“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We had a great time at Barefoot Belize.

The first thing we noticed were the hammocks outside. As soon as we checked in, we ran over to them and didn't want to leave.

We stayed in a 3-person cabana, which had a king size bed as well as a futon. The room was extremely spacious and even had a huge kitchen and private porch.

The mother/daughter team were very hospitable and had great recommendations for us for activities and transportation safety. The other staff members were also very friendly and helpful.

We will definitely return to Barefoot Belize on our next trip to Caye Caulker.

I walked almost the entire island - including the mangroves - and I saw all of the rental options on Caye Caulker. There are two resort-type hotels which we had also looked at prior to booking Barefoot Beach. They were expensive and one was west facing (not good winds) and the other was ocean side. Both were in the high traffic areas where there tend to be lots of people and carousing. Both faced the water, but neither were directly on the water; you had to walk across the main road. Barefoot Beach is in a quiet area away from the crowds but within easy walking distance of stores, Belize Dive shop, grocers, and restaurants. We prefer a unit with a kitchen so we can make some of our own meals. Because we wanted a specific unit for awhile, we actually stayed in two units. The staff took all of our things to the new unit. Both units had couch/chair/TV area, dining area, kitchen, bathroom and separate bedroom. They had nice porches where we could see the ocean, watch the birds, and read a book in peace. After seeing all of the options first hand, I can say that Barefoot Beach is the best accommodation in Caye Caulker. the place next door seems newer and maybe a bit more swank, but there is a wall separating access to the ocean and no porches. We were there when 1BelizeFanatic was there so what she said is accurate.

Room Tip: All units face the ocean. Oceana has best view with a porch. Parrots nest is on a second floor and...

I was in Barefoot for 11 days and it was like staying with family. Susan, Ashley and John were super. They were freindly without being intrusive and very knowlegeable about the island. Cottage was very clean and nicely appointed. Even the futon in the living room was comfy. Barefoot is in a quiet location but near enough to be an easy walk to anywhere I wanted to go.

Room Tip: Oceana Cottage is the best cottage

We have been around the Caribbean at all types of hotels. From luxury to marginal. This small hotel makes you feel pampered but is very simple. We just now got home from Caye Caulker after 12 nights at the Barefoot Beach. It was comfy, very friendly, and it was quite hard to leave. A small, clean, quiet place, with nice people. The location is great, easily walkable to amazing restaurants. All types of attractions can be accessed from the many local dive, snorkel and tour shops. It's a friendly low-key relaxed hotel in a freindly low-key relaxed town. We LOVED it.

Room Tip: Each room is different. Ours had a nice view porch, which we loved.

We loved loved Barefoot Beach Belize! WE fell in love with the hammocks, the room was precious with a very nice large tiled shower with plenty of hot water. The a/c was great and kept us plenty cool at night. We got on our complimentary bikes and strolled all around the island. John, Ashley and baby Shade and Susan were Wonderful and have become everyday pen pals. We would love to move there that is how much we enjoyed our trip. The water was excellent the hammocks so relaxing that we didnt feel the need to do much more than just lay around and enjoy the view. We are returning July 24th and can't wait to return to "island life" and see our new found friends. The locals are very nice and the bottled water and beer Belikin was Fabulous!!!!! Peace and quiet is what we went for and that is what we got! Room was cute, clean and the wonderful colors of the building were great. We can't say enough about Barefoot other than we fell in love with the locals, the "go slow" island vibe and our inn keepers Susan, Ashley, Shade and John. If you like fishing John can get you a boat and a guide with fresh cold pinapple served in between casts into the crystal clear blue water. Just go and enjoy your stay John will be happy to grab yall a couple of coconuts and open them up and you can eat and drink the fresh coconut there is Nothing like it so refreshing. Caye Caulker is a wonderful island and we will return many times, can't express how much we loved everything!

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Barefoot Beach. It is a short walk from town, which means that it is quiet and peaceful. The service was great, as were the rooms, which were very clean and inviting. The perfect place to enjoy the island.

Leave the world as you know it behind and start by booking your stay at these perfect apartments a short walk down the beach from restaurants and bars. Hang out on the private pier, scuba dive the blue hole, snorkel protected reefs, and eat all the grill snapper you can eat. And of course enjoy the Belikin beer. Caye Caulker and the Barefoot Beach are highly recommended!
