Recent Ambergris Caye reviews
"Our family of 4 just returned from a one week stay in this unit. We absolutely loved everything about it and thought that our choice of this unit and resort really made the trip the very best. The unit itself is exactly as shown in the photos, although I think it is more spacious than the photos show. Both bedrooms are nice sizes and there is plenty of storage in the bedrooms and bathrooms as well as high quality linens. The kitchen is huge and was by far the best equipped kitchen we have ever had in a vrbo. There were tons of beach towels which we really appreciated. Only slight drawback for us would be that the beds were not especially comfortable - but we think that's typical for Central America and also a matter of preference. It would not keep us from staying again. It is a first floor unit and we loved the convenience (most buildings don't have elevators). It is well located in the resort - convenient to the pools, dock, restaurant, the front office, and the golf cart parking. Daily housekeeping was very nice. The resort itself is unbelievably amazing and after exploring the island over the week stay, we agree that it is the best on the island. Further north the roads get bad and it would have to make getting places more difficult. In town is too congested and not relaxing. Grand Caribe is just far enough away to offer a relaxing atmosphere but convenient enough that you can get to town easily. There is even a convenience/grocery store before the bridge that we used several times. The resort pools are beautiful, the beach/ocean views outstanding. The resort staff impressed us with their friendliness and service. Everything was efficient from check-in to check-out. The resort connected us with great tour providers also. We truly had everything we could have asked for. Some things that may be helpful to future guests: The condo provides toilet paper and toiletry items such as soap, shampoo/conditioner, lotion. Trash bags, dishwasher soap were also provided. These aren't always offered in vrbo rentals. There is a safe in the master bedroom BUT it is very small. It will hold passports, wallets, and smart phones, but it will not fit an ipad or certainly not a laptop. The Wi-Fi worked well and my teens were thankful! The owner was extremely helpful, responsive, etc. We would absolutely stay in this unit again - which we hope to do often now that we've discovered such a great place!"Guest: 4jack Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 28, 2014View listing
"My husband and I stayed here for an early honeymoon. The condo and its view were spectacular. Everything was immaculate and the customer service is top notch. EVERYONE at the Resort was so friendly and attentive. We did not take adventures (although they were available to us) but rather relaxed at the pool."Guest: Ann Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 18, 2014View listing
"The Palm House is an amazing house located in the most gorgeous beach with a reef just off shore. The house is beautifully appointed, decorated and layed out in the most convenient way. Each bedroom is very large and has a beautiful and large private bath. The living area easily and comfortably held the 6 of us and more, if needed. Being an open concept living area we could relax, use the kitchen and dining area while enjoying each other. The gourmet kitchen had everything we needed to cook and we used the outside grill located under gorgeous palm trees overlooking the beach and aquamarine water. The large dining table, overlooking the pool and beach, was the perfect place to enjoy a few fabulously fresh ethnic meals that a wonderful local chef and her daughter prepared for us. Palm trees, white sand beaches, lush grass and landscaping add another element which makes Palm House a top property. We spent many hours relaxing, reading, laughing, enjoying Pina Coladas by the pool using the most comfortable pool furniture. The house is also equipped with bikes and kayaks which add to the fun. To make the week more perfect are the property managers and house keeping staff which are more than eager to make the vacation unforgettable. The house is perfectly managed, decorated, and maintained inside and out. The town is a fun and relaxed where we found the people to be very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed several restaurants with great food. Using our golf cart, we explored the island and town. We snorkeled a few days seeing a rich variety of marine life, bone fished, and had catamaran adventure including the most fabulous beach picnic with totally fresh seafood. Our family had the most fun week in a gorgeous property in a location which is like paradise. Thanks so much to the owners for providing a perfect home."Guest: PJTraveler Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 25, 2014View listing
"Well we just got back from a 7 day stay in this amazing home. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Orlando was a great, real friendly and helpful. We went with one other couple and everyone agrees it was the best vacation they have had. I highly recommend staying at this house, Kelli and Rob are a pleasure to deal with, very prompt and professional service. We booked a sailing and snorkel trip through Seaduced which picked us up right at the Palapa bar then took us to town where we got on a catamaran then we sailed to Hol Chan Marine Reserve and did some snorkelling then off to Shark and Ray Alley where we swam with sharks and rays then we sailed to Caye Caulker where we explored the island for 2 hours and had lunch. We then jumped back on the boat and sailed back to San Pedro. Another great thing to do is rent some bicycles and head north or south (we did both) and just explore. It was an unforgettable time, we are already thinking about going back!"Guest: Marklar Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 6, 2014View listing
