If you are going to Caye Caulker and you want to be close to everything but just enough out of the way so you have plenty of peace and quiet, this is your place.
Really just exactly what I was hoping for. My fiance and I were celebrating our engagement and we (by default) went there at the "busiest time of the year" (new years) and we had all the tranquility we wanted. It was great.
The hotel has free use of the kayaks and bikes (perfect cause they cost a pretty penny other places and they are a must for exploring the island). There is only one other room, and we only saw our neighbors 1 or 2 times the 5 days we were there.
Tom was a blast too, and Amanda and Kim were helpful as well. To be honest, I went into the situation a little shaky and left with a happy smile on my face.
Note: I gave the "Rooms" a 3 simply because there are only two rooms, which is good thing if you want your privacy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Leeside Rooms in brief: A unique hotel located in a tranquil Caribbean setting...Where guests enjoy cleanliness, comfort, beautiful sunsets and an abundance of exotic marine life just outside their door. Leeside Rooms...More details: A fine guest house located on the laid back island of Caye Caulker, off the coast of Belize and close to the world's second largest living barrier reef. Leeside Rooms include two waterfront efficiency units and a three bedroom two-level house located just north of the water taxi pier on the quiet lee side of the village - right next door to Belize Diving Services. From Caye Caulker it is a 40 minute water taxi ride to the mainland of Belize where guests can enjoy zip-lining, cave tubing, explore Mayan ruins, eco-tour, deep sea fish, snorkel, dive, visit the zoo - or just read a book and relax. :) We are encouraging a small marine sanctuary which is emerging right at the Leeside dock area. Without even getting in the water you can enjoy observing black spiny urchins, sea horses, the odd-looking batfish, sting rays, juvenile barricuda, red snapper, crabs, infant conch, herons, egrets, and a host of other marine life in their natural habitat. Enjoy beautiful sunsets, snorkeling, sunning on the dock, or just relax and read a book on on the shady part of the beach. ... more less
