I'll start off the same way many reviews of PAWs has in saying, Madi is an amazing lady and always went out of her way to make me feel welcome. I camped on the property for 3 nights and then stayed in the dorms for another 4 nights. I left my gear in both the tent and rooms, without feeling... More

First off the owner, Madi, is an amazing person who has lived a really interesting life. This hostel/cat sanctuary is actually her family home where she grew up and has been expanding. We stayed in the brand new dorms which were big and comfortable. The kitchen was being built when we were there so it was lacking in terms of... More

Pause is a great place if you love reasonable rates and when your money goes to a worthy cause. Pause is a cat sanctuary and the money goes toward food and kitty litter for rescued island cats. Madi started her sanctuary when she noticed newborn kittens thrown away in plastic bags in the ocean, saved them and the rest is... More

I got to stay with Madi and her animals for a week and it was truly the experience of a lifetime. First, in response to the negative reviews, I must ask what people were expecting. You are visiting an animal sanctuary. Of course, you are expected to put in time to care for the cats and dogs. If you are... More

We never got to meet Madi, because she was off doing some charitable work for animals. That is what this place is about. Madi was very communicative when we booked our room and made sure we had a taxi driver known to her that took us to the ferry to Caye Caulker. That was VERY helpful given Belize City's reputation...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week (we extended our stay by three days). You can't beat the view from your bedroom window: two loungers on a private beach with the water right there and palm trees either side. There's a deck too where you can sit in the shade and watch the sun go down. As well... More

As we left our home we shot a picture of the snow covered lawn and cars. We arrived in Belize & took the water taxi over. It was beautiful to watch the sun set as we traveled to the island. Pause Accommodation was just a couple of blocks from the dock in Caye Caulker, on the back side of the... More

Staying with Madi made our visit to Caye Caulker truly something unique and special. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else on the island! We stayed in the largest suite, it was spacious and very affordably priced, it has its own private deck in addition to the 2-story dock over the water with a gorgeous view of the sunset. We... More

My fiance and I went here as a pre-honeymoon vacation, and she picked this place out of all the other places on the island because the animal sanctuary aspect, but when we got there there were a ton of bonus features: -- there's a private dock with an upper deck that's perfect for viewing the sunset on, or just looking...
