We have some friends coming to visit while we are there and they are looking at Caribe Island to stay. They have 2 small children and 2 teens that will be coming. If anyone has stayed here, please let me know what you think. Thanks Lisa

Just stayed thier for the third time last month. In my opion it is one of the nicest resorts on the island. The one downside is that is about 3 miles from town. There is a free shuttle (taxi) that will bring you down town around dinner time (6pm) and bring you back. Manuel the taxi driver is awesome. He is always willing to work with you. The staff is GREAT and the grounds are always kept in tip top shape. They have a water trampoline at the end of the dock that is a lot of fun also. I am already looking foward to returning to CIR next year.

Bonjoe,
Thanks for the kind words! We have just purchased a gas golf cart and trolly for the Resort that will be running shuttles into town all day, as well airport runs.
Lots of happenings and changes, so it'll be a different Caribe Island on your next trip! We have also just ordered new bikes (adult and children's sizes), new kayaks are on the way, water bicycles, and a new paddleboat!! We have also expanded our DVD collection and book library! And we'll have the new restaurant up and running by the end of December!!! Exciting stuff.
Look forward to seeing you again!!
Cheerz!

I have stayed there with my family the last couple of years and I promise you will not be disappointed. It is fabulous and my kids love it more than us. The beach and pool there are second to none on Ambergris.

Ditto!! The attention to detail is phenominal. The rooms are exquisite, the pool is awesome, (they even have pool toys for the kiddies) the bar is top notch, they have a dive boat now, and it just keeps getting better and better. It would be my first choice. They can arrange for a baby sitter, the food is good, the view is fabulous, I can't say enough about it. It's the PERFECT place for kids. Don't worry about it being far from town. If they're getting a shuttle, it will be a piece of cake. Golf cart rental is always available as well. (They will even arrange that)If they don't have what you need, they'll get it. You can even make arrangements for drinks and provisions in your room for your arrival. By all means, make that reservation immediately!!!! laugh

Vicky -

Just curious - are you getting "real" kayaks or those foo-foo sit on tops?

klcman....my man. I have been kayaking over 10 years and even owned a shop in St.Augustine and those foo-foo sit-on-tops are the ONLY ones to use in the Atlantic or Caribbean unless you want to drown your guests. They are fantastic and just about anyone can hop on one and have a great time.

hey bigZeke - no sweat...I was just asking laugh

I too have been kayaking for years. It's just my personal preference for the real deal with ocean kayaks(and I live on the Atlantic)

Agree that the sit-on-tops are best for the novices/beginners. Just have not seen an ocean kayak on AC, that's all.
