You will be pleased to know that over this very quiet period here on the Caye, islanders are not sitting down and wasting time! Many of the businesses that are now closed, are renovating and improving – giving the island an ‘up-grade’.
Many of the hotels are closed for improvements. Seaside Cabanas (one of the most popular hotels on the island) for example is adding in a new super luxurious cabana, adding a jacuzzi to each of the existing cabanas and has re-painted and re-thatched the whole building. The Rainbow hotel is also going for a dramatic new look … they are very much up-grading all of their rooms to high end suites so, along with their fantastic view and central location – this should be a great benefit to the island! The list of hotels up-grading does not stop here … Sea Dreams, Iguana Reef and even Yumas Hostel have all spent some time closed in order to offer a better service to their customers!
Believe it or not even the split is getting a huge ‘make over’. You will be delighted to hear that our favorite daytime location will now be adding a first floor level bar to add to their existing ground floor level bar. This, along with the newly added coconut trees on the beach, will make Caye Caulker a must for any tourists to come to Belize!!! Gossip hounds are mentioning that these renovations are being done to coincide with an TV crews coming down to film an episode on the Bachelor!!
And finally, news to some but the Sports Bar has changed hands and it too has taken on a drastic ‘new look’. Tommy Egan and crew have been working tirelessly to ‘brighten up’ the dark sports bar and make it a more pleasant place to hang out! Although the renovations have not quite finished (we will have pictures on the grand opening later in the month) they opened this weekend and the Ragga crew were there to support with a drink in hand!!
