Our honeymoon was my first time leaving the country. Belize was my first passport stamp. Needless to say, planning international travel was a bit stressful. I fretted over the right destination, fun activities and a safe hotel. The worry was for nothing.
We arrived by plane to the island and took a quick taxi ride to the boutique hotel. Caye Casa was our home for 4 nights and it exceeded our expectations. Much like my feelings for Mike, it was love at first sight for me and Caye Casa.
We checked in and we walked to our room. It was small(ish), but had a rather great view. I started to unpack, but Mike asked me to wait.
Being the eternal optimist, bargain hunter and deal maker he walked out of the room and back into the office. Within minutes he returned with new keys and said that we were moving upstairs to the suite. Sweet!
Our new view was a million dollar view and the room was huge. Everything I imagined our honeymoon room would be! 😉
The only teeny-tiny, minuscule, barely noticeable “issue” was a broken kitchen faucet. However, Julie, the owner, went out of her way to have the repair man come while we were out on an excursion and gave us a nice bottle of champagne as a thank-you-for-being-flexible-guests gift. I only tell you about the broken faucet to show you how great their customer service is and how they handled the situation.
The property’s location is excellent – steps from the beaches and a few minutes walk to the shopping and restaurants in downtown San Pedro.
My favorite part of the property is the dock. We swam in the crystal clear ocean almost everyday. It was really hard to leave the peace of this piece of paradise – but continuing our honeymoon in Peru was a good consolation!
