Raul's Rooms

Caye Caulker

Hotel Description
Raul?s Rooms is a quiet, family-run hotel located in the middle of Caye Caulker. The accommodation is located on the same lot as the owner?s house and so guests feel like they are "at home" when they stay here, which is just what the owners want. The two rooms each have two beds, a closet/storage space, small refrigerator, TV and a private bath with hot water. For those who are fishing off of the caye, there is a BBQ grill available for those who want to cook up their catch of the day. The rooms have a west-facing veranda perfect for watching the sunsets. The owner, Raul, is also a fisherman and he offers fishing and snorkel tours for guests.

History & Owners
Mrs. Elodia Young is one of the original descendants of Luciano Reyes, the first owner of the island. Since Raul has spent most of his life in the fishing industry and knows a lot about the history of the lobster industry and the development of the island. He tells stories of how they used to go to San Pedro on a sailboat before they had an outboard motorboat. Elodia learned about the hotel industry when she was the manager of another hotel on the island. She also makes incredible cakes for weddings and special celebrations. Raul built the rooms in 1994 and the family decided to name them after him since it would be easy for people to remember.

Location & Directions
Traveller's Palm Street, Caye Caulker Village
Raul?s Rooms is located approximately halfway between the airstrip and the front dock. From the front dock, turn left on the main street. At Tropical Paradise, turn right and go 2 blocks and then turn left. Go one block south and you will see Raul?s Rooms on the left. The best way to find it is to look for the row of traveler?s palms which are large palm trees that look like a fan. Coming from the airstrip, just walk up the lane 3 or 4 blocks and you will see the palm trees. From either direction, it?s about a 10-minute walk.
