“Excellent hotel close to everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2011

I fully enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were clean and the beds were fantastic. Even though it was downtown, it was still quiet in the hotel. The front desk staff were delightful and very helpful. The rooftop view was amazing as well. Even in peak season, we were able to get a great room for $80 a night. Totally reasonable for the island. We stayed in Room 303 which had a great view from the room as well.

Great hotel in the center of Caye Caulker. It was exactly what we were looking for. Reasonably, priced, clean, quiet, comfortable rooms with A/C. Helpful front desk staff. Caye Caulker is pretty small, so this hotel is minutes walking from everything. Only down side is that it doesn't have its own beach area with hammocks and docks, like some other hotels.

I will definitely be back.

Caye Caulker Plaza Hotel was recommended by some friends and we found it worthy of recommendation. The reception was pleasent and the room was clean and well maintained. We appreciated their willingness to help us find what we were looking for on the island and supplied Aloe Vera plants to sooth my sunburn. They even sent us the items we had left behind. I doubt if we have ever had that kind of hospitality before. A great big bouquet to the staff at Caye Caulker Plaza Hotel.

Recently spent four nights at the Plaza Hotel with my three twenty-something kids. We had two rooms on the first floor, which were very clean with comfortable beds. I had trouble getting hot water in the shower, but I think that was user error. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was not offered while we were there. Not really sure why, but we had breakfast elsewhere on the island which was very good. There are only two drawbacks, 1) it’s not on the water, but nothing is far from the water on Caye Caulker; and 2) the water smelled awful, like sulfur, but I have a feeling that is something out of the hotel’s control. It got better as it ran. I had read a lot of horror stories about hotels on Caye Caulker, so this hotel was a pleasant surprise. I don’t need posh, but clean is very important to me and I would recommend this hotel to other travelers.

I was really nervous about this place as I'd only seen a couple of pictures online, but turned out to exceed my expectations. Conveniently located (keep walking straight from the water taxi station to the middle street)--the rooms were well-furnished, complete with a mini-fridge, and very clean. The shower head was nicer than at my own house! The balcony off our room offered a fun vantage point for people-watching at the busy intersection below (which was totally quiet after about 8 PM) and we were always comfortable with a fan, AC, and free in-room wifi.

Hard to say anything negative about a free breakfast, but in the spirit of full disclosure, the breakfast here--right down to the coffee--is impressively bad (and amusingly, although we asked for it at 8:30 three days in a row, it came at 0745, 0800 and 0900). It comes from the Chan's Fast Food next door, so I probably wouldn't recommend going there, either! Luckily, it's located right next door to a great--and cheap--bakery and down the street from the fantastic hidden-gem Sea Garden Cafe (freshly-made when you order--right down to the tortillas--salbutes and panades, fantastic lobster burritos, delicious smoothies--go there...do it!).

As most of the beaches in Caye Caulker are privately owned by the hotels abutting them, you have to hike it to the Split to get some beach space. We never really had a problem, though, finding a shady spot to camp out there. If you're going to stay inland, I highly recommend the Plaza for it's rooftop deck--360 degree views of the island, great people-watching spot, and a nice, breezy place to spend the afternoon if the beach at the Split is getting buggy or you're just feeling too lazy to hike back to the beach!

The Plaza on Caye Caulker was awesome! They did such a good job taking care of us. The hotel is affordable, but still very comfortable. The Island is small, so walking from one side to the other is easy and fun! The food on the Island is excellent; but the breakfast "included" is just fast food, and it isn't very good. We recommend the bakery that is literally right next door, it has some amazing bread!!

It took awhile for us to find an availability for any hotel on Caye Caulker as we didn't really look until the week before we left. I mass emailed a bunch of hotels and Caye Caulker Plaza was one that replied with rooms available for our group of 6. After reading other reviews from TripAdvisor, we rented 3 rooms, $80/night/room, we stayed 2 nights and were very happy with our choice.
This hotel is only 2 short blocks walk from the Caye Caulker Water Taxi ($12.50 roundtrip pp from Belize City). They were supposed to send someone to get us but I guess they forgot, not that it really mattered considering how close they were. The front desk did apologize when they found out though and offered to arrange someone to help us with our luggage when we left.
We got 3 different rooms, all on the 3rd floor which is a walk-up. You may have to carry your luggage depending on there is any help, our lady got the guy from next door to carry our suitcases. My room was a double-double room but they are all essentially the same. There is a key that functions as a key to the electricity for the lights, fan and tv. There is an AC that is remote controlled, they ask you to turn everything off to conserve energy when you leave. There is a fridge that you have to turn on to use. There is no safe to lock up valuables. There is no phone so don't expect wakeup service if you need to get up early. I'd recommend bringing a travel alarm or a watch that does that. There is also wifi internet you need to get a password for but connection was slow and sometimes iffy.
The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are clean, the only problem was the showers that tended to leak water outside the stall because there is a gap in the glass door so be prepared to put towels on the floor. We also found a water roach one day but we took care of it and didn't have any problems after that. If you walk up to the roof you'll get a beautiful view of the water to the west. There wasn't any coffee that I knew of up here but there was a picnic bench and 2 lounge chairs so you could always bring your own food.
They provided us with a buffet breakfast (toast, fresh fruit, sausage, eggs, potatoes, milk, juice) the first day which was great! We crossed the street to Chan's Kitchen for this. The next day they did it room service style which was just ok.
It is only a 15min walk to The Split which is the only swimmable area to the island. There are tons of restaurants that are right in the area but then again everything on the entire island is close by and walkable. There are supermarkets, ice cream shops, tour companies and bars on the island so you're pretty much set.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. I was very happy with my stay here!
