We travelled as part of an Intrepid tour and raised concerns with our tour guide after we read the other reviews. If Intrepid acted on this, then well done them - if not then even better as there was no cause for concern
We found the rooms clean, tidy, comfortable - we felt safe throughout our stay even after reading some reviews that said they would feel safer staying on the beach? Yes we did have someone chatting outside our room on the last of the 3 nights - but this was a communal area. I asked the lad to move on to which he politely done. Again on the last day there was rubbish left in the corridors - but guess what, the cleaners were cleaning the area and were centralising this before taking it out. The rubbish must have been there for no more than 10 minutes - again nothing to complain about.
We stayed in room 404 and while this is near the top of the hotel and away from the pool area (which is there regardless of reviews that say it is not) and the budget rooms I still think the hotel staff performed well and the hotel was a pleasant place to stay.
We were not looking for 5* accommodation, but equally we did not want a hostel - we were pleasantly surprised with this hotel after the reviews and would stay here again.
A supermarket is next door, they serve food and it is not that far a walk to the main area in Caye Caulker.
The only thing negative to say, and I say it tongue in cheek - we were given a remote control for the wrong TV type. We took it back to reception and they changed it for the correct one. If this is all we have to complain about then we are doing well.
