“If you are travelling to Belize this hotel is the only place to stay!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2010

Seaside Cabanas was highly recommended to us by our best friends who have visited most islands off of the Belize mainland and this hotel far exceeded our expectations.

Situated on the stunning island of Caye Caulker it has a prime beach front position with easy access to the islands only water taxi point allowing a direct route for the many excursions available which can all be arranged by the hotels welcoming staff.

Seaside Cabanas offers everything you could want for a family holiday including a sparkling swimming pool with ample sun beds and a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are spacious, very clean, air conditioned and even include a TV and DVD player (DVD's were available from reception). The staff were exceptionally friendly and even the gardeners took the time to say good morning every day.

We stayed for two weeks and Caye Caulker offers more to do than we could include in our fourteen days... we will certainly be returning very soon and will definitely be staying at Seaside Cabanas!

Absolutely fantastic holiday..!!
Caribbean feel to the hotel, plenty of lovely cocktails, lovely friendly heplful staff, a great bunch of holiday makers came and went throughout our stay, island hopers, book readers, fun lovers, a great mix with quiet times, everyone wished they had booked for longer at Seaside Cabanas!! Many people stay here on route to & from San Pedro, we didnt go there, but everyone that did.. Said "Wish we had booke our whole stay here"..

Beautiful location on the seafront, next to the water taxi pier, where you can take an inexpensive 40min super fast water taxi into Belize!! A must do experience!
Zip lining in the Rainforest, and Cave Tubing!! (which the hotel staff will happily organise for you)

We were lucky to be in Caye Caulker for the "Lobster Fest", it was a real caribbean celebration :-))

The hotel is a short walk from "The Split", which is the "Must Go, Chill Out" place on the Island, gorgeous warm sea, with "Lizard Juice buy 3 get one free!" ...

Raggamuffin Tours do the BEST Full Day Snorkel :-)
The absolute best (to die for) Food is in the restaurant situated directly behind the Hotel, and SANDBOX is a great relaxed daytime eating place..

Only one night club on the Island means a real mix of people, but great music and a fun place to have a Boogie :-))

Everything you could need or want is right next to you at the Seaside Cabanas!! ;-))
I would love to go back again to do the diving :-)

We stayed for 3 nights in July. Took the water taxi from San Pedro, and the hotel is located just steps away from the water taxi. We stayed in cabana 3 right by the pool. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. They booked our snorkeling tour for a great price. I appreciate the welcome binder in the rooms. AC worked wonderful in the rooms, it was very hot and humid in Belize while we were there. Although there were always lots of people laying out by the pool, it was always so quiet and relaxing as everyone is just reading and sunbathing. I loved our rooftop deck with loungers and hammack! It provided even more private relaxation. Spent everyday on the deck tanning. The only noise we had heard was at the bar during the world cup games, but it was ok because we were watching in our room and cheering as well. This was the best hotel we stayed at during our stay in Belize.

We booked here for our honeymoon and had to leave to find another place to stay after a few nights. The tiny concrete compound means you can hear pretty much everything that happens by the pool, a few steps outside your door. Sound carried well from the bar as well. I had to go ask them to close a door as the bar stayed open late. Sadly, we had to keep our windows closed and the fan going to try to block out exterior sound. Eventually decided to just find somewhere else. I did have the best massage of my life here though!

Hello,
I see your stay was over a year ago. We have tightened our noise policy considerably since that time.
Sorry to hear you may have been disturbed during your stay, and we do try to ensure other guests do respect others peace and quiet, but there is the exception on a rare occassion. We strongly encourage anybody who has any problem be it noise or otherwise to notify us immediately and we will swiftly rectify this. Our bar does close by 10pm and guests are asked not to sit around the pool after this time. Generally it is a very quiet area of the island as the more lively bars are a short walk up the beach.
Warm regards
Simon

We stayed 5 nights in the family suite upstairs above the front office. A little concerned about being near the bar, but we couldn't hear anything with our door closed so no bothers.

Beach chairs were provided for each upstairs room, so we grabbed a few in the mornings to sip coffee from the balcony before heading downstairs for the free continental breakfast - super strong coffee and sweet rolls.

Office staff arranged all excursions and offered suggestions for restaurants. Very nice experience and would definitely stay here again.

This was a great find right on the water's edge. Beautiful setting with ocean views from the room, and a great pool with comfy lounge chairs and palm trees. Rooms were nicely decorated with comfortable beds and air conditioning.

Seaside Cabanas is a very cute, kind of Mexican looking small hotel. The pool is small and can get crowded if there are more than three people in it. We weren't told that there was a free, small continental breakfast until the third day of our stay and we discovered this by accident.

We had booked for the week, but we left after four nights because the mattress, which was located on a concrete platform, was so hard that my entire body was in pain. Although the manager agreed to switch us to a pillow top type mattress, I already had my mind made up to leave. I just couldn't bear the thought of another sleepless night. So they charged us an extra night penalty fee for leaving early (didn't we read our contract?) and we moved to a much better hotel on the island that I wish we had booked from the beginning, the Iguana Reef Inn. It was about 30% more expensive but about 100% better all the way around.
