Your Dream Belize Vacation Starts at This Beachy Ambergris Caye Resort  

by Larry Waight

Belize’s largest island is also one of its most popular, and with good reason. Ambergris Caye is positioned just 35 miles from the airport hub of Belize City, and it more importantly sits less than a mile from the Belize Barrier Reef. Whether you’re looking for rest and relaxation or adventure out on the open waters, Ambergris Caye and the town of San Pedro are ready to serve up exactly what you ordered. But being a tourist haven means that there are countless resorts and hotels of varying quality vying for your attention. You can just bypass them. Grand Caribe Belize offers a luxury experience where you can chart your own course. Here’s what you can expect during your stay. 

Luxury Condos in Paradise 

Whether you’re exploring the Caribbean on a solo diving trip, trying to reconnect with friends or family somewhere secluded, or simply spend some time with the person you love, there’s a room just your size at Grand Caribe. Studio and one bedroom condos offer affordable prices that will make you adjust your expectations regarding the cost of paradise — or you can rent out the massive five bedroom beachfront villa is you really want the best view and the most space on the property. No matter what size room you choose, you’ll be treated to beautiful and accessible views of the ocean and interior design sensibilities designed to make you feel at home. 

Varied Cuisine, Consistent Quality 

Many resorts offer a restaurant on-site, but few offer the sheer amount of variety on their property that Grand Caribe does. The resort is home to three restaurants, and they offer experiences suited for everything from a quick bite to a formal and romantic dinner.

Chomp on burgers or sandwiches without even having to leave the water at GC Pool Bar, enjoy high-class pan-Asian cuisine fused with fresh seafood pulled from the Caribbean Sea at Aqua, or sample the creative fine dining at Rain. The property is also home to the Beach Basket: a fully stocked grocery that can keep you equipped with the snacks and refreshments you need. 

Self Care Comes First 

Vacation is a time to rest and recuperate, so why not take advantages of professionals who can help you with just that? The Spa & Salon at Grand Caribe is staffed by gifted masseuses offering a wide range of packages. Get a deep tissue massage to help relax your sore muscles after a session at the fitness center, or top off your visit at the spa with full hair, nail, and makeup treatments at the salon. Even in the unlikely event of a medical emergency, you can get all the treatment you need on-site thanks to the urgent care center attached to the same building as the spa.

The most immediate appeal of Ambergris Caye comes from how close it is to the Belize Barrier Reef — and Grand Caribe is positioned to help you make the most of your time on the Caribbean Sea. Grand Caribe maintains a full team of adventure staff who can help you plan an afternoon excursion or a packed itinerary for your full stay. Snorkeling, sailing, fishing, and diving are all popular choices for tourists, but the range of opportunities that Grand Caribe offers on the waters is unparalleled. From night dives at Hol Chan Reserve to seasonal fishing opportunities on the reef or closer to the shore, the local staff have a wealth of tools at their disposal.

Adventure opportunities extend to the mainland as well. Belize is home to some of the most intact ruins left from the enigmatic Maya Empire, but it’s also a naturally rich environment that’s perfect for outdoor adventures like cave tubing, zip lining, and spelunking. The staff at Grand Caribe can even help you book a helicopter so you can see the region in all of its natural glory. Or if you’d rather stay close to home and just enjoy where you are, you can always rent a golf cart and explore Ambergris Caye at your own pace. The staff will be right there to provide you with as much or as little help as you desire. 

Suited For Any Special Event

But whether you’re planning your dream wedding, a business conference and retreat, or a simple getaway by yourself, you’ll get the same level of devoted care from the helpful staff at Grand Caribe Belize.
