My husband and I stayed at Laru Beya for 8 nights in June and loved it! We booked a 1 bedroom suite and were quite pleased. It was very clean and comfortable, and we loved the full kitchen even though we didn't cook. We did buy some groceries to have snacks and some of our lunches. The view from the... More

Laru Beya is essentially a small condo hotel. The rooms are spacious. The kitchen is fully equipped. Bedroom is large with view of the sea. We stayed in a 3rd floor penthouse with living area and balcony overlooking the sea. The green season discount is currently 25%, making this facility quite reasonable. We stayed for 6 nights and were on... More

Stayed here for one night..... And could not wait to leave. The staff was rude and acted like it was very inconvenient to answer questions about the town, help with luggage, etc..., with the exception of the manager Renee who was lovely. The pool is small, cold, and does not get much sun. The shuttle service to town is very... More

My husband and I traveled all over Belize for our honeymoon and Laru Beya in Placencia was our last stop. It was by far our favorite and the most beautiful place we stayed. Upon arrival we were greeted with a friendly and accommodating staff. Throughout our stay, every member of the staff was friendly and did an exceptional job making... More

This resort is among the best of Placencia. Outstanding location right on the Caribbean, beautiful grounds and exceptional staff. Rooms are immaculate, the pool perfect. Free bicycles for a 20 minute ride to the quaint village of Placencia. Great restaurant on the grounds and our suite had a full kitchen as well. A three minute ride from the airport. Highly... More

We just got back from our stay and we had a great time! All the staff members are very helpful and kind! The girl at the front desk (sorry we forgot your name!) was very informative and always willing to help. Vincent who helps with the activities at the hotel was also very kind. He showed us how to use... More

Arrived on the full moon to whale shark dive (with a non-resort dive boat). The staff were incredibly accommodating, friendly, and helpful. Very clean and spacious room with private bath and large balcony facing the ocean. Lots of natural light. If you are looking for seclusion, peace, beautiful grounds, very nice pool, this is it. This resort is 4 miles... More

This was a great resort. The staff was amazing and did anything we needed, Including arranging a trip into the local doctor when we needed one! The water was pretty rough and a lot of trash does wash up in the tide, but the staff was very diligent in raking the sand clean every morning. The overall best part was... More

Highly recommended! Please do stop in. I stayed there in February with my family and the entire staff was so friendly and accommodating. It was that great I had to revisit it with my extended family and friends last weekend. The decor of the rooms, the property landscape, the resturant's ambience and of course the view from the infinity pool... More

My wife and I spent five nights at Laru Beya in January. We had a one bed roomed suite on the ground floor which opened up straight onto the beach. The veranda had a great double swinging chair and a hammock...very enticing. The apartment was spacious with a good living area and well provided kitchen should you wish to have... More
