This place was cheaper, more centrally located, and nicer than some of the other hotels I have stayed in on Caye Caulker. The rooms were spotless and comfortable and there was a safe in the room. This is now my favourite place in Caye Caulker. The only note of caution I would give about this place is that they don't... More

Great value and perfect location. The modern room with great bed and shower. In room safe, small kitchen area and closet. Make sure you request for room on the second floor. Ernesto and his family runs the place and are lovely people.

The hotel rooms are wonderful. Very modern. Very clean. We stayed in large room with two queen size beds and a small kitchen. The hotel is on the main strip right next to several restaurants and bars.

This was a great place for our family to stay. It was clean, had hot water in the bathrooms and was right across from a small beach which was great for kids. We stayed in the two bedroom appt on the ground floor. There was no view, but the location was great. we were easy walking distance to the ferry... More

On a whim we decided to stay here after a few days on the island and wanted to stay another night. The room was great! Recently renovated with very nice finishings. Staff was very friendly. The room was very quiet with the door shut. The next time we visit we will book here for our entire stay. Very pleased!

Overall we found it great value. Newly renovated rooms to a high standard. Location is excellent, it's basically right over the street from the beach. Short walk to the Split and ferry ports. Shared balcony with sea views. Friendly staff. Additionally, the Rainbow Restaurant over the road (sand) belonging to the hotel serves tasty food and overlooks the sea.

Centrally located across from beach and good rainbow restaurant. True it's noisy but pretty much all the central locations in caye caulker are because the islands so small unless you're north of 'the split.'

Rainbow Hotel itself is fine - clean, great to have AC in the bedrooms, kitchen quite sufficient and staff helpful, but it's next to a dog rescue and between the beach noise and the soccer fields. Even with earplugs, it was a real bummer.

Located on island's main road, lots of traffic, mostly pedestrian, but particularly noisy in early mornings with trucks collecting garbage and servicing nearby restaurants. Beach on other side of road was neither clean nor private; lots of pedestrian traffic and dog traffic (feces). Beach also had seaweed raked into piles left to rot and was rather smelly. Rooms comfortable and... More

A clean, comfortable, small hotel on Caye Caulker, a short walk from the ferry dock. Good location on Front Street across from the Rainbow Grill. Kitchenette in our room had a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, which was nice. Solid air-conditioning and decent internet. Bed a little soft but we still slept well. There isn't really a good beach on... More
