About Doug Johnston

Hello! We are Doug and Barbara Johnston and our “main” home is in Bakersfield, California. At every opportunity, we escape to the peace and relaxation we have in our 'Island Home' at Grand Caribe! We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.

Doug Johnston purchased this condo in 2015

Why Doug Johnston chose San Pedro

During the many years we’ve traveled abroad, we always kept an eye open for a “getaway place” to enjoy and perhaps even live one day. A laid back place that was slow and relaxed and yet one that offered a variety of activities that would keep things fresh and exciting. On our most recent trip to Belize and Ambergris Caye - with its beautiful azure water, the closeness of the reef, and the warm, friendly people – we knew we found the perfect destination. Other pluses….the official language is English and the US dollar is accepted everywhere.

When we first saw the Grand Caribe Belize Resort, it was all over. We'd found a high-end resort that was easily accessible to the Town of San Pedro and yet far enough away to retain it’s exclusivity, yes….we knew this was the right place….the little piece of paradise that we could call our own! Massive and stunningly impressive with it's Mediterranean style of architecture, Grand Caribe is perfectly situated at the water's edge in a master site plan that embraces a lush tropical courtyard, with each residence offering spectacular unobstructed views of the Caribbean and Barrier Reef just beyond. The spacious residences are designed and appointed with discerning travelers in mind and offer every luxury one could imagine.

We bought and we’ve not had one regret!

What makes this condo unique

Lets start with the unobstructed view from our balcony of the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean........spectacular and mesmerizing! The serenity and seclusion of Grand Caribe's location on the north side of the cut...makes for a perfect romantic 'hideaway.' Need more interaction or to see friendly faces? You can start with our 'swim-up' pool bar. We are also perfectly located within walking distance of a variety of excellent restaurants, a yoga retreat, and the famous Palapa Bar. The Grand Caribe staff is always ready to make any wish you have come true--whether it is arranging a trip to the mainland, making a restaurant reservation, a snorkeling or diving trip, or even an in-room massage. By golf cart, water taxi or regular taxi, Grand Caribe is a short ride away from the 'hustle and bustle' of San Pedro Town and its many restaurants, bars and unique shops. A boat ride up north takes you to more world-class dining and beautiful scenery. At Grand Caribe you are in the center of everything – starting with the romantic serenity of our Grand Caribe home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just got back from our trip to Belize with some friends and felt I had to write a review on our on our wonderful stay in unit C4 of Grand Caribe. We've travelled a lot and rented many condos and homes. I'd say this condo is probably the most comfortable and beautiful one I've seen. The condo had absolutely everything we needed with a magnificent view. Pure luxury!

Although we hardly used it, there is a TV in every room. The kitchen is equipped with the most modern appliances, utensils etc., and a safe where we stored our valuables was also available. The best is the room and laundry service - so wonderful to come back to a spotlessly clean condo. My husband caught fish off the end of the jetty as well as a fishing trip and we enjoyed so many meals around the table with our friends who shared the condo with us.

The staff at Grand Caribe are amazing. We organized tours with the desk downstairs and they chose the best of the best to take us out on our snorkeling and fishing trips. When not touring the Island or going out on a trip, we spent time around the pool with it's fabulous swim up bar. Everything from the condo to the service was top notch. We enjoyed a meal at Capricorn, went to the Palapa Bar hanging over the ocean and had custard ice-cream in town as well as many other outings. The best was our snorkeling trip with "Candyman" from Tuff E Nuff tours.

It was all spectacular.

Very nice property, lots of amenities, great location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a very nice stay at the Grand Caribe. We went in July so it was not very busy. I was disappointed at the construction the the community was doing right outside our unit. I wish we had been told that prior to the stay, as my children's window faced the new addition the Grand Caribe was adding.The person showing us our room said it had been going on for some time and they begin at 8am.

I found the front desk staff to be exceptional. The complimentary laundry was such a nice luxury and the food at EVOO was lovely for a family of vegetarians. I did not find the Concierge staff to be as helpful. I booked one tour myself prior to coming but I think the prices were comparable if Grand Caribe had booked it. Our Mexican Rocks snorkeling tour provided pick-up directly from the dock at the resort.

While seaweed is an island wide problem, the staff worked very hard to create a beach area by creating a barrier for a small beach and removing the seaweed as much as they could. The Secret Beach was a manageable Golf Cart ride.

The nice things is that the Grand Caribe is located close enough to town that you can head down for dinner or walk around and find lovely bars, coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance. Some resorts were very isolated.

The unit was clean and very nicely decorated. We had a very nice stay.

Thank you,

Our stay at Grand Caribe was more than we hoped for; we've been coming to Belize for many years and the service we received was 5stars and better than any other place we've stayed in the past! All the staff at Grand Caribe were very nice and professional and the Restaurants were very good. We will be back.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded our expectations! The Condo was clean, well maintained and modern. There was daily maid service, and full access to the Grand Caribe amenities. The staff at Grand Carib was very helpful in getting our excursions booked and answering questions about the area. We enjoyed having coffee on the balcony with it's beautiful views, and we had the best beach front in the entire area! There are many restaurants within walking distance as well. We will definitely return!

Nearest Airport
2 Miles
San Pedro Air Strip
Car: not necessary

Grand Caribe is located only 1 1/2 miles north of San Pedro Town and sits directly on the Caribbean! Just 300 meters off shore is Belize's Barrier Reef, the largest in the Western Hemisphere. The area just north of the 'bridge/cut' has long been known as the tranquil side of the island. It is quiet and more relaxing, yet you are very close to town by either, golf cart, biking or even walking. There are many fine restaurants....all within walking distance.

Grand Caribe is an exclusive resort and our helpful and friendly staff can arrange for ANY tour, mainland excursion, fishing expedition, beauty or spa service, boat taxi, reservations....they can even have your unit provisioned with food upon your arrival! Treat yourself to the Grand Caribe experience!
