We staid here for a few days april 2014, small scale place 10 or so individual cabanas just a few steps away from restaurant and swimmingpool. Very comfortable, the cabanas have a no glass but musquito net windows, which works really well because there is always a cool sea breese cooling your room. Perfectly maintained grounds with flowers and trees.... More

We stayed here as part of a long visit to Belize. By the time we made our way to Placencia we were tired and really ready to relax. This place was perfect. We stayed in an ocean view cabana, and it was amazing. The room was beautiful, and the hotel grounds are so well kept. The best part about the... More

Singing Sands is an idyllic beach resort, truly enjoyed our time in Maya Beach. 7 day package was a perfect getaway for two winter weary Canadians. Enjoyed alternating days relaxing on the beautiful grounds in the beach hammocks with great day trips. Enjoyed the reef at the Silk Cayes, stopping on the way back to swim with the giant sea... More

We stayed at the Singing Sands Inn following a one week sea kayak trip down the barrier reef. It was a wonderful and relaxing place to stay and rest up prior to returning home. The cabana's were well decorated, very clean and comfortable. The best part was the fact that this is a small, intimate resort where the customer doesn't... More

The strongest quality of this place is definitely the grounds. The rustic cabanas are as beautiful as the pictures and the walkways around the restaurant and between the rooms are surrounded by lush jungle gardens. As mentioned in other reviews, the beach is not great to swim off of. Because Belize enjoys a pretty constant wind off the coast (which... More

Went to the Singing Sands Inn with my 10 year old son and had a great time. The room was a bit rustic but very cool. The food was very good. My son couldn't get enough Fry Jacks for breakfast. The beach and pier overlooking the ocean were sublime. It is very private and serene. There are lots of activities... More

My second time staying at Singing Sands Inn and just as awesome as the 1st. Love that it's away form the main city yet close to diving, snorkeling, and night life. Again, spent a couple nights sleeping on hammocks (by choice) not 10 feet from the water. Please is kept clean and feels like a paradise, litereally! Gotta give a... More

Unfriendly staff, and over priced, below average food and accommodations are what stands out for this inn. The young man who checked us in gave no information about the amenities of the inn and when we asked he was brisk and clearly uninformed about the place. Kayak use was for a fee, unlike other hotels in the area, and the... More

While we appreciate constructive criticism about our resort, we feel this was neither constructive nor honest criticism. The guest had inquired for a two night stay and requested something free during his stay as he was getting engaged at that time. We offered to create a special dinner or something romantic, but when we could not comply with his request... More

Good food. Good service. Rooms are basic but comfortable. The wifi reception in our room was not very strong. There is no privacy with respect to the bathroom, there is no door or full wall (up to the ceiling). There is only a short wall separating the bedroom and bathroom. If you are a young couple or you are not... More

My fiancé and I stayed at Singing Sands for 2 nights last month. We were tired and a little smelly after spending 3 days on the Raggamuffin Sailing trip from Caye Caulker (very much recommended). We were so delighted with the service and accommodations at Singing Sands. The small resort with pier and beach gives a much more private feel... More
