  • 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."

  • Perfect House & Perfect Location

    "My husband and I and two other couples stayed here for a few nights. The location is perfect and the house is seriously the best option for 3 couples! The view is stunning and since the house is directly on the beach, the breeze seems to keep the mosquitoes away!"

  • 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."

  • We keep coming back.

    "We have stayed here 7 or 8 times now. We love it so much we have been kicking around buying a unit. It is small and quiet complex (only ten units) so it's not busy or noisy like the resorts. Much of the time you can have the pool, beach or dock all to yourself. If you take a tour the guides will come pick you up right on the dock. It is clean and well maintained (both the unit and the grounds). We don't pack as much since we have the washer/dryer and we also don't have to eat out all the time with the full kitchen. It is far enough from town to be quiet, yet close enough to do everything you want. The neighborhood is very safe and there is also a security patrol. It is great being able to watch sunrise over the Caribbean each morning. Ana and Erik are quick to respond if there are any issues. For example this year we noticed that some kitchen utensils, food storage containers and glasses were missing. A couple hours later Erik showed up with a bag of new things from the store. Like I said I we keep coming back, so this is our happy place."
