“Robert's Grove”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very good place to stay in Placencia. Robert's Grove in convenient to the village and the airport. We enjoy a few days touring the peninsula and found Robert's Grove to be a good base of operations. The main restaurant was good but pricy and immensities are great. The little Mayan restaurant was a very nice change from the usual "American" fare. I would recommend Robert's Grove to anyone visiting the area that may desire an "All Inclusive" feel to the accommodation.

Extremely delighted with everything this resort has to offer. The staff was wonderful throughout the duration of my stay. Its 4 minutes away from the airport. It was very quiet and private. I am going to go back as soon as I possibly can.

We have gone many times to Roberts Grove and always have had a great experience, we have also stayed in different islands and hotels in Belize. This one just stands out because it is well decorated, comfortable, with a great range of services. It practical point to for begin scuba dive excursions. Great food! It is expensive but Belize is an expensive place to run a hotel. The service in Belize is slow, the island type behavior frustrating and the lack of infrastructure and local products make
imports a necessity. So congrats Roberts Grove, keep the standards high!

My family and went to Roberts Grove for a 5 day vacation and were very happy with the resort and the diving. We went especially for the diving and were not disappointed. If you go make sure you go to the Glovers reef area, it is about a 2 1/2 hour boat ride (one way) but it is by far the better diving. The reefs within a 1-1 1/2 hour boat ride have beautiful reefs but the lion fish are numerous. The resort has 3 very good restaurants. We stayed in a villa and it was wonderful. The room was cleaned twice a day and the staff were always trying to meet your every need. If you go remember you are on island time, except for being on time for the dive boat relax and enjoy the views.

My husband and I heard good things about Robert Grove's restaurant Habaneros -- they serve up Mexican fare. The food was great, however the staff needs some work. They lacked in attendance and seemed very distracted -- even though we and another couple were the only ones in the joint at 2pm on a weekday... The poor customer service would unfortunately steer me away from Habanero's -- too bad because the food was good.

Dine at your own risk and sit in the area with ceiling fans... there is no breeze in the lagoon.

We spent 4 nights at Robert's Grove in early July- too late in the year for a Whale Shark excursion but the perfect time for everything else that the resort and the region have to offer. The room came with daily continental breakfast buffet in the restaurant (fruit, pastries, yogurt, fresh juice, coffee or tea- all delicious) and transfers to the airport for our flights.

We booked the smallest double room they had, and it was enormous: large and cool, with stone floors, a desk, chairs and love-seat, a private balcony with chairs and a hammock, a flat-screen TV, a mini-fridge, and an air conditioner with a remote control.

Access to AC cannot be assumed in eco-friendly Belize: we chose the 4-star Robert's Grove instead of a 5-star Placencia resort because we wanted an air conditioned vacation.

The resort has its own dive shop and dock on the premises,so it's easy to wait for a weather report before deciding on a particular snorkel or dive trip. We saw amazing sea life on our snorkel excursion, including huge schools of tropical fish, rays, reef sharks, nurse sharks, barracuda, and sea turtles.

Service at the resort and on the excursions was excellent, and the food, especially at Robert's Grove's Mexican-style restaurant, was very good (the resort has half-a-dozen restaurants with a variety of cuisines and price-points).

Placencia's shops, bars, beach, and restaurants are a short ride away by taxi, bike, or golf cart. Also, the tiny village of Seine Bright is an even shorter walk from the resort (we went to Seine Bright to buy sundries- it also has some restaurants that look as if they are worth exploring).

Overall, Robert's Grove is a charming resort hotel and provides excellent value. I would be happy to return, and recommend it wholeheartedly.
