Like Placencia itself, this hotel is a unique, comfortable, welcoming place. It is perfectly located, between the beach and the Sidewalk, and has all the amenities and more that you need for a truly magical stay, including a gym, free wifi, full kitchen with coffee supplies, and a phone you can use to make free calls to the US and...

Barbara and Evan: I kept hearing about Belizean Nirvana, and finally experienced its reality earlier this month - and it was all John, Karl and I anticipated. The vista right on the sea was beautiful and I will never forget looking up and seeing all those pelicans! Dining out was great too, but breakfast has always been my favorite meal... More

Located right on the oceanside, the beautiful, clean and comfortable suite we stayed in was perfect. Sitting or lying in the hammock on the verandah taking in the ocean view and breeze felt like being in travel ad for a secluded tropical paradise and yet we were just off the famous boardwalk/mainstreet of Placentia, minutes away from the popular restaurants,...

We stayed 4 nights at Nirvana which was beautifully decorated. We had a full kitchen although we didn't actually prepare meals but easily could have. Barbara and Evan, our hosts, were very friendly and we enjoyed visiting with them at breakfast which was served every morning on the rooftop terrace overlooking the beach. It felt like something out of "Travel... More

My wife and I spent a week here in Spring 2015. It was a great experience in almost every regard. Barbara and Evan are awesome hosts who do everything in their power to make your stay easy and fun, from providing great breakfasts to booking tours and excursions on your behalf. Their expertise, combined with Nirvana's great location and beautiful... More

What a beautiful property! Quite new to Placencia and right on the beach. We stayed upstairs and had a wonderful view with the ocean breezes keeping everything comfortable. Full kitchen large master and amazing master bath. Barbara and Evan and the staff were very helpful. Full breakfast offered on the roof each morning. Still a few things to get resolved,... More

I had the opportunity to stay here for 3 days in February as part of my 40th birthday surprise trip to Belize. We stayed for 3 days then moved to a resort island for 7 days. We were supposed to stay at a different hotel for 2 nights when we came back to Placencia but loved our time at A... More

Relatively new suite hotel, A Belizean Nirvana is incredible! Owners Barbara and Evan have thought of everything and deliver a first class experience. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, kitchen. The water is tap-filtered saving the issue of obtaining clean water to drink. The staff is wonderful. A full breakfast including traditional belizean fare is included and served on the roof with...

Fantastic location, right on the beach and walking distance to everything. Loved the rooms and attention to detail. Even a little night light by the bathroom! Barbara and Evan are incredibly accommodating and welcoming. I love the fact that they keep it all so personal. I also loved the roof top area, great view and lovely setting for breakfast or...

Barbara and Evan have found the perfect formula for a splendid holiday. They are gracious from the moment you book your vacation and anticipate how they can help you get to paradise. From the best view of Placencia, to the adventures they book for you Nirvana truly lives up to its name. The room has everything you could possibly wish... More
