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

The Rainbow is a modern tastefully decorated place. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable, with air conditioning and fans. It is centrally located, and Ernie is a great "concierge." All of the rooms have a nice place to check out the ocean view- across the street. The restaurant also across the street is a great place to hang out .The... More

I have been going to Rainbow Hotel for the past seven years--sometimes in the winter, sometimes in the summer. It was renovated, which the reviews below reflect. I've always had a great room here. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are clean with safes inside, and the owner has always been accommodating and personable. There is a beautiful view... More

We loved the upstairs Rainbow Casita! It was perfect for two couples, with AC in the bedrooms was a life saver! The porch has an ocean view and is very close to all of the action. We walked everywhere, 5 minutes to the split. The only draw back was that there was a glass table in the rental that broke... More

If you want a nice room, but not much else, this place is fine. The rooms looked fairly new, were clean, and had good air conditioning. The wi-fi worked well in our room, and there was a shared balcony out the front which overlooked the road, and then the sea. The reception staff were friendly enough, but didn’t offer much... More
