We first got to Caye Caulker and Frederick came to pick us up from the boat taxi. He said he was with the real Macaw so we figured it was cool. He walked us to the hotel and when we came to give him a tip, he actually asked for money. We gave it to him. That was my ONLY negative comment on this hotel (and it has nothing to do with the hotel!!)
This place was awesome. He stayed in the room facing the street and the vendors. We made friends with Jam and Delicious, and New York the dog, and Corn and everyone else (we miss them!!)
The location was perfect. We sat in our hammock and watched people go by. There was a bit of noise, so if you dont like that, bring ear plugs, but stay here!!! you won't regret it.
The AC worked perfectly and the showers had super wicked water pressure. Rob was super helpful. He's such a laid back guy and was there anytime we needed anything. He is full of information about the island.
The beds were good, the cleaning lady, Latecia, what a sweetheart! She was there everyday. There's a super cool community area within the hotel gates where you can hang and sunbathe.
This hotel was so amazing, that after we left it to tour the rest of Belize, we decided to go back to Caye Caulker and back to the real macaw for a couple more nights!
Rob was super accomodating and hooked us up with a back room, just as good as the front one. With a queen bed and a single bed and the great water pressure!
I highly recommend you stay here if you wanna meet cool people and hang out. It is definetly a busier part of the island, but thats what makes it so cool!!
AND this place has free wi-fi, if thats something you're looking for
Miss it already!!!!
