"Oh we did arrive in Paradise! What a fantastic home away from home the four of us just experienced staying at Grand Caribe. Such a beautiful condo! Once at the resort, check in was a breeze, just like the beautiful tropical breeze you always feel while at Grand Caribe. The condo itself it so beautiful. I love the ocean, so this was a perfect condo for me. The decorating is so well thought out and detailed. Just a beautiful ocean feel condo; from the artwork, the photos, the seashells, etc. And the view is to die for; you have the pool and ocean right out your windows. Such a magical feeling when you walked in. The “Nancification” in this condo is magnificent! When we awoke, WOW, is all we could say with the view of the Grand Caribe grounds, the pool, the ocean, it was just great to sit back and take it all in from the patio. After breakfast at the wonderful restaurant on the beach (walking distance) “Aji” we of course had to check out the pool at the Grand Caribe. Beautiful pool with swim up bar. The staff at Grand Caribe couldn’t be more pleasant. They knew you by first name after the first day. Everyone on the island is so very friendly. There was plenty to do right from the resort. The owner and staff at the resort, gave us such great tips of things to do while we were there, it made it so simple to sit back and just enjoy! We went fishing, snorkeling at Hol Chan one day (highly recommend this), went on a sunset cruise, and took an aerial tour of the Blue Hole. AlAll were outstanding excursions. As far as just some of the restaurants we had time to check out were right up the beach at Aji, Lazy Croc, and one of our favorites, the Palapa Bar out over the ocean with inner tubes to relax in while you are enjoying your favorite beverage. The island is definitely on island time, which is perfect for you while on vacation. So if you are looking for a great vacation home to kick back and relax, or have an excursion booked every day during your stay, you are coming to the right place. You can be as busy as you want or as lazy as you want. You “better Belize” you will definitely not be disappointed in booking this beautiful condo. The Grand CaCaribe is also just opening a new building that holds a rooftop lounge and 5 star restaurant.So don’t wait or wonder any longer, book this condo as soon as possible so you too can enjoy the beautiful island of San Pedro and this amazing condo at this beautiful resort."Guest: Mary Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 8, 2014View listing
"Took my 2, 20 something sons, their girl friends and my girl friend to this great spot and had a wonderful time over the 8 days we were there. The apartment was lovely, the view incredible, and there were numerous tours and options to fill the time when we weren't just relaxing. We also thought the restaurant/food options in town were better than expected. Would recommend Sunset Beach and Ambergris Caye as a great getaway for anyone and there were no negatives."Guest: Tom Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 21, 2014View listing
"Paradise Villa and this condo is just an awesome place when visiting San Pedro. Melissa was very helpful in all my vacation plans. Michael picked me up at the airport and made my stay exceptional. I stayed at the condo and traveled by myself and i felt very safe. All the staff at Paradise Villa was willing to help in any way. I would recommend this condo and would stay again. I really enjoy cooking so this was great to have the fresh market right across the street from the condo. The condo is centrally located and close walking distance to town."Guest: Robin Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: July 8, 2014View listing
