The Cayes and Atolls Hotels

The more budget-oriented cayes, such as Tobacco and Caulker, have mostly small hotels and simple cabins, often built of wood and typically without any amenities beyond a fan or two, though this is changing on Caulker, which now has a number of somewhat upscale hotels. At the other end, notably on Ambergris Caye, are luxurious resorts and deluxe "condotels" (condo developments where individual owners

rent their units on a daily basis through a management company) and an increasing number of vacation villas, usually rented by the week. Nearly all accommodations on Ambergris Caye have air-conditioning, and most also have swimming pools. Regardless of which caye you're staying on, lodgings have several things in common: they're small (usually fewer than 30 or 40 rooms), low-rise (nearly all have three stories or fewer), and almost always are directly on the water.

Off-season (typically May to around Thanksgiving), most island hotels, except some budget hotels, reduce rates by around 20% to 40%.
