Our 3 bedroom penthouse was beautiful. Ocean view with two large decks, one covered. Staff was excellent on arranging groceries to be deliver, delivering bags to our room, arranging golf cart, etc. very efficient. The restaurant is a bar and a point they need to work on. There is good restaurants w/n walking distance and in town as well. There is no fitness center on site and thus another point they need to work on. The pools are quite large and well taken care. The two hot tubs are pathetic. They are only 4 person tubs and that is way too small for a compiles this size. The jets also didnt work properly. The complex isn't quite to the level where you can just hang out there and not leave, so you will need a golf cart or pay the high water taxi fees into town. From our third floor condo, we could see the trash dump across the road from the complex. Belize is an interesting place to have such a beautiful resort next to what looks like an illegal dump. The road to the resort is a dirt/mud path. I suggest Grand Caribe provide water taxi's directly to the complex instead of the adventure on the road.
Pros:
Beautiful complex and rooms
Great staff
Nice man made beach
Cons:
No fitness center
No restaurant
Hot tubs are inadequate
Too far from town to walk
No on site bicycle rental

I spent the Sunday of San Pedro's Lobsterfest at Grand Caribe and Cowboy Doug's Pool Bar and Grill. Despite the tremendous rainstorm that day, I still had a great time! I managed to get a seat at the bar before the rain came down and all the people packed in. I ate the grilled lobster which was awesome! I decided to venture out when the rain quit, to find huge (beer) tent set up - apparently still from a wedding the night before. The name sake himself was there, stamping people's Lobsterfest "passports", making sure all ran smoothly and talking to us "adventurous folks" who would not let a little rain spoil their fun. It was an absolute pleasure getting to chat with Doug while trying to stay dry from the once again down pour of rain. I watched in awe as the staff and Doug himself worked very hard in spite of the weather.
Thanks for making my "Party Like a Lobstar" so much fun! I will be back. :)

I recently went to stay at the Grand Caribe Resort in San Pedro and was very pleased with the room we stayed in. The owner of the condo was friendly and they had done all they could to make our trip enjoyable (which it was).

I do have some issues with this place though… First and foremost was the "restaurant" or swim up bar… The place is called "Cowboy Doug's" and its not too bad at first. The prices are reasonable and the food isn't bad. On our last night at the place the Cowboy Doug himself was there and he tried to take advantage of my wife while I wasn't there! He tried to get her incapacitated in the pool at the swim up bar which is outrages and very dangerous!

Other than Cowboy Doug, the service was very good though.

The other issues I have with this place is the hot tub was WAY to hot to get in one night and way too cold the next night.

The location of this place is not good… It is located 2 miles outside of town which is very inconvenient if/when you want to go to town to do more. You can rent a golf cart but not only is it fairly expensive, there is a toll bridge you have to cross when going to and from the hotel. You can rent bikes as well but be very careful riding at night because the roads going to/from the hotel are unpaved and there are no lights.

I would not recommend staying at this location. The rooms are not enough to make up for all the problems with this place (besides, why stay inside when you are on your vacation?) I think there are better places to stay on that island.

The staff at Grand Caribe is by far the best and most friendly we have experienced in our many travels especially those to the Caribbean. The staff was excellent in helping us book on line They even booked our flight from Belize City to Ambergris Caye. Our room was a 1 bedroom with a view of the ocean. The rooms are excellent and have Wi-Fi in the room and various places around the resort. You can book any activity that you would want to do on site including renting a golf cart to travel around the island (this is the normal means of transportation.) The room was very comfortable with a complete kitchen. There is a restaurant and pool bar on site that is excellent as well called Cowboy Doug's (see reviews). There are 4 different pools and 2 hot tubs to enjoy as well. You don't have to leave the resort if you choose not to. If you like to dive the various dive companies will pick you up right on the Grand Caribe pier. Highly recommend a stay at this place. We would go back in a heart beat!!!

Room Tip: If you need an elevator ask for main building as other buildings do not have elevators. This was no...

Stayed at the Grand Caribe on my recent trip to Belize. It is a great place to stay. We had a one bedroom condo overlooking the pool and beach. Very comfortable room has a full kitchen and sitting area. Two TV's and WI FI in the room. Air condition works real well and ceiling fans also.

Now the complex has one bar/ grill and it is very small. Good food nice proportions but can get very busy. During my stay one bartender and one cook. Now I was there during the off season I guess for a wedding there were 38 of us and we kept them hoping. Room service was call in and go pick up. No other bars or restaurants on property! On day we got groceries and then mad slight snacks during the day. It is near other restaurants and bars short walk north or south on the beach.

I and my wife loved the place and would recommend it to family and friends!

Beautiful property with magnificent views overlooking the pools and the ocean. The staff is great. Nicely appointed rooms and kitchen. Since you are north of San Pedro, the beach was very quiet when we were there in May. You are only a golf cart ride to town for many restaurant options and there are several great options north of the resort.

Room Tip: The views are beautiful on upper floors, but there are no elevators.
