About Lori Drake

Parents to three of the two-legged kind (all FIVE AND UNDER, oh yeah), and one of the four-legged kind; business owners; travelers; photographers; beach combers; nature lovers; adventurists; yadda, yadda, yadda

Just living day by day, and figuring it out along the way. :)

Why Lori Drake chose Ambergris Caye

Belize is super easy to get to, but still remote enough to feel exotic. The island of Ambergris Caye still has an un-spoiled charm, and the people of San Pedro are so very friendly and welcoming.

Not to mention we are an English speaking island, which makes it easy for all us 'gringos!'

You gotta see it to 'Belize' it!

What makes this condo unique

You are steps away from the beach from any of our 12 units. You can relax in our infinity pool with swim-up bar and water-fall, or chill on the beach on a padded beach lounger, or hammock (!!), with a good read.

You can be as active, or in my case as lazy, (!!) as you wanna be. :)

Excellent place to stay on Ambergris Caye

  • 5 of 5

After reading all of the excellent reviews I chose Athens Gate as the place to stay for our first trip to Belize. Man was that a good call! My wife and I along with another couple stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit on the 4th floor. No elevator, but the stairs were a good work out. The units are right on the beach, with large living and dining areas and a large master suite. The second bedroom was quite small, but adequate for our group. The lanai overlooking the pool and Caribbean was huge.

The staff was very friendly and took care of everything we needed. Special thanks to E for setting up our snorkeling trip (on the Lady Leslie catamaran - a must do excursion if you go to Ambergris Caye) , arranging a golf car rental and cabs for us, and for turning us on to Sushi night at the Blue Water Grill on the beach in San Pedro.

Soto, the bar tender (and personal chef) provided the best service ever, especially the lobster, fish and vegetable dinner grilled to perfection.

Setting up the reservation and all transfers required to get to Athens Gate was a breeze thanks to Lori. She took care of all the details for us.

We took a snorkeling trip with Lady Leslie Tours to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve at the Reef, Shark and Sting Ray Alley and Caye Caulker. Martin Leslie and his sons are excellent hosts, and snorkeling guides. Best boat ride ever and I will do this trip every time I come back to Belize.

The restaurant across the street from Athens Gate has good food and you have to try the lobster fajitas. There is a small market a couple of blocks away and larger grocery stores on the south side of San Pedro.

I would definitely stay at Athens Gate again and recommend it to friends and family.

5 Star Service and Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Belize so we were not sure what to expect. We came as two couples and stayed in the 2/2 unit on the second floor. The resort was perfect. The attention from 'E' and James was excellent. We let them know what we needed and they took care of it. The daily housekeeping, while not really needed, was very nice and made the clean linens and towels every day a great added touch.

It was apparently the dry, hot and slow season so it was very quiet and there were not many people anywhere except in the center of San Pedro. If we ever go back we will definitely stay here again and would recommend Athens Gate to anyone.

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for two weeks over the Christmas/New Years Holiday. Believe me when I say that this place is everything that they say it is (and more) and if you look at the reviews you will see that everyone agrees. From start to finish our vacation was fantastic. Rhonda (owner) was unbelievably helpful w/ making the reservation and answering all my questions (which were many). She and the staff arraigned to have us picked up at the San Pedro airport and also arraigned our golf cart rental (our cart was waiting for us when we arrived). The condo's are gorgeous, spacious, clean, modern and offer all the comforts of home. The complex, pool, beach area are spectacular. The staff is one of the best that we have experienced in all of our travels. Eliazar "E" , James and Jonathan take care of you from the moment you walk in til the time you leave. After two weeks they started to feel like family. Anything that we needed they took care of. Joe (owner) is always around making sure the guests are taken care of and he is one of the easiest people to talk to.

We looked into many places to stay on the island before our trip and we drove by many of those places during our stay. I can say without hesitation that Athens Gate is one of the nicest places to stay on the entire island. You can relax during the day at the pool and beach. You can go snorkeling, diving or fishing or just go explore the island. In the evening you can go into town and eat (they have many restaurants) and finish the night with cocktails at any one of the many different bars. It really is the perfect scenario.

The entire experience was excellent, when we get back to Ambergris Caye (and we will get back there some day) we will be staying at Athens Gate.

The island itself is awesome. We loved the laid back, small town feel of the entire island. There are so many things to see and do.

If you stay at Athens Gate do yourself a favor and rent a golf cart during your stay. It is the best way to see the island, get back and forth into town and it really is a part of the total experience.

Thank you once again to Joe, Rhonda, "E", James and Jonathan. Hope to see you all again.

The reviews do not lie!

  • 5 of 5

When I saw this I was concerned because there were not that many reviews but the pictures looked so great. As most travelers have learned pictures do lie. I booked this trip hoping the reviews and the photos were real. To my suprise they are real!! I have had many vacations but none compare to this one. The staff are all very friendly and are truly concerened that you have a good time. They go the extra mile to meet all your needs. I am a bit difficult when I travel because I feel if I'm paying I should get what I want. They delivered it with smiles!!

The condo was everything I had hoped it would be. Very spacious, incredibly decorated and very functional. We were in a 2 bed room 2 bath it was so comfortable it was like being at home. The location is close enough to down town but not to close.

The beach, pool and dock are great places to spend your time just relaxing, swimming and hanging out. We spent a lot of time doing just that.

The phrase we heard from other guest over and over again " We will be back to Athens Gate" resounds from my trip as well. I can't wait to go back again!!

Thanks E, James and the rest of the gang!!

This property should be renamed "HEavEn's GatE".......

  • 5 of 5

I came to VRBO for a last minute booking in San Pedro. What I found was a little piece of Heaven when I arrived at Athen's Gate. After the easy communication and booking process by Rhonda, she offered to also book our hopper plane from BZE airport to San Pedro. She also took care of the taxi to/from the airport/condo. They even have their own golf carts for rent. The cost was simply added to our credit card upon arrival!

When we arrived, we were greeted by a big smile from a man named "E". I capitalized the letter "E" in the title, because without the owners capitalizing on this rare gem, it would just be another beautiful condo. "E" definitely makes this resort a treasure. "E" gave us valuable info, a map of the city with recommendations, booked all of our excursions, cleaned and bbq'd food for guests, bartended, arranged transportation, got fresh coconuts from trees to use for our tropical drinks, washed our dirty golf cart, and the list goes on! No matter what your desire, "E" graciously handled it with a smile. "E's" two assistant staff were exceptionally helpful and as nice as they come!

Rhonda and Joe were on site, and would always ask how our accommodations were and if we needed anything. At the same time, they kept their distance so that we felt as if the place was ours. Wonderfully nice and helpful people. Their property is immaculate, including the sand freshly raked every morning. They have housekeeping and it is a full amenity property.

It was so refreshing to stay in a location where people have an older set of values: trust, communication, and respect. My friend stayed at Xanadu the year before (for a higher $$$ and less space/conditions) & said this was WAY better and one of the best vacations she has EVER had (and she has traveled the world). I have recommended this property to everyone & I am saving my money for my next vacation to HEavEn's GatE.......THANK YOU TO ALL!!!!!!

By far, the best in Belize

  • 5 of 5

Having visited San Pedro 5 previous times, I feel we have a little experience. Athens Gate is by far the nicest place we have ever stayed in Belize or on any other vacation. Rhonda and Joe met us upon arrival and were most gracious and inviting. Then they introduced us to Eliazar. He was the 'go to' man. Any request we had, he made happen. Fishing, diving, restaurants, shopping, you name it, he made it happen. And oh, the Rum Punch is to die for after a fun day.

We were a family of 6, to include a teenager, and there was something for evryone one---- to include and most importantly, the GREAT NOTHING> lying on comfy lounge chairs, on a prestine beach, watching the boats on the water, and doing absolutely Nothing!!!! It was beyond and beyond. We will definitely be returning and it couldn't be too soon.
