#216414 - 07/17/02 12:42 PM But which hotels are the ones to look at for Dec???
I have been to just about every website that is available now of hotels and even Tina's hostel (very nice if I wasn't on my honeymoon)but can't really tell which one to choose. I have narrowed it down I think to about 4 places. Could I get feedback from some local people about which is best?

The places are as such:
Seaside Cabanas
Caye Caulker beach house rentals
motel 1788
or maybe morning star guest house.

We will be staying for 3 weeks so we don't want something too too expensive with maybe an $70-$80 dollar limit.

Please any advice is very much appreciated as there is no way for us to really tell what these places are like.

Thanks again,
Scott and Marina.

In you case I would go with Tree Tops Hotel. I like the rooms and the privacy that the area has to offer. Doris & Terry have done a good job at there hotel. You will need to book early since they are always full.

I would definitely stay at Tree Tops. My wife and I went to CC for a week this year and stayed at Tree Tops. Doris and Terry are very nice hosts and the rooms are among the nicest and cleanest on the island. On your list of 4, Seaside Cabanas is the only other place I would consider. But Tree Tops will still be better if you can get in. By the way, when you talk to Doris tell her Brian and Jenni from Kansas say hello. Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!

Thanks alot for the good advice. I appreciate hearing it from everyone rather than trying to rely on the websites. Sometimes pictures can be deceiving. Seems as though everyone is very helpful and happy around CC and I really look forward to our stay there.

I have not stayed at Treetops, but I would as I've heard so very many good things about it. If you'd like to know more about Treetops or other hotels, go to I was in CC for 3 wks during low season, met sev'l folks who stayed/had stayed there...all good. A few slight negatives but nothing significant. All said great value for price.

Maybe it's just me, but I'd like to do a little more upscale for my honeymoon. Check out Chocolate's room, if it's available. Lan Sluder of rates it highly. Chocolate is amazing, an island a search on him at

The forum is very informative. I used it almost exclusively to research my own trip...oh, I used other sites, but found the forum & belizefirst to be the most valuable for me.

Some folks say that 3 wks on CC is too long. Not so. You can do most all trips from CC, snorkeling is great, swimming at the split very pleasant, music is amazing, so is much of the food (simple pleasures!), sunsets & -rises, etc., etc. And staying that long allows you to get to know some of the shopkeepers who are all local & many Belizeans & CC'rs. Good people, interesting, friendly....Can you tell I loved it? Going back for 2 weeks this fall.

Try jungle/manatee trips w/Chocolate, snorkeling w/Carlos & Salvador, def do Goff's Caye, Hol Chan, Shark Ray Aley, sunset/sunrise canoe round-the-island w/Allie @ Cayboard Connection. Guatemalan coffee, bread and fruit at Cindy's, lunch/dinner at Syd's, lobster and conch fritters at Sandbox, etc. etc. sniff....sniff...I miss CC!! Have a great trip & a great life together.

For your budget, I would stay at Tree Tops. My boyfriend and I just got back, and the place was spotless, great decor, and a pretty garden to relax in. They owners are pretty friendly and informative as well. Reserve the room w/ private bath and a/c for privacy.

We had a friend staying at Seaside Cabanas, and they are nice, but they were asking around $90 off season. A bit too much..

Check out the web site It is one of the newest guest house and cabana's on Caye Caulker. There has been many upgrades to the buildings since the page was created. There is a/c, refrigerator, huge front porch w/tatch roof and a great view of the sea, plus daily maid service.

De real macaw is "the real thing"! What you see, "is" what you get!

If this board is any indication of the hospitality of everyone at CC, I know it is going to be a fabulous trip. Thanks everyone for your comments and suggestions.
