Nice Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property was as photos show, clean, well stocked with kitchen utensils, didn't do much cooking, a block from the beach with many choices to eat. The staff was very friendly and helpful, answering our many questions about San Pedro and the island. We would like to return!.

Good place to stay, but...

  • 4 of 5

We stayed January-March 2018. Our condo was as pictured, good size for two people. The place was clean and long term renters have housekeeping twice a week for linens and general cleaning. The kitchen has limited basics for dishes, utensils, pans, etc. If something was missing, we asked housekeeping and they did their best to provide it, such as extra hangers, ice cube tray and we even received a new nonstick fry pan.

There were no laundry facilities for guests to use. Housekeeping would do a load of laundry for $10 US.

The pool was unusable for about three weeks during our stay, end of Jan.-middle of February. When we asked about it at the condo office, they told us the pool and gym were managed by a contractor When we asked at the pool, they said they were working on it-filters weren't working, pump problems, possibly a leak, etc. When they finally did fix/clean the pool, it was clean and usable the last five weeks of our stay.

The airport runway was close to the condo units, and used constantly thru out the day, 7am-7pm. At times the noise from the planes were conversation stopping, especially at the pool.

The internet and TV worked good, with just a few interruptions in service. There were separate air conditioner units in the condo, so it was easy to maintain comfortable temperatures in either the living room or bedroom.

The housekeeping and maintenance staff were terrific-friendly, helpful and very hard workers.

FYI If planning to stay in Belize longer than 30 days, passports have to be renewed every month or 30 days, for a fee of 50 BZD, which can be done in San Pedro

During the month of February and continuing thru March, Sargasso seaweed washed up on the beaches. Some resorts were constantly cleaning it up, while others didn't, which then got very smelly after 3-4 days. Walks on the beach were not so pleasant in some areas,

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We are close to the airport, as many other properties are, as the airport is close to the beach. You stayed during a busy time of the year, where the flights were more frequent. However it is a small local airport, and usually the flights aren't as frequent, and you can't hear anything from the room. I want to address some issues you mentioned, as it is very important to me that my guest have a great experience. In regards to the laundry, my listing never said there was a laundry facility, however as you mentioned you can easily get laundry done by housekeeping for $10 for a large load. In regards to the pool, as you know we had some very bad rainy weather for a few consecutive days which caused an issue with the pool, this was out of our control, however we changed the filter as soon as possible, the pool is quite large, and we wanted to make sure everything was cleared and safe for our guest to use. I apologize for any inconvenience caused. In regards to the kitchen and the room, it is equipped with all the basic necessities, and anything else needed that is available can be provided upon request as you mentioned. I am glad you enjoyed the staff and housekeeping, they are all very friendly and helpful. In regards to the beach, we hope that everyone on the island tries to keep the beach clean, however we can't control other properties, but our beach front sister property, takes good care of the beach they are on. It was a pleasure hosting you, and I appreciate your positive review, and I am glad you enjoyed your stay, and I hope I addressed any issues you had. I hope you come back and stay with us.

Love this place! Thank you

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month here and loved it! First off the value is incredible- The price for a month was the cost of 5 nights at a high end beach resort. The place has a great kitchen and nice living room, which made it feel really homey and spacious. The pool was huge and the property grounds were clean and well kept. The staff are friendly and ready to help- they helped with our laundry (they did a big bag for $10) and helped with our golf car rental. Golf cart is not needed if you don't mind walking. The beach is really close and the town center is within 10-15 minutes walk. I wish I didn't have to leave.

For the price, it is clean, modern and is close to everything you need.

  • 4 of 5

The place is lovely – just like the photos. We stayed for one month in February 2018.

We had a unit with a balcony overlooking the airport runway. Although, the noise can bother some people – we were not annoyed. The planes fly from about 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. If you are out most of the time, you won’t really notice. If you plan to stay in most of the time, it may become a bother.

Ask for a unit with a balcony – you will enjoy it, as there is no other way to be outside and the place is small.

The pool and gym are not like the photos. The pool was dirty and we never went in it. The gym is also dirty, old and very hot (as the air conditioning does not work). There are great gyms and yoga classes within about a 10 minute walk – and those are much better options. The beach is also about a 10 minute walk away.

Tips for future guests:

1. The cooking supplies are very limited. If you plan on cooking a lot, this may not be your place. We only made coffee, breakfast and a few lunches, so it was doable.

2. The place needs one good non-stick pan, one good knife (the knives were terrible + could barely cut a lime), a can opener, one good spatula, one bowl, one measuring cup, a beer bottle opener, a corkscrew, etc. Even a blender would have been nice to have.

3. The toaster did not work

4. All of the other VRBO places we have stayed have a "pay it forward" program. So all of the leftover non-perishables (water, spices, oil, vinegar, mustard, left over bits of liquor, Kleenex, paper towels, coffee, etc) are left behind by each renter. This provides everyone with a richer experience. We purchased 150 coffee filters, the minimum amount we could purchase, we used 28 + left the rest --what happens to it and everything we left? You will need to purchase everything you need, as the kitchen and pantry are completely bare.

5. You will need to buy bottled water. The unit has no water dispenser or a water pump for the large bottles, so it is a bit of a pain.

6. The on-site staff are nice, but not helpful.

All that being so, we had a great stay. For the price, it is clean, modern and is close to everything you need. We never rented a golf cart and were just fine walking everywhere.

Nice Stay in Ambergris Caye, But.....

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the Grand Baymen (“GB”) February 2018. The pictures posted for GB are somewhat misleading. For instance, there is no “beautiful sandy beach two blocks away”. It is 5 to 6 blocks and is not swimmable as the statement and photo imply. There are very enjoyable bars and restaurants in the area, and there are places to sit back on the sand and enjoy a book. The tenants had to complain and form an “uprising” during our stay as the pool was disgustingly dirty and algae filled, and did not look safe to swim in. It was cleaned after many days of empty promises to get it cleaned. The pool is relatively close to the condos.

Another reviewer commented that GB is like a “barracks” and I would agree with that. Although VRBO stated the unit had “dining areas” and had pictures that showed a kitchen counter with stools and a place to have a meal, the reality was that there was no table or counter to even have a meal in the place. The only option was to sit on the couch with a plate in hand, or stand at the counter. We were constantly surprised/disappointed in the lack of items to make a stay comfortable especially for a “Gorgeous, Modern Suite”. For instance, the tap water is not potable in San Pedro but there is no stand in which to place a 5-gallon water container for drinking or cooking. Among other things, there were no paper towels or holder provided, no can opener, no strainer, no sharp knife, no dish soap, very limited number of clothes hangers, very few dishes, and no safe. There is a dishwasher but there were so few dishes it was not necessary. The shower had no shelf to hold soap or shampoo, the condo walls were paper thin and every morning we heard the neighbor’s music early in the morning as if it were in our place, TV blaring in the evening. The place is right next to the island airport, so you hear take-offs and landing from 6:30 in the morning to 7:00 at night, but not really that bad sound wise unless out by the pool. Many issues encountered seem easy to fix, just not taken care of by owner/management. This is not to say that the on-site staff was not helpful, it seemed they wanted to help but were constrained by management. They were all very nice and helpful as much as they could be. On the positive side, the unit was clean, and the area was safe. We will go back to San Pedro at some point, but not likely to stay at Grand Baymen again.

Owner's Response: For anyone that read this review, I have contacted vrbo about taking down this review, as it was unfortunately written with bad intentions. There was an issue with this guest which I cant get into, which prompted this review. This negative review was expected and was written with bad intentions, and there is a lot of intentional false information in this review, which I apologize for future guest reading this, however rest assured this is not a honest review. As you can see I have many other positive reviews. However I am going to address all the false statements in the review. We are less than 5 min walking distance to the beach and the beach is absolutely swim able. There was no uprising from the tenants about the pool. We had a few days of extremely bad weather, which caused an issue with the pool, which was out of our control, however that was temporary and was fixed promptly. There is no such review of mine, where someone commented that we are like "barracks". There is absolutely a place to eat in the kitchen, there is a counter, table, and chairs in the condo. Many kitchen necessities are provided, and if anything additional is required, you can request to housekeeping, and they will provide anything you need, as long as it is available. The guest had a corner unit, therefore no one was sharing a wall with him, and on the other side was a family with young children, therefore there was no music or TV blaring. This review is very unfortunate, as it was written with bad intent. I hope future guest give the property a chance, and focus on the honest positive reviews, we are wonderful property, and we take hosting very seriously, and have many repeat guest. Thank you

Good photographer

  • 4 of 5

The people at Grand Baymen are great very nice and friendly I give them all 10's. We had a nice time and the room was good but it wasn't at all what the pictures and description describe. There is sales office on the Ocean side about 3-4 blocks away nothing more, there is no beach anywhere. The buildings are like a brick army barracks facing the airport runway. Like 100' feet away LOL...... BUT its a quit airport. I had a different idea about the rental when I got there and said i dont think this is it. After I looked at the pictures again the room looked just like the photos, thought it was me.. The next day I was outside the office and i heard a guy say this isnt the place i booked on line.. Jaja maybe not me. Anyway its economical and better than a Motel8 and they are nice people who want to do as much as they can for you..
