My wife and I stayed at Maya Beach for a couple of nights. We were looking for a nice, quiet place to explore Placencia from and we were not disappointed. The room was very spacious and well kept. The only issue we had with the room was the screens on the window were broken and the screen on the door... More

I just returned from my second week-long visit to Maya Beach with some of my adult children, and it somehow gets better every time. Once again we stayed in Joya del Mar, a stone's throw from the sea with the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep. The food at every meal and the wine at Maya Beach... More

This was a really nice find. The room was right on the beach just a stones throw from the sea. The restaurant is very good with mainly local food (quite spicey so ask for mild). It has a very extensive wine list and they regularly change their house wins.

I had one of the best meals in my life at this resort's restaurant and that alone would get me back to this resort! The room was very nice but as I mentioned, we couldn't lock all of the windows (broken or missing latches) and in the hotel guide, you are warned about theft so it was unnerving sleeping with...

Our family of 4 stayed 3 nights in the Maya Apartment above the Bistro. LOVED it! The terrace was AWESOME! We spent the first night after dinner, relaxing on the terrace watching the ocean. The linens and towels were soft and luxurious (especially important after getting sunburned while snorkeling). The ocean noises lulled us to sleep at night. We didn't... More

This property consists of a number of small structures and types of accommodations spread along a relatively undeveloped stretch of beach eight miles north of Placencia in southern Belize. They all focus around a main building that houses the bistro, reception, a small lounge, and an above-ground swimming pool (most pools in the area are above ground) in the center.... More

Located right on the beach just steps from the sea, this hotel has nice rooms and fantastic service. You can borrow the standup paddle boards, kayaks and bikes to zip around on sea or land. The open air restaurant happily accommodated my vegan diet.

First, please note that this is a review of the hotel NOT the restaurant. The restaurant has been reviewed separately, My biggest complaint about this place is that the website is misleading. The beach is not a long beach for walking. The sand and shore are full of seaweed that they only occasionally clean up. In the meantime, the seaweed... More

I cant say enough good about this place. From the second we walked into the lobby (with helping dealing with a messed up rental car), to the day we left, everyone was great! The owners are VERY involved and great to work with. We stayed in the Jaguar room, and could literally walk out onto the beach from our door.... More
