Very Nice Hotel
Posted Feb 18, 2017
We stayed in Caye Caulker for 4 days in February 2017. Great island, very slow, laid back pace of life. We stayed at the Plaza Hotel and loved it. Easy check-in, good staff, very nice room, fairly quiet, and the room had a small refrigerator. The only drawback was we heard construction noise from a nearby building every morning around 6:30 a.m. but it was no big deal.
Caye Caulker is not for everyone - life moves very slowly. We loved it. The locals and tourists were both very friendly. You can walk the main part of the island in less than an hour. We took a snorkeling tour - very nice. There are so many different companies to pick from. There is no real beach on Caye Caulker. We heard most people swam at the Split but it was damaged in a recent hurricane so there is a lot of construction going on. When this is finished it should be pretty nice.
There are a lot of good places to eat, from hole in the walls to some fancier places. Chen's Market is next to the hotel so you can stock up on food and drinks. Keep in mind that Caye Caulker and San Pedro are some of the most expensive places in Belize, and Belize tends to be more expensive than Mexico.
We would definitely go back to both Caye Caulker and the Plaza Hotel.
