“Beautiful Oasis!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

This place was everything we had hoped it would be. The location is perfect. Far enough away from the main roads to be quiet and peaceful, but close enough that you can walk or bike in just a few minutes to get to restaurants and activities. Our ocean-view cabana (#6) was the perfect place to sleep and rest. The beds are comfy (queen and single); there are lots of screened windows and fans, so even without a/c we kept cool; the porch is lovely. Everything was very clean.

In addition to the cabana, Colin and Linda (who are just fabulous) provide everything you need to enjoy Caye Caulker. First, there is the amazing private dock. There's plenty of space for everyone to have their privacy. The hammocks in the shade at the end of the dock were just heaven. If you get hot, just slip into the water. It's a good place to swim. A short swim away, there's a very small artificial reef (marked by long sticks you can see from the dock), where we had fun snorkeling. Bikes are provided too, as well as two kayaks for the property (first come, first served).

When you arrive, Colin and Linda will give you an overview of the island, with helpful recommendations for restaurants and tours. If you want to arrange activities (either on or off Caye Caulker), they will call and make arrangements for you, using their trusted drivers and operators.

In short, Colinda Cabanas is everything you want for a vacation in paradise.

Loved the bikes to ride into town, and the kayaks for paddling along the shore! Our cabana was immaculate and had everything we needed. We did not get the AC and did not need it with the ceiling and wall fans, and the ocean breezes - even in the furthest back cabana! Colin and Linda were friendly and helpful: Colin even climbed a coconut tree and taught us how to open the fresh cut coconuts! The pier was beautiful and provided the perfect place to relax in hammocks or chairs. The staff was wonderful! Juan was very helpful and friendly, and takes wonderful care of the grounds. The ladies kept our cabana perfectly clean - the even changed the sheets daily and washed our dishes!
Everything looks just as it does in the pictures on the website. We were there for six nights and will go back again. We loved it!

We loved that the kayaks, snorkel gear, bikes, beach towels, and bottled water were all available with the room. The cabanas were fun and the pier was one of the top two piers, if not the best pier on the island! The owners were very nice and so were their hired help. We had a wonderful stay.

My husband and I spend five days of total relaxation at Colinda Cabanas. This was our first trip to Caye Caulker, so I relied heavily on trip advisor reviews to make my decision on where to stay. Cabana 1 above was perfect. The grounds where perfect. The location was perfect. The staff was amazing. . Juan the manager saw to our needs. Colin and Linda are blessed to have him . We will be back to Caye Caulker and Colinda Cabanas is the only place we will stay.

Tips: After reading reviews someone suggested a floatation device. I brought one and it was great to be able to just relax in the water off the pier. ( I left it behind . I hope someone else got to enjoy it.) Also we spoke to Juan and he had beer delivered to us so we didn't have to carry a heavy case( or 2) of beer thru town.

Room Tip: Cabana 1 is beach front upper unit with an amazing view. It is over the office so you hear abit of c...

It was not the coffee itself (which wasn't half bad) but instead the scene in front of me as I swung in the hammock of our beachfront cabana, watching the pelicans dive down to grab fish as the sun rose over the water.

A trip of a lifetime, my fiancé and I will never forget the impression Colinda Cabanas and Caye Caulker made. We plan to return at some point in the near future!

We stayed in the front cabin last week and it was fantastic! It was clean, comfortable, and convenient to town. The amenities were great- water, cooking utensils, coffee, towels, kayaks to borrow, bicycles. It was much nicer than I pictured, even after reading the reviews. The view was amazing and the close access to the pier was fantastic. I still miss it- wish I was there! Juan was exceedingly accommodating and helpful, and also a decent and really nice person. Thank you Juan! Would go back in a minute!

This review is a bit belated but I wanted to extend our appreciation to Colin and Linda for an excellent week! We rented the bottom front cabana and it was spacious and well appointed. We loved that it was in a quiet area of town and having bicycles was a nice touch. Everything is within easy walking distance and the only bad thing about our time here was leaving. We visited friends who stayed in a different hotel farther down the beach and their accommodations weren't anywhere as nice and were about the same price. We will definitely be back!
