“A Slice of Paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2010

We were fortunate to stay at Laru Beya twice in one trip - before and after 6 days of sailing the Cayes. From the outstanding staff to the beautiful beachfront location, Laru Beya exceeded all our expectations! We'd return in a heartbeat!

One word describes my stay at Laru Beya Resort & Villas; the word is AWESOME! I traveled with a group of friends and we had the time of our lives. The food was exceptional--fresh and well prepared. The staff was friendly, helpful and very efficient. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. I spent a great deal of my time laying outside in the hammock, listening to the waves and dozing off. I did not want to leave!
If you want to have a relaxing, enjoyable and memorable vacation, I strongly recommend vacationing in Belize and staying at Laru Beya.

was at Larubeya in early 2006 - a few months after they opened - and loved it. We went back this year and love it even more. Service continues to be excellent and the facility has been kept up quite nicely - actually improved in many ways - more greenery, expanded restaurant. It's even better now! Will be back again I'm sure

We spent 4 days over spring break at Laru Beya and we had a wonderful time.
The staff made us feel at home, with exceptional personal care and attention.
The resort itself is just beautiful, the dining is great, we just had the best time.

I had a wonderful experience staying at Laru Beya Resort. The rooms were first class as well as the service and staff. Great beachside location - I could see and hear the waves from my room which was very relaxing. To sum it up - I felt at home away from home.

After having travelled through Belize & Guatemala for some days (rental car), we were in need of some R&R in the Placencia area. Laru Beya is the place to be!

It is located about 5 minutes (by car) from "downtown" Placencia. The ocean view from the room is breathtaking, the rooms are updated (rare in Belize!) and the service is superb. The pool is also beautifully located near the ocean. When you get there, ask for Lizbeth (sales & marketing manager) and she'll make your experience unforgettable. I read in an earlier comment about the “can do”-attitude and I couldn’t agree more. No request is too much and always performed with a smile.

The adjacent restaurant (Garaballi) serves good food and also has great service. Leo (bar manager) always serves with a smile and ensures your beer is cold!

We travelled with our 7-month old baby so having AC was critical to us. The complementary internet access (in the room) was also a great tool to plan the remainder of our trip.

This is not the cheapest place to stay on the peninsula but worth every penny! When we return to Belize, this will be our first call.
