (if you wanted) and every amenity you could possibly need. From the moment we arrived at the airport in Belize City we were taken care of - met at the airport by Nancy who made sure we knew what to do and had a taxi waiting to take us to the resort upon arrival in San Pedro. We had an exceptional trip and accommodations. An absolute wonderful location and condo! Our thanks to Janie and Jack Bard for sharing their wonderful home.
