Fodor's Expert Review Grand Caribe Resort and Condominiums

Tres Cocos area of North Ambergris, 1.25 miles (2 km) north of bridge, Ambergris Caye, Corozal, Belize Fodor's Choice

Set in an arc on a 5-acre beachfront site, Grand Caribe's 72 superluxury condos, in eight four-story, red-tiled-roof clusters, face the sea and a 500-foot stretch of sandy beach. The curvy-walled one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom suites have Brazilian floor tiles, spacious Jacuzzis, and kitchens that will give you the impulse to cook with every appliance. The a/c is famously cold, and sunken ceilings give every suite a dynamic depth. Five pools and a swim-up bar provide hours of relaxation, though the low-roofed bar, much like a bunker, is an aesthetic miss. The rooftop restaurant, Rain, and a grocery, Beach Basket, are on the resort grounds. Several good restaurants are within walking distance. The long pier has berths for a number of boats.
