Let me start by saying both Tom and his family are lovely and the location of the hotel is only a short walk up the beach to the main area (although a 20 minute walk from the split). We stayed here with our tour group and everyone had the same complaints. Rooms are ridiculously hot and beds / pillows are...

I stayed in this accommodation with a tour group and found it to be adequate for the short time we were there. I shared an upstairs room with a friend and the majority of the other rooms were occupied by our tour. The room is quite large, however sparsely furnished. There is a ceiling fan and numerous louvers which assist...

We stayed here as part of a tour and I assume that the only advantage of this place is that it is cheap. Basic doesn't even really begin to describe it. Soap is not provided - make sure to bring your own - and whether you'll have hot water is a bit of a lottery. The rooms are not particularly...

Caye Caulker is the most wonderfully peaceful place to stay, and Tom's Hotel is an ideal lodging to call it a night. My girlfriend and I spent a night in one of the rooms, which gets points for being so cheap, but we really loved the cabanas. A short walk from the ferry and right by the water.

We stayed here on a organised tour. One of the worst places I've ever stayed in. No SOAP at all, not even on the basin for hand washing. The street light and the hallway light stays on all night and both my windows were right near both lights, super bright, like daylight in the room. A drain ran outside my...

A friend and I stayed at toms for 5 nights- double bed, shared bathroom, paid 22$usd total per night. There's a beautiful view and the location is on the chiller side of the island. Our beds were clean and pretty comfy, and the ceiling fan kept us cool. It's definitely not luxurious, but I've stayed in some sketchy places and...

When you think of a basic hotel that's it. There's not even the soap let alone a glass for toothbrushes. The rooms are small and very hot ( no AC) and I seriously thought of sleeping outside. Moreover the windows face a small street with very strong lights and there is no way to screen the windows; it seems to...
