Beautiful Condo; Great Resort
"Pros: the condo is extremely comfortable and right on the beach. Sitting on the front porch overlooking the water sipping coffee or cocktails was a great treat. The internet was amazingly fast (i was able to stream videos at night). Overall the condo is modern, comfortably decorated, AC worked excellently, and daily maid service was a great bonus. I stayed at the resort by myself and felt extremely safe (one note: the front door does not have a peep hole). As for the resort itself I only have wonderful things to say. The staff were very helpful, professional, and friendly. I booked all my outings for snorkel through the concierge and it was an absolute breeze. I was also able to order fresh water through the front desk which was a nice bonus to not have to worry about getting it from town. The pools are all very nice with plenty of space to stretch out and order a mai tai. Prices are typical resort prices for drinks and food at the resort but there are some other restaurants up and down the beach from there with various price points. Overall I had a wonderful time at Grand Caribe and would stay in Mike's condo again in a heart beat.
Cons: when I was there in August 2015 there was a lot of construction going on next door. As an early riser by nature it didn't bother me but if you're looking to sleep in I would check to see if it is still on going. That sea grass thing is no joke in terms of odor. I realize that's not the resorts fault and maybe shouldn't be a 'con' but the smell is strong and because the condo is on the beach can slightly infiltrate into the apartment. In conjunction to that because the resort is tackling this issue with ongoing gusto there are guys out every morning raking the weed up and putting it into wheel barrows and since I was alone I was uncomfortable sitting on the porch while they were out there which usually ran from 7 am to noon. Also, there is a breezeway next to the condo that is a common walkway so you will see a lot of people walk through and the day workers who clean up the seaweed camp out there while they take breaks and drink water."

"I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that we had such a wonderful time at your Ambergris Caye vacation home, Casa Amarillo. What a beautiful place! We just got home late last night, and we all wish we could have spent more time there. I would definitely recommend your lovely home to anyone thinking of visiting the island. There were 6 in our family and we rented both floors. Worked out perfectly. We had our 4 boys (late teens, early 20's) on the first floor, and my husband & I had the second floor to ourselves. The people on the island are extremely friendly, and the views are simply breathtaking. Robert & Marfa were wonderful and very warm and friendly. They were there to help us out anytime we needed anything, which was such a relief for us. Just knowing they were there helped us all to relax and enjoy everything. Marfa's salsa was delicious & we requested it several times. Robert's sister even came to the house to do corn row braids on my son's hair. And when our golf carts had some issues with a broken part, Robert was right there to get them replaced immediately. Robert keeps the property looking beautiful, especially the pool. The pool was sparkling and clean every single day. You certainly have a winning team to take care of the home and grounds! They helped everything to run smoothly so that we could kick back & relax.
Thank you again for opening your home to visitors. Our boys had a great time, and there was good family bonding time. We did a snorkeling trip & fishing/lunch trip with your neighbor's guide service. Eddie & Edgar were great, and very friendly. My boys got to spear lobster, which they then cooked up in an unbelievably delicious lunch for us on a private beach. We saw a nurse shark, sting ray and crocodile right off the house's dock! (That was awesome!) We visited the Mayan ruins at the south end, and explored all the way up to the north end of the island. Wanted to do more, but we just ran out of time. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there!
Kathy, Brad & boys"

"My wife and I have been lucky enough to stay here several times. Each time the experience gets better and better. The condo itself is nicely decorated with a gorgeous patio that has a central view of the pool and the ocean. We love to wake up early and watch the sunrise with coffee. We have also spent many nights on the patio playing cards and enjoying the time with friends and family.
As far as the complex itself, you couldn't ask for much more. The pools are great, the beach can be seen from the balcony, and the pool bar has refreshing drinks (I'd recommend the Dirty Bananas) and excellent service. I enjoy reading by the pool or on the beach. When it's time for some adventure, we love to go scuba diving. We both got our PADI certifications here a couple of years ago and have since enjoyed some of the best reef diving you can find. For any divers, the Blue Hole is definitely worth checking out. And, although the diving is amazing, we have snorkeled off the dock, fished both inside and outside the reef, rented a small boat to take us sight seeing and snorkeling, and traveled to the main land to experience the zip lines and cave tubing. Every experience has been perfect!
The restaurants and food options in the area are great. Grand Caribe has recently added a new roof top restaurant that is very nice and offers good food and some beautiful views. Farther down the beach is Ahi, one of our favorites. It is very romantic with the lights strung through the trees and the stars in the night sky. The food there is delicious. There are other options and all have been good. Many of the places will send a boat to pick you up if you need a lift. Also, the condo has a good kitchen and there are grocery stores that aren't too far if you'd rather stay in and cook.
If you're considering a trip to Belize, this place is one of the best! We always want to stay longer and can't wait to come back."

"We (a cold Alaskan couple and a chilled Minnesota couple) had a great stay in the upstairs apartment at Casa Caracol! Phil came through with all the things he advertised. He had kayaks for us to use and we had a blast kayaking. My brother and I used them to go out to the reef. It was fun and we found muscles we hadn't used in a while (although, I think I pulled a fat instead of a muscle). Phil also set us up with a day of fishing, a wonderful boat trip to the Mayan Ruins, and a great half day of snorkeling at Hol Chan and Shark and Ray Alley. The rental is walking distance to a well stocked grocery, fresh produce stands, a wonder full bakery, and all the local shopping you want.
The upstairs was perfect for the four of us. Two bedroom each with their own bathrooms with showers. A beautiful well stocked kitchen which we used a ton. The deck has a great view of the reef and is a great place to relax no matter what part of the day it is. He has a housekeeper come in every couple days and she does an amazing job!!! It was so nice having a week to not worry about anything and just relax.
We had a wonderful time and Phil took all the details out of it for us. At the end of our stay, we had one credit card bill to him which included all the day excursions he booked for us and he didn't add on penny for his time and effort to set them up. He is a great guy and was wonderful to work with. We recommend him and Casa Caracol highly."
