Maya Beach Hotel was the perfect answer to my need for a quiet place to get away from it all! Just proves that a place doesn't have to be 5-star priced to get 5-star treatment! Ellen and John run a beautiful resort. Most days, my biggest decision was whether to start relaxing by the pool, in a hammock on the... More

We arrived in the afternoon to check in and were informed that we had been upgraded to a second floor suite! The accommodations were spacious, clean, comfortable and had lots of nice extras, like toaster, coffee maker, complimentary drinking water in the fridge, etc. The view from our room was spectacular, about 30 feet from the shore, with a hammock...

We stayed at the Maya Beach at the tail end of our travels though Belize. We were looking for a beautiful and easy spot to relax before rejoining reality. We certainly got what were were looking for. We stayed in the King Conch bungalow, which we really enjoyed. There is a King bed, kitchen facilities, a well-appointed bathroom and a... More

My Mom and I really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Maya Beach. The food was definitely the highlight. Everything we ordered was so delicious and the presentation was even more appealing. The lobster grilled cheese and watermelon salads were our favorites so give them a try. The room was a good size, the futon was a bit hard to... More

Since we arrived to Maya Beach Hotel, Tracey and Marlon were really nice with us. Our room was nicely decorated with natural flowers, and it was neat! The room is very cozy and we had everything we need.(Lot of towels, shampoo, conditioner, etc). The pillows are very soft.. and we had nice view to the ocean from our room. The... More

Right by the road - room was pretty nice but no internet service in rooms. No coffee but coffee maker( motel 6 has coffee) no blow dryer- do provide shampoo/ soap/ conditioner. Do not have umbrella- ppl do not travel w/ those and when you visiting a tropical country that's important to provide. The place is so far out of... More

Hi T & J, Wow, I'm surprised to hear your experience was not what you expected. I'm glad you enjoyed the restaurant and interacting with so many people on my team. I remember talking to you during your first dinner here and I had no idea of your disappointments. While I understand it's too late to communicate with you about... More

Unfortunately, we were in Placencia during a very odd windy spell that had been going on for a week. It remained the same during our stay so we were not really able to take advantage of the waterfront as it was always too choppy for kayaking, paddle boarding, etc. The hilarious thing is everyone kept on saying "oh it will...

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at the Maya Beach Hotel. We were not disappointed by anything. The newly added Kingfish Beach Bungelow was perfect for us. It was steps from the ocean. It provided plenty of room, kingside bed, soft bamboo sheets, large bathroom and mini kitchen if you needed it. We chose to have all... More
