Do yourself a favor and come visit the Seakunga Hostle. Beachfront and friendly. Recommended for all travelers who want an unforgettable experience. The rooms were great and clean. Spend a couple extra bucks and stay in an ocean front cabin. Take the kayaks out for an early morning workout. Come once and you will be a repeat guest.

The best of all worlds. Right on the ocean, on site restaurant with breakfast, lunch and dinner at affordable if not cheap prices. Hosts are so nice and welcoming.

This was a great start to our vacation in Belize! While it is a little outside of town (only 3 miles), we appreciated not being in the middle of Placencia. There are bikes available for use if you're not interested in dealing with taxis. Since Seakunga is a hostel on the beach and not a resort, we weren't expecting sterilized... More

We stayed two nights in one of the beachside cabanas at Seakunga and it was awesome, the location is amazing. The cabana was literally steps from a beautiful beach and was incredibly intimate. Great swimming beach and no one there but you! A wonderful palapa bar with authentic Belizean food--no menu, whatever is on the stove at the moment is... More

We stayed one night in a dorm room during Easter weekend as it was the only place we could find. The taxi ride in and out of town is quite expensive. When we arrived we really weren't impressed there is lots of junk laying around the place and outside the dorm room their is an old car seat, the place... More

My friend and I stayed at Seakunga twice over our time in Belize, and we really enjoyed it. The location is beautiful, and I personally thought it was great to be outside of Placencia which proved to be a pretty big tourist trap with a lot retired people. The prices were standard for camping and dorms in a beachfront location,... More

I do not have much good to say about this place. My bro and I rented a tent that was inside an unfinished building for 40BZD a night which I thought was unreasonable for the quality of the accommodation. Taiwah, the manager i believe rubbed me the wrong way when I told him we were Canadian and he immediately started... More

Beach cabana was fine, and absolutely beachfront. Only grumble is that it is miles out of town! 5 bikes for use, but if you miss out you're in trouble. Hosts were nice.

Seakunga is a cool place right on the water but it's far out of Plancencia town (5 miles I think), so unless you have a car you have to take taxis in and out of town all the time (15 Belize dollars each way, USD7.50). It was raining a lot while I was there so even renting their bikes was... More
