Tobacco Caye Paradise is an absolutely amazing place to stay if you are looking for an inexpensive over the water cabana to relax. The cabanas are fairly simple, but they do have showers, a flush toilet, and a sink. It was over 90 degrees each day we were there, so the shower felt amazing and hot water was not necessary....

We had an amazing 5 days here. This truly is paradise. Very helpful and friendly staff and beautiful little huts on the water. Diving is possible at reefs end otherwise a nice place for snorkeling or swimming (Beware of stingrays however, they hide in the sand and apparently leave quite painful stings). Would definitely come here again and can warmly... More

This was one of the best travel experiences I've had. From the start we were greeted with professionalism and courtesy.

Astonishing. Over water cabanas in the Cayes (with massive tasty meals) for this price may not last for long. These wooden cabanas are solid but the gaps in the wood and windows mean you hear the sea and feel the breeze all day and night, connecting, not separating (like most resorts) you with the sea that you are perched over....

This was just amazing. We stayed here for four nights and had a great time. The cabanas are maybe basic becuase they lack airco and the beds are mediocre, but the location and complete lack of stress made it unforgettable. We really enjoyed the food, which was very diverse and cooked with love. In particular, the home-baked cookies after lunch... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tobacco Caye Paradise Cabins is a small Belizean-own lodge with six private "over the water" beach cabanas. All cabanas face north to the Belize Barrier Reef and have wonderful decks perched over turquoise tropical waters. Each deck has a hammock and an amazing view of the Caribbean Sea. Accommodations are clean, comfortable and charmingly rustic. There are five 1 bedroom/1 bathroom cabanas, and one 2 bedroom/1 bathroom cabana. Each of the cabins have private bathrooms and rainwater-fed showers. While there is no electric or water utilities on the island, however, we collect our own rainwater and generate our own electricity from solar and generator (when necessary) power. We have wi-fi access on the island, as well. Delicious meals are available in the dining hall, where you can dine with fellow travelers and share the day's adventures. ... more   less
