PAUSE Hostel
Reviewed 8 August 2010

My wife and I stayed here for 9 nights in march. It was supposed to be 7 nights but we found it too difficult to leave.

It is important to note this isn't a hotel. They are rental suites in an animal sanctuary. http://www.pawanimalsanctuarybelize.com/
If you love animals, like to be off the beaten path while saving money and getting to know the locals, don't miss this one.

We got a golf cart taxi from the water taxi terminal, the sanctuary is at the back of the island, right on the shore with its own dock and a little beach complete with coconut palms.

Upon arriving, we met Madi, the owner/caretaker of the place, and I have to say what an incredible person she is. Madi devotes all her time, money and energy looking after this place and all the animals she has rescued. It felt great to be helping her the cause by choosing this place over some investor's cash cow villa.

The suite we took is the smaller one in the lower part of the house. A clean, tiled floor, simple bed, bathroom and counter was ours for $80 per night. There was an air conditioner there but we didn't need it as the ceiling fan kept us cool. The other suite available in the house has a full kitchen. There are several good restaurants and bars close by; our favorite was the Barrier Reef Sports Grill.

Caye Caulker is great. It's relatively unspoiled. No TGIF or Starbucks here - so the prices are very good. There are lots of activities to choose but the snorkeling was indescribable. Go snorkeling early in your stay because you'll want to go again.

All in all, staying at PAWs for Peace at P.A.W. animal sanctuary was the best part of our amazing Belize vacation. We are planning a return within a year and I'll post an update.
