Best place on Caye Caulker to stay hands down- been going for 14 years and stayed everywhere... this is the only place I will stay while visiting my father - great showers, AC, pool, hot tub on roof, close to everything and full kitchen. Staff is great and everyone is so laid back!

We stayed in room 4 for 9 nights, and had an amazing experience. Bobby is awesome! She arranged for a golf cart ride from the water taxi upon our arrival, and was always available to help. Not that it was important to us, but if you just can't get away from the world the internet on the property was very reliable. (Our daughter provided this feedback).

Thank you 'Jay B' for taking the time to give us such wonderful feedback. I hope we can welcome you back again soon. I'm pleased your daughter was happy with the internet; despite us paying for the best available internet on the caye, it can occasionally fail.

We absolutely loved our stay at Caye Reef. My husband and I were recently taking our honeymoon, and there was no other choice than Caye Reef at Caye Caulker.

I had stayed previously in 2011 at the same apartments, and since my mother and I had such a lovely time, I knew it would be perfect for our upcoming trip.

The apartments are delightful. Absolutely clean, comfortable, modest, relaxed. The apartments are closer to the split on the island, which clears out once the sun goes down. We found it to be a bit more quiet, peaceful and relaxing on that side of the island. Air conditioning worked wonderfully.
Every night we would enjoy our view from the balcony with a Belikin beer. Plenty of towels, beach towels available. They also provide tupperware (where we stored our cut fruits), spices, coffee maker (and some coffee/sugar), filet knives, blender, microwave.

We used the pool out front to cool off, sometimes relax and read on their beach chairs.
It was nice to have that private pool option.

Best restaurants close by : Maggie's Sunset Grill (their lobster was perfection), Kareem's Grill (only open during the day, but their jerk chicken is amazing), Wish Willy (their side of vegetables inspired me to come home and cook the same style dish, but definitely not as good as theirs.)

There's a convenience store practically below the apartment that sells snacks, beers, sodas, toiletries.
We used the bikes in the morning to get breads from the bakery and fruits from the fruit stand near Errolyn's Fry Jacks.

We were happy to have our apartment serviced during our stay, which was a nice touch as we were staying 7 nights.

We had great shower pressure, an absolute must when rinsing off after morning dips in the Split. Beds were super comfortable and ceiling fans helped cool things off too.

Mornings were always nice and quiet, try to get up for sunrise and go to the balcony. Totally worth it.

We can't wait to go back to Caye Reef!

Room tip: Quiet, relaxing, clean

I stayed a full week at Caye Reef, and I only wish I could have stayed longer. The condo was spotless, but it was the attention to detail that made the place special. At the top of the list is the fact that Bobbi, the property manager, provided detailed communications in advance, completely taking the stress out of the trip. She had a taxi waiting for us to deliver us to our door, provided information about the best tour experiences (snorkeling and Stand Up Paddleboarding for us), and provided full bubblers of water in the condo so that we did not have to worry about Montezuma's revenge. She even provides a cell phone in the condo so that you can reach her or make local calls without the hassle of country-codes to call from your own phone.
The pool is super clean, and I liked the fact that it's in shade late in the day, so that after a hot day of excursions, you can end the afternoon with a cool dip and a poolside beverage right from your own condo. The location, by the way, is the best on the island. It's a stone's throw from the Split, with the best sunsets and a very nice vibe at the Lazy Lizard. You can find less expensive lodging in Caye Caulker. But you can't find better lodging, and that's that.

Room tip: There are six condos, and they are all alike, managed by the same company, so you need not worry about which unit you are in.

I've stayed a few different places on Caye Caulker and Caye Reef was by far the best! Bobbi was awesome in helping us book EVERYTHING including transportation from the airport to the water taxi, and from the water taxi to the hotel. We were there during the "slow season," but the service (cleaning/maid, etc.) was still fantastic. Caye Reef is a beautiful location close to everything. We had 2 couples staying in the unit and it was the perfect size (2 BR/2 BA). The pool and hot tub are perfect. The location is perfect. Best spot on the island!

Room tip: All are great!
