I booked very last minute and was offered the budget room. It was tiny but cute. I didn't plan on staying in my room all day so it was exactly what I needed. Bed was comfy. Tv didn't work and there did seem to be a lot of Mosquitos at night. Decided to add another night and was able to...

We loved De Real Macaw. We were looking for a very inexpensive, yet visually appealing and quaint place to stay. The owner, Rob, is obviously someone who wanted to live on an island and not be bothered, but needed a source of income. I got to teach my boyfriend what a Parrot Head was. ;) We loved his no-nonsense way...

I booked a room here 3 months prior to arrival and paid with credit card to GUARANTEE reservation. When I arrived the owner from Seattle, Rob, somehow forgot my reservation and was fully booked. He was quite sneaky and thinking on his feet and gave me a room in the back what wasn't what I booked and wasn't part of...

We work hard to provide clean, comfortable accommodations and a friendly, welcoming environment.

Great location, fantastic island, must visit! Rooms was ok, price was ok, guy in charge lacked any personality, like he didn't want to be there. We were paying for the room and location so it wasn't so bad, but found him hard work. Enjoy bar next door a complete winner, one of the best lobsters we had there... Still stay...

My apologies to this reviewer for affecting your stay with my moods and indifference. It's part of my being human and imperfect. No excuses though. You deserved better, and again I apologize. We appreciate that you found our accommodations suitable, it reflects well on our housekeeping staff. Thank you for staying with us.

The room was simple, but clean and comfortable, with a good A/C unit and fantastic shower - in fact it was the best temperature and pressure we had out of 6 places we stayed on our trip! The hammocks and loungers on the porch and in the yard were great for relaxing. De Real Macaw was in a great location...

This was a great place to stay in terms of location. At the time we thought we had done really well and really enjoyed our stay here. Looking back it was one of the more expensive places we chose to stay in our four month Central America trip. But saying that, Caye Caulker is more expensive than other Central American...

Easy to get to from the states for a quick little get away. Perfect location and the owner was quick to respond to all questions. The restaurant next door called Enjoy was excellent. Looks a bit shady but you'll eat a excellent for cheap. We tried Rose's restaurant one night and wasn't impressed. Room 7 was clean, comfy and a/c...

The location and value were great. Just steps away from restaurants, shopping, the market, etc. (though it's not like Caye Caulker is big). We stayed in a beach view room, which was away from the main street and gave us a bit more privacy. The room is probably a bit spartan by American standards, but clean and comfortable, and is...

You can't beat the location or the value you get for the price of this hotel.

My friends and I rented the house here for four nights and really enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect for three of us. We had a private balcony with a hammock to realax in. The staff is very friendly and they have daily maid service. The house has a kitchen, so we are able to cook our own breakfast...
