Popeyes Beach Resort
Ranked #15 of 19 Hotels in Caye Caulker
Reviewed 4 January 2012

Staff friendly and helpful...this hotel is spitting distance from the water taxi dock. Huge oceanfront decks. The rooms and bed were basic. Not bad value just for waking up to the view of the ocean and blazing sun.

I was fortunate to spend a couple of months on Caye Caulker, all but a week at Popeyes. Suzanne and I loved it. Andrew and Gilbert really went out of their way daily to make our stay wonderful. Andrew has a way of finding the best method for us to understand the Mayan people and their culture. He is a gifted teacher and writer. Gilbert is the perfect right hand to Andrew and his genuine good humor and desire to help the visitors and guests always makes their stay memorable. Gilbert, as a member of the computer generation is constantly sending photos and email and we look forward to his next posting. One of our best memories is walking out of the hotel across the beach to the pier and taking a mask and snorkel swim with rays, red snapper, and and occasional nurse shark. It seems almost a fantasy.

Room Tip: Upper floor is best.

Like most hotels on Caye Caulker, this one is pretty no-frills. But if you're going to Caye Caulker, you probably aren't expecting a five-star resort in the first place. The rooms were large and clean, the air conditioning worked, and it was largely quiet at night.

The good things about this hotel is that it is located mid-island - right off the main street, close to many of the attractions. I have stayed at the Anchorage in the past, and while it is about equal in accommodations, it is about 10 minutes further away from the "main drag" of Caye Caulker, although that does give it a bit more beach privacy.

The other good thing about Popeye's is that it is very near the water taxi dock, so if you're riding to the island by water taxi, it's just a short walk to your hotel.

Awesome location on the island incredible sunsets, great customer service. Can get a little loud at night from the salsa bar on the beach but not to bad. Very basic room, clean shower/bathroom needs a real door instead of curtain but fine for even an extended stay.

Other than oceanfront, this hotel has little to offer. The A/C was not working, the beds were real hard, no TV and the bathroom had a shower curtain that acted as a door. We stayed 1 night and left for a better (and cheaper) hotel. Staff was also very difficult to get a refund for unused time.

we booked a reservation for the "suite" room for 4 nights in august. we put a deposit of 2 nights on a credit card. what a mistake that was. when we got to the resort - not a resort, just a concrete hotel, we where very disappointed in our room. we spent one night and then checked out. they refused to give us a refund of our 2nd night. they were very rude about it and complained that they would not be able to rent the room again. we went back the next night and the room was rented.
My husband and I are not very picky and routinely stay in budget and unconventional lodgings. This room was about the worst i have ever stayed in. It is a simple room with a bed, futon, bathroom (no door, just a curtain) table and mini fridge. It does have air conditioning, which didn't matter to us. The problem was that a veranda runs all around the building. Your window and door (sliding glass) open onto this veranda. Any one walking by can look into your room. It was almost impossible to get dressed without closing all the drapes. You couldn't leave the windows open at night, because it wasn't safe.
The only good thing about this place was the view.
We paid $65 a night and it was too much. We rented a small house on the beach that was private and gorgeous for only $70 a night.
LOOK ELSEWHERE AND DO NOT GIVE A DEPOSIT.
