My wife Joy and I stayed at Blue Dolphin (formerly Gaviota but under now run by a couple that we thought were great!) for 4 nights in mid-October, 2012. The owners are in the process of making improvements to the grounds, but nothing about the food needed improving! They fed us plenty of wonderful home-cooked Belizean meals and were very accomodating. The porch from our cabin had a beautiful view of the sunrise, and it was amazing sitting out after dark in the breeze, listening to the waves crash on the reef. The porch overhung a calm spot of water and we even caught some small fish from our porch and saw small barracuda and big sting rays cruising past.

Overall, our four days at Blue Dolphin were among the best of our lives, and we've both done a fair amount of travel! We can only hope to return!

Room tip: The cabins closest to the water have the best view, if available!

Stayed 3 nights and left early, reluctantly got a refund for the fourth night. BED BUGS!
Got eaten alive. They tried to say it was mosquito bites but obviously bed bugs. They gave a partial refund for the fourth night, deducted breakfast. Not sure what the reasoning was as we paid full price for the first night even though we arrived at 2pm and did not eat breakfast or lunch! They even deducted another $20 for who knows what, we were just glad to be able to leave. We have stayed at Tobacco Caye twice previously( at Tobacco Caye Lodge) and had a great time. No surprises about the accommodations but not impressed with the bed bugs.

Room tip: Try Lana's which is very clean and the food is the best on the island.

I cant understand some of the other reviews that this place is getting....we are fairly seasoned backpackers and found this place terrible.....and we've seen alot around the world. The toilets are filthy, the food is inedible and the mozzies are evil......and then there the staff - I don't know who gave the manager her job, but she is destroying te place.......Dont even consider staying there guys. Soured an alternatively good stay on this Caye.

Our time at this hostel was very enjoyable and relaxing. We recieved friendly service, help arranging outings and equipment, and good meals.
The hostel is under new management and was above our expectation considering the price. It was on par with other places that were twice as expensive.

When I tell people about my fantastic trip to Belize, I always start with our experience at the Tobacco Caye.

This is a very small rustic island with very friendly people and FANTASTIC diving and fishing.

The couple at Gaviota resort made us feel right at home the second we got off the boat.

If you really want to recharge your batteries, this is the place for you.

If you're the 5 star resort, all inclusive, Disney resort type traveler, this might not be the best option for you.
