Took the family of six for Thanksgiving week. We had three rooms including the penthouse. By "American" standards I would call this a 3-star hotel, but for Belize it was the Ritz! The staff was great and friendly, like everyone we met on the island. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The penthouse became our family gathering place and was... More

We had a very pleasant stay at the Iguana Reef Inn. Our bedroom was spacious and nicely decorated (and had a mini fridge), with a nice terrace, and the bathroom had a good shower and all required amenities. The inn itself was a nice, large house composed of various buildings. The pool was more a plunge pool than a swimming... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. Most of Caye Caulker do not have a beach to swim on. Everyone normally goes to the split for that but we are working on adding some sand and cleaning the beach area , we are gradually adding smooth rocks and sand to not drastically damage the ecosystem that is around the...

This hotel is beautiful, the beds are extremely comfortable, the grounds are gorgeous. So here is my BUT! Be EXTREMELY careful around the pool. The tiles are very slippery and there is an extreme risk of falls, I would not let children or elderly anywhere near the pool. If this hotel were in the US they would have been sued... More

Hello, Thank you for choosing us. We are truly sorry for your incident at the pool area. Even though the tiles are for exterior areas especially the pool, we understand that it can get slippery if there is not enough friction. We took your accident seriously and we are spraying a substance that enhances the friction to avoid future falls.... More

I stayed at the Iguna Reef with two girlfriends for a reunion trip. We traveled in late October, which is technically off season.

Ultimate rest and relaxation. Clean, peaceful and quietly secluded, however a 5 to 10 min walk to most everything on the island. Breakfast is continental and will fill you up.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Iguana Reef Inn is located on the water's edge, in a secluded location in the heart of a charming village. The Inn offers decidedly upscale accommodations and the enchantment of the "Old Caribbean" island lifestyle. Relax on the verandah of one of the Inn's richly textured rooms or poolside and settle into the unhurried pace of the island. The Inn's ideal location is just minutes away from the restaurants and night spots on Caye Caulker. ... more   less
