  • Amazing Experience...

    "All I can say about the Bamboo House is that is was everything we were hoping for and more. The house is gorgeous, the staff first class and the location cannot be beat. I was with a group of 8 people and everyone of us loved our experience. If you are traveling with a large group of friends or as a family this is the place for you. It's location allows you to experience everything the island has to offer. Whether a quick golf cart ride to city center or a walk on the beach to La Palapa for some cold drinks in a tube, nothing is far away. Most importantly Bertrand(the owner), his family and staff are always trying to improve your experience. They genuinely care about their guests and that is all you can ask for. This is my first review of any kind. Plain and simple it was a trip of a life time and want to make sure people make the Bamboo House there desitination in San Pedro."

  • Love the boat, the location and staff

    "Overall our family (boys ages 5,4 and 2) had an absolutely wonderful time and Casablanca is a lovely house. The Good: The boat: having unlimited access to a boat in an area with a coral reef, other islands and resorts to visit, and great fishing was beyond an added amenity. It made our trip. Brian and Alec: All of the service staff were excellent. They were attentive without being invasive and always tended to any issues without hesitation. Spearfishing at the reef with Brian was one of my personal favorite memories The location: I felt the location was perfect, but perhaps not for everybody. The house is about a 30 minute golf cart ride (5-10 minutes boat) down a bumpy trail to town. We all loved the little adventure. There were other resorts with walking distance as well. We highly endorse Rojo Lounge for eating or drinking. The kitchen and Great Room: The kitchen in the house is huge and the layout of open kitchen, dining room, living room, patio was great and very family friendly. The cleanliness: The staff did a great job of cleaning the house and doing our laundry. The lady who cooked for us the odd time also did a nice job with the meals and cooking the fish we caught! The dock: It was a great place for my boys to fish from. Plenty of time was spent out there! The Not-So-Good: Small things weren't maintained the best. Ceiling fans didn't work, light bulbs were out, the toilet seat was only fastened on one side. The DVD player never worked. Flatware and glassware were both well understocked. Old mattress -there are indents on both sides where people sleep. Should be replaced.Shower Heads -with no bathtub, Casablanca should offer shower heads that get you wet. No hammock: So many palm trees and no hammock? Really? The bad: The patio furniture: For such a nice property the patio furniture is not even close to adequate. Old, uncomfortable, plastic strap loungers from a discount warehouse. These need to be updated without question. Rooftop patio: Beautiful place to watch the sunset with not one piece of furniture. Dock palapa:Apparently the roof blew off during a hurricane years ago and they never replaced it. Looks terrible and would be nice to have more shade at the end of the dock. The Beach: Need to keep the beach free from the sea grass. Hadn't been touched in weeks on our arrival and it smelt awful I think a minimal capital investment by the ownership could bring the house in line with what they claim it to be and gain 5 stars from me."

  • THE PERFECT FIND

    "I am not going to repeat the other detailed reviews that rave about this wonderful Villa... It's all true... Let me just state that Sally does EVERRYTHING to make sure that you enjoy your stay.. The communication was superb and, frankly, I abused her email hospitality by asking all sorts of general questions not related to the Villa. Because of Sally and her candid information, we were able to purchase a Villa on Ambergris Caye .. Sally; heartfelt thanks for being a mentor when we needed one. Again, I don't need to repeat all of the glowing praise for this Villa.... It's all true.. We "couldn't" have purchased another Villa so quickly without Sally's help. We were there in February 2015"

  • Very relaxing 40th wedding anniversary !!!!!!

    "The entire Caye Villas compound is very well laid out and landscaped beautifully. Our villa was very clean, spacious and super functional with all the amenities you could ask for. Our caretaker David was professional, friendly, helpful and took very good care of us from arrival to departure. We purchased supplies from San Pedro stores and the Mata Grocery directly behind our villa, which was super convenient! Our nights out at the local restaurants were fabulous as well. The ONLY negative was the beach! An untimely sea grass invasion lined the entire eastern shore and smelled as it decomposed."

The key is 1.6 kilometers wide and 40 kilometers in length. Much of the island is ringed with white, sandy beaches.
