"I wanted a special location to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and Typsy Gecko exceeded my expectations and "WOW'ed" my husband. The owner was SO helpful, very responsive with information and answering all of my questions. She even helped me plan special events for my husband. From the moment we arrived, everyone was so kind and Javier picked us up in an air conditioned, comfy van. When we entered the house, it takes your breath away. The pictures are beautiful but like the old saying goes "it doesn't do it justice". Every room was beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean and complete with everything you would need - and more! Mable had prepared a delicious punch and a beautiful flower arrangement. Step outside into absolute paradise! The patio, the pool, the beach, the pier.....I can go on and on. Everything was pristine clean and as you try to take everything in, you're already figuring how many days you get to soak it all in before having to go home. Within minutes of arriving, we were in the pool, drinking punch and didn't have to do anything but start relaxing. I can't say enough about the staff - Javier, Mabel, Domingo, Mickey, the groundskeeper, housekeeper, pool guy - everyone so warm and friendly and GENUINELY want to ensure you are having a good time. Mabel and Domingo helped me plan the most memorable night for my husband with a candlelight dinner on the pier that was like a scene in a romantic movie - indescribable! My husband said he will never forget that night. Mabel was so helpful in helping us with the tours that were perfect for what we were wanting. We did 2 snorkeling tours with Splash - one to Silk Caye and the other to Laughing Bird Caye. Silk Caye has amazing snorkeling - we saw too many things to write in this review and capped the day off by swimming with the nurse sharks, sting rays and sea turtles. Laughing Bird Caye was a prettier Caye but didn't have as much sea life as Silk Caye - at least the day we were there. The meals prepared by Domingo and Mickey were delicious, plentiful, beautifully presented and ooohhhh the deserts! They were so accommodating as to what time we wanted to the meals. Domingo even did our grocery shopping for us! The pier is a perfect place to relax, read, sleep - Chillax! The paddle boards and kayaks were fun to use and explore the area. The golf cart was a perfect mode of transportation - no need to rent a car. We can't wait to return - this place is amazing!!!"
