8/10 Very good

My stay at Drift Inn Cayo was very pleasant. The room was clean and comfortable, staff were very friendly and helpful, amenities were what one would expect from viewing pictures of the location and reading other reviews. The only reasons that I can't give an "excellent" rating are a) revelers were excessively noisy one night till perps 3:30 a.m. and b) there was a failure of the water system on my final night, requiring the use of bottled water for facial and hand washing. But the issue with the water was beyond the hotel management's controland it was repaired quickly. I would not hesitate to stay at the Drift Inn Cayo again!

2/10 Poor

The owner was onsite and on 2 different occassions I had the pleasure of listening to her berate her employees. This was a verbal and insulting tongue lashing both times. The employee(s) looked insulted and humiliated and to be honest,I was thoroughly embarassed for them. Such an unpleasant experience. I'm sure if these 2 employees could find other worthwhile work somewhere else, they would be gone. I hope I never ever ever have to see or witness this treatment of another human being. Degrading and insulting.

10/10 Exceptional

An absolute gem! Drift Inn Cayo is in a great location in Cayo. I got tours organized to ATM caves and Caracol from reception. Their food and drinks at The Aguada were such good prices! The ambiance was relaxing and staff were so welcoming. Rooms were clean, ac cold, wifi worked well. I stayed at both Drift Inn locations during my stay in Belize and couldn't have asked for a better place as a solo traveler.
