I stayed at Mara's Place for 5 days in late february and it was great! The rooms are very basic, but totally clean. There were three of us and we shared 2 double beds, and had more then enough floor space to spread out our packs. The rooms come with a table, chair, and tv, as well as one night stand. The bathroom is basic, but gets the job done. Decent water pressure in the shower (but not great). Mara herself was great! Very hospitable. She locked our travel documents in her safe in the main house (no safe in the rooms). There is an outdoor communal kitchen in the back also. The thing I loved the most about Mara's were the hammocks! Each room had hammock on the porch, and across the street there is a private dock, with 3 hammocks in the shade and a few chairs in the sun. I spent a fair amount of hours napping in those hammocks, let me tell you! Mara's is the last housing option on the main street in Caye Caulker, closest to the beach and the Lazy Lizard. The bar closes early and we were never disturbed by any noise. The rooms have 2 locks on the front door, we felt very safe. She also has wifi.
Only con from my POV: thin, springy matresses.
For the price and location, Mara's was a great choice for our backpacking travel time in Caye Caulker.
