Beach, pool, close to good food (maya beach bistro), very nice and attentive staff, quiet, beautiful view, nice house, bicycles, kayaks, what more could you ask for!? It's too far to bike to Placencia but we have a car and this location is perfect for our needs.

Where to start.. First, we stayed at Maya on a whim because we heard the food was the best in Belize. The trip advisor photos dont really make the beach area look great, so we planned to spend a couple days at Maya Beach and then move for a more resort-y experience. However, that was our biggest mistake in Belize!... More

We went Aug 2015 and stayed for a week and loved everything. I didn't want to leave. The staff is amazing and very helpful, they set us up two trips, one to the Myan Ruins and another for zip lining and cave tubing. Our guide was awesome. Oh and not to leave out the have they haver their own bistro,... More

I stayed here in December in the Joya rental, right before their peak season. First in the backpacker room, but thanks to a special TripAdvisor coupon, I was able... More

I recently stayed at Maya Beach Hotel after a friend who stayed there a couple years ago raved about it. When I finally decided to make a trip to Belize, Placencia was the place I was headed for some sun and relaxation. I can't say enough about this hotel. It was perfect for what I needed; on the beach, quiet,... More

My husband, son and I recently stayed at the Maya Beach Hotel. The room was nice, but the room location was less than ideal. While it fronted the beach, other hotel guests had to walk across our porch on their way to the beach or other rooms. This problem could be solved, by creating a direct path to the beach... More

We stayed in the Jaguar room for 5 nights and it was awesome. The room itself was very comfortable with a sitting area and small refrigerator. Ceiling fans and open windows were all we needed to stay cool. The room is right on a great sandy beach with very calm water and shallow quite a way out. The food in... More

We truly loved this place, quaint, serene and just a quiet gem. The proximity to the beach was the best. Restaurant, staff and the menus was exceptional. The owner and staff want you to enjoy your stay. If you want to go to the center of town, it's 7 miles away and they have a bus to take you.

Stayed in the Maya Apartment. It has 3 Bedrooms, a huge open kitchen and living space and an enormous 2nd level patio. Right below you is the best restaurant on the peninsula. The give you complimentary bikes, paddleboards and kayaks to play with or take a leisurely 9 mile jaunt into town.
