Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 July 2013

This place was good for the price we paid - clean rooms with coffee and tea facilities plus a nice swimming pool overlooking a beach. They also have a bar but didnt use it so cant say more. Staff quite friendly.

Stayed: April 2013, travelled as a couple

Simply have to say that Brittany and all of the staff was amazing to work with. We had initially rented a home on the south side of the island only to be eaten alive by mosquitos...so we went hunting another place to stay after the first night there...It happened to be Lobster Fest so there was no options for that next night however..The staff at Island Magic helped us arrange to be moved the next morning and held us a room along with all of our luggage while we were out on a snorkeling trip. Our oldest son happened to also get very sick ( probably due to the first house we stayed at) and the staff was amazing letting him stay at the resort and got our room cleaned very quickly for him. I am so grateful to this great group of very caring people! We are planning a return trip to Caye Caulker and plan to stay again...
The rooms are very clean and well stocked for a family to be able cook so saving money on eating out is an option. Best of all they make it feel like home and family!
I can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: The penthouse would be amazing with great views!

Our first visit to Island Magic was 2 years ago on our honeymoon. We loved the pool and rooms so we came back on our latest trip. Right off the bat we had a problem with our ocean-side room, but the owner graciously gave us a free upgrade for our 3 night stay. Since our last visit, they have renovated the bar and added a deck above the bar. They serve appetizers and drinks but we did not order anything so cannot comment. The pool is very nice and there are plenty chairs there and on their beach. Lastly, the private pier has a few chairs as well as a set of stairs to get in the water.

Overall this is a great hotel with a kind owner and friendly staff. We will continue to come back!

We loved out room at IM but you are definitely paying American prices for the rooms and at the bar. And there were lots of families staying at the resort and they were very loud at the pool very early in the morning ( starting at 6AM!!). There was also a miscommunication between our tour company and the hotel so we weren't picked up in Belize City for our tour. It was very unnerving! And the hotel manager booked us on the wrong tour, charged us for the wrong tour, gave us the wrong water taxi tickets and came in our room when I was in the shower. She was very helpful and nice but too many things went wrong! The hotel itself was very nice and had a great location on the quieter edge of town where the locals live. I would try another hotel next time though.

I have just returned from 6 weeks in Belize . We started off in Caye Caulker and for the first couple of nights stayed at a small hotel near the water taxi jetty .
This hotel was ok but had no beach to speak of & no pool or anywhere to sit outside . It cost us$140 per night .
We looked round the island for a better hotel and after viewing several , we decided on The Island Magic resort . This hotel was actually cheaper than the small place we had been staying in and was much much better . The main difference was the pool and the facilities which were great . We liked it that much that after our travels through Belize north & south we stayed here 5 weeks later for our last week . in Belize .
If I ever return to Caye Caulker this is the place for me .

I first met the Saldivars when they were first preparing to open Island Magic. I told them I brought many groups to the island on a regular basis but especially in the summer months and always looking for someone willing to work with groups. It is not an easy task at best and what a joy it is to find someone willing to work with you. They and their staff have been super to our groups unlike some of the other hotels I have dealt with in the 20+years I have been going to the island and taking groups. The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and besides. when is the last time you saw crown molding even in the U.S. hotels let alone in Belize. Some of the people that say it is "OK" s need to return and this take off your glasses and take a good look around. I can always get someone if I need them, either Alina or one of the staff if it is afterhours because I know things don't always happen at opportune times. IF YOU HAVEN'T TRIED ISLAND MAGIC RESORT HOTEL, YOU ARE MISSING A TREAT.
Blessings,
Elizabeth H.

Stayed for a couple of nights. Caye Caulker is a laid back place, pretty basic and a little dishevelled but has a little charm of its own. You wont find luxury or 5 stars here so be prepared for something more basic. Island magic itself was OK, nothing fancy, reasonable pool which provided a welcome cool down on hot days and a nice bar facing out onto the water. Staff were quite helpful and the hotel is in a good location. I wouldn't rush back but overall enjoyed my brief trip to CC and Island Magic

Room Tip: Ask for one with outdoor hammock balcony facing the sea.
