We stayed two nights on a lower unit, it was clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. Ample hot water, strong wi-fi, fridge, beer/wine opener and coffe maker were a nice extra we didnt get at other places. There a a few stray cats that are friendly that hang out around the hotel. We enjoyed feeding them and... More

We found De Real Macaw by luck as everywhere on the island was booked up. The owner was so friendly and helped us move our luggage from our other apartment which meant more time on the veranda people watching. 3 of us shared room 1 which has a long veranda over-looking Front Street with access to 2 hammocks and a...

The hotel itself is fine. They keep it clean, the staff is friendly, there aren't any bugs or anything but I wish I had known about the bar across the road that blasts bass-filled reggae music until 2-3 am every night. I am a light sleeper and had to sleep with headphones on (super uncomfortable) to be able to fall... More

Stayed in the upper cabana for 2 nights and it was great. Location is perfect, it's right in town, and it surprisingly wasn't loud at night. The owners keep a close eye on their property and are very nice. I even noticed security cameras in the office. The room was pretty small but roomie enough for a couple people. Very... More

I stayed here (in the upper cabana) for 5 nights and it was great! The location is perfect, the room was spotless and a cleaner came everyday to tidy and replace towels. A really lovely spot opposite the seafront...lots of dogs which are very friendly- they even have their own pet park.

I loved every minute of our stay here. The rooms were squeaky clean, and had full kitchenettes. There was AC and flat screen TVs with great cable! The location is in the middle of everything.. But it never got loud or crazy. We loved our stay! The water is right across the street and we walked to all the great... More

We stayed in a second floor loft room with a small balcony. We really enjoyed our stay here and would go back in the future. The price was reasonable and the room was clean and quite charming. Amazing location, close to everything. The room was private and fairly quiet. The staff seemed to be well organized.

Should you come by Caye Caulker I can strongly recommend Jessie and Rob’s place – De Real Macaw. Not only is it located centrally on the small island it is also hosted by some very friendly people – Jessie and Rob. And you can avoid feeling at home with them and their dogs and cats :-) The place is simple,... More

I stayed 5 nights here, and it was almost perfect!! There was an amazing breeze, it is in an ideal location, the patio was cute and had a good view of the main street, the air conditioning worked perfectly, comfortable beds, and everything was incredibly clean. The people who run the hotel are wonderful, and the dogs that spend their... More

We pretty much fell in love with Caulker the moment we walked off the water taxi dock. The golf cart taxi driver promised us an island tour if we would hire him to take us the few hundred yards to the hotel. So he gave us a mini-tour of the island and a quick stop at the Belikin wholesaler for... More
