We stayed at the Maya Beach Hotel this August to enjoy the food in their superb restaurant without having to drive away after dinner, and we were delighted by the friendliness of the staff and the comfort of the accommodation. We had the Coconut room on the upper floor with comfortable beds, effective air conditioning and refrigeration, splendid plumbing and... More

My husband and I have been guests at Maya Beach Hotel previously and we loved it so much we decided it had to be the place we stayed when we returned to Placencia this year with our 3-year-old son. I didn't think Ellen & John could possibly improve upon their idyllic, intimate hotel, but they have! We stayed in one... More

If you desire 5 star accommodations, then search elsewhere. However, if you desire a clean, comfortable room nestled along a quiet beach away from the crowds, then the Maya Beach Hotel is the place for you. My wife and I recently spent 8 wonderfully relaxing days in the Coconut Room. Our room was clean and spacious with lots of windows... More

On a recent trip to Placencia, we stayed at the Maya Beach before setting sail aboard a large catamaran for a week. Loved the sailing but, retrospectively, I would have been more than happy to remain at Maya Beach. The Bistro featured the best food of the entire trip. My bed was delightfully comfortable and the icing on the cake... More

We were travelling from Caye Caulker to Punta Gorda and we decided to stop in the middle, just to see the beaches in Placencia. Best decision ever. The beach in front of the hotel is wonderful and the hotel itself is good too. People is very kind and the food in the restaurant is excellent.

Cannot fault it. Beautifully run, staff both charming and entertaining - particularly Cedric and Kenton. We have eaten at several Michelin starred restaurants but really never better. Lobster bread pudding a masterpiece! We'll done John and Ellen. Hope we can return but it is a long way from mid-Wales where we have retired to.

Upon arrival I was upgraded from a single room to a 3 bedroom apartment. The room was lovely, above the restaurant and could have easily accommodated a family of 6. I had a huge private balcony with sectional seating. I peeked into the room I booked in which I would also have been perfectly content but it was great to... More

If you're wanting to relax, eat great food, be pampered by the staff then this is the place for you. The owner came around to every table and spoke to each guest during dinner which is such a great touch. The Staff arranged all of the outings we wanted and made it so easy to just relax and enjoy ourselves.... More

Our short but sweet stay at the Joya Main offered more room than we needed. We originally booked the king conch online but the system apparently double booked the room and so they honored the same rate for the Joya Main. They did tell us it was one of their older units. It was functional but could use a refresh.... More
