Mr. Badillo was born and raised on the caye and became a fisherman. As he got older and fishing became more difficult, due to age and over-fishing, he opted for a change in livelihood and opened the hotel in 1992.

He also rents golf carts, runs a taxi service and sells ice. Mr. Badillo is an interesting person with quite a history in the community, having served as Village Chairman, Justice of the Peace and Director of the Fishermens Cooperative.

The hotel property also has a bit of history because he bought it from the Catholic Mission and made a promise to the bishop that he would not open any bars or discos. He has kept his promise and the hotel remains a quiet place.
