I would definitely recommend this hotel while staying in Caye Caulker, Belize! It has soft beds(which are hard to find in most of Belize) and all the amenities of U.S. hotels. It's also in a great location, close to the beach, centrally located, and close to the water taxi to Belize City.

rented the cabin out back through caye caulker rentals. the place was terrible, sitting across from a construction site. they made us pay all 7 nights up front before even showing us the place. tired and exhausted from the trip, we unfortunately did so and after one night asked for a refund for part of the reservation. they refused to give us back any money. we would have been willing to accept the three night cancellation fee, but they refused. now we are disputing the charge through our credit card company.

do yourself a favor and stay elsewhere. we ended up at the lazy iguana hiotel which seems to be the best hotel on the island. at only $30 more a night, the difference was huge. for $30 more a night, u get free wireless, breakfast every day, a pool, free kayak rentals, quiet and peace of mind.

Probably our favorite place in central america.

The hotel is on the main road (although there are only a few roads on caye caulker). the room was really nice. Clean, relatively big, nice size bathroom with good pressure and hot shower. There was also cable TV for those who like it. Sitting at the terrace was really nice as well. It was breeze and relaxing.

The only issue is that reception closes early (around 7pm) so make sure you let them know if you are arriving late.

We had to leave one day earlier and they refunded us for the last night which was nice as we didn't give them any notice.

Overall opinion - very good and would definitely recommend.

The bad was so comfy as well

The hotel is located on the main street (front street) and in the center. It is equal distance to the other end of the island and to the Split. There is no wifi, but there is fan or aircon and tv. There are metal bars on the windows, which adds extra security to the rooms. Rooms are clean and roomy. Tv has lots of channels.

we spent 3 nights here as we were on a GAP tour - so not our choice of hotel. the beds were very hard, the bathrooms were dirty and the shower was a mere dribble.

there was also no free internet...something that most of the hotels hotels offered

apart from being painted in rainbow colours the hotel is a bit of an eye sore.

the island is beauitful and there were much better accomodation on the island elsewhere.

The Rainbow was very VERY basic. I only stayed one night since I was alone and didn't feel very safe... the balconies are all shared/communal. A few doors down I found a private apartment (Chila's Cabin) for a few dollars more. That room includes a mini-fridge, coffee maker, TV, AC, and a private balcony overlooking the water. It even has a hammock! Chila has only the one room to rent, but if you can get it - it's WONDERFUL!
