We never actually stayed here.This review is soley based on the experience with an angry man that works here.
So, we went to Belize for 12 days and stayed the first four nights at a different hotel in Caye Caulker. We really liked Caye Caulker and had left the last four nights of our trip without a reservation anywhere. We were heading to San Pedro for four nights and at the time decided we wanted to come back to Caye Caulker. This place had a room available, so we booked it for the last days of our trip. When we got to San Pedro, we got talking to some locals and said San Ignacio was worth checking out, so we needed to cancel our reservation at Barefoot. We understood there might be some penalty for cancelling and had no problem paying it.
My buddy called the place to cancel two days before our reservation and talked to a very rude man. He became very hostile on the phone and started calling my buddy 'a very bad man'. He claimed he was turning people away for our room. He hung up on my buddy and never did tell us what the penalty was for cancelling. Like I said we were prepared to pay a penalty for cancelling,but he left us in the dark not knowing what he might charge us. The next day someone else called and spoke to my buddy and said we would be charged one night stay for cancelling. Fine. Why couldn't the man have told this in a calm manner and not leave us unsure of what was going on?
I don't like writing bad reviews, but I felt this guy deserves a bad review for being a jerk. It could be a nice place to stay, but hopefully he treats you better than he did us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our rooms have a minimalist Caribbean decor and we pride ourselves on having comfortable beds - very quiet at night. From your private balcony, you will have a view of the Caribbean Sea & the barrier reef which is only 1.25 miles away. The world-famous Split is a 5-minute walk up the beach, Raggamuffin Tours are just across on the beach, and the Caye Caulker Craft Market is literally next to us. We have an amazing private dock over azure waters, giving you plenty of space to swim & relax. ... more less
