We stayed here for one night on our way to a sailing trip, and for our purposes it was fine. We rented the penthouse as we wanted our family of four to be all able to stay in one room, and this was very spacious; one master bedroom and a second bedroom with bunk beds in addition to a kitchen, seating area, and patio. The views from the patio were magnificent, as you can see from the photo attached to this review, and the location on the main drag in Caye Caulker was good.
We did encounter some issues with this hotel. When we got there, the staff claimed to not be able to find our reservation; once presented with a voucher, they said they "didn't know what that was", though eventually this got sorted out. Nobody was available at check-out time and the instructions given were patchy, so we had to guess what to do with our keys. The decor in the rooms was dated and somewhat spartan given the room rate; even in Belize, $200-250/night should get some modern amenities and decoration.
Ultimately, it suited our purposes fine for one night, but I don't know that I would stay there longer than that next time. The regular rooms here might provide better value for money.
