“Clean basic boring”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

This is your basic North American small motel room. New/Clean/Bland - Not really what we were looking for. Said kitchette but no way to even boil water. They charge extra for safe storage of passport, had to ask for soap and do not even supply drinking water. Many better options at half the price.

Hi Swimfisher,

Thank you for your comment. We always appreciate a comment on trip advisor be it good or bad. We like when we are told how to improve our services so we may greatly serve our guests. We were happy to host you and your friend in Pancho’s Villas the two nights you were here. We did provide you with a top stove and a kettle. We would like to know if these did not work. We are not aware and have no knowledge of any charges made to your card regarding any extra storage of passports. Please let us know what you meant by extra charges. We do provide soap and shampoo in the rooms but if at any time our guests are in need of more, we are always willing to offer you more if needed. Regarding the water, we appreciate your comment and are now providing water to our entire guests. Thank you once again and have a blessed weekend.

The island is so small, that we had a view of both oceans from our second story deck. Rooms were clean, a functional kitchen (although local foods, like the Bargain Man and Caye Caulker Pizza next door, offer reasonably priced food so you might want to dine out). The staff were friendly and helpful with tours, and did a good job accomodating our needs.

This was our most expensive room on the island at $61. We got a discount due to the mosquitos and noise from the bar next door.

The room was clean and a decent size for us as a couple. Clean bed sheets on the double bed.

Tv and WiFi.

Fan.

Fridge.

Microwave....why.?


Decent bathroom, toilet, sink and shower.


Good security.

Good service eg provided mosquito coils, helpful.

The rooms are very large (a bedroom, bathroom and full kitchen/living room) and in excellent condition. This is right centrally located and we could get to everything in a 1 minute walk.

The owner was very nice and the room comes with free wifi.

Highly recommended.

The room was actually a one bedroom apartment with all amenities. Great hot water and water pressure, the a/c was very cold. The two queen beds were comfortable. The free wi-fi worked great....very important for my wife to be able to see emails and for posting photos to facebook. The hotel was very close to the main street with all the restaurants, bars etc. Also, the airstrip was about a ten minute ride by "taxi".

Room Tip: Only six rooms, so make early reservations and pay in advance.

Our family of four spent 1 week in Caye Caulker at the Pancho's Villa. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay in this little beach town. The owners was both very welcoming. The owners daughter was managing the property and did a nice job. Our room was simple, but perfect. There is a kitchenette with small table and a couch. The room was cleaned daily. The porch was a great place to sit and read and watch the afternoon storms.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

The best part of this modern and spacey rental, is the owner. She is very earnest and can help you with any questions or reccomendations. Plus, her husband has the most inexpensive and worthwhile snorkeling trips available. She is really honest and cares abt her guests. The room was pretty nice. There was a weird mothball smell in the bathroom and there was 1-3 seconds of hot water in the shower. I had a hard time sleeping b/c of dogs barking via the property in back. Overall, I would stay here again,,,i think.
