Two Pools, One Waterfront Destination: Sunset Caribe

by Carolee Chanona

It won’t come as a surprise Ambergris Caye is home to countless amazing hotels and resorts. After all, ‘La Isla Bonita’ is hugely popular as Belize’s most-visited destination in the country. But right on the edge of the island’s main metro area of San Pedro Town is its latest expansion: Caribeville’s Phase 2 of Sunset Caribe. A 10-minute drive two miles north gets you to prime waterfront views on the bay,  two pools (including one with a new swim-up pool bar), a beautiful lobby, gym, restaurant and bar, and so much more.  

Sunset Caribe: Stay A While

Anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to live in one of the waterfront condos shooting up in the last few years on Ambergris Caye should check into Sunset Caribe, the sister resort of Grand Caribe inside Caribeville. The views over the Ambergris Caye lagoonside bay from the 6-floor tower are sweeping and include a setting sun reflecting on two pools and a jacuzzi. Take it all in with a sundowner on your private balcony, or even from a kayak. 

Interiors range from one-bedroom cabana lofts to three-bedroom suites that foster a residential feel—fitting, considering Sunset Caribe even offers the option to own. All contain a full kitchen, a washer/dryer, and contemporary furniture in an overall blue and white color scheme that’s coastally neutral. In fact, the hotel is practically brand new considering Phase 2 launched in Quarter 2 of 2023, with Phase 1 launched in Quarter 1 of 2021. 

Easily, Sunset Caribe is already a magnet for anyone who wants to be close to the multitude of amenities and activities in San Pedro Town, without sacrificing the privacy of being out of sight on the bayside waterfront. It’s also an easy base camp for water-related activities like sailing and snorkeling the world’s second-largest reef that lies just offshore of this Belize island. You’re also now a part of Caribeville’s Population of Happy, counting your state of beach bliss and not residents, where Grand Caribe brags six pools, three onsite restaurants and bars, a medical clinic, a spa, and even a convenience store, right across the street.
