Historical Traveler Reviews Tropical Paradise Hotel Caye Caulker
Excellent value Villa
The Villa Stella is a small very good value Guest House type accomodation. It is kept scrupiously clean by the owners and they provide a really plentiful continental breakfast. A very good price was agreed by contacting the owners directly.
I enjoyed the journey from St Marks square to the Villa "30 Minutes", the views from the waterbus were wonderful.
Some people may find the distance from Lido to Venice a small hinderance but I was glad to escape the crowds at the end of the day.
I would highly recomend Villa Stella to anybody looking for good quality accomodation at a very reasonable price.
Far from town, but a great bargain!
The ONLY negative for this hotel is its location. The island of Lido is a 35 minute boat ride from central Venice. Granted, one only has to do this ride twice each day, but one must also plan for the entire day and not rely on returning to the hotel for supplies, rest, etc... That said, the rooms were VERY clean, the bathrooms were newly rennovated, and the staff was charming. Breakfast was above average for hostel fare. I'd return again because the price far outmeasures the distance. A great value.

... heard of- acqua alta. This is where the city
floods, sometimes up to knee height. It only used to happen ten times a year-
but now was up to 60 and most frequently
in November and December. Learning this made us a little wary of our
visit, but we were blessed with sunshine (to the point of coat removal) and no

... br> Lovely! Good art, terrazzo floors, and a wall of windows, with a balcony overlooking the Piazza dei Frari. There's a gondolier docked on the canal below and everyday neighborhood Venetians passing through the piazza in front. After a quick regroup we're out the door into my favorite area of Venice (the Dorsodura) and within four turns I am completely lost. Thanks to my compadres' good humor and map reading skills plus Google Map, we did find our way to lively Piazza ...

Now this may not be the appropriate forum to discuss this incident and who was leading the way but all Battery Boy wants to say is look at Video Girl's navigational record. Battery Boy is convinced that it has something to do with a Southern Hemisphere girl being in the Northern Hemisphere. So from now on if Video Girl says to go right, Battery Boy turns left.
But it was impossible to get annoyed with ...
We left Rome very uneventfully and after getting on the circle road we went off north for about an hour and a half towards Perugia. We stopped in Montefalco, another medieval walled hilltop town with a nice Aire and had a quiet afternoon. Lots of wine shops in town and great views over the valley. Ben has decided he likes wine barrels and was most impressed with a shop that had a barrel car and barrel chairs and sofas. The next day we stopped about ten ...
If you know me, you know I love quotes. One of my favorite quotes of all time is “Veni, Vidi, Vici” by Julius Caesar. Translated (in English) the famous quote ” I came, I saw, I conquered”. I love saying it it Latin because I love the way it sounds and it’s so much more fun to say. (Now I know you are all saying it and thinking the same…haha). Anyways, it feels only appropriate to end my ...
