It's in the residential area, so we weren't surprised. Anyone that pays the small charge but complains about not being right on the beach needs a reality check. The room (we had #1, upstairs) was very clean, Raul, his family and the woman that cleaned the room were very nice. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching life on the island go by, and by that I mean the residents. Had an issue with sulphur smelling water but Raul immediately corrected it. We enjoyed being away from the beach.

We have been staying in hostels travelling through Mexico and Belize so it was nice to have a private ensuite room for a few nights. It's not particularly glam but it's clean, in a good location and the room is cleaned daily, including fresh bed sheets. There's wifi too and it's cheap. Raul was friendly but don't take his restaurant suggestions unless you want food poisoning!


Raul is a charming man, always ready to help or just have a chat. There are only two rooms, on top of each other: Good size, huge fridge, TV, nice balcony for a sundowner and watching the locals go by. Located in a quiet street, a short walk away from Caye Caulker's main drag with all its shops, restaurants and tour operators. Excellent value for money.


Lovely family-run business where we feel like living with the locals. Room was cleaned everyday very well, had a fridge and cable tv and wifi. Great find as it was very busy the time we were there. Would definitely stay here again.


Well we made a mistake & got no sympathy. We are travelling with a 13m old baby so always book aircon rooms. For some reason we didn't see this one had no air con & didn't check the room before we handed over our money. BIG MISTAKE!! After looking at the room we went straight back to the owner to say we can't stay without air-con, our baby won't sleep! She said we should have checked the cancellation policy & she will charge us 50% if we cancel any nights! So we had 3 miserable hot nights here!

the chair's on the upstairs porch looked dirty; with a little effort you could make the porcha very nice hangout place :) i would recommend maybe buying new the blankets in the room, they looked quite old. otherwise i enjoyed my stay and would recommend this place for anyone looking for a private room in this budget range.


The room was good, could do with new flooring, the sand fles were really bad
