“Nice family, sweet quirky rooms, cool firepit hangout, laundry facilities.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

I only review places I really love and this is one of them. I can still taste the grilled fish we cooked on the open grill and bought from the family for practically nothing. A cool place that sits off the beach but has a good view of the local culture...ie right next to a football (soccer) field, which gets used regularly.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2010

A very friendly, family run place just by the soccer pitch in the middle of Caye Caulker - a great location close to restaurants and bars, and easy walking distance to the Split in one direction and the water taxi in the other.
My friend and I stayed in a first-floor room with a single bed and a double bed, and a sink in the room which was really handy. There were clean sheets and towels every other day, and even a couple of books in the room (which we swapped for ones we'd finished with!). The veranda caught the morning sun and was a lovely place to sit out for a while and watch the world go by.
Although the loos and showers were shared (we were only paying BZ 25 a night for both of us...), they were clean and there was always hot water.
We were also able to do a (big) machine load of washing for BZ 5 which was great - there are plenty of washing lines, and everything dried overnight even in October.
When we were choosing our room, we had a look in one of the cabanas, which had a kitchen and everything, so this would be a great option for people looking to stay a bit longer and cook for themselves too.

Sandy Lane is run by a friendly local family who live onsite. We stayed in one of the guesthouse rooms, which was airy, clean and had two beds (a double and a single), costing $25Bz per night, which is the best value for money you can get on Caye Caulker. The walls between the rooms are thin, so some noise can be heard by other guests, but we weren't disturbed by any noise from outside the building. There is a verandah outside the rooms with deckchairs for guests to enjoy the sunshine, and the accommodation is minutes walk from all amenities.

Sandy Lane is located at the middle of the village, so no ocean view. The rooms are nothing special, but they are quite good value at only $30 a night. No breakfast, but bakeries and grocery stores are just a minute's walk away. Also, no drinking water, so you have to buy that as well.
