“A Great Hotel to Stay in Caye Caulker”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

Rainbow Hotel is one of my favorite hotels to stay in Caye Caulker. The rooms are air conditioned, have wifi internet and are very clean.

If you are looking for a nice and inexpensive hotel to stay in Caye Caulker, then consider this hotel.

I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: The Deluxe Suite is a very nice room.

Ernesto, thank you for the wonderful stay in front of the sea :) the sea breeze, birds singing in the morning and your recommendations for the island made a great stay for us. I would def recommend the Rainbow to travellers to Caye Caulker, especially the top casita where we stayed.

We decided to hit Belize on short notice for the new year. Ernesto and crew were very friendly and hospitable... Great location. Other than not being able to bring the towels to the beach, we had an amazing time at the Rainbow Hotel

Spent one night at the Rainbow Hotel on Caye Caulker. Good value. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room tasteful and pleasant. Location on the main street with sea views excellant. Quite and comfortable beds. Only warm, not bot water, but that seems a characteristic of Belize. Caye Caulker is a relaxes, less American touristy place to stay... somewhat more natural than the more popular resort-styped cayes and places

Room Tip: Ask for second floor... views from the porch are better. NO FITNESS Center

Just got back from my first stay at Rainbow and I enjoyed the trip. The staff was friendly and the rooms were nice and clean. The location is great and for those that care about A/C, it was great. Only complaint I had about the room was the lack of drawer space.

Nice on the first glance, but so la la in the second. The women were not really friendly, the bath was not very clean. The water stood in the shower - due to a bad construction. You can't take the towels to the beach. However, the location is great and the free wifi has great bandwidth. Slightly too expensive.

I just got back from staying 2 nights at this hotel and it was the best 2 nights of sleep I had during my 8 day trip to the area. I agree with most of the other posters here in the fact that the hotel rooms are very nice and the service was fantastic, too. I do disagree with one of the earlier posts, however.

I found that the free wireless internet was best while sitting in one of the chairs outside in front of rooms 101 and 109. As long as I was sitting in a chair outside of these rooms I did not have any problems. The signal strength goes down considerably beyond that. I even got internet service while sitting in front of rooms 102 & 108, too.The bandwidth was much lower, though.

Regardless, it beats paying for an internet cafe every time you want to access the internet for something and you DO NOT have to sit in the front office to access the internet as an earlier poster said!

I stayed in room 107 on the second floor. The rooms are large and the beds are extremely comfortable, too. I enjoyed the quietness of the rooms and the refrigerator/microwave came in handy during my stay as well. The a/c worked very well and there were a lot of tv channels available for watching during my down time, too. I especially like the deadbolt lock on the door. The only drawback with that, though, is you have to lock the door with the key from the inside at night.

In the case of an emergency a person would have to unlock the door with the key to exit the room unless they were to kick out one of the front windows. I didn't have any complaints with the hotel service at all. The owner, Ernie, even took me to the airport at no charge on his golf cart when I had to fly home. I will definitely stay there again on my next visit and recommend it to others as well.
