My husband and I had a reservation and eagerly looked forward to staying here, but were sorely disappointed in the room. It was a ground level room next door to the permanent residents on the corner. They had three small dogs in their fenced lot who barked at all the walkers along the road. At midnight I finally went out...

We were unlucky to arrive a couple of days after Hurricane Earl that destroyed part of the island, there was no electricity, no water,... They upgraded our room (for the same price) as a tree was blocking the access to the room we booked. We also had a 50% discount for the night we had to spend without water &...

For a budget solo traveler, it can sometimes be hard to find good budget accommodation on island destinations, Caye Caulker included. I booked a private room w/ private bath at this place. The rest of the pictures with balcony and hammocks are the pricier rooms, some of which include an AC. My private room was in the back of the...

When I think of 'Island living' this is the kind of place that came to mind. It has a very laid back, islandy vibe! The room was basic but clean and comfortable. We had a mini kitchen. When we arrived, the fridge wasn't working but within an hour, their repair man had come by and got it running and he...

The room is rustic, and located right across the street from the beach. The street is only traveled by walkers, bicycles and golf carts, so it's really no problem to walk across. We were able to hang our own hammocks on the porch. There is always fresh drinking water available, and they are very attentive if you need anything. The...

This is our second trip to Caye Caulker. The term "go slow" is the mantra for the Caye. Things are changing rapidly! The small island has become the bumper car arcade for golf carts! No mo go slow! Development everywhere! I am amazed that in one year so much has occurred. For the most part the people are still friendly,...

The room we had was small, there was A/C but no matter the setting it seemed to be the same temperature (not too cool). There were ants everywhere. It is located facing the beach but other than that not much to promote this hotel. Staff weren't very friendly and weren't there all the time. I would choose another hotel next...

The only positive about this place is the location. THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONER, DO NOT BELIEVE THE DESCRIPTION!!! The only unit with A/C is the Condo apparently. Had we known that we would not have booked here. False advertising at its finest. Bugs everywhere, kind of dirty. Wish we would have stayed somewhere else.

If you want to experience the island as though you are practically a local, this is your spot! All the people here are fantastic, and the owner, Jessie, is a sweetheart! We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, with a/c, small kitchen, hammocks and a view of the beach and "street" life. We took great advantage of our balcony every...

Very accommodating. The AC in June was very welcome. Clean and pleasant. Economical. Faces the beech and permits a wonderful breeze. Has larger and smaller rooms. We had a room with a kitchenette. Receptionist Kayla was very accommodating.
