Relax in a shady seaside patio, under gumbo limbo trellises, coconut palms, and almond and sea grape trees, with views of the barrier reef in the distance, and snack on delicious small plates of barbecue shrimp, ceviche, calamares andaluza, and a heavenly artichoke dip. In larger plates, try the seafood paella, which is prepared in several varieties. If there's a downside, it's inconsistency, with the food suffering on the few nights Chef Hugo is off. If you decide
you want to stay longer, follow the winding path through tropical gardens and cross a small bridge over a lagoon and you'll find cute one-bedroom rental cottages. Come by your own golf cart, cab (BZ$35 from San Pedro), or water taxi—get off at Grand Caribe.

It is not just the great food but the owners Susan and daughter Victoria. Very professional women and extremely hospitable. The staff is friendly and helpful in every way. You will not find a more island-y place on Ambergris. A wonderful place to while away the afternoon or evening. Great experience.
