“Everything and more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

This was our second trip to Playa Blanca. We make it a policy never to go to the same place twice. Not only did we return, we chose Playa Blanca for our wedding! Cindy and I were married on the beautiful dock in front of Playa Blanca and everything was made perfect by the owners, Ruth and Graham. The Playa Blanca staff is top notch. Catering to your every need, but not bothersome or smothering. THE perfect place to stay in Ambergris Caye. I am quite sure that we will return for a third visit!

Such a Fantastic place to stay. Tacio is the boat captin and took us on many great adventures. Fishing, Snorkeling, Lobster diving, we also swam with the Nurse Sharks and Ray's. Morena took care of the house and dishes and kept things clean all the time.
What a wonderful time for all 7 bof our family. I would recommend this place to everyone.

This was one of the best family vacations we have ever taken. The house was perfect and, honestly, much better than we expected. The pictures are great, but do not do justice to the property. Everything was super clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the A/C in the bedrooms had the rooms cool within minutes. Even the other livng areas, with only the ceiling fans, were always cool and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need if you decide to cook. We grilled fish and lobster that we caught ourselves for several dinners. The pool was small, but very refreshing after being in the salt water all day. It was also really nice to have someone picking up behind you all day long. The kitchen and house was always immaculate and every time we turned around, our clothes had been washed and folded and placed back in our rooms, although no one ever got in our way at all. To top everything off, we had Tacio and the boat every day at our disposal. We were again surprised by the size and quality of the boat, not to mention the huge selection of high-end snorkelling gear and fishing and spearfishing equipment. We had no problem at all finding great gear for me and my wife and our 15 and 12 year old children. Tacio was super nice and very informative. We caught a lot of fish and even caught about two dozen lobsters which we shared with everyone at the house. We enjoyed learning more about the area from Tacio and Esau. For those times we did not want to cook, there were plenty of restaurants for us to enjoy. We had lunch almost every day at one of the mnay local spots we visited by boat. For dinner, we walked to several local resorts and the food was always very good. All in all, we would highly recommend the house to anyone visiting the area. Much, much nicer than staying in town with the rest of the tourists.

Wonderful villa and absolutely the best staff anyone could ask for equalled the splendor of the Caribbean !
Tacio was superb in every way as a guide and captain.He also cooks a fish,potato, and lobster meal fit for royalty.
Mareno and Esau were the greatest at keeping the home clean and operating smoothly.the home made tortillas each morning were a special treat.
We have booked again November!

We stayed at Playa Blanca Villa last month and I have to say it was amazing! The house far exceeded our expectations. We were a group of 6, myself, my husband, our daughters, and their husbands. The house was very spacious and there was plenty of room for everyone. We got the use of the Toucan Nest so we all had our own rooms and bathrooms which was very nice. Although the house was great, the best part of the entire trip was the staff. I can't say enough about how much we appreciated them. Tacio is the best tour guide, boat captain, source of knowledge, and fishing guide you could ever ask for. Morena kept the house so clean and you never even heard her! Not only that but she did our laundry every day and for anyone that's been on a tropical vacation you can imagine how great it was to come home to a suitcase of all clean clothes! I've decided Esau is just plain psychic, either that or he has hearing that is unmatched. He was always there when we needed him, whether it was getting back from town to unload groceries or back from fishing or snorkeling to unload gear or even to help my husband get the grill going.

So, if you are looking for a relaxed, peaceful vacation set in paradise, definitely check this one out. We are definitely going to go again.

Picking a vacation rental on the internet can be scarey, but we were thrilled when we arrived at this beautiful home right on the beach, and found it to be immaculate, beautifully decorated, and surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens. Tacio, the boat captain, went WAY out of his way to make every day exceptional. He was knowledgeable, fun, and knew all the very best places to snorkel and fish. One day the six of us caught 22 fish, ALL keepers! We had a feast that night. Highly recommended place!

Wow, what a fabulous Christmas we had. 11 family members from 2 to 92 stayed at Playa Blanca Villa and guesthouse. We had plenty of room - sometimes we were a little crowded, but we are a family who gets along. We (my husband and I) had my mother, 92, our two daughters, one husband, one significant other, a 2 year old, one daughter's inlaws (who happen to be friends of ours) plus their daughter (adult). We relaxed, exercised, snorkeled, swam, waded, fished, sunned, did I mention relax? went sightseeing, ate at fantastic restaurants, cooked at home. What a great time by all. We did many activities together and we did activities in small groups. Tacio, our boat captain, took care of those needs. We had a young couple who lived in a house on the premises who took care of our every need. The beach was kept clean for our resident 2 year old to enjoy. Every whim and need was taken care of. If we had any questions, problems there was an immediate response. The only favor I ask is for writing this review is special consideration when I call for a reservation. We love all of you and every one of us wants to come back. Together, by ourselves, we don't care - we just want to come back. When we left, it felt like leaving home. Oh, and one afternoon, after cleaning fish from a fishing trip, lobsters were spotted coming out from under the sea wall. Guess what we had for dinner that night.....thanks Tacio!!!!
