Seaside Cabanas is one of the higher end offerings of Caye Caulker, although still a relaxed mid-range type hotel. Overall, it got close to meeting our expectations, but it has some limitations. Perhaps this just reflects Caulker; prices escalate due to foreign tourists, but the vibe is still a backpacker island with some rough edges. The best thing about Seaside is the friendly housekeeping, reception and other staff. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and responsive. The location is also great, and overall it is nicely polished and maintained property. The pool is the ace feature, as the swimming options on Caulker are limited due to seaweed, boat traffic and the fairly average entry and current at the split. The pool and surrounding area is well kept and relaxing, although it can be quite crowded and, during our stay, became an all-day catch up venue for US visitors. There is little privacy.
We stayed in an upstairs room overlooking the pool and the ocean. The room and bathroom was fine, and the AC is pretty luxurious in the humid summer months. The view and breeze is great, although the balcony area is narrow and not ideal, as other guests cannot walk by while you are sitting there. The terraces on the ground level rooms looked more usable, although less private. (The Cabanas with private roof terraces looked much nicer.)
The electricity went off three times during our three night stay, which also shut off the water entirely. When we asked, we were told this was maintenance on the island that affected a number of properties, and was anticipated. However no-one told us what was going on in advance.
Consistently with how the hotel describes it, the breakfast offering is, at best, simply a gesture. A few sweet buns, some melon and coffee sitting on the bar...available until other guests eat it up.
I am not sure there are better options on the island, however that doesnt convince me Seaside Cabanas is a great choice. It probably depends how highly you rate the pool.

For those expecting a luxury resort, Caye Caulker is not the island to stay at. But for Caye Caulker, this place is stellar. It's really cheap for a view of the sea. Plus, there is a small pool that is quite casual, low key, and very friendly. It's a great place to meet people of all ages. And wi-fi works well. I would come back in a heartbeat!

I stayed 5 great nights here. The hotel is nice and small and it's on the seafront. it is beside the water taxi to San pedro or Belize city and there are a few nice restaurant near by. Jacuzzi on the roof top was great to have a drink and watch life going by.

I loved this place last time I visited and just had to come back! I was able to choose my room and stay in the same Cabana I last stayed in which was a real treat. All of the staff are knowledgeable and helpful in whatever way you might need. The location is the best being only steps away from the Caribbean Sea and near Front Street where all the restaurants and local happenings are.
If you want a nice clean room with AC that cools within minutes, a hotel with the only pool in Caye Caulker, a relaxing, tranquil atmosphere, then I would highly recommend Seaside Cabanas. Although I rarely stay at a hotel more than once, I can hardly wait to return for my 3rd visit!

Room tip: i loved Cabana #6. I would recommend this Cabana or any room facing the water.

This is a beautiful little hotel in an excellent location. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is wonderful.
It does not have a " fitness center" or a restaurant so reviewing those is silly. It does have a nice little Bar and a swimming pool. Don't worry there is ample food on the island and plenty of opportunity to exercise.
I would definitely come back.

Room tip: We stayed in room 11 on the second floor. It had nice views. Next time i would try to stay in one of the pool side cabanas.
