For sure reserve room number 2 - that is the best room with best view and wind. Mara herself is very accommodating and helpful in any aspect - just ask questions or for a help/guidance needed. We really enjoyed our stay there. Rooms is spacious enough and very clean. If I go there, I would definitely stay there. I would...

The room was clean and pleasant enough but the live-in relatives that lounge in the courtyard all day really intimidated us and made us feel very uncomfortable. Not a very friendly atmosphere. The mosquito nets over the windows kept falling down and the fridge was very rusty. There are much better options available so we'd reccommend shopping around.

When you arrive at Caye Caulker there's a lot of people that try to take you to Tropical Paradise, but we wanted to be closer to the Split, as we found it a bit cleaner and the water was nicer. Mara was very honest, the place was clean.They cleaned our room and changed our towels everyday! For that price don't...

The rooms are clean. You get a hammock and a couple of chairs on your own balcony. Hot water works. WIFI works pretty much consistently. The location with the private jetty at the end of the island is great. I'd definitely recommend Mara's place.

Mara's Place is a great little spot on Caye Caulker. You cannot beat the price, location and convenience of this little hotel. Yes, the rooms are a bit small and outdated...but the island is a simple place so I was not expecting anything elaborate in the rooms. The bathroom space was very convenient, although the water is a little salty...

Amazing value considering what you get - 45BZD and we had a huge room with two double beds, a private bathroom and two shady hammocks out the front just for us (room 1). OK it's not the best decorated place you could say and the bathroom is a little run down, but it's such a great location right by the...

Maras was good value and a great location. The family who owns the propery has their residence on the same plot of land and I have to say they were not helpful or very welcoming. I'm going back in December but won't stay again.

Super easy to find, Mara's has a number of 2 bed cabanas each with a private bath. Quiet and economical. Directly across from the only public swimming area on the Island.

I stayed at Mara's Place on a whim for three nights in March 2012. I was on the mainland and decided to fly out to Caye Caulker with only a few hours notice. I wrote to five places inquiring about availability, and Mara's Place was the first to respond. Mara's is located right next to the split on the "main...
