Recent Ambergris Caye reviews

  • Is this Heaven ? YES! - Belize it!!!

    "o.k. . . a cheesy title but absolutely not a cheesy condo !! (we are from Wisconsin !!) We Loved everything about this condo and our experience at Grand Caribe. Best Ever and we are still raving about it and cannot wait to return !! Absolutely decadent and beyond any expectation. We're pretty particular travelers and there is not a single thing we would have called out on this adventure in Jays condo or at the Grand Caribe. Condo - EXCEPTIONAL !! right down to the different towel animals every day. Our awesome house keeping person even found the small animal thing my daughter left in her shorts pocket which went thru the laundry. The staff was EXCELLENT ! - they were able to assist in excursion arrangements that were last minute to due schedule changes. Accommodating and super friendly. Not like they "had to" but like they "wanted to". Huge benefit in staying in Belize. the locals truly value tourism. The condo had everything, and I mean EVERYTHING imaginable. Views, comfort, quiet - Even considering the construction next door, it was still Quiet ! Amazing ! The only thing I would have wanted and didnt experience is Wi-fi on the patio. But that's just super indulgent. The wi-fi worked perfectly . .right up to the patio threshold :-) Awesome amenities, Exceptional experience, Excellent staff . . it truly was the 'Land of Make Belize' !! We'll be back . . . thanks Jay !"

  • 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."

  • Excellent place to stay on Ambergris Caye

    "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."

  • A 5-star stay!

    "We have been to Ambergris before, but we stayed south of downtown, which can be fun, but very busy and crowded. If you want nightlife and lots of golf carts on the streets, look elsewhere! This house is about a mile north of the bridge, and it is like you are on your own private island. No noise, hardly anyone walking on the beach in front of the house, very few people peddling their wares. The location is PERFECT. Marbucks (excellent coffee, smoothies, and breakfast sandwiches), the Truck Stop (street food, stone oven pizza, ice cream), Ak'Bol yoga (also great breakfasts), Tiki Maya (burgers, fries) are literally only steps away. A small grocery store with ATM is just up the street (2 minutes by golf cart). We didn't have a cart the first night, and enjoyed walking down the beach under the stars to eat lion fish at Pirate's Treasure. The Dive Bar is just past there and we had a yummy lunch with a fun kid / dog-friendly vibe. The old Palapa Bar is right in front of the house and we were able to do scuba diving and spearfishing (a highlight for our teenagers) through Palapa Tours. Jet skis are delivered there, water taxis can stop there...it is all so convenient; literally a few steps away! The house itself is beautiful and comfortable. Upscale, but casual. The deck is great to hang out on, and the pool is wonderful to just float in, looking at palm trees and ocean. Lolly, the owner, is communicative and helpful. She runs this house like a real business. Very professional, yet also personable! It was truly a pleasure to work with her. She made me feel like we were friends that she was sharing her home with - I was tempted to bring a hostess gift! In addition, their caretaker, Orlando, is pleasant and efficient. He arranged things like a golf cart rental for us, which was nice. He checked in every day and responded quickly when we had questions or issues. We honestly could not have been happier staying here, and will definitely try to book it when we come back to Belize. My family LOVED it! (I almost hate to write too many glowing things, for fear that it will become so popular that I won't be able to book it when I want to!)"
