This place is not only super affordable, but the customer service was awesome, the room was clean, and free bikes! I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Caye Caulker. We paid $10 USD less the nights before for a far inferior room, location, and experience, and had to pay $15 USD for bikes. Barefoot is the bomb!

The location was absolutely perfect for us -- away from the partying, right on the beach, and easy to get everywhere on bikes. (It is nice that the bikes are free.) We stayed in the Oceana Cottage and loved it! We were really impressed with how clean it was. Susan and Heidi were very pleasant and quite helpful. They were... More

We stayed at barefoot mid-May in one of the mini huts, very comfortable and the air conditioning was a winner, the free bikes are a nice touch as it makes everything about a 3 min cycle.Cost effective and close to the sea sswell as close enough to everything in town.

Loved it. Stayed there in early May in the standard room and as it was low season had the place to ourselves. So relaxing. Staff very nice and helpful. Swimming off the dock was great, hammocks and sunloungers available whenever we wanted them and having the bikes available was a lovely touch. Highly recommend

I think The Barefoot Beach is very simple but nice. Clean and the bed was very comfortable (Most hotels in caye calker are not fancy). Nice private dock.Heidi was very nice and helpful And we loved the cat.

Planning our 35th anniversary visit, we decided to stay at Barefoot Beach in one of the mini huts. Perfect accomodations for us! Adequate size bedroom with adjoining bath and alcove closet. Only thing missing was a stand for our luggage but we managed. No phone or tv, just peace and quiet on the southern area of the island. Free bikes... More

The room was SO MUSTY is was almost unbearable. The smell was in the sheets, the furniture, even the hammock outside. The room was also incredibly dark, having just one tiny window. The property is small and contacting employees can be a bit challenging. The owners live on premises and run the place, so there is no employees after a... More

cayemermaid, Owner at Barefoot Beach Belize, responded to this review

The "musty/sewer" smell we found was caused by a guest that cleaned a papaya in their sink and DOZENS of seeds ended up in the drain causing the water to stand and stink. We flushed the system so the smell has hopefully gone for good. (We did this while the guest was here along with completely freshening their room and... More

This place was awesome!!! We have nothing but positive things to say about Barefoot Beach. We stayed two nights in a mini hut. It included A/C, bikes, & an awesome dock with lounge chairs & hammocks. We plan on coming back to this place next year. The price was right & it was on the water.

Barefoot Beach is the perfect place to stay in the island. In previous visits I had stayed in two other places in Caulker, one right on main street and the other close to the Lazy Lizzard. Both of these places had been a bit cheaper, but noisier, dirtier and simply didn't have much of an atmosphere. Barefoot beach is in... More

We loved our stay at the Barefoot Beach Belize hotel. My 2 friends and I stayed in a cabana for 3 nights and it felt like home. Heidi and Susan were both very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, just a few minutes walk from the water taxi drop off. It was close enough to all the fun stuff... More
