The picture of this hotel that I saw on the Internet made it look pleasant but in person it is a drab, boxy, concrete bunker-like building, different from the many brightly colored light houses that dot this wonderful tropical island. It is located on a corner that is neither pretty or charming, several blocks from the water with no water views that I could see. Though the hotel is larger than most here the only staff I laid eyes on was a clerk who wordlessly checked us in and calmly watched us drag our bags up the stairs. The hallway to the room was dark and the room had an institutional feel. We met another couple who were as disappointed as we were. The guy told me that in retrospect he realizes that he chose the hotel for a silly reason - because it popped up so often on hotel search engines. I realized I had made the same mistake. Somehow I thought that indicated it was a good hotel. I would recommendation to other travelers that they search off the beat and track on the Internet or spend some time looking at guide books before you book a hotel because it keeps popping up on searches. Most of the accommodations in Caye Caulker are small places that won't appear on the major hotel search engines. When we decided to switch hotels, we found there was lots of room. We found a great place at about the same price but with charm, local character and lots of friendly local staff and we plan to come back in July.
