We stayed here for two nights with a tour group but seriously considered stumping up for somewhere else. We were downstairs in the main building which has seen better days. Our bathroom was a mess with something gross smeared around the toilet seat and thick mould around the shower nozzle. Everyone from out tour commented on how the shower water... More

First of all, Tom's Hotel is located quite a walk from the hotspots of activity on Caye Caulker - if you are thinking of going to Caye Caulker, pick something closer to the northern end of the island. Whilst Tom's Hotel covered all the basics of a short stay on a budget hotel, it was reasonable for the price. We... More

Basic accommodation here. Our room had a street light outside and there was no way of blocking the light out. Also very noisy from the hallway. All the doors are self closing and they slam shut so you are kept awake all night with slamming doors. You had to be lucky to get hot water, but at least with the... More

We had different rooms. The one staying in the main building (concrete) all said the rooms are too hot. They have 3 cabanas outside, and that's what you want if you stay there. Most of the rooms in the building are on shared bathroom basis. Other than that the hotel is on the other end to the split, which means... More

Let me start by saying both Tom and his family are lovely and the location of the hotel is only a short walk up the beach to the main area (although a 20 minute walk from the split). We stayed here with our tour group and everyone had the same complaints. Rooms are ridiculously hot and beds / pillows are... More

I stayed in this accommodation with a tour group and found it to be adequate for the short time we were there. I shared an upstairs room with a friend and the majority of the other rooms were occupied by our tour. The room is quite large, however sparsely furnished. There is a ceiling fan and numerous louvers which assist... More

We stayed here as part of a tour and I assume that the only advantage of this place is that it is cheap. Basic doesn't even really begin to describe it. Soap is not provided - make sure to bring your own - and whether you'll have hot water is a bit of a lottery. The rooms are not particularly... More

Caye Caulker is the most wonderfully peaceful place to stay, and Tom's Hotel is an ideal lodging to call it a night. My girlfriend and I spent a night in one of the rooms, which gets points for being so cheap, but we really loved the cabanas. A short walk from the ferry and right by the water.

We stayed here on a organised tour. One of the worst places I've ever stayed in. No SOAP at all, not even on the basin for hand washing. The street light and the hallway light stays on all night and both my windows were right near both lights, super bright, like daylight in the room. A drain ran outside my... More

A friend and I stayed at toms for 5 nights- double bed, shared bathroom, paid 22$usd total per night. There's a beautiful view and the location is on the chiller side of the island. Our beds were clean and pretty comfy, and the ceiling fan kept us cool. It's definitely not luxurious, but I've stayed in some sketchy places and... More
