Ray Caye is AMAZING! Not only is the island beautiful, peaceful and relaxing, but the STAFF truly makes this place special. This was my third trip to Ray Caye, once as a mother/daughter trip, second trip for my daughter to get married, and third trip was to celebrate a new career for me. I thought of exploring a different place in Belize for the third trip but could not even imagine anyplace better than Ray Caye. When you have found paradise...why look any further. The staff are phenomenal and truly treat you like family. We snorkeled, SCUBA, paddle boarded, got massages, and just enjoyed our time together. To top it off, the Lionfish Grill is amazing! Two of our 5 people were VEGAN. They figured they would eat rice and beans for a week, but no, the chef was able to accommodate this and made some of the most amazing vegan dishes for every meal - and dessert!! Truly this was the icing on the cake for this trip. He made a curry dish that was to die for! If you are up in the air on coming, I can guarantee that this will be the most amazing place you have ever visited with the most amazing people working there. I can't wait for my fourth trip...! Lastly...on my bucket list was to see a WHALE SHARK and we were so lucky that on our second whale shark dive this behemoth came from the depths and did a drive-by not once, but twice. I can tell you it was the most surreal - amazing experience EVER and so glad I could share that memory with my Ray Caye family!…
From looking at the pictures and reading the reviews we were prepared to be impressed but Ray Caye absolutely smashed our high expectations in every way. We are a family of 4 and we were in a beautiful 2 bed, 2 bath linked villa which gave us plenty of space - much appreciated by our boys! The terraces opened onto the sand with the coral reef only steps away - perfect. The food is outstanding as are all of the waiting and bar staff, the pools are lush and the boys enjoyed using the gym everyday (I enjoyed the many quiet hammock spots instead). The reef and the activities were the star for us - we snorkelled, paddle boarded and kayaked. The kids LOVED the slide and diving platform! From snorkelling off the island pier we saws rays, dolphin, eel, millions of tropical fish and best of all a super healthy reef to support them all! It's also well worth doing a couple of the boat trips to neighbouring islands and parts of the reef, We were very well looked after by Elroy, William and Jeff who took us to Laughing Bird Caye, Silk Cayes, Fishermen's Island and all the best places to swim with turtles and sharks. Every day was amazing and we can't wait to come back!…
The BEST place ever!! Not to mention the amazing staff AND food- can not wait to go back!! We love ray caye! Couldn’t have picked a better place! Loved every minute of it! Ray Caye will always have a special place in our hearts❤️
Can't imagine it being much better than this: a small, beautiful island, wonderful food, accommodating and helpful staff and incredibly beautiful waters all around. For our honeymoon, Ray Caye was incredible.
We had the best time in Ray Caye! The weather was absolutely perfect! The water was cool and warm and super clear! The fishing never disappointed. We caught Holy Makerel, Yellowtail Amberjack and we even had LOBSTER 🦞!!!! The Chef cooked it for us and it was sooooooo delicious! The rooms were roomy and clean!! The entire staff was absolutely professional, happy, caring, kind and went the extra mile to accommodate all our needs. We fell in love with all the above and have decided that it’s a MUST to visit once a year or more if we can!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU RAY CAYE! We have given you a Five Star Stay and we miss you already!!! See you soon!!
We visited Ray Caye in April of 2022. From the reservation process with Ardie to the pick up at the Placencia Airport to the drive to the dock, the boat ride to the island, to the awesome Villa, breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snorkeling, checking out, back on the boat again to our drop off to the airport - everything was spectacular. In between all of that there was a full staff of awesome people who made our stay at Ray Caye not only an awesome vacation but felt like we were home, part of the family. We want to thank Cynthia for being an awesome hostess and Marion, Jeff, Sean for all the help over at the dive shop and getting us all settled with our gear for snorkeling. Thank you ton Yanik for the awesome job while we went snorkeling. The turtles, coral reefs and sting rays were awesome. The vidoes he shot with the go pro even better. Thanks Sydney for taking us out. The grounds were well kept and the island vibe was perfect. The Snorkeling at the dock and the slide into the water was a great way to relax. To save the best for last the service from Morris and Melvin was by far one of the best experiences I have had on a vacation. Their service at the restaurant, their stories, and their humility, made the vacation spectacular. Ask Melvin to surprise you with a drink; he makes them well. Overall Ray Caye is a great experience.…
Everything was wonderful. We had a party of 6, ranging from 2 kids to grandparents and everyone had a great time. We rented one of the villas thinking we could play games when needed only we were so busy that we really only slept there. The snorkeling was great, the food was great, the people were great, the lighted dock and the big slide were a big hit. I am the only vegetarian in the group so I really appreciated how the chef came up with a meal for me each evening and the kids loved being able to go up to the bar and order their milkshakes and frozen concoctions. The guys went fishing and caught enough fish for our supper.
I'm not sure I can put into words just how amazing this island is!! We were first introduced to Ray Caye several years ago when some friends got married there, and let me tell you- we are addicted! This island has everything you could want or need for an idyllic island getaway! From the pristine beaches and grounds, to the amazing snorkeling right outside your lodgings, to the gourmet food and the spectacular staff, you can simply relax and enjoy life in paradise! Dasha and her team will cater to your every need! We are already planning to go back in 2023 and most likely every year thereafter! Highly recommend!!!
We had a wonderful stay at Ray Cay. Fabulous scuba diving, delicious meals, and outstanding staff! Crystal clear water with a great reef right off shore for snorkeling. Elroy and Melvin are stand outs!
Ray Caye is breath taking! Not only is it a gorgeous place, but the staff is also amazing! From the moment we stepped on to the island the staff went over and above to make us feel welcome. They are extremely courteous, helpful, and by the time you leave you will feel like part of their family! The food was amazing, we enjoyed every meal we had. There are so many activities available to keep you entertained or if you just want to relax there are plenty of hammocks. I honestly can say that was one of the best vacations I have taken and will definitely be returning for another great vacation!
