“I'm not laid back, but was here!”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

It takes a pretty magical place to calm me down, as vacations are usually planned with non-stop activities. Not here. I found myself looking forward to spending time on the porch or under one of the beach thatch covers, hypnotized by the sea view, breeze, and the great beach at Exotic Caye. Having light conversations with caretakers, Ben and Maitlund, became the highlight of my day. There were plenty of activities, but none were more enjoyable than the relaxation. It's old, but the staff made it one of the most enjoyable places we have ever stayed. The restaurant was very good, wireless internet and tv worked well, and it is easy to get into town. Our group of travelers is already planning a return trip.

When you open your apt. door and step off your private porch you are on the beach, which is much nicer here than in town. It's about a 10-15 minute walk into San Pedro. The apts have a full kitchen and small sitting area and you get wifi and great U.S. tv. The apts are very basic and old but clean and the whole place has a laid back old time charm to it. The staff is great and give very personal service. The pool is a small plunge pool and as elsewhere on Ambergris you can't swim off the beach because of the sea grass. There is a good restaurant on the premises and there's a well stocked supermarket nearby.

If for no other reason, staying here will afford you the opportunity to meet Paul and Kelly, perhaps two of the friendliest hotel managers I've ever encountered.

Although the rooms are old, they are well appointed for your comfort. I was told that a re-construction is coming soon, and that will be great.

The location on the island is very nice, as it is within walking distance of much of what you'll want to do.

On the property, they had a bar and a restaurant, both of which were fun and comfortable, and the food was pretty good.

Additionally, Exotic Caye has a great beach location, and you'll enjoy sunrise here as much as anywhere.

We spent a week at this resort. The service was incredible. They are within 15min walking distance from down town San Pedro by road or beach and even closer if you have a golf cart or bike (the main form of transportation). They're stretch of beach is far nicer than those closer to down town- they don't have a boardwalk and the sand actually piles up here while it is washed away from other resort fronts. There is a small plunge pool and daily yoga as well as a cafe, a grill and a bar on site. There is also a gym and large outdoor pool you can use for free 1 block away. The rooms come with a kitchenette and there is a small grocery across the street. The rooms are simple but clean. These 30 year old thatch roofed buildings have a real charm and are a welcome break from many of the other pretentious establishments.

Room Tip: Stay away from building 6 which is across the street from a bar with karaoke on Wed nights- everywhe...

This was a great place to stay- very roomy and spacious. Decor could have used some upgrading but you don't spend much time inside anyways. The view is great, and the food at the Blue Iguana was AMAZING!!! You will want a golf cart to get around town, but you can walk as well if you don't. The owners were very nice and their cat Jane would come and hangout with us- real sweetheart.

San Pedro is the largest town on Ambegris Caye so it's a bit hard to figure out which hotel is going to be great for you. Exotic Caye, when you enter the property you are simply amazed that they scored the best beach in this part of town!

Kelly and Paul, the general managers, are so fun to be around and I would say they will make the experience of staying here that much better!

We also ate at the yummy Blue Iguana Grille - my husband is still talking about the best meal he had during our 2 weeks of travel! So that says a lot. Plus, we travel with 2 kids, one is super super picky eater, and they managed to make him exactly what he wanted (not from the menu) and appease both of my kids, which to me is a deal breaker in itself.

excellent value for money, great room with a magnificent view, reasonable walking distance from downtown San Pedro, Pity the blue iguana restaurant was closed for the low season

Good news, this was the low season and there were few people, no noise, best room.
bad news, this was the low season and there was no swinging atmosphere!

The sports club pool was great, made up for the small size of the pool at the resort.
