“Beyond our expectations - Highly Recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We can't say enough on our experience at the Barefoot Beach. Susan, Ashley (little Shade) and John were so accommodating. We stayed there for 15 days and they made us feel like old time friends. We had cold beer in our fridge for when we arrived, which was so refreshing after a long flight and dealing with the heat. They would stop to say "hi" when we were lounging outside and constantly ask if there was anything they could assist with. I even had major hair tangling issue after a long day of snorkeling and nothing I tried would get it untangled. Susan to the rescue gave me some fantastic conditioner and even spent time helping me untangle the mess. Tell me where in the world you would get such humble attention? Thanks Susan!!!

Because I booked our accommodations last minute we stayed in 3 different units on the property with the last 10 days in the front suite. All units were very clean and had everything we needed. We look forward to staying here in the future. Thanks again to for the great stay!!!

We were only able to stay for one night, as we booked last minute, and the place was full. Susan helped us find another place to stay for the rest of the week we were on the island. She negotiated a deal for us, and said she found a place she would have her family stay in if she couldn't fit them all.
Barefoot was very nice and clean, the recommendations Susan had for us were all right on. I'd be happy to stay with them again! This time I'll book a little earlier:)
Thanks for your great help Susan!

Right on the beach, own private dock to hang out (both in the sun or shade), everything you need is right there. Susan, Ashley & John were great hosts. Very welcoming and gave us great advice on businesses and restaurants in the area. Real down to earth people.
Stayed in the room near the office - comfortable, has TV, refrigerator, coffee maker, a few utensils, 2 beds(queen & twin), shower was really good - (I read a lot of reviews where they said it wasn't, that is not true.)
Beautiful, relaxing place to stay. Chairs out in the front of each room to relax. Also the dock was awesome! I would totally stay here again. The hotel is in a nice quiet area of Caye Caulker, still close to everything but not near all the bars. So it is quiet and peaceful. I miss it already!

We just got back from an amazing trip to Caye Caulker. We stayed at Barefoot Beach. Susan and Ashley were so nice to us, always checking to make sure that we had all that we needed, called for tours, recommended restaurants. The place was right on the water, beautiful views and very clean.
Thank you so much! We so enjoyed our stay!

Very small rooms, pretty old furniture, HEAVILYy overpriced, in a quiet area about 15 walking minutes away from the center. The beach for Caye Caulker is not that bad, but don't stay on the island if want to go swimming or enjoy the beach - there are much better places than on Caye Caulker.
You will find other rooms for a better deal on Caye Caulker, so can't really recommend to stay there!

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...
