Reviewed 23 April 2014

This was a great place for our family to stay. It was clean, had hot water in the bathrooms and was right across from a small beach which was great for kids. We stayed in the two bedroom appt on the ground floor. There was no view, but the location was great. we were easy walking distance to the ferry and everything else on the island. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. They were very good at responding quickly to our emails. There was a small kitchen which was helpful for feeding the kids, but we mostly ate out. While the hotel is across the road from the beach, this is really not much of a road, and you can rent hammocks for $5 a day in the area on the beach across the street. The hotel does have Adirondack chairs at the beach.

Room Tip: get the upstairs rooms for a better view.

On a whim we decided to stay here after a few days on the island and wanted to stay another night. The room was great! Recently renovated with very nice finishings. Staff was very friendly. The room was very quiet with the door shut. The next time we visit we will book here for our entire stay. Very pleased!

Overall we found it great value.

Newly renovated rooms to a high standard.

Location is excellent, it's basically right over the street from the beach. Short walk to the Split and ferry ports.

Shared balcony with sea views.

Friendly staff.

Additionally, the Rainbow Restaurant over the road (sand) belonging to the hotel serves tasty food and overlooks the sea.

Centrally located across from beach and good rainbow restaurant. True it's noisy but pretty much all the central locations in caye caulker are because the islands so small unless you're north of 'the split.'

Rainbow Hotel itself is fine - clean, great to have AC in the bedrooms, kitchen quite sufficient and staff helpful, but it's next to a dog rescue and between the beach noise and the soccer fields. Even with earplugs, it was a real bummer.

Room Tip: We stayed in the upstairs apartment but not much view of the ocean cause of the trees.

Located on island's main road, lots of traffic, mostly pedestrian, but particularly noisy in early mornings with trucks collecting garbage and servicing nearby restaurants. Beach on other side of road was neither clean nor private; lots of pedestrian traffic and dog traffic (feces). Beach also had seaweed raked into piles left to rot and was rather smelly.

Rooms comfortable and clean but don't look under bed. No ocean view from rooms because of privacy wall built in front of hotel and also across second level balconies. Website photos accurate for interior, but exterior photos are from other locations in village not affiliated with hotel. Restaurant across street not part of hotel but belongs to related family - nice location but caters to cruise ship tours and busy = slow service.

Island offers many hotels for similar cost which are equally as good or better and can offer more attractive beaches and quieter locations. I will return to Caye Caulker again but definitely won't stay at this hotel.

A clean, comfortable, small hotel on Caye Caulker, a short walk from the ferry dock. Good location on Front Street across from the Rainbow Grill. Kitchenette in our room had a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, which was nice. Solid air-conditioning and decent internet. Bed a little soft but we still slept well. There isn't really a good beach on the island - The Split is not very appealing - so you should book a snorkeling or scuba tour to take full advantage. Service was fine but minimal (front desk not staffed 24/7, manager didn't offer a lot of advice, etc.). Nothing luxurious or fancy but a decent choice on Caye Caulker for a decent price.
