“Couldn't have asked for a better place to start our honeymoon”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I was referred to this little gem by a local Belizian. My wife and I stayed here for the first couple of days of our honeymoon and it was a great experience. It was very chill and laid back, the staff was exceptionally pleasant and friendly, and always ready with a quick recommendation for food, bars, dive shops, etc. I look forward to visiting again soon. The atmosphere lent itself to a relaxed environment and we got to know the bar tenders and other guest very quickly. Great place, highly recommended!

Room Tip: Go for one of the rooms with a hot tub on the roof - so great!

This is a beautiful property, well maintained, centrally located with bicycle to rent. The rooms are lovely and done up in Belize style. Some rooms have their own private balconies with hot tub, talapa and hammock! Delicious continental style breakfast included in a very reasonable price. Wonderful, friendly staff on site to help with anything you may need from towels for the pool to tours on and off the caye. This is the place to stay in slow-moving Caye Caulker.

Room Tip: Rooms 1-4 have private balconies. There is also one "honeymoon" suite, too.

I've stayed here twice, once in 2013 and again this month. We love it. It's clean, has AC, has a fantastic pool and bar. We love Jubalos, one of the bartenders... he is awesome! I think it's the best spot on the island. It's close to everything but not so close that there is noise at night. I put the sleep quality at a 4 instead of a 5 just because the bed was stiff, not because of noise or anything like that.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the front gate/reception are quieter because people sometimes tend to gather around...

We stayed for only one night at Seaside Cabanas after a few day stay on San Pedro. We immediately noticed that Caye Caulker is a lot more natural, laid back and lower-end luxury than San Pedro. So if you're looking for high-end, Caye Caulker may not be the place for you, but Seaside Cabanas certainly comes close.

We arrived on the water taxi from San Pedro and were ecstatic to find that Seaside Cabanas sits, literally, right at the end of the water taxi pier. We thought it might be loud and busy because of that, but from inside the resort you don't even know there are other people outside. It's centrally located on the island so it's also a quick walk to restaurants and other things on the island as well. If you arrive or depart by air, it's a $10 or so golf cart taxi ride.

We stayed in cabana #4 with a rooftop jacuzzi and hammock, which was a wonderful touch. We had great views of the rest of the resort and the sea from up top, and it was more private than sitting down by the pool. But - one thing to note about these cabanas is that your rooftop space is NOT private. The stairs for the rooftops on cabanas #3 and #4 are shared stairs between the two buildings. When you're up top, there's no privacy barrier other than a half-wall that goes between the two. And the balcony from cabana #18 is directly above cabana #4's rooftop, so we could see and hear each other. Certainly not a deal breaker, but just to put it out there - these rooftop spots are wonderful, but not private.

The room was clean, spacious and simply, but tastefully decorated. The linens were clean and the bed was comfortable, despite the mattress sitting on top of a cement slab. We had a small refrigerator, a TV and air conditioning. Because it is expensive and taxing to produce electricity for the island, they request that you turn the A/C off whenever you leave the room, so it was comfortable when we were in the room, but not super cold.

The service was good. The staff were friendly and seemed to be on top of things. They kept the hotel and grounds clean and kept us happy.

Though it's not high-end luxury, Seaside Cabanas is one of the top picks on Caye Caulker. If we return, we'll definitely stay here again.

Seaside Cabanas was the perfect place for us. Central to everything on Caye Caulker, staff were so friendly. Stayed upstairs in number 16. Great view of the pool and the sea. So close to the water taxi, no need for a taxi. Price was very reasonable for what we got. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: There really isn't a bad room in the place. Depends if you want near the pool or upstairs.

We LOVED our stay at Seaside Cabanas - I would give it a 5, but it does not have luxury accommodations. It is very clean and well maintained, great atmosphere by the pool, very helpful staff. It was the perfect place to unplug and unwind. We will be going back!

As we got off the water taxi and hadn't had an answer back from our email only hours before we decided to stop anyway . They were able to give us a room , after a long days travelling it was great , clean , nice white puffy towels . A nice spot right on the beach so you get a good breeze .
The pool is lovely . Happy hour is great and so is the nice breakfast offered , yoghurt which we hadn't had in over a week, fruit , some sweet breads and coffee
It's located close to the pier no need to take taxi just walk left when you get off the San Pedro water taxi or the caye caulker one is right in front . Very close to Roses and Habeneros two great restaurants Stay here a couple of different room choices too !!!! Quiet at night too

Room Tip: They have rooms with views on the second floor for sure
