Bill and Adrianne were friendly, but not too friendly, professional yet and relaxed. Maya Beach has several excellent restaurants within a short walking distance, whether you walked on the beach on the paved road (which has very little traffic). Bill set us up on the Monkey River Tour (Cool!), snorkeling with Splashdive, and the Xunantunich/Blue Hole trip. All three were... More

Just what we needed. The place is beautiful! Bill and Adriane are super nice and gracious hosts with great recommendations about things to do in the area. Or just sit around and enjoy peacefully relaxing on your own beach, but a great time will be had. Note: If you're looking for an air conditioned room where you are sheltered from... More

Barnacle Bills Beach Bungalows was exactly what we wanted- A hut on the beach with nothing between us and the ocean except a few palm trees and two deck chairs. Just like that beer commercial. This is how it went when my fiance' (now wife) and I discussed our plans- He: Where would you like to go for our honeymoon?... More

The perfect place for our relaxing vacation! The bungalows themselves are amazing and well designed. The beach is of course beautiful. Snorkeling, sea kayaking, walking the beach, and biking were fun. Bill's recommendations were spot on. Great food and cheap drinks in easy walking distance.

My husband and I stayed at Barnacle Bill's Beach Bungalow January 23, 2014 to February 2, 2014 and had a great vacation. It was exactly what we were looking for; on the beach, private, within walking distance of great restaurant's, and great company and advice when we wanted. Bill and Adriane were always quick to reply and answer all questions... More

My wife and I spent about 10 days at Barnacle Bill's and it was amazing. Bill and Adriane were perfect hosts and were a great resource when it came to finding great food, planning a snorkeling trip or car/golf cart rentals. The bungalow was absolutely perfect for what we needed. Since it had a kitchen we were able to save... More

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon, and it fit our style right on. After spending time walking, and riding the bikes along the peninsula, we decided we had picked the best place to stay. Placencia proper is pretty busy, and lost many trees in a storm, while Maya Beach is more secluded and quiet. Bill and Adriane... More

We stayed a BBills in June 2013... with no AC the nights are to HOT to sleep. Not sure how this issue can ever be resolved. The beach is littered with plastic and junk the sea washes up. The clean up guy rakes the trash into the Ocean and the waves wash the trash back up to the beach. Their... More

We stayed at Barnacle Bill's 3/22/2013 - 3/30/2013. The best eight relaxing days on the beach. Thanks to Bill for setting up the golf cart and advising us on the local eateries.

This place has it all. It's situated right on the beach where you can get up in the morning and enjoy your coffee with an incredible view. The bungalow has a kitchen where we could make breakfast and save money by making a couple of dinners. The market is just down the street so that was convenient. Bill and Adriane... More
