Quite spacious and clean rooms, right in front of the beach! It's a nice hotel with colorful rooms! Service is good. However, two out of the three nights that we stayed it was so noisy in the area of the hotel's bar that it was hard to fall asleep!

I'm in agreement with the earlier reviewers of 2016. I have stayed here 3 times. This last time was a nightmare. It was loud all morning all day nearly every day. I stayed in the front room this time. Her new bar called the Sip & Dip with their ear splitting what they classify as music is more like random... More

This is a local hotel that is a cover for a very loud bar. Checked in Thursday and out this afternoon. At 6:45 AM the music started I walked out and was greeted by staff who were jamming with morning. Yesterday was quiet and peaceful as I walked out to greet the beautiful sea bounded by the barrier reef in... More

This was our second time staying at Mara’s place. There had been lots of changes since last year. The formally private dock, covered, with hammocks where we had our daily naps, or just chilled and enjoyed the ocean breeze is now gone and has been turned into a bar. The bar is beautiful, well constructed and a great place to... More

I have stayed here at least 3 times the past 8 years and it used to be a good value guest house. I had booked a week this time but wanted to move out the next day. Mara has retired and now her son, Justin, is running it. I have moved south 4 hotels away and can still hear his... More

Mara and her family run this establishment. Its great for budget minded travelers who want to be close to the swimming areas of Caye Caulker. Slightly away from the center of town but near where people congregate to swim its the perfect location with a sea view. The bar caters to locals and travelers and Karissa and Justin do a... More

There were three of us who stayed in a 2 bed room. Nothing fancy but clean, affordable and very convenient (close to the split and the hotel owns the dock opposite so you can use the dock whenever you please). We slept very well (not loud at all). The ladies at the front desk were nice and very chilled out.

I was working in Belize and decided to head over to Caye Caulker. My last visit was in 1990 and found it significantly changed, but still nice. Since it was low season I didn't make reservations and just wandered around. Mara's Place is close to the Split. I had a wide choice of rooms and chose #4. It is up... More

We found Mara's after walking into all the hostels and hotels on Caye Caulker. We decided on Maras because of its cost and fast wifi. The room was perfect- a full bed, some books, a closet nook, and an in room bathroom. Though there was no AC, there was a good fan and a decent breeze. We also really appreciated... More
