  • Incredible place

    "What an amazing time in an incredible place. From the very beginning well over a year ago, Dr. Mark provided an abundant amount of assistance for our group vacation. throughout that time, he directed us to excursions and answered all of the miscellaneous questions from our group. Two weeks out from our vacation My sister and her husband lost their business as well as the entire town for an undetermined amount of time. This was followed by their youngest being hospitalized for five nights due to an intense respiratory infection. Three days before our vacation departure a hurricane tore through Belize with Ambergris just on the north end. I cannot begin to explain the comfort level I was given due to the correspondence with Dr. Mark and his wife Joan during this time. From updates on island conditions to concern for my sister I felt like I was planning this trip with a favorite Uncle who had my needs as a top priority. When we headed off on our adventure to the Island. We were met by Phillip with Tropic Ferry at the airport. He took us to lunch and gave us a tour of the city and took us to the Ferry. The hurricane left an abundant amount of damage in its wake. Captain Alex and his mate cleared a path and got us to the boat and on our way. To the Dolphin we went. As we rounded the south end of Ambergris we could see that most of the docks and palapas over the water had been destroyed. The Blue Dolphin lost their palapa but with a minor twist the dock survived. Standing at the end were Gloria and Armand waving at our boat like we were old friends coming for a visit. Here at last, Vacation started. At our request Gloria prepared a delicious meal of enchiladas with all the sides. We love both houses and our host were exceptional. From assisting with the excursions to tending the house and grounds it doesn't get any better. My daughter even declared Gloria and Armand as another set of grandparents. The rest of our trip was spent exploring the island and going to many bars and restaurants. We enjoyed them all and will be back to visit them again as well as find others. I know this is a long review and I could write more, but I cannot emphasize enough what troubles were taken to ensure our trip. And reading the log from the prior trip who weathered the storm brought goosebumps but showed that the Blue Dolphin is a special place in the most capable hands."

  • PHENOMENAL - Best Vacation Rental

    "We decided to get married in Belize and had a decent size group of 11 people going. Villa Twin had 6 separate bedrooms, 6 private baths, 6 private entrances, one of the largest pools on the island, had separate A/C in every room, large open kitchen with gas stove, and only 15-20 mins from town center by golf cart (which is the main mode of transportation in San Pedro). This made it nice, quiet and private while having easy access to the restaurants and shopping. Oh! and flushing toilets!!! The entire place was kept clean and was well maintained. Now to the best part: Mario. Mario is the property manager and went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable and wasted no time fixing one of the A/C units that went out the day it happened. His wife is a wonderful cook and dinner waiting for us when we arrived at the house. He helped set up all of our excursions and took well care of us. I think Mario MADE the visit. He is an honest and upstanding young man. We forgot an envelope of cash and he got a hold of us and wired every bit back to us. To say we are pleased would be a sever understatement. If you go deep sea fishing and catch anything, Blue Water Grill have what is called Catch of the Day where they will prep your fish one of three ways and it is completely worth it. That being said, La Divina had to be my favorite place to eat next to Robbins (if you can get there before they run out of chicken). If you are wanting a nice relaxing stay and to learn the island lifestyle of relaxation and to have just a simple, beautiful trip, Villa Twin Dolphins is the place to be."

  • Returning to 'normal' was so hard after the "Sandcastle"

    "I read the reviews thoroughly before finally deciding on this place,. It took us 12 hours to get there, but upon rounding the corner and seeing the first view of the pier and ocean, and then coming in to find not one but TWO gift baskets from Carolyn (one for the second arrivals in our group who would arrive the next day and stay downstairs), we knew we'd chosen the best. The main family room upstairs has high ceilings, is airy and opens onto the balcony...the beach activities from the rental hut made everything special, as we kayaked to the reef almost daily to snorkel, and my personal favorite was the stand up paddle board, which I used to cruise around the docks in our area. And as so many people have said, William the caretaker rocks! He felt like family, but more importantly, he taught my 3 boys (one with special needs, 15, one just turned 18 and one 21) about making the most out of nature. He showed them spear fishing and how to catch fish (as he does daily) with a coke bottle wrapped with twine -- something endlessly fascinating to my husband who always goes. He also does wood carvings! We brought home a stunning sting ray and hammerhead shark sculpture, and coasters he signed for us. He also gave us his coconut demonstration -- how to break one open if you had to survive..and his key lime juice demonstration. Local honey, local brown sugar, key limes....YUM! Marvin, his friend, also helps out and we loved the dogs so much we brought them in to watch tv with us a couple of nights. :) Here's a YouTube video of the coconut demonstration, done inside the tiki hut bar in the yard: SIDE TRIPS: At Carolyn's recommendation, we used Seaduced for the Caye Caulker Day Sail ($100 per person, day trip) to go to Hol Chan, Shark & Ray Alley, and Caye Caulker. The guides were charming and knowledgeable and the infamous rum punch made for a very social group. We made sure to pick a day when cruise ships weren't in port. We used Caribbean Adventures to visit Altun Ha (we had the whole place to ourselves)and Cave Tubing in one day -- Cave Tubing was amazing. And...definitely call Aurora! She came to the house and made a grilled lobster/ribs feast that was less costly than any of the local restaurants. Mamba was our favorite, Rojo's was good: but fair warning - they are EXPENSIVE, as are all groceries. Tip: Using cash will save you 12.5% on tours. This was a special house, lots of wonderful memories."

  • Exciting stay!

    "I say we had an exciting stay as we rode out Hurricane Earl with the owners during our stay. We were well prepared for the power outage for a few days and mopping up the water was not a huge deal. Unfortunately, the pier and palapa were destroyed. The owners and caretakers were out cleaning up everything immediately. Being long-time Alaskans, we were immune to a power outage and high winds. However, I would not have stayed for anything stronger than a category 1 storm. The condo was minimally appointed, but comfortable. The pool was small but perfect for our 8-year old and nice for a quick dip. My only suggestions would be to outfit the kitchen and the terrace better. There were very few plastic cups and plates, with limited utensils for food prep. A couple of wine glasses would be handy. We prefer to cook, rather than eat out all the time. I also would love a hammock or lounge chairs on the terrace for comfortable gazing at the sea! I truly hope the area has recovered from the storm. Many of the bars, palapas and docks were destroyed. We will be back!"
