We´ve spend there 7 night´s and it was wonderfull. Really good cabins run by a very friendly family. Very close to the split and also good for diving. The mangoshakies are excellent. Daliy delivery of fresh towels.

There were three of us who stayed in a 2 bed room. Nothing fancy but clean, affordable and very convenient (close to the split and the hotel owns the dock opposite so you can use the dock whenever you please). We slept very well (not loud at all). The ladies at the front desk were nice and very chilled out.

I was working in Belize and decided to head over to Caye Caulker. My last visit was in 1990 and found it significantly changed, but still nice. Since it was low season I didn't make reservations and just wandered around. Mara's Place is close to the Split. I had a wide choice of rooms and chose #4. It is up...

We found Mara's after walking into all the hostels and hotels on Caye Caulker. We decided on Maras because of its cost and fast wifi. The room was perfect- a full bed, some books, a closet nook, and an in room bathroom. Though there was no AC, there was a good fan and a decent breeze. We also really appreciated...

The room was everything you'd expect for Caye Caulker: reasonably priced, clean, and working wifi. The bar serves a great happy hour and yummy ice cream, which is a nice plus. It's also quiet at night and has a communal kitchen, which is great if you want to save money on meals.

We just wanted to go kitesurfing at the only kitesurfing spot on Caye Caulker which is right in front of Mara's Place. We were friendly to everyone, but two staff member of Mara's place screamed at us and totally freaked out because of nothing. We stood for about 1 minutes on his dock with a kite in the zenith to...

My GF and I stayed her For three days in March. We were in the upstairs pink building. We liked the location of Mara's Place, near the split. The rooms are small but adequate. The deck with a hammock and chairs was nice. The staff are helpful, and friendly. The beach and dock out front were great for hanging out...

I made a reservation for Mara's Place solely based on reviews I found online which looked reasonable and because my wife and I were traveling over the Christmas season and didn't want to find ourselves on the island without any vacancies. I wish I hadn't, as Mara's might be the worst place I've ever stayed. We made a reservation for...

This place is pretty good, small little cabbins that are clean and have hot water. They have a private deck and dock for guests only and we were always the only ones on it. You can swim from it and it has hamocks. One thing to be aware of is this place also sells drinks to people from the street,...

Had a wonderful trip to Caye Caulker for New Years. Rooms were super cute, staff was very accommodating/helpful, and the location was perfect-just steps from the split where there is swimming. Also, Mara's Place also has a private dock with chairs and hammocks. The island is small, so walking everywhere is quite easy. Would definitely stay here again in the...
