Joe Jo’s is for sure the best place on the island. Everything is taken care of for you because life is simple here. The snorkeling is fantastic and my kids loved the family atmosphere thanks to Dave and his grandkids. We are already planning a return trip.

This was my first trip to Tobacco Caye and it was as good as I'd imagined. A tiny island with not too many people. David and his family were excellent hosts and it was a pleasant surprise to have all that gear (kayaks, paddleboards etc.) to use in the water. Snorkelling was great from shore - including lots of rays and nice coral. The accommodation was simple, clean and peaceful. I was blown away by the cooking! I am a vegetarian and I haven't had better meals at the fanciest restaurants. I will be back! this is a must visit place.

My family and I ventured to Jo Jo’s at the end of March for a spring break adventure, little did we know the treat we were in for! Everything was as described on the website, the cute cabins were beyond satisfactory for our week long getaway; Louis, Dave and Carmen aptly responded to ALL our needs ensuring that every day was even better than the last. The kids roamed the island in comfort, enjoyed the use of the kayaks and paddle boards and snorkeled to their hearts content.
Each day we looked forward to Ms. Carmen’s delish fried jacks and sweet treats at the end of dinner.
Jo jo’s has captured a piece of all our hearts and we will definitely be back soon!!

Joe Jo's is a delightful place, warm and friendly, comfortable and peaceful. David (manager) made sure our every need was met, and his lovely daughters Marielle and Cynthia cooked delicious meals and made us feel like part of the family. Kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkel gear were always available at no extra cost. The reef is a few steps away, so we could pop in out of the water whenever we felt like. It was like having a slope-side condo, with Caribbean seas instead of snow! All in all, it could not be more perfect.

THis hotel is one of the most amazing places we have ever been to. This island is so tiny (you can swim or kayak around the whole island, walk from one end to the other in about 2 minutes...). The man who runs it and all of the staff are so great. They are friendly, kind and helpful. You walk out of your room and can immediately start snorkeling. They have glass bottom kayaks which are so fun, regular kayaks, snorkeling gear, paddle boards.... The food they make is so yummy! If you really want to get away from it all and go relax in a tropical paradise, this is the place to go!!
