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

We stayed in the Guest House- a 2 room apartment style place. We had a queen bed room, a bunkbed (single on top, double on bottom), living room with futon, kitchen, bathroom, and a porch with hammock and chairs, facing the reef. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and supplies. the location is located close to a busy section-... More

The guy who runs this place is a lovely guy, the rooms are great, wifi good, and right on top of the beach. He even gave us our 7th night free. We would highly recommend it!:) ........................

We spent 2 nights here and had a positive experience. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and available when we needed them. Each room has a hammock on the patio, perfect for lazing away the day. Caye Caulker is a small place, but De Real Macaw is located in the "center" of town, a short... More

Good location, although we had some noisy neighbors next door. The room was fine. None of the resorts are right on the beach, which is disappointing. The staff was very friendly. Rob was great, we had to catch a very early water taxi, & he stopped by to make sure we had a taxi ride to the pier. You can't... More

We chose to go to Caye Caulker because it was advertised as the more laid-back of the Cayes. We stayed at the Real Macaw right on the beach. We rented a 2-bedroom cabana, but one of the bedrooms had a single bed over a double bed, bunk-bed style and no a/c, while the other had a queen bed with a/c.... More

De Real Macaw offers a great location right in the middle of Front Street, clean and comfortable accommodations, welcoming staff, and good amenities. Our room had A/C, a private bathroom, a TV, and a basic kitchenette with a mini fridge and coffee maker. The room was small and a bit dim, but you won't spend much time indoors on Caye... More
