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

What a great place to kick off your shoes and totally relax. We stayed not long enough with the host Ellen and her great staff. Lying in bed in the Jaguar room one could watch the sunrise over the beach while enjoying AC, Bed and Breakfast type accommodations,and Wi-Fi. The restaurant on property was incredible. Fish was fresh, juices were... More

Whenever I need a break and I find the time I go to Placencia. Since I don't like the hustle and bustle I prefer to stay at Maya Beach. It is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful Carribean Sea. The rooms are big, very clean and well equipped. The beach in front of the hotel is small... More

We have been here twice. The first time we stayed around placencia the second we became more adventerous. The food is amazing! We had to force ourselves to leave the bistro (hotel reataurant) and try the local food, it is THAT good. We were happy to see the sane friendly staff on our 2nd visit as our first. This is... More

We stayed in the upper Dreamsicle house for a week. This is a great house to rent if you are wanting a little extra privacy and space as compared to staying in a hotel. The staff was great, the property was well kept, and the Bistro had amazing food.

The highlight is certainly the food. The menu is inspired and everything we ate was delicious. We stayed in the Jaguar room. It was simple and cozy. Great view of the beach while laying in bed. The owners (Ellen & John) were very nice and clearly know how to run a hotel and restaurant. The property is peaceful and laid... More

The food is the real reason to visit Maya Beach - the Bistro is just incredible. The location and beautiful beaches help too. :) We got a great last minute deal and had a full floor of a house to ourselves (Joya Mar Main). It's definitely minimalist - older furnishings/kitchen/bathroom, and the power went out for a few hours in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sitting on a pretty stretch of natural sand beach, the Maya Beach Hotel is a small mid-range 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
