My husband lived in Hawaii for three years and is more of a mountain lover now so I was very surprised when he asked if I would like to spend a week in Belize. I must be a very good girl and of course , I said "yes"! So mid February 2014 we flew from Southern California to Placencia and... More

We stayed for 5 days at this location. We stayed in 3b, the room is small with limited storage for our stuff. However this place is not about the room but the location, location, location. The view we had from the room was great. If room room view wasn't the best the beach has white coral sand and clear water.... More

Just returned from a 2 week February stay at Joyce and Frank's which we thoroughly enjoyed. They knew our son was in a wheelchair, so before we arrived they went above and beyond anything we could have expected and extended the cement sidewalk to the pier and widened the sidewalk to our room and put smooth boards on the pier...

I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Joyce and Frank's Bed & Breakfast in Maya Beach down in Belize. This intimate B&B is located right on the beach, complete with swaying palm trees, tropical flowers, and includes a private dock and pier that even has hammocks on it for guests...one of my favorite spots! The included breakfast has multiple choices including... More

We stayed at Joyce and Franks for a week in November in Cabin 1. Our little cabin was absolutely wonderful with a very comfortable bed, lots of shelf space in the bathroom and good water pressure (and the rain water tasted fine as well). This resort is in the heart of Maya Beach and in my opinion, the best place... More

After a long and tiring journey, we finally arrived in Placencia. We hopped in a cab from Placencia aiport and in about 15 minutes we arrived at the most beautiful entrance to Joyce and Franks Bed & Breakfast. The sea breeze was refreshing and the grounds were lush with vibrant green palm trees and beautiful tropical flowers. We were greeted... More

11 days of absolute bliss. Joyce, Josephine & Virgilio were available at all times to ensure nothing was amiss. Meals were awesome. Swimming in the pool after the bathtub temperature ocean was indeed pleasing. Local restaurants for suppers were outstanding and affordably priced. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Rooms of good size and quite comfortable especially the a/c during... More

Phenomenal location, great rooms and the view, my god, the view. Perfect little get away on Maya Beach. Close enough to the village for a nice scooter ride, and a 50 minute kayak trip to False Caye for snorkeling. Air conditioning in the beach house worked great, but the shower for the master bedroom needs work, not enough volume or... More

What a beautiful place. The rooms are inviting, clean, and given many personal touches. The beds comfy with super soft linens. The towels plentiful and cozy. What more could I ask for? Not much but was given so much more! The grounds are beautifully maintain by a local gardener named Flowers, who prides himself on creating a lush surrounding. The... More
