After scouring and cross checking loads of travel websites and reading reviews, we chose to book 2 nights at Seaside Cabanas for our time in Caye Caulker. We could not have been happier! The hotel was very conveniently located across the street from the water taxi stand. We were able to check right into our nice, clean and cool room. The hotel is modest, but the simplicity and hospitality go a long way. It mixes modern standards with a Belizean vibe. Our favorite part was our private rooftop deck, complete with 2 lounge chairs, a hammock, and a plunge pool/hot tub! We spent hours up there every day. The temperature was perfect. If we were hot it would cool us down. In the evenings, the temperature was a perfect compliment to the tropical breeze. The hotel is just a few steps from the sea, so we alternated between wading in the water and swimming in the pool. Another great memory and a big positive factor in our stay there was the bartender Jubalus. We talked for hours about Mayans and Hieroglyphics. He was very sweet, knowledgeable about the area, professional, and intelligent and we loved spending time with him in the bar. The bar also offers free filtered water. We bought a few bottles upon arrival and ended up refilling them and keeping them in our room refrigerator which worked out great! They offer a sweet and simple continental breakfast that consisted of a Belizean danish and fresh fruits of watermelon and papaya. There was a security guard during the nights, which added in an extra degree of safety though in general the area is quiet and secure. Another bonus was free WI-FI! I can't wait until next time! We will definitely be staying at Seaside Cabanas again. I hope they never change a thing!
Paying the extra money for one of the standalone bungalows is DEFINITELY worth it! Cabanas #1 and #2...
