“Ahhhhhh....”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

Just what we where looking for! Our first time on Caye Caulker and I am sure it will NOT be our last. Not only where the accomodations perfect, but so where the owners Linda and Colin. They made us feel like we where 'friends', and where always available for tips, questions beer deilvery etc... We had one of the beach front second floor above the office cabanas. We never needed anything that was not available either in the cabana or a 5 minute walk away.

The dock with the palapa and hammocks where paradise. At night we would put our I-pad speakers out and dance on the dock under the stars! In the morning we would wake to have Belizian coffee and watch the sunrise. 2 weeks seemed to fly by.

Room Tip: If there is no breeze, bug spray is a good idea.

We stayed at Colinda's for a week in January 2012, had a great time in Caye Caulker.
The cabanas are very well kept, unlike most other on the island, and there's a real effort from the owners of the place to keep them clean and in great shape. Plus the owners are very friendly and helpful. The only (very small) negative was the low pressure in the shower...
Altogether, we wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else on the island.

Colindas was the perfect choice for us, not only are their beach front cabanas new, they are well built and beautiful! We stayed on the top floor above the office. Not sure where to start, not only were Colin and Linda great owners, they were so very helpful! From stocking my beer, to great advice of places to eat, to just neat people to chat with.

The cabana was well laid out, with AC in the bedroom and a flat screen with direct TV, full kitchen and very comfortable furniture. We had all the creature comforts. The best part of the room was the great deck! With a stunning view of the ocean, we rarely moved. The area that Colindas is located is a short walk to the main road in Caye Caulker, and very quiet. I loved riding my bike all over the island, the people were all great and I never felt uncomfortable.

Colindas dock and palapa is another highlite as well, the hammocks were heaven! I just cannot say enough about how pleased we were with everything about the resort, bravo Colin and Linda!!

Room Tip: They have 3 beach front cabanas that is what we stayed in, they are great! I heard from other guests...

We loved Colinda’s.

For a great price we had a great Cabana (large bedroom + TV, kitchen, bathroom +unlimited purified water) that was overlooking the beach. The owners were friendly and gave great advice for people to find (i.e. Juni’s Snorkeling) on the island. They’re location was a five minute walk up the beach which was just far enough away to escape the “tourist center” feel that we found at the center of the island.

I highly recommend this place if you're staying at Caye Caulker for a few days or more...

We stayed in Colinda Cabanas for 2 weeks over Christmas and new years and our good experience of Caye Caulker wouldn't be the same with out colinda cabanas!
Within a couple of steps you are on the ocean and with a newly renovated dock, sun chairs, hammocks and a lovely palapa you have everything you could wish for!
The hosts are truly lovely and very helpful with whatever questions you have on your mind.
Its very quite area during the night but within 5 minutes of walk you are among all the restaurants and bars (its a small island!).
The cabins are very clean, hot water, hammocks included and 2 big fans. In ours there was no a-c but since there always seems to be a little bit of a breeze that was no problem at all!
i highly recommend this place to everyone whos looking for a lovely place to stay along with the best price on the island!

We just recently spent 3 nights at Colinda Cabanas and were very pleased with not only our accommodations but with our friendly, warm and generous hosts, Colin and Linda. It was their first Christmas away from family and friends so they invited all of their guests to share in a complete turkey dinner that they had prepared. The recently renovated cabanas were quaint and charming and clean. A great place to stay!

I stayed at Colinda's for four nights, and felt it was the perfect home base for my stay on Caye Caulker. Colin and Linda are exceptional hosts, willing to help out with anything you can think of. Our room (the budget bungalow) was not the plushest, but for twenty something dollars a night who cares? The only time I spent in the room was to sleep anyways, as the rest of the time I was drinking beer and snorkeling the beautiful waters. The dock is awesome, a great place to relax in the hammocks at the end of the day. I am sure you can find nicer accommodations, but if you are looking for a great price and your own room where you can lock your things (not a hostel dorm), this is the place for you.
