Recent Caribbean reviews

  • Beautiful water

    "We loved the bay at Orchid Bay. Beautiful water which gradually got deeper. Made it great for swimming/boating/kayaking/paddle boarding. The water is aqua, but milky from sediments on bottom. Bottom is gooey with rocks (wear water shoes.) Casita we stayed in was very nice. You have a good restaurant in Orchid Bay, and we found good food at Copper Bank Inn. Also local taco place in Consejo Shores. Be prepared for very rough roads and going over two hand-cranked ferrys on the way, which is very quaint and interesting, but allow for extra time to to get there. Try to travel in daylight secondary to road conditions and poor signage. Gas stations few and far between; plan accordingly. Go with a 4 wheel drive rental."

  • ocean villa property

    "Beautiful property and very functional for a family. We especially enjoyed the private pool and access to the ocean for snorkeling. Beach access requires a car rental as well as visiting the town. We enjoyed our welcome from private chef Sweeting and his excellent treats. Owner was extremely responsive for any request."

  • Will be back!

    "Just got back from our stay at the Grand Caribe and am missing Ambergris Caye already! We stayed 12 days in this beautiful condo and had the option of renting it as a 2 bedroom. The resort is first class, staff are more than willing to help you with all your needs. The maids cleaned the condo daily including doing the dishes, laundry and mopping the floors. Everything at the resort is clean and well maintained, we even saw the staff rake and clean the beach area twice daily. The resort is one of the few on the island where you can walk in and swim right from the beach. We also enjoyed snorkeling right off the dock. Love the location of this resort and in our opinion, one of the nicest north of the bridge. You are far away enough from the hustle and bustle of San Pedro yet close enough to bike or hike into town. The resort is also close to a lot of good restaurants. We highly recommend Ak-bol yoga retreat resort, a two minute walk south for their restaurant and if you enjoy yoga, they have classes at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day. The prices were great as well, $4 U.S. for 3 chicken salbutes! Try the pizza too, it is amazing ? Also, close by is the Lazy Croc, Aji’s and Capricorn. All have great atmospheres right on the beach. We did visit the Palapa Bar about 5 min. south down the beach, a lot of fun, and if you are hungry try the slow cooked pulled pork. We rented bikes for our entire stay at Maya House bike rentals just a short walk south from the resort. We found this to be our mode of transportation as we enjoyed the exercise and exploring riding up and down the beach path. One day we rode 45 minutes north of the resort and to our surprise found Xtan Ha beach. Most beautiful beach, no seaweed, beautiful blue Caribbean and white sand. They have tables in the water where you can eat or enjoy a cool topical drink. Snorkeling at Hol Chan Marine reserve and Shark Ray alley is a must. If you are not to keen on snorkeling, you can take the glass bottom boat. One day we took the water taxi into Belize city and hired a taxi to take us to the Zoo. Great to see the Jaguars and other native animals in their natural environment. Tips: In San Pedro, Belize Chocolate factory, chocolate chip cookies and brownies, mmm! Eat at Mesa Café #1 restaurant on Tripadvisor but only open 9-5. LOTS to see and do on this island and close by, even golf on a nearby island, ask locals, front desk or get a travel book. Tacogirl.com offers discounts for Tropic Air."

  • Casa Zen - Our home away from home!

    "This place has been an amazing experience, we traveled from AZ with our two children 11 and 9 and the location of this house is excellent. We walked to the beach daily, to the point that we spent two nights camping in the beach without any special gear or equipment. When we needed anything we walked to the house and got it! The house has everything you need in the kitchen, I was able to cook a couple of times. The outside shower was a clever idea to keep the sand in the house to a minimum. I definitely recommend this house and will be using this place as our home for future stays in Rincon. Thanks to Annette (the owner) for sharing such beautiful house with us :)"
