Hotel: Nicest Hotel on Caulker. Is being tiled everywhere...it is going to be even more beutiful when it is finished. We saw progress on the pool...but likely not the reason you would visit Caulker anyway.
AC worked great. Honor bar in room with water, pop, and beer...fairly reasonable prices.
Continental breakfast was good with fresh baked goods and fruit along with jams and juices...and coffee.
It is on other side of Island from most hotels, but that is a good thing...can watch sunsets right from the back beach (more like a sand deck)...but you can walk to main strip in 3 min.
Hotel is gated and for guests only...which is great for safety, but I felt very safe most places on the island.
Staff seemed OK, bartender is great. Owner Jim seems to lurk around the place a little more than I was comfortable with, but was nice when we engaged him.
We used the scuba shop next door and they were good...no problems. If you are birdwatchers...make sure you get to the other side of the split and walk down the path. We found out too late but that is where most of the birds are.
Renting a golf cart for the day so you can explore the whole island...there is a lot to see outside the strip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Iguana Reef Inn is located on the water's edge, in a secluded location in the heart of a charming village. The Inn offers decidedly upscale accommodations and the enchantment of the "Old Caribbean" island lifestyle. Relax on the verandah of one of the Inn's richly textured rooms or poolside and settle into the unhurried pace of the island. The Inn's ideal location is just minutes away from the restaurants and night spots on Caye Caulker. ... more less
