I have stayed at Exotic Caye 3 times and am returning again in May. I love it! Don and Carol are from Canada and manage the resort as well as own the bar, Crazy Canucks. The people who go to the bar make you feel at home. They are simply wonderful. Jesse, Peter, Paul & Heather, Roger & Skunk, Roger & Susan, Rich, Dave, and I am sure I am missing many more. They welcome you with open arms.
Christian, Rick and Alejandro are the bartenders and again are probably some of the best, if not the best, on the island. (IMHO)
The resort is nice. The deluxe rooms are awesome and the standard rooms are fine. It all depends on where you want to spend your money.
The pool isn't the best on the island, but it does cool you down on those hot, hot days.
Monkey Bites is the restaurant on site and is open from 7-3:00 p.m. Kathy is the owner and makes the best cinnamon french toast.
A relatively new dive shop opened up, Ocean Adventures, and Clinton can book almost any trip you desire.
Bottom line, this resort makes you feel like you are home. And it's not just the owners, managers or employees; it's the locals that come there every night to have a cocktail or three and pass along the news of the day.
Whichever resort you choose. I know you will enjoy!
