De Real Macaw is a easy short walk from the ferry jetty with a excellent waterfront location. Taxis (golf-carts) are expensive and you can easily walk everywhere. The staff are friendly. Rooms are clean and tidy with AC.

Really enjoyed our stay at De Real Macaw. Rob and Jesse are very easy to work with, and the location is right in the middle of the island so it is a 5 minute walk max from everything. The rooms were very clean as they were cleaned thoroughly every day and the staff was very friendly. The rooms were nice...

My Gf and I just got back from Caye CAulker and had a great time! We stayed at De Real Macaw. The staff was awesome. The rooms were large and clean. The AC worked perfectly and it even had a ceiling fan which is a nice bonus. I would definitively go back and stay there. Great location central to everything....

This was our second stay here and I cannot express how accommodating and helpful Rob, Jessie and the staff are. My daughter wanted to get married on Caye Caulker, so my husband, sister and I went ahead of every one to plan it. During our stay we had a welcome BBQ in the courtyard for the grooms family and Rob...

I booked very last minute and was offered the budget room. It was tiny but cute. I didn't plan on staying in my room all day so it was exactly what I needed. Bed was comfy. Tv didn't work and there did seem to be a lot of Mosquitos at night. Decided to add another night and was able to...

We loved De Real Macaw. We were looking for a very inexpensive, yet visually appealing and quaint place to stay. The owner, Rob, is obviously someone who wanted to live on an island and not be bothered, but needed a source of income. I got to teach my boyfriend what a Parrot Head was. ;) We loved his no-nonsense way...

I booked a room here 3 months prior to arrival and paid with credit card to GUARANTEE reservation. When I arrived the owner from Seattle, Rob, somehow forgot my reservation and was fully booked. He was quite sneaky and thinking on his feet and gave me a room in the back what wasn't what I booked and wasn't part of...

When we fail, we appreciate honest feedback that shows us where we fell short and where we need to improve. We slip up occasionally. Travelers and hoteliers that use this site frequently, know to be cautious of reviews that go to the extreme, favorable or unfavorable, and...

Great location, fantastic island, must visit! Rooms was ok, price was ok, guy in charge lacked any personality, like he didn't want to be there. We were paying for the room and location so it wasn't so bad, but found him hard work. Enjoy bar next door a complete winner, one of the best lobsters we had there... Still stay...

My apologies to this reviewer for affecting your stay with my moods and indifference. It's part of my being human and imperfect. No excuses though. You deserved better, and again I apologize. We appreciate that you found our accommodations suitable, it reflects well on our housekeeping staff. Thank you for staying with us.

The room was simple, but clean and comfortable, with a good A/C unit and fantastic shower - in fact it was the best temperature and pressure we had out of 6 places we stayed on our trip! The hammocks and loungers on the porch and in the yard were great for relaxing. De Real Macaw was in a great location...

This was a great place to stay in terms of location. At the time we thought we had done really well and really enjoyed our stay here. Looking back it was one of the more expensive places we chose to stay in our four month Central America trip. But saying that, Caye Caulker is more expensive than other Central American...
