The name is tres fancy but the place is simple and affordable. Not on the sea but a good location (there are few bad ones in Caye Caulker). Close to everything.
Guide books and friends seem to agree that this hotel is a great deal. And there’s a cute background story. From my friend Erik:
Gertraud, a nurse from Austria who came as a young woman to dive; fell in love with her dive master, Frenchie Novelo, an island boy. A romantic story, living happily ever after.
Their daughter moved to the US, married, has grandkids they fly up to see. Son Dominic married a girl from Cayo, lives there and they have a baby. Dominic does the day-to-day running of Frenchies dive shop in Caye Caulker.
No website! Email Gertraud at [email protected] or call for a reservation.
