The island is so small that no where is much more than a five minute golf cart ride.
Thank you for the quick reply. I'm still trying to figure the pros/cons of the 3 hotels and have just read about a 4th called the Sea Dreams. I'm gonna check it out.
I recommend Island Magic. Sweet place! Very close to the water taxi pier. Pool, beach bar, nice rooms.
We love Seaside Cabanas but don't have anything else to reference to...
My wife and I stayed at Seaside Cabanas in early June. I do not know about the other properties you mentioned but from walking around Caye Caulker, and it does not take a lot to see the entire island, my impression was that the Seaside Cabanas was the nicest place on the island. It is right in front of the water taxi pier and they allowed us to check in to our room at 10:30 in the morning (#18), which made things very easy. To me, Caye Caulker has kind of a backpacker vibe and for every tourist my age (mid 50s) there are probably 10 or more in their 20s or 30s, so my perspective is different from others who will comment, but if budget is not your main concern, then I would definitely recommend the Seaside Cabanas, particularly room 18..
I stayed at Iguana Reed in January 2013 and loved it. Very clean, beautiful hotel rooms. No tropical vibe, but beautiful place. Great pool, excellent, friendly staff.
Probably the best place on the island to watch the sunrise and set. Mini bar in room, continental breakfast in the bar. Nice relaxing bar, decent priced drinks.
My family stayed at Island Magic and it was very nice. They had a mini kitchen, full fridge ( which Iguana Reef did not).Nice pool as well. Cannot comment on the other two.
Another vote for Seaside Cabanas. We stayed there in May (also #18). My sister and her hubby were in #2. They were also happy with our choice to stay at Seaside Cabanas.
Thanks everyone for your post! I'm so glad that most of you said that Seaside Cabanas was one of the best because I was gonna stay at the Iguana Reef, but with further invetigation, I decided on Seaside. If I were taking any children, I would stay at the Island Magic. Can't wait to go to Caye Caulker, and I hope that the water taxi right out front of the hotel is one of the stops coming in from Belize City. I need to find out where else the water taxi goes from the Seaside.
