San Pedro, Belize, February 08, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Awards are in season at TripAdvisor and Grand Caribe Belize Resort and Condominiums is proud to announce that they have nabbed a spot on TripAdvisor's list of Top 10 Resorts in Central America.
Over the past 13 years, TripAdvisor has established itself as the authority on travel information all over the world. With its current user-base of 100 million travelers, and it’s business listings numbering about half a million hotels and half a million restaurants, it is only natural that their member reviews carry immense weight and help millions of travelers plan great vacations each year. Because the results are entirely user-generated, the site has become the most trusted source of insight into travel destinations and accommodations on the planet.
Born out of the need for sites that feature authentic user reviews, TripAdvisor aggregates the reviews of its millions of members to determine finalists for its highly prestigious Traveler’s Choice Awards. Grand Caribe’s very first TripAdvisor review was a five star review on July 13, 2010. With 135 traveler reviews to date, Grand Caribe has rapidly climbed among the ranks of top resorts within Belize and all of Central America to finish among the Top 10 – quite an impressive achievement.
Grand Caribe’s mission, upon its inception, was to introduce an upscale resort experience to the outskirts of San Pedro, away from the bustle of the village, yet near enough to be within quick access to the attractions of the village, which has also recently been recognized by TripAdvisor as one of the Top 10 Beach Destinations in Central America. Its developers worked tirelessly to bring modern, state-of-the-art design and amenities to the island in order to compete with resorts on the beaches of Cancún, Montezuma, Marsella, Playa Gigante, and others across the region that draw thousands of visitors each year. The TripAdvisor award is proof that resorts in Belize are quite capable of holding their own against international competitors, and that the tourist industry in Belize is well-primed to support the high end, condo-development market.
Grand Caribe takes this opportunity to congratulate its fellow TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice winners in Central America and to say that it embraces the spirit of competition, of which the main beneficiaries are the travelers themselves. Armed with the recent recognition from TripAdvisor, the resort hopes to raise the bar even further and continue exceeding and surpassing the expectations and needs of every single guest it welcomes within its doors.
About San Pedro and Ambergris Caye – San Pedro is a quaint little island village of about 15,000 inhabitants with a fascinating history and an intriguing modern culture. Once the capital of Belize, in the days when the country was still a colony, the village has gone from being the administrative center of the country to a popular and bustling retreat for thousands of visitors from all around the world. Ambergris Caye, Belize’s largest island, stretches for only 25 miles in length and 1 mile in width at its widest point. It sits minutes away from the largest Barrier Reef in the Western Hemisphere, which is home to a huge, stunning variety of tropical fish and other marine species. It offers some of the best dive and snorkeling spots in the world.
About Grand Caribe – Grand Caribe is a relatively new luxurious condominium complex with 72 elegantly, tastefully furnished units situated 2 miles north of San Pedro. The resort rests on immaculately manicured grounds and 500 feet of white, sandy beach. With air-conditioning, fully-equipped kitchens, the village of San Pedro nearby, and the marine metropolis of the Barrier Reef a few minutes away, it is a picture perfect beach destination, one that has the appeal of novelty and of still being discovered by travelers from around the world. Grand Caribe has recently been recognized by TripAdvisor’s prestigious Travelers’ Choice award. It also currently holds a place on TripAdvisor’s Top 10 list of resorts in Central America.
