“Best Hotel on the Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Stayed at the Island Magic for 5 nights in May 2013. After walking around the island, this little gem is CLEARLY the best buy on the island! An easy 5-minute walk from the water taxi port and we arrived at our destination. Staff was great, sparkling clean pool, and all the amenities of home in this tropical oasis! The Island Magic is in an excellent location... away from the bar noise in the evening, yet a quick 5-15 minute walk to get anywhere on the island (literally). Our room had 1 queen size bed and 1 twin bed with full kitchenette that we ended up not using. The beds were comfortable, room was clean, and A/c worked GREAT! Caye Caulker is a perfect getaway especially for those traveling on a budget! Food was really cheap, and there is quite a bit to pick from, all with in walking distance of this hotel. Would I stay here again? Absolutely!

Caye Caulker is a vibrant, colorful and timeless island and this hotel is just in the middle of everything
We arrive late and Britney was awaiting for us, check in was smooth, we get in to the room and at the beginning there was a funny musty smell, but disappears after turning on the A/C. we notice that reception closed after we arrived! , so there is no way to get any help after 7 pm , apparently is a common practice in Belize.
Our room was facing to the main street but that was fine for us, however there is a nice pool and ocean view rooms as well, room was spacious and clean, with a lovely wood decoration in the walls and ceiling , the kitchenette and fridge were really helpful during our stay too. The pool was great for my little kid and the view from the pier was beautiful.
Island Magic is just few steps from stores, fascinating restaurants, water taxis docking bays and bars.
Definetly we will be back!

Room Tip: ask for pool or ocean front side

We stayed for only one night, but loved the hotel, the place was beautiful, clean and very relaxing. We had a nice porch with a hammock outside our door looking out to the pool and ocean. The bar, restaurant had some munchy food, we had some chicken strips and was just fine for a little snack. The staff were nice, helpful and eager to talk about the island, giving recommendations for whatever you may like to do or eat. The pool was great and the room itself had a full kitchen, we did not use but saw there was everything you needed to cook if you wanted to. The beds were comfortable and the AC worked great. It was very hot so it was a nice relief to come in and have some AC.

Room Tip: We were on the 1st floor and had good access to the pool.

Caye Caulker is a hippie paradise. We were there in low season so it was not really busy. The hotel is a stones throw from the ferry ( 3 minute walk along the beach ). The rooms are large and comfortable with all you need to self cater, large fridge, cooker etc.),Air conditioning is great. We had a view of the pool and the sea, lovely. Hammocks on the balconies. Everything was clean. Wifi connection was good. We had a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the beach the higher up the better the view.

We spent 10 days at Island Magic and experienced the most pleasant restful time we can remember! The unit was clean, well appointed and if we needed anything all we had to do was ask. The staff was helpful, efficient and always full of cheer. The pool and deck were well kept and the bar on the water was our favorite place to be when not in the water or walking down the beach. We experienced some problems with the wifi connection but they got it fixed... after all not having email a for a day or so probably helped our relaxation. Great spot!!

Room Tip: Great view from the Penthouse!

We decided to go to the caye at the last minute and didn't make reservations. We heard that during the off season we should have no problem as a walk in. That was very true. After surveying the beachfront properties in the area we chose this hotel because it looked updated, had free wifi and, although we weren't looking for it, the pool was great.

Nice things: free water refills in the lobby, friendly staff, AC rooms, pool, bar with reasonably priced drinks, strong wifi signal, referrals for massages, restaurants, snorkeling and other activities, a fair price for the rooms.

Not nice: a little short on the availability of towels (oh well, just reuse!!!), and I saw a roach in the kitchen sink (probably unavoidable)

All in all I would certainly stay here again and recommend to anyone! !

10 days of Paradise! What a beautiful place. The staff made our stay one to remember. The rooms are large and most over look the Sea and the Reef just off shore. The food focuses on the islands local catch of the day. The fishermen pull up right at the resturant to display and sell their catch.
The pool area is one of a kind. Lots of Families and couples.The owners Wow. Need We say More.
Thank you Alina and Roger for an amazing stay.
