This small hotel isn't grand, isn't luxurious, isn't pretentious, and it doesn't aspire to be any of those things. It is un-fancy and un-fussy, though on any given night in the open air Bistro there will be a few marvelously dressed dinner guests and the look of the place, with the dark woods and pedestal wickerwork chairs and tables, has...

We reviewed many places before selecting Maya Beach Hotel, and found it to be a great choice. We arrived late in the evening, and were greeted warmly. Owner Ellen was concerned we were hungry, and kept the restaurant open to feed us before checking in. The restaurant staff is fun and friendly, and the chef's menu is delectable and delicious....

The owners are wonderful and helpful, staff is fun and efficient, food is to die for. The Caribbean was so beautiful to watch as we ate. There is an intimacy about this place that one does not find often. Prices suited us to a "T".

I recently visited Maya Beach with my two twenty something sons for 5 days. We had a great trip. The Maya Beach was awesome. Our apartment was spacious and comfortable. The staff was wonderful. They helped set up a half day bone fishing trip (we caught a ton of bone fish at a caye 14 miles off shore) as well... More

We stayed 7 nights in the second floor of the Dreamsicle guest house. We like to stay in smaller quirky places and this fit the bill perfectly. The staff are all very welcoming, helpful, and friendly. The location is beautiful. We enjoyed the beach, the pool, the dock, and the open air restaurant and bar. Swimming was good for two... More

After spending a week on a catamaran, we were very happy to check in to this lovely boutique hotel for a one-night stay. Everything about our stay was delightful. They have an incredible staff that goes out of their way to serve the guests. You get the feeling right away that they will do what it takes to make this... More

We'll be back! We spent 4 nights in the Joya del Mar upper suite and one additional night in the Flip Flop Palace. We left one free night between the beach and the jungle thinking that we might want to have some flexiblity but WE DIDNT WANT TO LEAVE - that is why we moved to the FFP. Both are... More

I was dismayed to see that I never reviewed this cute little establishment; our visit here was almost a year ago! Sorry for the delay, and here goes: The Maya Beach Hotel is a lovely, quirky, "boutique" hotel, located directly on the beach. Owned by an American/Australian couple (Ellen and John), the hotel features a few large rooms, an extremely... More

Just 10 minutes north of the town of Placencia, this is a great hotel to do some day tours or excursions and then enjoy the restaurant on the beach. It is clear most of their focus is on the food and restaurant presentation (great coconut encrusted fish) however the rooms are very comfortable and offer a sea breeze too at... More

We stayed in the King Conch room for the last three nights of our honeymoon. After four days out in the mountain pine ridge we were ready for some relaxation, sun, and great food. Everything exceeded our expectations. I booked this place after considering both the reviews on this site and a review from Fodor's, and I do believe Fodor's... More

Sitting on a pretty stretch of natural sand beach, the Maya Beach Hotel is a very small property for couples who needs comfort, but not luxury. Our five rooms are air conditioned with queen beds and nice beach views, and we also offer some beach house rentals in different price ranges. Our Bistro and swimming pool are a gathering place at the end of a day filled with snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking, jungle hiking, spelunking, climbing Maya ruins, or just plain relaxing on the beach. The Bistro was also recently awarded "Restaurant of the Year" by the Belize Tourism Board. ... more   less
