“Probably the most comfortable place to stay on Caye Caulker”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Though we didn't see the other accommodation options on Caye Caulker, we can say that for the money, the accommodation at Seaside Cabanas was perfectly comfortable, very clean, good a/c, solid furniture, had a fridge and plenty of space for the 2 of us. It had nice grounds and good pool. It was 2 steps away from the Water Taxi which made it even more convenient making it possible to roll out of bed and go to the Water Taxi departure in just a couple of minutes! The staff was helpful and mostly didn't bother you at all throughout the time we were there. There are bike rentals and the office will book just about any tour (though we had booked our own). The only con is the lack of a restaurant. Food options on the island are mediocre at best and after a day of diving or snorkeling we would have liked to just go back to the hotel and eat close by. The breakfast was pretty skimpy too - unless you're a very very light eater - and it very much depends on what the "bartender" is up to making that morning.... Overall though we enjoyed staying there and recommend it over the others.

Located a conch throw from the water taxi dock this hotel's location offers both aesthetic appeal and convenience. A little tropical oasis surrounding a central pool with a view of the ocean it's certainly pretty but it doesn't come cheap. Definitely on the more luxury side of Caye Caulker's accommodation portfolio Seaside gives you clean, comfortable and bright rooms with lovely vistas from the window. The bathroom is also light and airy and the shower reasonably hot and powerful. The complimentary breakfast includes some tasty baked goods and purportedly fruit salad which may or may not be present at any given time. It's filling and pleasant enough but couldn't really be served with less ceremony if they hit you in the nose with a cinnamon bun. There are no plates, the paltry offerings are just plonked on the corner of the bar, and the lack of formality can feel a little awkward; can I just, is it ok if I take one of these rolls now...?!

The Seaside Cabanas were so handy to the water taxi...no need for a golf cart taxi to take you anywhere. They are brightly painted...right on the ocean...quiet...clean and comfortable.
You were able to book tours right in the office...we did with night snorkeling...and booked bikes to travel around the island there as well.
The complimentary breakfast of coffee, fresh fruit...soooo good, and fresh buns from the bakery are just a perfect way to start your day.
We had a small toilet issue...for some reason it started leaking...once the office was notified, it was attended to with speed and effectiveness.
Staff was very friendly and hard working.
Very pleased that we stayed here, and are thinking of a repeat visit next year.!

Room Tip: Rooms 1,3 and 2,4 have an upper deck with a plunge pool...next time we are going for these!!!

Everything was just great - the view of the ocean from the room, the warm & welcoming design of the room, the large pool, the complementary bakery & fruits at mornings (something rare at this island), the nice reception staff & the comfortable location at the center next to the water taxis.
Highly recommended :-)

Hop off the water taxi and Seaside Cabanas is just a few steps away. Our room was very clean, pretty, comfortable and flooded with sunshine. The inclusive breakfast was a nice touch to start the day. The rolls were okay, but the fruit salad was my favorite. We ate our breakfast under the palapa staring at the sea and palm trees. The pool area was a nice place to hang out if you weren't busy doing something else on the island. The island is so tiny and this hotel is so well situated that you could easily walk to restaurants, shopping, the split and tour operators. I also need to mention how friendly and efficient the staff was. It is a little pricey for Caye Caulker, but I would stay there again and highly recommend this hotel in a heartbeat.

we recently stayed at seaside cabanas and upon arrival was so impressed by the entire property. It was quaint and right on beach with amazing views. we stayed in unit #6 which was definitely best unit for reasonable price. amazing views of ocean from 2 windows and cute balcony with perfect view. We loved the entire staff. So professional yet down to earth also! LAURA at front desk was like an old friend when we returned to stay there(she even let me borrow her own bike for a quick ride to the store!!), she was so welcoming and always made a point to say Hi and ask how we were doing every time I saw her! We had plans to go to Ambergris Caye for 5 days after caye caulker, but after only 2 days in noisy ambergris caye, we called seaside to see if they had availability to return again to Caye Caulker to check back in to seaside cabanas for remainder of vacation! They did not have our fav #6 available but accommodated us to another unit, which was fine as long as we ended our vacation at seaside cabanas.Our cleaning lady, DORA was so immaculate and really paid attention to the tiniest details of cleaning our unit, as I watched her from the pool one day cleaning right down to polishing the outside door! Another favorite was MARY at front desk who always had a warm smile. the entire front desk staff was so nice. The lady who ran the morning bar (right off the pool so nice!!)and unexpected complimentary continental breakfast every morning was very accommodating and had a nice combination of tropical fruit, pastries, tea & coffee a nice bonus ! The groundkeeper took such pride in his pool area and it showed because the flowers and foliage was truly beautiful. The small pool area was so beautiful just feet from beach and perfect views of ocean. The lonely planet belize book does not even remotely justify how beautiful this quaint property was. It is truly a hidden treasure at such a reasonable price. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful yet breathtaking property to stay here. we will definitely be back! lynn & dave

Room Tip: Unit #6 the best views for the price. Look on seaside website for pictures they are exactly what it...

Highly recommended. Friendly staff. Great deal for the money. Very safe hotel with cameras and a night security guard. Also liked the location since it was in the middle of the island. I would definitely stay with them on any return trips.
