As a family of 6, we stayed in 2 rooms. Both were clean and comfortable. Air conditioning and Wi-Fi were much better than we expected. Our kids really enjoyed the hammocks on the balconies. Pool was nice and clean. The rooms have a small kitchenette with a refrigerator. We did not cook while we were there but there were pots, pans and utensils if you choose to do so. The rooms also had a small coffee maker with coffee, creamer, and sugar. The coffee was tasty! The rooms also came with a container of filtered water that could be refilled at the front desk for a small fee. There are a couple of convenient stores just a short walk away and we did buy some groceries/ snack food and the full size refrigerator was helpful.
Everyone that worked at the resort was friendly. We ate at the Island Magic Grill for lunch and the food was good. The portion sizes were bigger than the other restaurants we visited and tasted much better too. Would definitely stay here again.

My now husband and I stayed here Dec 5-9 for our pre-wedding celebration on Caye Caulker before heading to Ambergris Caye. Booking accommodations in the middle of the pandemic before the country opened was an unknown experience, but Angela and her team were accommodating and helpful throughout the months leading up to our arrival and during our entire stay. We were generously upgraded to the top suite, which has beautiful views of the ocean and pool not to mention the most perfect sun rise viewing point. The room had everything we needed and it was easy to get around the resort. The location was also perfect, just close enough, but far enough away to not be in the thick of things. The restaurant was right on the beach and the viewing from the swings and dock were perfection. Shout out to Deshaun and his crew for keeping the drinks coming along with a huge smile and lots of laughs. Angela at the front desk also helped us book a snorkeling trip last minute, which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. From the airport pick up and water taxi drop off, to the rapid responses to all of our questions and needs on WhatsAp, the entire team at Island Magic was excellent. We will definitely be staying here again in the future, thank you!

The staff here is great. The kitchen staff rocks and makes an amazing breakfast and lunch. Joselin and Vijay make it happen behind the bar and have great conversation. James is doing everything outside and makes sure you’re taken care of on rides, cleaning the pool, etc. The ladies in the office are great too but I didn’t spend anytime in there. This is the only place I will stay in Belize

Thank you so much for your detailed review about our staff. The magic here is precisely that - the staff. Without their eager willingness to serve our guests the magic wouldn't be there. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review highlighting their service. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again at Island Magic.

Incredible stay at Island Magic very comfortable bed and clean room. Great view from room. Very convenient location. We took advantage of the 3 night special that included a very smooth transition from Airport to Water Taxi to Room. Also included breakfast where the food was delicious and the service was attentive, be sure to enjoy a lunch or have a perfect steak for a lovely dinner. Also included a day of snorkeling which was our first experience and the tour company was very accommodating with our challenges and went above and beyond to make the adventure perfect. Be sure to explore the Island as it is very walkable. There are great choices for food & entertainment. Markets are readily accessible for anything you may have forgotten and be sure to catch the Tarpon feeding and the Sting Ray feeding. Check out the seahorses and sunset near The Split. Thank you Island Magic staff for helping to make our 40th anniversary trip very special and memorable.

Staff was super friendly and helpful with getting us situated as well as connecting us with tours and their own bike rentals. Beautiful view from the seaside facing room and a great pier for enjoying the breeze and sunrise view. And while nothing is very far away on such a small island, this hotel felt like it was a great location for some of the best restaurants.

We loved everything about this hotel! The room was fabulous, with a balcony overlooking the pool and the sea!
The staff was so friendly. Everyone from housekeeping to the office staff to bar staff, so friendly and helpful! The bed was very comfortable. It felt like a nice, new firm mattress, which made for a great night sleep.
The resort is in a quiet spot also.
They cleaned our room every day and refilled our water for us each day also:)
The pool and surrounding area is really cool, with a swim-up bar and color changing lights in the pool at night!
Great time here, great food in the restaurant, and really cool area to sit on the beach under shelter. There are swings and also tables on the beach side.
Fabulous stay. Excellent value for money.
We are sad to leave.
Five stars!

We absolutely loved our stay at Island Magic. The staff here are kind and detail oriented. The restaurant food is quite delicious and the value per dollar seems very appropriate. I only rated it 4/5 because I think that they could include bikes and/or with their stays to increase the amenities and due to their location towards the further end of the Main Street. The AC worked great and the room was cleaned immaculate every day.

The hotel is located on the beach , but it is not a swimmable beach. The water is dirty and filled with seaweed. They have a little dock that you can walk out on over the ocean. The staff is Super friendly and helpful. The whole hotel is very dated and in need for some updating. The room had a large refrigerator with a freezer, a microwave, and a small stove top. The room was large with 2 full-size beds. They have a small swimming pool with no ocean view. They also have chairs that swing in a shaded area on the beach. We had lunch in this area. The shrimp shish kabob was overdone, and the 3 chicken tostada like entrée was tasty and light. The rum punches are very watered down with hardly any alcohol.

I really enjoyed the pool and the pool bar area as well as the really nice area on the beach side. Perfect area!

Rooms are clean and AC works really well which we needed

It would be even better if you would offer the bikes for complementary use.

We spent three days on Caye Caulker. Our first time to the island. Super quaint. Super friendly people. You can tell the island has suffered dramatically through COVID. Such a shame, but the wonderful people of Belize are resistant!
The entire staff at Island Magic are wonderful. The owner took us for a golf cart tour of the island. The room was nice, but left a bit to be desired... tv didn’t work, safe was broken too. But your not here for TV and the safe was fixed by giving us a key to the other wise electronic safe.
Breakfast was good at the hotel’s restaurant as were the drinks. Outside seating was very cozy and fun!
Management arranged for a fishing charter and a visit to the tarpon lagoon and the seahorse sanctuary. All were fun. We caught a few dozen fish, hand fed giant tarpon and saw some cute seahorses. Our captain Shaquille and his mate Morton were wonderful. They cleaned our fish upon return and the restaurant made a delicious lunch for us.
The hotel is just south of the busy area so you can enjoy quiet rest, and still be a minute from the action.
I would stay here again.

Thank you for your review! You did catch us at a time we were struggling to recover from the 2020 shutdown. Happy to say we are now in June and finally close to normal. Happy to hear you booked one of our boat tours. We are very proud of having our own private boat tours which is something we started after reopening early in 2021. Next time you come you can try our private inland tours as well (Cave Tubing, Mayan Temples, etc). Your review is rewarding and encouraging for us and helps us tremendously so that we keep abreast of areas that customers appreciate and enjoy as well as areas may need improvement. MUCH appreciated! We look forward to the opportunity to serve you again.

I think that I was a bit suspicious too, but really the hotel is very safe, and once I was there I was very reassured. I may have masked my credit card number when I uploaded. it is a short walk from ferry to Magic Beach Resort, but they do have buggys and so ping them with your ferry time and they will pick up.
