I was very pleased with my stay at Exotic Caye.

Upon arrival, staff helped us carry our luggage to our room. They gave us a tour of the resort, complete with Crazy Canuck's Bar and a nice pool with a seaside view.

The room was very clean and felt just like home! Our room was less than $50 per night, and included a small living area, dining table, and a kitchen with a stove and fridge. Great for long stays when you don't want to eat out every night! I would recommend going to the local grocery store rather than the one down the street, it is much cheaper!!

The location of the resort was on one of the prettiest parts of the beach. Clean with swaying palm trees and calm waters! Very peaceful, and we even had a great view of the beach from our room.

The staff was very friendly and assisted us with all questions. They offer bike rentals, golf cart rentals, and they will also set up a variety of activities for you at an affordable price.

I would definitely stay here again! What an amazing place :)

Staff is terriffic. The beach bar is a great place to hang.

but the rooms???....3 steps below the cheapest Knights inn. They were clean, but even close to what you would expect for the money.

The hotel is supposedly going to be torn down and replaced with a new building. it can't come fast enough for me.

San Pedro is a poor town. The restaurants were pretty good. But trying to find some groceries to stock your room with snacks, etc was a challenge, because it looked like everything on the shelves (and there wasn't much) was 3 years old.

Go to a different resort. There are some nicer ones on the island. You'll be disappointed in this one, I guarantee it.

Room Tip: Use a different resort

I will echo "bparker8710" to express our satisfaction with this resort. I would recomend renting a golf cart to travel around the island. We got one from "Ultimate" and it worked great. We booked with a "Groupon" and the deal included breakfast all week and an amazing snorkel trip. If you go to this resort be sure to check out the "Fittness Center" over by the air strip. Beautiful freshwater pool, and you can watch the planes come & go. We will be back...

Room Tip: Go for the upper deck rooms. Better ocean view & includes a loft.

This was me and my wife's first trip to Ambergris Caye- We went on the trip with an open mind, not really sure what to expect, other than the beach, the ocean and the sun! When we first arrived, we were very pleased to see how close we were to the water, just steps from our unit. Just to let everyone know- there is no swimming right off the beach. However, all docks are open to the public and they are great to swim/snorkel around. There are also a few spots within walking distance that have a beach you can walk into the water. The staff of Exotic Caye was overly helpful and friendly, and made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Our room had a perfect view- there are about 5-6 thatched 2 story "houses", each with 2 units on top, 2 on bottom- they all seemed to be angled perfectly, maximizing privacy and optimal view. Because of the way it's set up, its easy to meet other guests at the resort and make friends. The rooms themselves have just about everything you need- living space, kitchen, air conditioned bed room, bath, and deck. Ours even had a loft! Just know that things are very basic, sometimes out dated, but, taking into account that nothing on the island is "fancy", you get used to it quick. Honestly, you just need a little sense of adventure! For us, within 12 hrs we were in love with this place, and irrationally talking about moving to this simple paradise. Another thing that makes Exotic Caye so special is that everything you need is within walking distance- a fruit stand and a grocery store right out back, MELT, an amazing restaurant featuring breakfast and lunch located steps from our room, Crazy Canucks, a great bar featuring live music right on site, and a multitude of different restaurants and bars up and down the beach to explore! The resort is very professionally run and the staff are great. They were very helpful in planning various activities around the island and very accommodating to our every need. The housekeepers did an amazing job at keeping our room clean and homey and were always smiling! The groundskeepers did an awesome job at making the resort look great, along with sharing some enlightening conversations and laughs. Locals on the island are genuinely friendly and helpful- they seem to really want you to enjoy their island as much as they do! My wife and I had an amazing time at Exotic Caye! We would highly recommend it and look forward to our return!

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor- the thatched roofs really make your experience that much more unique!

Exotic Caye is not the fanciest place on Ambergris Caye but has a terrific location and outstanding staff. The new restaurant is also a winner. The staff does a great job of arranging for local trips and attractions. The activities at Crazy Canucks bar allow for opportunities to make new friends. The on-site yoga studio was a treat as well.

Cannot emphasize enough the graciousness and helpfulness of the staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where the bedroom does not overlook the street.
