Fear and loathing about prior experiences with B&B's world-wide were quashed almost immediately. Our group of two couples and one close friend rented a nearby house managed by the Maya Beach Hotel. Wow!! A large deep and very clean pool overlooking the sea with palapa and padded sun recliners, kayak, bicycles, very functional gas barbie and the air conditioners in each of the three rooms made for an excellent 10 day experience. The Hotel's staff and restaurant and the nearby Jaguar Bowl as well as the helpfulness of the staff in arrangements for tours, snorkel/diving, trips from the airport to Placencia to nearby sites all made the trip for us a breeze.
