“Would not consider anyplace else for a large group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

This place was perfect for what we wanted. We booked through Veronique of Carribean travel. She did a great job and was a wealth of local information on the best places to eat and play. the house is wonderful. Two full kitchens. Three king size masters and a fourth bunk bed room for the kids with two sets of bunks to stack the kids. We rented the whole place and only had six people but it could handle ten easily and a few more if kids double up. Four Bathrooms all of which are spacious. As others mentioned Reuben and Marissa are great. From taking care of the cleaning and doing our laundry to preparing meals if requested they live in a bungalow right behind the house and were awesome! The location is the best, it is a little less than a mile walk on the beach or path to town vs the other places that say they are in Placencia but are up to 8 miles north on Maya beach. We liked roaming around town and nightly stops to the ice cream shop which is a can't miss! The pool is spectacular. 40 feet from the shore of the ocean. Reuben rakes any thing that comes ashore almost daily. The sand is a little coarse so if you are going to walk the beach I recommend beach sandals or water shoes. But don't let that deter you my 6 year old must have built twenty castles in it and found a hundred shells. She absolutely loved it. We have many places we want to travel but if we ever went back here this is where we would stay!

This review is loooong overdue since we stayed here in November 2011. It was our first visit to Belize and I've been wanting to go back and bring friends ever since. Casa del Sol is one of the most beautiful houses (if not the most) in Placencia and has a distinct advantage to many others because it's actually walking (or golf carting) distance to the downtown strip as opposed to the Coppola hotel and other swanky places that advertise they're in placencia.

Reuben and Marissa are the real stars here. They help you with absolutely everything you need whether its directing you to fresh caught fish, arranging an awesome zipline adventure by a local company or a friendly chat.

We stayed in the 1 bedroom apt and it was perfect for us. Very pretty artistic touches and plenty of space. The private pool and huge loggia downstairs are perfect for daytime relaxing. They knew it was our honeymoon and scattered the bed with rose petals for when we arrived, so sweet.

On a personal note- we came here directly from our wedding in mexico and forgot our wedding flutes at the house. The owner found them and shipped them back to the states for us free of charge. It was so incredibly nice of him and I've never forgotten it.

I would definitely say this is the best place to stay in Placencia but I don't want it to become impossible to get a reservation...... ;)

This place is just right! Whole extended family of 13 with 5 children used the whole place. Shade and fresh water pool on ground level; two kitchens, 4 bedrooms, and large deck upstairs, with the beach and ocean just steps away. Everyone loved it, and Placencia!

Room Tip: Borrow or rent a golf cart for shopping or dining runs.

I came on business and could not get a room at resort. I called Jim and Rebekah the owners of Casa del Sol. They welcomed me like I was family. Their hospitality and service was outstanding. the location is a perfect setting for friends or family get together. Private suites Spectacular beach front with pool. Walking distance to the main village. These vacation suites are a home away from home. The suites are spacious and private. Great view of the Placencia village. The open space below is ideal for friends or family get together for an evening of fun and games next to the pool. I look forward to bringing my family and friends to Casa Del Sol next time I visit Belize.

Room Tip: Looking for privacy with friends or family

This residence was absolutely incredible.... We loved it... The suites were perfect for the 4 friends that travelled together... The lower level near the pool is indescribable. It is huge and airy with 2 hammocks... The pictures don't do it justice....Reuben and marissa were another highlight of the trip... So kind, do helpful, so sweet. The house is dreamlike. I wanna go back and have my entire family go to experience thus place... Gorgeous pool, beach is so close... The bikes were definitely helpful...this place rocks!
