We had a double room with a private bathroom and a small kitchenette. There's a comfortable hammock on the porch. It's on the "main" street but it's quiet and calm. The room was absolutely spotless, we gladly tipped the cleaning ladies for doing a fantastic job. Close to everything. Wifi worked very well. Very recommended.

We stayed two nights here in an upper cabana at the back of the property. Probably the quietest unit available as it is set back from the street and construction out front. There is a fridge and coffee maker available in the room. Ensuite bathroom with hot water shower and atrocious mattresses. It is like sleeping in a trampoline with... More

Great budget hotel in a fantastic location (right in the middle of everything). Loved looking straight onto the beach from our hammock and our room was kept lovely and clean. Our only negative was the building works which were carried out in front of the rooms for the first few days - we weren't warned of this prior to booking... More

My Husband and I have been going to Caye Caulker for about 10 years/twice a year and have always stayed at the De Real Macaw. We have since built our own house on the North side but still stay a couple of days there to visit the owner. The rooms are very decent and comfortable. The yard is always kept... More

We have stayed here before and love the property. Called to reserve and asked it a discount would be granted to a local(we live in BZ) as had been done before. They would check with mgr and contact me by email. Never did. Called back and was told no discount. I said ok but I want to reserve anyway. Girl... More

Susan, I am so sorry that you are overly upset over a mistake that was done with the room pricing. I had explained to you that I had to confirm the high and low season prices with the owner/manager, since am relatively new here at the hotel, hence the reason I DID NOT run your card. The prices of all... More

Very friendly staff right on the Main Street of town. The room was a good size but the beds were a little squishy and thin for my taste. The ac worked well and everything was very clean. For the money, this place was well worth it. They unfortunately have a hugs sand pile blocking the view, but it is needed... More

My wife and I stayed at “De Real Macaw” Hotel, between the Christmas and New Year holidays. You couldn’t ask for a more convenient location, on Caye Caulker, Belize, or a hotel offering more value, for your money. De Real Macaw is located right on Front Street (this is where most of the action happens), across from what essentially is... More

The staff and owners of this place are very warm and welcoming. The room is pretty basic but is kept very clean and is in a great location. There really is not any beach side view but it is right across the street beyond a few stands. There is reggae music that plays pretty loudly throughout the day but it... More

Loved the view and the management. There were several options on the island where you could get more for your money. Pretty much everything in Caye Caulker is within a block of the beach. Good location.

This guesthouse is right in the center of anywhere you want to go with beautiful ocean views right in front. As of this writing, there is a lot of sand being moved around on the beach in front, so for a full sea view, you will definetly want an upper room. Otherwise, great care is taken regarding cleanliness of the... More
