Hello Everyone....I know you get a lot of these questions but I am new to this message board so please bear with me. We are coming to Ambergris Caye June 2008 for a week. We have reservations at Caribe Island Resort. Does anyone have any information regarding this place...like reviews, etc. We realize it is just a bit from town but that is okay. Also, June will be hot/sticky..we are use to that living in Houston...other than that is it a good time to visit?

My husband and I spent one night there. We live on Caye Caulker and I did the Wedding Photography for a couple staying down the road at Pelican Point. We loved it!!!! The apartments were lovely, sooo comfortable and cheerfully decorated. The pool and beach were great. The girls in the Office were very friendly and helpful. We spent equal time at the two resorts, Pelican Point being more upscale, expensive, but we felt all that was lost as it was not as comfortable or welcoming,(friendly) as Caribe Island Resort. You will have a wonderful time.

We spent a week (in June) at the Caribe a couple of years ago. It is a beautiful place and the apartments are nice. There were three of us in a one bedroom unit but since it wasn't full they upgraded us to a larger unit for free which was nice. Now that said I will tell you the people that were running the Caribe then are no longer doing it. There was some fallout that went along with the change of management.
We didn't really mind the fact that it's a little ways south but I would recommend you have golf cart, the walk gets a little long after a few One Barrels and coke.

They offer free transportation to town every night around dinner time. They will also pay for your taxi when you arrive and when you leave. Taxi fares can vary, if you go with the individual taxis you can get to town for $5.00 to $ 7.50 US ask first because it can go as high as $15 US, we stayed there 6 months ago.

Not to cause trouble ,but it no way would I call this a resort!!!!in the travel buisness a resort has all the facilities one would or should want . ie =front desk 24/7 person on duty that you can call. tour office ,restaurant , bar ,room service ,etc...so this is a condo complex.with a dock and pool ..But that may all you need or want!! and should be a lot less in price than a resort.

Well six months ago. they had a office, nice big one, open all day till just after dark, with a couple real nice young ladies working,All the tour info and bookings you could want. a little internet area with a computer hooked up, the place was wired for wifi. The bar and restaurant opened at 11 am, guess if you needed a drink prior to that you were on your own. This was in off season, the place was almost empty yet the bar and restaurant still opened. I would hope that most people are looking for something on vacation besides the proper definition of the word RESORT.

I'm curious as to which "resorts" on Ambergris Caye have room service.

There are some lovely places that aren't resorts in the normal sense of the word. Paradise Villas for example.

Cooper while I can understand you like this place and may have a good reson to reccommended it ?? Please understand there are people who try to make a choice of where to stay ,and the word resort [I was trying to factual] ,, may paint the wrong picture of this place or any place .This is a group of condo units .Now if you are talking about paradise villas I would say the same .Condo units with a pool and nice grounds .very nice place but not a resort !!! The names pedro 1 has named are true resorts in every way..And all who come here do not need a resort..a hotel[rubys,spindrift, may be just great !!! just like a condo/apt may fit the budget and needs of lots ..But lets tell it like it is..
