The room is rustic, and located right across the street from the beach. The street is only traveled by walkers, bicycles and golf carts, so it's really no problem to walk across. We were able to hang our own hammocks on the porch. There is always fresh drinking water available, and they are very attentive if you need anything. The... More

This is our second trip to Caye Caulker. The term "go slow" is the mantra for the Caye. Things are changing rapidly! The small island has become the bumper car arcade for golf carts! No mo go slow! Development everywhere! I am amazed that in one year so much has occurred. For the most part the people are still friendly,... More

The room we had was small, there was A/C but no matter the setting it seemed to be the same temperature (not too cool). There were ants everywhere. It is located facing the beach but other than that not much to promote this hotel. Staff weren't very friendly and weren't there all the time. I would choose another hotel next... More

The only positive about this place is the location. THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONER, DO NOT BELIEVE THE DESCRIPTION!!! The only unit with A/C is the Condo apparently. Had we known that we would not have booked here. False advertising at its finest. Bugs everywhere, kind of dirty. Wish we would have stayed somewhere else.

If you want to experience the island as though you are practically a local, this is your spot! All the people here are fantastic, and the owner, Jessie, is a sweetheart! We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, with a/c, small kitchen, hammocks and a view of the beach and "street" life. We took great advantage of our balcony every... More

Very accommodating. The AC in June was very welcome. Clean and pleasant. Economical. Faces the beech and permits a wonderful breeze. Has larger and smaller rooms. We had a room with a kitchenette. Receptionist Kayla was very accommodating.

The hotel was in a great location. Booking.com said it would have air conditioning and sleep 3. When we checked in there was no air conditioning, one small room with a bunk bed that 3 people could sleep on, and bathroom. It also listed that the room had a beach view. It did if you looked around the rooms in... More

Very nice room with A/C, good shower, fridge. Housekeeping changes the sheets daily and tidies up. Safe gated area, inexpensive, good site manager on duty during the day and very helpful. All in all a very nice place. The only negative is that the location is right in the middle of a commercial street vendor area and the vendors are... More

Da Real Macaw was perfect for our stay- inexpensive and close to everything. Across the street from a little stretch of beach and close to restaurants, tour options, and the Split. Very slow wi-fi. AC worked well and was needed! Hammock on each unit was nice. Quiet at night. Very clean and staff was very helpful. Friendly dogs and cats... More

Great location along the waterfront and front street on Caye Caulker. Affordable place to stay, but you get what you pay for. Not luxurious by any standards, however, comfortable. We spent most of our time in the hammocks on our balcony looking out over the street and water.
