“A Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2005

My partner and I, along with another couple, just spent two weeks at De Real Macaw and loved it.

It was our 3rd time on the island and the 3rd place we have stayed.

This was easily the best of the bunch!

The location is wonderful (close to the split and "downtown". The view is great and Jesse and Peter (the owners) are extremely helpful but also very laid back.

THe rooms were clean and in good shape.

We are planning to stay here again our next time on Caye Caulker!

It's a great location and a great place. Jesse (the owner) was very friendly and helpful with where to go, what to do, as is everyone on the island. The accomodations are a bit cozy for 3 adults, but would be nice for a couple or young family. Good, clean accomodation, safe and convenient. What else could you ask for for $50US? Actually, there were quite a few people who had moved to De Real Macaw from other places because they were disappointed with their original accomodations, if that says anything.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2004

My family stayed here for four nights in July and thought it was great. Between the two bedrooms (one with bunk beds) and the futon in the living room, there was plenty of space for the five of us. Plus, there's a full kitchen and dining area.

It's across the street from the water and a very close walk to the split and the main part of the town (if there is a main part!).

The owners/staff were friendly, the room was clean and it's a nice, quiet place.

I would definitely stay there again.
